A last minute stay when everywhere was booked up with race goers. Our room was clean, spacious and had a really good sized shower. Breakfast was great and service friendly and efficient. Only downside was no dinner service on a weekend.

Sounds like a First World problem type of whinge but this hotel could go from good to great with air con in the rooms. Without it, bedrooms are stuffy and noisy in Summer as you have to sleep with windows open. That means city centre noise and deliveries late evening and early morning. Seems strange as hotel is a brand... More
