We booked a week in a one bedroom apartment and could only manage one overnight stay before leaving. Why? the list is long but here's a summary - tiny kitchen, lack of kitchen appliances, dirty cutlery, breakfast pack contained eggs over a week out of date, broken knives, no bath robes, nowhere to plug in razor in bathroom, broken handles on bedside cabinets, broken hinges on bathroom cabinets, blind in kitchen window too short so footpath outside can look in,matress on bed very old and worn. Heavens need I go on?
We booked on the basis of expecting a luxury experience. Sadly this apartment does not match there claims. We had to leave and find another place to stay in Newmarket at great inconvenience and expense.
By the way, don't let this put you off Newmarket - lots to do especially if you like horses and horse racing.
