A very nice guest house in a very handy location. The owners were friendly and full of helpful tips for the area. Breakfast was lovely. My only fault would be a very small bathroom in my particular room but dont let this put you off. Its very reasonbly priced and the fluffiest and biggest bath towels ever! Room kept very... More

Well where do you start with this place?? From start to finish our stay was the most pleasant and relaxing it could possibly be!! The room: No. 1, has memory foam mattress and pillows, a very expensive investment!! My wife told me after night one that it was the best nights sleep shed had in a long time! There was... More

Pleasant B&b well situated within walking distance of the town. Room and bathroom were spacious and very comfortable and nicely furnished with plenty of light. Good nights sleep and little noise. There is a guests sitting room where you can help yourself to coffee,hot chocolate etc. Breakfast was also good and you can park in the courtyard which is a... More

We always have alternatives to our home made marmalade including home made strawberry jam which most people find delicious - perhaps you didnt see them for whatever reason. We sell other jams to support Hospice at Home and 100% of the proceeds go to this worthy charity. More

It's just outside the center but still perfect place to stay,only a 5 min walk to the center. The owners where also very helpful with everything you what to know or do there and hiking trips where also close by.I would recommend to walk up to the Cat bells because the view is spectaculair.

This was my first time at the Sunnyside guest house but it won't be my last. The hosts are warm and friendly. The rooms were lovely, comfortable, good size and very clean. Everything you required was there. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and I would recommend this guest house just for that, however, the whole package is brilliant.

We have now stayed with Sean and Anne at least once a year for a number of years, enjoying their warm hospitality and good humour. They maintain Sunnyside to a high standard, and breakfasts are a real treat. The availability of parking - in the centre of Keswick - is a real bonus. Highly recommended.

We stayed three nights for sightseeing in the Lake District. Room 8, at the top of the house, is a bit of a climb but worthwhile for the peace and quiet. Double-paned windows protected us from street noise. Our host, Mr. O'Farrell, goes out of his way to help: carrying our (heavy) luggage upstairs, cooking us excellent breakfasts to order,... More

Stayed in single room for a short break. Room was bright and airy with nice modern furnishings. Very welcoming and helpful hosts. Lovely tasty breakfast with several courses & options to choose from. Handy location for town centre with shops restaurants & bus stops nearby . Car park is an added bonus .

We stayed here for two nights last week and were very impressed with the cleanliness and pleasant decor of the guest house. Although the showers were a little small they were modern, clean and adequate. Our breakfasts were excellent with a good variety of choices. Our hosts were very friendly and most helpful. We will definitely stay here again on... More

Thank you - glad you enjoyed most of the experience - bigger showers do exist in other rooms. To fix the smaller ones needs major re-construction I'm afraid. Note to anyone who needs more space in the shower - ring first and we can oblige! More
