Spent a lovely night here recently with my husband. We had reviewed this hotel before we came and some of the reviews weren't so good but we found it to be clean, comfortable and well situated.

Stayed at this hotel after the races on 18tn June. It's a bit confusing because the hotel and bar/restuant are run by different people but it's all good. Everyone very helpful and friendly and working together. Rooms are motel like with their own front door, small but well appointed and continental breakfast delivered to your door. Great checkout time of... More
