Westway Travel Branches in Wickford, Upminster and Thorpe Bay Essex

Review websites are now an integral part of the travel industry and booking process but recent concerns about them being manipulated by service providers are a worry. By posting your comments about venues, properties and Westway Travel I can assure you of two things.

1) The right people will see them. By this I mean either you, Westway clients or other travellers will read reviews from like minded local people.
2) I will personally be following all comments and will add my thoughts to all postings.

Remember we are independent of all Tour Operators and hotels and have no bias towards any product range. It is my staffs’ job to make sure you experience the best holiday possible.

I thank you in advance for taking the time to complete the guest book.

Hi Cyan,
Once again the trip was a lovely early break. Great warm weather. Good flights (on time this year)
The hotel was just as good as last years which was the Platjador (being sister hotels one would hope so). Phil preferred last years as it was right on the prom whereas the Galleon was in town. We had a very large balcony right at roof top level - Room 401 - worth remembering. The pool was quiet but had a lot of blossoming trees around it (such a small complaint) which fell on the sun beds etc.
I once again went paddle boarding - Sitges SUP, which was lovely and a day trip to see inside the Sagrada Famillia. The hotel is only about 4 minutes walk from the bus stop for Barcelona/Airport buses.
Thanks again for all your help.
Take care and until the next time.
Kind regards
Tina & Phil.

Ian Prior reply: congratulations on getting into the Sagrada Famillia. I left it to late to book but new that as soon as I saw it the building was going to be magnificent. I am also pleased holiday was a success and that Cyan did a good job

Hello Cyan,
We had a most enjoyable holiday and especially the staff at hotel Kette were very friendly and helpful for us both. The water taxi worked well and on time.

The only thing that I would mention for any one else arriving at Marco Polo airport which is being extended as you are probably aware. When given instructions to find the water taxi was first to walk through the car park and as it was raining we missed the turning for the water taxi! We then walked back and retraced our steps to find the signs and found the covered walk way our mistake and very easy on the way back!

best wishes Liz

Ian Prior reply: Comments of your type are of great interest and use to the team at Westway Travel. Transfers at Marco Polo are always difficult to organise because the real private transfers cost so much money but perhaps on arrival it may be a cost worth considering. You observations have reignited the debate and I will have a look at how we can improve the advice we give our clients going to Venice

All good thank you Tina, hotel was good and in a great position, transfer took us to the Radisson Blu in Nice instead of Cannes but all your paper work was in order and it only took us 10mins out of our way – all good thanks for another successful trip.



Ian Prior reply: Thanks for taking the time to visit our Guestbook

After seeing the photograph of your Grand Prix seats I can see why you had such a great trip. I know Tina is not a petrol head but it does help when you have great Tour operator support by companies like Kirker

Thanks again for continuing to let Westway Travel look after your Holiday plans

Hi Cyan

Just to let you know we had an amazing time! I would definitely recommend the hotel, sitting on the terrace with views of Lokrum Island and Dubrovnik old Town while eating breakfast was incredible. We loved Croatia and went on a number of coach trips, ancient Montenegro, Mostar and 'Into the Countryside' we filled everyday with something special whether it was a boat trip or tuk tuk ride up the mountains.
It really was a memorable holiday.
Thank you
Margaret Davis

Ian Prior reply: Great news about your Croatia trip. My last visit was when it was Yugoslavia but since then I know that so much has changed especially in relation to quality. I will make sure Cyan gets a pat on the back for her service levels and I thank you for allowing Westway Travel to look after your holiday plans

Hi Cyan
The Las Vegas trip was very good. All arrangements worked well and 5 days was just about right for this type of holiday.
Helicopter Trip to the Grand Canyon & Hoover Dam was a real highlight. We had the front seats and the views were amazing. Flying over the strip at night, on the return trip was magical. (Maverick Helicopters)
Needless to say, The Bellagio Hotel is outstanding. We must have visited 10 hotels on our walks but even the Wynn Hotel, good as it is, did not match the Bellagio. The Fountain view from our room was spectacular.
Temperatures ranged from 80 degs when we arrived and built up to 107 when we left. Challenging but enjoyable.
The weekend that we stayed in Las Vegas is MEMORIAL WEEKEND. Very busy with the high rollers coming in from all corners of the USA. Never seen money spent like it. They gamble 24/7 and I am not kidding.
Thanks for everything you did to make the holiday so successful. Well done.

Ian Prior reply: Thanks for taking the time to post on our Guestbook. Getting client feedback is of upmost importance to us not just to raise our standards but to reassure other clients that the holiday we promote are good ones. Mind you Las Vegas is an easy sell it does what it says on the tin. High quality fun

we had a wonderful week at the Sami Beach hotel where the proprietors and staff were so friendly and welcoming.The rooms were kept spotless the whole week and the towels were changed every day.The continental style breakfast had enough choice for everyone and the waitress kept your cup replenished the whole time with coffee and tea. There was a lovely relaxing feeling to the place and because the majority of the guests there were over 50 years of age, it was quiet and peaceful around the pool area where you could order drinks at the bar and it was brought over to your lounger.The hotel is within easy walking distance into Sami and it's restaurants and there was a lovely little bakery about 5 minutes walk away (up hill) where you could get rolls, cakes, pastries, teas, coffee or ice-creams. Obviously we had beautiful weather but couldn't get it in the suit-case to bring back.

Ian Prior reply: My first trip to Cephalonia was to Sami and I can see why you had such a nice Holiday. I also like the fact your hotel was directly on the sea front which adds to the enjoyment of any holiday

Once again a very enjoyable holiday booked through Westway travel. All going to plan without a hitch.
We will book again through Westway.
Flying from Southend could not be recommended highly enough
Our future holidays will be going from there.

Ian Prior reply: Porto Pollensa is always a winner yet what excites me more is the joy that travelling thru Southend has given you. Westway Travel are booking more people from this airport than ever so you will be pleased to see it is here to stay

Thanks for taking timeout of your busy day to sign our guest book

Our city break to Vienna was a great success, and the travel arrangements were impeccable.

We decided to have 5 nights and would strongly recommend that no fewer than 4 nights is booked for this city. There is so much to see, and by booking a 3 day hop on-hop off bus tour we managed to see most of the significant places of interest. We also attended a concert, toured the State Opera house, and walked the inner city on the two days we had left.

For culture, sight seeing and sheer indulgence we found that Vienna met all our expectations.

Westway travel gave us good advice and wonderful service. Thank you, Maxine.


Ian Prior reply: James I have spoken to Maxine and we are both pleased you have had a terrific time in Vienna. Your comments about giving yourself enough time to enjoy the city is very true. To really understand the culture you need to immerse yourself in all that the area has to offer and I am glad Vienna did that for you. let us know if we can help again in the future

This was a really memorable city break. The arrangements made by Tina and Kirker were very smooth. A nice car met us at Ciampino airport and took us to the hotel which was very welcoming and comfortable (a bottle of Prosecco and chocolates was awaiting us in our room - very nice!)

Rome is an amazing place - so much to see. But staying right in the centre of the city as we were, most of the must-see places were within easy walking distance, and we packed more into our five days than we expected.

Rome is very crowded, no question about that, but we found people to be very friendly and polite, and it was not a problem. You are never going to have the Sistine Chapel or the Colosseum to yourself, but we found it all very impressive all the same.

Thanks to Westway Travel and to Kirker - a really good holiday.

Ian Prior reply: Great to hear you had a memorable trip to Rome. Mind you in all honesty not a lot could go wrong. Tina is a good girl in my office, Kirker are a top quality tour operation and Rome as you say is an amazing place. I had my 25th wedding anniversary in the city and cannot wait to go back.

If it is not to be Rome then I hope you keep Westway Travel and Kirker as a winning combination
