Sisters Wedding

We stayed there the 28th 29th Dec 2026 for my sisters wedding. It was amazing the whole event from us turning up the day before the big day to us leaving lunch time the day after. The hotel staff was so helpful and nice, nothing was to much trouble. I would like to thank Jess and especially Alice who was the MC for the wedding for assisting us. Good choice at breakfast hot and cold, all cooked fresh. The meal we had for the wedding breakfast was excellent so tasty. The rooms are nice and very clean, if you are thinking of getting married I would definitely recommend the bridal suite it is so spacious the extra room Is needed when getting the bride ready. Even though it was a winter wedding we used the stunning gardens for the photos. This hotel is an ideal place to get married all year round. The wedding day was perfect.l would definitely return.

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.

Fabulous

Amazing staff, so,so lovely and helpful. Our room was lovely and the evening meal, I had the lamb, was superb. Didn’t want it to end. Grounds were beautifully kept, great atmosphere and very good value for money. Will be going back.
