Hi Sophie!

The  honeymoon was amazing - thank you! Victoria Beachcomber Resort was lovely and the beach was gorgeous. The sea was so clear. We did a trip to  the Chamarel waterfall and hired a car. It went far too quickly! 

Thank you so much for all of your help - booking the honeymoon to Mauritius was easily the most enjoyable part of the wedding planning.

The wedding ended up involving so many decisions and so much re...

Hello Shelley,

What a beautiful place Fuerteventura is!

We had a lovely holiday  - the SBH Crystal Beach Hotel in Costa Calma was a brilliant choice of hotel.

Everywhere is so clean and tidy - even the bus drivers are friendly.

Jet 2 as always were very efficient and made the transfers so easy - they even sent a private transfer us to collect us for our return journey. We had a coach all to ourselves!

Thank you...

Dear Shelley,

Thank you so much for the Ikos Dassia recommendation - we absolutely loved it! And what a way to celebrate a 4th and 40th birthday!

The other half loved it so much we agreed we’d think about returning, or trying another Ikos, before the school summer holidays next year.

Thanks again.

We had such a fabulous time and cannot wait to book again or somewhere similar.

Kind regards,

When I first came in I saw Carly and explained where I wanted to go (Barcelona), how much my ceiling was (pricewise) and that I intended travelling alone.

Her response was both fast and professional. In addition, she also had a detailed knowledge of this region.

We looked at several options for hotels discussing price, position, etc.

She even arranged a pre booked ticket for my visit to Sagrada Familia.

We discussed airports and c...

Hi Sharron, 

We just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time in Copenhagen last weekend. The Best Western Hotel Hebron was really lovely and only a few minutes from the main station so a great location, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. We also bought 72 Hour Copenhagen Cards at the airport that gave us free travel around the city and free entrance to all the main attractions - castles, museums and cana...

Hi Sophie,

I just wanted to say thank you. 

The Rome holiday you arranged for myself and my friend Jean was amazing. All the excursions you arranged for us were great, as well as the Daniel’s Hotel where we stayed.

I will certainly not have any hesitation booking a holiday with you again.

Thank you again.

​After booking, and losing a holiday with Thomas Cook we didn't really know what to do next. Abbotts were recommended to us by friends.

I must say what a fantastic experience it was booking a holiday at short notice with them. To say they were understanding, helpful and fantastic would be an understatement.

The ladies in store got us a holiday to the same resort in Tenerife at not much of the extra cost of the original Thomas Co...

We had a lovely break in Majorca. The Senses Hotel was great. Clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was really yummy.

We loved Santa Ponsa and for future reference that weekend we were there was a festival. It’s held there every year and it really made our weekend. A fabulous night market, parades, fireworks and music. It was great fun. It would have been a very quiet resort otherwise.  

A fabulou...

As always the Royal Mirage in Dubai was amazing and they upgraded us to a suite for my 50th.

Hospitality and food were great as always; staff are also exceptional.

Part of the hotel was closed due to renovation so my beloved Nina’s restaurant wasn’t open. However it meant we took the boat over to The Palm to the 101 restaurant which was very good.

As a side note, we also paid for upstairs seats on the flight on the way out - very...

Our trip to the USA was fantastic! Every city we visited was a highlight for different reasons. The kids loved Universal Studios in LA; my wife loved seeing the Hollywood sign and all the glamour; San Francisco was my favourite.

On the hotels:

  • Westin in San Fran was perfect

  • Carmel Mission Inn wasn’t that great, bit old and tired

  • Hilton in Pismo Beach was really nice

  • Magic Castle was excellent, they couldn...

We're just back from Canada, where we had a great time albeit the weather was a bit mixed!

We particularly liked Vancouver Island, Whistler and Jasper.

The trips which were arranged were really good, especially swimming with seals and the two tours from Banff - the Icefields and the Grizzly Bear sanctuary, where the scenery from the top of the gondola was stunning. Both long, very full days but well worth it.  

We saw lots o...

I just wanted to say a big thank you to Carly for organising all the travel and hotels on our holiday. The whole experience was a massive success; the ferry trip was great and we actually saw a whale right next to the ferry in the Bay of Biscay.

For future reference, if anyone asks you what the Spanish railway is like, I can’t fault them at all. Every train left and arrived on time, they were clean and our seat reservation...

My family and I have been assisted by Shelley at Abbotts Travel for over 12 years (maybe more)!

We’ve always received an excellent service that has got us to where we wanted to go and at a competitive  price.

Very professional, patient and efficient customer care!

Thanks, Julian. I have to say Chervo Golf is awesome. You could not have picked a better resort.

It's stunningly beautiful and a first class venue, with easy access to Sirmione, which is stunning.

The golf courses are immaculate and the hotel is so nice.

3 x 9 holes and another executive par 3 9 hole.

A superb place to hide away and have a chill out.

I just wanted to say a big thank you. The Wickaninnish Inn in Tofino has exceeded our expectations.
Thank you so much for arranging everything.
It’s a fantastic place and we definitely want to come back.
