Wow, reading the negative reviews of this hotel, I can't believe we were staying in the same place. We loved the very large, airy room with a balcony overlooking the race course. It had a spacious comfortable lobby area. The room had plenty of electrical outlets (something we found hard to come by in NZ), a nice desk and chair for journal writing, eating table, a large bathroom with a corner jacuzzi tub, making for a roomy shower. The desk staff competent, friendly and helpful. My wife especially appreciated the free laundry facility in a comfortable laundry room. The breakfast buffet, included with our room, was also very good, offering eggs, sausage, bacon and beans as well as assorted cold items. My wife did comment on how cold the dining room was.
I did downgrade the hotel a star because of the scandalously expensive internet, no wi-fi in the room, and the fact that we returned at 3:00 PM, after being gone from early morning, to find no maid service. But over all, we enjoyed our stay and would return to this hotel in a minute.
