Older hotel nicely refurbished. Has lounge bar with food, sports bar & restaurant. Room was very spacious with nice bathroom and big soaker tub, heated towel rail. Mini fridge, kettle and goodies. There is no lift so struggled with suitcase. One would not want to have heavy luggage or racing equipment. The hotel is right beside the race track, a... More

Had to wait regularly for bacon, white bread, fried eggs... More

We stayed here as part of a National Trust Coach Holiday run by Just Go Travel. It is a clean hotel with reasonable rooms. Nothing special but more than adequate. The staff on reception were helpful as were the restaurant waiting staff. The bar was a little slow. Choices for breakfast were very good if you had an english breakfast.... More

Hotel full and my no smoking room stands of smoke, couldn't open the window as fridge motor outside making noise, then next morning no hot water and no TV, and the chap on reception didn't care a bit, only after complaining did I eventually get 25% off my room rate, as for no hot water what did I expect?
