Sales and Marketing News

The Beales Hotel Special Events programme for 2012 is now live with eye catching new flyers to promote the first three events [pics right]

www.bealeshotels.co.uk continues to do exceedingly well, with over 18’000 unique visitors a month to the WLP site, 9’000 unique visitors a month to the BH site, and over 7’000 unique visitors a month to the Group site.

Estates News

We have finally finished the mammoth task of replacing the chipped bedroom furniture in the 53 BH bedrooms, thanks to our joiner Errol Beamish. Memo to self: never buy laminate furniture again!

Bedrooms 50 and 51 go off this month for an eight week refurbishment – the Hadley Suite is formed out of four bedrooms 50 – 53 and at 71.44 m2 is the largest suite in the company. The new scheme is a lighter cream and lime green and will turn this rather dated suite into a quite superb pair of interconnecting bedrooms. [pics of 50 & 51 right]

And finally…

…at the end of 2011, we go into the new year with the following gradings, awarded not by an inspector on one particular night, but by hundreds of our guests who each week complete reviews on our hotels for the three key hotel websites in the UK, namely: www.tripadvisor.comwww.booking.com and www.laterooms.com
