“Beautiful Guest House”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

I have just recently come back from four nights in Windermere with my fiance for his birthday and Glenville is where we stayed. Beautiful b&b, our room was spotless and the bed was huge and comfy. The staff were lovely and pleasant to talk to. Will definitely return at some point.

Glenville House is on Lake Road, Windermere - the perfect location for a break in the Lakes. Our 'superior' room was beautifully decorated, large and very comfortable, with a massive bed and plenty of storage space. There were lovely fresh flowers in the room, a carafe of sherry was kept topped up, as was the container of delicious home made biscuits, and the fresh milk and water in the fridge. Although the bed itself was comfortable, there was constant road noise as Lake Road can be very busy at times; we had such lovely warm weather (in July) that we had to leave the windows wide open (and the fan going)! In cooler months you would probably be far less affected by the road noise as the windows are quite substantial.

The ensuite was clean - which is the most important requirement - but pretty ordinary, especially when compared to the bedroom. Basic toiletries are supplied, plus a friendly rubber duck to keep you company in the shower/bath!

The cooked breakfasts were delicious - we are sure they use fresh, locally produced ingredients. There is plenty of other food to eat at breakfast as well, for those who prefer continental. Complimentary cakes and sweets are left for guests in the lobby area. You won't go hungry here!

There is on-site parking which in our view is a necessity.

The owners/staff are very friendly and welcoming.

There are loads of B&B's in Lake Road, and we are pleased that we chose Glenville House out of all of them.

Room Tip: Choose superior if there is availability.

Pete and I are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. We are sorry you did not think our en-suite lived up to your expectations - We took over the B&B in May 2014 and plan over the next two years to upgrade all our en-suites and bedrooms.

In the mean time we look forward to welcoming you back for a future stay :))

Stayed via laterooms.com. from the first impressions very friendly welcome, Pete - one of the owners carried our case up to our first floor room. The room itself was lovely, tastefully decorated, clean and well appointed, bathrobes, hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities.Ensuite very clean with shower over bath.
After a comfortable night sleep, hot water shower with option for fresh towels if required.
Breakfast in light airy dining room with plenty of choice. Selection of fresh juice, continental breakfast on a self service, fresh fruit, the comprehensive menu offered a choice of different cooked food, all served with an abundance of tea or coffee and hot toast.
Pete looked after us very well with Jane cooking up superb breakfasts.
Definitely an "A team "
Altogether Pete, Jane and their hard working staff make a fantastic team. We had a great time and would definitely stay again and would highly recommend Glenville House.

We visited this stunning guest house for my birthday weekend.
The welcome we received was warm and friendly. Our room was beautifully decorated and had all we needed for a very comfortable stay.
The bed was unbelievably comfortable and the small touches (like fresh milk and iced water in the fridge) made us feel right at home.
The main reason for booking at the Glenville was the fact that they offer gluten free options for breakfast. I had gluten free pancakes with bacon and maple syrup on the first morning and the full english breakfast on the second and both were absolutely delicious. My partner had the full english too which he thoroughly enjoyed.
We will definitely be back.

Thank you for your brill review!! Pete and I were delighted to hear you both enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to welcoming you back soon :))

We believe its important to try and accommodate guests dietary needs where possible. This is why we do gluten free sausages/ bread and pancakes as well as our vegetarian option.

We stayed at the hotel at the weekend as our daughter was doing a charity walk . The location is good and there is on site parking which is a real plus The standard of the bedrooms is well worth the 4 stars they have. For me the home made buns and biscuits in your room was a lovely touch as were the fresh flowers. I cannot recommend this place enough it really is very good.

We arrived on Friday 18th July for a 2 night stay and were 2 hours early for check in.
We asked Jane if we could leave the car and go for a walk until check in, to which she said it was fine to check in as the rooms were ready, which was a relief after a 7 hour drive.

The room was clean and modern with everything you would need and more.
There were 2 chocolates left on the pillows, homemade biscuits in a little jar, fresh milk in the fridge for tea and coffee and fresh flowers. There were also fresh cakes by the front door to which you could help yourself to.

The bed was comfortable and we slept well for our 2 night stay. The bathroom was a bit of a squeeze, but was very clean and had everything we needed. In the morning you had a choice of hot breakfast with a vegetarian option from a menu and a cold selection too.

We asked Pete for some advice on where we should visit, and places to eat whilst in the area, and he was more than happy to help, and spent some time talking us through recommended restaurants and local attractions.

The hotel was positioned well for walking to Windermere and Bowness-on-Windermere and took us under 10 minutes to each location as it was fairly central to both.

Overall this was a perfect little hotel that went the extra mile with its guests and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to visit the lake district.

Sometimes you take a chance and hope that everything as advertised on a web site fully delivers. This place does. Location is just right for Windermere and all local amenities and all that the Lake District has to offer. Parking on site. Rooms are top class with all the comforts you need. Breakfast is excellent. You have a choice which is refreshingly unusual for a B & B of this cost . If you are undecided , the very helpful host and hostess are at hand to guide you. I have no connection with this place but , having stayed at many B & B's in UK and Europe I would place this in the top 5. And friendly to motorcyclists as a bonus.

Room Tip: 2nd floor is best if you have heavy luggage to carry
