The contemporary Beales Hotel is designed to stand out from the crowd. Its striking exterior blends giant glass panels and cedar wood slats.
The hotel is within 15 minutes' drive of the M25 in Hertfordshire. Local attractions include the cathedral town of St Albans, Knebworth House and Hatfield House. For a family day out, the hotel is less than a 30-minute drive from the Go Ape adventure park at Trent Park, Butterfly World, Lee Valley White Water Centre and Warner Bros. 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. Guests get complimentary access to the Hertfordshire Sports Village, 10 minutes' walk from the hotel, which has a large gym, an indoor swimming pool, and squash and tennis courts.
