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

Beautiful surroundings…very comfy beds

Location was very pretty and very convenient with a petrol station just down the road and restaurants as well. Lovely venue for weddings. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone! Great selection of breakfast too top it off!
