GRAHAM MEYNELL says:HI ALL FANTASTIC NIGHT ON THE 17 01 04 ROOM 16 FANTASTIC ROOM AND THE VIEW IS PERFECT ILL BE BACK GRAHAM
PS I DO NOT RECOMMEND THE ITALIAN RESTARANTE TOWARDS TOWER ITS BELOW PATH LEVEL AND THE FOOD IS AWFUL
Our Reply:Thanks Graham!!
Glad you enjoyed it
Come back soon
You should have asked for our recommendations regarding restaurants - we always send folk to Mamma's in town centre - delicious Italian food (steak and chicken dishes too) - and GREAT atmosphere - busy restaurant (who wants to go to a quiet restaurant??) but can usually get in without a reservation

Bob says:Doug, Please tell Elaine that I played first round of golf after massage today. One member of our group said I hadn't swung like that for at least 10 years. I went round in 9 over par, not bad for an old codger off 17. My grateful thanks and if you were nearer I'm sure you'd have a lot of the geriatric members of Cathkin Braes Golf Club looking for a massage. Regards and best wishes.Bob
Our Reply:Hi Bob
I'll pass this on as soon as I see her
Glad it worked!!
Keep Swingin'
regards

Arrived home safely and would like to thank you all for giving us an exellent new year's celebration at the "Canasta", all the guests were like one big happy family.

Nigel, Jenny & Ian Best says:Dear Doug & Mandy,
Just a quick e-mail to say thank you very much for a memorable stay at your hotel for the New Year. We brought "Elvis" with us who is a truck driver for MFI but loves to entertain all our family with his impersonation of Elvis. We all think he has hidden his light under a bushell for many years and is not over-confident about his singing ability and it was a joy to see so many people enjoying his performance. My wife also took to the karaoke for the very first time and thoroughly enjoyed it (although since you didn't have any Gary Newman, I wouldn't get up!!). We found every aspect of the hotel more than suitable for our needs and would not hesitate to book again. On the journey home, we were talking about booking a couple of days for the illuminations. Thank you very much to you, Mandy and your staff for making our New Year such an enjoyable and pleasant experience. We look forward to booking with you again in the future.Thank you once again.Nigel, Jenny & Ian Bestand on behalf of Elvis and his wife (Sue & Brian McManaman)
Our Reply:Hi guys

Brian was just a bit FANTASTIC wasn't he!!!!!
Please come back soon

"To disappoint is easy. To come up to standards is normal but to exceed is hard. The Canasta so exceeded expectations we have already re-booked! "
