Can't fault Beales! When a hotel shows photos on their own website of EVERY SINGLE room you know it's going to be spot on. Parking was free and easy. When I called Beales in advance of the stay there wasn't a silly menu system it was straight through to friendly staff. Wifi was free and fast enough to stream video....

Massive Thanks to Lyndsey and the banqueting staff at Beales Hotel for organising my 60th Birthday party on Saturday. I have had nothing but good feedback from the many guests who attended.

We recently attended a family celebration at Beales Hatfield which took several months to plan and throughout the whole process the team at the hotel were responsive, reactive, accommodating and very considerate of specific needs and requests.

This was ok - clean and reasonably comfortable. No real complaints, just a bit bland and ordinary. Breakfast was straightforward but lacked much choice. Well situated next to a The Galleria with easy access to the A1(M).

I found hairs in the bed linen, for which, to give the hotel its due, I did receive a discount. Whilst the breakfast was okay there were no bread rolls, which I found strange and when I asked if there were any croissants I got a terse "no" from the staff as it were a scene from Oliver Twist. I...
