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
West_Retford_Hotel, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS West Retford Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your review, I'm sorry you found certain aspects of your stay not to your expectations. Our rates do change subject to availability, type of room booked and the number of people in a room. The majority of rooms include breakfast in the price and also includes VAT at the current rate. We always check our prices compared to other similar sized venues and I believe we offer a fantastic product and value for money. All the bedrooms in the Georgian have recently been refurbished and are styled traditionally to complement the hotel, I believe they do. I'm sorry if they were not to your taste, the majority of our guests love the rooms and we do get some very nice feedback. Breakfast finishes at 10.00am after which point the buffet burners are switched off as we have to prepare for lunch service. The staff always replenish the dishes when they are getting low unless it is a few minutes before the end of service, at which point we cook fresh for any late arrivals and this reduces any waste. Taxis can be problematic sometimes as Retford is a relatively small town, we would always recommend they are booked in advance to save a lot of guests all trying to book late in the evening. I'm sorry you decided not to stay with us again in the future but I wish you well finding an alternative establishment. regards, Andrew.
