Myself, my wife and my 2 year old stayed at the Beech Hill for a short break over the festive period, we initially requested the Wordsworth Suite which unfortunately had already been booked, however booked the Ruskin Room (29).
Room - We were pleased with the room itself. very clean, new bathroom with powerful shower, amazing views however we were let down by the fact the room never really reached a comfortable temperature and was always chilly, it was made worse due to having my two year old with us.
I think is mainly due to the room being quite large and having only one radiator.
The bed was excellent; it was large, comfortable and had good quality bedding.
Food - We only ate here for breakfast and the surroundings were lovely as the large windows allowed for views onto the lake and towards to hills. Food wasn’t always as hot as I’d like however we were late risers, breakfast items were always restocked and were of good quality. My only gripe with the food was the extra supplementary prices for salmon and eggs etc. which I didn’t feel was necessary having already paid for a suite and should have been complimentary.
Pool – Modern, clean and well designed with both sauna and steam room however the water was very cold and not suitable for my two year old who was looking forward to the pool more than anything else and we had to get out after 5 minutes as she was shaking.
Staff – Cannot be faulted. They were hard working, helpful and attentive throughout.
Overview – We paid £563 for two nights between the 27th-29th December and although we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves around the area and in the hotel which had been decorated beautifully we felt the price wasn’t quite right, for over £280 per night we were disappointed with what we got for the price. No special seating in the restaurant although others appeared to have somehow reserved the better tables, no assistance with luggage on arrival and had to carry it down several sets of stairs to our room, surprised that the room we stayed in is advertised as the Ruskin Suite online however there is no mention of it anywhere throughout the hotel and simply referred to as room 29. For us this was a lot of money and was a birthday treat however we didn’t feel as though we received anything special.
