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!

Dear Ann, thank you for your review and I'm pleased you were happy with your bedroom and facilities. Unfortunately smoking guests tend to leave the door open from time to time, however we do have a night porter from 11.00pm - 7.00am and one of his jobs is ensure the door is locked after hours. This door is also covered by our CCTV. I hope you will use the hotel again in the near future. regards, Andrew.

Dear Ann, thank you for your review and comments. Our cream tea is advertised as 2 home made scones with jam and clotted cream, along with tea or coffee which is served at your table. This is priced at £5.95. A cream tea is meant as more of a snack than a main meal to fill you. If you were particularly hungry you could have opted for our afternoon tea which is comprised of a selection of finger sandwiches, scones and an assortment of cakes. This is priced at £10.95 per person. If you decide to try our afternoon tea in the future please email me directly at and I will be happy to offer you a complimentary glass of sparkling wine. regards, Andrew
