We needed a Barnet-area stopover in order to attend a birthday party. I booked West Lodge Park as it was the nearest to show up on Google maps with available rooms. With limited expectations we were blown away. It's a great building in a wonderful parkland area with its own arboretum. Public areas are spacious, staff most welcoming and helpful and our room was excellent. We even had a walk in closet cum ironing room. Returning well after midnight we enjoyed a drink in the bar in the company of an amusing and friendly night manager and then slept soundly on the most comfortable mattress under the softest duvet imaginable.
A hearty breakfast was followed by a rather damp (not the hotel's fault) walk around the arboretum which made us resolve to visit again in more clement circumstances.
