What can I say?.....firstly ignore all of the negative reviews, I really don't know what they are talking about! This fabulous little gem hidden away and yet so close to the city of Derry is just wonderful. My mum and I stayed there last week for what started out as 2 nights and quickly became 3 as we couldn't bear to leave! I am not exaggerating (and I am a fussy person), but everything was perfect. On arrival the gardens with their attractive water features and the view of that fabulous porch at the hotel entrance instantly makes you feel happy that you have picked the right place. The staff are second to none. You know it's a family run hotel as it has a heart, as do the staff. From Norma on reception who quickly and kindly took our bags to our rooms and met all our requests throughout our stay, as did the very pleasant and hospitable sisters Brenda and Helen, to Seamus, John and Mark in the lounge who were not only courteous and attentive but who regaled tales while we enjoyed either an afternoon scone (which are a must!!!) or an after dinner drink by the roaring, cosy fire. JJ in the restaurant is a lovely waitress and looks after you very well and the chef is a sheer genius...everything from their home made sausages at breakfast to dining at its best in the evening will leave you wanting to come back again and again. The jewel in the crown is Patsy, the joint proprietor and a truly exceptional hostess. If like me you think that a fine venue such as Beech Hill can be a bit stuffy with standoffish owners then think again as Patsy has re-written the book! She is a great conversationalist, super efficient and organised and extremely busy. Yet, she always has time for you. She will advise you on trips and an itinerary for the day and looks forward to hearing all about it when you return.

All in all a truly remarkable place where you will find peace and tranquility, great food and wines, comfort and relaxation, interesting history and artefacts, and a welcome like no other. Do yourself a huge favour, forget about your troubles and woes and just go...you will like me find yourself not wanting to leave.

Room Tip: Our room was in the more modern annex and was perfect in terms of peace, comfort, space and accessibility.

My husband and I stayed just one night at this wonderful hotel. It was magic!!
We have an enormouse room (no 59) - bottle of wine in room on arrival - and were
treated with great politeness and friendliness by every member of staff we met.

The grounds are gorgeous -a great place to walk off the first classbreakfast.
The hotel is steeped in history - so much nicer that the modern hotels that are springing
up everywhere.

Well done Beech Hill Country House!!

We booked the BeechHill for our friends and relatives for the full weekend to celebrate our wedding. The rooms are beautiful, food fantastic and a wonderful, cosy atmosphere. We would definitely recommend that you stay in the BeechHill and enjoy the beautiful gardens.

We found this great country house by chance on the internet. We decided to ride to Derry from south of Dublin at 14.00 the same day! After a wonderful ride up along the coast we arrived and immediately liked what we saw.
This is exactly the kind of hotel want to stay in. We just don't like modern hotels as they can not have the same character as an historic country house. Our reception could not have been more friendly or welcoming. The receptionist gives a great first impression to guests. Maybe we looked a bit worn out...but we were put into a suite and what a fabulous room(s) it was. Top quality furnishings, huge bedroom and sitting room, dressing room, bathroom and separate wc. What more could we ask for?
Onto dinner and to yet more warm and friendly staff. Out two servers (male and female) looked after us with smiles and professionalism. As we were on the set menu we did not experience the full menu but what we had was very good indeed. The restaurant is a very fine dining room with wonderful views to the gardens, ponds and the mill wheel.

I don't understand the comment before about the breakfast. We had juices, fruits, fresh fruit salad, yoghurt's, porridge (or cereals), fresh croissants, pain au chocolat, full Irish fry, etc. It was all we needed and all we could eat. The bacon was actually crispy and the sausages actually cooked! Usually this is not the case in buffet breakfasts.

Onto dinner and this was equally

Setting was beautiful, rooms old but modern annex if you can't do the the stairs, food superb but staff made the stay even better. Friendly without being intrusive. Lovely walks in hotel grounds which is just far enough out of Londonderry to escape. Plenty of walks in the locality & other restaurants should you prefer something else but please try the hotel restaurant at least once. Very inventive breakfast menu , such a change from the full irish which is also great- some mornings we only had a buffet but others had a la carte choice.
Such a joy to stay somewhere which isn't a replica of every other hotel.

Room Tip: If you have trouble walking get a room on the ground floor
