STAFF at Beechfield House Hotel in Beanacre are celebrating after an AA inspection saw their star-rating improve to four stars.

“It recognises their dedication, commitment to excellence and genuine desire to provide guests with an unforgettable stay.

“We have created elegant bedrooms, classic, stylish bathrooms and modernised facilities finished off to a very high standard with Blu-Ray DVD players, Smart TVs and luxurious bathroom products.”
