Reviewed 28 July 2014

I booked this hotel for my wife and I for 5 nights in July. Its perfectly located between Windermere and Bowness which means that evening dinners were no more than a 10-15 mins walk away. After a warm welcome we were shown to our en-suite room which was clean and and comfortable. There is a car park at the rear of the hotel and 4 or so places at the front. There was a good selection of breakfast choices and although we did not dine the evening menu looked tasty. If you're looking for a good value place to stay I'd say this is an ideal location and we would definitely stay again.

My husband and I literally booked this the night before. We arrived about 7.30pm Friday evening after finishing work and we were more than happy with the room. We had a lovely four poster bed and the room was decorated beautifully. The room was really clean with plenty of tea and coffee facilities. We enjoyed the breakfast on both mornings and the staff are a credit to the hotel. They were really friendly and the service was excellent. We enjoyed a meal on the Saturday evening in the hotel too. We'd had a really busy day the Saturday so after our meal we had a sleep for a couple of hours. We went down to the bar on the Saturday evening for a couple of drinks and we had a lovely chat with the friendly Polish girl who works at the hotel
bar. We were happy to relax in the hotel after a busy day and it is really handy having the bar in the hotel, especially due to the heavy rain on the Saturday night. We would definitely recommend the hotel to stay in and we will return in the future.

Down with my wife and son for a few days,and is an ideal base for day trips round cumbria.
While the family room was a bit of a squeeze,this is a nice and relaxed hotel.
Staff very pleasant,hotel was clean and the breakfast set you up for the day.
Hope to be back soon.

This is our 3rd stay at the excellent Glenburn Hotel.

I cannot praise it highly enough; all aspects are faultless and exemplary. Staff are all very friendly, cheerful, attentive, and helpful.

Rooms are attractively decorated, extremely clean and with lovely ensuites. Food is fantastic, with an amazing choice at breakfast, with cooked dishes done to perfection, and delicious evening meals.

I would definitely recommend a visit.

The cottage is at the back of the property - very private and quiet. The master bedroom has a very impressive ensuite (great shower) with the second bedroom and bunk room sharing the main bathroom. The guidance from the hotel is that the bunk room is suitable for one adult or two children and this is correct. It would be an uncomfortable squeeze trying to fit two adults in there. Thankfully, the rooms worked perfectly for our group of five friends.

The kitchen is well equipped and the open plan dining/living area is very comfortable.

We had dinner in the hotel one night - delicious and good value for money.

The hotel is in a good location - a short walk to the centre of Windermere or a slightly longer walk (maybe 20 minutes) down to the lake.

Great value for money and much more flexibility around dates than any other cottages in the area (all the others I looked at would only take week long Saturday to Saturday bookings).

Thank you for your review and I am so pleased you had a lovely time in the Cottage. It is ideal for families and of course having the choice of dining in the hotel. The weather was lovely too which makes a great difference. I hope you will visit us again in the future

Had another lovely stay at the Glenburn, in our favourite room 13. Only minor grumble mattress was a bit soft and had a bit of roll together, but more down to our personal preference and maybe the weight of my OH. However, warm welcome, great service and lovely food. Can't ask for anything more. See you next year.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay at the Glenburn. Room 13 is always the last 4 poster room to sell, in fact, I have considered changing the number. There are still a lot of superstitious people out there. You obviously had a lovely time at The Glenburn and it is always nice to see returning guests. Thank you and no more roly poly there will be a new mattress awaiting next year.
