We stayed at the Sunneyside for a midweek break in July. I found the accommodation first class, the rooms were very clean and well maintained, not the biggest but very well appointed. The breakfast was second to none, great selection of local produce, well presented. The location is good with its own car park,and only a short walk to the... More

Thank you for leaving such a generous review, Anne and I enjoyed being able to welcome you to Sunnyside and look forward to perhaps seeing you in the future - maybe somewhere even more exotic than Keswick! More

One of the main attractions for me was the off street parking, as described accurately on the website. I have a mortorcycle which I did not want to park on the street, all well and good until I decided on an early start one morning (around 5:45) to get to see some sights before the crowds arrived. When I got... More

I brought this matter to Mr M*******s attention face to face and one to one. I pointed out that at that time in the morning sound carries a long way in a quiet town like Keswick. This reaction to what I said and how I said it is completely surprising to me and something of an overreaction. He showed no... More

Comfortable well equppied twin room for two. Off road parking a bonus for keeping cars and bikes safe. A stone's throw from town centre. Breakfast was good and healthy although kids might prefer a wider range of cereals. Very enjoyable stay!

We stayed over the Easter weekend and found the accommodation to perfectly suit our needs! The location really is fantastic and well placed for walking in the fells and around Derwentwater! Good parking which is rare. Very clean accommodation with a lovely lounge area for rainy days. We really liked that you could donate money to various causes around the... More

Thanks for the fulsome feedback - and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We encourage our guests to talk to each other and when we had music it wasn't always to everyone's taste but I do acknowledge we Brits can be a stuffy lot sometimes! Do come back again when you're next in the Lakes. More

Great location with private parking is a real bonus so close to town centre. Friendly hosts, clean and warm bedroom with a hearty breakfast to set you up for the day. We have no doubt that when we return to Keswick this will be top of our list for re-booking. We just wish that Sean could have a greater influence... More

I stayed here over Easter whilst visiting the Lake District. The location is great & only 2 minutes walk into the town centre. The single room which I stayed in was a decent size, spotlessly clean, quiet and very comfortable. The owners are very friendly and helpful if you have any queries. It was a really affordable single room too,... More

Sunnyside was just what we wanted for a family weekend away. It was clean and well appointed; there was a great breakfast and it was only a 'stone's-throw' from the centre of Keswick. In addition there was the added facility of a very cosy sitting room - a great place to play games with the family when the weather was... More
