My husband and I got married at the West Retford on 13th June. We could not be happier with the service we received from the hotel throughout the planning of our wedding and especially on the day. I initially had my heart set on the ceremony being outside in the new pagoda, but unfortunately the weather was terrible. This didn't affect our day and in the end, I think having everyone closer together inside made the experience more personal. The one difficulty with this was that our guests had to disperse into the rest of the hotel where I would imagine they imposed on other hotel guests that were not at our wedding, as evening guests started to arrive it also got a little tight in there. I found the staff to be helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them, especially Fran, I don't think words can do justice how much of a credit Fran is. She is affable, bubbly and friendly. She ensured the whole day flowed from one step to the next. The food was wonderful, both in the day and the evening buffet.
I stayed for two nights, one in the complementary room and one in the bridal suite and both were lovely and spacious, modern and well equipped. Our only issue is that we can't do it all over again. Thank you to all at the West Retford. less
