Called down to reception and was told a heater will be bought to our room.We were told the heating had only been fixed that day but all our block was freezing. Two days later it had still... More

After some years I returned to the White Hart to see that it had been refurbished. The rooms where great, great bathroom. Had a great nights sleep after an evening at the new race course. Will be returning soon. Thanks to Steve and the team for looking after us

We only stayed here for one night but were very impressed. The staff were friendly & the room was very comfortable with tasteful decor. I must admit my expectations were not very high as the price was so reasonable in comparison to other hotels in the area. The restaurant was also very reasonably priced with perfectly good food. The noise... More

We stayed in the old part of the hotel, really comfortable room and everything spotlessly clean. For such a quaint building we had every mod con. It was a very cold weekend but the curtains kept in the heat very well. The staff were all friendly and welcoming and breakfast in the morning was excellent.
