“A Can't Miss Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Went to new Hampshire and Maine for the fall colors. We stayed at six different hotels during the trip including Best Western, Choice Hotels and Hampton Inns. the Fireside Inn was by far the best experience we had. The view of the fall colors from our room was outstanding. Rooms were nice size and quiet, breakfasts were filling and the staff was friendly and informative. They have an indoor pool for cold weather and an outdoor pool for summer weather.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wanted an enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: For fall colors, chose a room on the second floor facing the road

We stayed at this hotel for two nights while visiting Lake Winnepesaukee to see the "Fall" colours. The situation is perfect, rooms spacious & comfortable & the hotel is generally very peaceful, in spite of being near a busy road.
Continental breakfast is very good, although they could do with it being in a bigger room, as it does get a bit crowded at peak breakfast time. However, everything there which you could want. No other food at the hotel, but there is a good restaurant across the road.
There is a lovely little pool which seems to be under used, as most people are just passing through.
I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are very good

We were attending a wedding and the staff made sure we could check in early. The front desk attendant was very pleasant and the check-in process was very quick. We had plenty of time to get ready for the wedding. The bathrooms and rooms were very clean and nicely appointed. The manager, Frank was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. The beds were terrific...I must say! I slept great and was refreshed for the ride home the next morning. We had a delicious waffle, juice, and coffee in the dining room. The continental breakfast attendant was very helpful and cooked our waffles for us...which we appreciated! A good stay, Thank You.

I have found Fireside Inn & Suites at Lake Winnipesaukee as a sparkling clean hotel with attentive personnel in a beautiful location.

I have experienced a personal touch in each interaction with the hotel staff, starting from the reception, then cleaning & housekeeping, as well as at the breakfast room. Our room was well aerated and comfortable. We slept peacefully in the soft and comfortable beds with good quality sheets. Very good hotel, I will definitely return to Fireside Inn & Suites.

This was such a nice place to stay! We had quite a long trip as we were traveling to attend a wedding. Everyone was very friendly and our room was great. We even had a little balcony with chairs to enjoy the fall foliage. We will definitely stay here again when we visit the area. Thank you for a great time - so comfortable!

Our stay this past weekend was quite comfortable. We were there for 2 nights, and wished we had gone for 3. The front desk staff was quite friendly. We received our welcome 'Whoopie Pies' which were delicious. We were also given great recommendations for restaurants, two of which we tried and were very satisfied. The pool and spa were great. Continental breakfast was also fine, the usual that you find at this type of stay. The breakfast dining room was nice and clean. Their self serve beverages (soft drinks, coffee, and cocoa) were avaialble 24 hours, which I thought was a nice offering, as well as popcorn every night from 5-8 pm. Our room was very comfortable, and each time we passed the front desk I helped myself to An 'Atomic' 'Fire'ball...compliments of The 'Fire'side Inn!
