Positive Reviews

Hosts with the most.

The owners Glencree are really friendly and welcoming. They will make you feel at home and will do anything they can to help you have the best stay possible. Nothing is to much trouble. Also they are very knowledgable about the local area and will happily

An ideal location.

The hotel is conveniently located between Windermere and Bowness, meaning you can easily walk to both places and you'll have lots of choice when it comes to eating, drinking and shopping. It is an ideal base for getting around the Lake District.

Comfy and clean.

The guestrooms at the hotel are comfortable, well-appointed and with an impressive level of cleanliness.

Negative Reviews

Staying connected isn't easy.

The Wi-Fi at Glencree really needs improvement. The connectivity is pretty poor and in some places it's impossible to get online at all. Once you do manage to log in, you might find that the signal repeatedly drops out.

There might be some sounds.

While the hotel is in a tranquil area, if your room faces the front of the house, you might experience a bit of noise from the road outside. Bring your earplugs if you are a light sleeper.

A bit steep.

There is something of an incline when heading back from some of the walks. This obviously isn't the hotel's fault but is worth noting if you have walking difficulties.
