Last month I spent 3 days at Bay Hill while attending a meeting at a huge high rise hotel 4 miles away. The location is quiet and beautiful. I planned on eating at several restaurants but found the food and service to be excellent; so I took all my meals there. Request a second floor room overlooking the golf course....

Stayed for a night while passing through Orlando. The location is convenient to dozens of restaurants on Sand Lake, and the hotel grounds are very nice. Be prepared for their dress code for dining and golf. Their are some good rates to be found here online. The wifi did not work very well in our room, and did not work...

A group of eight golfers travelled from Manchester to Orlando in April. We needed a place to stay and a venue for golf. Bay Hill was fabulous and we even got to meet Arnold! The course was challenging but playable. The staff were extremely helpful, and friendly. While it was costly - it was not excessive for an iconic venue....

We spent a very enjoyable 3 days at the Lodge. The staff were very attentive and efficient. The golf was challenging, but not overly so. The room was a bit dated and we had a very uncomfortable bed, which I think had seen its fair share of guests, but otherwise adequate. The food was very good, but not outstanding, as...

A group of 8 of us stayed and played here in late April, the whole experience was first class and everything we'd hoped it would be.

We went from Boca to Orlando for a father-son week-end of golf. We played Shingle Creek Saturday afternoon and went to Bay Hill for the evening and a 7:50 a.m.tee time on the Bay Hill Championship Course. Bay Hill was the high point of the trip--tee times every 10 minutes so there's no waiting on every shot or someone hitting...

What a great resort. Very classy and with a classic old time feel. It screams 70's but in the best way possible. It is completely updated and very formal. Mr. Palmer does not allow hats in the clubhouse or inside areas. Pants and collared shirts at dinner (at the least) but a jacket would be better. In this day and...

My husband and I returned to Bay Hill after many years. It was still warm and welcoming. The rooms are cosy and the building is very well kept. The food was very good. Sort of well done comfort food.
