“Virgin supercar experience via Everyman Racing”

Written on: 13/07/2017 by mr_fisko (1 review written)

Terrible experience so far, bought for my birthday in June, booking in July yet there is only 1 date available at my nearest and chosen track (which I cannot make) before the voucher expires in Feb 18. Vouchers cannot be extended or refunded! I have a 2 hour drive to the next nearest location, which is a premium location....another 20! Cars not available....premium car available at extra 20, collision damage waiver at 40. Virgin you are embarrassing yourselves… Read Full Review

“Not for me”

Written on: 13/06/2017 by KylerLyons (1 review written)

I love Japanese food; Unfortunately this was a very underwhelming experience. Plum wine was ok but became sickly due to its sweetness. The sushi did not taste fresh, the tempura was greasy and bland and the gyoza was chewy. Hardly any sweets, the strawberries were mushy. Tea was weak and tepid, i've had better. If you are thinking about this experience opt for a traditional afternoon tea or an actual Japanese restaurant. Husband and i were still hungry. Not worth the money… Read Full Review

“Amazing experience”

Written on: 13/06/2017 by 21Bradford (1 review written)

I booked the Beatles story as a surprise for my other halfs birthday, he thoroughly enjoyed it, as did I. It was a great morning, and learnt so much about the Beatles life. I also booked the meal as a surprise. When we got there we were informed that there was a wedding reception going on and had the reception staff passed on our booking they would have recommended coming later when the wedding had moved on. Apart from this slight hiccup, the meal was delicious and the staff were friendly… Read Full Review

“An average time”

Written on: 13/06/2017 by Jamarionf36 (1 review written)

Some of the older cars are past it and should be retired, they are not worth the experience. To have to push start cars in 2017 is ridiculous. At least 2 were broken down and parked up, not a good advert at all. The newer cars are good fun, but the whole drive is over in minutes. Value for money???? Poor… Read Full Review

“Marco Pierre White”

Written on: 06/06/2017 by Dejaa457 (1 review written)

This 4 course tasting menu was purchased by my nephew as a Christmas present. The restaurant initially could not find my booking, however after a few minutes it was found booked under the name gaff! We were then shown to a small table at the top of the stairs, next to the serving cupboard. The food was good, the sides were £4.95 bumping up the price considerably. When our bill arrived a 12.5% discretionary service charge had been added. We always tip, but don't like to be forced Into it !!… Read Full Review

“Poor weather - average steak”

Written on: 06/06/2017 by rfMcKinnon290 (1 review written)

We visited the Shard during a torrential downpour which was unlucky I guess. The Shard itself was fine and we enjoyed the actual visit there, although the view was rather poor due to the weather. We went on to the London Steakhouse. WE were met and served by friendly staff. My wife chose fillet steak which was fine, I chose rump. The rump was supposed to be medium, although it was barely pink. It was also quite tough, and no better than one from the average chain of restaurants. Disappointing!… Read Full Review

“Awful customer service!! Do not buy gold package!!”

Written on: 04/06/2017 by Jadejem01 (1 review written)

I've never wrote a bad review but I feel I have to. Was so difficult to book the trip, it's booked with a third party, virgin experiences refuse to even transfer you to them. I waited so many times to get through to someone and when I finally did, I was told nobody was available or they were at lunch, promised call backs that never happened. I complained many times but I don't think they even logged my complaint, no apologies, nothing. Took months to get confirmation details and numerous calls… Read Full Review

“a fantastic birthday present”

Written on: 04/06/2017 by Stuart668 (1 review written)

My family all got together to buy the single seater experience for my birthday as I have been an avid formula one follower for 40 years. I could not have asked for a better day starting with everyone working for Silverstone. Everyone was happy from the guards on the gate to the people directly involved with the experience. The instructor in particular was outstanding and he made sure we all enjoyed the day. Well done Silverstone and a big pat on the back for everyone concerned… Read Full Review

Gorgeous room with seaview. Bed was really comfortable. Spa facilities were exceptional. The robes and slippers were useful. Sherry and gin in the room was a nice touch but we drank neither. Breakfast was wonderful too… Read Full Review

“Never Again”

Written on: 03/06/2017 by Bradshaw1994 (1 review written)

Despite most of the staff at Prestwold trying their best, the day was marred by the inability of the management company being able to process the sheer numbers of visitors. Waiting times were excessive between drives and and at times it felt like chaotic. The timescales for the day given to me at the time of booking bore no resemblance to what actually happened. Please on the promotional information be truthful, In reality this was a full, with day event with much time spent kicking your heels… Read Full Review
