The Omni Bedford Springs is a very grand, resort style hotel nestled in the Cumberland valley. It's location is beautiful and creates a sense of peace and solitude. It would be great for a romantic stay but is also kid friendly so good for families too.
The hotel itself is 5 star all round. The rooms are very nice if not spectacular, the lobby and sitting areas are numerous and welcoming and the grounds are beautifully kept. The indoor pool is splendid in its architecture whilst the outdoor pool is perfectly situated overlooking the valley and the golf course. Note: when busy, if you haven't 'reserved' a bed by the pool by 10.30AM, you won't get one
The food is very good - we ate at the Tavern where the food was good value and also had food at the pool where an army of staff keep you fed and watered to your hearts content with an excellent choice of food and cocktails.
The activities are fun, if a little expensive. I did the segway tour with my son which was really enjoyable but $75 each for a 1 hour tour through the local woods is a little steep. The golf course is challenging and very well maintained if again, a bit on the expensive side. If you want to avoid the cost, the multiple nearby trails are a good way to get some exercise and enjoy the mainly wooded grounds.
The staff are excellent and have your interest at heart in everything they do.
We will return!
Footnote: - we used a Groupon for a two night stay (excellent value) and spent one evening talking to a couple that were doing the same thing but for them it was their 4th trip and raved about previous visits. However, they had picked up on what they felt was a noticeable drop off in standards, mainly cleanliness and service - significant enough for them to say that they wouldn't come back at normal full price. For our first time, we didn't notice which may just highlight the stellar reputation that this hotel has had. It may now just rank as excellent rather than out of this world!
