Escape to an 18th Century Georgian manor house.

The Best Western Plus West Retford Hotel lies within walking distance of historic Retford itself. That makes it perfect for getting out and about, with Sherwood Forest and Lincoln also nearby!

Set in 5 acres of landscaped gardens however, you'd be forgiven for spending as much time as possible in and around the hotel. But if you do venture out, the warmest traditional Nottinghamshire hospitality will be waiting back at the Best Western Plus West Retford Hotel on your return.

Close to sporting, cultural and historic attractions, a stay at the Best Western Plus West Retford Hotel gives guests ample opportunity to explore the local area. Museums, abbeys and even wetlands are all within easy reach!

Thank you for taking the time to place a 5 star review with us. We regularly price check against similar size and quality venues in the area and whilst we are not at the lower end we are not at the higher end either. Are prices do fluctuate to demand and you will always get a better deal if you book several weeks in advance of your arrival. I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and hope you will return again. regards, Andrew.
