We stayed for 2 nights over the weekend for ladies day at the races. The hotel is situated literally across the road from the train station and close to the town centre. The hotel is lovely and the decor is great and well worth just walking around it and take it all in. Our room was on the 2nd floor overlooking the car park at the rear. The room was far too hot with no zircon and speaking to other people they didn't have zircon either but interestingly every room had a fan; obviously they know its too hot as i have never been inn a hotel room with a fan in the wardrobe. The room self was ok, nothing fab, just ok. No iron and only 1 socket which makes it difficult to charge phones and to use hair dry/curlers etc because you are fixed at being in one place. Bed comfy and linen clean. Bathroom good, shower head powerful but small and the screen didn't really protect the floor from becoming saturated.
The breakfast was very good and stayed hot which s always good for a buffet. The other annoying thing, apart from it being too hot, was that parking is £15 per day at the weekend and £10 during the week. Bar also very expensive and more expensive than the race course. e.g. £5 a pint and £9 for a G & T and lemonade!! less

Thank you for your review - it is most appreciated.
I understand entirely that it was a very warm weekend and I am sorry it made you uncomfortable. We are not often blessed by such good weather, and it is therefore not usually an issue. We do, however, offer 87 brand new superior rooms with full air conditioning and digital climate control for a very reasonable upgrade charge.
I am delighted you enjoyed our breakfast. We certainly go to town with the 'most important meal of the day', and nothing better than after a night out prior.
We hope to welcome you back to the Queen Hotel.
