Having decided to a little get-away in The Lakes, my better half chose Southview after reading the very positive reviews. A wise choice.

Location is great and you can easily see the beauty of the landscape in Windermere. Enjoyed a great meal at the Bistro at the top of the road, wonderfully fresh and staff were friendly. Kate...

When we arrived, we were greeted by Jasmine who booked us in and showed us around -... More

We are very disappointed that this guest’s stay fell short of her expectations. However, in response to her comments we’d like to explain the following: We have twin rooms of different sizes and the guest in question chose the classic twin rather than the superior twin which is a smaller room with a smaller en-suite and this is reflected in...
