The hotel is situated on the main road between Windermere and Bowness and can be easily missed, despite a sizeable frontage. However its considerable assets are soon discovered once inside.

Brilliant Beech Hill Hotel

Stay Date: 18/10/15, a customer aged 65+ who stayed at 4* Beech Hill Hotel & Spa in Windermere wrote this review.

An excellent hotel - about 3 miles out of Windermere on the Newby Bridge road. Car needed as the bus service to Windermere is very infrequent. Good car park at the hotel. Swimming pool is very See More  Read more information good. Very good breakfast - restaurant overlooks the lake with great views. Very helpful and friendly staff - any problems are sorted very quickly. Many interesting places around the area and many goodwalks. Kendal is the nearest big town but it's full of one-way streets and difficult to park. Hayes garden centre at Ambleside is worth a visit, though credit cards should be kept firmly lockedaway! Have been to Beech Hill Hotel quite a few times and will always try to stay there on visit to the Lake District.   Collapse  Hide

Ideal location in Windermere

Stay Date: 07/11/15, a customer aged 25-44 from Aviemore who stayed at 3* Windermere Hydro in Windermere wrote this review.

My family was looking for a cheaper hotel to sleep in Windermere. The Hydro is in a central location in Bowness (but up a bit of a steep hill for any with walking difficulties). Hotel from the See More  Read more information outside needs repainting and repair work. Inside is a little dated and in need of refurbishment. However, it was all clean and warm with friendly staff. The family room was brilliant - a massive roomwith single beds put together into a super king bed, a separate TV area and another little area with bunk beds for the children. Breakfast was buffet and enough on offer. Room it was served in was abit conference like and no windows to enjoy views but it was more than adequate. The lift was out of order when we arrived and no hotel information in our room.   Collapse  Hide

We have stayed here many times and the standard of this hotel is very good. The hotel is for those who seek a quiet stay and not a place for young families, although they are welcomed. The beauty of See More  Read more information this place is the tranquillity of the surroundings set above Lake Windermere, the peacefulness of the main public areas of the hotel and the warm heated rooms everywhere that make it so welcoming.The food is excellent and the staff are attentive and helpful.
