“Unbeatable value and first class staff”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

I stayed in Newmarket area last week and paid £270. I paid £95 here so I did not expect too much. I was surprised to find a full service country hotel in the middle of Newmarket. The rooms are fully air conditioned, great bed with quality pillows and bedding and all the little touches you expect in a good 4 star.
Food was good and all the staff are friendly and professional from the receptionist to the turn down lady.
I would happily pay a lot more to stay here and twice as much when there was racing on.

Great hotel, pleasant staff, lovely rooms all as previous reviewers, so if you are using the hotel highly recommended.....but please do something with your association with The Jockey Club / Newmarket race nights.
the package would work well if a courtesy bus was laid on so as not to rely on the lack of organisation of the racecourse. Over 2 hours to get back to the hotel. if it was a one off - unfortunate, but according to staff, taxi drivers and incompetent stewards at Newmarket apparently this happens every year!

This was booked as a special birthday celebration for my friend we had booked the hotel,races and madness package through the hotel although the hotel is absolutely beautiful and would love to stay there again we were very disappointed with the organisation of travel back from the races to the hotel after the evening had finished, the staff at Newmarket were totally incompetent it was just chaos trying to get a taxi back we were told to join a que but other people were just coming out and stopping taxis before they got to the que we asked staff to do something as this wasnt fair but they didnt so being british we carried on waiting for 1 and 1/2 hours only to be told that there would be no more taxis by another useless member of staff and after everyone erupted with anger were told by someone else it was a mistake and there would be more, unfortunately this spoiled the event for us and would not go again I feel the hotel should organise a shuttle bus for people as part of the package because i would say that nearly everyone in the hotel was going to the same event and we were told by the taxi driver this happens all the time so there is no excuse!

This is a really good hotel with tasteful furnishings and exceptionally nice polite staff who are a credit to this hotel. The food is really nice and prices of food and drink are reasonable for a hotel of this standard. On the down side as it was a very hot day, we went for a swim to cool down in the indoor pool, but the temperature outside the pool was so hot it was quite unbearable to stay in the pool area too long. They do not have an outside area where you could have sat or sunbathed. We had booked this hotel as a Newmarket Summer Nights Package (Madness was the act) but the problem is you have to book your own transport to get to the Races and we were told you cannot pre book cabs to come home, you have to queue for the cabs. It took us 2 hours to get a cab which is ridiculous, the hotel should either run a courtesy bus or have an arrangement with a cab company to pre book for the return journey. This ruined a great evening.

If you are going to Newmarket this is the place to stay. We went racing last week and this was our first time staying here, it certainly won't be the last. We loved it. Beautifully decorated, friendly staff, convenient location. It is not cheap, but it is worth the extra cost for extra class.

Room Tip: Book months in advance if you are going to the racing.

Stayed for 6 nights in June, perhaps the best hotel in Newmarket. Ground floor room at the back with a view of one of the Newmarket stables. The room was well appointed, love the Molton Brown products plus the bed and pillows were great, no trouble getting a good nights sleep. The Breakfast menu is excellent and the bar food is varied and well presented.

The negative points are it took 2 days to get a replacement kettle to the room, the coffee sachets in the room were not correctly replaced; service at the bar when it is busy can be a little slow and the room rate goes up dramatically on weekend Newmarket race days, 165 to 260.

The hotel has a thriving wedding trade which tends to spill over into the public rooms not leaving much space for other guests.

This is a good hotel that with just a little more attention to detail could be very good, but I will continue to use it as I still like it.

Room Tip: If you are not in one of the suites and want a quieter room then go for a room at the end of the cor...

Loved it here. Nice room, spotless modern with lovely bathroom. Had dinner in the restaurant which was very nice with great service. Staff were excellent. Will definitely return and recommend. My only criticism is the restaurant is a bit dark in the back section and feels a bit gloomy so go for a table at the front .

Room Tip: If you want to watch the horses get a room overlooking the back
