Stayed here for a few days, dinner was excellent and good value, surrounding area lovely, staff very helpful, accommodation fairly basic but I think the price reflects that, bar available too .

Sorry for the delay in responding but thank you for your kind words. It is good of you to make the effort. We always take on board what is said. We will be upgrading facilities over the next couple of winters so, hopefully, you will notice a difference on your next visit. Best Wishes.

The Glaramara outdoor centre is uniquely placed with fine views of mountain scenery from the front door and lounge window. It may be unfair to pigeon hole this establishment as a cross between hotel and youth hostel although an outdoor centre is always going to be somewhere in between. The current owners have started on a huge task of upgrading and improvements after decades of under investment. The dining room has had a facelift with a recent addition of a bright and tasteful window extension while the buffet breakfast is of a reasonable standard and the inclusive evening meal is mostly of restaurant quality. The self service packed lunch in the lounge after breakfast is a top idea with plenty of choice. I am unqualified to talk about the recent modern extension to the side of the building but my experience of the main house upstairs seemed to show small improvements so far, as it may be difficult to improve on the floorplan layout. Although the beds, sink and adjacent toiletry space were better than adequate, I felt that for a walking centre, there was a lack of space for the additional clothes required. The showers were of a similar standard that looked and performed well enough but there was difficulty with opening and closing the external door unless of course you enter and exit with just a towel !! ... and while I'm on that topic, I'll leave the ladies to talk about there own problems with their shower and toilet room.
Lastly, on a more positive note, the addition of a separate TV lounge and reasonably priced bar provide the guest with other distractions after a hard day in the hills.
In conclusion... classic location, great food and ... accommodation, it's not luxury but give it a bit of time and patience... and who knows.

We have many happy memories of Glaramara, awesome staff, great facilities and very welcoming. David the owner is passionate about making this place better and the last 12 months have seen massive improvements. What makes this place special is the great location and very high standard of food. Would seriously recommend this place

A little after the fact I know but thanks for the great positive comments about Glaramara House. It was good to see you back for a quick visit on Saturday. See you in December and thanks for booking with us again.

I stayed here for a corporate event and found the standard of accommodation very good for what we paid. All meals were included and there were adventure instructors available to keep us occupied. The location is beautiful.

Accommodation is mostly on a twin sharing basis with multiple bathrooms and showers on the same floor/corridor.

There was a full buffet cooked breakfast and/or cereals, a packed lunch dinner and three course meal in the evening.

All in all very good indeed.
