Burns night was a good night .Food was hot and very nice would recommend.

Our wedding 16th Sep 2016

We had our wedding reception at the West Retford hotel and my wife and I were very happy with the service provided and how smoothly everything went on the day, so firstly I’d like to thank everyone at the hotel for helping to make the day special.

The venue itself is perfect for a wedding, from the grand entrance and the beautiful facade, and then the absolutely gorgeous gardens at the rear which are perfect for photos and gatherings. The main downstairs hall is great for holding the reception and is ideal for 60-100 guests.

The rooms are actually in a separate building which is ideal when guests want to retire from the party, as the separate building is quiet. The rooms are also well furnished, clean and the beds comfortable.

For the meal we had the Soup to start, Venison & Mash for main, with cheesecake for dessert. The food was very nice, particularly the cheesecake which was fantastic.

Finally I want to praise all the staff who were involved. Everybody was very friendly, respectful & accommodating. It was well organised and there were no problems on the day, everything went smoothly. Even the night porter was more than happy to allow us to continue chatting and drinking in the lounge area after the music & main bars had closed, serving us drinks.

All round fantastic place and I have no doubt that we will return for the odd visit, for old times sake.

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.”
