6 of us took a Caledonian Travel trip on the 30th Oct.Coach pick up was on time although the driver was a little grumpy.The first stop was Inverary ,a .lovely wee place,then onto the Regent hotel,Check in was quick and friendly.Our room which were all next to each other were basic and clean,nice fluffy white towels and complimentary toiletries.The dinner was pretty early at 6pm but it was really nice and the staff great.The tables had Christmas crackers ,hats,party poppers,trumpets ,all the things you would expect at a Christmas party night.After dinner we waited for the party to begin and we waited and we waited and waited.At 8.30pm a wee man started to play an accordian,"speed bonny boat"and the like is not my,(or anyone else on the tours) idea of party music.He did play on until 10.30pm telling us as he had enjoyed himself so much he had given us an extra 1/2hr.Then that was it ,the "Party Night"was over.Breakfast the next morning was excellent and we left about 10am, with a stop in Calander on the way home.It was great value for money but was def.not as advertised a"Christmas Party.We are booked again on a Caledonian Tour in January,we hope for better things then.
