Pleasant room although suffered from paper thin walls. The conversation could be overheard in the adjoining room. The breakfast was excellent. However, the owner does suffer from a particularly patronising attitude tending to talk down to you rather than to you. Woe betide you if you enter the sacred breakfast room before the clock has struck 8.00am. If you arriving... More

This is a clean, quiet and friendly B&B. A couple of hundred metres uphill from the town centre, very handy for the Brewery Arts Centre. Good breakfast, catering well for vegetarians but the meaty stuff looked good too if that's what you like. Seem to use local suppliers, which is always nice. Parking is in nearby streets and they provide... More

I would definitely return to this B&B it is fantastic. I visited the Hillside for a long weekend and had a lovely stay. The owners who run the B&B were friendly, welcoming and helpful offering suggestions of local places to visit and restaurants to eat. I had mentioned when booking online that I am a vegan and they generously provided... More

Hotel Quality, B&B Service and friendliness, very close to the town center but tucked up the hill just far enough away to get the peace and quite. Always choose to stay here on trip to the Area.......

We Had a lovely stay at the Hillside, The room was beautifully presented, very clean and there was every thing we needed. The location was perfect, a short stroll into the town centre. The hosts more than exceeded our expectations, pleasant friendly and more than happy to chat with passion about the beautiful Lake District. We were given alternative directions... More

Breakfast is beautiful with plenty of choice using local produce. I didn't tell them in advance that I was gluten free however at breakfast they asked if I... More

This delightful guest house is well worth visiting. It is spotlessly clean and a lovely breakfast is served. My room (Room 1) at the back of the house was quiet with a great view. I really appreciated the tips for sightseeing given to me by Richard. The lovely weather in the Lake District was a bonus!

Hillside is a lovely property. It is immaculately clean. The hosts are both very friendly. The room (room 6) was on the second floor and although it is smaller than the other room, had a double bed with loads of space to walk right round it. There was a comfy chair to sit in and a double wardrobe and set... More

Very comfy room, great breakfast very tasty with local produce and very good service. Would recommend to all. Clean rooms very well equipped, tv and tea/coffee facilities. Quiet location yet still very well located for town centre and nice pub up the road.
