Hotels in Retford

Retford Town Hall - Low Res

There are many hotels in Retford given the beautiful surrounding countryside and nearby attractions that make it a very enjoyable base for a weekend break.

Stay at one of the many hotels in Retford and you’ll be able to visit the quaint nearby villages of Babworth and Scrooby. Famed for their links with the Pilgrim Fathers that went on to settle inAmerica, these villages hosted the first congregations of Bradford and Brewster’s separatist movement.

Here’s our brief list of some of the available hotels in Retford that you may want to consider for a short break or a stop over on your way through the country.

The Best Western West Retford Hotel is set in a Georgian building and is very well located on the outskirts of the town centre. The gardens are lovely making it a popular venue for weddings.

Ye Olde Bell is a 4 star hotel set in a 17th century coaching inn. Recently awarded 4 star status, the restaurant and traditional feel to the hotel is very welcoming. Cosy on up to a real log fire and relax at this excellent hotel located at nearby Barnby Moor.

The Clumber Park Hotel and Spa really does offer something different for visitors. As the name suggests, the location is a little removed from Retford but has convenient access given its close location to the A1 junction nearby and the National Trust property of ClumberPark together with the superb spa facilities meant this hotel had to be included.

If your considering staying over at one of these hotels in Retford then please do explore the beautiful nearby countryside.

Grown ups will like the nearby attraction of Springhead Fine Ales, maker of the popular Roaring Meg. You can take a tour around the brewery before heading off to Meg’s Bar for a few samples afterwards.

Children will love the nearby Sundown Adventureland a popular theme park for the under 10s, well established with a Robin Hood world, Rocky Mountain Railroad and much more.

A stay in one of the hotels in Retford will definitely be rewarded.
