Stayed here last September, sorry for the late review! Had a lovely 2 night stay here in a very nice room with a comfy bed. Great location for the town and lake. Nice and friendly owners, great breakfast! We will definitely return here when back in Keswick.

Phil and Eleanor are such a warm and friendly couple. We were made so welcome and after my unfortunate fall and injury they were so kind. I cannot recommend their hospitality any higher... their house is located in peaceful Portinscale with outstanding views of Skiddaw. A perfect base from which many beautiful walks can be enjoyed. Both bedrooms are very... More

We have found the best B&B in Britain. I can say this with certainty as I have stayed in a few. This one has it all. It is run by a friendly couple who can not do enough for you, but they are not in your face all the time. You are welcomed to a very clean and well kept... More

We stayed in the Skiddaw en suite room with the added bathroom. White robes and slippers awaiting. Free Wi-Fi. Lovely breakfast and plenty of... More

Wow! This b&b is amazing, the views from the rooms of skiddaw are unbelievable. We had the room with the roll top bath which was a luxury after a day walking the fells. The rooms are very comfortable and the breakfast is superb. This place is definitely worth a stay. Well done Eleanor.

We stayed here two nights at the end of a week spent in and around Keswick and I wish we'd just spent the whole week at Hillside! The welcome, the views, the room, bathroom and breakfast were all fantastic, especially for the price. We stayed in the room with a bath - the decor of the room itself was not... More

Thank you Eleanor and Phil for a lovely 2 night stay on our way back from Scotland last week. You made us feel very welcome and nothing seemed too much trouble. What a lovely house you have and the beds, rooms and breakfast were all wonderful, not to mention the very pretty garden. Barney and Sophie (dogs) also had a... More
