Good Hotel Guide Review
In a ‘wonderful’ walled garden, yet just minutes from the centre of Beverley, this classic Georgian town house is brimful of family treasures accumulated by owners Walter and Nuala Sweeney, who ‘treat their guests as friends’. It has a ‘superb‘ yet ‘comfortably furnished’ interior of shuttered sash windows, polished-wood floors, chandeliers, marble fireplaces, antiques, books, artwork and family photos. The ‘first-class welcome’ includes a large pot of tea in the sitting room and, later, a ‘personal tour of the lovely garden’ if you wish. Bedrooms, which ‘feel like guest rooms in a friend’s rather grand house’, have family heirlooms, big solid beds, comfy armchairs and crammed bookcases. One overlooks the garden, another, ‘ridiculously large’, has two double beds and a sweep of sash windows. ‘Excellent amenities’ include sherry, fresh milk, flowers and teas and coffees. The ‘wide choice for breakfast’ includes omelettes, poached eggs with prosciutto and cheese, as well as a traditional Yorkshire. Readers enthuse: ‘A memorable stay’, ‘Walter and Nuala were perfect hosts.’ (Mark Mulrooney, and others)
