Good Hotel Guide Review
It is a rare treat to stay in a fine Georgian town house that is still very much a family home, with personal photographs and heirlooms complementing the handsome original features. Walter and Nuala Sweeney’s comfortably furnished house, minutes from Beverley centre, is full of antiques, books and curios set against shuttered windows, polished-wood floors and marble fireplaces. ‘Our stay,’ say readers, ‘was an absolute delight from arrival to departure.’ The well-upholstered feel, with plump chairs, pictures and Victorian rugs, continues in the bedrooms: ‘Surely the largest, most eccentric and delightful room we have ever had the pleasure of sleeping in.’ One has a rocking horse, another overlooks the walled garden. Bathrooms are spacious and traditional. Thoughtful extras, including sherry, fresh milk and flowers, are praised, as is the garden. ‘A surprising oasis in the very centre of the town.’ Breakfast includes omelettes, smoked salmon and ‘delicious pancakes’ as well as a full Yorkshire. Readers continue to be astonished by the exceptional value of a stay ‘given the quality of the experience’. (Hannah and Andrew Butterworth)
