Stayed here for 4 nights and it was a very pleasant stay. I have to say though you've got to like green. Green towels, green carpets, green lino in the bathroom green based wallpaper. Once you've got over this the hotel is very good with a high standard of service with a smile.
The building itself is on one of the main streets in Beverley so you may get disturbed by car noise or possibly late night revellers so rooms at the back will be quieter. Mine was at the front opposite the Green Dragon pub but I had no issues sleeping.
The building is old so you'll find there are some creaks etc all add character. The character thing I discovered was a loaded mousetrap in one of the cupboards. (It's in room 22 top right hand cupboard above the bed BTW) Still at least it didn't have a dead mouse in it nor were there any mouse droppings. I'm not going to ding the hotel a point for this, like I said it's an old building so you've got to expect the odd surprise.
The hotel only has limited car parking at the rear so make sure you get there early to bag a spot.
The Wi Fi was free and worked reliably but I could not establish a VPN connection.
Eating out in Beverly should be easy enough as there are loads of bars and restaurants in walking distance. I chose the Green Dragon which is right opposite the hotel which was clean and pleasant and if you're on a budget / per diem is very good value for money.
Breakfast was in my room rate so I don't know what they charge for it but it was ok as far as I was concerned. If you want cooked breakfast they will take an order and cook it fresh rather than from bain maries / chafing drums.
The hotel does have some music on some nights so you might want to check if this bothers you.
Overall very good and I will definitely stay here again if I'm in the area. less
