We had a two night break there and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were so helpful and friendly. The room was lovely, clean, comfortable and spacious, and a good hospitality tray. We had dinner on one night, which was excellent, and so was the breakfast. We hope to return!

Thank you for your lovely email, and this super review of Beales Hotel, I am so glad that you both enjoyed your stay so much, We have been open for twelve years since the £5.5M demolition and rebuilding of our old Hatfield Lodge Hotel, Since then we have been continuously updating the hotel and it still feels very fresh.

I stayed over one night, arriving tired and hungry on a Sunday evening. The welcome was warm and friendly and the hotel decorated in beige wood with some truly horrible artwork on the walls. No matter. The double room was comfortable and the window actually opened. I do like a bit of fresh air in a hotel room. Tea and...

Thank you for your very detailed 4/5 or 80% review of Beales Hotel. I am pleased you had a good welcome and good service from the team. We are bemused by your description of the artwork as truly horrible, all 130 contemporary works around the hotel are original and of very high quality, your statement is very sweeping in nature....

Thank you for your review of Beales Hotel, I am sorry that you didn't really enjoy the hotel very much, We are perplexed by your comments about the hotel not being modern, it was built in 2004 and is by far the most contemporary hotel in the Hatfield, Welwyn Garden City, St Albans area. However I hope you will reconsider...

Booked this stay through a Goupon deal, it turned out to be very good value, we had never thought of staying here as usually use the Mercure. No negatives really, bed comfy, room has everything you need. Bathroom had everything but is showing signs of wear.

Thank you for your 5/5 review of Beales Hotel, I am pleased that you have given us a try as a change from the Mercure. I apologise on behalf of Mark Schipper General Manager for the lack of service of teas and coffees on the Sunday morning, this is clearly not of our usual four star standard. And I will...
