The hotel is in good location right next to the racecourse and within walking distance of the city centre with its shops, restaurant and bars. The hop on, hop off City Sightseeing Tour Bus also goes past the hotel with a stop nearby. Prior to our stay we requested a room on the third floor as we were aware that... More

Really enjoyed our stay here. The room was very clean and was a good size for what we needed. Bathroom was very clean and shower was good. The hotel is in a great location and only a short walk to the main restaurants and bars. The only thing stopping this being a 5* review, was the breakfast. There was very... More

Located close to the city centre and the added value of being next to the racecourse. Lots of free parking next to the hotel. Breakfast buffet ok with a small selection of hot food. Room clean and tidy. Showing its age in places (but don't we all:-)

we stayed 3 nights and enjoyed our stay, the room was a bit hot due to the weather, a fan was provided which alleviated the problem, however, our main bugbear was the infuriating entrycard for the room, endless trips back and forth to reception to reset the damn thing, needs looking at as other guests experienced the same fault. the...

The Holiday Inn is adjacent to the racecourse and is only a 10 minute stroll from the town centre. There is ample free car parking available. We were in room 310 on the top floor which reception told us had been recently refurbished. The bathroom was very modern and the shower was hot and powerful. I'm not keen on the... More

Room and shower room were clean and spacious and generally comfortable although the bed was a bit on the soft side and not good for my back. We faced the road and did experience some traffic noise so a room facing the race track would be preferable. Breakfast was fine for us. Nice bar area and staff were lovely. In... More

I moved to the area rather suddenly with work and found the staff to be very helpful. They were able to suggest places to eat and visit, as well as good estate agents. My room was comfortable and well laid out.

We arrived from the train with large backpacks and extra hand held luggage after phoning ahead to see if they could store it for us for the day while we was out and about and came and checked in later. We arrived atleast an hour before check in but instead of just storing our bags the lady on reception offered... More
