We had a fantastic day at the races, ate upstairs with a brilliant balcony view. Food was endless and good quality. Close to town and stayed at the Marriott which is a 5 min walk.

We visit york every year, disappointed this year with county stand catering, cold food, poor seating arrangements, york have made some great improvements to complement the great standard of racing, but have some catering staff been replaced ?as we found it quite disappointing.

Response from Bryan R | Reviewed this property |
Be aware that Ebor day will be very busy with lots of coach parties there for the drinking and not the racing, this spoils the day for keen race goers as the crowd get drunk and tempers become frayed.
