Thank you for Friday evening, everything went very smoothly (and no over emotional students) and I also congratulated Alex on the smooth service we experienced.
It was an excellent night and we look forward to next year!

It was excellent. Both the students and the staff had a fantastic time.
The person in charge of year 11 next year is 100% that he will book the venue for the year 11's next year.
The food and staff were fab.
Thanks very much for all your help and support.

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!

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

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 Robertsback to top
Tuesday was great, thank you. We were very well looked after and lunch was delicious! The other attendees from other schools also commented on how great the room was.

Hi Lyndsey & Chris,
Thank you for your email and sorry for the delay in replying we have only just come back from our honeymoon, and we are now very relaxed.
Thanks for letting me know about the double posting we thought they may have happened.
We would like to say a big thank you to firstly Alex, from the moment I arrived at the hotel on the Thursday evening Alex was very attentive to not only to myself but all our guests also. He looked after us at dinner and throughout the wedding day the service of the meal went without a hitch and lots of our guests commented on the service of the staff. So thank you to all of those also.
The meal the drink and the buffet was excellent, the food in particular was well enjoyed so compliments to the chef.
The operations porter who set up the room late on the evening before saw me and made sure I was happy with the room and to tell him if I wanted anything changed he was very pleasant sorry I did not catch his name.
The duty manager that oversaw the evening I didn’t catch his name either was also very efficient and spoke to both Shae and I to again make sure we was happy.
Of course to you as well Lyndsey for all our email communication and answering all my questions.
Overall we are really happy with our wedding day the hotel was the perfect setting for it and all of the staff involved made it extra special so a big thank you to everyone.

Once again a fantastic evening. Lovely food, well organised and we were very well looked after.
Thanks to all the staff and look forward to seeing you next week.

The party was such an enormous success!!! If you fancy looking at some of the photos, go to Pixpod.com, then gallery, John's 50th party, and the password is: Beale
I'll pop in and pick up the platters and tie over the next day or so, on my way home from work, if that's okay?
I was so impressed with all your help, and the staff on the night, that I'm hoping to book my daughter's engagement party with you in the near future.
Thanks again for everything,
Amanda Jollyback to top
Funny you should email, as I have you on my list of people to contact this afternoon.
I just wanted to say thank you for a completely smooth and hitch-free programme. I'd like to single out Marc for particular praise, as he took care of everything in his quiet, unobtrusive and professional way.
I shall pass your details to my colleague if I may, as I won't be facilitating the September programme. However, we are talking to PayPoint about developing other programmes for them - including a possible residential course - and no doubt Beales will be the place for this. So I may see you later in the year.
Many thanks, once again, and have a great summer.

I am just writing to tell you that we had a lovely day on Saturday. Every time I have spoken with you you have been so helpful and the staff on Saturday were too. Alex in the morning and Sumi and his team in the afternoon smoothed out any small problems that arose from any of our party and made the whole event very enjoyable.
Please also thank the chef for an excellant meal the food was delicious.
Thank you again for all your help and it was very good being in the room downstairs it was much easier.

After speaking with the meeting hosts from last week’s Roche 5 day meeting they had some great feedback.
Alex and Tim, who were running the training last week stated that they travel globally delivering the training and the service they receive at Beales Hotel is fantastic. They first came in April and they were very impressed and will be returning again in October.
They asked me to pass on a big thank you to the Operations team for ensuring every ran smoothly and for the excellent service.

Dear Mr. Beale
It has been a pleasure to have stayed at Beales Hotel in Hatfield on a number of occasions and we have always found the staff to be helpful and pleasant.
On our latest visit just gone, two of your personnel were particularly notable in this respect - Karla and Sumi - so much so that we wished to make special mention outside of normal feedback.
Until this weekend I was unaware that the Beale family had acquired what was then the Hatfield Lodge Hotel back in the 1960s as it was at the Hatfield Lodge that our wedding reception was held on 3rd Jan 1970, sadly the lady I married that day and I divorced some eighteen years later, but we remain good friends.
It was a great day back then and a great recent visit made that bit more memorable and special by both Karla and Sumi.

Dear Mr. Beale
We brought our party of French guests from our twin town to the hotel on Saturday morning for brunch before visiting Hatfield House. Brunch was an experience unknown to them and I would like you to know how much they all appreciated it. They found it ‘very original’ and we all really enjoyed the spread that your staff had laid on for us.
The whole experience was excellent: Chris and Lyndsay were extremely helpful with the organisation of the event and we found that nothing was too much trouble. Sumi and his waiting staff were lovely and looked after us very well.
I’m so glad that we chose you for our visit; as you can imagine, taking the French out to eat in England can be a minefield, due to quality and cost, but you really did us proud and I would like to pass on our thanks to all concerned.

Dear Mr. Beale
I would like you to know how very much I appreciated the kind attention I received from Karla Snow, the receptionist at your Hatfield Hotel yesterday.
Having been diverted from the M25, which was closed in both directions, I was lost and went into the hotel to seek directions.
Karla couldn't have been more patient or helpful and I reached my destination safely thanks to her! She is a credit to your organisation.

Thank you for your email.
Everything was great, the team really enjoyed the day and the service was very, very good.
A big thank you to you and Lyndsey for all your help and assistance, it was very nice dealing with you and hope to have more events in the future.

I thought you'd like to know we have now raised £12,600 from the meal and will probably also receive £2,000 in gift aid too. It was so successful that the Trustee's discussed the possibility of running a similar evening again in the not too distant future since we had a lot of people decline attending this particular meal mainly due to the date, but saying they would like to attend another one.
Thank you again for your generosity and I hope you find some satisfaction in seeing how much it has multiplied.

I just would like to give some feedback on our stay at Beales. We had a 2 days training workshop.
We are very happy about the great support from Linda and her team. Due to the fact that we also try to adjust the training to our participants wishes we had to change the agreed in advanced timings for lunch. This was no problem to the team. We also enjoyed the nice rooms with the big windows.
Thank you very much. We are looking forward to have our next training in May at Beales again.

Good afternoon Lyndsey,
I hope you are well.
Firstly please accept my sincere apologies for not getting feedback to you sooner but I was out of the office until Monday and it has been crazy ever since!!
I would like to thank you and everyone at Beales that looked after us last Tuesday/Wednesday. Everything went really well and we couldn’t have asked for anything more.
Would you mind passing on an extra special thank you to Linda please for ensuring everything ran so well, sourcing the 2 flip charts that we asked for at the last minute but most importantly for looking after me at lunchtime too – I am sure she will know what I am referring too.
Many thanks once again.

Myself and 2 colleague’s stayed on the above date in readiness for work support on Sunday at an Event in London..
The rooms were very comfortable, great showers & bathroom facilities. Good comfy bed, although feathers a small issue for myself and allergies.
The Bar Team were polite & helpful, allowing us to order sandwiches despite a busy event taking place – 40th Birthday I think.
In addition, we were able to access breakfast slightly early to facilitate our departure which was appreciated.

I just wanted to say thank you again for your generous contributions towards the evening on Saturday. Having heard about your generosity with the space, staff and free courses, one of our donors agreed to fund the rest of the costs for the evening. Thank you for inspiring them.
The evening went very well. It started with examples of Steps work on tables, followed by a nice starter and meal. We then presented the work of Step to the guests followed by dessert and drinks. The conversations were animated and stimulating. It is always a joy to hear peoples responses to our work. Our guests were grateful towards your generosity too. I hope the mention of your involvement brings in more business. So far the evening has raised £6,200 for the year and there will also be some gift aid to reclaim too. We aimed to raise at least £10,000 from the evening and feel well on our way towards it. We are currently writing to the guests to thank them for coming and to see if they would like to support Step in the future. I hope to write to you next week with a clear picture of what Step raised.
