Historical Traveler Reviews Belleview Biltmore Hotel Golf, Beach and Spa Resort Clearwater

Unbelievable experience

from

The hotel and staff were wonderful. The golf course is n spectacular shape and the greens were perfect. The hotel has such a fascinating history. Its an experience like no other. The new chef has done a wonderful job with the new menu. Can't wait to go back.

Definitely a nice stay

from

My husband and I just stayed at this hotel last week (March 9 2003). I have never written a review before but I read others that helped give me a realistic portrayal of the Belleview, so I thought I would give one myself. Some things I read were true. Yes, the hotel is definite need of some paint. When we walked in the grand lobby, I did get that old smell so I started to get nervous. But you know what, the place is very old, very historic, and I would not deem it a dump. Our room did have the described ripped screens but we had a nice view of the pool (you can request it for no extra charge or upgrade). I was pleasantly suprised to find Aveda samples in the very clean bathroom. It's the little things, girls!! The pool is nice, both indoor and out. A few spring breakers. But all under control. The prices at the outdoor bar of course are ridiculous (way above average!) But we brought our own little refreshments which is discreetly allowed. If you are into working out, this is not the place to find a great gym. Much of the equipment is broken. But nice jacuzzi, indoor and out. You aren't right on the water as the picture sort of distorts, rather you must walk over a big golf course. SO to wrap up, for the money NICE! And to top it all of a HUGE country superstar was staying at the hotel who I got to talk to. It doesn't get much better than that.

A horrible disappointment

from

"what a dump" and how unbeliveably misrepresented. The internet shows this a swank resort when in reality I would have much preferred a Comfort or Red Roof Inn. This unfortunate experience began at check-in where reservations were lost and desk staff was rude and refused to accomodate or refund money even though they didn't have the room I reserved! The room we finally were stuck with was in great disrepair, dingy and dirty, and had a leaking air conditioner that soaked the carpet from stem to stern. The grounds were unkept, littered, weed covered, and the exterior of the hotel was in drastic need of repair, paint and had no apparent attention in many years. I will NEVER again stay at this poor excuse for a hotel and they should be sued for the misrepresented advertising. It's hard to believe they book weddings-what a sham!

We Loved the Bellview Biltmore

from

We had an Awesome stay at this beautiful Victorin Hotel. They are just completing a total renovation. Visit the SPA and be transported to Heaven!Tom Shelly

Bad service, and they don't care

from

Terrible service. They call themselves a resort and spa, but the food service at the golf course stops at 4PM. The bar at the pool is only open on weekends. We waited 45 minutes for a hamburg at the main dining room and then left before getting our food. The rooms are large, but old and poorly painted. When we tried to talk to the manager to complain, guess what? They made us wait for over 10 minutes before we left.

Awful, Musty, Misrepresented

from

If you like breathing, don't go there. The 100 year old wooden structure is stinky, itchy, musty. Besides reminding us of the hotel in The Shining, nothing to recommend about it. It is given three stars, the website looks wonderful, but it's not worth it.

Don't do it...

from

I stayed here in November of 2002. Totally depressing - poky, depressing room and corridors, bad lighting everywhere, the once great architecture ruined with bad modifications and lousy upkeep and general decoration. Really crummy breakfast set-up (everything too cold, too hot, obviously prepared much earlier and kept on ice overnight). The bed was comfy and the sheets were clean.

Faded Victorian Elegance

from

This place is not like any other hotel you will have stayed in ! The oldest continuously-inhabited wooden structure in the world, the layout of the hotel is amazing - from the 400yard long corridors to the indoor pool and spa, it is vastly different from the Holiday Inns, Marriotts, and other 'chain' hotels that seem to have taken over the world.

Rooms are a good size, but ours was showing its age slightly and the ongoing refurbishment program will only improve things. But all was basically clean, and everything worked. Ask for an ocean view room on the 3rd floor or higher - although you could see the Gulf from the hotel grounds when it opened in 1897, later building now obscures the view from most areas.

Hotel facilities were a bit sparse, although we were travelling out of season. The impending opening of the Coffee and Soda Parlour should improve things dramatically.

Definitely worth a try for a night or two.

Wonderful charm

from

Stayed here in mid August 2002. Loved the old world charm. A nice change from business hotels which are all the same. Pool is excellent and as nice as any found at a Cancun or European resort. The gulf is a short walk away. I saw 8 Dolphins one evening only 20 feet from shore! I highly recommend it if you value real character and uniqueness. Very relaxing!

Lots of character but lots of flaws

from

I stayed there from 3/24(Mon) to 3/28(Thurs). I liked the

old victorian architecture. I liked the outside hot tub and the spa facilities (I got a massage) was very nice. I didn't like finding out that the maid made phone calls on my room phone that the hotel tried to charge me for (but didn't). The water in the showers was barely enough. They lost our room reservation for a single room with 2 queen beds (which they made up for with two separate room which was a better deal). The shuttle bus to the beach ran from 10 AM to 5PM. Depending on traffic, the bus can arrive at the beach 40 minutes after it has left the hotel. A taxi after hours costs $9. Don't order the early bird special prime rib dinner. As a member of my party said, it was the worst prime rib that he had ever had. The breakfast buffet of okay and the freshly squeezed orange juice was fantastic. I won't rate this terrible only because I wasn't traveling with anybody that I was trying to impress and I really liked the fresh orange juice in the morning.
