Hotels In Newmarket

Posted by Nick Niesen on October 29th, 2010

As part of your stay in and around Cambridgeshire you will more than likely want to spend a couple of days exploring the nearby horse racing town of Newmarket. Steeped in horse racing tradition and home to the Jockey Club, Newmarket is a jewel on the Cambridgeshire/Suffolk border.

Although technically in Suffolk, Newmarket is surrounded on three sides by Cambridgeshire, and it has a CB postcode so it would be a shame to visit the county without a quick hop over the Suffolk border to sample this delightful town.

Thankfully, due mainly to the horse racing industry there are plenty of top class hotels in Newmarket. The Rutland Arms on the High Street offers first rate accommodation with easy access to the local pubs and restaurants. The White Hart Hotel a bit further up has the convenience of being next to a taxi rank, which is handy for the racing, but the pub below can be quite lively at weekends, which needs to be taken into consideration if you are travelling with a young family.

If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the High Street the Bedford Lodge hotel is situated about a mile or so down the exclusive Bury Road. The Bedford Lodge offers top class accommodation, along with a pool, gym and restaurant. A range of Spa treatments are also available at the health centre to make your stay that extra bit special.

If you are travelling on a budget there a number of decent B&B?s and Guest Houses scattered around the town and in the nearby villages such as Burwell, Exning and Chevely.

In summary, you should not have any difficulty in finding a selection of fine hotels in Newmarket. If you are visiting during May to July you should try and time it with one of the fabulous Newmarket Nights events. These combine a night at the races followed by a guest performance in the grandstand. Previous performers have included Jools Holland, Westlife and Girls Aloud and they are guaranteed to be a good night.
