To celebrate the opening of its new hotel, Marriott offers special Lingfield Park Racecourse Package


Just in time for Lingfield Park’s summer race season, the 116-room Lingfield Park Marriott Hotel & Country Club has opened in Surrey. A grand opening celebration is planned for June 21 with special guest Dame Judi Dench.



Situated on more than 450 acres of rolling Surrey countryside between London and Brighton and in close proximity to London Gatwick Airport, Lingfield Park Racecourse is one of the U.K.'s oldest, busiest and most upscale horse racing venues. The Lingfield Park Marriott Hotel & Country Club offers incredible views across the racecourse and surrounding countryside.


To celebrate the opening, the Lingfield Park Marriott Hotel & Country Club is offering a special Escape! Race Day Package starting from £155 now through March 2011 with rate code SPE that includes:

  • Deluxe accommodation
  • Lingfield Park Race Course entry badge
  • Dinner in Cyprium Bar and Grill
  • Breakfast


Steeped in history, Lingfield Park was first opened in 1890 by the Prince of Wales who later became King Edward VII. Lingfield Park was the first of only four racecourses in the United Kingdom to have an all-weather track.


"As we move towards our goal of doubling our portfolio in Europe by 2015, we are thrilled to open this unique hotel here at Lingfield Park," said Amy McPherson, Marriott International's president and managing director for Europe. "It is quite fitting that we welcome the Lingfield Park Marriott Hotel & Country Club into the Marriott Hotels & Resorts family of hotels, where our mission is to help high achieving travelers finish in first place, each and every time."


Paul Shrimpton, managing director of Lingfield Park said, "The new Marriott Hotel and Country Club has given Lingfield Park a huge boost in terms of profile. The construction of the hotel and redevelopment of the facilities around the racecourse has taken Lingfield Park to a new level with its state-of-the art facilities and enormous versatility for guests."

Lingfield Park's 18 hole, tree-lined golf course has been newly landscaped and now boasts a new golf teaching academy and pro shop. The new Breathe Spa features amenities for health and relaxation including a sparkling indoor swimming pool, steam room, sauna and fitness center.


All 116 beautifully designed guestrooms feature fine Egyptian cotton bedding, flat screen televisions, and miniature refrigerators. Luxurious corner rooms give guests a bird's eye view overlooking the race course. Hotel guests also receive complimentary use of leisure facilities in Breathe Spa, including the indoor swimming pool and fitness center.

Foodies will enjoy the hotel's new Cyprium Bar & Grill which boasts a chef's table where guests can watch the chefs prepare their dishes for a unique dining experience.

Marriott International's Hotel & Country Club Collection in the U.K. currently consists of 10 properties, including the prestigious the St. Pierre Marriott Hotel & Country Club, the Dalmahoy Marriott Hotel & Country Club and the Hanbury Manor Marriott Hotel & Country Club.


The Lingfield Park Marriott Hotel & Country Club participates in the award winning Marriott Rewards frequent travel program that allows members to earn hotel points or airline miles for every dollar spent during each stay. For more information or reservations go to
