When we were met at the door by Carol and Alex we felt we had known them forever. They were excellent fun and our room was lovely, double bed and 2 singles. Heaps of room. The rooms were spotless and a great little sitting room Area with a bar facilities. The staff were also great and we had many laughs...

We received a very warm welcome from Carole and Alex. The rooms were homely and comfortable. Carole and Alex also advised us on the best places to visit. If we come back to Windermere, which we intend to do, we would certainly stay here again. Janet, Winnie, Freda and Gary.

Small guest house, but with a very big, warm welcome. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. Great location in the heart of Windermere with easy access to the town's facilities. Clean and tidy with a large, light dining room. Super breakfast freshly cooked. Bedroom was on the small side and now a bit dated, but comfortable enough.

From previous reviews and the by the pictures on the website we thought we had found a lovely little gem in the Lake District however when we arrived our opinions had changed unfortunately for the worse. Not only did the owner take quite a while to answer the door but when he did he wasn't particularly well presented. Our first...

atchumak, Owner at Green Gables Guest House, responded to this review

The reviewer seems to be under the impression that Guest House and B & B owners sit behind their front doors eagerly awaiting their guests' arrival. We are sorry to disappoint but in our case this is not true. We may be doing other things when the doorbell rings, we may even be using the bathroom, and therefore it may...

Stayed in 10 B&Bs on trip around Scotland and North of England. This was by far the worst. TV didn't (that didn't worry me), tiny room, no parking for car. Building need some money spent on it. I agree breakfast good and staff very friendly but breakfast too late at 8.30 start.

We recently spent 3 weeks in the UK and stayed at 8 different B&Bs. Luckily this was only a one night stay. This by far was the poorest choice. As mentioned in other reviews, the place not only needs updating, but also needs a good cleaning! We had an ensuite room on the top floor. The shower had a non-working...

We recently stayed at the Green Gables for one night bed and breakfast. We felt check-in was quite late at 4:00 particularly as check out is 10:00. We stayed in room 1 so are only able to base our review on this room and communal areas. The reception and bar areas would benefit from modernisation, these areas felt quite dated....

My sister and I stayed in room 7 on the very top floor of the house. It is a twin room with own bathroom on landing outside bedroom. House full of guests but upstairs no noise could be heard. Great stay with wonderful hostesses. Breakfast was huge and very tasty. Lots of laughter and a happy house. Will definitely come...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At Green Gables we have a very simple philosophy - clean, comfortable accommodation at a reasonable price. We do not provide all the latest gizmos and gadgetry. Nor do we provide "boutique" style toiletries or membership to gyms or spas. If you really want these then please ask at the time of booking and we will adjust the price accordingly. We do not have a long list of rules and regulations and you will find us more like a "home from home" than a stuffy and strict place to stay. ... more   less
