Best Western Plus West Retford Hotel.

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!

Owner Response
Andrew L, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS West Retford Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Shane, thank you for your review and feedback, however I feel I must point out to you that check-in is from 2.00pm. You arrived at 12.30pm well before our standard check-in time and therefore before the heating was scheduled to be turned on. A portable heater was brought to your room but was left outside when you failed to open your door. Guests may charge extras such as food and drink to their room if they have allowed us to pre-auth their credit/debit card at check-in. As you decided to pay when you arrived we did not have your details to charge, this is explained at check-in and there is also a sign on the reception stating this. I'm not too sure what you were expecting to see from your bedroom window? whilst we do have rooms overlooking the gardens some rooms do face the car park and should you have requested a garden view we would have been happy to accommodate you. The majority of our guests appreciate our executive rooms, I'm sorry it wasn't to your taste. regards, Andrew.
