Room - clean (pity no Air con) and comfortable. Reception staff very friendly - Breakfast - I enjoyed it (I'm a vegetarian) but my wife was disappointed because there was no bacon (Hence 4 instead of 5 stars)

Room 216. I booked the hotel through booking.com for one night after visiting some friends and family. We were pleasantly greeted at reception and checked in quite swiftly. A few benefits of the hotel (especially for a ridiculously hot day) was the on site ice machine. A real life saver considering 30 degree heat and the ice machine is not... More

Great location, easy to go anywhere near the city centre. Good parking place and safe for your car. During the races a lot of people stay there! The staff was helpful, however I expected something more about their facilities.

Nice, clean room with good view of the racecourse, great central location. We came for a long weekend; we were particularly impressed with the customer service of the night staff, Angela was fantastic, giving us local knowledge and an overall great night in the hotel bar, really going the extra mile to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Would highly recommend!
