Pat Tunney says:Thanks Doug&staff for a lovely three day stay at the Canasta. Breakfast was excellent as was the service.It was nice to be greeted with tea or coffee every time you walked into the hotel,you don,t get that anywere else,Dan was a star*
Thanks again Pat@Brian Tunney.
Our Reply:Thanks Pat & Brian for taking time to give us a pat on back - I'll let everybody know. Yes...we're really pleased Dan's decided to come back - he needed a year out to spread his wings...but now he's back for the season at least.
Hope to see you again!
Doug, Dan and Mandy wouldn't have met Mandy....Note to regulars and friends...Swampys has had her eyes done!! She looks like she's gone 5 rounds with Frank Bruno...but I'm sure she'll look even more gorgeous soon. My forst words to her when she came back from Brussels..."Eye Eye...what you been up to!"

Becky says:Hi Doug and Swampy, sorry our comment is late but we would like to once again thank the Canasta team for the great holiday we had in May. Also the new year break was the best ever party we've been to. The buffets were out of this world, there was food for everyones taste and it was beautifully presented, excelling anything we've seen prepared before. A bit of advice for all you holiday makers, if you are looking for an enjoyable holiday Canasta is the place to stay, with tasty food, great company, comfortable and spotless rooms, brilliant entertainment and reasonable bar prices. It has become like home from home and we won't be staying anywhere else. Thanks Doug & Swampy, hope to see you for the illuminations. Becky, Lynn, Paddy (Taffy tom tom) & Cath xxx (sorry about the essay)
Our Reply:Hahaha - thanks very much for that kiddo!!!

Chris Davey says:Hi, I have enjoyed watching trams on the webcams, but have had problems connecting in the last few days. I was just wondering if there is a problem with them?This comment doesn't need to be published on the site, feel free to email me.
Our Reply:Hi Chris....I'll answer this here just so everybody knows because I may not get chance to update the webcam page until next week. The webcams are offline. The computer which works them has decided its had enough (not surprising because its been on 24/7 for 5 years now...and probably only a dozen reboots...)
Tramspotters will be pleased to know that we are upgrading the system to include another webcam and MAYBE one that you can rotate will be a week or two yet though.
