It is a nice hotel with really nice people who are working there. The breakfast is great as well as the rooms with the queens size beds and the spa tub. You habe a nice view over the horse racing place and a big car park in the back of the hotel. :)

Really lovely hotel. Beds very comfortable. Breakfast was awesome-so yum and so many choices. My only complaints are that the gym and pool were closed and the room was very hot. The fan provided didnt work well. Needs air conditioning. Will definitely stay again. Very close to supermarket.
