We travelled from Scotland to attend the Summer Ball at the hotel on 28 June and stayed for 7 nights on a bed and breakfast basis with the intention of dining the occasional evening in the bar/restaurant. The hotel is set in lovely grounds and gardens with no actual bedrooms in the main hotel which is not convenient if moving... More

to the last day, indeed I'm pleased you were happy with your bedroom, cleanliness, the food and the staff. On your last day the hotel was extremely busy as you have stated which did cause longer than normal waits for some guests waiting for food. Thank you for your nice comments regarding the ball, the room did look lovely and... More

After 35 years in hotel management in establishments ranging from 2 to 5 star both here in the UK and in Europe I reckon to know a bit about Hotels but the West Retford has me beaten. Try as I may I cannot understand the three star rating. Everything from the size and appointment of the bedrooms and bathrooms to... More

We found this hotel quite disappointing! Our rooms were in the cottage buildings. Our room was an ok size and bedding was clean. In the bathroom we had only one hand towel and bath sheet for myself and my husband, 1/3 of a toilet roll - no spare. Above the bathroom door in our room there had obviously been a... More

Thank you for your review, I'm sorry we fell short of your expectations during your recent visit. You were allocated a room in our cottage accommodation and the rooms are on the whole smaller than in the main accommodation building. After investigating your comments I have discovered there was a problem with your room which meant our maintenance team had... More

On 5th July over 50 relatives and friends joined my twin sister and I to celebrate our 80th birthday and the comments from all our guests were, without exception, complimentary and appreciative. I wasn't surprised because we'd celebrated an earlier family birthday there. What impressed me was the helpfulness and consideration of the Manager, Elaine, the beautifully prepared lunch and...

We arrived in the rain and encountered a coach and wedding party (not connected) in the hotel. This usually means chaos and no sleep but for us it meant no place in the restaurant. Instead we used the bar and the food was better than you would expect from a standard pub (mash potatoes were yummy!). The service was quick... More

We have just spent two nights at the West Retford and loved it. ALL the staff were friendly and helpful. Everything was clean. The food was great, both breakfast and bar menu. It isn't a five star hotel and nor is it five star prices. It is, however, a really nice, comfortable hotel, with it's own character, where the staff... More

Thank you for your review, I'm pleased you thoroughly enjoyed you special day.
