We have certain conditions attached to the use of our function rooms, and for the benefit of all and to ensure that there are no misunderstandings:
- We strongly recommend that our customers take out an insurance policy against cancellation, we are happy to supply details of available policies.
- Minimum numbers apply and this is the amount which will be invoiced for unless your party exceeds this.
- No outside caterers are allowed to be used at West lodge Park Hotel.

- Prices are subject to change. The prices at the time the event takes place will be applied.
- Fireworks by special permission of the Hotel Management (must be discharged by 9pm at the latest).

What our customers say...
Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality - all your staff were gracious, caring and professional.
The meeting room served us very well. Hence a new booking for the 2nd September (all the trustees and I staying the night) and staff joining us for a Philo planning day on the 3rd. (thank you for all the wonderful bedrooms but could we all stay in the main house - a request from Terry + Juanita).
Andrew, THANK YOU so much for taking the time to host us for a wonderful lunch yesterday - it was much appreciated having the opportunity to talk leisurely with you.
And THANK YOU so much for the tour of the Arboretum…WOW! fascinating, educational and quite inspiring.
Look forward to seeing you in September.
Thank you so much for such an enjoyable stay at your excellent hotel West Lodge Park.
It was good to catch up with you again over a delicious lunch which we appreciated very much. We also thoroughly enjoyed the hour spent with you guiding us around the trees in the Arboretum. Your knowledge concerning the many species of trees was astounding and very informative.
We had a very productive time with Philo Trust staff and Trustees
Your staff looked after us extremely well - we did enjoy the variety of food served to us which was of excellent quality and the attention to detail was superb.
With grateful thanks and blessings

Thank you so much for the use of Magnolia rooms. It was so good for us to give the staff team a pleasant space to get away from the office to think about the future of our organisation.
They came up with lots of great ideas and I am sure that the relaxed setting help them to be creative. They are a very hard working and committed team and the free room left us able to show our appreciation by paying for a delicious three course lunch, in your restaurant.
Please pass on our thanks to you hospitality team for their good service.

Thank you very much for your help and support throughout the session.
Everybody was so helpful and friendly, we look forward to seeing you all in September.
Thank you and very best wishes,

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.

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.

Thank you very much for your message. I too was sorry that we didn’t meet on the week-end, but there was a lot going on. I was going to write to you to say how pleased we all were with the hotel – the staff were friendly and helpful as ever, the atmosphere pleasant and relaxed, and the gardens beginning to show signs of spring. We had some sunny hours, which were glorious, but it is lovely there in any weather.
It felt very good to be back at West Lodge Park, and I think all the participants enjoyed their stay there – they love coming.Warm greetings,

Thank you for the positive feedback.
We were also very impressed with the support those at West Lodge gave us from the gentleman who held the door open for us whilst we brought all our kit in - to Gina and her team who prepared the room and made us feel as if nothing was too much trouble.
Look forward to working together in the future.Kind regards,

We work very hard to provide our clients and associates with a superior service and we felt both your hotel and the team very much reflect our ethos.
Should we be looking for a venue in the future, or should any of our clients ask us for a recommendation, we will, of course, be giving West Lodge Park Hotel serious consideration.
Thank you again for all your help in making our event a success and please thank your team on our behalf.

How nice to be wonderful JKind regards,

Thank you very much for your assistance in organising what turned out to be a great night on Monday. All went very smoothly and ahead of schedule. Please pass on my personal thanks to Will, who was extremely attentive during the evening and we couldn't ask for more.
Adam O'Brien didn't realise he had overnight accommodation and therefore didn't stay. His room is obviously on the final invoice, but I wondered whether there was anything you could do for us on this occasion? Pretty please?Kind Regards,

Highbury Grove School Conference
I am writing to thank you and your staff for organising our school conference. It all went really well – even the Private Dining! I’m sure that we gave you plenty of headaches before we arrived. We enjoyed our stay and quite a few colleagues wished it could have been for longer. I am sure that we will be in touch with you again and then we will be able to enjoy the new restaurant as well.
The team who prepared everything for us at the weekend were efficient, calm and very professional. Every request we had was dealt with very quickly, they were a credit to West Lodge Park, and I hope that you will be able to pass our thanks onto them. This time next year we will have moved into a brand new school, it’s a very exciting time for us and we were able to finalise some of our plans for several aspects of the school. At present we are working in cold and dark conditions as the new school is literally being built around us – hoardings everywhere block out the light in classrooms and on the pathways. It was so lovely going into the John Evelyn room on Friday with the sun streaming through the windows and the lovely grounds to walk in and look at as we worked. It made us realise what awful conditions we have worked in and most certainly cheered us up. We felt refreshed and invigorated, even though we only spent a few hours with you.
Please pass on our thanks to your team. We look forward to our next conference with you.Best wishes
We would like to thank you and your staff for all your help in making our 40th Wedding Anniversary Lunch on 12th October such a success. From the outset you guided and advised on all aspects of how we could achieve the best from our day and we certainly did. Not only was the venue such a lovely choice but the sun shone all day so we were also able to enjoy the grounds. The staff on duty were friendly and very helpful, and the rooms looked lovely especially when we had added the final personal touches. I would also like to thank the hotel for allowing me to change in one of the bedrooms which also allowed me to calm myself before our guests arrived.
God willing if we make our 50th The West Lodge Park will be our first choice for our celebrations.Many many thanks once again.
John and Audrey Tipper
My company was at your hotel last week for 2 days and I can honestly say it was absolutely perfect. We had a meeting last Thursday and an overnight stay with a further meeting on Friday.
The service at both lunch and dinner was excellent. Particularly at dinner! The food was great. Having recently been to a hotel in Gerard's Cross where we all found the food to be very bland. The rooms were nice too and seeing as we all checked in at once we weren't waiting for ages to obtain our keys. I had lunch outside on the patio on Friday as it was a beautiful day and again I couldn't fault anything. I will definitely be using your facilities again. Thank you to you and your team.
It's not often that people thank you and tend to only contact you to complain so I thought I'd drop you an email. I work in an industry where we receive complaints as we dig up the roads, but we have to carry out our essential gas works so when we receive letters of thank you, it makes all the hard work worth while.Thanks again.

I would just like to thank you for all of your help with arranging yesterday and all of the staff there for going out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. It was a brilliant service and we will defiantly be coming back.

Just to thank you and all the staff who where always helpful and cooperative from the moment I started communicating with West Park Lodge Hotel.
You and Sharon were great in advising me on the menu, the arrangement in each room etc.

Gen Re Treaty Offsite 25th February 2008
I am writing to thank you for the hospitality we received during our event at West Lodge Park between 25th and 27th February.
After the event I asked my colleagues for some feedback on the venue and all I received were positive compliments! We all felt the venue has a much more personal feel than other conference venues we have used previously which really suited the mood of our meeting. The grounds were stunning, the hotel and restaurant facilities were great and more importantly the staff were outstanding, nothing was too much trouble and every request was met with a smile and professionalism. Please could you extend our thanks to those who were looking after us over the 3 days.
I will definitely keep West Lodge Park in mind for future events and wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to others.Many Thanks

I just wanted to say a big thank you on behalf of Alastair and myself ˆ we REALLY enjoyed our stay.
The staff were all fantastic; the food delicious and the ambience great. Adam was the manager for our stay and he was very personable and willing to help with all our many wants. Nothing was too much trouble.
I arrived early with Anthea Cowen on the Friday afternoon and we were plied with tea and biscuits in front of the roaring log fire in the reception and enjoyed welcoming the rest of the team sipping tea and enjoying each others company. Alastair arrived after work in time for his evening meal. Thank you Andrew.
We had the Oak Room which was beautifully decorated; the evening meal was delicious and served to us by a very friendly young man who was still as cheerful when he served us breakfast! Great service. Michelle who had welcomed us on Friday evening came back on duty on Saturday morning and she was also great.
So as you see your staff were superb. Thank you for facilitating our stay and to Sue and Helen and others that organised everything so well, in advance of our stay.
Bless you and thank you Andrew for your personal letters to us all; such a special touch in the business of all you do.
I know all the elders and their spouses will want to send their own personal thanks but can I say in advance on their behalf one big thank you ˆ it was so good to all get together and share a special time after such a very difficult year.With our grateful thanks and our love
Karen and Alastair Carron.
