We have recently stayed at the Southview Guest House and we were blown away with this lovely place. The owners were absolutely lovely, friendly and very helpful. Our room was extremely nice decor, spotlessly clean and the most comfortable bed I've every slept in. The quilt and pillows were superior quality. Breakfast in bed due to the Covid restrictions was welcomed. You normally have to pay extra for this in hotels. The breakfast its self was lovely. The location of this hotel is also great as it is right in the town of windermere and about a 1 and half from Lake Windermere. Again due to covid restrictions when we went for a swim the whole pool was ours for 45 minutes. Another Covid benefit. I would definitely recommend the Southview Guest house, its more of an hotel than a guest house. Thank you to Kate and her husband for making our stay so nice.
I highly recommend this hotel. The indoors pool was great. Breakfast was standard but delicious. The amenities in the bathroom was great.
Perfect location, and the staff (owners I think) were really helpful, welcoming and friendly.
The location is 5min it less from Windermere station. With pubs and restaurants just around the corner of the hotel.
Easy access to attractions if you want to book a day bus trip or for a walk, just before you arrive at the hotel, there is also mountain goat were you can by souvenir and book for a day trip around the 10 lakes.
I highly recommend this hotel.
Stayed here for two nights with a friend. Lovely place, and very well situated in Windermere. The room was incredibly clean, and we enjoyed a lovely hour in the pool which you book out for your room only. The owners have done a great job adjusting to Covid, and the breakfasts in the room were fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed - thank you very much!
A few mins walk from Windermere station & centre, with on site parking just be warned there is potential to get blocked in & due to Covid the owners cannot move your car.
Minimal contact due to Covid, most done by email, phone etc. Still what contact we did have was friendly and approachable with some carrot cake delivered to our room.
The room was lovely and the multi jet shower was absolutely fabulous, I’ve never been so clean! A real plus for a B and B is having its own swimming pool, again due to Covid you have to prebook a slot but that was no issue at all.
Breakfast again due to Covid was served in the room & was preordered continental style, personally it would have been nice to have bacon or sausage added to the options instead of just eggs but the choice was plentiful and delicious. There is a lounge bar with honesty box, good selection but we didn’t use it, nice outdoor area to sit and relax.
Most importantly we felt very safe, they have taken Covid security very seriously & after the year we have had it was nice to get away to a beautiful part of the world for a few days. Can’t wait to return, well done.
Needing a break we had a one-night stay here.
Lovely place; extremely clean and tidy. Our room (5) was beautifully kept. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. The carrot cake on arrival was a nice touch (though I prefer cold carrot cake!).
The guesthouse is managing the Covid situation well. It was great that we could book the swimming pool for our own use. Only 40-minute slots, but that’s perfectly fine for a quick exercise. The pool area is also very well kept, clean and tidy. Water temperature is very pleasant.
Would we stay here again? Definitely.
