Appreciate this is lofty praise, but having stayed in hundreds of different hotels around the world, I feel pound for pound this is the best hotel I've ever stayed in by a country mile! I've stayed in luxurious 5 star hotels, with prices that match and very cheap motel accommodation, West Lodge seems to have the balance absolutely perfect. Myself... More

We were looking for a hotel within a short drive of Hatfield and with the help of Tripadvisor found West Lodge Park, just about 10 minutes drive away, and we were so pleased we did! Where do we start this review - it has to be with the trees! The hotel is set in the most beautiful extensive grounds and... More

Thank you for your kind review of West Lodge Park. I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay in the hotel, and of course that you made the effort to look around the Beale Arboretum. The 800 species of trees, the two national collections of Taxodium (Swamp Cypress) and Carpinus Betulus (Hornbeam), and the 5000 trees in total around... More

Went for the tea, which I really recommend. Endless cups of tea with sandwiches, scones with jam and cream and beautiful pastries. Absolutely delicious. The staff are friendly and efficient. The grounds are beautiful. It's a real treat. I didn't pay, but I believe it's about £30 per person.

Thank you for your kind review of Afternoon tea at West Lodge Park, I am glad you enjoyed your visit to us. Actually the full three tier afternoon tea is just £19.50 per person currently, and it represents great value for money. In addition we have the huge benefit of unlimited free parking, and 35 acres of stunning grounds to... More

On Sunday 17th May 2015, between the hours of 2-5pm, West Lodge Park Hotel opened up the Beale Arboretum to the public. So we were curious enough to pop along and have a look. This review only covers the arboretum. The Hotel is reached by road, coming off the M25 at Jct 24 and heading down the A 111 (Cockfosters... More

Thank you for your review of the Beale Arboretum NGS Open Day at West Lodge Park. The Yellow Book (as it is called) is the annual National Gardens Scheme guide to the thousands of gardens open to the public on certain days of the year. Between all the open days, many millions of pounds are raised for a wide range... More

I actually worked at West Lodge Park back in 1972 (at the tender age of 17) for a period of 18 months and, having retired last July, thought how wonderful it would be to go back to WLP to celebrate not only my retirement but also my 60th birthday on 16th May. So I arranged a lunch for family and... More

Thank you for your lovely review of West Lodge Park I am glad you have good memories of this lovely hotel since your time working here in 1972. Tony King started here in the restaurant in 1971 and is now Finance Director, and we have other staff who started in the 1970's and are still here. This is the thing... More

We had a recently refurbished room which was nicely decorated. The grounds are lovely although the nearby traffic noise has to be ignored whilst out walking. My only complaint was that we sat on the terrace for 20 minutes and no-one came near us so we had to go to the bar to order drinks. That said, the meal in... More

The West Park Lodge is a wonderful experience. Dating back to 1600's, used as a hunting lodge, the reformation to regular hotel accommodation has been done very well. Rooms are very comfortable, mini fridge contents are complimentary, bar and food exquisite (but a bit expensive). Staff helpful and friendly. I've stayed there three times and can't wait until my fourth... More

Thanks so much for your kind review of West Lodge Park, You are absolutely right that West Lodge was a hunting lodge, serving the needs of the royal and aristocratic visitors to the Enfield Chase, the glorious tract of land that still surrounds the hotel. I am glad that you like our annexe rooms in Chestnut Lodge, which are deliberately... More

Thanks for your second 5/5 review of West Lodge Park Hotel. I am so glad that you enjoyed this visit just as much, and that we looked after you so well.

I recently stayed at another 4 star hotel down the road from West Lodge. Though perfectly nice, when compared with West Lodge, there is no contest. West Lodge's grounds are breathtakingly beautiful, and the hotel hard to fault. Staff were warm, friendly and helpful; my room was well equipped & decorated and very comfortable. Breakfast is served buffet style with... More
