Comfortable room. On the small side but good value. Liked the tea and coffee making facilities in room. The Beds were very comfortable and clean. Good location. The bin men made a lot of noise early on Monday morning!

I chose this as it was near to where I needed to be for an event at Retford over the August Bank Holiday weekend, arriving on Saturday evening and leaving on the Monday morning. Was given room 5, which was OK but looking very tired, with damaged ceiling due to a water leak I suspect, one curtain would not meet... More

The Elms staff were very good and helpful. The food and accommodation was very good. We would recommend The Elms to anyone. Plenty of parking places available and as it is situated off the main road we had a peaceful stay.

A clean and comfortable twin room but rather dated. For price paid, we couldn't complain. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Couldn't do enough for us. Handily placed for local amenities and Clumber Park.

I have to start by saying that the staff here were fantastic, very friendly and couldn't do more for you. Great with the kids. We stayed here with our 6 and 3 year old in the family room. We were only provided with 1/2 a toilet roll and 2 bath towels for a family of 4. Anyone with a family... More

Basically the room was on the small side, the carpet was absolutely disgustingly dirty, black mould in parts of the bathroom, bare plaster on parts of wall, very poor lighting and to top it all the mattress was the lumpiest we have ever had the misfortune to encounter in our travels round the world in the last thirty years. The... More

The bed was clean fresh towels just a shame there was thick dustbin both bedside tables. The shower is very small. The noise from the creaking floor boards when anyone moved in the hall or neighbouring rooms was a bit disconcerting late at night. It sounded as though someone was coming into the room. For a one night staybitvwas fine... More

Standing in beautiful grounds this looked to be a classic place to call for a meal. We were served within minutes of arrival and our meals were ready in good time. Enjoyed the food, the staff were polite and the table and surrounding area was clean so we had no complaints at all. Would visit again without doubt.

We booked for 2 nights - Friday & Saturday as visiting family. When we arrived we noticed the bar/restaurant and hotel was combined. Upon arrival all looked fine and we booked a table for 5.30. We unpacked changed and went to dinner. Service was quick to start with but we were one of first few to be seated. Food was... More
