Brand spanking new but no teething problems that i could detect.The great thing about this hotel is the staff who were simply delightful. Who ever was responsible for staff recruitment is a genius.
As a general rule Horse Racing followers tend to be slightly eccentric and that was certainly the case with our group from http://flatstats.co.uk . To host such a client group you need staff with a sense of humour and be able to combine this sense of fun with courteousness and efficiency.Remarkably this has been achieved.
I guess the average age of this staff group to be 25. I had direct encounters with several of them. Kirsty in the bar, Kim in the restaurant-both delightful, the restaurant manager- i think was called Dirk--and although English was not his first language-he had a highly developed wit which put everyone at their ease .
So Staff 11/10 (francesca, oliver, matt, rachel and scott were the names of some of the other delightful staff we were luck to have looking after us
we were on the Racing package which is great value £100 a night for Dinner, Bed , Breakfast and Premier Enclosure entrance to lingfield racecourse. Normally a fixed rate inclusive menu is full of food options that either look tired or look fine but really are tired -when they arrive. This kitchen managed to produce faultless, flavoursome food and with no delays or mistakes and within the set menu package. Pretty damn impressive for such a new team.
lingfield racecourse encloses the hotel-so there is no walking distance and therefore the hotel would be ideal for racegoers with mobility problems.
If you like Golf the hotel is in the middle of a golf course- so again you can roll out of bed straight onto the first tee..
Location --you can see that for yourself.Cleanliness 10/10Rooms --Simple, comfortable and elegant with views over the Race or Golf courses.
There are extra facilities like a swimming pool and a spa which i did not personally
in summary I would be happy to stay at this hotel with or without the Racing or the Golf.I hope the standard can be maintained and congratulate whoever was responsible for putting this team of staff together.
