This fabulous boutique hotel opens in Beverley following a two-year restoration project.
The Beverley Arms was once Beverley’s flagship coaching inn. It has been welcoming guests since the 17th century. Now Thwaites has put it back in in its rightful place in the heart of this thriving East Riding market town. Over £6m has been spent turning the historic building into a stylish place to eat, drink and stay with striking interior design and entertaining spaces.
It now boasts 38 bedrooms, a 68-seat restaurant bathed in natural light, 2 private dining/meeting rooms, a modern bar and an outdoor courtyard.
Operations Director at Thwaites, Steve Martin, said: “The transformation has been extraordinary - from the moment you walk in through the doors you know you are somewhere special. Every time I go in I spot new things in the design; it’s really stunning and well thought through."
Thwaites has been careful to retain as many original features as possible, as it does with so many of its restoration schemes. Later additions to the building have gone so the building is back to its original shape and size. Local artist Fred Elwell painted pictures of the Beverley Arms’ 100 years ago, including one of the kitchen showing arches which are now a feature in a
new private dining room - do go and seek them out! Thwaites prides itself on having characterful properties in its portfolio.
This is Thwaites’ first property in Beverley. A new team has been recruited, led by local General Manager Chantell Dickinson-Clark, who grew up and lives in Beverley and 70 new members of staff are in position! The hotel is planning celebration events throughout August so as many people as possible can visit the transformed building and meet the new team.
Chantell Dickinson-Clark said: “There’s so much love for The Beverley Arms - we have been overwhelmed by the interest and messages of support. We have had lots of excited people asking how things are going, wanting to know when they could see what’s happening inside - well, now they can!
It’s been a labour of love. It’s taken a long time to complete the work but Thwaites wanted to get it right. The Beverley Arms has been part of the town for over 300 years and we want to make sure we have a boutique hotel and building that we can be proud of for the next 300 years.”
