The hotel is nearly new so the rooms are still in good condition. We had an Enviable Room, which included a freestanding bath and wash basin in the bedroom as well as a bathroom with shower. The lighting behind the headboard was a nice touch. For some the beds may be a little soft. Both the bedroom and bathroom were large. The bedroom had a cd/mp3 player and LCD tv. The hotel is one quarter of a circular building so half the rooms overlook the centre plaza and the others overlook the main road and racecourse.
The only slightly odd feature is the need to swipe the keycard to access your floor, so you can't access another floor other than the reception or restaurant floors. Also the main lifts do not go down to the car park. There is a separate lift that appears to reach all floors. Car parking is available beneath the hotel in a secure car park. Staff are friendly and helpful.
The Michael Caines restaurant on the 5th floor is excellent. Try the grazing menue and ask the wine waiter to select matching wines. The breakfast is also excellent.
The ground floor Michael Caines bar & grill is also good, but has a limited menue. I recommend both.
