We had a lovely time at the Tamarind Hotel in Barbados as it enabled us to have plenty of R&R, which we needed. 

The hotel itself was fine but we felt it needed a little tlc in places. Our understanding from talking to people there is that the Tamarind, plus others owned by Elegant Hotels was in the process of being taken over by Marriott group so a refurbishment may take place. 

All the staff at the hotel were very friendl...

​Hi Shelley,

I just wanted to thank you for organising our recent trip to Iceland. My wife and her sister had a wonderful 40th birthday.

The Centrum Hotel was lovely and very well located near to shops and restaurants. The tours were amazing and Icelandic Air were a great airline to fly with. 

Thank you very much for all your help.

Hello Shelley,

Just a quick line to say a big THANK YOU.

Our short break to Tenerife in January with Jet2 at the Adrian Jardines De Nivaria (a great upgrade thanks to you) was wonderful.

Hope to call in to the shop soon.

Kind regards,

Hi Sharron,

We’ve just returned back from a fantastic holiday in India. Everything went extremely smoothly and we really enjoyed ourselves. It was a thoroughly well-organised, stress-free trip of a lifetime.

So thanks to you and Nikhil and to everybody, including the staff, drivers and guides at Silent Leopard.

Also a special thanks for managing to arrange a birthday surprise for me at every hotel we visited!

We’ll pop in while we...

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...
