Studio Tour - The Making of Harry Potter.

The AA Hotel Guide 2015 calls Beales Hotel a "striking piece of contemporary design, from its jungle-gym outer packaging to its self-assertively patterned interiors". The hotel features dozens of modern artworks by local students, plus a stylish terrace bar and a restaurant with an AA Rosette.

The 59 individually designed rooms have wall-mounted flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, Egyptian cotton bedding and under-floor heating in the ensuite bathroom.

Enjoyed Most: Location was OK
Other Comments: The dining experience - There was a large family pre wedding party of 18 people that completely took over the whole dining room in terms of noise and service. We waited nearly an hour for our starters. It was like dining in a 'bear garden' Our room (51) had three faults: 1) Bathroom extractor fan did not work. 2) Underfloor heating in Bathroom did not work. 3) Light in tea/coffee making cupboard did not work.

Enjoyed Most: Location was OK
Other Comments: The beds and the food - My wife ordered a whole place which came with so many capers ladled all over it that it hid the delicate flavour of the place. The beds were too soft and the pillows were like a puff of cotton wool. The wine was too expensive as were all the drinks.
Robin Oct 08, 2015 Littlehampton, United Kingdom
Enjoyed Most: Modern, clean rooms, great evening meal and fabulous value for money.
Other Comments: Just back from 6wks in USA and the bedrooms at Beales were much better than hotel rooms there at a fraction of the price. Anyone staying in the area should definitely choose Beales and will not be disappointed.
