War Horse Theatre Break with Copthorne Tara, Oct 2012

Excellent experience. I organised this theatre break for my parents who were both celebrating their 70th birthday. They said the theatre, show, seats and hotel could not have been better. They rated everything as excellent and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. A bonus was the free dinner they also got which again they rated as excellent. My only minor complaint was that I booked this so everything was in my name although I wasn't using the experience. I did not see any point in the online booking system when I should have given names of the guests. Consequently all details came through with my name as guest. As such I needed to get these all changed to ensure that the tickets were in my parents names. This was done speedily and efficiently by the online customer services.

War Horse Theatre Break with Waldorf Hilton Hotel, Dec 2011

The website was easy to follow and understand,The theatre seats were comfortable and the viewing was very good.We found the hotel was excellent,the bedroom was immaculate and spotlessly clean.The hotel staff were very friendly and courteous.I do wish though,that a hotel of this quality should have a dress code,wether it's breakfast,luncheon afternoon tea and dinner.There were some guests wearing t-shirts,scruffy jeans and dirty trainers,l'm not a fuddy duddy l just think that standards in dress sense have declined somewhat.Apart from my little moan,my wife and l thoroughly enjoyed our selves

The hotel was of a very good quality and handy for Gloucester Road tube station. Minutes away from the West End. We had a god view at the Theatre. The only problem the seats very cramped. Service at both the hotel and Theatre was excellent

War Horse Theatre Break with Waldorf Hilton Hotel, Jun 2011

Fabulous, Hotel lovely, show - jaw dropping and I booked at Sarastro's for pre show dinner which couldn't be faulted, I wasn't sure if my husband would appreciate my taste! but he loved it. All 3 were within a 5 minute walk of the hotel and Covent Garden just along the road. Thank you so much.
