About

The finest of hotels in Retford, Nottinghamshire; perfect for business or leisure


Nestled in the village of Barnby Moor and surrounded by the green fields of the Nottinghamshire countryside, Ye Olde Bell Hotel & Spa is in an idyllic rural setting, yet only minutes from the A1 and close to Newark, Retford and Doncaster; ideally located for both business and leisure trips.

Since the 17th century, Ye Olde Bell has been a sanctuary of rest for weary travellers. From highway men to high powered businesspeople, the hotel has provided high quality food, drink and accommodation to travellers both past and present.

Four poster beds, luxury roll-top baths, and separate walk-in power showers set the standard at Ye Olde Bell. With a range of individually-styled, luxurious rooms and suites to choose from, the hotel offers a range of accommodation options, from Classic to Superior rooms, rooms for single travellers, as well as suites and lodges for larger parties.

As one of the best restaurants near Doncaster, Ye Olde Bell's Restaurant Bar 1650, secured an AA Rosette dining award for the its mix of modern and classic cuisine. For those more special occasions, the champagne bar in Restaurant Bar 1650 is the perfect place to celebrate and popular with both residents and non-residents alike.

If you don't require a more formal dining experience, then the vibrant atmosphere of our St Leger Bistro-by-the-Bar offers bar food and lunches in a more informal and relaxed setting.

In 2017 we opened our multi-million pound Spa with eleven different spa experiences including the World's first Snowstorm treatment and one of only three Stonebath steam rooms in the UK. With indoor and outdoor vitality pools and individual treatment rooms, the spa represents the natural and modern evolution of Ye Olde Bell as a sanctuary of rest.
