    Dear Mr Beale,

    I am just writing to you as my girlfriend and I wanted to highly commend your staff at the Beales Hotel in Hatfield. Whether working on reception, the restaurant or housekeeping, they are fantastic advocates for the Beales hotel brand!

    We usually tend just to dine at the OutsideIn Restaurant, but have on occasions taken advantage of the dinner, bed and breakfast internet offers, even though we live locally as it is such a pleasant experience!

    Sumi Saranachchi and his staff deserve a special mention. In particular, Sumi’s attention to detail is and very personable style is second to none. In fact, when we dine, we now feel we are in the company of friends which is something we really appreciate! Please also pass on our thanks to Alex Hendon who is also fantastic although was on duty the last few times we visited.

    The food is fantastic - quite simply the best in the area! It was great to meet Diego recently too!

    Finally, I would just make a few minor comments, which may help to make it even better. Firstly, I think the chairs and furniture in the restaurant seem to be becoming a little tired now, but I believe from your comments on Tripadvisor that new furniture has been ordered anyway.

    The only other thing is the temperature of the rooms we have stayed in on the ground floor was very warm and did actually prevent a really restful night’s sleep. Premier Inn seem to get this absolutely right, but am not sure if anything can be done about this? If ever you require a couple of “guinea pigs” to test newly refurbished rooms then do let me know!

    Overall though, things at the hotel are fantastic!

    Yours sincerely,

    Robert White

    P.S. I would be interested to know what the relaxing music is you use in the restaurant as it would be great to buy!

    To the staff at Beales Hotel,

    I stayed at the hotel on Saturday 13 December 2014 and attended the Xmas party night with 11 friends. The food was excellent, so thanks to the kitchen team - I'd love the recipe for the dark chocolate parfait!

    Staff were attentive and accommodating, especially the reception staff both Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.

    The bedroom was lovely - very clean and comfortable.

    Thank you for a great weekend.

    Kind regards

    Re: Hertfordshire Young Farmers Club - Annual Ball

    Dear Andrew, As President of the Young Farmers I am writing to say how much everyone had enjoyed there Ball at Beales Hotel on Sat. night. The staff were excellent and coped with 212 in the dining room, it was very cosy . We appreciated your kind offer of the four complimentary rooms, which were used by the organizing committee that was really good as we didn’t need to drive home. Also your donation of a room towards the auction which raised much needed funds for next years programme. We had guests from as far afield as Northants, Beds. and Essex and we hope this generates future business for the hotel. We hope we can use your facilities again. And again many many thanks for all your help.

    Regards Stewart Hunter

    Dear Andrew

    First, a big thank for all the effort both you and your staff made last Friday – not forgetting Emma – the best raffle ticket seller in the business!

    It was a super evening – not a single complaint! A record!

    Next year I have booked the same date October 9th. I have also spoken to Jane and she confirms you have no concert on that date so will be able to come again. I think it does make a difference!

    Again, many thanks for your usual generosity.

    Yours sincerely,

    Hi Lyndsey,

    I hope that you had a great weekend!

    Thank you very much for all of your help with organising our Christmas Party on Friday evening – the event was a complete success and we have had so much good feedback. I am really pleased. The magician was excellent as was the caricaturist.

    I counted around 20 spare seats when dinner was being served – it may not be possible, but is there any way that your chef can advise how many meals were left? It will just give us an idea of numbers. Also, please can you send me the final invoice and I will arrange payment for you ASAP.

    Thanks again!

    Enjoyable Stay on Saturday 27th September

    Dear Mr Hall

    I just wanted to thank your staff for the lovely overnight stay I had on the above date. My partner and I previously stayed in your hotel last year and decided to return for his birthday. He then decided to propose over our 3 course dinner. The waitress told the chef what happened and he immediately sent his congratulations in my desert. I was touched. Please thank the waitress who made this a memorable evening for me.

    Word spread around the hotel as when we were checking out, the receptionist offered her congratulations.

    Thank you to all your staff. I look forward to my next stay

    Kind regards

    Hello Scott,

    Thank you very much for this delicious recipe.

    The food at the Moody wedding was absolutely fabulous.

    Please congratulate your entire staff for me.

    I must say, the mushroom pate was particularly sublime and I shall be trying to make it myself.

    I should be grateful if you would pass on my thanks to the hotel staff as well. They were excellent.

    Thanks once again, Kind regards,

    Dear Patsy

    The wedding was fantastic, it was everything I wished for and more. Alex came to wish me good luck just before I left which was very nice. He also attended to all our many requests for the day including instruments placed in a safe place for 2 of our guests and also all the other duties with the cake and annoucning speeches.

    I will be sending you a thank you card because your planning was all I asked for and we were very pleased with all what you did for us. Our guests enjoyed the food and drink. I hope Alex enjoyed the African singing group?

    We are very happy and we had such a wonderful day. Our room was smartly dresed and also cake placed very well, so thank you to all the team at Beales.

    With thanks,

    Mr and Mrs Quarrell.

    We were married at Beales Hotel, Hatfield on 5 July and felt the huge success of the day was in part due to the fantastic support provided by all those staff involved at the hotel. On our initial visit to the hotel, we were shown around by Sumi. He was most helpful, informative and extremely professional in the way he treated us.

    Thereafter, we met with Lyndsey Crouch, our wedding organiser on several occasions leading up to our wedding. She was most professional, friendly and constructive in terms of the planning and organisation involved in the wedding arrangements. Lyndsey also allowed us the flexibility we wanted to appoint our own florist, photographer, musician, etc. At the penultimate meeting with Lyndsey, we were joined by Alex the duty manager who assured us that all the necessary preparation would be in place for our wedding event. Needless to say, the whole occasion went incredible well. A big thanks from us to all those staff who waited upon us at the wedding breakfast - the food and service was excellent as was the accommodation. Thanks also to Alex and Theo for the way in which the bar was managed during the evening and the manner in which they treated us. This was Lyndsey’s first wedding which she organised upon joining the hotel and she did it to perfection. A special thanks to her.

    We look forward to visiting the hotel again sometime in the future.

    With best wishes

    Dear Mr Hall

    Rice/Stavrou wedding – 19 July 2014

    I write as the Mother of the Bride and organiser of Jennie and Nasi’s Wedding last Saturday.

    The Bride and Groom, and all our guests, had an absolutely fabulous day and Beales made a very significant contribution to our enjoyment.

    Lyndsey handled the advance planning superbly and with genuine interest not only in our stated, and late, additional needs and aspirations, but in creating the special day that it was. The Buckland Suite, dressed for the occasion, was beautiful and attracted so many favourable comments, but it was also very functional and coped well with the demands of speeches, a live band and some very energetic Greek dancing by both genders.

    Alex’s management of the day itself was smooth and seamless, despite us being over an hour late from the church for reasons entirely beyond our control. The meal was excellent, as we knew it would be, the serving boys and girls were very efficient and in these days were particularly pleased to see that there were enough of them.

    Those of us who stayed at the hotel overnight were very happy with the accommodation, the service and the breakfast arrangements and quality. Even the bride requesting a non-feather pillow and duvet at 2 am was met with calm and efficiency!

    Many of our guests have commented to us how impressed they were with Beales’ overall performance and let us all hope it leads to repeat business: you deserve it. Well done!

    Without a doubt Lyndsey and Alex deserve much credit for making our reception so successful. At all times they were professional, extremely helpful and friendly and a joy to ‘work’ with.

    My sincere thanks,

    Yours sincerely,

    C French (Mrs)
