    Dear Andrew,

    Once again, very many thanks for all your help and generosity for our Annual Dinner last Friday.

    All went according to plan and I had a lot of compliments re the meal. I went into the kitchen and thanked the chefs, which they seemed pleased about.

    All staff good, Chris, Lyndsey, and Mark cope with me very well and are all most helpful – do just what I want!

    Again, thanks,

    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

    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,

    Hi Lyndsey

    First let me thank you on behalf of the Campus Club for your hard work to make yesterday's Golden Anniversary Lunch such a success. We all enjoyed it immensely, Beales service and the meal were first class and the staff all courteous and helpful - well done! We'll be back sometime for a future celebration.

    The Salisbury Room was ideal for the pre-lunch drinks and the Buckland Suite an ideal room for our numbers.

    Thanks also for sending the final account which I have checked and it looks fine. I have passed it to our Treasurer, Tony Keach, to settle up with you.

    Once again many thanks for your personal attention which we appreciated.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Patsy

    We had a splendid time yesterday evening. It all started on a high when we first saw the room – the tables were beautifully decorated and the overall impression was ‘wow’.

    Karla looked after us extremely well – her team were very polite and efficient and all the arrangements went exactly as we intended.

    Please extend our thanks to all concerned – particularly to the Chef for producing an excellent meal.

    My thanks also to yourself – I have appreciated your ready help with the many demands I have made on your time. It has always been a pleasure to talk to you.

    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.

    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Yours faithfully,

    Barbara Jefford.

    Hi Andrew,

    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.

The venue looked great and the food was lovely, congrats to the chef, which Sam did in his speak (county chairman). Also I have had members saying that it was good that they only waited a few minutes to get served at the bar, which is brilliant.

    Thanks again and we have a county meeting next week, I am sure it will be decided that they would like to come back again. Venue is so central for everyone in the county.

    Dear Andrew

    I wanted to personally contact you regarding my wife Sylvia’s “special” birthday party on Saturday. The party has been in the planning stage for over a year and we looked at a number of hotels in Hertfordshire and decided on Beales after being shown around by Akasha.

    Right from the start of the process she has been extremely professional, initially showing us the many ways of dividing the function room and advising on best positioning for the band, food and bar.

    She also advised us with regard costing and decoration. Throughout the process she has been responsive to questions and suggestions and settled our nerves as the day approached.

    On Saturday we had over 90 people attending from all over the country (and Cyprus !) so it was important to us that the day went smoothly.

    We needn’t have worried. From the check in staff, who were very efficient to Alex the duty manager who dealt with us and responded to our requests in a positive and resourceful way (and not forgetting the barman who worked tirelessly until 4am !) everyone we came in contact with had a smile on their face.

    On the Sunday morning there was an large influx of people into the breakfast area at around 9am – once again your staff dealt with everyone patiently and skilfully.

    So, in conclusion, I wanted to thank all at Beales involved in the successful arrangements and running of our party. Everyone who attended has complimented us on the choice of hotel and had a fantastic evening and overnight stay.

    Please pass on our best wishes to your staff and we look forward to our next “special” event at Beales hotel.

    Yours sincerely

    Dinner party at Beales Hotel

    Dear Chris,

    I was very pleased with the dinner which we held last night. The Hatfield room was just the right size for an oval table for 16. The service was very good, and I was particularly glad that the waiters knew the details of the canapés, which does not always happen in other hotels.

    The food was inventive - the new canapés were unusual and tasty, the duo of duck was really well cooked and garnished, and the white chocolate cheecake was a winner.

    Please thank Kieran and Diego for everything, and Katie for typing the menus and place cards.

  • 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.

    Re: Fund Raising Dinner

    Beales Hotel Hatfield did us proud last night! Everything about the evening was very well organised; the room, seating; equipment needed etc. The menu was superb and the staff extremely efficient, discreet and helpful. We were especially impressed with Kieran who was in charge; he did everything possible to assist us in setting up and preparing the room from 4pm onwards. He remained completely focused on us and our needs and kept a careful watch over his team, leading by example. He's a gem!

    In the end we had 42 who sat down for the meal, over half being 'potential donors' (but obviously couples counting as one). When we added up all the one-off gifts; plus the Standing Orders (to include the giving for 1 year); plus the Gift Aid for the total; minus the hotel expenses, the amount raised comes to £7050.

    This only includes the figures for those who returned forms on the night - quite a few took the forms home to think about it.

    Added to that, we intend to write to all those who expressed an interest in becoming a Friend of Step but who could not come on the evening. We will send them the same forms and invite them to sign up also. There are a considerable number of people in this category - more than twice the number who came on the evening.

    Also, the event has now reaped a considerable data base for Friends of Step.

    So all in all, we are thankful to God for all that we have learned in organising this event; for all the new contacts we have made, and for the valuable finances which have been raised, and may hopefully still be raised, as a result of the Dinner.

    We are immensely grateful to you, Andrew, for your generosity and encouragement without which we might have given up halfway through this exercise!

    With all good wishes

    Christine Barron
    On behalf of STEP

  • Hi Amy,

    I just wanted to write and thank you for everything you did to help organise our event last week. The night was just as I had hoped and everything ran really smoothly. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I can't fault anything and we were looked after exceptionally well all night. All the staff were helpful and polite and I'd appreciate it if you could pass on my thanks to them. Keiron was particularly great and made sure that everything ran smoothly and everyone had a great time.

    Thanks again for everything.
    Kind regards

  • We had our wedding reception with you last August and decided to come back to celebrate our 1st Anniversary for 2009.

    We have held a couple of events with you as well as had many meals in the restaurant, and can't fault the service which you provide. The staff are very helpful and friendly which makes the experience all the more pleasurable!

    Please pass our compliments onto the chiefs, as the meals we had were fantastic!!! (Especially the desserts!)

    We look forward to coming back soon!

    Kind Regards

  • Dear Amy,
    As mentioned on the phone thanks to yourself and all the team for a spectacularly successful evening.

    All participants without exception loved the food, the venue and the quality of your hotel. Several said the next morning that they had never slept in such comfortable beds!

    The bar and catering staff at the event were charming.

    The room setup by Stephanie is shown in the attachment. What a gorgeous daughter we have to lay all this on for her mum!

    Very best wishes and thanks again

    Thank you for you for for your kind thoughts. Yesterday went very well and I am sure mum is looking down on us and being
    very proud of a good send off for her. I was very impressed with the function and the food was excellent and so was the service. As soon as I saw the function room it felt the right place to have this
    special occasion.

    Kind Regards

    Re: Birthday Party, Beales Hotel, 28th Feb 2009

    What can I say.... the night was everything we had hoped it would be. An excellent venue, fantastic DJ and food and wonderful service throughout.

    I'm particularly grateful to you for all your help in the run up and responding positively to however silly or strange the request seemed to be. All the guests commented on the great venue and being able to continue the party till 1 made all the difference for those travelling long distances.

    We'll certainly bear Beales in mind the next time we decide to celebrate. Please pass our thanks onto the whole Beales team.

    Re: Stamford Hill Ladies Night, Beales Hotel, 28th Feb 09

    I hope you've recovered from your evening over-seeing our dinner arrangements. I was in the catering trade as a young man and I know how much hard work is involved.

    I thought the event went off extremely well, the service was excellent and the waiting staff were very polite and accommodating. Amy you were as ever ultra efficient and a pleasure to deal with.

    I will get feedback but this will filter in slowly over the next few weeks , having said that many guests were complimentary on the night. Amy thank you for you attention and assistance over the last few weeks in making Saturday a very enjoyable night. Kindest

  • On behalf of the President and all the members of the Friern Barnet Lodge and the Guests, we thank you for all your advice and help in arranging the Ladies Night on the 19th April, it all seemed to fit in place so well. Would you also thank John Keane and his team who looked after us, in a very efficient and pleasant manner, it was commented on by all. The food was great, would you please congratulate The Chef and his team on a wonderful meal, a delight to enjoy.

    We will be booking again next year, will advise a date as soon as possible.

    Thank you all

    70th Birthday Party - November 15th 20008

    Thank you for your "after sales" service. Yes, the day went well. The young gentleman who was in overall charge conducted the proceedings in a very efficient manner (according to one of the guests who knows about these things!). Once she had told me what to look for, I could only agree. I think our main problem was the long delay between the reception phase and the eating phase. There could well have been a revolt amongst the sub-12 year olds but the parents were on top of it before it went nuclear!

    Feedback from everyone I have spoken to has been very positive, and I must thank you personally for your active attention to the details to ensure the event was a success. Please pass on my thanks to your team for ensuring it was day to remember.

    With best regards,

  • Dear All

    I would like to thank for making our day so successful on Wednesday, it was such a lovely day and a great idea to have coffee in the main dining area and have access to the patio area.

    The food was superb everyone I spoke to thoroughly enjoyed it.

    I would also like to thank John - I did not see him when I left - just to say he was very attentive and gave us excellent service as did his staff.

    Thank you again

  • Dear Management and Staff

    Our reunion went very well and I was very pleased with the service which Beales provided. The room was set out well for the number of diners and the food and service were very good.

    Please pass on my thanks to the DJ for humouring us with early 80's music!
    I shall pass on my thoughts to Vicki Laing at RVC because I think that Beales is a very good venue for those wishing to meet up and re-visit the college at Hawkshead.

    Many thanks for all your help.

    Dear Management and Staff

    I just wanted to drop you a note following my party on Saturday night. What can I say.... it was great! I had a fabulous time and I believe all my friends and family did also. Certainly all the smiles and compliments seemed genuine!
    Please pass on my thanks to John who definitely provided a calm and dependable front all evening! Wonderful to know he was there to sort out some last minute and a few through-the-evening needs. And the rest of the staff who I was aware of almost invisbly managing food and drinks throughout the party.

    So many of my friends complimented the food... had I managed a morsel or two myself I'm sure I'd be able to add my praise but the role of hostess rather took over... it all looked wonderful, I can definitely say that! The hotel itself also received compliments for it's contemporary design... I have to say I was delighted that I found and booked Beales.

    Thank you again to the conference co-ordinator for sorting it all out for me, answering all my bothersome questions and ensuring that my 40th celebration ran smoothly.
    I will await the invoice of additional charges; by all means do e-mail it through to me and I will put a cheque in the post.

    All the best

    Thank you all so much for all the planning, organisation and service that we received at our Party on the 8th March

    This theme was never going to be a straightforward event to put on and you did this with the utmost amount of professionalism and care. You were not put off by the fact that we wanted "Breakfast" in the evening to fit in with the theme and we appreciate that this required a tremendous amount of organisation.

    We had the most wonderful time and would recommend your lovely venue and the services of your staff to everyone.

    Thank you again and very best wishes.

    Again many thanks to all who looked after us on an evening which will be remembered as an exceptional evening, for a very long time.
