Good clean room even though it was not the most modern one I have stopped in, it was like stepping back in time but saying that it was very comfortable.

We had a lovely welcome and had a very enjoyable evening in the bar. I would recommend it highly.

Great hotel, great beers, great company!

Stayed on 23rd April (Wednesday).

On arrival, met by the owner William, who was very welcoming and knowledgeable about the history of the building. The quaint bar rooms and the gas lit public bar was like travelling back in time. During the evening, there were quite a few 'interesting' locals to chat to and have a bit of banter with. The jewel in the crown here was the vast selection of real ales (both hand -pulled and bottled), which appeared beautifully kept, and the ones I tasted (hic) were exceptional. The barman was chatty and knowledgeable about the beers and his recommendations certainly hit the spot. The single en-suite room I stayed in was clean and the bed comfortable, and as it was at the back, there was little noise or disturbance. Freeview TV and tea/coffee making facilities were also provided. I didn't have the cooked breakfast so can't comment on it. There is a large car park to the rear with plenty of spaces. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the town centre and there are numerous cafes and restaurants (especially excellent curry houses) in the vicinity. Overall, the place is full of character (and characters!), and for the price (£27 for the night I stayed), it was excellent value for money. If you want bland, characterless rooms and food, then stay at any one of numerous hotel chain properties (and pay double the price) - if you want a bit of banter, character, and an experience that would qualify for most peoples' bucket list - then a stay at The New Beehive is a must. Even if you don't stay at the hotel, just pop in for a couple of pints of real ale. It will be worth it. Would I go back and stay there again. In a heartbeat. Cheers!.

cheap week end stay

At this price you can not complain.

Friendly service and the breakfast was good. The asian restaurant next door is excellent.

Good value accommodation with lots of character

We were welcomed by a friendly member of staff and shown up to in a large room with some very interesting furniture, including a writing desk with lots of little cubby holes.

The bed was comfy and the overnight room temperature was just right. On the walls were a number of mirrors printed with images from early 20th century 'Vogue'. The only little niggles were the electric kettle, which needed a bit of wiggling to get it to sit properly on its base, and the shower, which we couldn't get to run very hot. We didn't mention this to the staff as we were only there one night and didn't happen to see anyone as we were leaving in the morning. Overall, a pleasant and interesting place to stay, with lots of character. I would certainly stay there again.
