Beverley is a remarkable architectural gem. . . where else could you hope to find such fabulous medieval treasures nearby such as St. Mary's, Beverley Minster or even one of the finest Georgian entrance halls in Yorkshire! Set in the centre of this gorgeous market town, right at the heart of the homeliness, BEST WESTERN The Lairgate Hotel prides itself on the considerable character created by both staff and building, and guests are treated to the highest standards at every turn. Recently enhanced by major refurbishment and extension work, the hotel now boasts a fine restaurant - The James Neil Room. The ambience of this softly lit air conditioned setting is as delicious as the food that's served within! A secluded patio area at the rear of the hotel provides an ideal suntrap (weather permitting), so after a day's shopping, umpteen 'must-see' sights and rolling countryside just moments away, it is a great place to spend some quality time with. . . well, anyone! Enjoy your stay. Maintenance work currently undergoing on the front hotel staircase.

    « Wonderful service »

    Stayed for a family party/reunion and yes the hotel is a bit dated, but the service more than compensated. Have stayed in 5* hotels and not received service anywhere near as good. From the moment we arrived until we left the staff were excellent and added the personal touch by making sure my Dad who suffers with Alzheimer's felt relaxed. We stayed in room 26 which was spacious and although the big metal bed is old the mattress was comfy. Great breakfast freshly made to order. If you like a plush modern hotel this isn't the place for you, but if you like friendly service and nice food then can recommend.

    « Stayed for one night and we were very happy »

    Having read some of the reviews we paid a little extra and booked an executive double. We found a beautiful clean and spacious room and had a very comfortable night. The room temperature was just right and breakfast, which was cooked to order, was absolutely fine. There is some major work being undertaken in the lobby, but that did not affect us at all. The staff were all very friendly and helpful.

    « Could not stay even though I had paid ! »

    I booked this hotel over the internet and pid up front. I was working in Hull and needed to stay over, I had always wanted to visit Beverley and I chose this hotel because of the good reviews on TripAdvisor and other sites. Either all the reviews I read are scams or I miss be living in an alternative universe. I cannot believe this hotel is part of the Best Western Group ; from the layers of dust on all flat surfaces, bro the scaffolding holding up the entrance hall, to the flickering light in my tiny, sad, dingy, grimy single bedroom - I just could not bear to stay. Just so you appreciate how bad it was - I left the hotel at about 7.30PM on a wet cold miserable November night with no idea where I was going to stay. It had been impossible to check out other places before living as there was no wi fi and no mobile phone coverage for voda at the hotel - I had actually waited for 20 minutes at reception before being served on arrival whilst the customer before me tried to pay over a wireless card reader which could get no signal. The receptionist gave up in the end ! Thank goodness there was just half a mile away a brand new, spotlessly clean Premier Inn with a massive comfortable king size bed and top quality sheets. I cannot imagine anyone wanting to stay at the Lairgate Hotel much less writing a decent review about it. You have been warned !!!

    « Lovely »

    Modern it isn't but this hotel was lovely. The staff were all excellent, I could not fault the room, I was upgraded and it was really a really nice room, or breakfast. The internet worked and the wine I had was really nice. The location is excellent.

    « Night out with Anne »

    Great stay at the hotel but the bed in room 26 could do with a new one. Thought whoever was upstairs sounded like they were in our room, suppose it's character of the place as it is old. The breakfast was outstanding so u won't be disappointed. Ideally situated to get to sat/wed market.

    « Very nice hotel with great service »

    Just spent 2 nights in this hotel as I was attending a wedding near by and it did exactly what it said on the tin - with a smile. I had a great cooked breakfast this morning as well! Would recommend :)

    « * Another Lovely Stay at The Lairgate! * »

    This was our second time stay at The Lairgate Hotel, and once again was not disappointed. Hubby, myself and our friends attended the Murder Mystery evening and it was excellent ! The Hotel has a small free car park but we have never found it difficult to get a space . We were welcomed by very friendly staff who throughout our stay couldn't do enough for us and made our weekend away memorable. I had requested the same large room we had last time( 32 ) and was pleased to have been allocated it ( now has a wonderful four poster bed!) It was spacious , very clean and extremely comfortable.Our friends had a similar large room two doors away The evening entertainment by Murder by Invitation was brilliant. The 3 course meal we had there was lovely , clean plates all round ! We had a very comfortable good nights sleep and rose early to take a walk round the lovely little market town that is Beverly. The Hotel is very central and convenient for sightseeing . Back to the Hotel for Breakfast which couldn't be faulted . An excellent array of continental pastries, fruits , cereals , jams , fruit juices etc was followed by a most superb full English breakfast , cooked to perfection. Plenty of hot tea and coffee accompanied and refills were offered if needed. Our waitress was lovely and friendly . Check out was easy and handled well by the same very friendly lady . Well done and a big Thankyou to everybody at The Lairgate who ( once again) made our stay very enjoyable. I would have no hesitation in recommending this lovely Hotel and definitely look forward to our next stay there .

    « Twilight zone »

    Visited the other day for an evening meal with my family and I hate to say but is absolutely awful. The food was old fashioned and looked awful when came out to table. In most restaurants would have sent it back but did not see the point as our waiter a tall skinny young lad had such an attitude and apparantly was an assistant manager he needs to learn that his job is customer service and the manager should be training people to make you feel welcome not that I am causing a problem asking for food. The food as I said was awful which was surprising as heard a chef I knew from the game bird had started and loved the sort of food served there. I must say food was out dated and tasted awful. With the amount of competition this premises needs to improve and modernise.

    « Family get together »

    The hotel is tucked away on Lairgate and the original house dates from I believe the 1700's. The hotel is well appointed and as a lovely warm comfortable feeling about it. The room was to say the least was large with a huge bathroom which my wife loved. You could not have asked for anything more from the staff they were welcoming and friendly nothing was too much trouble for them.. If I had one minor criticism the bar prices were a tad high but I 'm a Scotsman living in the Midlands. We stayed for a couple of nights and I must mention the full English breakfast, it was absolutely fabulous a real plateful. On our final evening for ease we chose to eat in the restaurant the food was reasonably priced and excellent. There was even the bonus of live entertainment after. An excellent hotel for anyone wanting to see the Minster and be in easy travelling distance for the coast and York. Would I stay there again yes most definitely.

    « Relaxing Weekend »

    The hotel is a good quality typical market town hotel. It is centrally located,spotlessly clean, has good bar and the staff are exceptionally pleasant and helpful. One reviewer complained about the furniture being old and not matching - they are called antiques!

    « Full of charm and character. »

    I stayed here whilst on a course at the Defence school of Driving at Leconfield. I stayed in room 15 which is on the top floor (third story).The room was quite large with two beds and pleasantly appointed with a 1930's feel to the room with the decor, curtains etc of that period although the facilities were modern. The Breakfasts there were spot-on with whatever you wanted to eat seeming to be no trouble at all for the chef. The waiting staff, the porter and receptionists were all very courteous and genuinely polite. The actual hotel itself is charming, looking to be several hundred years old in places meaning some of the stairs are a little creaky and narrow with a few creaky floorboards in the corridors but this sort of adds to the atmosphere of the place. If I'm honest, the only really negative points to this establishment is that the car park isn't really adequate, I struggled to park my car and that was a tiny Ford Fiesta, and people who are elderly, infirm or disabled might struggle with the stairs (it was forty steps to my room on the top floor). Otherwise I really liked the place.

    « Wedding reception and evening venue »

    What can I say about this place.. After our original wedding venue closed and went under, the Lairgate pulled out all the stops to accommodate us at their venue on the weekend we wanted , going as far to rearrange another event they had on. Tom, Rita and staff have been so accommodating for us in every aspect of our wedding at the Lairgate, nothing has been a problem. The venue was absolutely perfect, old fashioned with character, many different rooms and areas for guests to enjoy, mingle etc. The kids loved the layout of the place and exploring from room to riom. There was nothing bog standard, corporate or commercial about this hotel at all which is exactly what we wanted to avoid with our wedding. The rooms are magnificent, and we looked at many of them, again full of character and features, each room is totally unique very different from the each other. The food was absolutely terrific. The quality of which has been mentioned and commented on by almost all our guests that day. Very sensibly priced. I can't recommend this enough as a hotel or venue for anything - wedding, function, party or simply a stay over in Beverley. Thank you 10/10

    « Lovely stay with lovely staff »

    I Stayed here on a short trip to Beverley earlier this month. The staff were great and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. Food was lovely and the room had every thing I needed. Parking was free and convenient. 10/10. Will definitely be returning.

    « Dissappointed »

    Stayed here for a wedding, the room was really hot and noisy. The bathroom facilities were broken, not enough towels and not clean. Complained to the, hotel and basically was told that the couple who got married enjoyed it so what was our problem ? There was also scaffolding in the hallway !! Not impressed and feel they have let the name of best western down .

    « The most perfect wedding day »

    Tom, Rita and the team we would like to thank you so much for how special you made our wedding day. From the very beginning you were both there every time we we had a question or needed a meeting (and there were a lot of meetings - sorry!!) and we really needn't have worried. The decor inside the hotel is lovely and vintage anyway just how I like it but give you two a box of table decorations and you make the place look like a real fairytale. The day was rainy so we had most of our photos inside but that's not a drawback as they let us use the room with the little white piano and I'm really looking forward to seeing them. Maybe when we get them we'll pop in for a meeting ?? If you're looking for somewhere to have your wedding reception just go see these two. They'll be with you all the way through and are so attentive during the meal and I couldn't have asked for anything more wonderful than that for our day. (Rita, thanks for talking me into having a cake and things. I appreciate it now!!). Also, the blue honeymoon sweet is so pretty!! The whole hotel is quirky and period looking. Thank you again. Xxx

    « Musty rooms but good breakfast and staff »

    We went up to Beverley over the August Bank Holiday weekend to visit my aunt. The Premier Inn was full when we booked 3 months prior to our visit so we booked the Lairgate. The rooms were ok but the problem was the musty damp smell on the rooms on the top floor where we stayed - not healthy at all - my brother who stayed in the room down the corridor got a chest infection. The breakfast was good and staff very helpful. The rooms/bathrooms just need some urgent work doing.

    « Old Fashioned, But Very Pleasent »

    Despite being a tad old fashioned, the rooms are nice. They're equipped with a bath and shower, and each are a good size for the amount of beds in your room. It's the staff that make this place so amazing though. They are patient and polite, and very very friendly :)

    « Jaded and disappointing »

    The room we were given was up several narrow flights of stairs, with very sticky handrails. There was no shower, just an old bath. The bed wasn't particularly comfortable and the little sofa in the room had broken springs. The skylight was dirty inside and outside. We complained to the booking company, Hotels.com, but are still waiting for a response 2 months later.

    « old-fashioned comfort »

    old-fashioned comfort, attractive, clean décor. a short walk to the centre of the town. The mattress could have been a bit more comfortable but at least it wasn't that horrid foam material so many seem to be made from now. There were building works going on while I was there but clearly that's temporary. I would certainly come again.

    « Wedding reception & evening celebration! »

    From the first contact, right through to our wedding and departure.....everything and all the staff were brilliant! Special thanks to Rita and Tom, who we really enjoyed meeting and made our day a truly magnificent occasion! Their professional, yet friendly approach was just what we needed and they never failed to deliver. The food and service was excellent throughout, be it management, catering, bar staff....everyone! Brilliant! All were helpful, perceptive, adaptable...just everything we could have wished for on our special day. Nothing was too much trouble! Our room was divine (the honeymoon suite), tasteful, classy, traditional and a fantastic antique pine four poster. All the guests stated their enjoyment of the meal and later the buffet, with the service second to none. We are extremely appreciative and grateful that we made this choice!

    « Amazing from check in to check out »

    From the moment we arrived we were greated by the very pleasant staff. The hotel has a very relaxed aroma about it which made our stay all the better. Our room was very traditional and we'll presented. The food on offer was a selection of great choices and arrived swiftly and was very good. Compliments to the kitchen staff. All in all a great hotel in the centre of town. We will definitely be staying again

    « Disappointing »

    Great position, 3/4 minute walk to town centre. Booked exec' room ground floor due to disabilities, age (86) lovely big room with four poster bed BUT!!! dust, Bed supports which supported canopy were very dusty, had to wipe over the area that I held when supporting myself. Drawer unit that my wife used for her clothes was reasonably clean but large old Wardrobe that I used had drawers in that were dusty and the 2nd drawer down I had to put paper in before placing clothes in, also hinge at bottom of door was not attached plus other 3 hinges had screws missing. This room had not had a duster round it for ages plus plug hole in sink in bathroom was green with mould and once not been cleaned. Taps on sink were loose and required attention as did wardrobe. Breakfast buffet exceptionally good, everything in abundance, Cooked Breakfast and derivatives of great even to having Kippers on menu. Dinner very poor, we only ate once there in evening and it was served lukewarm with service poor although price reasonable. Hotel badly needed supervision in bedroom area and Restaurant in the evening. I do not think I would visit the Lairgate in the future which is very disappointing as it is great for town centre and disabled people able to access. Brian M brian.midgley1@ntlworld.com

    « Beautiful Quirky Hotel »

    I stayed at the Lairgate with my husband after our wedding and we returned again a year later for our 1st anniversary. We loved it both times. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are decorated and furnished in a lovely vintage style. The staff are really helpful and friendly and the facilities are of a high standard. Breakfast at the Lairgate is worth paying the extra for and if you plan on having an evening meal the restaurant is very good.

    « Expected better for a Best Western »

    Hotel is very central but as soon as you arrive, there are signs everywhere stating no smoking. All well and good except the first thing we saw was a member of staff hanging out of the door smoking. Not a good start. The car park was full. When we asked at reception whether the car park would empty later allowing us to park, we were told no, we would have to park elsewhere. When we explained that we chose that particular hotel because it had a car park, the guy just repeated that there was a car park nearby we could pay to park in. Again, when we explained that a weekend away is hardly relaxing if you have to look at watches and continually go and change car parking tickets, the guy did not seem to get it at all! The actual hotel is in an old building with lots of twists, turns and stairs to get to the rooms. There is no lift which was a little surprising as many of the guests looked older. The main staircase at the front of the house was cordoned off and had scaffolding all around it with bright warning tapes strewn all over but have no idea what was being mended / built / renovated. The overall feel of the hotel was a bit sad and maybe needed a bit of TLC. The room was large but had no real view to speak of - just some rooftops. There was nowhere to sit and write with a decent light source which can appreciate is not top of everyone list but the room did not seem to be well thought out. There was an eclectic mix of old furniture but none of the chairs were that comfortable meaning to sit and relax, you had to recline on the bed. There were little bottles of toiletries in the bathroom tho no shower gel. These were not replenished, nor was the beverage tray even for a two night stay which was a bit cheap. The beverage tray had only whole milk which is very curious in this day and age - who has whole milk nowadays? The chap looking after us at breakfast was lovely, He was friendly and efficient but the food, oh my, it was not good. Very cheap ingredients and swimming in grease. Usually look forward to a nice 'Full English Breakfast' whilst away but only had one on the first day and declined the second. The sausages were particularly fatty and tasteless. The towels in the room did not match and there were no finer points like a box of tissues in the room - not what I would have expected from a three star hotel. Will never return here.

    « Not enough staff »

    We were given two separate rooms as a twin was not available. The rooms were well appointed but very noisy as a result of people walking past. Breakfast was not very good, as the chef did not seem to know how to poach an egg properly There was decent parking but there was not enough staff to provide a prompt service.

    Everything about this hotel was wonderful, exept the scaffolding in the front eterance and the ignorant guy who checked us out and all but yelled the cost of the hotel after being asked to not say the price as I was trying to keep it secret form my partner (who now feels like they have to pay me back for some of it. Thanks.)

    « Quaint Georgian Hotel »

    We had an overnight stay here and found the hotel to be quite quirky with little sitting rooms and stairs which went up and down. Our rooms were decorated and furnished in keeping with the age and style of the property. Beds were comfy, rooms spacious enough and clean. Nice to have a bath as well as a shower although they were a little on the small size and plenty of towels. Well stocked hospitality tray and a walk-in wardrobe which was nice. Flat screen TV with plenty of channels. Our only complaints were that the rooms were overlooking the road and were very noisy. Where was everyone going to in the middle of the night? Breakfast next morning offered plenty of cereals, and yoghurts and juice. The cooked option was to order and nicely presented but the sausage were grey in colour and not very nice. We left ours and noticed that the people on the next table also left theirs. My daughter and I both ordered poached eggs but my daughter took the first taste and said it tasted strongly of vinegar. I hate vinegar so had to just eat the yolk and none of the white.The menu said there were pastries but there were none on the table so we just had toast. Well situated for visiting Beverley- just a very short stroll to the centre.

    « Our special day! »

    We chose to have our wedding reception here at the Lairgate hotel back at the end of July and we couldn't have picked a better place. From start to finish everything was perfect and the staff couldn't have done anymore to make it special for us. They made sure the running of the day went so smoothly for me and my husband and also our guests commented on how much they felt looked after and made to feel welcome to the hotel. The food was so delicious and so very well presented, the chef even made the food fun for the kids by turning the melon dish in to a smiley face ??. That extra touch! Most of our guests were staying overnight and next day at breakfast all they could talk about was how lovely the room was. We were in the honeymoon suite with a gorgeous four poster bed and the room was so spacious! I honestly could not fault anything about our day, the hotel or the staff. Definitely 5 star service, thank you to everyone involved.

    « Perfect location »

    Hotel room was wonderful, four poster bed and lots of space. Hotel location is right in the heart of Beverley, couldn't be better. Car park is small but there is a pay and display very close by. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful, would stay here again if in Beverley and the price was right.

    The internal layout is "interesting", the rooms are well sized, clean and comfortable with en-suite, tea/coffee facilities and Wi-Fi. The Staff are friendly and helpful, the food is good especially the afternoon cream teas (highly recommended and calorific). The hotel carpark is limited but within 50 metres is a reasonably priced alternative.

    « Comfortable Hotel »

    My wife and I stayed for couple of nights as we were at Beverly races. The hotel is comfortable and welcoming. It is more old style traditional and lounge areas that are ideal to sit and chat and relax. The bar area is good and the staff were efficient and chatty. The standard room was adequate for our needs and the bed was comfortable. Unfortunately there is no lift so stairs to rooms may be difficult for some.We would definitely return.

    « Tardis »

    Nice little, but bigger on the inside hotel. The room I stayed in was a little shabby, but not too bad, and it is worth pointing out they were having some redecoration work ongoing at the time. From the outside you would be fooled into thinking this is a small hotel, and I suppose it is really, but once inside it does open up somewhat. The staff were great, the bar is 24 hours, the location is ideal. Would certainly stay again.

    « do not stay in room 34! »

    £72 for a double room. Small car park which was full but there is a nearby car park for £5.50 all day parking. Hotel was larger inside than it looked from outside with a little courtyard which was nice. We originally had room 34, however, did ask to be moved which wasn't a problem-thankfully. We couldn't have slept in this room. Characteristic and vintage is one thing but this must have been an original when the place was built. It smelled and was extremely dark and eerie. The breakfast looked nice but obviously cheap quality ingredients as the taste reflected. A couple of the staff let the place down which was a shame but the rest were lovely. Wouldn't stay here again. Great location though.

    We arrived very late looking for suitable accommodation in Beverley during the weekend. The night staff were very helpful and found us a room. We were provided with an old- fashioned, basic but perfectly adequate, quiet double room for our over night stay. Centrally placed in Beverely. Reasonably priced for a BW hotel in a beautiful East Ridings town.

    This is a charming and quirky hotel, with excellent staff, centrally located in Beverley. If you want the modern place that is polished, this is not for you. If you want English charm with a comfortable feeling like you are at home, check in here. It is not good for anyone with mobility disabilities however.

    Stayed for the weekend whilst at the local races - superb location straight in the heart of town . Parking available at rear - good efficient check in - standard room adequate bathroom coffee facilities in room - good breakfast to choose - friendly service and nice coffee - not the cheapest place you will find for a weekend stay but suppose typical supply n demand

    Short notice online booking via their website. Far cheaper than on Booking.com and Laterooms. Took a single ensuite plus breakfast, worth every penny. Lovely room, shower and big bath which I really enjoyed. Really comfy bed and super quick Wifi. Good telly and tea making. Breakfast was terrific. Spacious dining room, loads of fresh juice, fruit, yoghurt, cereal etc. Good menu, full english was freshly cooked and deliciously substantial. All the staff were great.

Only downside of hotel was the noisy air con unit outside the kitchen which woke us very early every day.

    The room decor in particular was a bit tired but the bed was reasonably comfortable. The bathroom needs renewing to bring up to date. All staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

    from the moment we arrived the hotel staff couldn't do enough for us. You go to a lot of hotels and the staff are like robots "not at the lairgate hotel" They made us feel at home we felt we could chat to them like they where friends of ours. The room we had was so clean the facilities where great and the breakfast we had was 110%. We also decided to eat there on the evening could not fault the food one bit. We met Tom the manager who introduced us to front of house staff "Kev, karren, and steve who all really look like that they are happy to work there.

    My husband and I had booked into The Kings Head Inn across the way, but they had lost our booking (despite sending a confirmation in September 2015). So this hotel, were able to book us in at the last minute. Unfortunately, it is a little tired and dated for our taste and felt more like an older person's resident, but clean. The staff were very lovely too. We didn't eat here, even though breakfast was included as we had to leave early.

    Booked very last minute after being let down by the closure of the Beverley Arms Hotel. Very friendly staff, old but well kept building. Our room was very spacious and comfortable, if a little on the warm side. Best full English breakfast we have had in a very long time. Would definitely go back.

    just off the main street in Beverley, this has been a prestigious hotel in its time, but now a little frayed about the edges. The staff were realy very friendly and helpful. The little desk clerk help`d carry our case up the stairs for us. As the stairs were rather steep, and there was no lift. The room was quite pleasant, overlooking the patio. And tended to be rather noisy until the bar ajoining the patio closed. it was a quite warm, and we had to have the windows open to let some air into the room.so this also made it rather noisy.

    « Really nice hotel »

    Surprisingly this hotel is only a 3-star. It easily outperforms many four-star hotels. There is a very homely feel about this hotel, and a welcome change from the modern grey rooms found in most chains. Staff are especially friendly and welcoming. I was here on business, and my wife accompanied me. She had plenty to see and do within walking distance of this town center hotel.

    « Stunnning Room and then Disappointment »

    We were all ready for a lovely weekend. the problem started when we arrived. We were told we would have parking. the car park was full and had to wait for someone to leave. Not the end of the world as we had time. We were shown to our room which looked stunning. It was clean and a lovely four poster bed. Now bearing in mind I am small. even the bath was too small for me and my husband had a shower before we went out and the water was cold. After a very enjoyable night out with friends we were in need of a good breakfast. I love my kippers so ordered them... Don't bother. The were overcooked fillets that had either been pre-frozen or boil in the bag, then fried. When we left, my husband explained about the shower and he was told he should have run it for longer! We won't be going there again.,

    I cannot thank the staff at the Lairgate Hotel enough for their kind hospitality. We (the NHS) ran a group for people with dementia and the Lairgate allowed us to use their beautiful room free of charge and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The were extremely supportive and kind to our clients and now the group members continue to meet here at this wonderful hotel every week! The rooms are very relaxing and comfortable, with lots of charm and a welcoming atmosphere. The food is lovely and great prices, and the staff are just so lovely and helpful. We need more people like you! I hope we can work again with you in the future. This is what partnership working is all about! Kind regards, Rosie

    « Central & comfortable. »

    The downside first: the hotel has a very small car park. There is a pay & display car park in the same street, but (& maybe it's just me) I never like leaving the car overnight in these (it was, naturally, fine). The hotel itself is excellently located, a few minutes walk from the main street, in a very quiet spot, so it's handy for pubs, restaurants and attractions. The room was large, with a very comfortable 4-poster bed. The TV was probably a bit small, but we didn't watch it anyway. Staff were friendly, breakfast was good and substantial.

    « Nice old hotel near to town centre »

    It's a nice old fashioned hotel close to the town centre. The hotel is clean with friendly staff. Our room was a bit wonky due to the age old the building. It was nicely furnished and had freeview tv. They gave us a heater as the radiators weren't working. We didn't have hot water one day but they fixed that. The afternoon tea was perfect. Loads of choice and nicely presented. The breakfast was served to order and very nice. They could do with a lift as we found the stairs difficult with a suitcase. You go out of the front door, across the road and down a short alley and are in the town centre. The car park is tight to say the least. When we arrived someone was coming out and we took their space, the same happened when we came out, someone was waiting for our space. You have to reverse into the road as there isn't room to turn round. We enjoyed our stay and will stay there again.

    The Lairgate Hotel were kind enough to allow us (The NHS) to use one of their beautiful rooms to run a group for older adults who have been diagnosed with dementia. The staff were kind, compassionate and helpful. They provided regular refreshments, looked after our clients and were able to assist us in the arrangements for our group's needs. Many of our group attended the hotel for lunch prior to our activities starting. They all commented on how lovely the food was and how excellent the service was. Many of them have agreed to continue to meet up at this venue. The hotel was quiet and in an ideal location close to the centre of Beverley. There were plenty of facilities and areas to relax in. The rooms were traditionally furnished and the whole hotel had a warm and welcoming atmosphere. I cannot thank Lairgate hotel enough for their kindness in allowing us to use their facilities. Our client feedback indicated that they all felt comfortable and looked after. They all reported they enjoyed visiting the hotel ? as did we!

    « A Very Enjoyable Stay »

    This was our first stay at The Lairgate Hotel, although my wife and I have been to Beverley on several occasions and failed to notice it... despite it's central location. As it was market day, we had some difficulty in navigating our way to the hotel, so my first recommendation is to locate the hotel on an online map, then use Google Street View to rehearse your route. We arrived in the car park which is small but useful and free, and entered from the hotel's rear entrance. We were directed to our room, a double which overlooked the car park, and were immediately struck by the quaint stairway to our floor, which might prove tricky to anyone elderly or infirm, but not impossible. Our room was spacious, comfortable, warm and quiet. The bathroom had a bath with shower, and was well lit with a large window (with frosted glass). Many hotels these days seem to favour downlighters that only light a pool beneath them leaving you combing your hair in the shadows. We had a drink in the bar, and while the furnishings looked well used, they were clean and comfortable, and did not look out of place with the bar decor. Later in the evening when we returned from a walk, other guests commented about the comfort of the settees, and the service from the staff I mentioned that we arrived on market day, and The Lairgate could hardly be closer to the town centre, just a (one way) street away from the market place, and connected by a small passageway between the two, quaintly named "Narrow Racket".. narrow enough to be missed! Remember Street View is great for planning your visit. The Lairgate is not a modern boutique hotel, and while it could benefit from a repaint and fine tune - that could also destroy some of the character, and quaintness of the building and may also lead to higher prices, so my opinion should be viewed in the light of the price paid and overall satisfaction. My view is that we were sleeping in the room, not living in it, and it was better than adequate, and great value. The WiFi was great, both in our room, and in the bar, and was totally free. If you want a sterile clone hotel, at a budget price, stick to Premier Inns or Travelodge. The staff were helpful and polite on every encounter, and well dressed. We were the first ones down for breakfast on Sunday morning, and were attended to right away with tea and toast while our breakfast order was processed.. all of which was delicious.

    « Great staff but rooms need updating »

    We stayed on 12th March following a function. All the staff were helpful and very keen to offer good service but our room dated back to the 70's! We couldn't decide whether the pattern on the wallpaper was dandelions or marijuana leaves but it was quite bizarre. Our room had bubblegum pink bedding, deep red dralon chairs, a very old, squeeky and uncomfortable mattress, a large pattern shade standard lamp and nothing in the room matched! The decor and furnishings in our room resembled a dodgy old folks home. Indeed one of our friends who also stayed commented that his 93 year old grandma had many of the same furnishings as he had in his room. We appreciate the hotel is very old and that is part of its charm but all the same, the rooms are well overdue an update. The bar area is nice and we wouldn't rule out staying there again but there is definitely room for improvement.

    « Nice rooms Shame about the food »

    Attended as part of a large group. Starters were ok - main course was terrible though. Dry over cooked. One small dish of Veg for the whole table that too was cooked to within a inch of its life. Took ages to fetch more when we complained. By that time the meat was cold. Breakfast the next day was better. But expect much better for the prices they are charging. Staff were helpful and tried hard. But the meal really put us off.

    « Warm comfortable hotel, great murder mystery night. »

    We stayed at the Lairgate at the end of February 2016. We were attending a Murder Mystery night event, purchased through Groupon. The hotel was warm and comfortable and the staff friendly. We enjoyed the food, which was hot and tasty and the portions were very generous. The Murder Mystery itself was great, with a strong cast of actors. It was a play within in play...a real mystery. Unfortunately there were a small number of guests who sought to make trouble and ruin the evening for everyone by disrupting the play and making a nuisance of themselves. The veracity of any review they might leave should be considered alongside the knowledge of the arrest of some of their number and the ejection of their entire group from the hotel. Well done to the wonderful hotel staff and actors for saving this night from disaster and keeping us all laughing.

    « Groupon Halloween Murder Mystery night »

    Sad reflection of a Groupon deal. I received a lovely Christmas deal to attend a murder mystery at the Lairgate Beverley from my partner. We arrived I. Good time, some of the participants came in Halloween fancy dress and were excited at the prospect of a good whodunit. We sat down to find a plastic cover with evidence 1 written on the front of it. There was no direction from the cast of what to do. It turned out that the evening was geared around the promotion of the company running the night. The murder mystery clues where poor, and little information came from the actors. Now for the meal, as it was a whodunit with dinner.. The starter was orange duck pate with bread n bit of salad. Not to bad me thinks until the main meal. Bearing in mind we were sat on a table of eight strangers. we all received a meat pie dish with three roast potatoes. The plate and gravy was cold, and two couples at our table found blonde hair in their meals. One couple complained their meal was cold four times , duly the staff took their meals away and retuned them with extra gravy to try and warm the food! We could tell the food had been microwaved by the burnt gravy stain on the dinner plate. We got a tiny plate of veg ended up share between 10! By the time we had divvied the veg up there was nowt left when it came to us and no offer of more. All the participants on our table left the room and made a formal complaint to the manager. He told us to make a complaint to Groupon but made no offer of reckon pence for the poor service or meal. The sad fact was that I am local to the area and was hoped for a great night especially when a lot of people had travelled from far and wide just to spend time in Beverley. I have previously attended two wedding receptions at the Lairgate which were great. However, the Murder Mystery night was rubbish ! How sad as there was over 120 people present with a potential of future business. This is a sad reflection of poor business management trying to do things on the cheap when drinks were expensive!

    This is a must for anyone visiting Beverly for a few days. The staff are friendly cheerful and always ready to help. The hotel is spotless and is ideally placed so that once you have parked it is only a very short walk to the town centre. We had an afternoon tea on the Saturday that could only be described as superb we thought that it was meant for three there was so much we certainly had nothing else to eat that day. Be advised that if you have trouble with steps there are some ground floor rooms available but you must book these in advance. I would definitely book this hotel again and have no problems reccomending it.

    « Really really nice hotel »

    We only stayed 1 night and we wished we could have stayed longer. We stayed in room 1 which had a lovely 4 poster bed and this was so comfortable. The room was huge with a really large bathroom as well. The staff were really friendly. It is situated right in the middle of Beverley but we had no noise. Yes the place has a bit of an air of faided grandure but we only paid £68 for B&B. The breakfast spread was great but my only comment was the cooked breakfast which was poor really but for the money I am not complaining.

    « Murder mystery night »

    Excellent night, we didn't know what to expect really as we had never been to one of these nights before and didn't have a clue how it was going to be run. all guests were seated on round tables that fit 10 people, wasn't to sure about this at the start but we got a great table with really nice people on it some who were quite local and others staying at the hotel. the meal was served as the cast walked around the room acting out the murder mystery night while each wandering to each table where they had a chat with us (in character) and gave away various clues, it lasted till about 10.30pm where you then fill in a sheet saying who you think had done it and why. Really well organised and bar open till late afterwards. Hotel was lovely, very character filled and fitted in well with the Miss Marple type night. same for our room (1) which had big 4 poster bed and many nice features and spotlessly clean. the staff were very friendly and helpful.

    « Very Dated Back to the 80's »

    Stayed for one night in early February for a winter break. There is a small car park which was good and the location is excellent just off the market place. Very friendly member of staff checked us in and showed us the room. The room was very dated and very "green" from the wallpaper to the towels in the bathroom. The bed was very low and very soft and only two pillows. The TV was in an awkward position to the right of the bed which made it difficult to watch. It would be better positioned directly opposite the bed between the two windows. But it is a period building so this may not have been possible. On the plus side it was clean and the bathroom was fine. Shame about the shower curtain rather than a screen as this usually means a fight with the curtain trying to cling to you. But for one night we were fine. Breakfast was really good the next morning with the cooked breakfast cooked to order along with toast/coffee. The only gripe would be the cereal was in large bowls left uncovered which put us off having cereal to start with. Overall the stay was ok and we would stay again but perhaps ask if there was an updated room.

    « Friendly helpful staff and surprisingly good food »

    My partner and two friends booked the hotel for a murder mystery event. Despite the hotel being full, the staff without exceoption were friendly, helpful and cheerful. The package included a 3 course meal and breakfast - both of which were excellent - both in terms of value and quality. Despite only paying the set amount our room was a revelation - with Chinese carpets, a four poster and a chaise longue, good selection of teas, coffees and quality toiletries. The bath towels really were - and plentiful. The only drawback was parking. The hotel - being right in the middle of Beverley has limited parking, and the on-street parking regulations were very obscure. However, there is a pay for car park 30 yards from the hotel - but if you are not used to Beverley - you can end up driving round a long loop in the one way system. Best advice? Trust your sat nav. We had a great time and would recommend both the hotel and the Murder Myster events.

    « Inconsistent but friendly »

    We stayed at the lairgate for a long weekend at the end of October 2015. The hotel went the extra mile and got my family and I into one large room in the annex. The room itself had comfortable beds and was clean but the bathroom needed work - the shower rail could hold one towel and we were 5 (2 adults, 3 kids - 12,10,3) and the shower curtain was inadequate. The shower rail was also coming off the wall which was a little dangerous. Nevertheless the room was fine and not too cramped even with an extra bed. A big thanks. At night however the room was noisy with creaky floorboards from the room above. The people in this room were early risers getting up around 6.00 am. You really had a lot of banging and creaking which is hugely irritating. The hotel itself in the main building is very nice. A Georgian mansion really. However the levels of service and general quality is friendly rather than professional. Breakfast was very average. We ordered boiled eggs and soldiers for my daughter on one day and the eggs came back hard boiled. The next day she ordered poached eggs and she got one egg not two as the chef had miscounted! To be fair the guy offered to bring an extra egg later but by that time it was too late. No water bottles anywhere either in the rooms or at breakfast - just sugary drinks. I'm currently listening to the sounds of the room above showering. Not great. There is a car park which is helpful and if you are in the annexe you are part of.

    17th of October found us going to the wedding reception of my niece at the hotel. The manager had provided us with a parking space as we needed access to the car throughout the afternoon. When entering the establishment it was obvious that the place was clean, tidy and cheerful. The bar was small but was run efficiently. There was not a great choice of beers and lagers but there were sufficient and they stocked non-alcoholic lager in bottles.There were no real ales but then such a small establishment would have had a deal of wastage as they need a good turnover. The food for the afternoon was a buffet which was very pleasantly presented and the food was of a very good standard and there was plenty of it. As we didn't stay overnight I cannot comment on the rooms or other facilities. However if the standard of them lives up to my short experience, they will be of a good standard.

We were on the top floor and it was lovely and quiet. The room was also large with a large tv and the usual tea coffee making items. We went for a walk in the town of Beverley, which is one minute away and was very enjoyable. We then had high tea in the hotel, This was very good indeed both in the way it was presented, and the quality and quantity. We had a very quiet night in our bedroom, and slept well. Breakfast was very good, and was most enjoyable, the one waiter worked very hard and nobody appeared to have to wait long for their food. All things considered this was a lovely experience and I would happily stay again.

    « Friendly Staff, clean but inconsistent rooms. »

    Stayed here for work with a colleague. Hotel was cleaned and obviously looked after. The staff were friendly. Breakfast was painfully slow and not one of the people around me had gotten what they had ordered. Rooms are functional but tired (chairs evidently very old but not in the antique way). With two rooms booked a day apart two very different rooms were obtained. One very large well appointed and comfortable room and one tired cramped and unwelcoming room(mine).

    « Our wedding reception »

    We had a faultless experience from the the first moment we walked in to The Lairgate hotel when we started looking for reception venues. The hotel is lovely with real old world charm and class, the staff were welcoming friendly and helpful, our room was delightful, the buffet was excellent as were our breakfasts. We would both recommend The Lairgate for any function or as a fantastic place to stay right in the centre of Beverley we could not of chosen a better venue.

    « High Praise For Staff service »

    We booked in to the Best Western on Lairgate Beverley for two nights for our annual visit to the races. This is the first time we have stayed in this hotel, the car park is only small but there is a pay and display nearby. The rooms are clean and tidy and very quiet and the bar area and dining room are both comfortable. What makes this hotel stand out is the staff!! It is not often you can say that about an establishment, you can compliment it and praise the staff accordingly but here they were pleasant and always smiling, they were attentive and would do anything for you they made the difference between a Good hotel and a Very good hotel. For the price as well you cannot go wrong, we will definitely be back next year.

    « Poor service and shabby rooms »

    We stayed here for the weekend visiting friends. We couldn't find anyone on reception so had to wait for the staff to turn up. Shown to our room in the old side of the hotel. Very dated and worn. Terrible mattress and grubby room. Management didn't want to know. They have no idea how to run this hotel and don't want anyone to tell them otherwise. I would never stay here again.

    « Afternoon tea anyone? »

    Old world charm in the heart of historic and charming Beverley. The tea started with a glass of something bubbly and alcoholic, with strawberries! Finger sandwiches : egg, tuna, cheese, ham and slice of quiche- yummy! small meringues, choc brownies and choc sponges. Followed by scones with jam and cream. Tea or coffee in plentiful supply throughout. Staff as charming as the surroundings! PG TIPS cuppa club doing an offer 2 for 1 at the moment so it was £4.50 each - ridiculous! The offer finishes soon though and you need to collect points. Still great value at full price.
