Funeral Receptions

Our staff at Beales Hotels have many years experience in sympathetically attending to
your requirements at this difficult time.

Organising an after-funeral reception can add to the stress of losing a family member or close friend. We offer a choice of menus and refreshments for you to choose from and are happy to accommodate up to 150 guests at West Lodge Park, and up to 300 guests at Beales Hotel.

We understand that timings and numbers for funeral receptions are difficult to manage, especially if most of your guests are coming to the hotel before the close family. In this instance we promise to welcome them in and ensure they have hot drinks, wine, and food while they wait for your family to arrive from the crematorium or cemetery.

Our Banqueting Manager will greet you and your guests upon arrival and direct you to your private suite. Our attentive staff will look after you and serve refreshments and stay on hand for any other requirements you have, or remain nearby for greater privacy. We also provide direct access for disabled and elderly guests, and ample complimentary car parking. Please contact a member of our Events Team to make arrangements.

    Dear Sir

    My wife and I are very pleased that we chose Beales Hotel as the venue for our after-funeral reception. The room was just right, the food good and plentiful and your staff made us more than welcome by their demeanour and service.

    Please thank them all on our behalf for making an unhappy day go without a hitch. We shall certainly recommend your hotel to others and use it ourselves now that we know that we have such a gem on our doorstep.

    Yours faithfully

    Tony Drew
