Secluded. very private. Locals don't even know there is a hotel here. The attention is superb. Many smiles and little details. Quiet. Beautiful Flagstone building. Room is in very good condition due to high quality furnishings. Nice Gym, and swimming pool. Gives a snobbish impression. Dress codes for everything, from gym, pool, golf to restaurants. Cons: no coffee maker, no... More

Stayed here for a couple of days after a conference - wish I had stayed here for the whole time. Genuinely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. No they don't have all the mod cons of tea/coffee makers, and mini bar fridges but they have a great bar with exceptional staff, they have piping... More

Spent several days as a family here last week. It's amazing that if the traffic is right, you can be in the heart of I-Drive in just 15 minutes. This was a nice, tranquil oasis just outside the "noise". Because of the golf renovations, the room rate was very good compared to other mid priced hotels. The property is definitely... More

This is a small motel like place with nice rooms and nice view if facing the golf course. What makes this hotel stand out is its great staff, mature travellers, calmness and quietness of the hotel. It is located near downtown with all kinds of great resturants within 5 min drive. It has a really nice swimming pool and also... More

I stayed here for a convention at Orange County Convention Center. I got a good rate as it is off season and the golf course is closed for renovations. It was a good location far enough removed from the commercial craziness in the convention center area. The property has an old school, somewhat dated feel about it. Staff all seemed... More

We stayed in the main hotel, the staff are lovely, but food is pricey there & not a lot of variety. We had double rooms, beds were a bit on the small side, more small doubles than standard size, other than that, lovely views and very spacious. Hotel needs an update on the décor, very dated. This is an expensive... More

Having spent a good number of holidays in Orlando staying in hotels and villas I was pleasantly surprised at how nice and close to everything Bay Hill was. Swimming pool was great and so was the café beside the pool. lovely food and quite reasonable. The main restaurant overlooks the 18th hole and is a lovely place to eat at... More

Spent 6 days here and recommend it to anyone who wants peace and quiet but still within easy distance to Shopping and all the parks. having been to Orlando many times and always stayed in big named hotels or Villas I was pleasantly surprised by what i thought would have been too pricey. The room was perhaps a bit dated... More

There was not a refrigerator or microwave in the room. I think this is so you have to go to the Lodge's over priced restuarants. The gym also needs updating badly. The equipment is old, and the heavy balls are not even heavy. The spa is nice until you realize all the steam rooms and saunas are turned off until... More

Found this little gem on Tripadvisor.com. Such a beautiful little resort with a lovely pool, exercise room and spa. And of course if you are a golfer Bay Hill is a no brainier! Nice dining room as my daughter and I had a quick bite to eat here as well. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Will definitely be... More
