We stayed here recently and it is a good b&b. We stayed in a superior room and it was sizeable. Great comfy bed. We would stay again. The breakfAst was nice, good service and the swimming pool was amazing. The only downside was that the rooms were cold, there was a strong smell of paint in the room (fair enough... More

We chose Southview as out base for our Lake District holiday and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Our superior room was large and well appointed. Despite being almost fully booked we had absolutely no idea if we had neighbors or not. Kate, Barry and their staff were fabulous and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was magic each morning and our... More

Nice place to stay, friendly, the rooms are very nice and the indoor pool is superb. Warm and has a bar but we didn't use it. Ample restaurants around the hotel for meals and a good brisk walk to the lake.

The rooms were very comfortable, the wifi worked well and the breakfast was great. The owners were very friendly and helpful suggesting lamplighters for dinner which was also very nice. Quiet, very clean, close to town centre, would highly recommend.

Second time staying here and everything was as good as I remembered it was. Comfortable beds, nice rooms, bathroom was absolutely spotless and cleanliness seems to be a very high priority at this establishment. I think the Hotel Inspector (Alex polizzi) would have trouble finding fault with this place. The house is always warm and staff welcoming and helpful. Breakfast... More

we found this guest house on late rooms.com, we have never stayed in the lake district before and wanted somewhere close to the town center to explore, only two minutes from the train station if you don't fancy the drive up but very easy to find if you do drive, off road parking for guests which was ample at the...

Checking in was lovely. Kate was really friendly and even had warm homemade ready for us. Go and put the kettle on and I'll bring some to your room said Kate. What more of a welcome could you ask for! The B&B even house it's own pool another plus. The room was small and spotlessly clean. Breakfast again was fantastic... More

First night was blissfully quiet. Very positive impression of place and owners. Second night and morning was somewhat marred by a larger party of folk comprising youngish children celebrating a birthday. Undermined the peace and quiet somewhat.
