We were at the top of the house with quite a few stairs, but it was fine, just make sure you mention if you... More

Breakfasts (All English, others are available) were brilliant, the finest ingredients cooked to perfection we really couldn't fault them, Caroline... More

We stayed from Thursday to Sunday and were well looked after. The owners were easy to talk to and only to eager to help. The room was very nice and adequate but we were out and about most of the time. The hotel has a car park which in Windermere is essential. The Breakfast was superb. I certainly would recommend...

We found our room cosy, comfortable, clean and tidy. Last but not least the owners are really kind and helpful! In addition a perfect stay if you are in the footsteps of Romantic poets and if...

I will essentially be repeating other reviews, but if you are thinking of booking don't hesitate we had a very enjoyable stay. Firstly I think this guest house is superb value for money. We paid £90 per night in peak season for... More

Our room was tastefully and comfortably furnished with all the amenities one could wish for. The bed was comfortable and the room and en-suite bathroom were spotless. Breakfast was a most pleasant experience. Fresh... More

Rockside Guest House was my number one place to stay in the Lake District area this summer after I stayed here once before 7 years ago! Just like then, I loved the friendliness of the owners, the excellent location (good for a walk down to the lake, but also great for a drive up to other areas of the Lake... More

We found Rockside after being cancelled by another hotel. Caroline has a warm, friendly approach but remaining very professional. The room was spotless & tastefully decorated. The breakfasts were delicious all homemade with a good variety. We will be returning & have told our boatie friends to look it up.
