Nice quiet hotel, opposite the Galleria shoppingmall. The room is nice, the beds are good. The food in the hotel is great, from breakfast to dinner. The hotel is not too big and the staff is really friendly.

Thank you for your very kind review of Beales Hotel, I am very glad that we looked after you so well, and in particular that you found the hotel to be nice and quiet. We are situated on quite a main road, but we designed the hotel to be very quiet at the back where all the bedrooms are. I... More

We spent just one night here while going to Battle Proms at nearby Hatfield House. Our room was on the first floor and a good size. Bathroom had a bath and over bath shower which was excellent. Loved the large bath towels. Air con was great as it was a hot evening and it worked really well and was fairly... More

Room very quiet and convenient. Air conditioning a plus during an English heat wave! Wish suburban hotels in Britain would provide wash cloths. A little stingy on the towels (1 small, 2 large provided). No safe for valuables which I would expect in a hotel that caters to business people

Booked a Secret Escape and asked for a single mattress bed but it was simply two beds zipped together - zipped beds are great for hotels wanting to keep their options open but really not suitable for couples - please always have proper beds for couples.

The staff and manager were consistently helpful through our stay, including some unusual requests. While you're there, check the art from young artists on the walls. Enough is good to make it worthwhile. Unfortunate surroundings now, but the interior is what's important, especially if you're staying for business or visiting people locally. Recommended. David

This is a very kind review of Beales Hotel, thank you very much.

The average age of the artists was about 45, nothing like the stereotypical... More

Thank you to all the staff at Beales for making our recent weekend conference such a success. Good spaces for discussion. We had a wonderful dinner and chose from a menu big enough to have real choice and small enough to know that it was prepared especially for the occasion. The catering for our conference was just right. The support... More

The 3 course lunch included coffee and petit-fours and was served in their modern, spacious restaurant; food was top class, splendidly presented and served by competent staff befitting this 4 star hotel; a booklet on our table told us the food they use is locally sourced, thus cutting down...
