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

Another return for us to the hotel where we got married and where we spend every anniversary - this time our 10th. All in we think this was our 15th visit! As always, from the minute we arrived we were warmly welcomed and received the exemplary service we know to expect here.

What a lovely review to read during this new year period ! I am so pleased that you enjoyed your birthday celebration and that Music Director Paul Jaffa looked after you so well ! It is a privilege for me as owner of West Lodge Park to play a small role in creating so many magical memories for people, but really it is the excellent hotel team that do all the work. Thank you for your kind comments which I have shown to Paul and others, Kindest regards, Andrew Beale Managing Director Beales Hotels

Thank you for your review of West Lodge Park, We think you stayed in classic bedroom 29 which is in a lower price bracket than our executive rooms which come with Nespresso coffee machines, or our luxury rooms which come with mini fridges stocked with a range of free to take home items. The bathroom in bedroom 29 is due a refit shortly, but we have just finished installing a new shower into bedroom 15, are about to refit the bathroom in 45, added new lighting to your corridor in the autumn as well as new lighting up the front drive, and we are investing hundreds of thousands of pounds annually into West Lodge Park, In my 27 years in charge of the hotel, we have invested many millions of pounds in constant upgrades across all areas of the property. there is always more to do but we remain by far the highest rated hotel in the area, Regards, Andrew Beale Managing Director Beales Hotels

Gosh this is a really kind review of West Lodge Park following your stay with us over New Year. I am so delighted that every aspect of your stay was so enjoyable, The hotel team have worked really hard over this Christmas and New Year period, and have also given up their own festive period to be there for our guests, so reviews like yours are really appreciated by all. Thank you, and do come again some time ! Kindest regards, Andrew Beale Managing Director Beales Hotels

For sure, the restaurant will bring a little "Birthday" cake if you let them know - we celebrated an 80th Birthday and had a lovely meal and birthday treat. You can also arrange a cab from the hotel to take you to Cockfosters tube station where you can get a tube directly into London and theatreland.

I have to agree with paul S - whenever someone writes something negative about this hotel, the owner, either states that your are lying, or makes excuses - I have written a couple of very positive reviews on this hotel and also one negative one, for the simple reason we had a poor experience - however he then states that what I wrote was a bit exaggerated ?? Strange, why would I exaggerate something when all I have ever done in the past is praise it - kind of put off from ever going back - shame as have stayed at this hotel 10-15 times over the last 5 years. Sometimes, just sometimes things go wrong and you have to accept it

"If you stay in summer consider paying extra for an air conditioned room"
"Ask for a room with a walk - in shower. My shower was part of the bath and the bath sides were too high for me to negotiate."
"Worth paying for an executive room"
"The rooms are not over large so a dual aspect feels more spacious and the grounds are beautiful"
"Ask about access, there are many sets of stairs"
