The trip to Delft was so disappointing. Not enough time to see this town. The walk from the coach park took such a chunk of our visiting time. Although the coach was not allowed ( seemingly only if you held a German international driving plate ). Both my wife and I were very greatly disappointed with the hotel room. No air conditioning. British station on TV not accessible. A bathroom that did not accommodate the size of an adult. Neither of us are grossly overweight but found using the bathroom extremely depressing inconvenient and bordering on claustrophobic. The toppers on our beds kept moving. To get into and out of one of our beds it was necessary to shuffle sideways. Noise not only of local building works but also in the hotel definitely interrupted my wife's sleep. Insufficient storage space. 5 coat hangers and only open shelving - no drawers. For one night ok but not for 4 nights for two people. No safe in our room as we had believed - only one in reception. Julie,our tour guide was excellent.

Well organised, rooms at the Ibis a little snug, Keukenhoff exceptional, could have done with a longer visit.

The Eurostar was a new experience for us - a very smooth journey. The trips were well organised & our tour guide very helpful. The highlights were the Keukenhof Gardens & the Floralia Spring Show.

A well organised short holiday. The only problem was the dinner on the first night (which was included in the cost of the holiday). There was quite a long walk to the restaurant and the service was very slow..
