We stayed at Steele Hill East in June 2011.
The pool was a lot of fun, especially for families and children. There are two outdoor pools and two indoor pools. The main indoor pool (located in the atrium) included a Roman Spa, smaller hot tub, slide, and children's wading pool. This was where we spent most of our time at the resort, and it was beautiful.
The grounds were beautiful. There was a pond, multiple pools, places to walk, and two small playgrounds for children. The mountain scenery is breathtaking.
Our suite was relatively clean, minus some bathroom and hot tub issues (see the cons below).
The staff was always very friendly and helpful.
The two-bedroom, three bathroom East suite that we stayed in was slightly tired looking. The furniture was comfortable, but it needs to be updated. There was a horrible musty smell throughout the entire suite, and we bought two candles at the Yankee Candle Outlet - unfortunately, this did little to help.
The bathroom standing showers all had black mold growing in the cracks and around the shower doors. It was disgusting! The rest of the bathrooms were pretty clean, but the mold was unsatisfactory.
The master bedroom had a nice whirlpool tub, but it was completely unusable. When we turned it on, black chunks came out with the water - it appeared as though it was rarely used and not cleaned well in between. We turned it on two times, and the same thing occurred each time. When the water drained, the tub was filled with black slime. It was completely revolting.
The outside pool by our suite had gorgeous scenery of the mountain. We attempted to sit out there with books on multiple occasions, but the resort seemed to have a bee problem. The pool area was infested with them, and there were atleast 5 circling each table area. My husband is allergic to hornets and wasps, so we were unable to relax by the pool, which was a huge nuisance.
Sanbornton, NH and the surrounding area is fairly quiet, and there is not a lot to do. It is a great place to go to relax. There are some outlet stores and limited restaurants, but for more entertainiment, you will need to drive to Concord or Manchester.
We enjoyed the large indoor pool, but that was about it. We do not plan on ever returning to the resort, as we were less than impressed.
