An extension to the Maple Glade at WLP has been planted, including some rare Acers from various nurseries around the country. This extension also opens up the views from bedrooms 82 and 83 in particular. [pic far right]
Special events at Beales Hotels to look forward to this month include:
Easter Sunday lunch at both WLP and BH
Easter Sunday afternoon tea at both hotels too.

Another financial year draws to a close with modest growth in sales at both hotels in a very tough market, a long way below the peak of 2007/8. However the hotels look terrific, we have incredibly high ratings, and we have purchased the WLP freehold for the benefit of all our guests and staff for generations to come. My thanks to all the wonderful teams who have worked so hard over the past year to look after our guests to such high and consistent standards.
