Superb quality guest house. Kate and Barry very helpful hosts. Stayed in room 9 (with spa bath) which was beautifully decorated and all very clean. Breakfast was very good quality with the normal cereals etc, yoghurts and fresh fuit salad followed by full english breakfast. Swimming Pool was bigger than expected and very welcome after a days walk on the fells. Would recommend Southview for any length of stay in the Lakes. Thanks for a great week.

Room Tip: Room 9 was a good size, beautifully decorated and very clean.

We stayed for the Easter break and received a warm welcome from Barry and Kate. We even received a nice slice of carrot cake which was most unexpected but welcomed after such a long journey.

The guesthouse has a lovely relaxing atmosphere. We stayed in room 11 which was very clean and modern room and had a spa bath. We loved using the swimming pool too. The breakfasts are made to order and consist of the usual full English as well as fresh fruit, yoghurts and cereals. The owners are very friendly and helpful and assisted us in the best routes for walks and hikes. We would recommend this guesthouse for a break in Windemere for couples.

Room Tip: Room 11 is at the end of the guesthouse, so no one walks past your door late at night.

My parents booked Southview for a 2 night stay as our Christmas present so we didn't really know what to expect. We were greeted by Kate on arrival who was very welcoming & friendly! She even brought us a couple of slices of carrot cake to our room after checking in! There were lots of little touches like that which made us warm to the place. Our room was small but had everything we could have needed! It seemed that a lot of thought & consideration had gone into it. The first thing we noticed was how beautifully clean it was! The bathroom was spotless which is difficult to find in any guesthouse these days!! The finish of everything was immaculate! It was perfectly located in the centre of Windermere so a minutes walk to all amenities! We used the pool one morning which was a real treat to our aching muscles after our long walks! Breakfast was plentiful & again offered everything, but maybe the only fault would be on the quality of the food (fresh bread & some better quality sausages would have finished it off beautifully, but maybe that's just me). Although the poached eggs were beautifully cooked!! My husband pre-ordered smoked haddock & eggs one morning which he really enjoyed! I would definitely recommend this hotel & we would definitely stay here again!! Thank you Southview for adding to our perfect weekend in the Lakes!!
