“Planning?”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Why cannot the staff at Lingfield Park plan? It is not a shock to you that Ladies Day at Lingfield Races is going to be busy. You know how many tickets you sell each year and then add the Groupon offer and it is going to be packed.
Each time I come for a Race Day/ Tribute Band evening (which are great fun by the way), it is impossible to buy a drink! The food areas seem to get it right.
The Groupon offer ran out of Pimms 3 weeks before we came to the races?? How, I have no idea. It took between 30 and 60 minutes to get a drink! Several beers, vodka and lemonade ran out before the racing even finished! You could not pay on a card once you were served and to top it off, the cash machine ran out!
Bring in more staff! More staff means selling more drinks! Which in all means more money! How can you get it wrong at every race day? If not, allow us to bring in our own drinks!

“Just brilliant!”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

Planned a racing/hotel stay here for my racing and husband for his 50th.
Despite a challenge on booking that our racecourse view may not be guaranteed I spoke to hutch who then proceeded to ensure everything went smoothly.
Impeccable staff from presentation , customer service skills & overall commitment to ensuring your stay is flawless.
Spa is nice for a a little respite. Amazing room with a balcony overlooking the course where we perched for a couple of the races.
Well done marriott lingfield highly impressed

“Behind the scene tour.”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

The behind the scene tour was so much better than we were expecting, thanks by and large to Geoff who brought the whole experience together and answered all our questions, with great knowledge and understanding. Couldn't find a winner all night, except for Geoff!

“Race Day”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

Enjoyed a behind the scenes tour and found it very interesting. Only had a pasty and coffee for lunch and although a little pricey it was very tastey.
A very enjoyable day, even won a little.

“Great day of racing.”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

We were here for the Derby Trials and had a great day. We had lunch in the main restaurant with excellent views across the course. Service,food and drink all good. Bets taken at the table with plenty of addition TV's showing all the action. Will no doubt be back next year.
