Reviewed 16 April 2012

I booked this resort after an Internet search for a getaway weekend in NH for our 25th anniversary and was very pleased and nicely surprised that the room chosen was exactly like the picture on the website. It's always a welcome surprise to find a new gateway destination that lives up to your own expectations. We've already told our neighbors with kids and relatives and do plan to return in the Summer.

The one suggestion I would make to this and all Hotels is to supply a code of conduct overview to each quests checking in as well as post intermittent " No Running" signs in the hallways. The code of conduct overview should remind guest to respect the other guest within the hotel by not running in the hallways and within their rooms and to keep the noise level down. Hotel walls are notoriously thin and it's always been a frustration to hear kids running overhead or down hallways, By providing a code of conduct reminder perhaps parents who normally would not allow this behavior in their own home will also keep it in check while at the hotel.

Room Tip: If traveling with kids the newer West Building has an amazing pool that you and they will enjoy. We...

Hopefully the views from your deck offered a nice backdrop to your 25th anniversary. I am glad to hear that you had a great time with us and would recommend Steele Hill to friends and family. We strive to provide a relaxing safe haven for people visiting the Lakes Region.

In terms of the rules of conduct, that is a good suggestion. Over the years we have tried many different methods of notifying guests about our policies. Signage is obviously a good start and our security team does address matters during their rounds of the property. We are currently working on a resort information channel that might be the perfect medium for things of this nature. I will keep your recommendations in mind.

Thanks again for choosing Steele Hill, we hope to see you again soon.

Sincerely,
Rob Robillard, General Manager

Our stay was very relaxing, with beautiful views of two lakes surrounded by NH mountains. We took a lot of day trips, as April is the off season for surrounding area things to do (ice out - winter activities over, no warm month activities yet). It's all good, as I imagine Winter and Summer would be a lot more crowded. Seems like clientele was mostly families with young kids. Would recommend for families, not sure about romantic getaway, as it might be a little on the noisey side. We stayed in the East building, no problems except the walls are a little on the thin side...you can hear All your neighbors. All in all, would recommend.

Room Tip: West and East buildings both have indoor and outdoor pools. West pool is the one pictured in the bro...

I am glad you had a chance to enjoy the scenery during your stay. The Lakes Region is a bit more quite during those months, but is can be a great time to get familiar with the area without the larger crowds. I am also happy to hear that you had no issues with your Steele Hill East accommodations. We have made significant renovations to those units over the recent years and many people have a misconception that they are of a lower standard.

I understand you had a minor issue with noise. We are making efforts to reinforce placement policies at reservations to help mitigate this issue. The resort is also looking into sound-proofing measures with improved carpet padding during the next round of replacement.

Thank you for choosing Steele Hill Resorts to spend your vacation. We appreciate your business and hope to see you up on the Hill again soon.

Sincerely,
Rob Robillard, General Manager

Had not heard of this place before but were familiar with the area (Tilton outlets) so purchased a Groupon to check it out for a one-night getaway. It was only a 90 minute drive for us and agree the access roads can be a bit rough getting up there. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and told they had upgraded us to a West Wing 2-bedroom townhouse. That sounded lovely but since there were only two of us, we really did not see the point but thanked them anyways. We only used the upstairs portion of the unit and that area was spacious. Fairly typical furnishings – nothing fancy but adequate. Fireplace was great. The view was awesome – overlooking the lake with the mountains in the background. The balcony was an added plus even if a little chilly still. We found our way to the pool, which we totally enjoyed – esp. the water slide. Lots of families with children there but did not feel over crowded. The sauna and Jacuzzi were also very relaxing. Checked out the exercise room, which appeared well equipped but did not have time to workout since staying only one night. For dinner, we drove to the restaurant down the hill, as it was a bit too far to walk esp. in cold weather. The view, service and food were all excellent!
Glad we were in the West wing since close to the main pool area and with a wonderful view. Top floor was also a plus not having to hear kids running up and down the corridors or being overhead. Not certain what the other areas were like but enjoyed where we were located. They definitely are in need of upgraded security systems for the doors - Key access is not safe. The outside doors did not close well unless pulled shut. Lots of stairs could be a concern for some but we were ok with them. We were only there the one night and did not check out everything but would definitely like to visit again – maybe in the fall.

Room Tip: West Wing seems to be the place to stay. Higher floors esp for Adults without children would be qui...

Hearing from a new customer that had a positive experience with us is always a great feeling. Having the Tanger Outlets nearby is a great asset to the Resort and the Lakes Region. I am glad you enjoyed Steele Hill West. These rooms do have some killer views. I am happy to hear you had a chance to kick back and relax in the big pool area. I will pass on the positive review of your dining experience to our food and beverage manager.

Once again, it is a pleasure to hear you enjoyed your time at Steele Hill and that you plan on returning in the future. We hope to see you up on the Hill Again soon.

Sincerely,
Rob Robillard, General Manager

We found the West side to be the place to stay. The indoor pool is great with the water slide, very tropical layout. The food was great as well as the sauna and work out area. Well worth the money.

Room Tip: By all means stay on the West side, great views.

The west pool area is the closest you’ll get to the tropics in New Hampshire. I think the plants we have around the pool help set the mood. I am glad you had a great stay with us. Sounds like you enjoyed many of our indoor amenities during your time with us. We are actually completely renovating the workout facilities in May. This means new flooring, all new equipment and TVs for each cardio station. It is going to be a great new addition to the resort. Hopefully you can get a chance to come back up and enjoy it in the coming months. We look forward to seeing you on the hill again soon.

I booked a two day stay at this hotel for a getaway for with my husband and toddler. When I booked my trip I asked where the best room would be with a toddler, the girl told me West wing by the pool. She must not have a toddler because you have to walk up a staircase outside and then down a long hallway where my room had another spiral staircase to brt to the pool. Also, when we checked in I was given instructions to go in an entrance that was "easy" we entered the "not easy way" by he pool. We were met with Mayan temple like stairs we had to go up and Down with a carriage bags and baby. After climbing the stairs I asked the lady near the pool if we came in the right way, and she seemed oblivious to where are rooms were because she said yes. Once we were in our room after a hellish entrance to this place I called the front desk, there are no baby gates nd my son fell in he first 5 minutes of our stay. We went to the pool where we were told there would be a bar because we were so rattled we needed a drink. Yeah that was closed for the entire two day stay. The food is good I'll give them that and the pool truly is nice but the rooms are outdated, walls are thin, hotel staff was not helpful and we were more stressed out after being there for two days. I will think again before using a groupon getaway.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask about stairs and explain your needs.

I am sorry to hear you did not thoroughly enjoy your stay. Our organization prides itself on resolving guest issues. Had we known you were unhappy, I can assure you we would have gone out of our way to make things right.

Based on your feedback, it sounds like the issues began with the reservation. I will talk with our front desk staff about your experience. The west building does have several doors along the main hallway that offer more convenient parking and more direct access to the rooms. Had our staff been more communicative, this would have prevented you from having to enter through the amenities building. During your stay our west bar area was closed, but our main bar and tavern in the restaurant area was open. I will look into better signage to put out at the west bar area to communicate this with guests.

Your comment regarding the gate is also insightful. I will talk with our housekeeping staff today about coming up with a solution to offer guests for this issue.

I would love the opportunity to change you perception of the property. Please feel free to contact me at robertrobillard@steelehillresorts.com or by phone at 603.524.2216 and I would be more than happy to discuss your stay and see if we can change your outlook on the property.
