Just got the Winter brochure from Leger and I notice that they are advertising the '4-star Taste of Europe' again. I have been on several Leger trips before but this was by far the worst experience and I will never trust them again. The main problem was the Hotel. The Holiday Inn at Hasselt is the worst I have stayed at in this group. It is situated opposite a very loud night club in this dreary little town. The staff have very little interest in serving customers and would rather play with their computer system than serve dinner at what must be the slowest dining room in Belgium. When we arrived at the hotel it was found that their were insufficient rooms for our party, and several customers had to be placed elsewhere. We were not allowed into the dining room on one night as we had not booked, even though we could see that it was only half full.
As far as the tour is concerned, the highlight was to have been a trip to Monschau, but when we got near, the coach driver would not drive to the town because of snow on the ground. The brochure showed a picture of Xmas markets at Valkenburg, but when we got there we found these had finished on Xmas Eve. To cap it all the driver got lost on the way back and it took two hours to do the half-hour journey. The coach then broke down the following day.
All in all, a poor holiday and one I do not wish to repeat.
