What our customers say...
Continued Celebrations at West Lodge!
I sent you an e-mail some time ago to let you know how much we value all the staff at West Lodge and the Hotel itself.
My husband, also an Andrew, and I got married and had our Reception on 8th August 1987 at West Lodge.
We then celebrated out 25th Wedding Anniversary there. In recent years, our elder daughter had her 21st Birthday with you and now, this Saturday 28th February, we are returning once more for our second daughter’s 21st Birthday.
I wonder what the next celebration will be?!!
With much thanks, and appreciation across the two generations.
Please pass on our admiration and appreciation to the Staff.
With best wishes,
Apart from a lousy football result Mum had a brilliant weekend. Her lunch on Saturday was a great success and everyone enjoyed a marvellous time.
Please can you pass on my thanks to Matthew and the restaurant team who worked tirelessly to make it a memorable event for everyone. Also a thank you to you and the whole team who ensured that Beales @ West lodge really hit 5 stars when it came to looking after Mum.
Have a great week. Very best wishes.
Yours sincerely, David Goldfarb

Dear Mr Beale
Once again I am writing to thank you very much for your continued support for The Friends of Guy’s Hospital. Your donation of an overnight stay for two with breakfast at the West Lodge Park Hotel made a significant contribution to the Christmas raffle, which was a great success. Your generosity enables us to continue to provide extra services for patients and staff that cannot be supplied by the NHS, and this does make a very real difference.
with best wishes for 2015

My Cousin is a Vegetarian, and I have a very small appetite, due to recent illness. Peter went to infinite pains to select the right choices for us, and to ameliorate my cousin's dish with a mixture of yoghurt and mint. The dining staff were diligent in making sure everything was fine, and we were very happy with the results!. The atmosphere was particularly relaxing, especially, with live music. Thank you to the Pianist.
We dined in the Mary Beale Restaurant on 7th March, and came away extremely pleased with our experience. From the first moment on entering the bar we felt we were in a very special place! Every request was greeted with a smile and with courtesy. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very professional, very welcoming, very caring, and very efficient. Thank you to all members of staff. The food, also, was excellent - beautifully presented and beautifully cooked. It was a real pleasure to be there and to enjoy such good fare.
We would like to thank you very much for all your help and advice. The tea went very well, the food was delicious and the staff very helpful. Everyone enjoyed it and suggested we repeat the event more often.
Please pass our thanks to Sam and the staff.

Thank you for a lovely Afternoon Tea experience
Dear Mr Hall, Mr Lyons and Mr Croxford,
I just wanted to express my thanks to you and your staff for such a wonderful afternoon tea experience today. I came with my mum as a Mother's Day treat and we had such a lovely time. Everything from the food and teas to the excellent and friendly service was enjoyable, and I very much appreciated that we did not feel hurried in any way.
Thank you once again.
Thank you for my beautiful flowers and the wine on Saturday. We all enjoyed the most amazing lunch. The staff were brilliant and a great credit to the company. From Matthew who quickly produced menus without the prices. Pete who oversaw the service at the table and all the other waiters who efficiently looked after us.
Our compliments to chef and all his staff in the kitchen, the food was outstanding.
My grateful thanks to all at West Lodge for giving us a very memorable lunch.
Thank you so very, very much for letting Ralph, Lyndsay and myself stay at your wonderful hotel.
It has been a lovely break for all of us – and has been so nice to look out on The Enfield Chase from our bedroom windows.
The dinner last night was especially delicious and beautifully presented – we all felt quite royal!
We are now about to enjoy a frosty walk and wander through the delights of the arboretum. A great finish to a great stay!
Denise, Ralph, Lyndsay.
Our waitress was Susie she was amazing so helpful Nothing was too much trouble as we had a 2 year old . Matthew was just great as we had a birthday lunch and he organised candles etc and the whole restaurant sang happy birthday to our 90 year old aunty thanks to all the team. Mrs cullip

Luxury in North London. Be prepared to be treated like royalty when entering the beautifully decorated restaurant, adorned with gold framed paintings of distinguished ladies and gentlemen.The most welcoming and exemplary restaurant manager you will come across in London. Well trained staff who are friendly and courteous add to the splendour of this Hotel. I have been to many 5* hotels and restaurants around London and Mary Beale's restaurant is in my top 10.

My name is Sue Mitchelmore and I spoke to you last Thursday after I had finished giving English lessons to the two French trainee waiters from Ferrandi. You asked me to put in writing my thanks and praise for the hotel.
As I said to you, I was very impressed by the care and attention that your staff give to every aspect of a visit to your hotel. On my first arrival, your concierge greeted me and subsequently spoke to me at each visit.The waiters who bring coffee and sandwiches are very efficient, smile and are very polite. One has the impression that nothing is too much trouble. I visit other similar 4 star hotels to give English lessons and I have to say that your hotel really stands out head and shoulders above them. Sue Dixon, your HR manager is outstanding. Not only does she organize the rota for the lessons, she ensures that there is coffee when I arrive and a delicious working lunch. She finds the time to talk to me about the trainees and is concerned about their welfare and progress. They in turn, are very appreciative of her efforts. Concerned about one of the trainee's poor English, she arranged for Anita Nicolaou to send me the SOP manual so that I could incorporate some service elements into my lessons which was extremely useful for me and them. This is the sort of attention to detail which is lacking in the other hotels of similar standing..You provide me with a lovely room to teach in (the Hornbeam room) whereas I have had to teach in a lobby or restaurant area in some hotels. It highlights to me how seriously you take the training and welfare of all of your employees. The French trainees have told me how lucky they feel to be training with you as they feel part of a good team where everyone is helpful and enjoys his job.
Hope this summarizes what I said to you last week.
Thank you so much for everything you and your staff did over the weekend for our Senior Leadership Planning Weekend. I have had good feedback from everyone to say how good the food was, how nice the rooms were, how marvelous the staff were and how perfect the meeting room was. They all said it was an ideal location for this type of event it was a very productive and successful working weekend.
I am sure we will be back again!

The whole experience was amazing. Wonderful way to celebrate my birthday with friends. The food was excellent and the fudge with the coffee was truly outstanding.
Mrs Maggie Jackson
As a regular visitor to West Lodge Park I have to compliment you on establishment....always made to feel very welcomed and the whole experience is a delight....shall look forward to my next visit
Just returned from another superb overnight stay at West Lodge. Once again the service and ambience was incredibly good. It was a lovely occasion for us and I especially enjoyed the delicious array of breads at dinner and the dessert soufflé.
Can’t express our gratitude enough except to say thank you for your generosity and great kindness.
Norman & May Hoare.
PS: I know the Bainbridge’s feel exactly the same!
Wonderful the way we are allowed to use our over 55 club card to get free coffee for everyone after the meal. I have recommended this to everyone I know and they have all applied for cards. Hope they all come and eat with you.
Thank you so much for a lovely weekend. We enjoyed all our food but the pistachio doughnuts were absolutely outstanding! great choice for breakfast too. Staff are brilliant as usual.
Just a short note to thank you for inviting us back to West Lodge, it was lovely to see both Norman and Mary and we all had a super time. Tea in the afternoon and then a fabulous dinner in the evening, it really was wonderful. Please thank all the staff for looking after us so well.
I hope you are well and life is being good to you.
It was my husband's special Birthday. .....so I wanted a everything to be perfect, and it was. From the lovely welcome from the doorman to a perfect table away from the busy part of the restaurant. Superb staff....really friendly and so helpful. Our waitress was very patient and dealt with all our difficult requests. Lovely helpful staff....The gentleman who showed us to our table was so welcoming. Food just TOP RATE......from beginning to end. Just superb food, what a chef!! Last compliment goes to the Pianist, he made our lunch, playing our requests and being so helpful with our favourite tunes and so friendly. A great afternoon. ...A special place for a special occasion. Thank you!
