Only breakfast is there.. you won't get food not even in emergency. Good value for price. The care taker are really good and unbiased, They have...

We stayed here for one night and had a good nights sleep. We stayed in room 3, which was at the street side. We had no problems with street noise. The room was quiet. The bed was comfortable but made a lot of noise when turning around. The shower was okay, but the ceiling is only 1.85m so tall people...

My husband and I spent 3 nights staying at Glencree earlier this month. It was a lovely hotel situated in an ideal location between the station and the boats along the lake. We had a lovely clean room with a large en suite shower. Breakfast was broad in choice and served in the conservatory. The only thing that let it...

The Glencree is situated half way between Bowness and Windemere and both are a 10 - 15 minute walk away. It is run by a very charming couple who can't do enough to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We (a family of three), had room 5 at the top of the infamous spiral staircase. The room was spotlessly...

Lack of wifi was a slight issue but not major. Breakfast was lovely and a very big variety. Overall was a nice place to stay and would...

Stayed at Glencree on a two-night deal. Friendly welcoming staff and clean, spacious rooms. We were given room 4 up the spiral staircase which was ideal in terms of space and facilities except for the lack of Wi-Fi signal which didn't really bother us. Breakfasts served in the sunny conservatory were superb. Glencree is well-positioned between Windermere and Bowness, ideal...

Glencree is located next to the stream and 15-20 minutes walk from the main lake. The couple owners manage the place very well. Uncle is always on humours note to talk to. Only difficulty for us was to climb the narrow ladder to top floor room, as we had big bags. The breakfast has decent spread. We enjoyed our stay...
