Join us at this special time of the year for a lovely Christmas<br />

in York.<br />

Few cities rival the historic splendour of York with Christmas Time a<br />

particular highlight on the calendar. Steeped in history spanning 2000<br />

years, York is a compact walled riverside city home to world-class<br />

attractions. We stay within the medieval city walls allowing you time<br />

to explore the historic centre, with its lovely waterfront and cobbled<br />

streets. The city’s medieval centre adds an authenticity to the Christmas<br />

celebrations so come along and soak up the atmosphere. York is foody<br />

heaven, and a great place to go out and relax in one of the coffee<br />

shops or traditional taverns. The hotel offers a slightly more laid back<br />

Christmas Break including some live entertainment in the evenings but<br />

there is plenty more on offer on the<br />

doorstep if you wish to explore.<br />

Break in York most of your time will be<br />

England complete with overhanging<br />

timber-framed houses and traditional<br />

shopfronts. York Minster, one of the<br />

largest cathedrals in Northern Europe<br />

is also on the must do list. On every<br />

Some hotels charge a supplement for these rooms, the cost of which is<br />

indicated in this brochure.<br />

We try to indicate all the room and hotel facilities for each hotel within the<br />

information in this brochure but cannot accept liability for any alterations made<br />

by the hotel before our arrival. Sometimes amenities such as swimming pools<br />

and lifts may be out of service whilst entertainment may be curtailed, altered or<br />

cancelled due to hotel number.<br />

Hot drink making facilities are not normally available in Continental hotel<br />

bedrooms but are usually available at the bar/café.<br />

When travelling abroad, you should expect the food to be served in the national<br />

custom and therefore different to British cuisine. For some hotels, particularly<br />

overnight hotels the restaurant will serve a set menu. If, when you are at the<br />

hotel, you require an alternative this is normally available but may incur an<br />

additional cost for you.<br />

These days, many hotels are excellent at providing Special Diets. Please let us<br />

know as soon as possible so they can make preparations early.<br />

Many meals are taken as a group in the restaurants and usually involve sharing<br />

tables with 2 or more other diners in our group.<br />

HOLIDAY ITINERARIES AND SUITABILITY<br />

We pride ourselves on the planning of our holidays to provide an exciting<br />

and enjoyable holiday experience. Many are planned months in advance and<br />

may require adjustment to the itineraries due to changes at destinations or<br />

attractions.<br />

Our itineraries are displayed in the brochure and you should carefully consider<br />

suitability before booking your holiday. You are, of course, quite welcome not<br />

to join any particular excursion during your holiday.<br />

Provided we are informed before departure, we are happy to take manual<br />

walking aids and folding wheelchairs up to 15kg in weight. Unfortunately, we are<br />

not able to carry any electric wheelchairs or scooters, although these are often<br />

available to hire at the destination.<br />

HOLIDAY CANCELLATION<br />

If we have to cancel a holiday this is always done well in advance of your<br />

departure date and a full refund is given.<br />

Due to the contract obligations and financial commitments we have with hotels<br />

if you have to cancel your holiday you will have to pay cancellation charges.<br />

These are based on the following scale depending on how close to departure<br />

we receive your cancellation.<br />

More than 42 days – Deposit only<br />

42-28 days – 30%<br />

27-14 days – 45%<br />

13-7 days – 60%<br />

Less than 7 days – 100%<br />

However, if you do cancel more than 42 days before your departure date we will<br />

transfer your deposit less a £10 per person administration fee to another holiday<br />

currently available.<br />

We do advise you to take out travel insurance to cover any of your loses.<br />
