After staying over at this hotel when I attended a wedding previously I decided to visit the hotel on 2 occasions for lunch with my friends over a two week period. The first time we sat in the bar area and chose food from the bar menu. During this time there was a wedding ceremony due to take place outside... More

This hotel looks lovely from outside but for price paid I was very disappointed with rooms. They are very dated and could seriously do with updating - more like a B & B than an expensive hotel! Also they are not actually in the hotel but in an annexe to the side which isn't very good in the rain! As... More

Thank you for your review I am sorry some aspects of your stay did not meet your expectations. As we are an 18th century former manor house built around 1749 the hotel does have a traditional feel with it's high ornate ceilings, fireplaces and chandeliers to name only a few of its unique features. Most of our guests love the... More

Wow! As a business traveller with many nights away a year, hand on heart, I would say that this is one of the best hotels that I have every stayed in. My room was in the Georgian block on the ground floor and was very comfortable and clean. If I was to be very picky, my only criticism is that... More

Went for a function and stayed a night. I have to say this was a very surprising place. The place was clean and tidy. We had a dinner at a function there and the food was outstanding. The breakfast was excellent and they had real sausages and not the chicken ones around nowadays. The location is great. There small house... More

Thank you for you review, I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay. The vast majority of beds in the hotel are new and are of a medium firmness. We don't get too many negative comments regarding the beds but if you can let me know your room number I will investigate. regards, Andrew. (a.lavin@westretfordhotel.co.uk) More

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

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.
