All about Irene

I have worked in the travel industry for over 17 years and cannot think of another job that I have had so much passion for. During this time I have had the opportunity to travel both with my family and also on some amazing educational trips all over the world!

I have holidayed extensively in Europe covering many of the Greek Islands, the Balearic Islands, Cyprus, Tunisia, Morocco and also covered a great deal of France. My favourite destination must be Sardinia, it is a short flight and the beaches are amazing, wonderful white sands and glorious clear blue sea. The mountainous scenery is stunning with views of the endless coastline. The Italian cuisine is varied and delicious and I could not fault the red wine too.

In later years I have enjoyed holidays to the Caribbean which included Barbados, Cuba and Jamaica. Each destination has its own individuality, the famous Oistins Fish Fry on a Friday night in Barbados is not to be missed here you can mix with locals and join the visitors to sample the local produce. I was also fortunate to experience a submarine dive and a catamaran cruise. A Safari trip taking in the wilder side of the east coast was also stunning.

The beaches in Cuba were outstanding, I also visited the home where Fidel Castro grew up and the city of Santiago de Cuba. The locals were so friendly and accommodating especially when we joined them on their Sunday trip to the beach where they take their own kitchen table and chairs and the whole family spend the day eating, dancing and passing the rum bottle around !!

Jamaica again offers some terrific experiences, Dunns River Falls for one, I was so elated to climb this amazing waterfall. My last few nights were spent at Strawberry Hill in the Blue Mountains where we had some relaxing spa treatments.

Just to say a big thankyou to Miles Morgan, especially Irene at the Monmouth Branch for making our holiday run so smoothly. All aspects of the booking were dealt with efficiently and in a friendly and helpful manner. We will definitely use you again and suggest to friends. Should also add that we were very impressed with the Kuoni side of things as well. Once again, thanks Irene.

– Mr Jones

I would like to thank Irene for booking our holiday to Dubrovnick, the Hilton Imperial Dubrovnick which Irene recommended, has a wonderful location just a few minutes walk to the Pile Gate entry to the old city of Dubrovnick. The service and food at the hotel was excellent and we could not fault anything. The flights and transfers were all very smooth and the weather was good which was a bonus. I would certainly continue to use Miles Morgan for my future holidays.

We have just returned from our holiday to Alexander The Great Hotel in Paphos. Having stayed at this hotel quite a few times we were very impressed to see they have had a huge refurbishment since our last visit. The food and service was excellent and lived up to previous standards. Our flights and private taxi transfer were all on time, we could not fault anything including the weather. Thanks again to Irene for organising another wonderful holiday.

- Mr & Mrs B Hughes

Thank you to Irene who arranged our trip to Sorrento in October. The hotel Best Western La Solara was excellent, uncluttered, and the staff were friendly and fun. Its exceptional food is obviously famous with the locals. Especially memorable are the Sunday evening musical 'banquets', many courses accompanied by amusing processions and rituals. Our guide arranged the usual trips for us and there was an introductory walking tour around Sorrento. Even the weather was outstanding!
It is outside the town on a busy road so there is no noise or bustle - the only minor snag was exactly timing the hourly shuttle there and back. There is nowhere one could wander from the hotel, but we were not there long enough to find this annoying. Altogether a nice escape and very good value at that time of year.
Thank you for your help and we hope to book with you again.

We had a wonderful holiday to Oman over the school half term. The food at The Shangri La Bar Al Jissah Resort & Spa Al Waha was excellent and a great choice, it was even possible to keep to a healthy option. The facilities at the hotel were ideal for children and adults. We were very impressed by Oman Airways. Thank you for organising our holiday and we will come back again to book any future holiday.

- Mr S Morgan

We have just returned from a lovely cruise with Fred Olsen. The food was excellent and the cabin very comfortable, the staff on board were lovely and friendly. The excursions were very good and we would now like to return to Madeira some time in the future. The taxi Irene organised was excellent and very punctual and the driver extremely polite and helpful.

- Mr & Mrs S

Thank you to Irene for booking another great trip. Everything ran to plan the overnight train from Chicago to Los Angeles was very enjoyable although the cabins are quite small. We then boarded a Panama Canal cruise with Princess the food was amazing and so much of it. It was a lovely cruise and the cabins were extremely comfortable. All the hotels we stayed in were excellent and in great positions. We are now looking forward to our next holiday which we have already booked with Irene

I would like to thank Irene for booking our holiday to New York and Toronto. We stayed in The Hotel Row in New York which was in a good location and we were allocated a huge room. I am glad we took Irene’s advice to upgrade to First Class on the rail journey from New York to Toronto it was well worth the extra.

- Ms H

Our holiday that Irene booked for us on The Star Clipper Cruise was a once in a life time experience. The quality of the service was excellent and food was also fantastic. We were glad we decided to book the deluxe cabin as it was better than most hotel rooms. The captain was extremely helpful and made everyone feel part of a team. My wife is not a great sailor so with the exception of the first night she enjoyed the whole experience.
