I travel a fair bit for business and this time wanted to try something a little bit different - so I chose West Lodge Park Hotel. I stayed for three weeks. If I had read the reviews before my stay I would have kept away. Not because of some bad reviews but the manager's response to them - blaming customers... More

Have stayed here many times and come to the conclusion that the standard rooms suit us best. The beds are comfortable with good pillows and there is everything we need.

Rare treat with a total lack of commercialism. This is like taking a step back in time. The decor is tasteful and staff very polite but unintrusive. We attended a function here and cannot find fault. Highly recommended. You will not be disappointed.

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.
