We appreciate that a large percentage of our runners have
travelled a considerably long way to race at Ayr, therefore we aim
to make your stay as comfortable as possible. In order for us to
achieve this, please read the below prior to arrival:
- On arrival please use the check-in area in Courtyard Two of the
Western House Hotel.
- We have a strict 2-per-room, same-sex policy due to limited
availability both in our 4* Western House Hotel and in local

from the same racing yard and/or of similar career status.
Valuables may be stored in safes provided in each room.
- On the evening before racing a complimentary meal is available
between 7pm and 9pm in the Western House Hotel. After this time a
'packed lunch' is offered for late arrivals.
