“A wonderful time with an excellent Tour Guide, good hotel and interesting trips.
South Devon & The Dawlish Coast
Mr C Lee
“Well organised,great value hotel.
A Castle On The Shores Of Loch Fyne
Anonymous
“Very little free time, both to experience the hotel and surroundings and also the local harbour. It is Scotland, but there was a lot of travel to get anywhere. The trip to the distillery was a long way for an hour’s experience, and not really of much interest to the ladies perhaps.
Norwich & The Norfolk Broads
Mr A Pilbeam
“We were well satisfied with the holiday, the only snags were that we could have used more time at Sandringham and some people found the stairs at the hotel a problem
Steam Trains & Tulips of Holland
Mr L Willitt
“Overall the holiday was a very good and enjoyable one.Any bad experiences which occurred,such as a train door not opening and 5 members of our party unable to get off until the next station,were not the fault of G.R.J.staff.Hotel accommodation very comfortable and staff very friendly at all times.Would recommend to friends.
The Harrogate Flower Show

“Well organised. Good company.
Vintage Railways of the Isle of Man
Mrs M James
“Enjoyed the whole holiday especially the steam train and the trip to the top of the hill although the electric railway was a bit noisy and uncomfortable .The hotel was good with very good food. The coach driver was one of the best ever, a mine of information and an expert in motor bike racing. I wish I could have seen a Manx cat but I didn’t have enough time.
