Thank you for your kind comments regarding the hotel and your bedroom. I'm afraid I can't explain the lack of hot water due to the fact that we've had not other complaints.

My wife, me and our 3 year old stay here when visiting my father in law in Retford. The double rooms with extra bed are generously sized en suite. All very clean. The food is very good both evening and breakfast.

We were easily able to find something to suit. The wine carte was divided up in a novel way and the descriptions were helpful. Scallops on a potato purée base and with...

We stayed at this hotel whilst visiting friends in Retford. This was our second visit! The rooms are spacious and clean! All staff were helpful and friendly! The "Full English" breakfast is certainly worth having! Will be returning!
