“nice n cosy”
Reviewed 25 November 2011

On our arrival,we were greeted by Gillian who made us feel very welcome.Our Family room was very adequate,clean and comfortable.The lounge was very cosy and relaxing,nice to chill out with a beer from the bar whilst you watched the tele!! The breakfast was really great and plentiful,i even had a candle put in my grilled tomato for my Birthday (what a nice touch).
would definately recommend this guest house to family and friends

I'd telephoned Green Gables to book an overnight stay. Carol, the owner was so friendly yet professional. I was meeting some friends from various parts of the UK, some of whom also stayed at Green Gables. Parking was easy.
On arrival, my first impression was being welcomed by Carol who has a genuine and friendly manner. She took me to my room which was spotlessly clean and very comfortable.
Breakfast was plentiful with many options, I chose full English breakfast and it was cooked perfectly.
So impressed was I, that I wanted to extend my stay for another night but, unsurprisingly, Green Gables was already fully booked.
The price is excellent value for money and I'd certainly stay there again, and again.

If you are looking for a real value for money, warm welcome in the Lake district this is the place. We arrived, exhausted after a 5 1/2 hour journey, quite late at night. This was not a problem, we found a warm welcome and a very comfortable room and bed.
The food was excellent, parking no issue, the location of the B&B too was excellent.
We were accompanied by my elderely mother law, this also was no trouble at all.
We would all recommende this establishment, it does exactly what is says on the label

Room Tip: Book in advance, if you specify what you want they will help

We stayed at The Green Gables for two nights and found the guest house to be the perfect place to base ourselves during our trip to the Lake District. The room and en-suite bathroom were both clean and tidy, and very comfortable.

Breakfast was plentiful and set us up for the day. Hosts Alex and Carole were both friendly and helpful.

We will both certainly recommend The Green Gables to any friends or family who are looking for accommodation in the Lake District.

We stayed here for 6 days while walking in the lakes district. Our room was on the second floor with no lift. The room was small. That being said, I would still stay there again. It give you a true European flavor. It is a beautiful old house. Our bed was outstanding and the breakfast was good. Carol and Jillie were fun and friendly.

We stayed at Greengables recently and found the room to be very comfortable. The bathroom decor was quite dated and could do with a bit of a spruce up but the private bathroom facilities were generally fine and the shower good. We found the hosts to be welcoming and friendly. The only real downside to our stay was the fact that we missed out on our cooked breakfast. Breakfast times were not written down any where in our room and we must have mis heard our hosts when we had asked for the breakfast times. We recall that we had been told breakfast would be between 8.30 and 9.30 (my husband actually thought we were told it finished at 10am). We arrived in the dining room at 9.20am. We sat for 10 minutes until another guest rang the bell for us. She actually told us that our hosts had assumed we weren't bothering with breakfast and had packed it all up. When our hosts came back in they told us that we were a little late so they had switched everything off and then made us some toast instead. I have no problem with a guest house having set breakfast times, although I don't really feel 9.30 is too late for a sunday morning. I just think that it would have been better if we had been told that although breakfast finishes at ... time you will need to be here by .... time because we stop making our cooked breakfasts then. Putting an obvious little notice in the rooms or entrance hall stating breakfast times would also perhaps prevent this from happening in the future. It was just a bit of a shame really as it ruined an otherwise pleasant stay for us and would probably put us off booking again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
At Green Gables we have a very simple philosophy - clean, comfortable accommodation at a reasonable price. We do not provide all the latest gizmos and gadgetry. Nor do we provide "boutique" style toiletries or membership to gyms or spas. If you really want these then please ask at the time of booking and we will adjust the price accordingly. We do not have a long list of rules and regulations and you will find us more like a "home from home" than a stuffy and strict place to stay. ... more   less
