Reviewed 24 November 2013

I stayed here as a suprise 30th birthday trip and we couldn't have been happier. the rooms were spotless and well decorated, the bed super comfy and the breakfasts very tasty! We particularly loved the little touches such homemdae biscuits in the room and bottles of water with lemon provided in the rooms. The guesthouse was of such a high standard that we actually came back for an additional night when we were disappointed with our nextstop!

It's also ideally located between Windermere's main street and Barrow-on-Windermere, both just 5-10 minutes walk with a great choice of cafes and restaurants.

I'd highly recommend staying at the Glenville - it's faultless!

Room Tip: I'd recommend paying a little extra for the superior rooms but having stayed in two rooms (one s...

If you think all B&B's are the same you have never stayed at Glenville House, from the welcome till the time you leave (all to soon) we were made to feel right at home. The room was excellent in layout and design, the en-suite was clean and had bath and shower which is unusual but much appreciated. Breakfast was a delight for the choices and cooked to perfection. We would recommend this delightful guest house to anyone. Thanks to both of you for making our all too short a stay so memorable see you again soon hopefully.

We stayed here from the 2nd to the 4th of August and we really enjoyed our stay.

The room on the top floor was excellent and immaculately clean. Breakfast was delicious and there was a large range to choose from. Pete was very hospitable and the home made cookies and fresh lemon water is a lovely touch.

The guest house is perfectly located to explore the area by foot and only a short distance from Windermere lake to soak in all the spectacular views.

My wife and I really enjoyed our trip to Windermere and this was down to the location of the guest house and would definitely visit Glenville House again.

Room Tip: Top floor room has the best view

My wife and I have just got back from spending three fabulous nights at Glenville House. From the first moment to the last I cannot fault Pete and Jayne or their fabulous B&B.
Firstly, the rooms were spotlessly clean, well decorated and with lovely soft beds and thick duvets. The breakfasts were fantastic and the attitide of Pete and Jayne was a joy.
However,the difference between this stay and so many others was the small details. Complimentary home made cakes in the room every day, free use of fridge in the room, free cakes at reception, the use of a hotel umbrella in-case you forgot your own (we had!)
Wonderful stuff. If you are going to the Lake District stay here.....it'll be a lot better than most hotels.

We have just returned from spending our wedding anniversary at Glenville House... the first thing to comment on is the welcome we received from Pete, we have never been made to feel so welcome. The room was superior double and was just beautiful, the furnishings were gorgeous and the special touches were lovely, fresh flowers in the room, homemade biscuits and a treat for our anniversary which was much appreciated, thank you! The en-suite was bright and spotlessly clean. The breakfast prepared by Jayne was really lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Jayne makes the complimentary cakes which are in reception, we had a piece of the chocolate cake which was to die for, and the homemade jam for breakfast too... very clever lady. Pete and Jayne are the perfect hosts and get everything so right, we also met Lynn who was just as lovely. Thank you so much for making our anniversary weekend special and we will definitely be returning and recommending you to everyone who will listen. It was great to meet you all.

We have just got back from a lovely anniversary weekend at Glenville House. It was our first time staying in a B&B and was surprised that it was nicer than most hotels I've stayed in! The room was very quiet, clean, beautifully furnished and the bed was huge and so comfy! It was all the personal touches that made the trip so special too. Homemade cakes and biscuits in the foyer and biscuits in the room were lovely, and Pete was such a welcoming, friendly host, and recommended some lovely pubs in the area. We would both love to come back (maybe when the weather is a bit nicer?!) and will also recommend Glenville House to all our friends.
