I telephoned Hotel Direct

I telephoned Hotel Direct and spoke to a very helpful and friendly member of staff who advised me of the best deal and booked my train and hotel as a package for me, very pleased.

Brilliant

With respect, I`ve been going with "superbreak " for the last 20 plus years, because they were great. Obviously, since their demise!, I was left with " where do we go now?". Through default, I stumbled across "hotel direct ". I booked a trip away on the Friday, received the tickets the next day and left on the Sunday. Train, hotel, the whole experience, brilliant. Well done guys.

Easy site to use

Easy site to use ,good choice of shows and hotels.

Top notch

Came about Hotel Direct by chance, so glad we did. We booked a Hotel/Rail package for 4 nights in London and paid on line. Everything was totally streamlined from start to finish and we had a fantastic journey and hotel stay. Will not hesitate to rely on Hotel Direct to arrange our vacation in future and they will be our first port of call.
