Hi Chris,

We had an excellent stay thank you – I sent an email yesterday to Andrew saying thank you for your kind hospitality by allowing my husband Chris and I to stay on Friday night.

We really enjoyed our stay, however brief, and found the staff in particular to be excellent and very friendly. You have a really good team there who went out of their way to sort out an issue we had with a taxi company and resolved the situation for us even though it was very late at night.

I included a piece on Beales Hotel on my blog yesterday – click on the link below and it is the latest blog – which includes a link through to Beales Hotel as well.

Thanks again for your hospitality Chris.

Dear Mr Hall

Further to your letter to me dated 11th January 2010, I would like to thank you most sincerely for your kind hospitality during your stay on Saturday evening.

My wife and I had a very enjoyable evening, greeted with a most kind and warm welcome. Dinner in the restaurant was extremely enjoyable and the presentation and service were excellent.

As we had such a wonderful 2009 New Years Eve party at Beales, we are hoping to arrange a small party for New Years Eve this year and will be contacting you to arrange this as soon as we receive confirmation from friends.

Please convey our sincere gratitude to your staff for their attentiveness and personal service at all times. I would like to commend you too on the efficiency and professional manner in which your hotel is run.

My wife and I look forward to staying at Beales again.

Yours sincerely,

T J Ascott

I would just like to pass on my thanks and congratulations to you for the very fine hotel that you have at Hatfield. I had the pleasure of staying at your hotel on 1 May to 3 May 2010.

I was surprised after reading the guest information that I had in fact visited the hotel before in 1970 when I had my wedding ceremony in the octagonal building that was part of the original Hatfield Lodge Hotel. I remember the distinctive red wood panelling.

You have created a distinctive hotel that I would say is the best in which I have stayed. Even some of Sydney's top Hotels, cannot match the service and quality of the accommodation. I will be recommending the hotel to friends and I am pleased to have found you on the WOTIF website a site that I use frequently in Australia.

I grew up in Hatfield and I come back every couple of years to visit family who still live locally. Hatfield has changed since I left in 1970 and I am sorry to say not for the better so finding such a gem of a hotel was a most pleasant surprise. I will definitely be staying in your hotel again.

Hi Clare

Overnight stay 08/08/09

Just a few lines to congratulate you all after my recent first visit to your hotel.

I found all of your staff to provide an excellent level of service from the check-in/out reception to the restaurant/room-service staff.

The standard of hotel/room decor was exceptional and the quality of the rooms and standard items provided therein were exactly those i would expect from a quality establishment.

Dinner in the restaurant was also of an excellent standard and value for money. I will have no hesitancy in using your hotel in the future if the need arises.
