Romantic Britain and Ireland (2018, 18 Days)
- Rather Poor
- DDebbieWritten on July 3, 20173.0 - AverageThis was our 3rd Insight tour. Romantic Britain & Ireland. We had an excellent driver in Mike who always went above and beyond making all guests feel welcome. We found him to be an excellent driver at all times and any guest that have him as their driver will be very impressed by him. We had booked 2 rooms for our 3 family members & were very disappointed after requesting interconnecting rooms where possible (fully understanding that some hotels don't offer this) That on arrival at some of the hotels that we were actually placed on different floors or on one occasion 18 rooms & 3 long corridors separated us. We had asked our tour director to request we be located as close as possible so this surprised us when on arrival we would have to re negotiate rooms our selves. With the reception staff advising that they had no idea that even though there were 2 rooms booked in the same surname that we might have been together??? Anyway I have to say we really enjoyed seeing beautiful Ireland, it was amazing & would encourage people to do a similar tour. I am not sure if we will ever travel Insight again due to the standard of hotels in particular the final two nights while we did manage rooms side by side whilst not interconnecting at least we were close. Apparently Both rooms had unsafe balconies so the large sliding doors out to the lovely view & fresh air of Torquay could not be enjoyed by our family in either room as they had to be permanently bolted shut except for 4 cm & even the windows were deemed unsafe & screwed shut . The days were hot & sunny & with windows & doors bolted shut it made our stay very uncomfortable to say the least. We were offered at a late hour to transfer to another hotel however rooms were on separate floors & as we had an early start each day we would need to be back at the tour hotel for breakfast & to join the tour in time for the early start. We decided to stay in our rooms. It was an awful couple of nights sealed in our room at this lovely seaside location we were supplied a couple of fans as the rooms have no air conditioning as the rooms would have been designed to enjoy the sea breezes you would get if you could open your doors & windows that were originally meant to open but now deemed unsafe to do so . Our other tour friends told us they felt sorry for us in this situation & embarrassed as they had been sitting out on their lovely balconies enjoying them as you would hope they would be. We definitely would not have wished our rooms on any one else & were glad for them they got decent rooms. Was very disappointing indeed.Show detailed ratings
