Last visit was in April with my good lady and we were back again while attending a Badminton Tournament at the Sports Centre close by. There is little to criticize in connection with this hotel which is kept to a very high standard both in décor and service although it does have its "moments" in regard to the latter! Rooms...

Thank you for your review of Beales Hotel after your return visit to us. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay, and that bar a couple of small service issues, you have found all the staff to be friendly and responsive. This is a busy time of year for us with our Christmas party night season, so I am...

Used the hotel's lounge facilities to accommodate a wifi need. £4.20 for a coffee is extortionate, but I guess that makes up for not making any money out of me otherwise! Good location and opposite a shopping mall, with plenty of choice for eating, if the hotel's restaurant is not an option. Negative point was the lack of attention from...

Perfect stay, couldn't ask for more. Stayed here for a wedding, the room was clean and very well presented, reception staff friendly and very accommodating when we asked to check in and out early and late ☺️ I'd recommend to anyone.

A return visit and just as enjoyable as before. We are impressed with the professionalism of all the staff and the high standard of everything. The charge for a Sunday night stay including breakfast and dinner made our visit an incredible bargain.

Thank you for your kind second review of Beales Hotel. I am so glad we have kept up the good work, and looked after you so well again.

Great place for a one night stay. Lovely room with big bed and everything needed in it. £89 dinner, bed and English breakfast is unbeatable. For dinner I ordered "Whole Mackerel." It came encased on puff pastry. Mackeral Wellington? Weird but strangely appealing.

Thank you for your 5/5 review of Beales Hotel, for which we are all very grateful, I am pleased you took advantage of our amazing value dinner, bed and breakfast deals which makes us far better value than an equivalent budget hotel once dinner and breakfast for two have been taken into account.

This was the first time we have stayed at this hotel and it will be the first of many as we have family in Hatfield. We normally stay at another cheaper hotel further up the road and have always thought we would give Beals a try. We are so glad we did. It is not cheap, but, you do get...

What a lovely review of Beales Hotel ! I am so delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us, and took advantage of the excellent meeting facilities as well. Your comment about the service being just right, informal yet professional, is amazingly hard to get in balance, as one guest might prefer more informal but others might prefer more formal....

Excellent clean and comfortable hotel room. Very well priced at £71 for a double room. The beds are massive and just the right hardness, my only comment would be we booked a room for 2 adults and a child, so we're expecting a pull out bed or something of that sort. Reviewing my booking it does state that it's a...

Thank you for your review of Beales Hotel, I am very pleased that you found the beds so comfortable, they are made by Hypnos, who make reputedly the most comfortable beds in the world, and equip all the Royal Palaces with them.

I have been staying here, along with a number of colleagues for a few months now. The hotel is very clean, the rooms are very nice and beds are amazing.
