Booked this hotel as we were visiting Newmarket races. Paid £165 for a suite inc breakfast. The Rutaland Arms is on Newmarket High St with a small free car park round the back of the hotel. Suite 111 was a good size, it had a large four poster style bed and seating area with views over the high st and a nice size bathroom. If your a light sleeper be warned that the bleeping from the pedestrian crossing would seriously annoy you!
The hotel itself has a rustic English charm about it.
The breakfast was excellent. When we arrived it was really busy but the staff soon found us a table. There was a very good choice of juices, cereals and fruit but the main thing was the speed of service considering it was busy. Within 10-15 mins our tea, toast and very tasty full english breakfast had all arrived with a smile.
If your going to the races the course provides a free shuttle sevice. If you turn left out of the hotel the pick up point is about 100yards down the High St outside Hughes electrical shop.
Another recommendation is the Fountain chinese restaurant at the opposite end of the High St to the clock. Very good food which tasted even better after a few winners paid for the bill :)
Overall a good hotel with friendly staff, right in the centre of the town.
