    Recent stay

    Good afternoon

    In response to your follow up email I am pleased to reply.

    Our recent stay was as ever comfortable and relaxed.

    Everyone was naturally friendly and attentive with special mention for Andreas. It was also great to catch up with Karla and Sumi.

    Dinner was excellent and therefore very enjoyable.

    We will see you all again.

    Thank you

    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,

    Hi Patsy,

    Just wanted to let you know that we all really enjoyed the weekend. Lovely comfortable rooms in a very nice hotel, very nice dinner, enjoyed our first murder mystery (and won!), and a really good breakfast too.

    We will definitely look at coming again for future murder mysteries.

    Also all helped by finding a lovely tea rooms in Westmill for lunch on the way up and afternoon tea on the way home.

    Many thanks for all your help.

    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)

    Event: Saturday 29th June 2014
    Niamh & Connor’s 18th and 21stBirthday Party – “Fairytale Ball”

    This is my family and I first experience with Beales Hotel and we all must admit we were extremely impressed!

    While booking and organising the event, our excellent and diligent event Coordinator Patsy Milligan catered to our every need! She was fantastic! I am a bit of a control freak when it comes to organising parties, I am very organised and pedantic but I never felt like I was inconveniencing Patsy with my emails. I always received cheery emails no matter how large or small the problem was.

    My sister and I are both coeliac, I was very pleased with Beales Hotel attitude to both are party canapé buffet food and also to our breakfast after staying overnight. A small note would more options would be fantastic but I was overall happy. Theo was running our event on the day and he was superb he made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived, making sure we were happing with everything. He was very organised and extremely professionally. Patsy and Theo also added a special touch of a personalised cocktail menu on each table, this I thought was a lovely idea. All of the waiters that evening where so friendly, and I had excellent feedback from the guests of our party.

    Overall the whole weekend was fantastic! The staffs are amazing both in the restaurant and on the reception desk, the rooms are beautiful, the food was amazing (especially the gluten free options!), Patsy and Theo deserve a medal for all their hard work. I would highly recommend Beales Hotel for any form of party especially if you have Patsy and Theo apart of your team!

    Look forward to work with you again!

    Kind regards

    Hi Patsy & Alex

    I just wanted to send you both a note of thanks for making my Baby Shower a very sweet and memorable occasion.

    It’s taken a while of planning and reminded us all when we were planning my wedding, the amount of effort, detail and hard work that went into it and similarly it was a day to remember and was perfect in every way.

    Patsy – it’s been lovely working with you and I thank you for all your help with the co-ordination of the party which was most appreciated, you’ve always been on hand to answer my emails and check progress.

    Alex – a special word of thanks to you, you were very helpful the day I came into the hotel to settle the balance, whilst there were no other events organisers to hand you were very attentive, stepped in and discussed everything with me. I would especially like to thank you for all your help on the day, you came in to make sure everything was ok and going well, and were on hand where we needed, so, thanks for all your help, which was most appreciated.

    My family and I were overall extremely impressed with the service at Beales which is thanks to you both, you are credit to hotel and we will definitely be coming again to either sample the great atmosphere in your restaurant or maybe another future event.

    Thanks again for everything and please send this commendation to your Hotel Manager for their viewing

    Kind regards

    Dear Andrew Beale,

    The company, of which I am an associate, booked me into Beales Hotel this week while doing some work for Roche in Welwyn.

    Normally, I stay somewhere nearer and was not best pleased to be made to stay somewhere I didn't know.

    It turned out just fine. Walking in on Sunday night I was greeted by Barbara who checked me in with a personal touch and immediately won me over.

    The hotel was easy to find and although it took longer to get to Shire Park it was an easy journey.

    Your rooms are extremely comfortable, the food both in the bar and restaurant extremely good, your staff just lovely and I had a really good experience.

    I would happily stay with you again and encourage others to do so. The hotel was a surprise. Classy. Not what I was expecting.

    So thank you and your staff for an excellent stay.

    Sincerely - Veronica Roberts
