Some very conflicting reviews on here, however the hotel was located 3 minutes from where we need to be for a friends party so I decided to 'risk it'. It was perfectly acceptable for the price, however our room was in a newish block (superior room), double bed, desk type table area, wardrobe, bedside table, all extremely clean. Bedding was... More

I have just spent 3 days at the beaches for a training course and I must say it is fantastic value for money. Beautiful food. Very friendly staff who are always willing to help And a very relaxed atmosphere. I am looking forward to staying here again and all ready planning my next stay.

Went to the Beeches for an all day business meeting. It was basic and functional but slightly dated. We had a buffet lunch in the restaurant and there was a good selection of both hot and cold food. The service was good throughout the day.

I have stayed on and off at the Beeches. Never again, this quaint old house deludes itself that it is a quality location.Wrong. Tiny rooms, amateur staff, poky rooms, minute showers and an appallingly low quality breakfast means it is not worth staying there. Year after year the cut backs have swinger quality. My most recent stay is now my... More

Great value hotel. Very comfortable rooms. Food is good but very limited menu - choice of only 5 or 6 main course items - with one of these veggie - and usually one of these is not available! Overall very good though with very helpful courteous staff. Would recommend.

I have just returned from a planned two night stay at this hotel though I left after only one night. In the UK and Europe I would normally stay in budget hotels like Holiday Inn Express or IBIS, so my standards are not particularly high. I expect a reasonably clean and comfortable bed and a clean room and bathroom. On... More

I stayed at the Beeches for 1 night at the end of November and unfortunately was not impressed with the hygiee in the place. In short, I was allocated a room which was very very warm when I walked into it. The room was reminiscent of a 1990's student room but I thought this was ok. When I went into... More
