“So good we stayed there twice”

“We felt relaxed from the minute we arrived. The room was clean, light and airy. Good WiFi access and comfy beds too. All in all the staff were superb, friendly polite and helpful right across the board from front of house to maintenance, housekeeping and gardening. Several weddings whilst we were there but all seemed to run like clockwork.  We’ll be back to explore the area and to be treated so well by such lovely well-matched staff.”

“Fabulous Hotel”

“We attended my sisters wedding at the West Retford Hotel and had an absolutely fantastic day! The food and the service were great and the gardens provided a beautiful backdrop for photographs. Our bedroom was very spacious and modern, it was spotlessly clean and had an extremely comfortable bed. The buffet breakfast the next morning was also excellent. Would highly recommend. “

“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.”
