Grand National 2018
2018 - Ibis Styles Crewe - 2 Days (AUD0115)
Since its very first race back in 1839, The Grand National has been billed as the pinnacle of ambition for owners, trainers, and jockeys worldwide. You’ll discover this too when you join us on our trip to The Grand National. Not only is it the most famous steeplechase in the world but it also provides one of the biggest tests for racehorse and rider. The riders and horses have to negotiate two circuits of The Grand National course, jumping 30 fences over four and a half miles. Why not try to predict the winner, place your bets and then feel the adrenalin rush as the horses wait to gallop to the finish line.
Every year on Friday the infamous 'Ladies Day' occurs, where visitors showcase their unique style and fashion. One lucky race-goer will win a host of prizes for being selected as 'the most stylish race-goer' at The Grand National meeting. There is fantastic racing to match the fantastic fashion on display including The John Smith's Melling Chase and The Topham Chase. There is also the John Smith's Handicap Hurdle amongst other smaller races. All eyes turn to Aintree for the greatest steeplechase in the horse-racing calendar for fans of all ages to enjoy.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.

This hotel is a modern tribute to the classic car and vintage steam heritage of Crewe. With leather seats and a walnut dashboard inspired front desk, the only thing missing from your journey into yesteryear is a chauffeur and ticket inspector.
