We booked this accommodation after reading the reviews on here and can say we weren't disappointed. It is a lovely place with crazy staircases, welcoming hosts, tasty breakfast and delicious cakes and biscuits available daily in the foyer. It is a nice location to explore the lakes by car or foot and would highly recommend.

Great location, very comfortable large rooms which are tastefully decorated. Incredible breakfast and the daily home baked treats just added that something extra. Caroline and Martin are always very friendly and go the extra mile to make your stay memorable. Can't recommend this B&B highly enough. This is my second stay and I'll be back again.

The perfect place to chill out. The hostess is incredible sweet. Leaves treats out upon your arrival. B&B is immaculate. It is very quiet and breakfast is divinely made with fresh produce from the area every morning. Rooms and property are immaculate and complete with on-suite. Owners clean everyday even if told not to, your room is always made up... More

Spent 2 nights hear, owners looked after us very well. If we return we will book another room as we had a lot of noise from the road. Breakfast very good with plenty of choice and fresh produce. I would return if in the area again.

We had a wonderful visit to rockside the owners were so friendly and helpful and the homemade treats in reception were a delicious touch. In a great location near train station and a short walk to town and lake, also nice viewpoint walks. There are plenty of nice places to eat there too. I would definitely recommend buying some of...

It's really easy to find this place, it's just off the main road. Road noise wasn't really a problem even though it is quite busy and the windows are original sash windows We stayed 2 nights only - no 3 night minimum stay... It's right at the top end of the village, but just 2 minutes from the pubs and... More

I agree with all the other great reviews of this hotel. I have stayed previously for one night and it was fantastic! Great location, beautiful room, welcoming staff and the breakfast is incredible (we left with plenty of marmalade and regret not putting an order in for the banana bread!) My only complaint is the 3 night minimum stay that... More

I stayed here between September 8 and September 12. The best way I can describe it is utterly amazing. Caroline was a fabulous host. She'll make you feel like an old family friend as soon as you walk in the door. Homemade banana bread and award-winning marmalade were super tasty. I bought a jar of marmalade to take home. I...

We spent two nights here in room 5 with a king sized bed. The room was good with plenty of storage space. The only slight faults are that it good do with a chair and the TV was a bit small. The breakfast was better than some good hotels I have stayed in with plenty of choice, it is not... More

Just spent 2 nights at the Rockside. Stayed in room 1 which was very nice, plenty of room, good size bath room and a dressing area, it is on the top floor which wasn't a problem. Breakfast was good, plenty to choose from. The distance from the guest house to the lake is about a mile and a half, we... More
