The privacy and relaxed atmosphere, Gill and Malcome were great
Very comfortable room Lovely hosts Nice breakfast
I very much liked the warm welcome. I also liked the facilities in the room including; fridge with water, orange juice and milk, the cereal and the crockery and cutlery available for guests to use. I would recommend Gardener's Lodge to colleagues.
Purely based on my own laziness and the fact that I was travelling on business using public transport and taxis. The lack of local facilities such as a restaurant or pub serving food. The town centre however is a short walk away (see I told you I was lazy).
Lovely little 1 room B&B. Room as its own private entrance and has use of a terrace which is great on a sunny day I'm sure. Very friendly welcome from Gill and Mal, comfy room and a great breakfast. Would highly recommend.
If was being very picky I'd say it'd be good to get some toiletries in the bathroom other than just one piece of soap. But I probably shouldn't expect that for the price I paid, and I shouldn't have forgotten my shower gel!
privacy and breakfast
bedroom very light
The room was like a trendy apartment, gorgeous and immaculate. The welcome was lovely and genuine.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that I wasn't in a typical b&b but rather a purpose made room at the back of the owner's house - i had a very warm welcome and was given lots of useful info about how to get into town and where to eat, the room was lovely and every need was catered for. breakfast in bed was an added bonus! I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to others.
Was in the area for a wedding and this option was ideal for a short overnight stay. Very welcoming owners, nice room, breakfast in bed, privacy. Great value for money in comparison to significantly more expensive hotel options in the nearby area. Would happily stay there again if ever back in area
The welcome was super as we arrived late after a concert nearby. The breakfast was great and just what the doctor ordered after the night before. We'll be back.
Me and the partner was made to feel very welcome
The room is self contained, very spacious, the owner gill, is very pleasant, and friendly, we would defo stay again , nice home cooked breakfast, brought to your room in the morning
I was delighted with the accommodation and the great hospitality of the owner and his family. My stay was very comfortable and my tasty breakfast delivered to the room, right on time. I would certainly stay there again. Sir John Jones
Nice, quiet place to stay, friendly hosts.
Nothing, will come again
The location is great and the fact that you have your own emtrance, so once you arrive its all yours. The welcome and the breakfast are brilliant.
That it was separate from the main house.
Can 't name anything I Didn't like.
Lovely little B & B (one room) with own entrance. Clean, comfortable and the owner is great. Nice touches like chilled water and juice in fridge, tea and coffee. Lovely cooked breakfast and other breakfast bits if we wanted. Easy walk into Retford. Would definitely use again and would recommend. Thanks
This is just a personnal thing. I like a dark room when I as sleeping. However the room was very bright (which is also a plus point) especially because of large windown in ceiling. I would probably bring eye mask next time. However most people would not have an issue with this and it would not stop me recommending
own entrance and separate from the main house. The ceiling fanlight blind drawn could reveal a good starry night The residential area being very quiet.
Everything was perfect for us. On arrival we met Gill and her very friendly and helpful family, Gill took us to our annexe like accommodation and showed us where everything was ... fridge with milk, water and juice, useful cutlery and crockery, heating controls etc. Gill took our breakfast order for the following morning, which was delicious and it was really nice to be able to eat in our room.
Friendly welcome from the owners. Bed was very comfortable and having breakfast brought to you in the morning in your room was a nice touch. Separate access from the house was a bonus as we had a late night and did not get back to the room till the early hours so were able to get back to the room without disturbing anyone. Would highly recommend this B&B.
Most welcoming owners, excellent facilities and everything you need for a good night's rest. Would highly recommend and look forward to a return visit.
Lovely owners, great breakfast, quiet location
No wifi in the room
It was quiet and clean, exactly what I wanted.
There was no one home when I arrived.
Staff were very helpful, phoned through to see when we were coming. Very well organised.
We really liked having our own space (seperate entrance), breakfast served in our own room and very helpful owners who went out of their way when we were rushing to get to a wedding.
