Nice wee stay
Lovely wee guest house for a couple nights stay. Self check-in so didn’t meet the owner but the lady serving breakfasts and who also cleaned the rooms was really friendly. Cooked breakfast but not too much! There’s nothing worse than a huge mound of food on your plate! Continental also available. Well located between Windermere and Bowness and also Within walking distance of Lake Windermere.

2/10 Poor

Worst toilet ever
The property was clean but that BIRCH room at that property is the most uncomfortable room every. Youe view is a roof top and back of the neighboring property horrible. We spoke with the owners , they balantly did nothing to asist us although the hotel was empty and we were staying for a whole week . The wife Jayne was rude and unpleasant to deal with not good host. Peter the husband was a bit better. We were very uncomfortable in that room ,the bathroom is very poky and uncomfortable to sit on . I could not wait to come home to my comfortbale house.

This is the place you’re looking for….read on!
Picking the right guest house can take hours with so many to choose from. If you’re visiting the Lake District, allow me to help save you some time and make that decision easy. Peter and Jayne were wonderful hosts, the room we had was great, with great facilities including our own little fridge. The breakfasts were lovely and served piping hot…. a rare thing I’ve found in my travels. Lovely homemade jams were a nice touch! The bed was really very comfortable…. and I know everyone has their own preferences in types of mattress firmness… but I felt like I was sleeping on a cloud! Grenville House is on a road, sitting 10 minutes walk from either Windermere or Bowness, depending on if you turn left or right as you leave the building. I couldn’t have been happier with my choice of somewhere to stay on this trip, and based on the visitors book, plenty of their clients are returning customers - which says it all. I haven’t been to the Lake District for many years, but wouldn’t even think about trying anywhere else to stay. Thank you and best wishes Peter and Jayne.
