We have just returned from the Ben Doran Hotel on Sunday the 2nd June after a 6 day
break and was really looking forward to it as the Highland Heritage coaches were reported
as being spacious.We were to meet the coach in Blackpool and whilst waiting kept a look out for the Highland Heritage coach.What arrive was a totally different coach which was to take us to Gretna Green where we would then meet our proper coach. On the journey we felt really uncomfortable as there was seats for 57 passengers and my knees were pressed hard against
the seat in front.Had we known about the feeder coach from Blackpool and return we wouldnt have booked the trip as there was no mention of this to us.
The excursions were fine except we were getting back quite late and having to rush to prepare for Dinner at 7pm. We like our dancing,however,on one night the artists were informed
by the management to have a cabaret night and the music was to be stopped if anyone danced
so walked out in disgust. The Hotel itself was really nice as were the staff, as for the driver of the coach he was really knowlegeable and kept us all amused on all the trips out. Hopefully they will change back to picking the customers up in the Highland Heritage caoches. Monty.More
