Location is great, about half way between Bowness and Winderemere. Our room was very nice with a huge bed, and I do mean huge. I couldn't fault the room at all, in fact I couldn't fault the place at all. Peter & Jayne have everything covered, water in the room and other "little extras" - all of which really nice...

Just had a short stay at Grenville House in lovely Windermere. The hotel is compact and neatly placed between Windermere and Bowness but what made it really special was the care and thoughtfulness of the owner, Peter. There were flowers in the room plus a selection of home baked and delicious biscuits. The rooms were cosy and really comfortable and...

I was blown away with the attention to detail in this hotel. Homemade cookies in our room, chocolate mint cake on the pillow, kettle, iron, ironing board all in the room (and everything complimentary). Loads of choice for breakfast and wonderfully cooked. Our room was beautifully furnished and clean, the guest house is positioned well on the road between Windermere...
