What our customers say...
Sharp Watson Celebration
Thank you your help in planning our celebration on Saturday. It was a most successful and relaxed day, helped by your helpful and attentive staff. Please thank Patrick and his team for their attention to detail and pleasant and unobtrusiveness, which led to everything running smoothly.
With many thanks
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
Conroy/Vernon Wedding 16/10/2014
We are just back from honeymoon and wanted to thank your team and all the staff at West Lodge Park for making our wedding on 16th October 2014 a most enjoyable and memorable day. Having been let down at by our original venue with just a month to go, we really appreciated the way you embraced our plans and requirements with such genuine enthusiasm, especially at such short notice. We were delighted that you provided the full a la carte menu for our wedding party to choose from on the day and this certainly made the right impression with our guests. Our dietary specials were well catered for, including the special request for gluten free chocolate brownie dessert for the bride – thank you! You made us feel like the most important people on the planet on our special day, the memories of which will live with us forever. We will definitely return to West Lodge Park, whether it’s quiet dining for two, or a more lavish celebration and we will certainly recommend West Lodge Park to our friends and associates, as will the rest of our wedding party.
Thank you again for all your help.
Pamela and John Vernon
(Conroy/Vernon Wedding 16th October 2014)
Thank you so much for all ur hard work in setting up our wedding. It went marvellously without a hitch. Everyone said it looked very elegant and thoroughly enjoyed the night.
Sue and Mark
Just a short note to say thank you for your contribution to our very happy and successful day.
All the guest, especially the vegan / vegetarian contingency were really impressed by the food and service. All in all a great couple of days. Superb menu and execution thereof.
Jill and Adrian Mc Grath
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.
Joanna and Ian
We just wanted to thank you for all your efforts in making it a perfect day for our wedding. It was truly memorable and everyone seemed to have a great time. Will send you some photos when we get back,
Mel and CA
Hi Wayne & James
I have just spoken to Mrs Martin, she said that everything yesterday was just perfect, the food was outstanding and that she would mark it 11 out of 10! She was really impressed and wants us to keep up what we are doing !
Just to say thank you and everything went very well on Friday
Paul and Heather
Thanks for everything, Taylor-Grant wedding
This is just to say how much we appreciated all your efforts and hard work in making our wedding day a truly happy and memorable occasion. Everyone has said how much they enjoyed coming to West Lodge, how attractive, comfortable and relaxing it was, how helpful the staff were, especially Krys, and how good the food was. There was a really nice atmosphere, which we shall remember for years to come.
Anthony and I had a lovely honeymoon in York, with blue skies throughout, and lots of little trips and excursions. It was a wonderful way to wind down and enjoy each other's company after the hectic rush of the wedding preparations.
We should have the wedding photographs by the end of next week and I hope to send you some.
Once again, very many thanks for your help, and my very best wishes,
Matt & Siobhan's wedding celebration
Many thanks to you and your colleagues for helping to make it such a pleasant and memorable event. The food was lovely, the staff were helpful and kind, and everything went swimmingly (apart, of course, for the wasps - fortunately no-one was stung - hope you don't get plagued with them next year).
Thank you so much for organising such a wonderful Wedding Anniversary for us! We had a wonderful time.
Thank you again for all you did on our Wedding Day and the weeks beforehand – we have such amazing, perfect memories.
Lots of love
Eve, Joe & Toby Fox
Dear Sharon (+ Whole Team at West Lodge Park),

Every single guest commented about how fabulous you all are and how stunning your venue is – we will be back!!
Thank you for giving us the best day of our lives … to date!

Robert's Wedding at West Lodge Park Hotel on 27 July 2013
Thank you for your commitment in making our Nicola's day a memorable one.
The waiting staff were amazing, especially Jonathan, who some of our guests could not stop talking about. He was very polite, well-spoken and very attentive. Please pass on our special thanks to him.
Again, many thanks for your kindness and maybe one day in the future we may do business with you again.
With kindest regards,
Sue Latouche & Les Roberts
Tiplady Wedding Celebration – Saturday 6 July:
I wanted to say thank you for last Saturday.
We had a fantastic day and West Lodge did you proud. We expected the good surroundings, the good food et al but the thing that helped it go so well was the helpfulness and attitude of your team, Put simply, they were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. They were courteous, attended to little things when we raised them and were altogether responsive and went the extra mile. Thanks to Will and his team. They were all just great.
Thank you too for all your effort. We are fairly regular visitors to WLP for tea and the like. But we were so pleased that we chose you for this special occasion. We expected it to be a good day but your staff and service made it special.
It all went off wonderfully apart from the fact I had to have a tooth extracted on the morning of our anniversary which meant I had to miss out on the gorgeous food and drink - I mean to make up for it later though when my mouth heals! Everything was perfect - I felt so lousy I left everything in Will's more than capable hands and sat through it all (most unlike me!) Hilary and Katy (my two other daughters) took over the hostess role and I don't think I was missed.
It was a very happy wedding and I don't think I've ever seen a happier bride and groom. Everyone enjoyed themselves although because a lot of the guests were elderly they left early before the cakes and cheese so I shall be posting the cake boxes on. The food was delicious - the canapes I could have eaten all night but the wine sadly was out of bounds (well, most of it!)
Everyone commented on your lovely staff especially Will and the chappie with the white glasses in the restaurant who was so kind when I had to go to bed and miss out on my anniversary dinner.
Thanks for such a lovely time and we'll see you soon!
John and Jo Gething
PS During the evening some of the grandchildren took the boat out on the pond and they took some hilarious photos which have gone round the world on facebook. Surprisingly, no-one fell in!
Caitriona and Mike Wedding
Sharon thank you for all your support for the wedding - we loved the day venue and staff (and planner) a big thank you
We were very happy with the venue and team on the day and would like to thank them all. Please pass on my personal thanks to Will who allowed me to enjoy the day and made a huge difference to me personally
Just a quick note to say thank you to you and your team for making our wedding fantastic!
You were utterly professional, your judgement was spot on and such a lovely gracious team.
Thank you so much!
Hayley & Simon Cole
30th August 2012
A belated big thank you for all of your hard work in ensuring that Melita and I had a very special evening celebration on the 11th August.
Special thanks for your patience, advice and efficient attention to detail.

A little token of our appreciation is enclosed to enjoy and share as you wish.Best wishes and many thanks
Dan Manning & Melita D’Souza
Just had to email you to thank you all at West Lodge for making Samantha and Jonathan's wedding day so wonderful!
Everything flowed beautifully and Adam and his fantastic team were superb! In fact we cannot thank Adam enough for just always being in the right place at the right time. As soon as we saw Adam, we just knew everything would go well!Thank you all at West Lodge once again!
Amanda and Paul Arno
I want to write and formally thank you and all the staff at The West Lodge whilst Saturday's wedding is still fresh in our minds!
We really cannot praise the staff enough for all their kindness and amazing close attention to detail. From setting up the venue the day before, throughout the wedding and onto the clear up the day after, nothing was too much trouble. We never had to seek anyone out; a senior member of the team was always at our side to calmly and professionally deal with all enquiries.
Considering that you cater for weddings all the time, it felt as though ours was special and unique to the hotel staff. We have received such compliments on everything from the quality of the food, to the service and of course to the beautiful marquee and grounds. How you even managed to arrange beautiful weather in the worst summer on record is perhaps the most amazing trick up your sleeve!!!
Adam orchestrated the event seamlessly and I wish I could remember the names of the other two female members of staff who were also around to help set up and be a friendly face to work alongside. We really cannot fault a single aspect and consider our experience with the West Lodge Park to be excellent value for money.
Thank you for ensuring that one of the best days of our lives was so memorable.With our very best wishes,
Theresa and Toby Luxford

Dear Mr. Beale,
I write to congratulate you on your fantastic hotel once again following our wedding at West Lodge, Cockfosters on 21st July 2012.
Having been to West Lodge many times over the past 10 years, we held our engagement party there a couple of years ago and once deciding the time was right to get married, we then began to explore our options, viewing many venues.
West Lodge stood head and shoulders above its competitors in terms of the service provided, the quality of food, its location and the beautiful grounds.
The main reason for this email is to pass onto you our sincere thanks to all the staff, in particular to Sharon, our wedding co-ordinator.
She was amazing. She made us feel so special, nothing was ever too much trouble. Her professional approach and the way she balances this with being a down to earth 'normal' person, who genuinely made us feel as though she really cared, was amazing. Not only did she organise everything perfectly, she offered support when things were getting stressful, she was quick to provide advice on choices that we needed to make and made me (a very fussy person!) feel totally relaxed in the hotel's ability to provide us with what was to be the best day of our lives. She deserves all the praise she gets.
I would also like to mention how unbelievably efficient Will was on the day. I think it was Adam who was in charge when we got engaged and he was so good at what he did, I was very concerned that Will be live up to those standards. Well I can honestly say that he did! The qualities required to do the job he did for us include patience, confidence, knowledge, good manners and calmness and he excelled in all of these. From the moment I arrived at lunchtime, to the few left standing at 1 / 2am, he was on hand. He really did an amazing job.
Finally, all the staff, from bar staff, to kitchen staff, to waiters, were so professional. They seemed to know immediately that I was the Groom, if I asked for something, it was provided, promptly and professionally.
We will of course be back in the near future!Many Thanks,
ps: please feel free to share any of our comments with staff or the wider community
Dear Mr Beale
We were married at your beautiful hotel on Sunday 6th May 2012 and now writing to say a really big thank you to all the staff that made our day the most memorable one. From the help and sound advice from Sharon Blackgrove who organised our wedding and the reception, excellent job, the professional, efficient and calming influence of Will and Adam on the day who made sure everything went to plan, the most elegant gorgeous meal prepared by the chefs in the kitchen, the waitress staff who delivered the most professional friendly, excellent service throughout the whole afternoon and evening and let's not forget the bar staff who ensured no one went thirsty on the day.
Please pass on our thanks and sincere gratitude to all the staff who made our day so perfect. They are a credit to the hotel and should be very proud of what they achieve.
We will be visit again very soon.Kindest regards
Mr and Mrs A Baca
14th January 2012
I wish to thank your staff for the way they managed the wedding and reception of my son Ryan and his new wife Leigh-Anne held on 14th January 2012.
I would especially like to thank Gina Ablett who made the whole day go off so smoothly despite the changes of timing of the fireworks. “A splendid day” - thank you.Mrs. Georgina Jones
4th January 2012
This is a very overdue note to thank you and your staff for the wonderful job you did for our wedding on 7th October.
In fact, our ‘thank-yous’ have been very much delayed for various reasons and we were still trying to ‘catch up’ along with all the Christmas mail!!
We lost count of the number of compliments we received about the venue, the food!! (those lamb cutlets were a great hit!) and the service. It is very clear from all the comments, phone calls and written notes that everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and greatly appreciated all that every member of staff involved did for them.
We ourselves enjoyed the whole experience – from our first meeting with you, right through till the end of our stay over the weekend.
We had a great day – from beginning to end!
Many thanks again to you – and all staff involved – for helping to make our ‘big day’ so memorable.
With kind regardsAndrea & Tony McTeare
I feel I should start this e-mail with an apology for the delay in contacting you nearly a week after the event - we've been busy and a bit tired!
The event was a great success and was enjoyed by all the guests, not least the bride and groom. We were not as organised on arrival as we should have been - our fault - but the setting and facilities were excellent and we could not have wished for better and more appropriate weather in which to enjoy the surroundings. The meal was superb and you and your colleagues were friendly and very efficient.
RegardsRichard and Pat Fradley
Seven weeks on, with nearly everything put away and all the bills paid, we are just writing to thank you personally for overseeing Claire and Ryan's Wedding.
It really was the most wonderful day, but only due to the amount of detailed organisation you and your team put in behind the scenes.
Although it seemed a daunting operation to us, you all made it run like clockwork and, when the weather dictated at the last minute that the BBQ would have to be held indoors, everything ran brilliantly, even down to Gina's subtle provision of a box of tissues during the lunchtime speeches!
We have had amazing feedback from guests and everyone enjoyed themselves - this is confirmed by the video and hundreds of photos showing all the guests looking relaxed and having fun.
My mother enjoyed the lunchtime lamb so much that she's planning a lunch party at West Lodge next June, and I will be in touch about that a little later!
I am sure the word 'wedding' to you means 'OMG! not another ******* one', but 'thank you' for making ours so very special for us all.
Again, very many thanks,
Kindest regardsMalcolm and Jane Emmerson
I've just tried to call the number on the website but there was no reply.
I just wanted to let you know that after much thought and deliberation, myself and my partner have decided to get married at Hanbury Manor in Ware rather than at West Lodge Park. You were kindly holding Saturday 23rd June 2012 for us, so I just wanted to let you know of our decision. Hanbury Manor just works slightly better for us in terms of room layout and the overall package on offer.
I'd like to thank you very much for your help. I'd just like to say how informative you were and also like to thank you for your patience too, I saw lots of venues and I can easily say that you were the best person I met with in terms of talking through details and the show around too. I work in events too, so it's always nice when you meet someone who knows their stuff!
I had been speaking with the Enfield registrar, do you know if I need to inform them to release the date for me too?
Thanks very much for your efforts,Lyndsey Day.
8th July 2011
Just a short note to say thank you so very much for all your help, advice and guidance in organizing our wedding reception on the 8th July 2011 at West Lodge Park hotel…at very short notice!
The day went off wonderfully, from the red carpet on arrival through to the lovely food, reception rooms and hospitality from all the staff at the hotel.
Everyone at the hotel was so helpful and considerate throughout the entire day. However, Adam deserves a special mention for his helpfulness and professionalism, the smooth running of the whole event and nothing was too much trouble. Will, who ran the bar almost single handedly, constantly running to the main bar for additional orders until 12:00 midnight was also an absolute star.
The complimentary bedroom, room 36, was lovely and we just wished we could have stayed longer!
All in all a fantastic occasion with wonderful memories that will last a life time. Thank you and all the team at the West Lodge Park Hotel for making this dream come true in less than two weeks!
Kindest regardsJames & Nataliya
Murphy & Burnstone - Wedding Reception - Saturday 4 June - WLPS
Ronan Murphy rang to say a big thank you. Everything went according to plan. The food was very, very good and he felt the layout of the suite worked really well too. He was greatly impressed with Adam who ran the event extremely well. Those of his guests who were resident were also extremely pleased with the hotel - they really enjoyed the rooms and especially commented on the views from their windows.

Dear Mr Seward,
On Sunday March 20th, we held our wedding reception in your beautiful hotel. We had a wonderful day and most importantly, so did our guests. We would like to say special thanks to Sharon Blackgrove, who did a truly excellent job. She was always very professional, very efficient, genuinely warm and helpful. We don't believe she could have done a better job.
We would also like to thank Gina, Will and all the other members of staff working that day. Once again, they were all very professional, attentive and a credit to your hotel.
Please can you pass on our sincere thanks to all of the above, who helped make our day so special.
We would not hesitate to use your hotel again for a special occasion.
Many Thanks !Paul and Pia Roy Hardicre

Re wedding of Mandy Sasia and Paul Clegg
Now the dust has settled my husband and I felt we really must write to thank you and all your team for making Mandy and Paul’s day so special.
With such a beautiful venue we always knew the day would go well but were delighted with the extra care and attention to detail that your team produced. Special mention must of course go to Adam, who’s professionalism ensured that any slight hiccup was soon resolved and the proceedings continued seamlessly. We really must thank him for his outstanding service and continued good humour throughout the day and evening.
Several guests who had never been to West Lodge before were so thrilled with the day they are contemplating using your services for their offspring, so hopefully we will have brought you some extra business !
I am enclosing a snapshot taken as the happy couple were making their vows which I feel gives the lovely atmosphere created by your hard working team.
Thank you again,With best wishes from
Helen and Stefano Sasia
A warm thank you from all of us for the excellent hospitality at West Lodge Park for the guests at the Chamberlain/Jaffer wedding. We were very well looked after at every stage and would be happy to use WLP again and recommend it to others, and the sister hotel, Beales, where the bride stayed the night before the wedding.
We are 100 per cent sure that we chose the right hotel of the ten or so we looked at. The family touch was excellent.
I would like to send a personal thank you to the lady with short dark hair who supervised breakfast on Monday 19th and the late barman on the 18th as well as to you. They were brilliant.
Best wishesAnne Chamberlain
Cheryl and Andrew’s wedding June 13th 2010 West Lodge Park
Sorry for the delay in sending this letter.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you from myself and Jennie and everyone at West Lodge for looking after us on Cheryl and Andrew’s wedding day.
Thank you so much for all your planning and also to Adam who looked after us on the day.
The day went beautifully and everyone had a lovely time.

Wedding 3rd July 2010
It is with absolute delight that I draft this email to you and Adam (including the Ops Team from Saturday). We had a wonderful wedding day and it is with huge thanks to you for the preparation and Adam for executing an amazing schedule on the day. Whatever problem posed to arise Adam was right there to take control and keep us calm so we could enjoy our day. We couldn't have asked for more. The service from Adam and his team was faultless and everyone commented on the food being fabulous and the attention to our guests was excellent and hugely appreciated by all.
We are so impressed with the professional service offered by West Lodge Park!
Our biggest thanks again for a memorable and magical day.
With warmest regards,Sacha Kirsten
5th June 2010
I am writing to say a big thank you to you for all your kind assistance and organisation of our wedding day, the personal touches you applied were very clearly evident on the day which were very much appreciated. Please pass on our thanks to all the staff who attended to us and especially the chef on the day, also I must mention Adam Brooks who was brilliant and kept his cool at all times on the day. I can honestly say that it all went beautifully. I hardly touched the food because the nerves got the better of me, however, the starter - the mushroom tart - was delectable! Many of our friends and family reported to us how fantastic the food was.
The John Evelyn room is definitely understated in your photo gallery on the web site, the way in which the room was turned around for the three parts of our day was excellent, even with 60 people we felt that it was a big party and the ambiance created by the lighting etc...I could go on! Needless to say, we will be recommending West Lodge Park hotel to everyone!
One last thing - please let Ron know that I got the biscuits and was very touched by his lovely gesture and thank you as it made me feel very special.
Thank you again.
With very best wishes from,Mrs Hatice Elliott.......now not a headless chicken!!!
12th June 2010
Just a short note to say thank you to you and the team. We had an amazing day on Saturday. It really was perfect and your team made it very special for everyone. Thanks particularly go to Adam who was a star for the whole day.
From start to end it has been a pleasure working with you and I won’t hesitate to come back next time we have a good excuse for a truly wonderful party.
Yours sincerelyZoe Blake

This is just a quick email regarding our wedding on 20th December 2008. As you are aware, we had a few issues in the build up to the wedding but we would like to thank you and West Lodge for a superb day. We would be very grateful if you could pass on our personal thanks to Georgina and her team of staff on the day. They all worked extremely hard and looked after our every need. Special thanks must go to Georgina, she was so friendly and professionalism personified. Thanks again to everyone involved for a lovely wedding.Best wishes

Apologies for not contacting you earlier, but will send a formal thank you in the post with a photo when they have been sorted!
Basically, i just wanted to say how fantastic our day was in part due to the brilliant service our family, friends and us received form your staff. Please pass on our thanks, I know we kept asking for a bit more speed after the main meal, hope we did not annoy them too much! (they said they have not seen a party eat so quickly - think the number of children caused that!). Anyway, the setting was lovely and the weather just about held out although it was rather windy, still the Sunday was a zillion times worse.
Thank you again for your superb organizing. All the feedback we have had is how great the venue was, a credit to your establishment and the friendly people who work there.Nicky

Re: Baker-Mann Wedding
All of our guests said they had the most fantastic day here on 2nd August at the above wedding and that all of the staff were amazing. In particular Adam, whose professionalism and attention to detail were without fault. Nothing was too much trouble for Adam and even at the end of the evening he was still looking after everybody in exactly the same way as he had done at the beginning of the day. A brilliant day was had by all.
Kind regardsMargaret Baker

Golden Wedding - Good morning, Sharon,
Just to let you know that yesterday was truly memorable for us all. Georgina and her team were extremely efficient and West Lodge did us proud. We'll send you more feedback when we have caught our breath and got back to normal, whatever that is.Yours, Brian and Norma
Just a brief note to thank you and all the staff of West Lodge Park for the contribution you made to a most special day. Sarah and Christopher had their 'dream wedding'. The food was superb, the setting perfect and the staff professional.
I must also thank you personally for organising the whole event - not easy I know, Godfrey (the perfectionist) was impressed - an event in itself!! Hope to see you again soon.Janice and Godfrey Mann
Just a note to say a very big thank you for all your help and advice, arranging our wedding dinner. Everything was perfect, thanks to your planning the meal was lovely and the staff very helpful and we cannot praise the hotel enough.
We look forward to any future visits and we will certainly recommend you to all our friends. Thanks again.Gill and Chris Armitt.
Thanks so much. Can't stress again how utterly brilliant you guys were. I have to say a special thanks to you for sticking with us, and sorting it all out amidst the chaos - and Adam - what a professional and so calm and organised.
Thanks again for making it a dream day - it really was awesome. We'll be back for anniversaries to come.
Just back at work and wanted to thank you so so much for all your work before the wedding and on the day - and the rest of the team- they were fab. All our guests were so impressed with the hotel the food the staff , breakfast the rooms - everything! It was even better than we could have hoped - even the awful august weather abated for the day! It was relaxed and elegant and the room looked fantastic.
We will be back again and again to West Lodge Park - it will always be our special place.
Thank you so so much everyone.Lesley
Sadie and I would like to thank you and the staff at West Lodge for all the help organising our wedding. The day was absolutely superb and the guests, Sadie and I had nothing but praise for all the staff who did everything in their power to make the day run smoothly. We will be writing to you more formally when we get back from honeymoon. Thank you one again, we had a superb day.Simon Pashley
I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how delightful our wedding at West Lodge Park was on 11th July. Sharon Blackgrove was super leading up to the event, making sure everything was noted and keeping us informed of progress and Adam was absolutely wonderful on the day. All of my friends and family commented on his excellent disposition. He was such a joy, friendly, professional and discreet. We were so very pleased and both Sharon and Adam are an absolute asset to the hotelKindest regards
What a perfect day it was on Saturday from St Albans Abbey to West Lodge Park
We would very much like to thank you for your help and support over the last two years in the planning and preparation of Elisa and Tom’s wedding celebration.
The day was just magical – all the i’s were dotted and the t’s crossed. The combination of your expert and very precise instructions with a diligence and excellent execution given by Adam on the day was beyond all expectations. Nothing was too much trouble for Adam and he carried out every task with a smile, warmth and tremendous willingness.
We would also be grateful if you would convey our appreciation to Wayne for the absolutely excellent food from the delicious canapés, the wedding breakfast itself which was superb, to the buffet in the evening. The service was first class and the waiters and waitresses were a credit to the hotel.
We cannot praise you, Adam, Wayne and your support staff enough for helping us to make our day so very special and one which we will relive time and time again in our memoriesAnne & Wayne
Just a quick one to say everything was AMAZING on Saturday it was just perfect, Adam was absolutely a superstar, I cannot thank him enough. We are off to Mauritius this afternoon and we will be up as soon as we get back to say thank you properlySarah
Dear Helen and Chris (June 08)
Thank you so much for your care and concern throughout the lead up to Juliet and Emmanos wedding. You are both wonderful.
Love Marilyn and |Brian
We just wanted to say thank you for all the hard work and organising for our wedding. We had such a wonderful day and are so grateful that you and all the staff at the hotel were so accommodating in making our wedding day exactly how we wanted it. You really took the pressure off of us and we definitely felt we could trust you.
Please especially thank Richard – he helped from the moment we arrived on the Saturday right through to helping us carry our gifts etc. to our room after the wedding. He kept us informed with everything that was happening, reassuring me that the cake, flowers, groom (!) had arrived, and helped make everyone feel relaxed.
The food was lovely and again when guests were changing their minds from what they had ordered there was no problem at all with changing orders, which was very much appreciated.
We hope to celebrate future occasions at the West Lodge Park and have no doubt we will receive the same first class service.
Thank you once againLaura & Andy Panayiotou
I have just spoken to Mrs Konskier who was absolutely thrilled with the hotel and her daughter’s wedding reception that was held in the marquee on Sunday.
Everything was so fantastic and went so well. She made a special mention of Chris saying that nothing was too much trouble and that the service was so efficient in the background. Compliments also to the Chef - the food was "top class".
Laura (the bride) was so ecstatic – her comment was that "it was even better than we expected!!!!!"
Well done to all.
Sharon BlackgroveYours most appreciatively

Ruth and I wish to thank you and all the staff at West Lodge Park for helping us celebrate the marriage of Gabriela and Andrew. We could not have wished for a more professional team of people who did their best to make July 1st a memorable day for the bride and groom, us and our family and friends.
We had so many comments about the beautiful venue and the quality of the food and service together with the kindness shown to our guests by your staff, nothing was too much trouble for your staff and everything was accompanied with a smile.
Ruth and I came to tea at West Lodge Park last Sunday on recommendation of friends who were at the wedding and once again we found the same high standard of service. Please send this letter to the Management of West Lodge and thank the staff for us.Ruth and David Michaelson
Many thanks for all your hard work and planning and attention to details which made our wedding day truly memorable. The food was wonderful. The service, which Richard supervised with great care and without being intrusive, was excellent, special thanks to the waiting ladies and to Tony.
Sitting either end of the beautifully decorated wedding table, Freddie and I enjoyed the happy almost heady atmosphere, looking round at all the smiling faces it felt like a great big family. Once again Sharon thank you for everything, I will be in touch with some pictures and to take you to coffee!
A perfect dayCarol & Freddie Carley
My husband and I would like to thank you, Richard and the staff for helping to make our Golden Wedding a memorable occasion. The food was excellent and the floral arrangements lovely. We would have no hesitation in recommending West Lodge Park to family and friends.Yours sincerely

Dear Mr Seward,
You hosted our wedding on the 5th May 2007 and we would really like to let you know how satisfied we were with the entire "wedding experience" at West Lodge Park"
On the day the King Charles Room was beautifully prepared for our wedding service and evening function. The duty manager and his assistant ensured that the entire day flowed smoothly and they seemed to achieve this with just the right degree of presence and tact, always there when needed but never seeming too obvious.
We appreciate that much of the success is the result of the efforts of those behind the scenes so our thanks go to the entire team at West lodge Park who helped to make our big day such a pleasant occasion.Yours sincerely Mr and Mrs M Salt
Dear Ms Loasby,
We would like to say how delighted we were with the professionalism and warmth of all your staff, which contributed to making our wedding day on 25th May 2007 a most memorable occasion.Gary West
Dear Sharon and All Staff,
Thank you so much for making Joanne and Lennox's Wedding Day so special and ensuring everything went smoothly.
The food was superb and we received many comments about it and the wonderful grounds the hotel is set in. Again a big thank you to everyoneKind Regards
Pauline and Philip Yeoland
Just a quick note to say how very delighted and thrilled we were with the way our daughter's wedding was handled on June 9th 2007.
The Marquee looked lovely; the drink reception on the lawn with the little tables put outside worked fantastically well. I know the good weather on the day was an amazing bonus, but the staff all worked so hard in quite surprising heat to make sure that everything ran smoothly. Nothing was too much trouble, even though our early arrival must have caused consternation!
The meal was beautifully served and delicious, the wineglasses were kept filled, the bar in the John Evelyn Room worked well, and when there was an extra crush more staff appeared to help out.
Please convey our appreciation and thanks to all the staff who worked so hard behind the scenes, including the gardening department who kept the grounds looking so magnificent.
I have to say that I always felt that your professionalism would ensure a wonderful day, and I actually didn't worry about the reception (apart from the weather), but it is always nice to have one's faith prove right! All our guests say it is the best wedding they have ever been to, so thank you and regards also to Richard and Chris.Best Wishes
Christine and Chris Price
