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
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
FUNERAL RECEPTION FOR MRS EDITH BLAKE
Thank you for the reception you arranged yesterday. It ran like clockwork. The tea was excellent and the staff were attentive without being obtrusive. The King Charles room is a beautiful venue. We all had a good family reunion.Thank you again
August 2012 - Stanley's gathering
On behalf also of Valerie, I would like to say a huge thank you to you and your staff for all the hard work you put into making our gathering for Dad on Thursday such a great success.
When we arrived from the crematorium I worked down the queue for the buffet to remarks of "lovely buffet", "delicious food", "that salmon is lovely". The Buffet looked wonderful, colourful and very inviting.
When I entered the main room there was a happy buzz of chatter and laughter and those who were not part of one of the "groups" so to speak, had been gathered in and included.
Dad would have been delighted - I could imagine him sitting to one side viewing the proceedings and smiling happily.Many thanks once again.
Re: Gathering - Wednesday 16 May 2012
I didn't have a chance to thank you yesterday for excellent buffet and facilities you provided for the gathering after my mothers funeral.
It all went as well could be expected and the services we received from West Lodge Park were just what we needed.Best wishes
I just wanted to say thank you for your kindness and efficiency when helping us with the preparations for the funeral tea for the Aylard family on Tuesday 24th April.
The sandwiches and cakes were lovely, the tea and coffee kept coming and the three members of staff looking after us were excellent. They were friendly and polite, on the ball and couldn’t have been more helpful. Please pass on our grateful thanks to them.Yours sincerely
29th April 2012
I and my family wish to thank you very much for the way in which the Funeral Gathering for my husband was conducted on 24th April. My daughter-in-law, Carol, who was looking after the guests until I and my sons returned from the committal was full of praise, not only for the organisation but the sympathetic, helpful and efficient way in which the staff carried out their duties.
When I arrived it was clear that the guests were being very well looked after and that an excellent tea was being served. I am sure everyone there was very appreciative. There was plenty of room for everyone and this event was made as pleasurable as such an occasion can be.Yours very sincerely
25th March 2012
Thank you so much for organising our gathering following my wife’s/our mother’s funeral on Thursday 22nd March.
All our friends and family were very complimentary of the setting, refreshments and service received from the hotel and staff. It was a relief for us to know that everything was in hand and being taken care of. We would be grateful if you could pass our sincere thanks to all your colleagues who helped us on the day.With kind regards
My thanks go to you and your team for my stepmother’s funeral gathering on Thursday
The room was just right and good food etc-it was a professional and accommodating service
Please pass our great thanks to Gina who was immense and kept the show on the road with great patience and stamina!
I am not sure if I thanked in person on the day but she was a gemBest wishes
Function on 27th January
Just a quick e-mail to say how pleased we were with the function we held for my deceased brother's funeral gathering on 27th January. The afternoon tea was excellent and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The whole process ran very smoothly which was very comforting after the stress of the funeral and looking after my 86 year old parents.
I would like to single out the young man who spent some time serving drinks (I can't remember his name). He overheard me saying that I had forgotten my sat nav and did not know the way back to my brother's house, he immediately offered to get me a copy of a map to help. I thought that this was very good customer service. I did not need the map in the end as I was able to follow someone else.Thanks again
Gathering - Wednesday 1 February 2012
just a short note to say thank you for the arrangements on the 1st February. Your staff were excellent and the way they conducted themselves ensured there was no sense of intrusion at what was a very sensitive time.
Please pass on my thanks to all those involved as it most definitely made a difference.Yours Sincerely
Mr. Speroni rang this morning
He was very pleased with the arrangements made for the funeral gathering in the John Evelyn Suite yesterday.
All the staff were very helpful and he asked me to pass on his thanks to everyone.Regards
Meant to message you sooner, but have been struck down with tonsillitis all of this week - must've been the stress of everything catching up with me.
Anyway, just wanted to thank you and all the hotel staff for everything you did to make Monday go so smoothly. Such a heartbreaking time, I'm sure you can understand, but everyone's professionalism ensured yet another successful occasion your hotel.Kindest regards
Many thanks indeed for all your help and advice in arranging the above which took place following my mother's funeral.
The general organisation together with the refreshments and assistance of the staff during the afternoon was excellent.
Just wondered if I would be receiving a final account (in debit or credit!) in due course.
Thanks again.Graham Parrott
Gathering for Reginald Beale 8 August 2011
Thank you for organizing everything so well on Monday. It was just as I had hoped it would be with good food and very pleasant staff - and a nice relaxed atmosphere.Best Wishes
We must thank you and your staff for making yesterday’s reception a fitting finale to father’s long life.
Everyone enjoyed the buffet and the very pleasant surroundings which were augmented by the efficiency and kindness of all concerned.Yours sincerely,
27th January 2011
Thank you and all members of staff who attended at my Mother's gathering at West Lodge after her funeral on the 27th January 2011. All who were there thought the service given by all the staff was superb as did my husband and I. From the door being opened for us on arrival, the coats being taken from us on the way in, to the discreet service being given when the food was served everyone’s needs were catered for.
The food was delicious, and, when a friend of mine mentioned she was a celiac, special food was prepared for her beautifully on a slate platter.
We have had many a wedding reception in the family at your Hotel and it is still as charming as before with staff to match as well as the wonderful cuisine.
Thank you so much.Yours sincerely
14th Jan 2011
Please find enclosed cheque for £37.50 in full and final settlement of the balance outstanding on the account for the gathering held at your hotel on 14th January 2011.
Please relay our thanks to Helen, her team, and all the staff who looked after us so well on Thursday. Everything was perfect and our guests were very impressed with the venue and the buffet.Kind regards,
3rd July 2010
Just to thank you for all your help and effort to make the 3rd Sept run so smoothly, my family and I did appreciate it. It was everything Harry would have wanted.Yours sincerely,
5th July 2010
I would just like to say a big "thank you" to you and the staff for the splendid service and kindness shown by all at the Celebration of my dad's life (Fred Kloss) on Monday 5th July 2010.
A strange thing to say, but everyone enjoyed the event immensely and this was due to the excellent buffet and service given.
Please could you pass on our thanks to the rest of the staff.Kind regards

Funeral gathering on 19.4.10 following cremation of my wife Margaret Smith
I have just realised that, owing to pressure of events, I have never written to thank you for the excellence of the gathering mentioned above. I was anxious that it should be a celebration of my wife’s life and her wonderful personality, not a gloomy reflection on death or sanctimonious spirituality of that kind. I need not have worried : the whole event, the surroundings, the catering, and the background management generally were as near perfection as we could have dared hope for. This is not only my view but is shared by Mrs Jane Wynn who made most of the arrangements with you on my behalf and, to judge from the comments made to me, by virtually everyone else present.
So thank you all very much, and perhaps you will pass my comments on to all the staff concerned.Yours sincerely,
As a family we would like to thank you for making the gathering for dad so special.
Everything was perfect, even the weather. Your staff were attentive at all times and the food was faultless.Our thanks again
We just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated all the support and excellent service we received from you and your team on the day of Sams funeral.
We had an unexpected guest on a glutted free diet and the kitchen impressively produced a plate of food for her, seemingly, without and effort. Everyone was so kind and helpful, they made what was a difficult day for us much easier.Our very best wished to you and all at West Lodge
Re: GATHERING FOR FUNERAL OF MAX ROBINSON
Thank you once again for all the arrangements yesterday. In the end the number was exactly 36 and all went very smoothly. The room was fine and the catering and bar staff as well as those on reception and the doorman were all really helpful and we couldn't have wished for more.With all best wishes,
