Property Owner Reviewed by FahadJun 2022 "This is the second time I have sayed at glaramara and sadly it seems to have deteriorated within a year." The bed linen in the twin room smelt stale like it had been left in the washing machine too long and the room had a urine/sicky smell which reminded me of an old people's home .I appreciate it is a pet friendly lodge but the whole place did not smell fresh and didn't feel very clean which was very off putting.there was dog hair around and underneath the double bed .the towels in the double room were also hard and crispy . My first stay a year ago was lovely however we left feeling rather disappointed on this occasion and it is unlikely we will book again. I am sorry that you found Glaramara had deteriorated. The beds including mattresses in the twin room were replaced less than 4 weeks ago. Perhaps there was a new mattress smell - although we were staying at the time and didn’t notice anything? We deep cleaned the lodge before Easter including under all the beds. Our cleaner has worked for us for a long time and our feedback is normally really positive.Edit 3/6/2022 The cleaner and I inspected the twin room and there was no sign of any staining and we couldn’t detect any unpleasant smells. Property Owner Reviewed by BelindaMay 2022 "Beds and couches a little tired." Thank you for your feedback which we have passed across to the owner to look into further. We hope this will not deter you from returning and we look forward to welcoming you back. From the owner:- The twin beds were brand new at the start of May 2022. We are replacing the sofas at the end of August 2022. Property Owner Reviewed by DerekMay 2022 "Just got back from a lovely week, the location was very good for walks from the door and an easy walk into Keswick!" The lodge was excellent with beautiful views from the balcony, it was spotlessly clean and comfortable with all amenities included which added to our amazing stay! Will definitely return in the future as we have so much more to explore! Glad you had a great stay. Property Owner Reviewed by AllanApr 2022 "Top gaf, make sure you walk round derwent water with your dog, eat at the pheasant over the road it’s top" Thanks for the feedback. The walk around Derwent water is great - and if that feels too far, the number 78 open top bus or the Kewick launch are great for the return journey from Lodore. Property Owner Reviewed by KieronApr 2022 "Couldn't fault it at all excellent ." Would stay again Glad you had a good stay Property Owner Reviewed by WayneFeb 2022 "We have just returned from a 7 night stay at Glaramara." The lodge is in a lovely position with views from the rear decking and although site is close to the main busy A66 and roundabout you don’t really notice or hear the traffic. Few minutes walk into town and well worth it as street parking was a problem as busy. The lodge is very well equipped with everything you could need and comfortable and warm. Our only criticism would be to replace the tube bedroom and bathroom lighting to white light rather than yellow as a little dark to see. Also, I couldn’t find a comfortable pillow as they were all a little flat and lumpy. I would probably take my own for our future visit. Other than that lovely holiday accommodation. Many Thanks! Thank you for your feedback. We hadn't intended replacing the lights, but we will have another look at them. Property Owner Reviewed by KeithFeb 2022 "Absolutely loved our stay at Glaramara, was everything we were expecting and the surroundings were beautiful, would highly recommend." The only downside was the constant reminder I kept getting via email of everything we needed to do before we left such as take bedding off, hoover, no pots to be left out, no sign of dog hair etc the list was endless so we felt like we had to leave a day early so we could spend a good couple of hours cleaning which we did cutting out holiday short. I’m all for having a good clear up before I leave but I’ve never had so many demands when stopping anywhere previously. We have 2 dogs who also loved it but to say there can be no sign of dogs once we have left is crazy, surely that’s what cleaners are for. All we ask is for guests to leave the property as they find it. Requests to strip beds and wipe down surfaces are to minimise C-19 risks for our cleaners.

In a quiet location with great view from the patio and only a short distance from the lovely town of Keswick. Had a brilliant 5 night stay here (despite the weather!) and would definitely recommend. Thank you. Thank you for your feedback. If only we could fix the weather! Glad you still managed to enjoy your stay.

Property Owner Reviewed by JonJul 2021 "We've stayed at Glaramara twice before and have always been very happy with the lodge and the location." Unfortunately this time 2 weeks after we completed our holiday I am still waiting for a refund of the housing bond. We left the lodge immaculate and even offered to pay for the plastic fish slice which snapped. It was already very worn and we only used it once before it broke. I waited on the telephone last week for some time before I was told the refund would be in my account mon/tues. Yet again I waited 10 minutes on the phone earlier and gave up when nobody answered. Due to us enthusing about the property 2 sets of friends have booked Glaramara and we have another week booked in September. If I am going to have to beg for my refund each time I go there I will certainly not be booking any holidays there in the future and shall inform friends about the difficulty in getting our money back.
