I stayed in this hotel, with my wife for 2 nights, as a guest - Best Man in fact - at my good friend's wedding, which was held in the hotel.
First impressions were pleasing with large car park, fairly large spread out hotel of good size, and friendly reception staff. The hotel was a little difficult to find, it is on a main road within, I think Sherwood Forest, and the location fooled my SatNav. It is within a 15 minute drive of Mansfield and half an hour or so, I believe from Lincoln.
Hotel corridors were freshly painted, the hotel felt fresh and clean. Bedroom not bad, smaller and reminiscent of, though better equipped than, say a Premier Inn room (a chain I know well, as I use them often on business trips).
The hotel bars and restaurants are fairly relaxed with good ambience. Not 5 Star, but definitely than say Brewers Fayre type establishments.
The hotel organised, by arrangement, a hairdresser to attend the hotel on the morning of the wedding, to style my Wife's hair. A very nice lady, and good hairdresser, with whom my wife got on very well.
The Wedding itself was a great success, not least due to the hotel setting, and service provided by the staff. The wedding ceremony was held in an area just outside the large conservatory within which the Wedding breakfast was held. Staff were very helpful, including assisting me in setting up a small, harmless, visual funny gag at the expense of my friend, the groom, for my speech.
The guests were seated in the light and airy conservatory which is within an enclosed, outside quadrangle area.. A nice venue for the meal, the only downside being that there are no views from within the conservatory, except to the surrounding walls of the hotel.
The food served by the hotel for the wedding breakfast was, I thought, excellent. Tasty, well prepared and nicely served and presented. The evening disco and buffet were also very successful.
Not, I would say a 5 Star hotel, but definitely, at least, a very good 3 Star, or better, establishment.
So all in all, a very pleasing and enjoyable stay, both in terms of the wedding service provided by the hotel, and enjoyment of the hotel itself. The hotel has a nice atmosphere throughout.
Staff were friendly and obliging. I would happily stay here again, and would be happy to recommend it as a possible choice for a wedding reception or similar event.
