“Hasbilbo” – Tripadvisor

We stayed here for one night last week it’s a lovely hotel also my son and daughter in law got married here in April this year and it was amazing all the wedding staff ever first class nothing was to much trouble for any of them at all. They all had smiles all day long and helped make there day really special. We had a meal it was good food and good quality and plenty and the price was good. The rooms are really nice the bed was very comfortable and there was all the things you usually get in a hotel like tea and coffee and bathroom toiletries, the towels were very clean and nice and white. There is plenty of space for parking your car it also has safely barriers to the entrance and exit which is good and added safety for your car. It’s a short walk into the centre of Retford town so if you do not want to drive that’s good. Its not an over priced hotel for what you get it’s up there with a good 4 star hotel I would recommend it for a stay you could do a lot worse and pay more, also I would highly recommend it for weddings as we all really enjoyed our son and daughter in laws day.

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.

Tranquility at it’s best

This hotel offered a pleasant, clean, spacious room in a peaceful setting with the opportunity to stroll around delightful gardens. There was a varied menu, well presented at breakfast and Sunday lunch. Despite being situated near a busy road one was not aware of traffic noise. Historic East Retford is a quaint market town with interesting buildings, small shops, river and canal walks as well as a lovely park

“A Perfect Weekend Break” ~ Tripadvisor

“Our rooms were spacious and looked to have been recently renovated. They had a well-presented bathroom (bath plus overhead shower), flat screen tv (freeview channels only) plus the usual tea / coffee making facilities. The beds were comfortable with a modern duvet and the rooms were expertly serviced each day.”
