  • Food and dancing of course, first class

    Mrs G Patterson - Christchurch
  • We were part of “Dancing at TLH with Pam Peters which was excellent!!! A fantastic teacher and great team support

    Mrs Leigh - Coventry
  • Absolutely brilliant, we had the most fun on the dance floor in a long time. As experienced dancers WITHOUT partners - this was the perfect break, a pleasure from beginning to end!
    Lynn Elvy & Lesley Fegan, Gerrard's Cross - Solos Ballroom & Latin dance break
  • We always enjoy our stays here. Our favourite hotel is the Carlton but you can't beat the Warwick Ballroom at the Victoria.  We are always guaranteed a good time with Sid & Roz, they give 100%.

    Ken & June Bush, Bristol - Sid & Roz Gateley Social dance break
  • Gerald & Margaret (Thompson) were brilliant, we didn't know what to expect, but we needn't have worried. They made us feel welcome from day one and their teaching skills are superb.
    Pat & Judith Bradley. Plymouth - Ballroom & Latin for Complete Beginners
  • Lorraine and I have just got back from a beginners weekend in Torquay. Neither of us have danced before and being two girls on our own we were worried about being in a room of couples. We shouldn't have spared it a thought - from the first session onwards we were made to feel very welcome- taught at a pace that we all (kind of) kept up with and actually felt we’d achieved something too!
  • Best bit - great fun and Phil and Chris were an absolute delight. Thank you for the most fun we’ve had in ages!
