    Had not been to West Lodge Park for ages (to eat) and I was pleasantly surprised. Nice setting and Lounge areas. No complaints re food and I thought the menu was good. Back on my list (not that it was ever off).

    Dear Lisa,

    Just a tiny token of our thanks for the lovely celebration you helped me to organise for my Mother’s long life.

    On the day, Chris and his team were outstanding, the food was delicious and everything was quite perfect. Just as Mum would have wanted.

    Have a great Christmas.

    Thank you again.

    With best wishes,

    Jenny Swan.

    Dear Mr. Andrew,

    A very happy Christmas.

    I just wanted to tell you, on behalf of the Southgate Civic Trust, how much we enjoyed the guided walk on November 8th.

    The grey skies couldn’t dampen our enthusiasm because you made the talk so interesting.

    You gave each tree a personality of its own, and made us realise how special they all are, as is their history.

    It was fascinating to see trees once thought extinct, and also learn that we needed a real winter, for the trees to ‘shut down’, vital for their well-being. We’ll try to remember this on the bitterest of mornings!

    Many of the trees still showed their autumnal traits, some were ready for winter, and some will remain green throughout the year, but as you pointed out, all times of the year are interesting, and with that in mind, I hope we can have a return visit with you, perhaps in the spring. I will get in touch nearer the time.

    I wish you a very happy holiday (though I expect you will be quite busy) and a happy, healthy new year.

    Thank you.

    Yours sincerely,

    Janet Lane.

    Saturday Night at West Lodge

    I found a wasp in the bathroom and called down to reception. A brave young man (Dion) arrived and dealt with the situation.

    This is a wonderful hotel, comfortable, welcoming, clean, very well appointed, even real hangers, windows that open, note pads, writing paper and pens and even a bowl of apples at reception. I am bowled over.

    And it is because I am so impressed with everything that I want to tell you my one problem: The water. I wonder if perhaps you could save money on the water softener? It seems to me too much. It tastes, not just in the bedrooms (cleaning teeth), but in the pots of tea at tea time, glass of water at dinner etc. Might it be possible to use less of the salts?

    Dear Sharon,

    The lunch yesterday went off really well – although our granddaughter was not well at all, and spent all of it in the armchair your staff kindly provided in the corner. In retrospect we should have postponed things – but at least all the family were together.

    Because people were late, things became disorganized, and we would like to commend Linda for her patience and care for the whole afternoon. She was so helpful, it really needs to be reported! She sorted everything that needed sorting and didn’t seem to mind at all the informal atmosphere – the singing, etc – and the grandchildren running in and out.

    So – thanks from all of us.

    Debbie and Jeff Freeman.

    Hi Lisa,

    I have been meaning to drop you an email to say thank you for managing all my requirements for the meeting I had at West Lodge on 26th November. Everything was laid out and organised perfectly for my meeting needs, and your colleagues on the evening were extremely supportive.

    Thank you once again for being so accommodating.

    Kind regards

    Dear Andrew

    Yesterday, 12th November, I held a meeting for doctors and practice nurses at the above hotel.

    I feel compelled to write to you to let you know that it was a great experience.

    All staff were exemplary and in particular, Patsy who handled my booking and Linda who looked after us on the day.

    Please pass on my sincere thanks and I am sure we will have the opportunity to use this venue again in 2015.

    Kind Regards

    Dear Andrew,

    Our stay at WLP was very good indeed.

    A lovely touch to be presented with a glass of prosecco when we went to dinner and then to have our desert plate decorated ( see attached photo) just brilliant.

    Many thanks indeed for making our stay memorable

    Dear Sharon

    I am writing on behalf of the whole family to thank you for your help and guidance in arranging my sister’s funeral gathering. On such a sad occasion it was hugely comforting to know that everything was perfectly organised allowing us to greet Jo’s friends and colleagues without worry. All the staff were both friendly and respectful and the Chef and his team produced a lovely afternoon tea which everyone enjoyed.

    We have used West Lodge Park hotel many times in the past and, whatever the occasion, it never fails to exceed expectations.

    Kind regards

    25 Year Dinner


    Following on from our function on Friday, just wanted to give you some feedback.

    The person who was looking after us (sorry cannot remember is name) did an excellent job, he made sure everything run as clockwork and there were no hiccups, could not fault anything on the evening, even the waitering staff did an excellent job.

    Thank you for your help as well in organizing this event.

    We had a wonderful stay on Saturday. The food was fabulous and the room superb. The waiter who served us should be congratulated on his approach and politeness. I have stayed in a number of 4 star hotels that don't come close to West Lodge. Thanks very much. We will be back. I have posted our positive thoughts on tripadvisor.

    Best regards.

    Dear Sharon,

    We are writing to thank you and the West Lodge team for making our Golden Wedding celebration dinner a truly memorable occasion.

    Our guests were unanimous in their praise for the food, drinks and the service, nothing was too much trouble for the staff as they responded to any of our requests.

    Everyone was so impressed by the magnificent table and the way it was laid and decorated. The flowers were beautiful; so glad we asked you to provide them.

    All in all a wonderful evening that will be talked about for a long time. Thank you so very much.

    Very sincerely yours,

    Irene & John Gregson

    Dear Andrew,

    I’ve had such a lovely time at your hotel, Patrick said to me that if I needed anything in the hotel after he had left I could ask Anetey as the bar was open all night for residents. He has been so kind, I needed directions and he has provided me with this.

    All your staff have been so kind and helpful, unfortunately I haven’t been able to speak to them all.

    Dear Andrew,

    I am delighted to tell you that the “Afternoon Tea with an Italian Twist” held on Sunday 19th October raised £2,076 for the Alzheimer’s Society. The event was also supported by Barclays £ for £ scheme so a further £1,000 will be donated as well.

    It was a lovely afternoon and over 100 guests enjoyed a four course tea which consisted of many British favourites.

    The event was such a success due to the generosity of people such as yourselves and I would like to express my thanks for your donation and support.

    At present the Alzheimer’s Society are running a “Dementia Friends Initiative” and if you would like to find out more about it please visit

    So once again my sincere thanks.

    Kind regards,

    Dear Mr. McIntyre,

    Thank you for the cheque that I have received as credit for Herbert’s Birthday Tea, which was held on 19th October.

    I wish to convey my thanks to you and your staff for making the occasion such an enjoyable stress free experience. Throughout the arranging of the event both Louise and Lisa were extremely helpful and attentive.

    On the day Mark and Marion were very considerate, dutiful and polite, providing us with all that was needed.

    Everybody who attended remarked that they enjoyed the event tremendously. It made my father’s birthday very special indeed.

    Thank you once again.

    Best wishes.

    Frances Chesnick.

    Dear Mrs. Blackgrove,

    Thank you so much for your letter of 31st October, and I write to acknowledge and to thank you for the generous gesture of goodwill in offering a 30% discount when my cousin, Mrs. V.A. Stevenson, next comes to stay.

    Thank you for all your most efficient input into the arrangements for the Buffet Luncheon on Friday 3rd October last, which was greatly appreciated by all of us. The occasion passed very well indeed, and I extend my and my family’s thanks to you again for the catering and all the arrangements that you made for that day. I would add that my brother-in-law Heinz Brönnimann and his brother and their family all very much enjoyed their extended stay at West Lodge Park, and I thank you on their behalf as well.

    With thanks and best wishes,

    Yours sincerely,

    Dear Andrew,

    Thank you from the Bridge Quartet for your wonderful hospitality and generosity last Friday. We really enjoyed the evening and meeting members of our knowledgeable audience after the concert over tea.

    For me it was a pleasure to chat to you and Trevor and appreciate the enthusiasm and anticipation which lies behind such a successful and long-standing enterprise.

    We would love to be able to return and play at West Lodge sometime, in the meantime I hope you enjoy our recent CD, released a couple of days before we came to play for you!
