The owners Richard & Wendy were very helpful and extremely friendly which made our stay perfect. The location of the B&B is excellent - walking distance to the town centre and great base for exploring the lakes. The room was spotless and the breakfast delicious.

Having been on a tour of the North West, I stayed at the Hillside B&B, having spent the two previous nights in large chain hotels.. well there's no doubt which gave me the best experience. Good VFM, clean and top quality room and en-suite, and a delicious breakfast in the morning. To top of it all of, Richard & Wendy... More

Just come back from this great B & B and had a lovely stay with warm hosts Wendy and Richard. The place is immaculate and our room was comfy and had everything we needed. The breakfast is fantastic with plenty of choice. We can highly recommend this place.

Top floor room, ensuite, small but perfect for my needs. Comfy bed, good shower and great breakfast. All that I could ask for. Also very friendly owners. Many thanks, will stay again. The walk up the hill is great for fitness!

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
