Product review:

The food continues to deteriorate at HF Houses. The chefs seem to be spending a lot of time on presentation rather than quality. The selection of vegetables is poor or non existent. Some of the portions are inadequate. There is no longer a regular tureen of soup. The banquet evening was particularly bad with very little choice and a strange mix of ingredients.

Service review:

It is good that single people can go on holiday and feel part of the group.

Product review:

I get the feeling that the walks are somewhat contrived - it it difficult to get a fortnights set of walks that each have something different. Just wonder how many of your clients stay for more than week. Changing the walks annually might be attractive to those who have been to a particular centre before.
Thank you for your feedback

I am sorry that you felt our walks at Dovedale were not quite right. Usually this is one of our best scoring walk programmes. I will pass your comments onto my colleagues who plan our UK walking holidays to take note.

I do hope that we will be able to welcome you on another HF holiday in the future.

Kind regards
