This hotel looks lovely from outside but for price paid I was very disappointed with rooms. They are very dated and could seriously do with updating - more like a B & B than an expensive hotel! Also they are not actually in the hotel but in an annexe to the side which isn't very good in the rain! As it was quite warm and there was no air conditioning, we tried to open the window, which we managed eventually as it seemed to be glued shut. However, it didn't stay open and slowly closed itself, which was very frustrating. The weekend we stayed, there appeared to be at least 2 weddings which resulted in the guests more or less taking over the whole hotel and making it impossible to get a drink at the bar, it was as though we were invisible to the staff as they were only interested in helping the wedding guests. It would have been helpful when I contacted the hotel prior to booking to be advised that there were weddings booked. We ended up going into Retford itself for a meal and a drink instead. Then at around 1 am the wedding guests decided to come back to their rooms and were very noisy in the corridor as well as in the rooms so can only assume the walls are paper thin. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone and would certainly not be staying again.
