We were visiting friends in North London and a relative in M25 land and searched for a bed for the night in a hotel with good Trip Advisor reviews. This one fitted the bill perfectly.
Not having any familiarity with this part of the previously unexplored universe beyond the northern end of the Piccadilly line, and being quite astonished to find a green environment, it was a pleasure to drive up to this hotel which had so clearly belonged to the Chief Rangers of Enfield Chase when the Dukes of Chandos were the owners.
This is to preface its old world charm, high standards of comfort, and a feeling that everything would be just right. It was. While we tend to avoid reviews of hotels where we have had only the briefest of stays, not even taking time for breakfast, it is clear that West Lodge Park has lovely large rooms of high standard.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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 ... more less
