Good Hotel Guide Review
Minutes from Beverley centre, this Georgian town house whisks you off to a world of refinement with its handsome interiors, artwork and treasures, and walled garden. Walter and Nuala Sweeney welcome ‘guests as friends’ to share their much-loved, comfortably furnished home. Antiques, books, curios and family photographs are set against shuttered windows, polished-wood floors, chandeliers and marble fireplaces. A ‘warm welcome’ of a large pot of tea in the sitting room sets the tone; a guided tour of the ‘lovely garden’ is also offered. Big bedrooms are comfortable and eclectic rather than swish and stylish, with antiques and family heirlooms – a rocking horse in one – books, patterned carpets and floral curtains. One overlooks the garden, another has two double beds and a sweep of sash windows. Bathrooms are spacious and traditional. Thoughtful extras, including sherry, fresh milk and flowers, are praised. A generous choice at breakfast ranges from omelettes and poached eggs with prosciutto to pancakes and a full Yorkshire, plus a flush of different teas. ‘Excellent value,’ concludes a reader.
