My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights last week and had a great time. The Sunnyside is on a quiet street but is only a few minutes walk away from the town centre. Our room (Room 5) was really nice: big, clean, welcoming and a pleasure to stay in. The lounge on the first floor is gorgeous too,... More

Sunnyside guest house was a wonderful experience,with great service and home like environment. Mr Shaun(owner) was the most humble and down to earth person I ever met, he wanted his customers to be satisfied with their needs. The guest house it's self was very spacious and very unique. There was one problem though, the curtains were quiet old and must... More

Thank you for your kind review, we were happy to offer you hospitality. There was nothing wrong with the heavy, expensive curtains in the room you had. It was simply a combination of unfamiliarity, maybe and over enthusiastic application of energy which brought them crashing down. You will be pleased to hear that all was returned to a sound condition... More

I stayed here with my brother and father in the triple room on the top floor. Excellent view down the street and out on to the hills. Our room was clean, well equipped and very comfortable. The shower room is compact but more than adequate for our needs – again it is clean and well equipped. Lounge area a lovely... More

Thanks to Sean and Anne for a great 2 night stay.. All of our rooms where of a high standard, very clean, beautiful fluffy white towels in the bathrooms. Having a private car park is a great advantage as those of you who regularly visit Keswick know as parking can be a nightmare! Breakfast was perfect and a great variety... More

Had another wonderful stay and everything was as always outstanding. Really comfortable room, exceptional hosts and the best breakfast available in the Lake District. Thoroughly enjoyable. We'll be back for the 15th year on the trot next year which says it all.

Great location, off street parking, spotlessly clean, good breakfasts cooked to order and very welcoming hosts = lovely place to stay!! Just back from a long weekend here and would highly recommend as it is one of the best B&B's I have had the pleasure of visiting in a very long time.

My parents have stayed here many times, so this was their first choice for Keswick accommodation while on our family trip to the UK. Mum and Dad were welcomed like long-lost family and all of us felt very at home. My brother and I shared a room on the top floor with its own ensuite and everything was just fine.... More

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.

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.

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.
