Hotel is very nice - large rooms, good gym. If you love horse racing, then rooms have view of the race course. Although the hotel is not very far from city centre (10-15 mins drive), however, there is nothing in the immediate surrounding area. You will need a taxi or car to get into town. Walking is not possible. No shopping complexes / shops within walking distance.
During horse racing season, the hotel is great. rooms have balcony and you can sit in your balcony to enjoy the horse racing, although prices of rooms during this period is absolutely crazy!!
we also had coffee at the lounge on the ground floor... was terrible.. coffee tasted like water.
