What our customers say...
Thank you so much for sending me a photo of Mum's new tree; it looks great. It was such a shame that so many trees died owing to the bad weather experienced in the UK.
On behalf of my husband, brother and myself we wish to express our appreciation for the excellent work you and your team have done in tending to the grounds at West Lodge Park. As you know when we are in the UK we always make a point of visiting West Lodge Park and if time allows we love to walk in the grounds. There is no mistaking your love for your work.Thanks again.
People are quick to write in with a complaint but I would like to do the opposite!
My daughter recently got engaged and last Sunday we invited her prospective in-laws and their close family to join our family for Sunday lunch at West Lodge.
I cannot express how impressed everyone was with the whole experience. The food, service and general ambiance was superb. I had requested, if possible, a round table which we had. However, it was my fault entirely that the table was laid for eight people when in fact I had miscounted and there were in fact nine of us! Without hesitation or any fuss an extra place was quickly set up and all was well.
I have just received a thank you note in the post from our guests and their words were “Thank you for an exceptional Sunday lunch.........”.
Please pass on our appreciation to everyone concerned.
We have, on a number of occasions, enjoyed lunch, dinner and afternoon tea at the restaurant but this occasion was very important to us and you didn’t let us down!

Good afternoon David,
I would like to congratulate you and your staff, I have stayed at West lodge hotel with my girlfriend this weekend and I have to say that we were delighted with the services provided ( room 84), the quality of the food and the general atmosphere of the place.
I hope we will have the opportunity to enjoy it again soon, specially the Crab tian with the avocado ice cream.

I just wanted to thank you for making my life so easy when all I did was make your life difficult - eg. change of date, change of times, additional room, extra people - the list is endless.
Everything went very smoothly and most importantly we managed to successfully appoint a new Headteacher. Please thank your team for being so helpful. I will definitely return in the next few weeks (with friends) to enjoy one of your afternoon teas!!Thanks again.

Nigel and I and 16 of our cousins held a family reunion at West Lodge Park Hotel last weekend and we would like to say how impressed we were with the high standard of the hotel and all of your staff there. We had a very pleasant weekend and special thanks are due to Sharon Blackgrove for all the hard work she put in to organising this for us. We have no hesitation in recommending your hotel to our friends.

Good Morning Sharon,
Thank you for arranging my Mother's Funeral Gathering last week. Everything was as I had hoped it would be - the room was just the right size and food, drinks and service perfect.Kind regards
April 2013 - Dearing Cousins Weekend
Many thanks for all the arrangements you kindly made for us which all went so well. Everyone was very impressed by the high standard of the hotel and all that you had done to make it a perfect weekend.
Nigel and I are planning to come and spend another weekend later in the year without the rest of the family.
Best wishes and thanks once again,
Teresa and Nigel Pollard
Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you and your colleagues on the event team and hospitality team for all your help in making this such a special day for my mother in law, Myrtle Bunt.
The party went very well and Myrtle had a wonderful afternoon celebrating with 4 generations of family and friends.
Please pass on our thanks to Adam and his team on the day. They could not have been more attentive and helpful- nothing was too much trouble and they ensured that everything went smoothly from start to finish. The food was delicious!
With many thanks once again
I would like to say a big thank you for the funeral reception you arranged for my family on behalf of my late mother. I would like to thank especially Chris who looked after my “advanced party” and made them feel welcome as well as an excellent job of serving the food etc. The food was delicious and it made a sombre occasion a day to remember as something special.Best wishes
It occurs to me that I have not written to express to you the thanks of Meg and myself for all your help in arranging our Diamond Wedding celebrations.
To say that it was a great success would be an understatement. It was a really outstanding evening. The room itself was perfect for our numbers, the meal was first class, the service was swift and efficient, and the speeches were just the right level of humour and emotion (we can take the credit for that!).
When you host an event like this, you tend to notice elements that are not quite right. On this occasion, not only were no such elements, but a considerable number of our guests expressed many complimentary remarks.
They thought the whole event was outstanding, and one or two indicated that they would very likely be returning with their own parties.
Whilst the staff concerned can take much credit for the outcome, I feel I must put on record the special thanks due to you. From the very start it was clear that the organisational side of things was in safe hands.
I found that dealing with you on a personal level was both friendly and reassuring. It seemed likely that all would be well on the night, and it certainly was.
Meg joins with me in thanking you for all your efforts.
Just want to say a personal "Thank you" for you input in making my birthday one i will never forget, the room we stayed in was fabulous and the hotel one of the best ever, we will definitely be returning.
We are now going to book your other hotel in Hatfield for comparison but am sure West Lodge will be our favourite.
So once again a massive thank you for a great weekend.
Just a short note to thank you for a very comfortable three nights in room 21 and for the good food and as well.
I would also like to thank you for finding the items left behind in the room! Thank you
Mr and Mrs Bryce
Below is Patrick the waiter who "made" our dining experience!!
Despite being rushed off his feet he never failed to excel in his work. Your staff are so well trained!
Patrick the waiter is exceptional he even rushed out with my shawl I left behind! I congratulate you on such a superb hotel with great history!!! Thank you.
Many thanks for sending the invoice for the Conference we held 15th-17th March.
Everyone was very pleased with the hotel, and the staff were, as usual, friendly and helpful.
With best wishesDr. Michael Feldman

Dear Mr. McIntyre
Thank you for your letter of 10th March in reference to my lunch party on 3rd March. I have pleasure in settling my final invoice.
My grateful thanks are due to Sharon Blackgrove for helping to arrange the lunch making it the wonderful success it was. It was just how I wanted the occasion to be, a family occasion in the lovely settings of West Lodge Park.
The team who looked after us on the day, headed by Will, could not have been more courteous, kind & understanding to our needs. Your staff were so pleasant and nothing was a trouble to them, and please convey to them my grateful thanks.
I look forward to visiting the West Lodge Park in the near future.

Dear Mr Beale,
I know you are aware of the excellent service we received from your team last weekend during our stay at West Lodge Park through our feedback on Trip Advisor and Travelzoo. This was a particularly special weekend as my parents grew up in New Barnet/Potters Bar before moving to Edinburgh and living there for 45 years. Your hotel was perfectly placed for our ’trip down memory lane’ with my mother and for a visit to John Lewis at Welwyn!
When we were checking out and thanking your staff at the reception desk, they mentioned that there may be another offer for your hotel about to be released. I would be very grateful if you would be able to let me know where/when this will appear so we don’t miss it.
Also I would be very grateful if you could send me details of your Christmas programme when it is available.
Once again many thanks to you and your lovely staff for making our stay so enjoyable – your team are a credit to you!

On behalf of Agnes and Hilary Rodrigues, I write this letter to say a huge thank you for making their 50th Wedding Anniversary such a memorable occasion on Saturday 23rd February.
Our day at West Lodge went extremely smoothly and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day which was a huge relief to Agnes and myself. I would like to thank you for your flexible approach given Hilary’s dementia, your friendly manner and your support in making the day very special indeed.
Your support on the planning of the event was great and it was lovely not to feel pressured into making decisions there and then, your guidance and the options you provided made it a lot less stressful.
Please may you also pass on our thanks to William and the team for their excellent friendly service on the day too. A special thank you to William who provided a friendly and approachable service on the day. He too was very accommodating, dealt with requests and changes on the day with ease. He was also very kind in getting a message to me, to let us know we had left flowers behind, which I came to collect on the Monday.
I cannot thank you and your team enough really, for the pleasure the event gave to Agnes and Hilary. So, please pass on our sincere thanks and gratitude to yourself Lisa and the team for making our day as a family a very special one indeed.
On behalf of Agnes & Hilary Rodrigues
I would like to express my appreciation for the efficient way my Birthday Party was handled on Saturday afternoon – 16th February. I thought the tables looked lovely and the arrangements were delightful in very interesting rooms.
The buffet was most enjoyable and much appreciated by all. I have had several letters from my guests expressing their thanks and suggesting that the buffet was superior to what they had experienced at the Ritz.
All my diet requiring guests had the correct food given them and the attention from your staff was second to none.
