    ‘The whole event was PHENOMENAL.  The dance shows in the evening were stunning and spectacular and it has been a tremendous privilege to see such top pro’s in such an intimate environment; like a private show.  The workshops were great fun AND we learned loads.  The staff were all really helpful and polite.  The venue was perfect.  We’re both physically tired but delighted that we came to our first such event. We have already booked for next year; of course!  Your efforts are hugely appreciated. A fantastic job supremely well done’

    Martin & Angela

    ‘Thank you for a fabulous weekend, everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. All the members of our party (of 24) who had not been before were very pleasantly surprised by how much they enjoyed themselves and the whole dancing experience. So well done to you all yet again!’ 

    Eddie & Linda 

    Thank you for a perfect weekend! The venue is great, the food good and the showcase performances were fantastic. We loved all the strictly performances especially Vincent & Flavia and their workshops were all excellent I’m sure we learned more in a weekend here than we have in the past year! All the best, hope to see you again. 

    Jim & Jacquie  

    This was our first dance weekend and we were a little nervous as we only had a little dance experience. Did not need to worry.  Everyone was friendly & welcoming, classes were well spaced out and taught at just the right level. Hotel facilities were great, service wonderful and food very good. Meeting & watching the strictly stars dance was an added bonus & gave us a standard to aim for.  


    This was a stunning weekend. As a non-dancer I was dragged along by my dancing wife, reluctant and resistant all the way. I expected to feel foolish, inept and inferior, and I suspected Alton Towers would be tacky and plastic. I am delighted to say that I could not have been more wrong on every count! The hotel was fun and high quality, and the staff were the friendliest and most genuine I have ever encountered (sample size of hundreds of hotels world wide), right up to the doorman dancing with my wife! The Donaheys staff were brilliant from the first welcome to the last farewell; the workshops with Strictly stars were so good that I felt like a dancer within minutes and even had the confidence to venture out in the evenings – with absolutely no disdainful looks from anyone, no matter how advanced.  I hugely enjoyed every minute of the weekend – so much so that I bought a pair of dancing shoes and I can’t wait for my next lesson! Thanks to you and to your team for everything, and we look forward to bringing a group with us next year. 

    Julian & Swann

    What an amazing weekend! We have enjoyed every single second. We have enjoyed all the workshops. Meeting the professionals has been a true experience and it has been wonderful to be tutored by them. The workshops run by your team have been great fun and we have learnt so much. This has been such a professionally run weekend we cannot fault it. The shows were outstanding. We very much enjoyed the Milonga hour where the professionals were able to give their personal instructions. 

    Helen & Neil 

    What a fantastic weekend! You must be really delighted that all that planning came together to deliver such a great end product. Thank you on behalf of all our pupils who had the benefit of being there to enjoy it.  Please keep up the good work and pass our thanks to your team.  Thanks again for a brilliant weekend.
