I stayed here last night after taking part in the Great North Swim, as a base post-swim. It served that purpose, but is nothing special. The room was very small and rather warm, the decor a little tired, the bed rather lumpy. The staff are friendly in the main, the breakfast was palatable but not great. A little overpriced, but that was probably due to the charity event. Not the best hotel, not the worst.

Room Tip: the rooms in the annexe building off the car park look a bit less scruffy

Disapointed in this review.. guests know exactly what they book before they arrive. If you book a double room with a double bed you are hardly likely to have twin beds in your room on arrival . The room is fresh and modern .. not the biggest room in the hotel but our classic double isn't but suitable for one or two night's stay. Bit sour grapes i think ...... unfortunately they had to share one bed and if we had a twin i would have moved them.

We stayed at the hotel with our grown up children and elderly relatives on a busy weekend. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the staff were polite and helpful. There was plenty of choice for breakfast however the restaurant menu was limited. Table service was good even when busy. The location was good being situated 10 minutes walk from Windermere and 20-25 minutes walk from Bowness piers, (which is uphill on the way back). There were plenty of other amenities close to the hotel. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend.

My wife, two children (8 & 7 years ) and myself booked this hotel on the back of reviews and we were not disappointed. We stayed in the River cottage and it was fantastic, the kids absolutely loved it as did my wife, I also found it relaxing as the children could play without disturbing anyone. The cottage was spacious, the kitchen was well equipped leading to a dining area/lounge, the 3 bedrooms are spacious with one en-suit with a fantastic walk in shower. The hot water went off and the hotel owner could not have been more efficient at rectifying the problem, within 20 mins the plumber had arrived and the problem was fixed (wish I could get a plumber as quick lol). Sadly it was time leave, To our surprise when we went to check out and pay the bill the owner had not charged for the evening meal (which was absolutely delicious) . We will most certainly be booking again. Thanks for a fantastic holiday.

My husband and I stayed 1 night at the Glenburn because we always liked the look of the hotel when passing, it is in a perfect location, the room was nicely decorated, cosy and the bed was really comfy just what you need after walking all day. The staff are very friendly courteous and helpful nothings a bother to them, the breakfast was well cooked and tasty and service was very quick despite a lot of the guests arriving together. We enjoyed our short break here and felt relaxed we would definitely recommend..... it feels like home from home.

Stayed as a couple for a short break and had to say that the hotel was lovely, the staff were pleasant, polite and very helpful. The hotel itself is very clean and the room was decorated nicely, modern yet in keeping with the traditional style of the hotel. Would definitely recommend to others and would stay again. The only downside is the uphill walk from the beautiful harbour, which is only 15 minutes walk away to get there down hill but twice that getting back up! Not for those wearing wedges or heels! (Note to self!)
