A 1920s house captured in time
Step back in time to the 1920s and find out how a grocer’s family lived in this market town. This ordinary semi-detached house, with original interior decorations from 1923, was the home of the Straw family.

For 60 years the family threw little away and chose to live without many of the modern comforts we take for granted.

Photographs, letters, Victorian furniture and household objects spanning 100 years can still be seen exactly where their owners left them.

Me and 8 of my friends went for afternoon tea at the west Retford Hotel.it was absolutely gorgeous, the service was excellent and the food was delicious. Thank you . Definitely well worth the £12.50 each we spent. Xx

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.

We stayed here the night last night as we get married at the west Retford on 27.12.17.
The room was spacious, very clean, comfortable and warm.
We had a meal at night and there was plenty to choose from off a couple of different menus. The food was extremely good as was the continental and full English breakfast.
Overall it was an excellent stay and Connor wait to get married there in a year. Thank you.

Does not deserve a 3 star should be at least a 4 star

Could not fault this hotel Received a warm welcome at reception Room was comfortable and very well appointed Bar food had an excellent choice. Breakfast was also very good and listed at £10.95 but if paid when checking in was £7.00 The staff were very helpful and friendly Would thoroughly recommend this hotel.
