Great hotel shame about the staff in the restaurant
The hotel itself was great. We got a good deal and paid less than the usual rate. The room was nice, open and airy, with big windows to allow the sun in. Beds were really comfortable too. We ate in the restaurant which was very nice, although the waiter was very poor. There was only one other group of people eating when we arrived and the waiter told us to wait whilst he processed their order, instead of sitting us down and then dealing with it. We stood waiting for 10 minutes whilst he messed about walking back and forth and inputting it onto the screen. God knows how he'd cope if he had a full restaurant? He didn't ask if we wanted drinks at all so we asked for the drinks menu which he gave. He didn't come back for 20 minutes and was nowhere to be seen. When he came back he didn't come to our table so we asked him if we could order our drinks now. We asked him what took so long and he said "sorry I had to go to a room for a little while." Most bizarre. This really let down the whole experience as otherwise it would have been a great stay.

Lovely hotel and friendly staff
Good sized rooms and tasteful decor
we always get a good welcome here. every room we have stayed in has been clean and comfortable. the new orangery is a bonus! the breakfast is well cooked and the choice is good. the hotel is also in easy walking distance of the market town centre.

Good location, bar food but cold rooms
Bar food was excellent and reasonable price.
Our room was on the ground floor of the annex and had no heating we complained and they turned up the boiler which made no difference to the room temperature as the radiators did not work. It was left to the second day which again was not fixed, it being a cold October wet week this was not good and spoilt the stay. The breakfast said served to 0930 but on our first day at 0900 it was all cleared away, nothing left! We were served coffee/tea and toast but not the buffet breakfast. The second day we arrived at 0800 and there was a good buffet breakfast with also cooked items, very reasonable. The bar area was heated and the food good, recommend for evening meal.

A very pleasant environment.
Good size room, wholesome breakfast
We stayed as part of a large group of family and friends for a wedding in the area. All our needs were catered for with good rooms and breakfast. The bar meals were adequate for a get together in the evening. Late bar access was also useful. Beautiful gardens.

A very pleasant stay
Good location, good service and a very comfortable room
They ran out of about half the elements of the cooked breakfast over 40 mins before the end of service
The West Retford Hotel is a great option if you are using Retford train station. The rooms are very comfortable but breakfast was chaotic to say the least. The staff seemed to be running about but most things had run out and we had to join a queue of about 6 tables waiting for the one jar of ketchup. My toddler wailed when the, now empty, jar finally arrived. I think that if they sort out the breakfast service, then I would recommend it highly.

Best Western Retford
Near to the town, main roads, and probably good for functions but not the best for a couple of nights stay.
