“Consistently Good”

“We have stayed at the West Retford three times in the last 6 months. On each visit, we found the staff to be very obliging. The rooms are a decent size, well decorated and furnished.  Evening meals can be taken in the restaurant or in the lounge bar and are of good quality and price. Good choice of Continental & cooked food at breakfast. In our opinion, the hotel offers very good value for money and we look forward to our next stay.”
