The reality is if I am in the area again I will probably look for something a bit better but there was nothing wrong with the hotel. They had some unusually quirky contemporary items built into the room that really didn't hit the mark with me. I also felt the bed was a bit too much on the soft side....

Thank you for your review of Beales Hotel, I am sorry that you are left underwhelmed by your stay with us, a luke warm reaction to the hotel is certainly not what I or any of the team want. 85% of our Tripadvisor reviews are either Excellent or Good, so I am sorry we didn't impress you as much as...

Sorry about having to move you from West Lodge Park to Beales Hotel.

Stayed here one night on a weekday on business. Hotel didn't seem very full though. Nice big off road car park. Modern and stylish room with free wi-fi in room. Had evening meal with work colleague, shame the restaurant only had one other table of three eating so no atmosphere and very empty. Bar area ok but small. Overall nice...

Thank you for your review of Beales Hotel, I am pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, although am sorry it wasn't busier on the night in question.

I usually sleep really badly in hotel rooms and wake with a bad back (which I don't normally suffer from except in hotel beds) but the bed in Beales was the most comfortable ever, and with lovely natural soft feathers not horrid lumpy sweaty synthetic rubbish. The restaurant is excellent, with tasty well-presented food. Although catering for a large business...

Stayed here for a family birthday event. The staff were absolutely fantastic and very pleasant. It was lovely to get an individually designed room rather than the boring same from the chain hotels. Great to see plenty of power points and WiFi. Breakfast was excellent with locally sourced food. Looking forward to staying there again. Thank you. Russ

Thank you for your kind review of Beales Hotel, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. The hotel is indeed very individually designed, we have run a hotel on this site since 1964, but knocked down the old one in 2004 to build the gleaming one you see today. The artwork was specially chosen by competition within the faculty...
