The hotel is in an ideal location within a short walk from the many attractions of the city, and immediately next to the racecourse.
Our room was larger than we expected, but lack of storage space meant we left most of our clothes in our suitcase. There's no air-conditioning but a fan was provided.
Breakfast was excellent, well-cooked and with a surprisingly good choice of hot and cold food. We didn't mind using trays and clearing away our plates after eating, and the variety of self-serve hot drinks was a plus.
Our room overlooked the racecourse and was very close to the railway line. We didn't find the noise from the trains a problem at all, but there was a building housing electrical equipment of some kind just beneath our window which we did find intrusive.
The staff were cheerful and friendly.
We look forward to staying here again - a perfect location and excellent value.
