What makes this place stand out from the rest is the charming people. From the friendly greeting on arrival to the cake recipe on departure, everything about this hotel was about being made to feel welcome. The room was excellent and spotless. The pool was warm and clean. The breakfast was plentiful and delivered with characteristic cheerfulness. We couldn't fault... More

My husband and I stayed for three nights in a superior room with spa bath. It was sheer bliss to soak in the whirlpool bath after an adventure-packed day. The hotel is within walking distance to Bowness, restaurants, shops and lovely walks. I'm a fussy sleeper and was ecstatic to find the room so clean, peaceful and relaxing for sleeping... More

My husband and I have just returned from our 2 night stay at the Southview. We were made to feel very welcome on arrival (the slice of cake ticked my box ). Our room was a good size and very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was lovely. A very good selection and quality produce used. We would most definitely recommend... More

We stayed in a superior room with spa bath for the bank holiday weekend. We've stayed here a few times over the last few years, on this occasion just as a couple. We didn't use the swimming pool this time but it is lovely, we did have some sandwiches on the terrace outside. The guesthouse offers a bar service with... More

We stayed at the Southview for 2 nights and had a fabulous break. The staff were more than accommodating and the arrival with cake and refreshments an added bonus. Breakfast was excellent being of very high quality. A very homely feel to the hotel and the swimming pool a real bonus. Very well placed to explore The Lakes and advice... More

Enjoyed a single night stay here. Very friendly staff, clean accommodation and a lovely breakfast service. Tried the pool too, as the weather was the usual for the lake district. Ideally situated for windermere village and only a 20-30 minute walk to bowness.
