Everything about our stay was perfect. Keith and Sally were very sweet and helpful, always willing to go the extra mile for their guests! The room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast was delicious, and the location made it easy to explore the town center! Keith and Sally were excellent hosts and made our stay absolutely lovely! Highly suggest Glencoe...

Very polite family with a wonderfully clean, spacious house. Room was excellent size, temperature and price. Breakfast was beautiful and there was even cake left on the side for when i stumbled back in late that evening. Could ask for a nicer place to stay. Will be returning in the not too distant future.

Having just returned from a 1 night stay here I had to let other people know what an amazing place it is. Rooms spotless and very comfortable, breakfast amazing, (love the plum bread) and the hosts fantastic. Thank you for a wonderful stay - we will be back, hopefully later in the year.

Had a lovely night's stay at the Glencoe Guest House at the beginning of January. Keith and Sally were the friendliest and most helpful couple and nothing was too much trouble. After struggling to find somewhere that would accommodate my 2 year old (most places we tried took dogs but no children under 8!!!) they welcomed us at short notice...

Brilliant review, many thanks. We welcome children, once they can sleep through the night, and we also welcome, where we have the space, one night short notice stays. We aim to be customer focused and try to encourage families coming to enjoy the wonderful Lakes. So pleased that you had a good stay and we look forward to seeing you...

Keith and Sally were inviting, gregarious, and knowledgeable hosts, directing us to top food spots and hiking areas during our time in Keswick. The breakfast was excellent - I had the vegetarian Cumbrian and my dad had the kippers. The accommodation was top-notch as well!

Many thanks for the kind review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again soon. Parking spaces can be at a premium on occasion, but we always ask guests if they encounter a parking problem to let us know as we can move our car for the guests and we can find another space....

I stayed here in May whilst doing a challenge in the area. The couple were friendly and helpful. The homemade cake on offer was superb. I loved staying there. Clean friendly. Accommodated me when I arrived early and my room was not ready. Cannot fault it.

Visiting family in Keswick just past New Year and needed a place to stay for just one night. Usually over this time of year B&Bs say you need to stay for a minimum of 2 nights but Glencoe welcomed us with open arms. Keith and Sally where welcoming from the moment they opened their door.

Stayed here for the second time over the Christmas period and again I can't fault the superb welcome and hospitality that Keith & Sally provide. There was fresh cake on arrival, the accommodation was clean, tidy and decorated to the highest standard and the breakfast was knockout. The value for money is superb.
