Rooms at the Sunnyside Guest House


Sunnyside Bed and Breakfast – About

The Sunnyside Bed Breakfast is located on Bath Street, just a two minute walk to Lord Street Shopping Boulevard and Southport’s famous promenade, providing an ideal location for tourists visiting Southport. The Guest House is also ideally located for access to Southport Conference Centre and Southport Pier which are literally a two minute walk away.

If you have stayed over in Southport before you will be aware that finding accommodation with off street car parking can be quite a challenge, especially in the town centre. A lot of the big hotels have very limited parking and if you arrive early and are lucky enough to get a space there are usually charges attached.

When you book direct with the Sunnyside, either through this website or by calling reception on 01704 536521, we can provide you with free car parking. If you have a van or a large vehicle you would need to contact us before booking to see if we can make arrangements for you. Free parking is only available for guests who book direct with the bed and breakfast. If you book through a third party website and want to use the on site car park a daily car parking fee will apply.

Book direct with the accommodation provider for the best deal

When you book through third party websites such as,, Trivago, Expedia and Airbnb they take a commission for the booking which is passed onto the customer through higher room rates.

When you book direct with us it removes commissions paid to booking websites and allows us provide you with our best deal. Booking direct means you get free car parking and WIFI which are charged as extras on booking websites.

We are also able to provide our best rates for rooms, breakfast and we are able to offer you are full allocation of available rooms. Some accommodation providers don’t list all of their rooms on the third party site in order to keep commission costs down and to reduce the chance of overbooking.

Taking the middle man out of the equation also reduces the chances of there being any complications with the booking further down the line and prevents guests special requests getting lost along the way.

When you next book a stay away always check the hotels, bed and breakfast or guests house website first or call them. When you book though this website you are safe in the knowledge you are getting the best deal available.

If you are in doubt don’t hesitate to make a reservation over the phone. Call 01704 536521 to make a reservation today.
