Beales is a contemporary hotel just opposite the Galleria shopping centre. Large car park and set back from the road. The room was large, clean and well presented as was the en suite. I was surprised at how quiet the room was, especially at night but did I sleep well? No! The mattress totally undermined the image the hotel is trying to present. Old, lumpy and with small feathers coming out of it. So soft that both my wife and I rolled down the V and ended up in the middle. It was like trying to sleep on a steep bank, rubbish!
Breakfast in the morning was very good and the food nice and fresh, a difficult thing to achieve for a small hotel with no much turn over in the morning.
The bar is small and not too pricey for hotel.
All the staff were very polite and nothing was too much trouble, or so it seemed.
Real shame that the mattress destroyed my nights sleep and thus my enjoyment of my stay. Would I go again, that would depend on getting a nice new firm mattress!
Apparently they are in the middle of replacing all the mattresses (or so they said when we checked out).
