The Race is on for Royal Ascot Hotels at LateRooms.

April 25, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Following a £200 million redevelopment programme of the Grandstand and Ascot Racecourse track which has taken 18 months to complete, visitor numbers this year are predicted to be higher than ever. The work has been completed just in time to coincide with the Queens 80th Birthday celebrations. The Royal Meeting will run from Tuesday 20th to Saturday 24th June with Ladies Day on the 22nd June. The official opening will take place on the first day of the races.

With the welcome return to Ascot, the new state-of-the-art Grandstand, Racecourse Track and spectacular pageantry, over 300,000 visitors are expected to make the journey to Berkshire to be part of this internationally renowned sporting and social occasion.

LateRooms the discount hotels specialist, has already seen an increase in demand for Ascot hotels and are strongly advising visitors to arrange their accommodation well in advance to avoid major disappointment.

LateRooms suggest that if you are planning to attend the meeting and you have your own transport it may make sense to stay in a hotel further afield where hotels will still have availability and be cheaper. The LateRooms site provides detailed maps of Ascot and information such as the distances of hotels from the centre of Ascot.

‘An extensive selection of 60 hotels in Ascot including 4 and 5 star luxury hotels enables LateRooms to offer accommodation to suit most budgets, provided people book early’ said Head of Marketing Andrew Pumphrey.

Racegoers can enjoy a first class experience during Ascot with an overnight stay at the Stoke Place Hotel from only £145 per double room including breakfast. The hotel is within easy reach of Ascot, only 10.7 miles away.

For those wishing to be closer to all the action, the Grange Bracknell Hotel is only 5.8 miles away. They are offering a double room from £175 per room, per night.
