“Great Hotel”

Very impressed with the room for the price paid. Friendly staff, good bar and restaurant. A continental breakfast delivered to the room at no extra cost!!! A short walk to the town centre. Really struggling to find something negative but a short walk from room to reception and bar is outside and might be an issue in bad weather.

“Xmas fayre menu”

Visited the restaurant yesterday for a meal , I was very pleased with the meal, starter main and desert was lovely all very tasty and hot. Service was very efficient, had a number of waiters/ waitresses they were all pleasant. I will definitely return in the future. Thank you.

“Very pleasant place to stay indeed. Plenty parking – Every member of staff friendly and welcoming without being too pushy.Food very good and rooms welcoming and cosy with everything I needed.” Tripadvisor review


Attended a wedding here in the summer, A stunning little location, the rooms are outstanding quality. It didn’t feel like I was in retford at all, I felt half the world away. It really was beutiful. Very clean and tidy, huge bed and lots of space, having not had lunch before the event I wanted to order room service, unfortunatly this is at limited time, it would be much nicer if it was available 24/7 but it’s under standable that it isn’t. Breakfast was lovely, the reception staff were delightful. I would certainly stop here again, but not with out reason.
