Free parking Staff friendly, breakfast nice & lots of choice. Checkout 11am. Clean room. Good wifi. Plenty of tv channels. Negatives: very uncomfortable bed. My partner and I woke up with... More

Stayed one night, room okay, bar okay, location excellent. No frills, but no issues. Would recommend if you are looking for a place to sleep very close to either the racecourse or the town centre. Can't fault it.

Great location. Standard room you'd expect with all the essentials. Great for the free parking, free wife and free breakfast. Great price of room. No hassle, easy check-in and stress free experience. Just what you'd expect for the price.

The hotel is in an ideal location within a short walk from the many attractions of the city, and immediately next to the racecourse. Our room was larger than we expected, but lack of storage space meant we left most of our clothes in our suitcase. There's no air-conditioning but a fan was provided. Breakfast was excellent, well-cooked and with... More

This place is perfectly adequate if you just want a base for a couple of nights. The rooms are slightly small, but this is a budget hotel chain. Breakfast was fine and it was nice to have the fresh fruit salad and yoghurt. A plus is the help-yourself tea, coffee and fruit juice available all the time. It was good... More
