I enjoyed a wonderful Turkey n Tinsel midweek break at the Rainbow Hotel, and must add my comments. After a very pleasant journey down to Torquay, I entered the hotel and was thrilled by the decorations - it's like fairy land! Very tastefully decorated, and a lovely welcome! The girl on reception (Sonia?) was very helpful, and has a lovely smile. Well our break got better and better, the food is amazing. The Christmas dinner on Tuesday (complete with crackers, turkey, SIX different vegetables, and an array of deserts), was really enjoyable, and everyone in the attractive restaurant seemed to be having fun..
The Salvation Army Band came in and handed out carol books, and we enjoyed a singalong. This was followed by cash bingo, which my sister and I enjoyed, and then a Christmas Show. There was a bit of comedy, singing (what a great voice that young lad has) and dancing girls, finishing off with a medley of costumed Christmas songs. The little girl sang "somewhere over the Rainbow, and "2 front teeth" - I assume this was the daughter? It was lovely. And there was a wonderful atmosphere, we've met lovely people - one group are on their 4th turkey n tinsel break at the hotel! Must also say how wonderful the entertainment was on Wednesday. Some people paid extra and went o the theatre, and they really missed a wonderful evening at the Rainbow with a very talented man called Chris. one of the best cabaret acts I've seen.
I will definately return next year to turkey n tinsel, if not before and enjoy a spring break on the english riviera!
