Reviewed 15 June 2014

Recently returned from my son`s wedding which was held in its entirety at this venue.
To begin,we were fortunate enough to have lovely weather which, enabled the service to be held in the finely manicured gardens.Music for the occasion was provided via cd burnt by yours truly and played on the hotels boom box system which worked surprisingly well!! The only gripe one could have with regard to the service is that, there was no amplification to the lady registrars voice which meant that many people could not hear the vows being taken.The afternoon was spent dining in a beautifully decorated restaurant which would later become the venue for the evening reception with disco and buffet. This had the advantage of having its own bar for use in the evening thereby allowing other residents the use of the hotel bar which you could also escape to should you felt that way inclined!! The food provided on both occasions was very good, particularly, the profiteroles in the afternoon which, were more like footballs,and the potato skins in the evening were very tasty!
The room we were allocated was in the annexe and was light and airy and exceptionally clean.It also had a lovely view over the garden to where the scene of the wedding had taken place. Breakfast in the morning was excellent with a combination of buffet and waitress service,the smoked haddock and poached egg was quality!!
During our stay all members of staff were polite and cheery and did their utmost to ensure this special day was just that and, should you be looking for a venue for such an event, I have no hesitation in recommending the West Retford. Well done to all concerned!

Room Tip: Room thirty has a nice garden view!

Thank you for your review, it appears everyone did have a fantastic day. I will make sure all the staff are aware of your comments. As you are aware the registrars are appointed by the local council and will not use a microphone. We hope to welcome you back in the near future.
Regards, Andrew.

Rooms are clean and tidy. Friendly staff. The breakfast was very good and available from 06:30, so good when working in the area. Plenty of car parking space and has a barrier for extra security. Good access to town centre. Some good restaurants locally.

Spent our wedding night here on June 4th, excellent quick check in, lovely room with four poster bed, tastefully decorated, and well equiped.
Superb choice at breakfast, with fresh toast you do yourself through a machine. i chose the full english which is ordered (not a buffet) but was a bit of a let down if i'm honest,(only one rasher of bacon) and i think everything except the egg had been cooked in the deep fat fryer, so not very impressed with that.
but the hotel was nice.

Just had seven nights at the Best Western Retford Hotel. We were very happy, the rooms are spacious, comfortable and on ground level for us oldies. The meals are excellent, either in the bar or in the dining room, but best are the staff; from the front Receptionist to the Bar lads and the lovely ladies in the breakfast room. They made our stay absolutely fantastic. Nothing was too much for them. A big thank you and recommendation.

Room Tip: Ground floor for easy access, plenty of parking.

Lovely hotel and ideally situated for my couple of days on business at West Burton & Cottom Powerstations. The grounds to the rear would be lovely in the warmth of the summer sun. (It rained in my stay)
Rooms are great with cosy feel although the only fault with them would be that they could be a little lighter.
A colleague of mine stayed here just recently on my recommendation and was very pleased.
Food was great also. Will stay here again.

We stayed at the West Retford hotel as we were visiting friends. Owe used the bar as a meeting place. They were kid friendly and looked after our every need and it was great being able to walk around on the beautiful grounds. We didn't book in advance but received a walk in rate and we were pleasantly surprised by the cost.
