Silver Wedding Celebration Experience

“From start to finish the planning and execution of a celebration dinner/dance party for 100 guests was outstanding. The staff were extremely helpful, positive and welcoming.”


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.


“Comfortable well furnished rooms . WiFi signal strong in rooms. Breakfast well presented and a good choice. Evening meals good quality and value. Ideal for exploring Sherwood Forest and surrounding attractions”

“Ladies Christmas gathering”

We had a lovely evening here for our annual Christmas gathering. The atmosphere was good the food was good. The wine and drinks are over priced. I would recommend this location for the Christmas party night
