The attention to detail at the hotel wasn’t up to your usual standard.

The holiday was well planned except that on the outward journey there was a delay, which was caused by track works on the line which resulted in our train journey terminating at Rosenburg, We had to wait an hour for the coach to pick us up. Considering that you specialise in rail journeys, and that these rail works were planned as it was a bank holiday, then you should have been aware of this, also the courier informed you of the delay at the start of the train journey, so there should have been ample time for the coach to arrive at the same time as the train. The result was that we had an extra 2 hours of travel. The breakfast at the hotel was only adequet. For an english breakfast there was not much choice - just small sausages (undercooked) bacon and scrambled eggs, if you wanted continental then there was more choice. The evening meal on the last day was very good. Our courier Wendy did her job very well. The excursions were well planned and enjoyable. Overall my party did enjoy the holiday.
