What our customers say...

  • August 2014

    Dear Andrew

    Thank you so much for your generosity here at West Lodge Park over these past days. After what has been a most exciting but also intense period leading to the wedding our stay here has afforded us a much needed repose. We have enjoyed the gardens and trees, the Jacuzzi, the facilities of turquoise room, but more than anything the sincere warmth and welcome of your most enthusiastic staff. It’s clear that they genuinely enjoy working here and as such are always up for putting in the extra mile.

    We look forward to seeing you again at St. Mary’s Luton, hopefully not before too long.

    We now head off for two weeks into the sun far more rested than otherwise.

    With enormous thanks,


    Stephen & Tiffany Carter

    Dear Lisa,

    Thank you so much for master-minding the organisation of our Golden Wedding Celebration at West Lodge Park on 8th August.

    We had a really great evening – everything we hoped it would be and more.

    The table looked lovely, the menu, food and presentation was superb and the service excellent.

    Our guests all commented on how good everything was and enjoyed it as much as we did – Just what we wanted!

    We were pleased we’d opted for the Edward Beale room rather than the restaurant. The oval table and quieter surroundings were ideal to enable easy conversation.

    Please pass our thanks on to the chef, staff and the rest of your team.

    Yours sincerely,

    Roger & Heather Melling.

    Dear Lisa,

    Ian and I were so delighted with the way the whole day went last Tuesday. Everything was even better than we had expected. All the staff were very helpful and courteous, the service was excellent, and all our guests commented on how delicious the food was.

    Louise was very helpful in your absence, so please thank her for us, as well as everyone else who played a part that day. We also want to give you a big thank you for all your help in the run up. You were a delight to work with, and your recommendations were amazing: Paul, Hannah and Marco were all wonderful, and we would be happy to endorse them and the Hotel if needed.

    We will certainly be visiting West Lodge Park frequently, so hope to see you sometime if you're around, and will not hesitate to have other functions there in the future if the need arises.

    Best regards.

    Joanna and Ian

    Hi Andrew

    I apologise for not contacting you sooner.

    Just to say that I have just completed a Trip Advisor piece about a visit a while back to West Lodge Hotel.

    This was a party for Siobhan Dillon mother's funeral where you kindly served me salmon!

    The discrete support given by yourself and your colleagues was exact, which was really hospitable friendly and memorable in a special setting.

    Thank you indeed and every continued success.

    The Beale family are very proud of their hotel and they have much to be proud about.

    The location is excellent with easy access to the M25. There a nearby stops for the frequent bus service to Cockfosters and Hadley Wood railway station is a 20 minutes stroll.

    The setting is delightful with nothing better than a walk through the arboretum after a busy day in central London followed by tea on the terrace.

    Everything the hotel offers is of the highest quality and the focus is on providing comforts which benefit the guest ie no useless cushions or valances.

    The rooms and very well equipped with everything that is needed in plenty of space. I had a room in the lodge during my first stay and this time in the main hotel, both were delightful. My only request would be to make the curtains thicker to block out the early morning sun.

    The staff are professional and attentive. I could not ask for more.

    As frequent travellers for both business and pleasure my wife and I stay in lots of hotels. We can say that WLP is the best value we have encountered. Thank you.

    Hi Dave

    I am writing to you from our lovely room, which you kindly offered us as a free upgrade. And we also had a lovely bottle of chilled Prosecco and even a hand signed anniversary card waiting for us too. The whole experience, including the evening meal was fantastic throughout.

    I would like to personally thank you for arranging this for us, it made our stay really special and we would have no hesitation recommending West Lodge to friends and family, and look forward to staying here again ourselves!

    Please pass our thanks on to your team, including Yianni in the restaurant, and the ladies on reception, who were all great.

    Kind regards

    We had a very nice afternoon on Sunday and were blessed with a lovely sunny afternoon. We enjoyed drinks outside with the extra nibbles ordered and then the a lovely tea. The hotel was very busy with two weddings and had a great atmosphere. Thank you for your help in making this such an enjoyable occasion. Please give our best regards to Sharon.
