    Ladies grab your fascinator and throw on your best dress! Gents, don your finest suit and tie! We’re off to the races!

    Dating back to 1860, Royal Randwick Racecourse is Sydney’s longest standing racing venue and hosts some of Australia’s premier thoroughbred races. An integral part of Sydney’s social scene, a display of glitz and glamour, there really is nothing like a day at the races.

    Let’s face it, dressing up and feeling like a king or queen for the day is all part of the fun. So why not book a hotel where you can feel like royalty too? St Marks Randwick is a boutique guesthouse that truly epitomises the decadence and sophistication of days gone by. What’s more, it’s just down the road from Royal Randwick Racecourse, making it the ideal place to rest your weary head after a long day punting on the horses.
