Dear Mr Hall,
Greetings from New Delhi.
A few days back, on my visit to University of Hertfordshire, I had the pleasure of staying at Beales Hotel.
Please convey my thanks to all members of the Beales Hotel.
Look forward to staying at Beales during my next visit to Hertfordshire.

Re our flying visit:-
It was a birthday surprise for my granddaughter who is studying at the De Hav site of the University and it was perfect....
As on our previous visits, every staff member was friendly and helpful and the meal in the evening was superb, we will definitely be back.

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.

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

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
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.

Dear Staff @Beales Hotel
Despite of your staff discount, we had a most wonderful time at Hatfield Beales Hotel during our brief staying in England. Please accept our thanks for the great hospitality we received during our stay at your hotel. Not to be mentioned the wonderful family dinner we had at the West Lodge Park. Also we like to to extend our thanks to restaurant staff. As an admirer of the seventeenth century British Paintings, I was so fortunate to view the collections of the magnificent works of Mary Beale's original paintings and to understand the historical connection to the Hotel and its patrons.
Thank you again.
Wish you all a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
Sincerely, Pushpika and Ranjith Wijesingheback to top
My husband and I just spent two very pleasant nights in your comfortable and stylish hotel in Hatfield. There were a number of things we liked particularly:
Efficient and charming staff on reception - Amena Hassan on our arrival on Wednesday evening; unfortunately we didn't register the name of the young lady on the later shift on our second night, who was outstanding and amongst other things, resolved a tricky bureaucratic problem for us. Also, the morning shift waitress in the restaurant.
The scrambled eggs were out of this world.
Liked the art work and really approve of your promotion of local art talent.
We plan to recommend this hotel if anyone asks.
Yes, really lovely staff. You train them well.
Renate & Russell Millerback to top
Just wanted to say a big thanks for making sure our stay was so seamless.
I was very impressed by your staff and the efficiency of all elements.
My mother stayed in Room 21 and wondered whether there was a slim chance that the flower corsage that she wore at my wedding was still in existence.
She was hoping to dry the flowered out but forgot to pick it up.
Can you please let me know if you still have this?
If so can it please be set aside in an envelope for me to collect later in the week.

Dear Mr. Hall,
I just wanted to thank you and your staff for such a pleasant stay at Beales in Hatfield a week and a half ago. Your staff was able to accommodate our last-minute request for a second room, which was very helpful.
Our stay was delightful. Both rooms reflected the touch of someone who really cares. They were quiet and spotless and, I have to say, we noticed and appreciated the closer on the bedroom doors to stop them from slamming shut.
We had dinner at the hotel that night and enjoyed a marvelous meal (fish wrapped in banana leaf, fish and chips) with attentive atmosphere. The perfect way to end a hectic day.
Again, thank you.

Hi Just a quick e mail to thank you for a great weekend from the Loftus party X 6 having stayed at the end of August 2013. Very comfortable rooms and hotel and excellent food. The beds were superb I know you comment on Trip advisor where your beds are made but where do you get your quilts from they were so comfortable. Regards and see you again. J Loftus.back to top
My wife and I stopped at Beales last weekend on your £99 deal.
We were impressed by everything really - food, room, staff, cleanliness For special mention - Kieran in the Restaurant and Carla on Reception - I hope you will pass that on.
We are hoping to stay again in the near future as the initial reason for our stay was a helicopter trip (a present), but the helicopter was poorly so we will be re-booking that and intend to stop at Beales in conjunction.
I will put you a mention on Trip Advisor
We came across only one thing which didn't let down the stay but perhaps spoiled the ambiance of the restaurant - one man who wore beach shorts for evening meal whilst everyone else was at least smart-ish casual. Some people eh?
Once again a big thank you

Dear Mr Hall,
Had to e mail again to say that my husband and I stayed at Beales on Friday last (30th August) in room 31. Once again, we had taken advantge of an offer and once again we had a wonderful time. The food in your restaurant is outstanding and we found all the staff to be very efficient and friendly. The room was really comfortable and beautifully clean. I have to repeat what I said on my last visit - that Beales Hotel is wonderful!!
Ellen Leeback to top
Firstly would just like to thank you for a wonderful stay at your hotel. It was a surprise last minute gift from my partner which she booked through secret escapes. The hotel was very well run / looked after and the food was superb.
I would highly recommend your hotel to others.

I'm not normally someone who has much to say about hotels - I stay in them 4 nights a week. But by far (and I wasn't expecting this) - I have never seen a hotel tick all of the perfect boxes in my mind. Everything during my stay was fantastic - right from checkin, through to breakfast.
I'd like to thank you and your team for an outstanding stay. In my book I'd happily give you guys a 10 out of 10 - and I can honestly say it was the best hotel I have ever stayed in.

We stayed at your hotel for one night on Saturday 22nd June. I would just like to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay, albeit too short! Our room was very comfortable and clean and I was really impressed by all the local artwork around the hotel.
I would particularly like to mention Alex, your Restaurant Manager, who very kindly offered to give us a lift to Hatfield House, where we were attending a concert. Taxis were in short supply and Alex did not hesitate in offering to take us, something we were very grateful for.

My wife and I are on a road trip to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We started in your “Beales” hotel last night in Hatfield, next to the Galleria. We are in for a treat if all the other hotels we visit are as good as yours!! We would like to commend your staff, especially Peter, who served us drinks last night and also Diego your excellent chef. The food, the hotel and our room were excellent and we slept like tops. ‘Thank you’ again for a nice start to our 25th celebrations.

Room 39 – 2nd/3rd June 2013.
I regularly come to Hatfield on business and have stayed at your hotel on 3 occasions. After having to endure a stay in the Ramada all last week, I was looking forward to returning to Beales on Sunday evening 14th April, and had impressed upon my colleagues how lovely Beales was in comparison. After a horrendous journey up by train, I was desperately in need of some comfort in the shape of chocolate and I rang down to reception and asked if there was any available. Moments later a young lad (I think his name was Tim) knocked on the door and offered some bars that he had brought for himself earlier in the day, he didn’t want any payment for them and just confirmed the view I already had that the Beales Hotel is a far superior, friendly and clean (I can’t stress this enough in light of my other experience the week before) hotel and I want to say a huge thank you to you and your staff, working away from home is hard enough but the little touches that your hotel provide go a long way in turning a bad day into a good. The food is always presented wonderfully and the staff are quick to carry out any request. Please can you say a big thank you to your staff on Sunday night, especially the young gentleman.
I look forward to returning.

Our overnight stay on Saturday 9 February
I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for the super overnight stay we had at the weekend to celebrate my mother's 85th birthday.
Everything was perfect, even down to your care with the baby. Thank you, I will certainly pass on our recommendation.
As it happens, my boss is CEO for Metaswitch Networks, a north London computing software company. We work quite closely with your sister hotel, the West Lodge, where we hold all our graduate recruitment dinners and overnight stays. I have visited the West Lodge on many occasions, but have never had the pleasure of Beales.
I will keep it in mind if we have requirements further afield from our office.
With kind regards and many thanks again.

As I am recording your checkout invoice for my stay on 7th to 9th Nov (room 55) – I realise I MUST write and thank you for a very good stay. Indeed congratulate you on a very well-run and pleasant hotel experience.
I do not know the area, found myself delayed there for a couple of days( meetings) and took a chance on an unknown hotel.
I was thrilled with what I discovered at Beales. Comfortable, clean, well maintained, interesting decor, food that surprised rather than disappoint, and thoughtful and caring customer service. Eve and Peter were the front facing people whose names I most recall but of course I appreciate to achieve your standards it takes the whole team from kitchen to bedroom.
If I am lucky enough to find myself in the area again, I will definitely be checking to see if you can fit me in!!
Regards & thanks

Stay at your hotel
I stayed at your hotel on Monday, 2nd July. May I say that it was one of the most comfortable hotels I have stayed in (I travel a lot and stay in many hotels). You have very clean lines, with muted colours, very restful. I dined in and the food was very good, with a varied menu. Pleasant, helpful staff throughout the hotel.
Thanks for a good night, and I’ll put a positive mention on Tripadvisor.

Just to feedback that we had an enjoyable stay recently on friday 1st and saturday 2nd july. The rooms are nice and modern, breakfast was great, staff all very helpful and polite especially the bar staff you had on both nights, price was also very good at £130 for 2 nights b&b so we would have no qualms staying again. Only small gripe is cost of a large Pinot at £7.95 a glass which is still about £2 more than standard prices but i appreciate we are paying Hotel prices for drinks, also a suggestion would be to fill up rooms near to the reception area i.e. rooms 1-10 last as they are closest to the bar and function room so when you have either a wedding or as in our case a school prom on, you can hear the noise until about 1am and not ideal if you are looking for an early night after a long day. Overall it was a good experience and one we shall certainly repeat again if the price remains the same.
Hope this helps,

We had an excellent stay thank you – I sent an email yesterday to Andrew saying thank you for your kind hospitality by allowing my husband Chris and I to stay on Friday night.
We really enjoyed our stay, however brief, and found the staff in particular to be excellent and very friendly. You have a really good team there who went out of their way to sort out an issue we had with a taxi company and resolved the situation for us even though it was very late at night.
I included a piece on Beales Hotel on my blog yesterday – click on the link below and it is the latest blog – which includes a link through to Beales Hotel as well.

Dear Mr Hall
Further to your letter to me dated 11th January 2010, I would like to thank you most sincerely for your kind hospitality during your stay on Saturday evening.
My wife and I had a very enjoyable evening, greeted with a most kind and warm welcome. Dinner in the restaurant was extremely enjoyable and the presentation and service were excellent.
As we had such a wonderful 2009 New Years Eve party at Beales, we are hoping to arrange a small party for New Years Eve this year and will be contacting you to arrange this as soon as we receive confirmation from friends.
Please convey our sincere gratitude to your staff for their attentiveness and personal service at all times. I would like to commend you too on the efficiency and professional manner in which your hotel is run.
My wife and I look forward to staying at Beales again.

I would just like to pass on my thanks and congratulations to you for the very fine hotel that you have at Hatfield. I had the pleasure of staying at your hotel on 1 May to 3 May 2010.
I was surprised after reading the guest information that I had in fact visited the hotel before in 1970 when I had my wedding ceremony in the octagonal building that was part of the original Hatfield Lodge Hotel. I remember the distinctive red wood panelling.
You have created a distinctive hotel that I would say is the best in which I have stayed. Even some of Sydney's top Hotels, cannot match the service and quality of the accommodation. I will be recommending the hotel to friends and I am pleased to have found you on the WOTIF website a site that I use frequently in Australia.
I grew up in Hatfield and I come back every couple of years to visit family who still live locally. Hatfield has changed since I left in 1970 and I am sorry to say not for the better so finding such a gem of a hotel was a most pleasant surprise. I will definitely be staying in your hotel again.

To whom it may concern,
I just wanted to send a note to say thank you to all the Beales Hotel staff for their support during our (PPD Inc.) last stay at the Beales from September 14-18, 2009.
We had a large group staying at the hotel for a meeting at the hotel on the 15th and then off-site meetings the remainder of the week. Clare Markham was fantastic, during the reservations stage of planning for this tirp, and I just was someone to know how much we appreciated her assistance. She responded quickly, was flexible and patient, as we had to make many changes over a 2-week period. I did not hear of any errors with reservations, and everyone loved their hotel rooms. I would also like to thank Amy Tregidgo, who helped with scheduling the conference room on the 15th of September. Regardless, of my slow response on occassion, Amy ensured that we had a place to meet, and for that I am truly grateful. One last thank you goes to Linda Purton. During my last two visits to the Beale, Linda has always been so accommodating and sure to offer assistance in any way. Linda went so far as to make iced tea for those of us from Texas, which was greatly appreciated.back to top

Just a few lines to congratulate you all after my recent first visit to your hotel.
I found all of your staff to provide an excellent level of service from the check-in/out reception to the restaurant/room-service staff.
The standard of hotel/room decor was exceptional and the quality of the rooms and standard items provided therein were exactly those i would expect from a quality establishment.
Dinner in the restaurant was also of an excellent standard and value for money. I will have no hesitancy in using your hotel in the future if the need arises.
Many thanks for your recent e-mail and the invoice. I have actioned the invoice and so payment should be made very shortly. Many thanks for making my guests stay a comfortable one – I look forward to speaking to you again in the autumn.

A short not to say how much we enjoyed our visit, great food and super staff. We were particularly grateful that you warned us of your event on the Saturday night, thus enabling us to change our plans. Nothing was too much effort and it was very much appreciated. Sadly I didn't complete the questionnaire as we were looking after 4 elderly relatives! Please add me into your draw as we would love to come back!!!!

Thank you for making the reservation for me. I had a most enjoyable stay at the hotel last weekend and the staff made every effort to ensure I was satisfied with the room and the service. The young lady on the front desk when I checked in and out was exceptionally good. I look forward to staying again later in the year.
My wife and I stayed at The Beales Hotel, Hatfield at the weekend and we would like to offer our thanks for an excellent experience. Having stayed at many hotels around the UK for business and leisure over the last few years, we are often disappointed at the levels of service we receive.
The service at your hotel was outstanding. The check in was fast and efficient and the receptionist was welcoming and very helpful. The hotel is stunning and far superior to its original condition and we got the impression you have worked hard to think of everything. The décor reminded us of the K West in Kensington, although I would say you beat them in all areas. We had lunch in the bar which was excellent and again your staff made us feel welcome and valuable. I get the impression that while you see the need to make a profit, there’s a greater need to exceed expectations. Decent coffee and complimentary pastries made our day. There are so many other points I could mention as it’s rare to be treated so well. Please forward our comments to the Manager as he clearly works hard to motivate his staff and maintain excellent levels of service. I wish you well as you continue to carry the Beales legacy into the 21st century. Best Regards,
Business Development Director
I would just like to say thank you on behalf of Premier Oil for accommodating our group at your hotel last week. It was really helpful that Beales had enough rooms to cater for our last minute add-ons to our party. We really appreciate your opening your restaurant extra early so that our team members could eat before leaving for the 07:30 am start at our corporate golf day at Brocket Hall. Also, the taxi firm you recommended – AAA taxis – were extremely helpful.
PA to Chief Executive Officer
Thank you all very much indeed for helping us with our daughter's wedding on Saturday. She was so radiant and smiled all day, apart from when she cried in the service! The Registrar remarked that she had not seen such a weepy bride! When I paid the bill on Sunday, I left a cheque as a tip to share among you.
All our guests were very happy with the Hotel and remarked how good it was and the service was splendid. We shall think of Beales for any events in the future!
With my very best wishes,
On behalf of all the Wedding party!

A short note just to say how impressed I was by the service, food, wine and accommodation for the meal I enjoyed last night at Hatfield. It made for a splendid evening.
