What our customers say...

    My group of 5 ladies came to celebrate a 60th birthday. We had a lovely afternoon tea. The young lady who served us got the balance between attentiveness and intrusiveness absolutely right - we felt looked after without being constantly interrupted. The food was lovely and we took away what we could not manage without any sense of awkwardness. I will recommend to other friends without hesitation.

    The food was amazing and service just as good. Everyone was so polite and very accommodating, from the receptionist to the gentleman that showed us to our room and to the waiting staff in the bar and restaurant. Thank you for a wonderful break away for our 5th wedding anniversary. We may be back for our 6th!

    Hi Sharon.

    Just wanted to say a big thank you for the wonderful day we had last Saturday. Everything was perfect, even the weather. You obviously have good connections!! Everyone had a great time and all loved the hotel and grounds, not to mention the food. We could not find fault with anything and were delighted with the overall service.

    Thanks again and look forward to visiting West Lodge again in the near future.

    All the best

    Dear Tony & Andrew,

    Bena, Pat and I would like to thank you and Andrew, for our Afternoon Tea at West Lodge Park. We all really enjoyed it and the staff were all really friendly. It was lovely you made some time for us too, catching up on the good old days. We all have really fond memories of our working days at “The Old Hatfield Lodge” – Happy days.

    Thank you once again.

    Fondest regards,

    Bena, Pat and Karen.

    I couldn't say yesterday, as my daughter was with me,but I have booked this as an extra birthday treat for her. Do you do anything special as it is her birthday. It's no problem if you do not. I was just wondering.

    I'd also like to take this opportunity to say that my friend and I, as we drove by on Wednesday, impulsively decided to pop in for a cream tea and we both were absolutely delighted we had. The cream tea was one of the best we have had (and we have both eaten in many exclusive hotels in London and around the country), and the two staff who waited on us were fantastic. They were friendly, polite and attentive. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them. I only wish I had remembered to take their names. Hopefully, when I visit next week I will be able to see and ask them then

    I very much look forward to visiting next week.

    Dear Andrew Beale,

    Just a little note to express our sincere gratitude for the complimentary 2 night stay with dinner and breakfast for our family which we enjoyed on Easter weekend as arranged by yourself and Mike Harman of the Herts County Show.

    My 4 year old son, as Mike probably explained to you is due to start chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment in a couple of weeks time to treat his brain tumour, so for the four of us to come and spend quality time together at West Lodge Park was just wonderful and it was lovely to see him smiling - it was just what we needed!

    I must say West Lodge Park is a beautiful hotel with wonderful grounds, excellent service and quality food.

    Thank you so much for your generosity.

    Kind regards

    Lisa Lines and family

    Dear Andrew,

    Thank you for the upgrade of our room for our brief stay at West Lodge, it was good to have a lovely room overlooking the gardens and Arboretum. We really enjoyed our break, the evening meal and breakfast were excellent, with good service from the staff. We were only sorry we did not have more time to enjoy the gardens and Arboretum, as always we tried to fit in too much on a short visit.

    Thank you for your kindness, we will continue to follow Beales News via the internet.

    Best wishes to you for your future plans.

    Kind regards,

    Betty Verney.

    We have eaten and stayed at West Lodge on a number of occasions and it is because of the quality of service and the ambience that we continue to return So, although dinner has always been good, last night it was exceptionally good so we will simply have to come back again! The pianist playing during dinner adds a superb ambiance to the occasion and the can do attitude of the staff make this hotel and restaurant a first class location

    Simply the Best Thank You

    Hello Andrew, we have some builders working at home and booked two nights at West Lodge Park as respite from the dust and upheaval.

    We would like to nominate Matthew Croxford as Simply the Best. Matthew works hard and is always friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. He found us a nice table each day, remembered that we prefer elderflower pressé, and also to tell me that Ron’s meal contained nuts, which I appreciated as I do not eat nuts. In our haste to come home this morning and open the house, we have brought the form with us.

    We realise you are very busy and hope you may have a few minutes to let Matthew know he did a great job this weekend.

    We will write a separate review for the website.

    Best wishes, Mary and Ron Hunter

    It was so pleasant to have a relaxed chat in a lovely atmosphere catching up with family news. The food melted in the mouth and the Earl Grey tea was very enjoyable. A champagne afternoon tea is a definite must on a Saturday to recharge the batteries. I could become addicted to it! Thank you for making our afternoon more exciting.

    Dear Jane, Sharon and Andrew,

    A very quick note to say thanks so much for your support for our Mothers' Day Raffle. All of the mum's really appreciated the thought and we made sure that they knew the local businesses who had donated prizes. The afternoon tea at your hotel was a very popular prize!

    The school and the PTA both really appreciate the support and involvement of the local community.

    Dear Mariusz,

    Thank you for your e-mail. I have already put my review on Trip Advisor. I have to reiterate what I said in that review, which was that the West Lodge, along with Beales Hotel, is fantastic. We have been to both on several occasions and loved our stays - although very different each has its own style and appeal.

    On our visit to you this time, as always, the food was amazing and the staff friendly, efficient and extremely hard working. You should be very proud of West Lodge Park as it is indeed a wonderful retreat. We stayed this time in Room 63 which had a great view over the gardens - the only downside was the weather as we only had a quick walk around them on Saturday as it was raining!

    Once again, thanks to you all for a lovely stay. We will definitely be back.

    Kind regards
