Beech Hill Country House Hotel Review

Journey past a fairy-tale gatehouse amid clumps of beech trees, and past streams and a duck pond to reach this grand 1729 country home set in 32 acres of woodland. Beech Hill is very much attuned to the present with a number of conveniences to satisfy the demanding traveler (a trouser press, and tea and coffeemakers in-room). The vast honeymoon suite, with a four-poster bed, overlooks the gardens. Rooms in the old building are decorated in Georgian style; 10 rooms in a modern extension are larger and contemporary. A museum celebrates the fact that Beech Hill housed a contingent of U.S. Marines during World War II. Signposted walking trails of the grounds (print and audio guides available) take you past sites where the Marines would have spent time. It's a 30-minute walk from the hotel to Ebrington Square and the Peace Bridge (which will take you to the other side of the city) and is well worth the effort.
