This hotel is fantastic. The staff are the best I've ever met. They upgraded our room for free when they found out we had just got married. We really enjoyed our stay, wish it was longer. Both me and my husband loved the breakfast,everything is good quality.

Spent the night of our 10th Wedding Anniversary there, as we had our reception at the same place. Excellent service, dinner (including great pianist) and breakfast. Really enjoyable experience. The ambience is perfect - quiet surroundings, including their magnificent garden and grounds.

Thank you for a wonderful evening. The food was delicious and we all had a lovely evening celebrating a special birthday. Ten of us kept the pianist occupied for the whole evening. To find fault would be nit-picking - the service at the bar was a bit slow - we were not in a hurry so it didn't matter too...

I agree totally with the positive reviews of this hotel. Lovely room. Excellent housekeeping. Friendly staff. Good quality food. Well maintained hotel and grounds. Good price for bed, breakfast and evening meal. It feels a million miles away from the M25, but in reality is very close. I also witnessed staff dealing with the slobbish aftermath of two guests who...

We stayed there for one Saturday night and had a lovely time. The rooms where very spacious and clean and I had a good night sleep in the excellent bed; only the pillows were too soft! If you stay there don't forget to take a walk in the arboretum with lots of big green and flowering trees.

Stayed Sunday at this lovely hotel. Amazing grounds which we went for walk round as soon as we arrived, then sat outside and enjoyed a coffee overlooking the gardens. Had a three course dinner, which was lovely. The staff were really friendly and the whole hotel had a very homely feel. Will most definitely return.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
West Lodge Park Hotel is a beautiful country house hotel set in 35 acres of grounds on the edge of North London. It has been owned and run by three generations of the Beale family since 1945 and now has 59 bedrooms, the Mary Beale Restaurant and Terrace Bar, 8 stunning banqueting rooms, and plentiful free parking. The hotel is located just a mile from Cockfosters Tube station where there is a large car park and frequent trains on the Piccadilly Line to all the sights of central London. Around the hotel is the magnificent Beale Arboretum, with over 800 species of trees from around the world, 2 national collections of hornbeams and swamp cypresses, and plentiful hard paths and interpretive signage. The hotel is also home to the Edward Beale collection of Old master paintings, most of which have been painted by the ancestor of the family, Mary Beale, who was Britain's first professional woman artist, painting at the time of Charles II. It would be a pleasure to welcome you to this beautiful hotel. Andrew BealeManaging DirectorBeales Hotels ... more   less
