“Had an AMAZING Wedding here!

“I recently had my wedding reception at The West Retford Hotel. From start to finish the hotel catered for our every need. The venue was perfect, the staff were wonderful, especially Alice both during the preparation and on the actual day. A lot of family and friends stayed overnight (both before and after the day) and everyone said how lovely the accommodation and delicious the following breakfast was. I would defiantly recommend this hotel. The food at the wedding was superb and definitely exeeded our expectations. “

“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.”
