Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a great little hotel next to the pub the rooms are all on the first floor accessed via a flight of stairs. The rooms are well decorated with an en suite shower room and all face the road but I did not find it noisy. The room was very clean and provided with towels and shower gel etc.
To the front there is a small car park but there are local car parks nearby.
Overall a great hotel

Return visit. Great location, lovely rooms, extra bits like a little fridge in the room and high ceiling make it 5 stars 🌟
The pub had live music (Friday night) which stopped dot on 11pm so no problem at all. The booking in process and car parking straight in front of the venue are all great.

We stayed for 1 night as had an event to attend.
Great location, room was small but adequate for our stay, really clean.
Staff at the adjoining pub (where you check in - The Idle Valley Tap is) were lovely and helpful.
It was a Thursday, our room was at the front and we could hear the customers in the garden but it didn't really bother us. I suppose if there was something on like a band it would be different but easy enough to check if you gave them a call.
The pub itself was really nice, staff welcoming, nice decor, couple of sofas.
We did end the evening in there having a few drinks and trying out the shots on offer (not something I'd normally do as I don't drink very often!).
Retford itself is a lovely little town and I'd definitely stop here again if we were in the area.

Apalling guest service. For my 3rd visit (following 2 enjoyable stays) I was allocated room 0. Rooms 0 to 5 are directly above the Idle Tap pub. Music was very loud and intrusive rendering it impossible to sleep. Despite several calls and despite reassurances that the music would be turned down it continued until 00h18. Totally unacceptable and still no apology or compensation and no reply despite calls, many e-mails and several tracked letters. Not a single acknowledgement nor the courtesy of a reply. Shocking, disgusting, apalling, disrespectful and total disregard for guest service and guest satisfaction. I will no longer recommend this property nor give them my custom ever again.

Response from Charlotte Todd, General Manager at Rooms At The Inn
Responded 21 Jun 2022
Good afternoon, we are always very grateful for any reviews good or bad as this gives us chance to make changes. I would just like to begin by saying your stay was last year and it was under previous management, I do however have the details to hand so feel I must respond with some facts. We are very honest across all booking platforms that some of our rooms are above the pub but we do have rules in place for noise levels generally by 11pm the music is off. Our rooms are soundproofed ( we have also recently added the option of disposable ear plugs ). It is very rare that we get any noise complaints. On the night of your stay I believe you spoke with the owner on the out of hours phone who did apologise and asked you to give her a few moments to contact the pub, this was before 12am. She did this as quick as she could as she was not on site. It was a busy weekend and the pub had a band on but the music was then switched off immediately. I believe you then chose to carry on your stay and went to bed and that was the last anyone heard on the matter. It was only weeks later you started to request a refund that we didn't believe was warranted after we sorted the issue and you stayed with us and left without a word the next morning. We disagree with your comments on our guest service and satisfaction, we have a great team who always strive to make sure our guests are happy. We don't have many reviews on here but our booking platform reviews speak volumes on our establishment. We are very sorry you feel feel as strongly as you do but I believe this is now the end of the matter and I hope you enjoy any future stays elsewhere.

Really nice rooms, recently refurbished, clean and bright, well furnished and comfortable. We stayed 3 nights and had really good sleeps, except for Saturday when the music in the pub went on until midnight. We were out late so only impacted for 30 minutes or so. Will stay again and would recommend.

Rooms are cheap and it's got everything you need , but our room , number 6 the shower was broken. Water came out scolding hot and you couldn't adjust it, a strip was with no flannels over a hand basin is not going to be fun in the morning. Mentioned it at the pub where you get the keys from when we got back after a long day out ( we left before pub was open). The lady is getting an emergency plumber in the morning after we vacate the room. On one of the hottest days of the year. Won't be returning.

Clean, tidy, no frills, centrally located, ideal for our requirements as we were just passing through and needed somewhere to rest our heads.

Just minutes from loads of restaurants in the evening. Didn’t have breakfast in the morning as there are quite a few cafes in the vicinity with competitive prices.

Will definitely use again.

IWow! I didn’t realise I was staying at an establishment that has recently won “ Four In a Bed!”
Firstly, well l done and well deserved. Apparently listening to the barman at the adjacent pub, it’s being televised the early part of next year!
Gosh, I’ve just let the cat out of the bag!
Anyway, you’ll all find out one day.
After staying just one night , I couldn’t fault the place.
The reception was good, and well explained.
The room, although small, was well presented, albeit a tad hot.
The bathroom surprised me, as it was larger than I thought.
All in all a great whistle stop stay, which I would thoroughly recommend.

There are six spaces an a first come basis, but large public (pay carpark - but reasonable prices) next to the hotel. We were able to park in the hotel spaces without trouble.
