Our family stayed for 3 nights in the River Cottage over the Easter weekend. The accomodation was very good. Plenty of space for the 5 of us and it was very good value. We chose to cook our own breakfasts to avoid the rush in a morning but ate in the restaurant for dinner - the steak and sticky toffee pudding were lovely. The service was very good and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We had the best of both worlds choosing the cottage in the hotel grounds. Thanks. I am sure we will use you again.

Room Tip: River Cottage is spacious for families and in the hotel grounds. You can hear the river flowing out...

Thank you for your review. Very pleased you enjoyed your stay in River Cottage and the weather was so nice even though it was cold. Sticky Toffee Pudding is lovely it is our own special recipe ( top secret of course ) I will pass your comments on to the staff. Hope you return to River Cottage again sometime in the future.

Just got back from a 2day short break at the Glenburn Hotel. The staff were very friendly and gave us a warm welcome. The room was very spacious, clean and warm and the 4 poster bed made it a bit special. The breakfast was good as were the two evening meals we had and nothing was too much trouble with the staff. The hotel is in very good location - 10 mins stroll from Windermere Village and 15 mins from Bowness. We would recommend the hotel to anyone looking for a good quality hotel in the lakes

We had booked a 3 day break before we knew what the weather had in mind. The room we booked was a small standard but was more than adequate for what we needed, it was very clean & welcoming. When we arrived we were made to feel very welcome by the staff, especially the young lady who I believe was called Marta( appoligies if i got this wrong). The breakfast was fantastic every morning & nothing was too much trouble, we also booked an evening meal one night and again the food & service was fantastic. Our stay overall was very pleasant but we couldnt get to enjoy the Lakes as we would have liked so we will be returning again later this year & will definatley be booking back into The Glenburn, but may treat ourselves to a Jacuzzi room

We have just returned from a weekend break to celebrate a special birthday. We stayed in a 4 poster bed room which was quite spacious, clean and warm (it was cold and wet outside). The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was good with plenty of choice, we opted for an evening meal on both nights which was freshly cooked to order which we really enjoyed. We would recommend this hotel and stay again.

We were celebrating my son's birthday and had 2 adjacent superior rooms.We arrived much earlier than stated time and went to reception to ask if we could leave our car in the excellent car park.We were greeted by a delightful young woman( Marta,we discovered later,)who assured us our rooms were ready and would we like to check in? We did so,and were delighted with our rooms.Spacious,immaculate and warm (it was perishing outside,with a cutting wind,) kingsize bed and beautiful soft furnishings.Food,particularly dinner ,was delicious,well presented and served by the wonderful Marta.All the staff at Glenburn are friendly and helpful,and we will return.
