Spent two nights here and hardly managed to get any sleep at all. this was supposed to a relaxing weekend away but turned into a nightmare. Spent each day with my eyes hanging out of my head from not sleep. felt like is was being tortured. we had a roadfront room facing the racecourse and the noise is unbelievable, at night you can hear the cars coming from the top of the hill. I cant stress enough how bad the car noise is, believe me check before you book that your room doesn't face the main road or you will regret it. The rooms that face the back alleyway would probably blocked the car noise but im not certain.
The building fronts directly onto a very busy road that has constant traffic both day and night. The level of road noise was shocking, we thought at first that the windows were open - they were not! . Be warned also that this is one of those places that only opens it's reception at certain times. We requested an early check in when we booked on line, but arrived to find the door locked and a notice saying that reception did not open until 2pm - if you request an early check, an email to let you know it's not possible would at least be courteous.
Accommodation itself was clean but the carpet stinks and is mouldy and semi wet, not nice to walk on with bare feet, but otherwise generally a little tired and dull. Would have all been tolerable if not for the road noise. This place may be OK if you can get one of the apartments not facing the road, because of the location if you are going to the races. otherwise suggest you give it a big miss unless you have sleeping pills or like sleeping next to a noise dragway.
