We have just returned from our daughter's wedding at the hotel and cannot think of anything that could have been done better. The location, grounds and rooms were excellent. The professionalism, helpfulness and friendliness of the staff all contributed to an unforgettable day. The wedding breakfast was superb and that was not the top package. The quality could not be faulted. The rooms were large and well designed and the main function room had an atmosphere which could not be bettered.The bar selection of local ales and the overall range was very good. The glasses of champagne and strawberries for the bride and groom at breakfast were a very thoughtful touch and was much appreciated but that was typical of the whole experience. We would recommend this hotel for any wedding and would be confident that you would go a long way to equal it never mind better it.

This is an impressive building, with a friendly helpful receptionist, very comfortable rooms of a quality usually seen in more expensive hotels. The photos are accurate! The menu is brief, but the food is fabulous, the belly pork was perfect and the chocolate fondant was perfect. We had a bottle if wine we didn't like , so they took great trouble to change it for one we would prefer and we were generally made to feel valued.

Free wifi, everything is as you would want to find in a top hotel. I will stay here next time we come up here.

Can't recommend highly enough

My husband and I held our wedding at The West Retford Hotel on the 27th September 2013, and the one word to sum up the day would have to be "amazing".
The location, the building, the rooms and the hotel grounds are beautiful, a perfect setting for our special day.
All the staff were amazing throughout and nothing was too much trouble. Every member of staff played a part in helping our day run smoothly and we cannot thank them enough for their attention to detail and true professionalism.
I know we're biased but it truly was the most magical day and all our guests have nothing but praise for the events of the day and the whole setting and atmosphere of the hotel.
So, we would not hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone looking for the "WOW" factor wedding venue or for a break away whatever the occasion, you will not be disappointed.
Many thanks to all at The West Retford, my husband and I take away many fond memories of our truly magnificent day, Mr & Mrs Blair x

My wife and I stayed two nights in a double room in early September and I stayed a third in a single after she left to see relatives. After a long flight from Australia and the drive from Heathrow, it was a relief to obtain the last room as the hotel was booked out for a National Grid conference. The double was spacious and the tea and coffee-making facilities appreciated. The shower was more than up to Australian expectations :)

The menu was varied and the meals I had on two evenings were very tasty. The Chilean sauvignon blanc was good value. Despite a big crowd around, I thought the wait staff were efficient and courteous, with the food served in reasonable time. The bar staff also were polite and efficient despite the crush. I delayed breakfast until I was sure the 'power party' had departed. There was a good choice and the cooked portion was delicious.

In my view, there was only one downside. We were on the first floor of the annex - which has no lift - and arriving on a Sunday afternoon apparently meant there was no porter available to carry the suitcases. At 67 it's a bit of an effort for me these days. However, that's only a minor blemish. One useful asset was the computer under the stairs in the annex, particularly when we had not had time to buy European SIM cards for our mobile phones.

Overall, I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel for its facilities and its service.

I recently stayed at the west retfor hotel for a weekend break with my husband, i was pleasantly surprised by the warm friendly environment and the room was superb, lovely meal in the resteraunt with excellent food and service from the waiting staff.
The best part by far though was the breakfast, everything was fantastic and i was so happy with the service, glyn and louise inparticular were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them, it was so nice that they showed interest in our stay and the day ahead of us.
I would 100% reccommend this hotel.
Thanks to everyone foe making our stay very memorable :-)

This was our second visit to the Hotel and will not be our last.

We booked room only this time and were given one of the refurbished rooms in the annexe. We could not fault it at all. The room was extremely clean, quiet and very comfortable indeed.

Staff on reception were helpful and did their job very efficiently with a smile.

We use the hotel when visiting friends in Retford. It is in a great position and is only a short walk into the Town . Plenty of parking at the Hotel when we stayed on a Saturday night.

Can definately recommend.
