Was my first time to this property and was looking forward to a relaxing time. It was far from it. My initial stay was at the Bay at Mills Fall's which is part of this property. Upon arriving after a 2 hour drive I was ready to relax. The hotel did not have any front desk staff instead a sign to tell you to call the other location to get your key. I did this and got a person who was not very helpful in telling me where to go and eventually hung up on me with very little information. I ended up going up the street to this location only to be told to go to another location to get my key. Finally got my key after a run around that really was not needed or could have been explained in the email to come to the other location to get your key. Got into room and had a lovely view of the lake. All was well till I returned in the night. Upon entering the room there were about 10-15 spiders in the room on the wall and on the bed. I went into a shoe killing spree but they kept coming. Was not going to sleep well in this room so i packed up and went to the front desk of the other building. Reception apologized and switched me to the premier hotel which is here. Checked in and got a very nice room. Finally thought i was going to get some sleep. I was wrong sadly, at about 3AM the AC unit made this awful banging clanging noise. Upon inspection something was caught in it. I turned it off but the clanging went on for at least an hour from the AC and something above me like a dripping noise. The AC was covered in mold which by the morning had done me in with alergies. The next morning I went to the front desk to let them know the really poor night stay I had. It seemed like they have never had a negative comment for the lady at the desk was befuddled as to why I wanted to see the manager (to whom was not available). I left my number to be called when they were available. I unfortunately missed the call and tried to call back the VM of the manager is super unprofessional no identification if you are calling the place or not just a name and a beep which makes you think you are talking to him till you realize its just the message machine. Def would not come back I sent the manager an email detailing this and have yet to receive any response or call. Really unprofessional. Read less

Our room had a beautiful view of the lake. Our room was decorated in a nautical theme, with a comfortable king size bed and a window seat where we could sit and enjoy the lake view. The location was perfect, it is right in the center of town. We were able to easily walk to every place in town that we wanted to go to.

Not to be missed! Beautiful view of Lake Winnipesaukee. Hotel is so comfortable and clean. Relaxing on balcony off of guest room is wonderful! Restaurants in the area are excellent. Shopping is good too! Good location for exploring other activities in the area.

My guestroom here was lovely and the staff I interacted with were delightful. I enjoyed having a balcony view of the lake and the convenience of being right in downtown Meredith. Parking was simple. The rooms were pretty well-appointed and, again, freshly redesigned. At the same time, I didn't entirely enjoy my experience for two main reasons: 1. The first room I was assigned was directly over the bar which was playing loud music until 11 pm. The level of soundproofing was such that I could hear all the words to all the songs. I asked for and received another room one floor higher could not longer hear the bar, though late on a Friday it took 25 minutes for someone to come and let me into my new room (there is no staff on-site late at night) 2. The balconies that face the lake are also right next to the fairly busy road that goes right through the center of town and are not well-insulated, so there was traffic and truck noise all day and night. For people used to traffic noise this might be no big deal but if you're expecting idyllic and serene, you'd be better off at Church Landing. I really enjoyed all the funky little book-filled spaces in this building and, again, all the staff I dealt with went above and beyond to make sure my stay was a nice one. Read less

Fabulous hotel. Room was beautiful with fabulous view and there was a birthday present left for me on our arrival. They don't do breakfast there and we only had a 5 minute walk to Church Landing for breakfast and this was really beautiful as well.
