All the three days of excursions were well organised. The information on each days itinerary provided by Lin Martin was excellent. Each day we left the hotel on time and arrived at our destination with time to spare. This enabled us to get refreshments and use the toilets before boarding the train. The hotel was of a good standard with a good buffet choice for breakfast and a nice selection of courses for the evening meal. The quiz on the last evening organised by Lin was very entertaining. The only annoyance of the holiday was when someone (not on a Great Rail Group) set off the fire alarm at 2.30am causing everyone to evacuate the hotel. It was the source of a lot of conversation the following morning. Overall a very good holiday

Beautiful part of the country. Llandrindod Wells a lovely little spa town. Excellent tour manager and hotel. Quality coach every day with the same very good driver. However, not five star in my opinion because there was far too long on the coach on the first day (Talyllyn Railway) and far too early a start on the last day (Elan Valley & Vale of Rheidol), neither of which was apparent when originally booking.

Hotel. Not four star standard. More like three star. Powys castle was dark gloomy and boring inside. Gardens wonderful. Trains five star, but not enough time on trains for a train holiday.

Lots of lovely scenery & lots of lovely NG railways. A lovely hotel, too. Maybe not enough walking on a couple of days, though.

Excellent tour guide, hotel good (especially food) but too much coach travelling, miles and miles of it and we were on a train holiday!

This is the best of all the rail holidays i have been on, and except for an impatient camper van driver at rheader on the way back the holiday was perfect.
