Nice cosy and comfortable rooms. Breakfast was amazing fantastic. The pool was nice and clean but a bit cool. Centrally located near the train station & tour office making it very convenient. A nice walking distance to the lake.

Our room was so small that we had to keep closing out suitcases to open the room door or the closet door. WiFi was free but Kate couldn't help us with logging in - eventually when I figured it out, it was a simple glitch. We were there during a bank holiday and they had a new server for breakfast...

Visited first time Lake District. Booked in this hotel for 2 nights one of the luxury double room with spa bath. The room was great, nice and warm. Bed comfy and the bathroom really stylish. Breakfast is complimentary and service is great! Only a tiny recommendation: the water in the pool (they have an inside pool) could be warmer during... More

Having decided to a little get-away in The Lakes, my better half chose Southview after reading the very positive reviews. A wise choice. With the warmest of welcomes and a quick tour of the house we settled into our spacious double room. The en-suite was fitted out with a modern luxurious shower and basin with expensive looking wall tiles. There... More

My son and I stayed here during the February 2015 half-term. The pool was fantastic and my son loved that, helped to keep him entertained. 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...

My fiance and I were lucky enough to be able to book a little getaway in the lakes, and found this b&b. After speaking to Barry on the phone we were offered a small reduction in price for booking direct - great start. 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...
