I would like to start this review by saying that I have never left a review on a hotel. I am fairly easy going and usually accept the hotels I stop in, but felt obliged to the public to make them aware of the disaster that is the Beechwood.
I had planned to stay in this hotel with a colleague for 3 nights... we tollerated 1 (and that was because we arrived late and was unable to get anywhere else). Upon arriving, my keys were simply left out on the reception desk, with nobody on the reception desk to process my booking. The receptionist was working on the bar, which meant anyone could have taken them!! When walking up to my room, I noticed room numbers stuck on with cellotape or even written on with black marker pen. The doors didnt go down to the floor, so some rooms blocked noise out by using towels. When getting in my room, my windows were broke and wouldnt close, so it was really cold all night (the locks were hanging off). I had a dead snail on the window cill, the net curtains were full of holes and very dirty and I wouldnt like to suggest what was smeared down my wall (apparently it was paint.... whatever!) and the room had damp patches everywhere. It was also really noisey, with music playing until well after midnight. My colleague, also had just as much joy with this horrendous place. The lock on her door didnt work. She had no hot water (it had all run out when asking the staff), her TV didnt work , the carpets were filthy and she had water flooding from her ceiling at 12.30am. All problems were complained about, but the dead snail would have been more accomodating then the staff in this hell hole.
Speaking of which, none of the staff spoke a word of english, they wore scruffy clothes and were very very rude.
How this hotel stays in business is totally beyond me.
Save your money and stop in a shed, it would be more enjoyable!!
