Pros: The hotel room was fabulous, as well as the view from the room!
Cons: The pools made it hard to relax in peace because of the children and teens taking up the space.
Location: There's nothing to do nearby, but the resort has a lot of amenities to keep you occupied. Location of the hotel was gorgeous, which made you not leave
South side is the best way to go! It is so beautiful and brand new. The pools were alright, definitely for kids. The restaurant food was just okay, nothing crazy about it. Staff was very friendly & willing to help out with anything that we needed!

Pros: My entire family loved the indoor pool area. It was cold and rainy outside so we spent most of our time there.
Location: We came into town for the Pumpkin Festival, but there are many things to do nearby within a short drive, and lots of activities on site as well.
Our room was clean, well maintained and had great ammeneties like a jacuzzi tub, fireplace, and balcony outside so we could take I. The gorgeous views. The staff was great, and the food was amazing.

Stunning Views!

Posted Oct 13, 2016
Pros: The cleanliness and indoor pool area.
Cons: The staff seemed extremely busy.
Location: Steele Hill Resort is about 20 minutes away from the Tilton, NH lakes region and white mountains are all within an hour or less.
The room was immaculate. The service staff at the front desk were very friendly and check-in was a breeze. The food at the restaurant on the resort grounds was above average and not too expensive. Definitely one of the nicest hotels in the NH lakes region.

An aging resort in need of a facelift

Posted Oct 7, 2016
Location: Hermitage Farm nearby for the best pancake breakfast you could ask for. Buy some of their maple syrup that was made there and marvelous!
Let's start with dark road in that doesn't get better at the resort. Unlit roads wind around buildings from the 80's (I know I had a timeshare there). No elevators so not friendly to seniors- we are past hauling our bags up three flights of stairs! The pool area though aesthetically pleasing reeked of chlorine and was so warm we couldn't sit comfortably and watch the grand children. No complimentary coffee in the lobby area in the morning (and they didn't leave one with the coffee maker in the room-or washcloths for that matter!). They called to ask us to come back for a timeshare presentation- I think you can guess my response.

High on the hill, this resort offers a lot!

Posted Sep 28, 2016
Pros: The scenery around the hotel was awesome. The pool area is very nice for families. Beautiful setting!
Cons: Two not-so-nice things about our room were 1. the clogged filter on the side of the whirlpool bath, and 2. the fact that we did not have a screen on
Location: Lots of lake exposure in the area, some nice eateries, the resort itself has many activities and child oversight. Great family place to vacation!
This resort is out there, in the woods, on the hilltop overlooking the beautiful hills of New Hampshire. It is a great spot to rest, relax, and regroup. Upon check-in there was a problem with our room, but we were quickly offered another. Staff was courteous and helpful. Bed was comfortable and clean, and sound quality in hotel was above average. We slept well.

Excellent choice!

Posted Sep 8, 2016
We visit NH often, so we were trying to find a new place we've never stayed before. I stumbled upon a review of the resort and decided to give it a try, since it was very affordable. We do not regret choosing to stay here, everything was great! We will definitely be returning!!

Plenty to occupy little kids

Pool area was a blast for our kids. Our room could have been a little cleaner and didn't have soap.

Steele Hill Resort

Posted Aug 9, 2016
Pros: The View and the comfort of the room
Cons: Some, not all of the staff seem to have a hard time smiling, although they were helpful. Vacuum around the walls in the rooms on a regular bases.
Location: The only place we went to was Gunstock, in Gilford for Soulfest. Go to the top of the mountain and stand in awe at the beauty around you.
Our stay was fabulous. Our room was wonderful with the exception that the room hadn't been vacuumed along the walls for quite some time, and the wall above the dresser should probably be wiped down. The bed was excellent. My husband and I slept like babies. I wish I knew what type of mattress it was, because I sure would love to have one in my home. The stairs on the outside of the building we stayed in could definitely use some cleaning. Everything else was wonderful. The breakfast was awesome! We will definitely stay there again in the future. Hopefully with the children and grandchildren. Last but not least, the VIEW IS ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING.

Beautiful view of the mountains and lake

Posted Aug 8, 2016
Pros: The view and location is good.
Cons: Yes, cleanliness could be improved. Property needs updating of very dangerously deep outdoor pools and needs to add legitimate whirlpools outdoors.
Location: Lakes, Factory Outlets, Swimming, Boating
This resort has a phenomenal view of the mountains and lake. We stayed in Studio South, a newer constructed building. The 2 outdoor pools were a disappointment, as they are very old concrete and very dangerous being 5 feet at low end and 9 feet at deep end. As this is a "resort" it was disappointing that outdoor whirlpools were nonexistent, although advertised. No whirlpool at the South side pool a they took the whirlpool and concerted it to a kiddie pool. At the 2nd outdoor pool near "The Grille" there was a small concrete area with small holes in the concrete but no jets, no circulation. The concrete pool here is very old and small, so many people were in the pool at one time splashing and lots of splashing children. Again, this pool is dangerously deep for adults and children. For being billed as a "resort" I would expect amenities of several new outdoor whirlpools throughout the property and new outdoor pools. Cleanliness could be improved of the room. At checking in to Studio South, there were potato chips about 1/2 inch under the sofa, not vacuumed, 2 small spots on the fitted sheet-not clean and a long black hair on the floor in the bathroom. I have blonde hair. Needless to say, I washed all dishes and silverware in the dishwasher before using the utensils. For the high price of the room and advertising it as a "resort", I would expect more.
