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

Excellent Guest house, very clean and spacious en-suite room. Large lounge for guests situated on the first floor with excellent views. Very close to Keswick main town and parking space which is a bonus with the amount of cars parked on the roads. Owners very polite and helpful and breakfast extremely good. Highly recommended.

Excellent place with a great location in Keswick, including off street parking. The owners are outstanding hosts -- I appreciated their care, congeniality, thoughtfulness, and accommodation for vegetarians. Breakfasts are first rate. Rooms are large and well-appointed and there is a very comfortable lounge. The centre of Keswick is a short walk. I highly recommend Sunnyside GH and Keswick and... More
