What are customers saying about Hotel Direct?

An excellent service

An excellent service, would definitely use again.

The whole trip lived up to and beyond

The whole trip lived up to and beyond our expectations. Great value.

Rail, Hotel and Theatre break

Booked Hotel Direct for Rail, Hotel and Theatre break. Easy to book. Bristol to Paddington, Holiday Inn Express Stratford (good hotel near ABBA Arena) and ABBA Voyage (great seats). All went to plan. All information and tickets emailed promptly. No problems whatsoever. When pricing each element of break it would have cost more than the package. Would recommend.

Thank you for a wonderful experience

Everything was so well organised and ran smoothly, the hotel was an easy commute from the train station, the show venue was close enough to the hotel, and all at a reasonable cost.

We believe it's very important that you know exactly which seat you're booking. That's why we created seating plans for every West End theatre, so you can select the exact seats that you want for your chosen show. Every seat is graded so that you have a good idea of the quality of the stage view.
