Stayed for 2 nights in July and loved every minute. Lovely bedroom with stunning views of the lake. Ate in hotel both nights and the food was fantastic. Spa area is a brilliant addition to the hotel so we made sure we used it each day. Close to loads of activities and staff were friendly and helpful. Have been to this hotel several times before and will definitely be returning.

Let me start by saying that I cannot fault the staff and management at this hotel they were so helpful and friendly. I booked this trip as a surprise for my wife's 40th she knew nothing about it until we pulled into the car park. I booked this hotel from the pictures on there website that looked amazing to say the photographer earned his money is an understatement as the hotel is absolutely nothing like the pictures. I looked at my wife's face when we pulled up and I was mortified she looked like she was ready to burst into tears. There was scaffolding all over the hotel and workmen everywhere. The hotel looks like it hasn't been touched since the 70's. I thought surely the inside will be better so we went and checked in. We got our key and went to the room which I paid £40 to upgrade soon as we opened the door we could smell the damp. The bed was two singles pushed together and the covers didn't even look clean. The balcony was shared between 3 rooms no privacy at all. Within 15 minutes of being there we decided we couldn't stay it was made even worse knowing I had paid £512 for 2 nights stay. I had paid £60 extra for some flowers and a bottle of wine that weren't even there when we arrived. I informed the duty manager that there was no way we were staying to which she offered a full refund straight away with no hesitation at all including the refund for the £100 spa day I booked for my wife. We found a lovely guest house in Windermere that could not have been more helpful and the weekend turned out better than what we had planned so that was a blessing. I'm not one for making complaints but the beech hill and spa hotel is nothing like the amazing internet pictures it is an absolute dump with the only good things going for it is the views. If I'm honest trading standards need to get involved with this hotel I wouldn't have let my dog stay there. If you are going to book a night there then go and view it first do not go off the Internet pictures.

Have been coming here for 5 years now and the hotel has been on a downward spiral. The rooms are tired and in desperate need of a revamp, the hotel is becoming dated even with the Spa addition. I was really disappointed in the quality of accommodation and service and the food was not worth the effort either. It was a great hotel that just seems to have gone wrong over the last year or two.

I've liked Beech Hill Hotel since my first staying in it four years ago. And I haven't been disappointed this time. Far from hassle, stunning view, quiet, friendly staff, comfortable room, very delicious meal. I would like to say thank you so much for such a magical days! (my booking reference is BB1607281859366)

We booked this hotel through Superbreaks. It is about 4 miles away from Bowness on a windy road, but overlooking Lake Windermere. Our room was lovely, we wished we had stopped a few more days. It was on the lowest floor at the end with a lovely terrace overlooking the lake. Wonderful sunset views on an evening. The room was well equipped with storage facilities for clothes, tea making facilities and had two chairs for looking out from the room, together with table and chairs on the terrace. The bed was very comfortable, one of the best in a hotel that we have slept in. The room would not have been suitable for those who have difficulty walking. There were 65 steps up to the reception and restaurant area, so, by the time we got there we were ready for our breakfast. Breakfast was good, the restaurant staff are very friendly and helpful. We did have a bar meal on our first night and ate in the restaurant on the second night. I can understand the comments that it is looking tired, but they were having repairs at the time we were there. The paintwork was in need of work, but there were wet paint signs around, so I believe this is underway. We did not use the spa facilities, but we could see the swimming pool on the way up to reception, and it looked really clean. I would stay at the hotel again without doubt if we decide to visit the area again, would request the same room too despite the walk up to reception.

Wrote our comments on the guest questionnaire with no reply so far. Visited on the 10th of july for 3 nights. Booked the select double room at a price of around £500. WOW. For the price they are marketing this hotel at, it seriously needs updating asap. The room we had (no 26) was very outdated and dirty, the blinds were filthy, the carpet was bubbling in places and almost a tripping hazard and the air con didnt work. The high chair in the restaurant was that dirty i refused to put my 8month old child in it. Spa facilities were excellent and so was the staff and breakfast to be fair.

We visited for my husbands birthday treat. A few problems but the friendly helpful staff sorted these for us. Beautiful food in the restaurant. Sadly everywhere in the hotel and outside is in need of repair and decoration. Carpets that have stretched and warn, giving a rippled effect in need of replacing. Black mould on the shower head. Simple things to sort. Shame because it could be stunning.

Lovely hotel.. the location overlooking the lake is outstanding.. the room was great and had a fabulous lake view. The breakfast gets very monotonous as its exactly the same everyday.. to eat the same every morning for 4 days was a tad boring on a holiday.. it would be better if the staples too had a variation. The food was very good in terms of quality and service but the menu is a little limited too for a 5 day stay... one looks for variations when dining in house... just more options to choose from would be nicer.. Other than that everything was wonderful.

Just back from the Beech Hill Hotel and Spa. I think our title of this says it all really, the service (and spa) - top notch. Not a lot else to write home about other than an incredible view and decent food. We arrived and we're given keys to a room which wasn't clean, made them aware and we were given complimentary drinks and the room was sorted. Fab but bed was two twins pushed together - when paying what you pay, you do expect a bit more to be honest! BUT when we made them aware of this they upgraded us, which was fab, slept like a baby in a nice big comfy bed. Would recommend paying extra for this room. A lot of the reviews say it's dated and it is, which usually wouldn't bother me but I do feel using the word 'luxury' to describe the hotel is a bit of a push - could do with a bit of a renovation. All being said - service is great, spa is a real treat and those views are unbeatable especially for alfresco dining of an evening!

I can see some very defensive replies from the hotel staff to some of the reviews that have been left in here which is totally understandable but...the reality is when you pay £300 for two nights in the Lakes you do expect a certain standard and this hotel does not all. Saying that, the rooms are huge. We've been given room 38 at first which was really nice with a large bathroom but no views and going out on the car park and a busy road. We've asked for a room with Lakes views and have been upgraded for a reasonable fee. The room did have beautiful views but the state of it was so very poor. Mould in the bathroom, dirty carpets and walls, very uncomfortable and squeaky bed. We did not have a good night sleep. The TV has a really bad signal and the screen is tiny. The best thing about this hotel is definitely the bar and restaurant staff - hard working, amazing guys. The food at the restaurant was also really good even though a bit pricey, still totally worth it. Unfortunately I would not go back to this place again. Yes, the location is amazing but it is not worth the price tag that we've been charged :(
