As the weather was wet & windy in February, the Southview indoor heated pool was very relaxing. My wife and I were up-graded to a warm, comfortable, twin room with a Jacuzzi bath. Food excellent. Kate & Barry (owners) and Jasmine were friendly and very helpful, The Southview is situated near to bus and train connections, also close to the... More

My double room was clean but a coat of paint would improve it. Shower a bit tight and the sink too small. I didn't realise that the cleaner had opened the window and had not returned to close it, therefore I was cold during the night. Matress was lumpy and uncomfortable. Wi fi is there but kept going off. Cooked... More

This has to be the cleanest property I have ever stayed in, bar none. The young lady who does the cleaning is Jasmine and she is very proud of the standard she sets. Mine hosts are friendly and attentive. The breakfast menu is varied and plentiful. The room was well furnished. The bed sported crisp white sheets and the en... More

Called several times to check the area was OK due to severe weather conditions local to Windermere, grateful of good communication. Breakfast was a delight. Fantastic menu. Friendly and polite staff. A true gem of a... More

Our room was very clean with lovely furniture and furnishings and a spa bath which she explained how it worked, then when she left us to settle... More

Barry, Kate and their staff made us very welcome and our two night stay was more than comfortable. The Superior room was very clean, suitably furnished and made for good nights sleep. The full English breakfasts were above average. We did not make use of the pool but the facilities were good. The bar made for a relaxing night-cap and... More

Made our booking through booking .com as the guest house looked good and reviews outstanding, booked a superior room with power shower. The room was an attic room and once we had composed ourselves after climbing multiple steep stairs ( not mentioned at the time of booking) we found the room to be small to say the least. The room...
