Recent guest reviews

10 of us stayed here for 2 nights over new year and couldnt fault the place, Jonathan the hotel manager and all the staff were very helpful and attentive, our rooms were amazing with wonderful views over the lake and the new year fireworks were spectacular, the pool and spa area are beautiful and i would definately recommend a dip in the outside hot tub, the food all weekend was great and considering how many of us there was we never waited long to be served, i would definitely re visit and reccommend this hotel to everyone.

Stayed here so many times at least twice every year for the past ten years. The hotel is always a perfect get away for me. We had a large room with patio doors leading towards the lake. This hotel is excellent if you have a dog there’s a lovely area at the back of the hotel for a walk. My favourite is the pool area, I absolutely love the pool and the stand and tan

Myself and my gf (both mid 20s) wanted a night away over the bank holiday weekend and started to browse online. Looked at Wales and the Lakes mainly and settled on the Beech Hill Spa and Hotel as found it reasonable at 97.20 including breakfast and the views from the photos looked incredible In the car and away we go. To be honest when driving down the main road from windermere and looking to the left courtesy of the sat nav for the hotel we didn't think much upon seeing it creep up on us. Parked down on the car park to the rear and felt a little better . Looked up at the bar terrace and perked up a little more. Entering via the main entrance up 3 flights of stairs we again were a little apprehensive. But once you hit the lounge / reception area and see the views out the window all worries flew away if I'm honest. We were given room 93. It was a lovely room I must say. However didn't look like the photos (not necessarily a totally bad thing) it felt more like a really cosy comfortable bed room as opposed to a hotel room. I must say the room could benefit from a mirror above the dressing table, my other half was stressing on how to straighten hair as no plug next to full length mirror to stand in, so I improvis3d and took the full length mirror off the wall and lay it across the dressing table then replaced it. Job done lol Room 93 is up 3 flights of stairs from the reception (kind of the attic if u will) and as no lift due to the shape of the property I wouldn't say it's disabled friendly or pram friendly as only one lot of 10 rooms on the same floor. The room was spotless and clean however with a partial view of the lake and partial view of the road to the front as it overlooks the side of the hotel. We got changed and went down to the spa and I must say, although some reviews say you can't sell a hotel room on views and the quality of food (not that the hotel does try to) I'd pay the same price again for the views alone. Sitting in the Outdoor hot tub whilst overlooking lake windermere was a lovely relaxing experience. Helped immensely by the lovely weather too. We genuinely felt like we was abroad when lay on sun loungers around the hot in looking at the view and occasionally sitting in the hot tub. The swimming pool was a little cold (girlfriend was straight in, took me 5 mins to take the plunge after dipping a foot in lol) but was clean, tidy and we'll maintained. Steam room and sauna also great. It is recommended to book a table for Dinner/ Tea as the hotel is known to provide lovely food all told We heard many people complimenting the quality of food however one look at the prices and we chose to head into Windermere to have a walk and eat tea. The terrace overlooking the back of the hotel offers lovely views to have a drink. However we found the prices to be a little steep even for the type of place. Having stayed in best westerns and hilton I don't expect whetherspoon prices but I'd expect change from a tenner for 2 drinks lol Kopper burg were £5 2 large cokes were £4.50 each A vodka lime and lemonade was £6.20 And bells and coke was 4.80. Not London prices but considering I'm writing this sat in a hotel in Scotland with work were currently paying £2.10 for a bells and coke whilst still having a lovely view I feel it's a little expensive The breakfast offered lots of choice. Especially happy black pudding was on the menu. However the sausages to me seemed very firm. Eggs done perfectly and bacon was nice too. The hotel is made up of 7 floors and have extensive grounds to the back down to the lake. 2 jettys for boat mooring and picnic type benches down at the water edge for enjoying a drink. Will hopefully be returning as have an annual tradition with mum and her partner to go away to a hotel for valentines weekend which we have done for 3 years and after seeing the photos she really has her heart set on Beech Hill next Feb. Well worth the money, but not as a regular thing as a one night stay with 4 drinks in the hotel ended up being a dear affair

We checked out as quick as we checked in....the hotel is an absolute dive. We arrived to this hotel which is In the middle of no where...there’s no where walkable. We had to enter by the back entrance which was down narrow creaky corridors with very worn and dated carpet and decor. Up a small flight of stairs we arrived at reception. The lobby was under work & smelt like an old man pub (stale beer). The carpets were up, surrounded by work men drilling, on ladders, banging. We checked in & went to our room. Room 41, oh my god...a 4*???! Come on!! I barely looked at it but I walked out. The view was the car park. The bed was lumpy, old and uncomfortable. The decor was dated. Skirting boards hanging off. Tiny TV. Bathroom was vile. And it smelt like peas! I have had better in a £30 premier inn. And we were charged £90 for the room. Went back to reception and asked for the manager. To be fair to her, she was very nice, very understanding and did offer to show us another room. But no way was I staying there. The lobby was in pieces. It smelt. And frankly I felt ripped off. We got a full refund and went to the Old macdonald down the road...same price and much nicer, with the option to Nearby pubs. How would I describe this hotel? Faulty towers. No idea what people are on about in other reviews it’s awful & im no snob.

Stayed here with my partner in December. First impressions wasn't what we expected from photos, black dirty chimney and scruffy back entrance from the car park however once we reached the lounge we were greeted by a busy lounge area that was beautifully decorated with Christmas decorations. Arrived at reception however there was no staff and had to wait a little. Eventually they appeared from the room behind reception and checked us in. We were given room 40 which was a shock. Dirty carpets, old fashioned bathroom with black grout, head board not straight and dusty bedsides. Returned to reception, again no staff. After waiting a couple of minutes she returned and we explained how disappointed we were with the room. At this point we were ready to check out. The receptionist said she would get the duty manager and to take a seat. After only a couple of minutes we were greeted by the duty manager Chloe. After explaining our disappointment again, She explained the hotel was fully booked however she would have a look at her Calendar and see what she could do and provided us with tea/coffee whilst we waited. When she returned she offered to take us to look around another room once we had finished our drinks. She showed us room 80 which was beautiful and recently redecorated. She apologised, arranged a young porter to move luggage and informed us that if we needed anything at all to dial from our room and ask for herself. After this the hotel redeemed itself. Amazing views from our new room, lovely spa area, tasty food and service throughout the rest of our stay was faultless. Would we return, honestly if it wasn't for Chloe and her virtuosity and that amazing view no however following our room move and the service throughout we couldn't fault it, so yes, we will be back!

What an amazing place, perfect for a romantic night away. Stunning setting right overlooking the lake. The restaurant was very nice with lake views too. The hot tub outside is well worth a dip. All in All I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a hotel in Windermere.

the location and scenery is great, the pool and hot tub was to a standard as expected for a spa, the food was 6 out of 10 too, which disappointing for the prices they charge. The no internet could have been a massive problem if we had our children with us. we where still disappointed about the internet because it was winter and not much to do there we took the laptop to watch Netflix but couldn't watch it.

Stayed here for one night as part of a new year trip with my parents. Request for room on the ground floor was granted as there are 7 floors and no lift! The view from my parents room was beautiful and ours was ok - with a few obstructions. The rooms were clean but a bit dated and there were a few things that made the rooms look a bit shabby - like frayed curtains etc however they were large and had good in room facilities. Reception were also more than happy to bring an iron to my room upon request which was great. Tea and coffee facilities in the room were perfect and the TV had the basic channels. The bed was essentially two beds pushed together which meant that they were a little uncomfortable and they were not high quality beds as the springs could be felt when laying down - however I did manage to sleep and it wasn't too bad. Very peaceful location. Calling the facilities a spa is probably a bit misleading as it comprises of a small pool area with a very limited number of loungers, one outdoor hot tub and a small sauna and steam room - if you are wanting a spa break specifically I would not recommend the facilities as it was busy and you had to wait to use the facilities and there were nowhere near enough loungers. The hot tub is in a beautiful location - but it is very busy! Towels and robes are also charged for which was a little unexpected. The lounge area was nice and homely and the Christmas decorations were lovely. The restaurant was beautiful and the food was exquisite! Overall we had a relaxing stay here - but not sure that we would stay for more than one night. Cocktails in the bar were awful and I had to send mine back!

Room superb Views brilliant Swimming pool wonderfully Jacuzzi out of this world Service fantastic Food sublime A few days away in this hotel to recharge the batteries after Christmas is just the ticket . The only downside is that it's a good walk into the town of bowness but your in the lake district and that what you are supposed to do the bar and lounge area I really comfortable and welcoming the laid-back atmosphere in the bar area makes you feel at ease all in all a very nice atmosphere We got this hotle on a special offer that was advertised one of the many special offer sites which made it even better

Myself, my wife and my 2 year old stayed at the Beech Hill for a short break over the festive period, we initially requested the Wordsworth Suite which unfortunately had already been booked, however booked the Ruskin Room (29). Room - We were pleased with the room itself. very clean, new bathroom with powerful shower, amazing views however we were let down by the fact the room never really reached a comfortable temperature and was always chilly, it was made worse due to having my two year old with us. I think is mainly due to the room being quite large and having only one radiator. The bed was excellent; it was large, comfortable and had good quality bedding. Food - We only ate here for breakfast and the surroundings were lovely as the large windows allowed for views onto the lake and towards to hills. Food wasn’t always as hot as I’d like however we were late risers, breakfast items were always restocked and were of good quality. My only gripe with the food was the extra supplementary prices for salmon and eggs etc. which I didn’t feel was necessary having already paid for a suite and should have been complimentary. Pool – Modern, clean and well designed with both sauna and steam room however the water was very cold and not suitable for my two year old who was looking forward to the pool more than anything else and we had to get out after 5 minutes as she was shaking. Staff – Cannot be faulted. They were hard working, helpful and attentive throughout. Overview – We paid £563 for two nights between the 27th-29th December and although we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves around the area and in the hotel which had been decorated beautifully we felt the price wasn’t quite right, for over £280 per night we were disappointed with what we got for the price. No special seating in the restaurant although others appeared to have somehow reserved the better tables, no assistance with luggage on arrival and had to carry it down several sets of stairs to our room, surprised that the room we stayed in is advertised as the Ruskin Suite online however there is no mention of it anywhere throughout the hotel and simply referred to as room 29. For us this was a lot of money and was a birthday treat however we didn’t feel as though we received anything special.
