“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. “

Wedding Party – Tripadvisor

We had our wedding party here yesterday after our wedding in St Lucia. The staff couldn’t have been more attentive and the communication over the past few months has been faultless.
The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The rooms are lovely and clean. We stayed in the honeymoon suite which is really spacious with a big bathroom. My only criticism about the room would be that the radiators were red hot and with temperatures we’ve had this weekend it was uncomfortable getting ready and dressed for the wedding. The four poster bed was very comfortable but very creaky.
Lovely dressing gowns and toiletries provided.
Our guests commended the food at the reception and the breakfast was freshly cooked.
I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this hotel. Lovely hotel with beautiful grounds

A wonderful experience enjoying ‘Afternoon Tea’ In the Orangery today 1st November 2017.
The gardens are stunning and this continues when you walk inside the building. We were greeted with a welcoming smile from the Receptionist and then shown to our table, equipped with two highchairs as requested and served our Afternoon Tea by two lovely members of staff, who were friendly and professional and accomodated all our needs. The food presentation and quality was to a very high standard.
A truly wonderful experience, which I will be recommending 100% to Family & Friends.

“Great Hotel”

Very impressed with the room for the price paid. Friendly staff, good bar and restaurant. A continental breakfast delivered to the room at no extra cost!!! A short walk to the town centre. Really struggling to find something negative but a short walk from room to reception and bar is outside and might be an issue in bad weather.
