    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

    Hello there,

    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.

    Many thanks,

    The purpose of our stay was to visit our granddaughter on the de Havilland campus. Your hotel was not only very handy to this site but also very comfortable, all staff were excellent and the food was awesome. We will most certainly stay in this hotel on future visits.

    Many thanks A & M. Adock

    THANK YOU

    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 Wijesinghe

    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.

    Lovely rooms.

    We plan to recommend this hotel if anyone asks.

    Yes, really lovely staff. You train them well.

    Great service

    Hi Mihaela,

    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.

    Kind regards,

    Liz

    Thank you.

    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.

    Sincerely,

    Iris Ameen and family.

    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.

    Hi Chris

    My wife and I stopped at Beales last weekend on your £99 deal.

    Faaantastic!

    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!!

    Kind regards

    Chris,

    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.

    Hi Chris,

    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.

    Many Thanks

    Feedback

    Enjoyed business stay, quiet friendly hotel.
    The Manager wore many hats and was very helpful and professional.

    Having stayed at the Lodge before I got married in May, have to say a credit in service to the lodge and I thought the lodge was good.

    Thanks

    Recent Stay

    Dear Sirs

    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.

    Kind regards

    Mr. Beale

    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.

  • April 2013

    Hello,

    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.

    Kind regards

    Our overnight stay on Saturday 9 February

    Hi Alex

    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.

    HELLO

    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!!

    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.

    Hi Clare,

    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,

    Many thanks,

    Mr Darren Killick

    Hi Chris,

    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.

    Yours sincerely,

  • 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.

    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.

  • Dear Andrew,

    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,

    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,

    Hi Lyndsey,

    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.

    Dear All,

    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.

    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.

    Dear Andrew,

    I want to drop you a quick email about our experience of your conferences team at the Beales Hotel in Hatfield.

    The team there are always helpful, accommodating and patient, and we do often test their patience! In particular I wanted to commend Akasha Cawson and Katie White, who are always helpful and professional. They are fair but firm in their dealings with me, and always go the extra mile.

    I also wanted to mention the fantastic job Linda Purton does, despite our best efforts there are invariably changes, on the day, to all the meetings we plan, whether it be timings, layout or equipment and Linda always handles it professionally and courteously. She doesn’t make me feel bad for asking for things to be changed, and does whatever she, or her team, can to assist. She is professional, personable and conscientious and a pleasure to work with, and it is very much because of this attitude that we continue to hold events at the Beales Hotel.

    Thank you.

    Dear Katie,

    I just wanted to touch base with you after our event last night.

    Firstly, I would like to thank you for all your hard work in setting up the room. It looked lovely. So I would like to thank you, Alex Hendon and Akasha Cawson who both came and introduce themselves to me and checked that everything was ok.

    I do have one thing that I really think needs to be fed back. There was a staff member (Mark Kerr) who was very perceptive and couldn’t not have been more helpful! He was brilliant! The night definitely went extra smoothly because of him. So we would like you say a massive thank you to him if you could please pass this on.

    If you could forward me a break down of costs with the total I will be able to supply you with the Purchase Order Number so you are ready to invoice. When I have this I will send an email explaining who to address it to etc.

    Thank you again!

    Afternoon Gemma,

    Thank you for your e-mail – the evening was an overall success, we had some great feedback from the attendees saying how much they enjoyed their dinner and stay at Beales hotel.

    The flowers turned up just on time and looked really good on the table. The lady who dropped them off did ask to keep the bowels which I informed the catering team of on the night. She said she would come over to pick them up when she had a spare moment.

    The only thing that didn’t run as smoothly as is could was – as the main courses were being brought out, two ladies informed us that they were vegetarian – obviously this is something we would have liked to have dealt with before the evening event took place but unfortunately they didn’t pass on that information until the night! The kitchen made them a lovely meal but it did take rather a long time to prepare – if they had maybe done a dish that was quicker to prepare we wouldn’t of had to ask so many times when it was going to be ready.

    Apart from that, the staff were great and Kieran was brilliant at sorting and overseeing everything.

    Finally, please can you ask your accounts department to forward the invoice to us as soon as possible.

    Many thanks for all your help,

    Hi Andrew

    I just wanted to take the time to send a note expressing how pleased I have been with all the staff at Beales Hotel Hatfield but especially Linda Purton (guest services manager).

    Linda’s attention to detail and “can do” spirit has really helped to make this weeks meeting one of the most successful and beneficial meetings I have led in 2010. On numerous occasions Linda had to change and adapt processes in order to meet our needs which must have presented many challenges for her. From rooming and equipment to dinning and hospitality all of our needs were successfully met.

    As a result I will be holding my next meeting on the 6th December 2010- 10th December 2010 at Beales Hotel Hatfield

    Hi Chris,

    I just wanted to thank you for your hospitality and to say that your staff were all charming especially Kieran. Everybody enjoyed the buffet the only exception being the pork pies which were left for some reason. I didn’t try one myself but notice that if anyone did they were not eaten. This is just some feedback but maybe you need to check out the ingredients.

    All the people who hadn’t been to the hotel before remarked about how nice and modern it was, they hadn’t realized what was so local. Hopefully it will drive some trade to you, as a few asked me about prices of rooms etc. and I told them to ask reception. I will contact you as discussed after Christmas & New Year (hope you have a good one) about the hotel becoming a member.

    Once again many thanks for your enthusiasm and helpfulness in accommodating my requirements.

    We had an excellent stay at the hotel as always and the dinner was lovely. Because we had a busy day, we left around 10pm and it seemed to be in full swing. Kieran and his team did do a good job.

    Just once piece of feedback. I know breakfast isn’t served until 8am at weekends, and I had to order room service breakfast because I had to leave at 8am to go the college on the Saturday. It might be worth considering starting breakfast earlier at the weekends, just to cover people who may be working or want an early start.

    I received your invoice this morning which I have passed through to our Accounts Department.

    I hope you are well?

    I just wanted to give you some feedback on the meeting on 26th - 27th August. The meeting host at Roche (Kevin Woodhams) has been highly complimentary of Beales. The staff went the extra mile and he was more than pleased with the hotel. I just wanted to pass on my appreciation and please pass on the praise to the staff as every delegate was passed on positive feedback. A delegate was in the middle of Ramadan and the way he was catered for at the hotel was spot on and this is credit to the staff. I think it is really important to pass this on to you as in this industry dealing with complaints can become routine and it is good to receive credit where it is due.

    Many thanks.

    Dear All,

    Am pleased to report that having spoken with Kevin Woodhams this afternoon (contact for Roche's 2 day meeting which had taken place yesterday & today), everybody had left extremely satisfied with the service provided by the hotel.

    Kevin explained that nothing had been too much trouble and that every member of hotel staff he had dealt with had been friendly and accommodating. He very much liked the size of the meeting room as this seemed to work perfectly for this type of training - as well as the feature of natural daylight.

    Kevin has attended a meeting at BH before but has not held a meeting himself here. He will definitely request to come back if he finds himself conducting training again.

    He also particularly mentioned that a member of hotel staff had been able to accommodate one of his colleagues (who had been fasting), in providing them with a snack later on in the evening. Whoever this was - well done. Kevin was very impressed with this attention to detail.

    Thank you.

    Dear Mr Beale,

    Just a quick e-mail to thank you for the excellent service provided by your team over the last 3 days: 22nd -24th June.

    Although your air-con system broke down during one of the warmest weeks in June, your team did everything in their power to make this situation as comfortable as possible for our delegates.

    Linda was able to respond quickly to all our last minute changes in requirements (timing of breaks, contents of nibbles during breaks, change of breakfast location on the last day, temperature adjustment to air-con when working, loan of speakers from one of your staff members to view the English game etc...).

    We are especially grateful for allocating to us the Therfield room for the last day as this was not expected and a very welcomed indeed; it was greatly appreciated by our attendees.

    Linda and her team have done a great job.

    Thank you.

    We look forward to returning in late July for another workshop.

    Have a good weekend.

    Dear Mr Beale

    Yesterday we ran our Mend the Gap training day for church youth workers and clergy at your Hatfield Hotel. Through Andy Humm you very kindly provided us with facilities at very helpful charges, thus enabling us to use your hotel.

    I am contacting you to thank you for your generosity towards us, and indeed for what was a great experience for our participants. The support from your team was outstanding, particularly Shane who introduced himself as we arrived and then proceeded to serve us with great courtesy and professionalism.

    The lunch was also highly commented upon, and in particular the obvious care taken over people with special diets for whom some rather lovely looking salads had been prepared.

    For most of the participants, who are used to undertaking training in a church hall in generally uncomfortable surroundings, this was a great way of encouraging them and thanking them for all that they contribute to young people in various ways.

    I do hope that we may be able to use you again in the future, but please pass on my thanks to your staff who made it such a quality day, and to you for your generous support.

    With my best wishes.

  • The reason for this letter is to first thank you for our brief, but pleasurable stay at your hotel which,was unfortunately cut short to the severe weather warnings in Wales where we had come from and meant that we had to cut our stay short.

    I wish to commend your their friendly and efficient staff, the standard of accommodation and the extremely good food. Secondly, we would ask that you pass on our special thanks to Shane. He was so concerned that we may be trapped in snowbound traffic that he went to the trouble of preparing sandwiches and fruit for our journey in case we became stranded.

    We frequently visit our family who live the Hatfield area and over a period of time, we probably have stayed at virtually all the local hotels. However, we consider yours to be the best experience so far and are pleased that we have now discovered you, and we most definitely will be booking with you again in the near future. We will also be recommending the Beales Hotel to our friends and other family members for their visit to Hatfield

    Thank you once again for a most enjoyable stay and we look forward to our next visit (an uninterrupted one we hope)

    Happy New Year to you all

    He has already been to BH several times last year and has been consistently impressed with our service/facilities. Respironics hold 4 training sessions a year, one of which is held in Hatfield. Previously they’d taken business to Bush Hall (he wasn’t aware of their closure which I updated him on). Now from using beales several times already, they are happy to continue to use us for all of their training sessions that are planned for the area.

    Today Mr. Pollington was particularly impressed with the lunch- everyone had good things to say. Also had noticed Kieran’s help in ensuring teas, coffees were on time. He appreciated we’d refreshed these quietly with no disturbance caused to the session when entering/leaving the meeting room.

    Well done & thank you to everyone involved.

    Many thanks

    Just a quick note to say thank you so much for helping organise the function on Saturday.

    We all had a great time and everything went off really well. Kieran and the other staff were excellent and I couldn't fault them.

    The flowers you booked were great, the DJ was also really good and we have had really good feedback.

    In fact my Uncle will be contacting you shortly to get a price for a party next year.

    Thanks again.

  • Dear Andrew,

    As you may well be aware, I hosted a breakfast meeting at your hotel in Hatfield yesterday morning and I just wanted to write to share some feedback with you on our experience.

    I arrived at 7.15am to be greeted by Linda Purton, whose attention and service yesterday morning was simply first class.

    Linda ensured that the mornings details were checked with me prior to the guests arrival at 8am. This was exactly what I required, as I had been on holiday prior to the event and left the final details to other members of my team. Linda and I quickly established that several details were not correct (our fault not yours) and Linda went about finding staff to assist in correcting all of these issues quickly and efficiently.

    The breakfast event was a success and Linda and the 2 other members of your staff played a significant part in this success, for which I am extremely grateful.

    I hope to host more of these events over the coming 12 months and will of course remember my experience of yesterday.

    Best Regards

    The event was a tremendous success and thanks once again for your enormous generosity.

    Dear Lauren and staff at Beales Hotel

  • I just wanted to drop you a quick note to highlight how impressed we were with John Keanes management of our event. John really made the evening run smoothly and there were a number of hiccups which were dealt with promptly, discretely and without and any stress to us. Nothing was too much trouble and John even made the morning breakfast run smoothly, although im sure he must have been tired from the evening prior. I just wanted to take the time to comment on the fact that he is a real credit to your team.

    Very many thanks for making us so welcome at Beales on Tuesday. We had a most successful conference, thanks largely to the efficiency and flexibility of your staff. They were quite unphased when the theatre layouts in syndicate rooms were changed to cabaret at a moment's notice, they were invisible and soundless when clearing away after lunch and coffee, liaised with us and provided refreshments faultlessly on cue, produced a flip chart which had not been ordered and when the band arrived thirty minutes early they amazingly managed to accommodate thirty four children with drums on the floor of Reception while I told them an impromptu story. Nothing seemed to be any trouble. I really hope other Hertfordshire education departments will pick up on our recommendation. We will certainly be back.

    Many thanks to you all.

  • Just a quick email to thank you for the meeting venue and smooth arrangements yesterday afternoon. We arrived just after 1:00pm (were running late) but I was pleased to be me met by linda and have a quick chat confirming arrangements.
    John brought the afternoon tea etc. in right on cue at 3pm and as planned you had water available. I counted 10 bottles of water used.

    As I mentioned to the receptionist when we left (about 5:30pm), we had used 22 sheets of the flipchart in our brainstorming so I decided to bring the whole pad with us - trust that was okay.
    many thanks

    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)

    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.

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for your email.

    Just got back to work today!

    We had a lovely honeymoon in Vegas although both mike and I were sick with flu!

    Just wanted to say a big thank you to yourself, Katie and Kieran for an amazing day we had on the 28th. We couldn’t fault the hotel at all.

    Lots of good feedback for the food and service. Say thanks to Diego, his team did a wonderful job.

    Katie was on hand and replied quickly to all of our queries and Kieran was amazing on the night.

    Alex the next morning was great with our breakfast room with all our flowers bought up on the tables – made it very special to have all the friends and family together for brekkie.

    Nothing was too much trouble for Kieran and the team, he was always around and if we needed anything was on it immediately. He really is a credit to you.

    Reception staff were lovely and chatty in the evening and the housekeeping staff were great and efficient on the day of the wedding.

    Thanks again Chris from Mike and I to you and the whole team for an amazing day which we will never forget!

    Dear Akasha,

    You're welcome for the trip advisor review! I was going to email you to say thank you properly too but we were on trip advisor looking up hotels near another wedding we're going to and I thought I should actually get on there and tell people we were really pleased! We really were - we loved the day and a huge part of that was the reception at Beales. We had a guest who up until a couple of months ago was the events co-ordinator at Claridges and she said how impressed she was with the staff, those serving dinner and how 'on it' Keiran was!

    The food was lovely - we had lots of compliments on it from guests and we were really pleased with the DJ too. The room looked lovely, and there really was nothing that we were disappointed with or would have wanted differently!

    So thank you - you were very reassuring and helpful in the planning stages and the day went like a dream - we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Beales as a venue for a wedding reception!

    Thanks again! Please pass on our thanks to the other staff too.

    I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for all your help on our wedding day. The room looked lovely and all our friends and family had a fantastic time and I can honestly say other than the fact that we were running late due to the church I enjoyed every second of it and wasn't stressed at all.

    Thank you also for the breakfast the following day, it was great being able to speak to all our family without me worrying about anyone treading on my dress, incidentally it was my new husband that did that most!

    Good luck with your wedding plans, I'm sure it will be brilliant as you do so well at your job it will be a breeze.

    Thank you again, and hopefully see you next year on our anniversary.

And to Kieran and the staff who provided an amazing service on the day and the following day at breakfast and check out.

    We couldn’t have wished for anything more than the first class service. All the staff were so friendly and helpful and many went out of their way to make sure everything went off without a hitch. All our guests were made to feel welcome by the staff, and were also very impressed by the building and the beautiful artwork within it.

    We really cannot express how eternally grateful we are for everything you did for us which made our day so fantastic. Could you also pass our thanks on to the lovely DJ who kept the party going with all the right music. We look forward to returning for our anniversary celebrations.

    Hiya Katie

    Hope you are well - thanks for the note, yes we went on honeymoon to Italy. We got back late Sunday and then I jumped straight into a 2 day away conference for work, not ideal but it was ok. So i haven't had a chance until now to reply to your message.

    Everything went brilliantly! The room looked absolutely amazing - better than I thought it would. When it all came together it looked perfect - thank you and your team for everything you did. The whole decoration of the room was spot on, with the lights and candles it was like walking into something magical (I know that sounds cheesy but you know what I mean!). Outside looked lovely as well. So many people also commented on it being the best wedding breakfast they had ever had, we seriously had so many comments on the great food.

    Huge huge huge thanks to Kieran was it? Sorry his name escapes me. He was just the best support person all day - he was constantly on hand to ensure everything ran smoothly and whenever we needed his help he would act on it immediately and it would be sorted in no time - he was brilliant so please pass on my thanks to him. The whole team in fact were very professional and polite.

    And the private breakfast was really nice as well - everyone commented on how lovely it was to have a private room the next day - so thanks for that as well.

    Was everything ok when we left?? We didn't damage anything or leave anything that needs picking up??

    Thanks again Katie - it was the best day of my life and Beales was the prefect place to host the celebrations!!

    As promised, we wanted to send over a few pictures from our wedding on the 6th of August, and to thank you for all of your hard work and support both in the lead up to the event and on the day itself!

    Throughout the last year, we have found you to be extremely attentive and supportive of every aspect of our wedding. You have given us fantastic advice about the running of the day, and it seemed as though there was no detail too small. The room was set-up beautifully and your professionalism and care significantly reduced the stress surrounding this type of event, and enabled us to feel relaxed and thoroughly enjoy our day!

    On the day itself, the Beales staff were nothing short of outstanding! The whole event ran like clockwork from start to finish, and we received so many lovely comments from our guests on the superb choice of venue. Might we also take the opportunity to compliment your chef and kitchen staff on an excellent meal!

    We will undoubtedly be back at some point, and will be recommending you to all of our friends!

    Thanks for everything and all the best,

    I wanted to say a huge thank you to Beales for providing me and my husband the most spectacular wedding day we could have ever wished for.

    I did not expect anything less than perfect yet some how Chris and his team still managed to exceed our expectations for the day. Every part of the team pulled together and made the day perfect. Chris showed exceptional professionalism which was noticed by all, including my father, who still is still commenting on how hard the team worked and how spectacular the day was.

    All of our guests commented on the quality of the hotel, the service and the food. It made me very, very proud to be part of Beales.

    Your generous gift was unexpected but very kind of you, thank you very much.

    I have attached some photos so you can see the level of work Chris and the team put in.

    Many thanks,

    Kind Regards

    Kieran,

    I am sure that Charlotte and Jonathan will express their appreciation about their wedding when they return from their honeymoon.

    From our perspective, my wife and I want to say how much we appreciated the way in which the wedding arrangements were handled by the Hotel. I know that there have been a couple of changes in personnel since Charlotte first contacted the Hotel but have to say that the people involved have always been friendly, helpful and professional.

    On the day itself, you conducted the wedding event itself, from the reception through the meal and for the rest of the evening, in the same manner i.e. friendly, helpful and professional.

    All of the staff provided an excellent service; we were particularly impressed with the speed and efficiency shown when providing an alternative starter and main vegetarian meal for two of our guests; also the way in which the waitress waited to take away the packaging from the kosher meals.

    We are continuing to get feedback from our guests, all of it very positive and very impressed with the Hotel.

    Thanks and very best wishes.

    My wife and I just wanted to say a huge thank you once again for all the great service you provided for us in the lead up to, and during our wedding celebrations. Your efficiency and helpfulness was greatly appreciated and also noticed by many of our friends and family who also stayed at Beales. We have written a glowing (much-deserved) review on trip advisor, which should be on there soon and we hope you get the chance to see it!

    Thanks again,

    Dear Amy,

    Just a short note to thank you for your help and assistance in arranging the reception for Sally & Stuarts wedding you attention to detail was magnificent. In fact the whole team at Beales made the reception run really well. From the receptionist and Nathan on my arrival who had been so helpful and later Kieran made sure that all went well.

    The Buckland Suite was looking superb and all the waiting staff excellent. Would you please pass on my gratitude to all concerned not forgetting the chef and all in the kitchen and back room staff for helping me through the day, you are all a credit to Beales hotel.

    I will most certainly add you to my web-site and recommend you to any clients I meet in the future. I would always be happy to work at Beales Hotel,

    What makes a hotel are the people who work at the hotel.

    Please feel free to add this to your testimonials.

  • Dear All

    We wanted to write and say thank you so much for all of your hard work and efficiency in ensuring we had the most perfect wedding. We had only 6 months to arrange our wedding day and you made this a smooth and carefree journey for us both.

    We were surprised and loved the exotic fruit, chocolates and wine that were delivered to our bedroom shortly after we checked in – such a lovely added extra. No job was to small and you always listened to our requests.

    We love the Beales Hotel and even more so now that we have experienced our wedding reception there. We look forward to our Christmas party this year and would definitely use your hotel for other family/business functions in the future.

    No words can express how grateful we are for the service you provided us on our special day and we would like you to pass our thanks to all the staff who helped make our day so perfect.

    With warmest regards

    We are back off our honeymoon now and I just wanted to say thank you very much for everything. The day went really well, the food in outside-in was lovely, and it was great to have that intimate meal with my closest family. The Buckland suite looked great and the food, I am told was really good (we couldn't eat anything for the rest of the day).

    Please pass on my thanks to Chris who did a great job of looking after us, as did all the staff. And thank you for recommending Smart Ents as Sean was really fantastic.
    We all had a brilliant day so thanks once again.

    Re: Walker/Brooks wedding

    Thank you very much for being so helpful and efficient on Saturday/Sunday as well as during the planning. All the right bags ended up in all the right rooms (phew!) and the guests were delighted with the hotel. I had quite a few very positive comments. It certainly added to the total success of the entire wedding. It’s just a pity that we weren’t able to put-up more of the guests there instead of having to use the Remada.

    Re: Hilsden Prest Wedding

    Our daughter and her fiancé brought us to your Hotel yesterday so that we might see the wedding venue for ourselves and also to clear some outstanding queries they had. Afterwards we were ablt to have a meal in the Outside In Restaurant.

    The staff went to so much trouble for us, both in answering the queries and in showing us the accommodation. Nothing seemed to upset them and they went out of their way to make helpful suggestions. The meal was superb and, again, the staff were so helpful and caring that we felt really "at home"!

    Now we are looking forward with keen anticipation to the wedding in February and we know that everyone will have a stress-free day, thanks to your staff.

    Yours sincerely

    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

    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

    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,

    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.

  • November 2013

    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.

    Andrew,

    I’m not sure whether I ever thanked you for this email, but either way I wanted to write and say how grateful we were for the excellent service we received at Beales last Friday evening.

    This was our biggest Annual Dinner to date with 180 guests and the evening ran impeccably as far as I’m aware. And yes, even the mic system worked flawlessly. It was fantastic to have Karen and Tony there and I believe they had a good evening too.

    I can’t tell you how much your and Emma’s support is appreciated by me and Welwyn Hatfield Conservatives. It means a great deal to us and we’re incredibly grateful for everything that you do to help ensure these evenings run so successfully.

  • Hi Clare,

    Thanks for your email. I am in Portugal at the moment and not back in the uk for another week and have been here for 2 weeks.

    The party was lovely and we had a very good evening.

    Everyone was very happy with the hotel. There was also quite a few in the Ramada, travel lodge and premier inn but I think everyone agreed that Beales was tops!!

    Thanks for all your help with the booking.

    Kind regards

  • I stayed at Beales for two nights on the 14th & 15th February and wish to congratulate Beales for providing a first class experience from beginning to end.

    The menu and standard of catering on Saturday night far exceeded my expectations and your staff worked hard and enthusiastically. I do not normally rush to send “well done” letters but on this occasion it is justified.

    I hope to find an excuse to stay with you again and thank you for a memorable weekend

    Yours sincerely

  • 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

    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.

    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

    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 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

    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.

The food was delicious and very well presented and all your staff were helpful . We really had a perfect evening and could not fault it in any way.

    Some guests even said it was the best party they had ever been to ( and that is from people who have probably been to too many of these occasions!)

    Your patience and flexibility were greatly appreciated, especially because of our large numbers and numbers of children. There was more than enough space for everyone and it was the perfect venue.

    Kieran,

    I am sure that Charlotte and Jonathan will express their appreciation about their wedding when they return from their honeymoon.

    From our perspective, my wife and I want to say how much we appreciated the way in which the wedding arrangements were handled by the Hotel. I know that there have been a couple of changes in personnel since Charlotte first contacted the Hotel but have to say that the people involved have always been friendly, helpful and professional.

    On the day itself, you conducted the wedding event itself, from the reception through the meal and for the rest of the evening, in the same manner i.e. friendly, helpful and professional.

    All of the staff provided an excellent service; we were particularly impressed with the speed and efficiency shown when providing an alternative starter and main vegetarian meal for two of our guests; also the way in which the waitress waited to take away the packaging from the kosher meals.

    We are continuing to get feedback from our guests, all of it very positive and very impressed with the Hotel.

    Thanks and very best wishes.

    Dear Mr. Beale:

    On the recommendation of two Americans who stayed at your Hatfield facility last week, I brought an 83-year-old friend of mine to supper. We arrived before the start of the evening dining following a tiring walk around the grounds of Hatfield House. Alexander, the dining manager?, welcomed us and promptly sat us down, provided menus, ice water, and said that whatever we wanted he would produce from the kitchen.

    His attention to detail and his consideration for my traveling companion went above and beyond what anyone showing up at the odd hour could expect to encounter. The word, gracious, comes to mind.

    Thank you for employing him!

    I forgot to add that your food was as delicious as my American friends had indicated (we were all attending a conference on GB Shaw at Ayot St. Lawrence).

    So...my new advertising slogan for you is...

    "Make mine a Beales!"

    Good morning Chris, sorry to email you out the blue, but I just wanted to point out a member of staff that was brilliant during our evening.

    I was at the Outsidein restaurant on Saturday night (15th September) for my parents 40th wedding anniversary.

    We booked a table for 14 people and were told it might be a bit difficult.

    I then received a call from Alex, your restaurant manager, who explained that the table would be fine and we could decorate the table beforehand.

    On the night, Alex introduced himself to me straight away and explained that although there was a bar mitzvah for 160 people and another party, it would not interfere with our evening – he was right. Despite having 14 people all barking orders at him he was smiling throughout, was happy to bring the cake out and more than helpful during the whole evening.

    As were all the other staff including the lady on reception, the gentleman behind the bar and our waiter (I’m sorry, I can’t recall their names). And I’m sure they had more than enough on their plate with two other events on the evening.

    My parents had a great evening, as did all their guests and it wouldn’t have been possible without Alex and his staff.

    Your staff helped make the evening special for my parents and I just wanted to let you know that you’ve got a great team on your hands (I’m sure you’re aware).

    Thanks again Chris and I’m sure we’ll be back again soon, although on a smaller table.

    Kindest regards

    Dear Andrew,

    Susan and I had dinner in the Outside In restaurant last Saturday night, and were very pleased with everything.

    It was great to see the restaurant filled with people and buzzing. Considering that there was another private dinner for 14 people on at the same time, the service might have been slow, but it wasn't, there was no excessive delay at all.

    Kieran was doing a great job, running the restaurant efficiently and using excellent social skills on the customers. The food at Beale's Hotel is always stylishly presented and well cooked, and this was no exception. The cheesecake was outstanding.

    It is good to read the latest Trip advisor reports, too, which are rightly very enthusiastic.

    Well done the Beales Hotel team!

    Dear Mr Hall,

    I just had to e-mail you to say that I went to your restaurant Outsidein yesterday for lunch with my husband. I wanted to say just how much we enjoyed the whole experience and the food was absolutely fantastic!!The presentation is such that it seems a shame to eat it!! I must also say the service was impeccable and very friendly. Our server, Anna, was extremely helpful, efficient and very sociable. We don't often go out to lunch during the week, as we both work, but we had purchased a Travelzoo voucher for my birthday and I must say having experienced your level of service I will definitely take the opportunity to purchase any vouchers they do for Beales - either overnight in the hotel or the restaurant - in the future.

    Thank you all again for a wonderful afternoon. I look forward to visiting you again soon.

  • Hi,

    I’ve just eaten at the restaurant in your Hatfield hotel and…. . wow!

    As something of a ‘foodie’, this is some of the best food I’ve eaten out for some time. I had the pigeon breast (sublime), pork belly (a touch salty for my taste, but marvellous all the same), cheese (a good complimentary selection) then, couldn’t resist going with a dessert, having the sticky toffee pudding (a great presentation of the modern classic). Please pass on my compliments to the chef and the staff, who provided excellent service of this great food.

    Regards,

  • Dear Sir,

    I would just like to commend your staff at Hatfield having enjoyed a Tea for my Wife's Birthday on Sat. 28th March.

    When organising this a few weeks ago, I was impressed with Reception, then with Linda Purton who looked after me whilst Amy was with another client, and who I knew from my firm's dealings at the old BriggensHotel, and particularly with Amy Tregidgo.

    My Wife thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon, as did all the other Guests, and the setting and food etc. were really first class.

    We also lunched at West Lodge on Fri. 27th, and the new restaurant is certainly first class, as was the food.

    Please pass on my thanks to all who made Sat. a really happy occasion.

    Yours sincerely,
    David Wilson.

  • May 2014

    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.

    Grateful thanks

    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.

    I am sorry that I am only emailing you now. I was away last week on training and only work part time and was not at a desk to access my emails to send you a massive Thank You. It is my first day back in the office today and the feedback I have received following the students visit to Beales Hotel has been amazing. You really made both the students and my colleague alike feel most welcome. The visit achieved everything we set out as appropriate for their qualification and the photographs they took whilst during their visit really captured ‘Housekeeping’ in its element.

    It was wonderful that you were able to accommodate my request and I thank you and your colleagues for their time and energy with this visit.

    Dear Mr. Beale

    I wanted to send you a brief note to acknowledge the excellent service and support I received from Ms. Purton on my recent visit to Beale's Hotel.

    There were several stressful factors that occurred upon my arrival and Ms. Purton was thoughtful and kind in the way she dealt with me and the way she problem-solved.

    In addition, I was facilitating a meeting at the hotel and found Ms. Purton to be available and very proactive in her service support.

    I hope you appreciate her maturity and stellar customer service. She is a true asset to your hotel.

    I will be staying at Beale's again this coming week and look forward to seeing Ms. Purton again.

    Thank you and Kind Regards,

    Dear Sir,

    I feel I must write to you about your Beales Hatfield hotel.

    I have stayed in the hotel many times over the last few years and had a pleasant stay on each occasion. Recently however I intended to stay there again but, due to a mix-up (not your hotel's) could not.

    However your manager in Beales, Mr. Hall, was extremely helpful and went out of his way to assist us in getting accommodation in your West lodge location at very short notice.

    I know that people can be quick to complain and I also feel it is even more important to highlight excellent service - hence this email.

    Mr. Hall's professionalism, assistance and good humoured nature was an absolute pleasure to encounter and I will not only be a loyal customer to Beales Hatfield in the future but also ensure to recommend it to any colleagues or friends who are going to stay in or around London.

    Yours sincerely

    Congratulations on the politeness and efficiency of your front desk reception.

    Dear Mr Hall,

    I’d just like to express my admiration for your front desk reception staff who helped me with an enquiry this morning. The staff member in question was called “Lisa” and displayed a real customer service orientated manner. To be able to convey the feeling that she is committed to caring for guests needs from over the phone demonstrates her competence and pride in working for Beales.

    Please extend my praise to you team.

    Linda was both helpful and efficient. I will be sure to make this known to my friends and family members for the future.

  • Good Afternoon Chris,

    Re: Linda Purton - guest services manager

    I was running a training course on behalf of T-Mobile at your Hatfield hotel on Thursday the 12th February and I would like to point out the excellent service I received from Linda during the day.

    There was a problem to start with in that the heating had broken in the room allocated, which would have been very uncomfortable for my delegates as it was so cold. Linda provided a solution by working around other guests and providing an alternate room (Oaklands).

    Linda was happy to move screens, refreshments and anything else I required around as needed and nothing was too much trouble. This has ensured that (when I have the budget) I will be carrying out more sessions at your hotel in the future. Please pass my thanks on to Linda.

    Kind regards

  • Dear Sir,

    I stayed at your hotel the night of 19th September 08, booked in by my son-in law, Mr Baras Mast-Ingle.

    I had been having some neck discomfort at that time and had even had physiotherapy. I had a wonderful nights sleep at the hotel and the pillow was unbelievably comfortable, so much so that I wrote a note and made enquiries at the reception desk as to where I could obtain one.

    The receptionist thought it may have been John Lewis though this was not so as I went there to ask. In fact you may be interested to know that someone else had just called in to the store to ask the same question, also from your hotel.

    Once home I telephoned to see if I could progress with my enquiries. Your Guest Service Manager, Linda, contacted me. What a lovely person she is! She took my request seriously and is doing her utmost to track down the supplier so that I can contact them in order to buy a pillow.

    This lady has a responsible position within your team and must be very busy. My request is small and unimportant in the scheme of things. I felt that I should draw attention to her and thank her for her pleasant manner and actually taking the trouble to follow up.

    Yours sincerely
    Mrs Patricia M Sharp

  • I would just like to write to say how extremely grateful I was on Wednesday morning with the concern that was shown towards my daughter by your guest services manager Linda Purton.
    My daughter had been involved in an accident outside your hotel, when she was brought inside by one of your guests. As I understand from my daughter, Linda dealt with the situation in a very efficient and sympathetic way. When I arrived she met me in the car park, and briefed me as to what had happened, which was reassuring to a rather frantic Mother.

    I hope that you will pass on our thanks to her. We did try to see her on Thursday, but she had unfortunately left for the day. I have to say that I feel she was a good example to your Hotel, and if this is how non guests of the hotel are treated, then it would lead me to believe that any function or event held here would be given the utmost care and attention.

    Please pass on our best wishes to Linda, and we hope that she likes the flowers which is to thank her for her kindness.

    On behalf of the Computacenter’s Charity Committee, we would like to say thank you to you, Theo and all Beales’ staff who contributed towards the success of our Charity Quiz fundraising evening in July.

    The event was supported by 130 Computacenter employees and raised in excess of £3,081. This figure is being matched by Computacenter, resulting in a staggering £6,162 going towards our three nominated charities: Alzheimer’s Society, Teenage Cancer Trust and Prostate Cancer UK.

    Once again thanks to everybody who supported the event, your support is much appreciated.

    Hi Andrew,

    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.

    Kindest regards

    Mr Hall,

    Good afternoon and happy new year to you. We attended the New Year’s Eve event on Friday at the hotel and I wanted to feedback how much we enjoyed it. We were a party of four and all stayed in the hotel and were most impressed. At the risk of sounding rather over-enthusiastic, the champagne reception was a great start to the evening, the meal was delicious, well presented & well timed and we found your team to be helpful & courteous throughout. I particularly liked the black, white and silver colour scheme on the tables. We enjoyed the entertainment - even the more shy members of our party danced all evening.

    We all agreed that it had been a great choice and we’ll definitely consider coming along to such an event at the hotel again. Please pass on our thanks to your team who all worked so hard that evening (and presumably over the festive season) I hope they were able to take a well earned break over the weekend too.

    On behalf of all attendees of London Underground to the Christmas Party on Friday 18th December 2009, may I take this opportunity in thanking you and your staff for an excellent evening of providing food, entertainment and bar staff facilities. Everyone I have spoken to since Friday made several comments on how good the food and entertainment was and your staff being very helpful throughout the course of the evening and breakfast the following morning.

    Although I have copied my colleague Tony Birrell into this email I will be discussing with him when we meet up at work the probability of our returning to you next year which is likely to be Friday 17th December 2010 (subject to confirmation).

    Once again thank you and your staff for a really enjoyable evening - the layout and decor of the tables was truly remarkable and the band was really fantastic throughout the evening.

    We will be in contact a bit earlier next year as we will be looking to come to Beales for Christmas 2009 and I have a feeling more may want to attend.

    Can you please also pass my thanks onto the band as they were great. They had people on the dance floor all night which is a challenge in itself. Particularly good when the singer took to the dance floor whilst singing. Thanks again and look forward to seeing you again next year.

    I just wanted to drop you a quick line and mention what a great night my party and I had on Friday. The service was excellent and could not have been more attentive, the food was also exceptional.

    The band were excellent and very considerate by informing us before they started that it would get quite noisy by our table! Very thoughtful although I don't think we sat down all night as the music was brilliant.

    We will be back next year and will definitely recommend.

    Kind Regards

    I just had to write and thank you for a wonderful evening my staff and myself had on Friday 7th Dec. Everyone commented on the lovely food, great atmosphere, brilliant venue and brilliant night.

    As everyone was pleased how would I go about booking for Christmas 2008. It would be for more people this time as the ones that missed out want to come this time. I look forward to hearing from you soon and wish you and your staff a Merry Christmas.

  • Had to let you know what a fabulous time we had at the New year's Eve dinner dance. The food was superb - captured beef and sweet on camera. The band was brilliant. Please convey thanks to Management and staff who worked so hard. Have spoken to Eleanor, John, Anne and Josette on our table who said what a great time they had and roll on 2008 till the next one. Audrey at work was also full of praise and has even got more people interested in coming next year. - looks as if it will turn into a yearly event for us. Well done.

  • Dear Julie,

    Thank you so much for sending the Hotel brochure to us, so that I could book for your New Year offer of Dinner and stay over. We were a party of 6, and it was absolutely wonderful. We had one of our best N.Y's evening ever - we could not fault any of the 2 days, from the reception drinks, and then the food for the meal was simply delicious. The band was highly entertaining, and service was excellent - following morning for breakfast too. Please pass on our thanks to the management -

    Barbara Herman.

  • Just a quick note to say thank you for a good event – we had a great time - the food was excellent and the band was fun. Unfortunately the evening seemed to go far too quickly – it was well organised – so please pass my thanks to everyone who made the event such a good one.

    I’ll be back at Beales next Tuesday as we have departmental meeting arranged for the day – that has been organised by Katherine Allman who is one of my team – so perhaps we will be able to meet up.

    Kind regards

    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
