My friends and I have just returned from this four day break with National Holidays but were very disappointed with the trip to see the Midsomer villages, it was a long and tiring day driving to villages that were more like small towns and nothing like the pretty villages we were expecting. The first one we came to was impossible to get to the sights we were supposed to see because the roads were too narrow for the coach to turn into, so we missed out on that.The next one, Thame, was quite nice but we were told that they only thought the town hall and chippy might have been used in the programme,The next one, Ammersham was awful.It had a main street with charity shops, .

Just had a five day holiday with National holidays which included a day trip to Bruges in Belgium. If you have booked a similar holiday or are thinking of doing so then if your offered an alternative destination like Calais or Ostende then Don't go to Bruges. Don't get me wrong, Bruges is well worth a visit but having to travel at least 7 hours on bus and ferry for a two hour visit is really not doing justice to Bruges. We spent our two hours trying to take as much in as we could but the twenty minute walk from the drop of point to the town and the same back took another 40 minutes off our visiting times, so it really was just another day travelling as far as we were ...

Yesterday my son and I returned from Diano Marina , the drivers Richard and Steve made the trip, always helpful and lots of fun. We stayed at the Royal Esplanade and I am sorry that place is awful, it was more like a youth hostel. The owners don't treat the guests well. I did not expect luxury but that is a 2star at best. Having to tick your choice every night for the following day was like been in hospital, the food was average to poor. The breakfast ,we gave up and went to the bakery, it was awful. the coffee was already stewed at the start. It was clean but in need of repair ,the pool was often filthy, if the young chap on the pool ... Read the complete review

Just done 9 days all inclusive in Diano Marina staying at Royal Esplanade Hotel.The Hotel was acceptable with decent choice of food including English for those who prefer it , personally we go abroad to eat local food . The hotel had reasonable rooms kept clean and tidy however the bath and bathroom was rather small , taking into account what we paid we have no complaints.We had several trips included including Monaco [ Good for me as an F1 fan] also Santa Margherite and Portofino and Imperia. Beautiful places made better by very good weather also not too busy at this time.We love Italy and this is our second visit with National , last year to Tuscany. Finally we would like to thank [Bossy] Brian and John for the excellent driving and service throughout the Holiday. We shall no doubt use National again. Great value .

Starting with the positive... the staff were really friendly and worked very hard under difficult circumstances. The food was quite good with plenty of choice. Bedding and towels were clean and the cleanliness of the rooms was good considering the state of the decor. The owners of this hotel should be ashamed of themselves - the entire place needs full refurbishment...the bathrooms are appalling with delapidated imitation marble plastic walls and only a shower tray with a grotty curtain and sliding door that wasn't even fixed at the bottom! Room was either too cold or too hot and the radiator was uncontrollable. We could hear people in the room above performing their ... Read the complete review
