Easy directions - looking at it from the road doesn't prepare you from when you turn off to park. Lovely courtyard effect, with rooms around outside, and plenty of parking space. Receptionist/manageress couldn't have been more helpful. A big party was booked for that night, so she advised us, although we still had free choice, of when the best times... More

Stayed with My wife while attending the New Year's party at the Park Head. The whole experience was first class, from the moment we arrived with the smiling welcome from the receptionist. The room we stayed in could do with a little updating (I believe they are doing this as and when they can) but it was spotless and massive,... More

Would not recommend this hotel. We had booked dinner for the night we arrived but were not told that there was a private party that night and the following night.

Stayed here for one night as part of a Newmarket holiday , rooms spotlessly clean, very friendly staff, good car parking facilities , rooms a little noisy due to the plumbing but not a major issue. Breakfast was excellent, good choice, food hot, great sausages, friendly and efficient staff. I would stay here again .
