“Are you sure this is it?”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

...we asked each other, after entering the hotel. The reviews we had read prior to booking were so positive, the description of the hotel so extraordinary, that we were rather surprised by the actual reality. From the outside the hotel does look very charming indeed, with its "Georgian elegance", as they advertise it. But unfortunately, what works well from the outside, the quite beautiful appearance, does not work inside the hotel at all. To me it seemed more like a worn-out, old-fashioned guesthouse. It was not at all the classy environment I was expecting. After we had been given our key (which was attached to an absurdly disproportionally big wooden key fob) we climbed up several flights of stairs to reach a tiny, slightly smelly and stuffy room - which looked more like a servant's room, a hundred years ago. After we complained, we were given another room - which was bigger and a little less stuffy. Still, the whole interior of the hotel, particularly the rooms, could desperately do with a facelift - everything seems old and creaky, especially the bathrooms need a proper renovation.

The only outstanding aspect of this hotel is its fabulous restaurant, the food was without a doubt the highlight of our stay, it was truly excellent.

Unfortunately, that won't be enough to make us want to return.

Just back after great weekend in Beech Hill Country House Hotel. Loved our stay. The food was beautiful. The new paths are excellent - dog loved them - and we did them quite a few times over the weekend! We were in one of the newer rooms and it worked really well with us having the dog. Everybody very kind and helpful. Looking forward to our next stay already! Thanks for being so dog-friendly too - it is great and we really appreciate it. This must be our 4th stay.

Patsy and her staff made us all feel so welcome. She took the time each day to sit down and chat to her guests, advised about the sites to see and provided detailed maps. The food was superb, beds the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever slept in and the homely bar with fire made it like home from home.

Room Tip: The rooms in the new extension are more modern but those in the original part of the listed building...

I have just returned after spending two nights with a friend in this hotel. We were treated so well we found the staff so friendly and helpful. Our room was very comfortable and big and the beds like wise. We enjoyed all our meals, the food was of a high quality, the choice exceptional what a good chef. The owners should be very proud of their Hotel.

We stayed here between Christmas and New Year. Got a fantastic rate with a travelzoo deal. 3 course dinner with a glass of wine each, bed and breakfast for two people was just £89 all in - per couple. Absolute bargain. We had a great time. Room was lovely. Food and service in the restaurant for both dinner and breakfast was great. Lovely place to relax.

I have stayed at the Beech Hill a number of times and hosted several business events there. The welcome is always super-friendly, the beds are comfortable, food is excellent and the bar with its roaring fire is like a home from home. Lovely setting, within easy reach of the city. In short, hospitality personified.
