A very nice comfortable family hotel in it's own setting and gardens with freindly staff although for a 3 star service could be See More  Read more information a bit more polished in dinning room. Breakfast on first morning was awful but wonderful on second morning (2 chefs?). I would go back but think a bit pricey for quality of 3 star.

Very Relaxing Break Close To Home

Stay Date: 26/03/10, a customer who stayed at 4* Beech Hill Hotel & Spa Non Refundable (2 Night Offer & 1st Night Dinner) in Windermere wrote this review.

We arrived to a warm welcome but with no car parking spaces available at the front of the hotel, unfortunately the rear car park entails 43 steps up to reception and no lift. Keeps you fit anyway. See More  Read more information We were in room 73 above reception and to the right. Room a decent size but bed far to small for us 12stn and 10stn respectively and both under 6'. Restaurant good for this class of hotel but we foundan italian restaurant called roberto's in Queens Sq Bowness on Windemere which was excellent in every respect. Have been many times to the lakes so didn't bother to much with the touristy bit. Went tosee friends in Barrow and had a day with them. All in all an acceptable hotel and a good part of the world to visit but you will need a car.   Collapse  Hide
