  • The stay and accommodation met all expectations for our group of 12. Just one point - it would be good to know up-front that only group bookings are taken - that would have saved us some administration time with our booking. We were able to sort things out after obtaining the racecourse email address, but couldn't get adequate responses through Bookit. Also, some people are asking, what is the minimum group size, for possible future use. Thank you.
