We stayed for one night with our grandsons in a family room and were very comfortable. The room was big enough, quiet, the bathroom well equipped and everything worked. We had lunch, dinner and a breakfast fit for kings and bill came to £160 + a few drinks. We could not have asked for anything more, the staff were all...

We stayed for two nights in this very comfortable hotel. We had two adjoining rooms in the annex - specially requested as they were ground floor rooms as my husband cannot manage stairs. The rooms were very spacious, warm and clean. The bathroom was clean and a good size, the bed was very comfortable. Even on a night when the...

We have enjoyed Burns Night at the West Retford Hotel for a number of years but this year several things were disappointing. Firstly the date was confusing as it was different on the website to the brochure initially. This was sorted in good time. The choice of food for the night could not possibly cater to every ones taste. Personally...

Dear Lynnbracken, thank you for your review and feedback. I'm sorry you felt that this year was as good as previous occasions. The first course was a cold course, this was intentional, Whisky Smoked Salmon with beetroot salad. I'm sorry you had a delay in some items, yes it was busy. We may look at capping the numbers for next...

A most enjoyable evening rather spoilt by the lack of finesse etc ,one would expect from an establishment such as this. It was obvious from the start that they had overbooked,there was a wedding also taking place in another room, which meant the very young staff were not being directed properly and were over stretched. For example four requests were...

Dear romanticsnotts, Thank you for your review and feedback. We did have some service issues on the night and we were a little over subscribed. We always listen to our customers and we have decided to cop the numbers for next year, this way we can offer a more attentive service. regards, Andrew.
