For £45 a night we were not expecting much even though the reviews were positive. However, we were pleasantly surprised. The room was modern, clean and a decent size. Could of done with a few touch ups, lick of paint ect but nothing that bothered us or affected our stay. Breakfast was a little disappointing but ok for the price.... More

We were driving out to Retford one evening and had decided to have tea out which I thought would be in the town centre, however we decided to pull into the elms hotel on the way which I had never Visited before, very grand when you drive in to park up. We looked through the menu and could see various... More

Have just spent a night here to attend a wedding in Retford. Room was fine although having so many curtains around the window meant too much light got in too early!!! Bathroom adequate and bed quite comfy! Seriously let down by the breakfast - not enough staff, not enough crockery (and some dirty in what should be a clean pile... More

Stayed in this hotel for one night while visiting family in th area. We stayed here a very long time ago so we were slightly disappointed to see that it is now a 241 pub. We were given rooms in the stable block although we would have preferred the main house. The rooms are pleasant enough and the beds are... More

Stayed for just one night and was slightly concerned as the reviews I had read were not brilliant but I was very pleasantly surprised. The room was quite large and spotlessly clean and had an extremely large comfortable bed. Shower was good - nice and hot and easy to control. The room was very quiet and we could not hear... More

We recently visited and have seen a definite decline in the restaurant area...the tables were sticky and lacking in appropriate cleaning, the food was basic so basic even the peas weren't cooked properly. I understand you get what you pay for!!! And the food is cheap but there should, at least be a minimal standard shouldn't they????. The toilets were... More

Our expectations were not good having read other reviews but we found the accomadation although cramped clean and tidy. The room had all that you would need:- a good shower, clean linen and towels, etc. The only problem is the very poor soundproofing between rooms but we were lucky in our considerate neighbour although every movement can be heard in...

I stay in the midlands regularly. I was booked in here by my company and after reading the reviews was somewhat dubious. They have clearly made someimprovements. Stayed three nights and was happy with room 18. Good shower. Room was clean and well stocked if a little on the small side. The bar/restaurant was good with plenty choice and friendly... More
