“Fairytale Wedding”

We recently had our wedding reception at The West Retford hotel and I can honestly say it was first class. Everything was perfect from the affordable package, the friendly staff, the hot delicious food and the spacious clean rooms. If we had to do it all again next week we wouldn’t change a thing it was absolutely magical.

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.

My Wedding Day

I had my wedding last Wednesday at the West Retford Hotel. From the day we went to view the hotel till the time we checked out after our wedding we had the most amazing experience there. The staff were fault less, the wedding went like clock work. They made all our guests and people involved with our wedding feel so welcome and nothing was to much trouble. Throughout the day someone was always on hand but in the back ground and they made sure we had whatever we needed at the right time. I would recommend this hotel to anyone I cant imagine a better day than what we had. Perfect day in the most perfect place.
