“Great Place” – Tripadvisor

Now this is more like it, lovely hotel, great staff, fast wi-fi and free, as it should be these days. Really good comfortable rooms and an excellent Breakfast, freshly cooked no dry buffets here. Thoroughly recommend this Hotel


“Comfortable well furnished rooms . WiFi signal strong in rooms. Breakfast well presented and a good choice. Evening meals good quality and value. Ideal for exploring Sherwood Forest and surrounding attractions”

“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.”

Our Wedding Day 3rd Sep 2016

Me and my husband got Married here on the 3rd of September, the venue and it’s grounds are just beautiful.

We was supposed to have an outside wedding under the pagoda but the weather stopped that from happening but they set up our wedding inside and it was still everything we had dreamt of and more.

Alice the lady in charge on the day and master of ceremonies was absolutely amazing. Alice did everything we asked of her efficiently and professionally and made us feel so relaxed.

The food was very nice everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and we had no complaints.

Me and my husband would definitely recommend this wedding venue. It’s so beautiful inside and out and the staff are always more than helpful.

Thank you West Retford for the most amazing day of our lives!

Love Mr & Mrs Jackson 🙂
