Service and awards

  Four generations of the Beale family have run the West Lodge Park Hotel site since it was acquired back in 1945 and subsequently turned into a fully featured hotel in the late 1950s. Since then Beales Hotels has kept it and their other establishment, the Beale Hotel in nearby Hatfield, fully family owned.   The company were pleased to be awarded four-star status by the AA and RAC for both its hotels, and also gain the highest quality rating from the AA of any hotel in the North London district for the West Park Lodge.   The company has also invested heavily in its staff leading to various ‘Investors in People’ awards over the years, and has experienced a high level of staff retention with many having worked for the company over several years.   The company has celebrated milestones for both of its hotels having clocked up over 70 years since the West Lodge Park Hotel was originally purchased, and more than half a century since the Beale Hotel was purchased.
