After a time we decided to take a couple of days just to chill out, having been to the hotel for training courses we thought it would be ideal, plenty of parking not too far from the city but far enough away to be quiet. The building is old and looks like a grand old house which is much more inviting than it's competitor just a little way down the road. The staff are superb and nothing is a bother for them, very refreshing that they have grasped the concept of customer service. We stayed in a grandstand room that had a balcony overlooking the racecourse and whilst the room was nice there were a couple of issues with the cleanliness of the valance on the bed and that underneath the drawers had not been fully hoovered for some time, you could tell that they had just gone around the unit (no big deal, but one of us has allergy to dust). The furniture is a little tired and would benefit from updating. The hotel uses Streamline Taxis and I have to say they are brilliant, courteous and friendly. We had a light bite upon arrival in the bar and it was lovely just enough to fill the gap. We enjoyed it so much that we decided to dine in the hotel on our second evening and weren't disappointed, our steaks were cooked beautifully. The breakfast buffet was extensive with lots of choice and the fact that there was a chef on hand to cook you something a little different was nice. All in all we would definitely stay here again.
