Nice peaceful break, lovely grounds to walk around Excellent hospitality from the hotel staff.Good food a tad expensive.We went when it rained for two days would appreciate the hotel more if we got the weather. Only negative point, the actual bathroom is to small and no where to put toleteries. We stayed in the superior room with a lovely bath tub in the bed room which made up for the bathroom. Me and my wife enjoyed are stay.
We stay at the Beech Hill as often as we can when visiting Derry. It's a great location, generous rooms and staff are so attentive. Plus breakfast is the best around. This was the first time we also brought our dog and were given a 'dog-friendly' room (near an exit). It was a bit smaller than some of the other rooms but still comfortable and the large grounds and developed nature trails to the back of the hotel provided great walks each day. Lovely stay.
Great hotel, lovely staff, excellent food and acres of woodland grounds to walk in. But the highlight of the place for me was the walled garden, make a point of going up to see the garden and get a few gardening tips from Robert. Carnman
Certainly not 4 star very cold hotel, bedrooms, bar & restaurant all freezing. We stayed for one night and had one evening meal in the hotel, waiter who took our order didn't tell us anything about menu until asked and then had to speak to the chef. We both had boulibase which was served with champ (very strange) meal was all just OK and probably not worth the money. We decided to finish off our evening with a drink in the bar but unfortunately waited at an empty bar for 10 minutes but no barman was present so decided to have an early night. I'm afraid this was our first & probably our last visit to Beechill House Hotel.
We had no idea the history this hotel had being a camp for the US Marines during the war. We enjoyed reading all the info in the museum. Easy to find and parking is right out front. The front desk clerk was very friendly and showed us all the way to our room and made sure the heat was going since it had been cold out. Our room was very large, had a sofa and a very large bed. The one thing that was missing was a safe in the room, and I was surprised that in the hallway a door that led outside was left unlocked. We decided to have dinner in the restaurant as it promised to be quite excellent. We enjoyed a cocktail in the lounge and placed our dinner order with the bartender who seated us once our table was ready. I appreciated the fact that they accommodated my request for a caesar salad even though it was not on the menu that night. We had the steak and the Pot Pie, dinner was OK but not as good as we expected. There was a large group of about 20 people, and 5 tables with only 2 servers on. After being served our meals no one even bothered with us. After getting tired of looking at our empty plates we returned to lounge and signed our bill with the bartender. I really expected better service. We had a great nights sleep and the breakfast the next morning was excellent. Only one waitress working and with about 8 tables it seemed to take a very long time for our Eggs Benedict. I guess my advice to them would be to have some more wait staff working.
Stayed for a night with my wife and son. All the staff at the beech hill are second to none! In particular Patsy and Roisin who greeted us when we arrived made us feel very welcome. Our room was beautiful, clean and so comfortable that we could have stayed for a month!! We had a delicious meal in the restaurant, they clearly have a top class team of chefs at work, the breakfast spread was amazing also! We really enjoyed exploring the hotel grounds before dinner, a refreshing walk in the woods was a great way to work up an appetite. I would highly recommend the Beech Hill to anyone, it had a very friendly, relaxing and warm feel to it, we’ll definitely be back! It was just perfect.
Stayed here over bank holiday weekend for 3 nights. Beautiful walks amongst over 300 year old trees. Very comfortable hotel. Excellent food served in dining room. Stayed in the old part of the house. Cold on first night but i told reception and was cosy for rest of the visit. Staff are very friendly and the owner is never too far away. Great break for us.
Omg !! Heaven in Londonderry. Loved this place the second I drove into the lane. Gardens are private where you can walk and enjoy the sound of nature. Sit by the pond it chill in the garden . The architect is my favourite, you just relax in the grand room next to the fire ,where you are served by a gentleman at the bar with your fav drink. Soft furnishings , large armchairs and comfy sofa. Soft music plays in the back round. My dream is to stay some night, but it's always booked up when I'm off work !!! Go visit relax and enjoy.
we got a room upgrade and that provided us with a gorgeous room overlooing the gardens - biggest bed ever, and so comfortable! Restaurant was levely, and we only discovered the next day that robert in the garden grew and nurtured all the vegetables for the hotel. Fabulous break, which felt really chileld and yet indulgent
We stayed here from Friday 27-Monday 30 October in one of the superior rooms and had a wonderful time. My review will be 100% open and honest but please note, that while there were a few things amiss, I would return and recommend this hotel. We arrived quite late on Friday evening to a very friendly receptionist. She noticed that we were allocated the wrong room and went about correcting this very efficiently. The check in was very quick and we were directed to our rooms. As there was no lift, the receptionist offered to assist with our bags, but we declined as there were not too heavy. We realsied we had forgotten toothpaste and the receptionist scoured the hotel to get this for us - once again displaying excellent customer service. The room itself was in the old part of the house, full of charm and beautiful books. The bed was comfortable, and the room airy. The bathroom was quite basic and I'm not sure i got fully hot water any time, but it was never freezing. There was no extractor fan, therefore the 2nd person to use the bathroom has a very steamy room ! Small gripe was the quality of the toilet paper, felt like the cheapest brand and not in keeping with the luxury hotel feel. We were already booked in for dinner (a nice touch ) and were plesently surprised at the cost and the quality of the food on the Friday night. My partner was raving still the following day about the sea salt celeriac ! The hotel is surrounded by beautiful well kept and tended gardens, with beautiful walks. This was beautiful on a crisp Octover morning full of leaves. Breakfast on Saturday was excuisite, with excellent choice and the quality of the food obvious in the taste. We ate well and left very happy. We were out and about alll day and returned late on Saturday night. There was a wedding in full swing and no parking spots available. However, a quick chat with the gentleman on the door and he moved another car to accommodate us. Dinner on Saturday night was quite disappointing. My partner returned his starter (which the hotel without prompting removed from his bill), with both main courses over cooked. As mentioned previously there was a large wedding in the hotel and it seemed to put pressure on the kitchen. This was repeated the following morning , when the wait for breakfast was almost an hour. The other residents seated beside us were equally disappointed at this wait. Dinner on Sunday was very nice, as the kitchen was not under such pressure. There is a lovely bar in the hotel, perfect for a pre dinner drink. Check out was very efficient. While driving home we realised we had left some personal items in the room. I sent an email straight away and 4 days later, the items were received. Overall, it is a beautiful hotel. It is located on the main road and very close to the city. The staff are very friendly and helpful. My only gripe is that the kitchen do not seem able to cope when there is a wedding as well as a full hotel, and it appears the guests in the hotel suffer for this. As i said at the start, i would hightly recommend and would return to this hotel. I would like to thank Riosin again for sending the personal items.
