Beech Hill Hotel - Lake District

Stay Date: 03/04/15, a customer aged 25-44 who stayed at 4* Beech Hill Hotel & Spa in Windermere wrote this review.

Upon arrival there was a little uncertainity about letting us check in 5 minutes early. Even though we were carrying a naked 1 year old due to him being sick before arrival. The room was spacious See More  Read more information but the decor was not fresh. The food we had ordered in the evening to the room was ok but nothing special bearing in mind it is a good 4 hour journey into civilisation. On departure we were overcharged by at least £6 for our food and then a whopping £5 for a bottle of water which was meant to have been free. We had asked for fresh milk which was meant to have been complimentary anyway so whetherthe charges reflected this only god knows. We will never use this hotel again or recommend it to any family or friends.   Collapse  Hide

Staying at the Beech Hill Hotel

Stay Date: 25/09/15, a customer aged 25-44 who stayed at 4* Beech Hill Hotel & Spa in Windermere wrote this review.

The staff were all really nice and helpful. The hotel is tired to be honest, broken tiles in the bathroom and no attention to detail in the room, worn out carpets and dated. The views are beautiful See More  Read more information from the bar and eating area. There was a mix up with our meals in the evening - it was sorted in the end. I would stay again if there were no vacancies elsewhere.   Collapse  Hide

Poor Hotel - Disappointed

Stay Date: 28/09/15, a customer aged 45-64 who stayed at 3* Windermere Hydro in Windermere wrote this review.

Bowness was fantastic, with loads of lovely pubs and restaurants. View from hotel was great and staff were brilliant, very helpful. Coach load of tourists on the first night so had to queue for See More  Read more information breakfast the next morning and had to wait 20 minutes for teas and coffees as staff were so busy. Had a basic buffet breakfast but we were also offered hash browns and mushrooms but never offered againfor the next 2 mornings. Jacuzzi not working properly in leisure centre. Bath panel at front of bath was hanging off. Mattress was really hard on the bed and the whole of the hotel was shabby. Thecarpet was dirty on entrance to our room. We were really disappointed in the hotel as it looked so much nicer on the website. Would not recommend, even though staff tried their hardest.   Collapse  Hide

Hydro Bowness. Hmm

Stay Date: 23/04/16, a customer aged 25-44 from United Kingdom who stayed at 3* Windermere Hydro in Windermere wrote this review.

Booked the hotel after looking at the lovely room pictures online, gets to hotel, outside looks very tired. Definitely in need of some work, inside the hotel again is in need of some refurbishment, See More  Read more information some of the hallways smell very damp and mouldy, some of the safety glass in the internal doors is shattered and this it with the £140+ a night. Not a chance. The room was something out of the 70s andbore no resemblance to the lovely pics on the website. Would I stay there again? No way! Spend another £50-£60 and stay at the MacDonald hotel.   Collapse  Hide
