We went to Beales for the Groupon afternoon tea in January. Upon arriving at reception the lady was very sharp and when asked where the restaurant was she said 'down there' and pointed the way. We sat and the waiter came in and out several times and it was only when we called

I am sorry you didn't enjoy your visit to Beales Hotel for afternoon tea on the Groupon offer. We believe you were part of the table which has already complained about afternoon tea on this site a few reviews down and to which I replied on the 20th January. Then I said that if you had said something at the time about the dry sandwiches then we would have done something about it immediately and ensured you were happy. It is always too late after the event for our hard working staff to do anything concrete about your complaint. It is noticeable that since that review in January every review about afternoon tea has been most positive, and since then we have served dozens and dozens of afternoon teas without complaint. Sorry though that you were not happy, this is never our intention of course. Andrew Beale Managing Director Beales Hotels

Check-in is usually 2pm, but they have always asked me for expected time of arrival. I have on some occasions arrived earlier and if the room is ready they are happy to let you check in. Check out us 11am.
