The new Hampton by Hilton Hamilton Park has opened its doors. The brand new 118-room hotel is located within Hamilton Park Racecourse, a five-star VisitScotland attraction which is a significant part of Scotland’s racing heritage. The property owned by Hamilton Park Racecourse will be the first hotel to adjoin the racecourse in its 90-year history and is the latest Hampton by Hilton in Interstate Hotels & Resorts’ growing portfolio.
With contemporary, comfortable and functional rooms offering panoramic views of Hamilton Park Racecourse, guests can watch over the excitement on the racetrack below in comfort and style. The hotel, situated just 10 miles from Glasgow city centre, also provides easy access to a range of shopping, entertainment and historical attractions in both cities. Travellers seeking a relaxing day can head to the nearby Strathclyde and Chatelherault Country Parks, while thrill-seekers can visit M&D’s Theme Park, just a few miles away.
Guests can enjoy Hampton’s signature hot breakfast, with complimentary tea and coffee, to gear up for the races. The property’s 24-hour bar and restaurant offers open views of the racecourse where groups can enjoy a cocktail or light meal without missing the action.
The hotel includes 57 “flex rooms” which are suitable for either three adults, or two adults with children. Guests can make use of the on-site 24-hour fitness centre, open daily from 6am until 10pm, and enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi and 50-inch flat-screen HDTVs in every room. With complimentary parking and 18 fully-equipped function rooms within the racecourse, the hotel is also an excellent option for business travellers.
Nicholas Northam, Executive Vice President – International said: “We’re really pleased to welcome the Hampton by Hilton Hamilton Park Racecourse to our growing portfolio.
“The Hampton by Hilton Hamilton Park has a fantastic location along with a stunning setting and is set to further enhance the racecourse’s position as a great place for both business and leisure travellers.”
Vivien Currie, Chief Executive at Hamilton Park Racecourse, said: “We are delighted to be delivering this landmark project at Hamilton Park Racecourse and are certain it will deliver substantial benefits to the wider economy as well as enhance the Racecourse’s reputation as a world-class sporting and hospitality attraction.”
“The project has been driven by both public demand, largely from our local customer base, not only for our 18 race days but for weddings and other events, and from our racing personnel.”
