Asimina Suites Pahos

5.0 rating

Other than having to suffer the TUI flight experiences there and back (honestly a very uncomfortable and one star experience) the hotel, venue, food and drink, and not to forget the staff, were the best we have experienced in all our travels. For a 4 hour plus flight it is a pity there is no alternative to cattle class.

Canada Banff Springs

5.0 rating

This hotel had all the wow factors. Once in a lifetime hotel. Probably would never have stayed in a Fairmont but if you’re having a holiday of a lifetime, it’s the one.

Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa

4.0 rating

Just returned from Antigua having had a fabulous time there. I just wanted to thank Geoff and his team for the recommendation, arrangements and documentation, which arrived on time before departure.
The place is excellent with several restaurants, pools and sports facilities (water & inland) available. The room was maintained to a high standard with twice daily housekeeping visits. The drinks fridge and bar were also replenished daily and the drinks were of the premium type.
The staff were very welcoming, polite and accommodated our requests whenever possible. The food was excellently prepared and served to the correct temperature. Several restaurants meant that you could eat in a different one every day, only having to pre-book in two of them, to ensure you ate at your preferred time. The size of two of the restaurants were small which occasionally meant you had to wait to be seated but this was a minor inconvenience.
The resort was well maintained and the layout meant that you only had a short walk to the beach in any direction. The sandy beach was beautifully clean and the water sports facilities easy to access on the beach. The combination of sun, sea and sand together with the setting and facilities available means that this location is ideal for couples who want to get away for either a relaxing vacation or if you want an activity based holiday.
You can in effect lose yourself in your surroundings, yet you are only a stones throw away from others if you want a more social environment, as activities are scheduled throughout the day.
Overall, a fantastic holiday.

Penang/tune Hotel Then Sydney

5.0 rating

Grateful thanks to Kerry for taking endless trouble arranging my flights! I have returned from visiting Sydney, Australia, to attend my Grandson’s Graduation Ceremony at University of Technology Sydney (UTS), (and staying with my Son), I can say that the travel arrangements made by Kerry worked out very well, no delays or lateness. I made a side trip to Penang on the way out, two nights in a hotel (Tune Hotel, Georgetown, Penang). The hotel was ok, bed only, so I had to search for meals outside in the 32 degrees C heat.
Owing to not being able to check in online, due to a fault on Malaysian Airlines website, I had to check in at Heathrow, and got a seat in row 43 (very noisy from the jets!), so my lesson has been learnt – to check in on line at the earliest moment possible, and select a seat near the front ahead of the engines.
I would highly recommend Global Independent Travel in Clevedon and will use them for my next trip abroad.

Nile Cruise, Steinberger Legacy

5.0 rating

We can thoroughly recommend this trip along the Nile from Luxor to Aswan. The Steinberger Legacy was luxurious with fabulous food and attentive staff who anticipated our every need without being overbearing.
The evening entertainment added an amusing element to the experience. We were particularly impressed by the whirling dervish who amazed us all with his frenetic dancing.
The trips were all well organised with a very knowledgeable guide who was extremely helpful as well as easygoing and witty.
Charlotte provided a friendly and efficient service and all aspects of the organisation from start to finish were exemplary.
