What our customers say...
I just wanted you to know how pleased we were with the quality of service we received from yourself and your colleagues , up to and during our little event .
The organisation was faultless , and your colleagues were discretely attentive on the day . Several of our guests commented on the great ambience ( + the sunny aspect ! ) , the super food and the overall effect .
We've been to West Lodge before so knew what to expect ... and you all delivered ... thank you so much . It relieved what might have been a sad day, and we went out on a high note.
I have been meaning to send you a quick email for some weeks now to say thank you for a really enjoyable lunch in the King Charles room on Boxing Day.
Everything was spot on. The food was excellent and the portions were very generous. The service from Will and Chris was exemplory. They were very efficient, helpful and patient!!
Please pass on my thanks to Chef, Chris and Will for their part in making the day a success.
My thanks also to you, Sharon, for all your brilliant help in the organisation of the day.
My very best wishes to you all for a very happy, healthy and successful new year.
Mary and I have just returned from West Lode Park and I wanted to write to thank you for a wonderful, generous opportunity to enjoy the hotel.
As always, we were looked after so well and it was lovely to sit and enjoy Pam & Roy’s company over tea and drinks on Saturday afternoon. The atmosphere in the bar and lounge was very convivial and dinner was excellent. Every course was beautifully presented and so tasty. I particularly enjoyed the salmon and soufflé for dessert was quite something! What a real treat to finish the meal. Surprisingly we found space for a full English breakfast to ‘round’ off the stay. It’s a good job, weather permitting, I have some tennis games booked this week.
I do believe the stay at WLP was my ‘final’ retirement “do” from December 2012. It was certainly worth ‘saving it up’ and the Bainbridge’s also enjoyed themselves, celebrating (thanks to you) Pam’s 60th birthday. However it will not be our final visit to WLP, a place we delight in.
Thank you Andrew; I hope we can meet up some time in the future.
Dear Sharon / Will
Just to say a big thank you, to you, and all your staff for yesterday, everything went very smoothly and the food, drink and surroundings were appreciated by all.
Afternoon Tea - Sunday 2 February 2014
Just wanted to thank you for arranging my birthday tea at your lovely hotel. It was indeed a really nice afternoon. The young lad who waited on us was excellent so helpful please make sure he knows how pleased I was with him.
All my guests said they had a lovely afternoon so I can only again thank you so much for arranging my birthday tea.
All good wishes
Lisa, just a short note to thank everyone at the hotel who made Mum's 98th birthday tea yesterday, so memorable.
All the staff were really excellent and right from the start, Matthew, the Head Waiter, set the tone of friendliness, helpfulness and calm assurance for the tea party. He coped admirably with late comers and particularly my mother's seating arrangement. He will know what I mean.
The table layout was just right and the table for the cake, just perfect. Really first class. Even the weather was great although that perhaps, was out of your hands. The young waiter was also so helpful.
Everyone, particularly my mother, enjoyed the day and it was such a success, I hope we will be back next for the 99th!
Please pass on my thanks to all concerned.
Thank you for such a very special occasion on Tuesday – and weren’t we lucky with the weather?
It was such a pleasure to meet everyone and to see the new planting and hear about your 50 year avenue which is a marvellous project.
I feel very privileged to have been included on such an auspicious occasion.
Thank you again - you certainly got Christmas off to a good start.
Happy Christmas and all the best for 2014.

There are occasions when a written letter is preferable to more recent forms of media, and the 50th Arboretum Anniversary is one of them. As ever, you arranged the event with perfection, so I for one felt that it fully met the significance of the day. Thank you for your generosity. I am sure that Mr. Ted too would have wholeheartedly approved. You have a good team that should ensure that it continues to mature in the style that was intended those many years ago.
1963 was a time when local and international affairs were in similar turmoil to those prevailing today so it is strangely gratifying that an ill-starred road proposal should provide the impetus for an inspired idea. I hope that I left the impression of a confidence and vision that was there in the mid 20th century, so enabling the two of us to create a living monument which had the potential of evolving in succeeding years.
Your later acquisition of the freehold was the crowning achievement.
I know that is what the Arboretum’s founder wanted, and I am grateful to have been a part of it.
May the coming years be as successful as the past. I hope to follow your fortunes for some time!

A note to thank you once again for inviting me to your celebration. I did enjoy the tour and, naturally, the delicious lunch – A Red Letter Day!
I was most impressed by the dedication shown to the Arboretum by Grant and Paul. Grant has certainly vastly increased his arboreal knowledge since I first met him.
May I take this opportunity to wish you and your family a happy Christmas and a prosperous new year.
A big Thank You to you and all the staff for another lovely Christmas Lunch last Thursday. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves as always. I'm sure we will be back next year!
With best wishes for the New Year

Many thanks for another great New Year's Eve at West Lodge! As always, the food, wine, service and ambience were first class and the event is always a highlight of our year.
It's hard to believe that our first meeting in the Summer of 2007 was to complain about certain aspects of our wedding which did not go according to plan and I remember you saying at the time that you wanted to make amends as you would like us to be regular visitors to West Lodge, well that's certainly happened and we both have very happy memories of times spent there!
That first conversation was 6 1/2 years ago and you have kept your word and personally looked after us ever since. Your attention to detail is very much appreciated as evidenced by the room upgrades, champagne and most recently the hairdryer! Please keep this safe as I forget to pack it on a regular basis.
We would like to wish you, your family and all the staff at West Lodge a very happy and healthy New Year and hope to see you again in the not too distant future.
With kind regards.
Ellie and Mark
We would like to thank you and all the staff for a really wonderful afternoon in the Lancaster Suite on Friday. Everything we had asked for was there, and the staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful, particularly Kristof, and the lady who was serving, whose name I have forgotten, but I am sure you will know who it was. They worked very hard. The setting was perfect and our guests loved West Lodge Park.
We look forward to more visits in the future.
Kind regards, Sandra & Michael Fox
Viv's 70th Birthday Party
I would just like to thank you and your staff for organising Vivienne's party yesterday so well.
It really went swimmingly and I think everyone there enjoyed it very much, especially Vivienne, and that's what really matters.
So once again thank you and hope to see you at West Lodge Park on another occasion.
Dear Mr Seward
What a wonderful stay we had last night at your delightful hotel. We were very concerned to hear that there was a Christmas party going on but as you stated it was no problem and we could not hear the music.
Thank you for personally sorting out our beds ( I asked Bill to book twin beds but he failed to mention it to Bruno) the meal was outstanding.
Have a blessed Christmas you and your staff.
Will and Betty Moore
Just wanted to e-mail you directly to give my thanks for the great stay and evening meal that myself and my wife shared at the West Lodge Park Hotel on the 22nd November.
We had stayed at your Hatfield hotel previously and had a very good stay , so expectations were high , and they were more than met.
The Hotel itself is charming, and the grounds and room really added to the occasion (it was my Birthday) , but what really made it a memorable stay was the evening meal accompanied by the pianist taking requests as we ate our food.
The food was top notch , and although on a "meal deal break" I was tempted to upgrade and supplement both the starters and main , myself and my wife really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere, good service and when the pianist (Jason ?) played "Mad world" for me that really made it a stay that will stick in my mind.
In a world where people complain so readily I just wanted to take the time to let you know that all our expectations were exceeded , and that I have already recommended you to my mother and father.
Many thanks once again , and if you could pass my comments on to the management team I would be most appreciative
We would just like you to know that our group of six thoroughly enjoyed our visit last Sunday to West Lodge for lunch which more than made up for our unfortunate experience on 7th May. The staff were superb and we shall be booking again in due course for next May. We stayed overnight as we live in Hampshire and would highly recommend the experience to our friends. Thank you again.
Mum's 80th party
Just a quick note to say a big thank you to all those who contributed to making mum's 80th birthday a wonderful night. Please could you forward this on to all concerned, on my behalf.
Firstly, Martin at the front door for being so helpful with moving all us old and decrepit "invalids" and luggage in the first place. Richard would have been driven out of his mind with us all otherwise!
Christov (hope I have spelt it correctly) and Kate, who were absolutely brilliant all night and worked their socks off to ensure that everything ran smoothly. By the way, Christov did a fabulous job with the decorations.
Of course Wayne and his team for preparing such a lovely meal.
Peter for being so kind and helpful the next morning at breakfast, for those of us unable to get our own because of mobility problems.
And of course you Sharon for making it all happen. It was so beautifully orchestrated that there was no room for error, and it made my part of the evening very easy and enjoyable too!
All the guests really loved it, and didn't want to go home, which is always a good sign.
Finally, I must mention the lady from housekeeping who helped my mum and her friend Bet, when my my slipped over yesterday morning. We don't know her name, but she rang through to my room immediately to alert us. She was quite a tall slim lady with longish brown hair, and a slight accent. She was extremely kind, and helpful to them both.
In the event of sounding corny, Andrew must be very proud of you all as a team, because you are a very well oiled machine that make the finished product a very slick operation, no matter how many times we celebrate with you.
Thank you once again, and I will look forward to throwing Richard a 50th bash in a couple of years time.
Luckily, we only have a couple of weeks to go before we spend New Years Day lunch with you. We truly find West Lodge to be our "chill out" relaxing "bolt hole" that never drops its high standards.
Many thanks again
Lunch Party - Sunday 15 December 2013
Dear Sharon, just a quick note to express our thanks for ensuring all the arrangements for our Golden Wedding Anniversary went so well on Sunday. It was memorable occasion and all our guests had a really enjoyable time and commented on the food, venue & service. Please convey our heartfelt thanks to Adam & his team.
Once again thank you and we hope you have an enjoyable holiday and a happy 2014.
Jackie & Melvyn Carlowe
Just a quick note to say a big thank you for all your help, Saturday was a huge success, the staff , food, ambience were all perfect, Susan was more than pleased.
Again many thanks for all your help and kindness
Thank you for looking after us so well on Saturday, we all had a lovely time and the hotel looked so pretty with the Christmas decorations. Please also pass my thanks on to the rest of the team.
Scattering of Ashes - Saturday 16 November 2013
Hi Sharon and Grant
Thank you both for your support. We were able to scatter mums and Janice's ashes this morning with our immediate family and the refreshments and private room was perfect. Grant would you kindly just drop me an email once Janice's plaque is in place.
Thanks once again
Thank you so much for your hospitality and time yesterday. I felt that the visit to West Lodge Park was extremely useful for myself, Michaela and Martin and prompted much discussion on the tube on the way back to Kings Cross.
The function rooms were presented extremely well and I think that it really brought to life some of the things that we, the Bakers Hall team, have been discussing.
It was brilliant to meet your team, I have already emailed Lynn and can see that she and I will be sharing knowledge on a number of matters.
Thank you once again.
Please can you pass on our praise and thanks to all of your staff for making my husbands birthday celebration so enjoyable! Our large family of 13 who attended on Saturday (19th October) all commented on how wonderful the service was. Nothing was too much trouble (including adding an extra two people to the table at the last minute!).
Our waiter, Sam Chamberlain, was particularly helpful and polite.
Please do pass on our thanks, we have always loved visiting the hotel and restaurant, and will continue to recommend it to all.
Kind regards, Mrs Angela Harris
