Me and my partner got married at the West Retford March 2014. To sum it up...fantastic! Staff were very hands on, nothing too much trouble. Everything went fantastic. The food was amazing, and a lot of my guests said they've never had such lovely food at a wedding before. I'd personally like to thank Paul and all his kitchen staff for there hard work in the kitchen that day. The food was outstanding! Hats off to you all. A big thank you to everyone for all your hard work that day. Without it, I don't think our day would have been half as magical as it was. Deffinately will be returning. :)

Was the Best Man at David & Karen Smith's wedding on 22nd March. The staff could not do anymore!!! Ceremony rooms was nice, reception room was also. The newly landscaped gardens were a delight & the food was superb. Alice & the rest of the team were excellent throughout the day.
The bedroom was spacious, very clean & comfy. Breakfast in the orangery was very tasty & of course excellent service.
I am there again on Friday & quite looking forward to it.
Since my last visit some years ago, the hotel has had some investment & TLC & is a much better ace for it.
See you soon team.

My sister in law got married here in march 2014, I was a bridesmaid and most of the family also stayed overnight. From the moment the bridal party arrived we we're greeted by the manager and a sence of organisation was definatly present. The building it's self was stunning with unexpected beautiful grounds. The ceremony room was private, large with lovely decoration. All staff we're well presented and literally nothing was a problem especially from the kitchen staff. Staff we're attentive after the amazing ceremony. You could always find someone to ask a question. The sit down meal was delicious hats off to Paul and the kitchen staff ( who worked 17 hours) especially when I needed baby food quickly it was made without a problem as fast as possible. The night do was brilliant great atmosphere relaxed and approachable staff. The rooms we're large and lovely in a seperate building which we definatly preferred. Breakfast was nice although I do prefer the Buffett type of breakfast but that's me being picky. Overall it was a spectacular day at a lovely hotel but would definatly say the staff make the world of difference.

We got married here in Aug '13. It was an amazing day and everything was perfect except for the main course coming out over cooked (see review written last year). By way of an apology for this, we were invited back on a complimentary stay in the honeymoon suite with dinner and breakfast. The MOC, Nick was expecting our arrival and thanks to him and the team of staff working we were treated like royalty. Nothing was too much trouble and the service, as on our wedding day, was exceptional. They truly did themselves proud. No one wants the dinner on your wedding day to be any less than perfect but they really did more than make up for it. As I said in my wedding review, chicken aside, if we had to do it all again, we'd still choose The West Retford!

My wife and I stayed for one night, but had to have an early dinner to be able to meet friends. The receptionist arranged for the chef to start cooking early, which meant that we didn't have to rush. The dinner and the whole service was excellent, and for the first time ever I would give a hotel 10/10 for the whole experience.

I travel to the area regularly on business and this was the first time I've stayed here - and it was a pleasant experience. The hotel layout it quite unique with a block of bedrooms away from the main hotel.

Check in was smooth and efficient, and I found the room with some ease. The bedroom itself was well appointed and had everything one might need for an evenings stay. The one detractor would be the Wi-fi which was a bit patchy to begin with but was fine for most of the stay.
Breakfast was good, I ordered 'off the menu' as it were, and this was not a problem.

Check out was prompt - all in all I left feeling happy with the stay.

I can recommend this hotel. Nice! Close to the railway station. Lovely surroundings, must be beautiful in spring and summer. I will certainly come back at some time. Actually I have nothing more to say, so these last words are just to fill in the 200 characters. Irritating!
