we were in the stables, the room was filthy, sink cracked and full of cobwebs; the front door rattled all night. we requested a taxi from reception, and once the Scottish guy finished texting, he gave us a list of taxis to call ourselves! We arrived back at the hotel at 11.05pm, and on entering, the said scottish guy and... More

The room was comfortable except for two things. Firstly I had asked for a disabled room, technically this should have a wet room, not a shower over the bath, I was informed it had grab rails so I asked for a step to be put by the bath and a slip mat, the grab rails were two little silver had...

We stayed in the stable block and the room was spacious and clean but the lighting was poor when trying to get ready to go out. As other reviews have mentioned the floor boards creak really bad so if you get up in the night you wake up the adjoining rooms as well as anyone below. Other than that we... More

From the photos we had expected a spacious twin room in an elegant listed building so were disappointed that the twin room we were given was nothing at all like the room we thought we had booked. It was very small, dark and upstairs in 'the stable' annex with very noisy stairs and creaky floorboards. As I am currently on... More

Room was clean and tidy. All facilities were available and bed was very comfortable. Staff were welcoming and friendly and level of service was very good. Full English breakfast on Sunday morning was hot and served with a cheery smile. The whole experience was excellent and great value.

We like the 'stables' rooms for location. Okay, the room wasn't perfect, but for us, the price was brilliant and it is so close to Retford town centre. The staff are all hardworking, friendly and helpful.

I do not usually bother with writing reviews however I recently stayed at the elms hotel it Retford. I was so disappointed I felt it required a review. I stayed in one of the stable type bedrooms. On entry the room was dark, I turned the light on to be shocked by 2 ridiculously bright spotlights which seem to make... More

Given the price I wasn't expecting a lot but the floor boards were VERY creeky, I'm not heavy footed and can't imagine this was the result of this but could hear everything in rooms either side! Timings of toilet breaks during night for our neighbours wasn't how I wanted to spend my evening! Bed was fairly comfortable but as soon... More
