    Hi Lyndsey,

    We've just about recovered thanks, we're away in the new forest now in a lovely log cabin with hot tub so that's helping!

    Thank you so much for everything, the day went without a hitch and everything ran so smoothly! We were so impressed with the way everything was organised, we really were.

    Special thanks to you and also to Mark on the day as he was fantastic and couldn't have done any more to make the day special for us. Please thank him from us as he really was amazing. Big thanks to Karla as well for all her help on the day.

    It was a pleasure working with you too and we'll be sure to provide very positive reviews as we had the best day ever and everyone at the hotel were so kind and accommodating to us and our guests.

    Hopefully we'll get to work with you again in the future.

    Many thanks

    Arran & Paul

    Good morning,

    I just wanted to thank you for your support on this event.

    The venue were very supportive and all the last minute requests were actioned in readiness for the Thursday.

    (When I arrived Wednesday, the additional equipment was sourced; the rearrangement of the room; the arrangements regarding how we would work the timings now on the opening and closing of the partitions etc)

    Please could you let all concerned know how ‘brilliant and supportive’ the staff at The Beales hotel were.

    Nothing was too much trouble.

    At no point did I ever experience a problem finding Jake or Clara.

    Refreshments / lunch were all super and in abundance.

    It was a real pleasure to work with this team - everything I needed / wanted was actioned quickly, quietly, efficiently and with lovely smiles and such ‘willing attitudes’.

    Huge thanks to all involved

    Kind regards,

    Julie Windows

    Just to say thank you for the great service that we had whilst staying with you last night.

    The service was very good and the food beyond what we had expected.

    Marc - I love your sense of humour.

    Look forward to coming back.

    Dear Lyndsey,

    Marjorie and I write to thank you personally and Beales Hotel in general for the excellent service you provided for our Golden Wedding Anniversary Celebration last Saturday.

    Thank you for being so friendly and helpful in the planning of the event, for your understanding when problems arose, and for following up after the event.

    The room was ideal, the food just right in quality and quantity, and the service provided egregious. All of our 64 guests were full of praise for the setting, meal, and its accompaniments.

    Outstanding were your attention to detail e.g. the gap between chairs for our wheelchair guest, and the timeous and seamless service of a three course meal with drinks and coffee unobtrusively and without mishap. Cutting up and serving a large iced fruit cake was also performed with exemplary efficiency.

    We were also extremely impressed by Karla’s and Mark’s control and management of the event.

    Overall it was a grand day made perfect by being able to relax overnight in the executive room which was part of the package.

    We would have no hesitation in recommending your hotel as the venue for such an event to any other prospective customers.

    We hope to see you all again soon.

    Yours sincerely,

    Marjorie and Mark Slater

    Dear Andrew,

    I have just returned from your Hatfield hotel after holding my sister's wedding there on 1st August.

    I wanted to take the time to fill you in on our experience we had.

    From the very first day of being shown around by Lyndsey, the service has been impeccable. It has not faltered once throughout the numerous visits to the special day itself. Lyndsey herself had been incredible and guided us every step of the way and been very supportive.

    My sister and I stayed at the hotel the night before to set up and had superb service from Carla and Sumi. Nothing was too much trouble and they were constantly making sure we had everything we needed and if there was anything that they could do to help. They kept us informed of when they were leaving and who would be around to help instead (a lovely touch).

    The waiting staff were very polite and unobtrusive and made the dining a pleasure- which leads me on to the food itself! Nothing short of spectacular. Thank you to chef and his kitchen crew whom I'm guessing often get forgotten in a thank you. Everyone at the wedding breakfast thoroughly enjoyed their meals.

    Marc was an amazing host! He ran the whole event faultlessly! We had to worry about nothing and he steered the ship perfectly to give my sister the wedding that she deserved.

    You have an absolutely invaluable team at The Beales Hotel and I will definitely be recommending this venue all over for every occasion.

    I'm certainly thinking of our next family get together at your hotel in the not so distant future.

    Thank you so very much for all your teams support, kindness and most of all a hassle free most enjoyable time!!

    Kind regards Natasha Meddeman

    Dear Patsy

    You beat me to it!

    I wanted to write and thank you and all the staff for making a truly memorable amazing night for all of us. Josh had the time of his life. The room looked great, food delicious and staff so lovely from reception, to waiters and waitresses, and Marc and all the hotel staff did a fantastic job. We had to re dress the kids table as a couple of children dropped out and Marc made it all very easy. I’ve had lots of compliments from the guests. Please do pass on our thanks and appreciation for all their hard work.

    Sorry I drove you so nuts in the last week with many hundreds of emails!

    Kind regards

    RE: WHCA event: Jane Lowe replying on behalf of Jonny Ball

    Hi Lyndsey,

    Many thanks for your message. I’m just replying from Jonny’s WHCA email address to say that Jonny has now left us to move on to other employment in London. We are very sorry to see him go because he has been a very popular member of the team and we shall miss him.

    We will be filling Jonny’s post as soon as we can and I know that our new Agent will lose no time in making contact with you!

    We would like to send our thanks to you and your team for making the event so memorable and enjoyable. Everyone was very happy and it was an evening to remember.

    Thanks again, and all the best,

    Dear Lyndsey,

    Thank you for your kind words.

    We can't thank you , Theo and the rest of the team for making our day special.

    Everyone said how amazing Beales is and we agree.

    We finally went to bed about 2:30am on the Saturday night/Sunday morning and I think the first time we sat down at ours was Sunday 7pm on which we both feel asleep on the sofa!

    Our mini moon to Budapest was lovely and would recommend going there.

    Thank you again.

    Best Regards,

    Richard & Jacquelyn

    Dear Andrew,

    Re: Fundraising Dinner – 7th March 2015

    Thank you for the excellent service – as usual – at our Fundraising Dinner that Step held at your hotel back in March. Unfortunately we did not make as much money as we would have liked, but we have gained several new volunteers, which will actually be worth more to Step than the money we expected to raise.

    Thank you for your kind hospitality, support and generosity towards Step.

    Yours sincerely,

    Chris Birch-Evans.

    Dear Linda

    Thank you so much for your kind donation for my Charity Golf day that took place on Friday 22nd May in aid of The Play Appeal – Lister Hospital.

    We managed to raise just over £4500.

    Without your support, it wouldn't have been such a great day.

    Kind regards

    Enquiry from Criterion Ices website

    I visited Beales Hotel in Hatfield this evening and had a Sweet Basil, Lime and Pistachio Praline Sorbet which they tell me you prepare.

    Please tell me where I can buy this. It's amazing!


    RE: Enquiry from Criterion Ices website

    Good morning Keith

    It is correct thay we supply Beales Hotel with its range of dairy ice creams and fruit sorbets from an extensive range, but our commercial talents good as they are, do not extend to such a culinary masterpiece. I believe you will find that this sorbet has been created by the excellent pastry section at the hotel.

    I wish you well in your searches.

    Gayle and I were very impressed by your honest, open and welcoming manner to which our numerous questions were answered.

    We are delighted to confirm that we would like to book Beales Hotel for our wedding ceremony, reception, “breakfast” and party.

    I suggest we have a quick phone chat tomorrow to start to put the right pieces in place before Gayle and I go off to France on Saturday.

    Re: Fantastic Staff And Service at the Beales Hotel in Hatfield

    Dear Andrew,

    I am just writing again to let you know what a wonderful evening my girlfriend had at the Beales Hotel restaurant in Hatfield last Friday.

    Not only was the food and drink first class as always, but we were just so well looked after by Sumi and his team. You just cannot fault the service and the friendliness of the staff!

    We will certainly be back very soon!

    By the way, we both noticed the dining chairs have been replaced, which is great!

    Kind regards,
