'Easter 2017 with SPICE This is my 3rd visit over a period of 10 years and every time I go the accommodation gets better. My shared en-suite room was very clean and comfortable. Nothing was too much for the staff. The food was outstanding with a large choice of gluten free meals. The walk wise organised walks were well planned and accommodated all levels of fitness to suit a variety of needs. The only problem was getting a bus back from Keswick. Not a great idea over a bank holiday! I will definitely be back. Well done.'

'The overall experience was very good. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The selection of food at breakfast was great, helped by the fact it was sekf-service. We only had dinner here one night but what I had was good and plentiful. I stayed in one of the older single rooms with shared bathroom. It was a good size, clean and had good views of the fells. The location is great with access to Seathwaite, Stonethwaite and Honister right on the doorstep. On the down side, the shower cubicles were a little small. I had to stand in the shower so i could open the door to get out. I would definately stay there again'

'Whilst i cannot fault the refurbished parts of the hotel, the older single rooms leave a little to be desired. It was boiling in the room despite leaving the window open all night. The outside temperature was quite warm, but the room itself was almost unbearable. As i understand it those rooms are being faded out. Otherwise i cannot fault the hotel or staff.'

Wedding venue
5 stars 5

'From the very beginning when we visited Glaramara House to have a tour of their \'Wedding venue\' Our daughter and fiancé (Amy and James) were taken in by the beautiful location but what clinched the deal was the welcome they received from Kevin and David. Hence two years later they got married there, and as the mum and dad of the bride, the help, and advice we received was 10 out of 10. The accomodation was modern and of a very high standard, and we love that the charm of the place has been maintained through their recent refurbishments - ambience maintained. We will defiantly return on our own or with a small group. Gary and I would like to wish Glaramara and their staff a happy and prosperous future, (not sure I should be spreading the word as it may become to popular 😄 ), all the best and see you soon. Ps. The food was 5*'

'Value for money, for the location, which is superb. The nameslates on your self-service breakfast table are a really personal touch. The room was a bit small, but served it\'s purpose, in providing a comfortable bed, and an old-world charm, back to when it was a outdoor adventure hostel in the 1930\'s. Did I mention the location...'

'Excellent value for money with my single room, though small, had adequate storage, basin, and tea-making facilities, all for £45! My only criticism was the fixed times for evening meal and breakfast which may be a problem for some guests. Its location is perfect for exploring Borrowdale and nearby fells, visiting Honister slate mine and via ferrata, and is on the Coast to Coast route.'

A good place to rest half way along the Cumbria Way
4 stars 4

'We had a difficult time reaching the hotel from the walking trails. There was no signage on the trails and we ended up crossing a very wet paddock and climbing over a fence to get onto the property. If coming from the direction of Rosthwaite along the trail from the Borrowdale YHA, the easiest way is to take an offshoot of the trail down to the road a couple hundred metres before the hotel. However, without signs, and without any idea where the hotel is, you don\'t know do to this. The room was spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable - everything we had hoped for as a rest half way along our walk (we stayed at YHAs otherwise, which were far less relaxing). The food was very good but this hotel clearly caters to large groups, and we had the misfortune of being there with a large group, so our dinner felt more like a feed lot. I guess this is also why you have to dine at 7pm. The bar had some great drinks on tap and the common areas were spacious, clean and comfortable.'

Big plus is the Drying Room for wet walking gear - works really well. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
