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!

One night stay only

26/11/2016 zak_neutron,

While we only used the room for getting ready for a night out and staying the one night ; the room was very good. The room itself was not in the main building but a separate area. The room was clean... more

I booked a cottage room for a one night stay as a special treat for us rather than an ordinary room. The room was a decent size and was very clean, bed was a good size and very comfortable and we had ... more

Andrew L, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS West Retford Hotel, responded to this review
Dear AlexEastYorkshire, Thank you for your comments and I'm pleased you were happy with some aspects of the room. The roll top bath is not advertised anywhere as being suitable for 2 people. The bath is located in the room itself and is a little awkward for shelving but I will review this. The shower in the actual bathroom is a double width shower, rectangular base. I have tested the shower-head and found the pressure was suitable, I've not had any other complaints regarding the pressure. Toiletries in the room are 30ml sizes which we have found to be the best size for the majority of our guests and the right balance for less waste. Fresh toiletries are supplied for subsequent days and we would have been happy to supply extra if you had enquired. As in most hotels the room service menu is a reduced choice from our main menus in the hotel. There are 16 items on our room service menu covering starters, mains and desserts. If there was anything specific that you required during your stay our chefs are most accommodating. Robes are available upon request as detailed in the guest information brochure in each room. I hope these small issues have not deterred you from staying with us again in the near future. regards, Andrew.

Its the little things...

21/11/2016 Lin Z,

Its the little things that were missing that made this stay average. No shelf in the bathroom to put your toothbrush on, instead the toiletries ( what little of them there were) were placed on the bac... more
