On Monday 31st August our Thomson plane back to Glasgow was cancelled due to adverse weather. Thomson did an excellent job in arranging alternative accommodation for an overnight stay. The passengers on the Glasgow flight were taken to the Rui Palace, where our rooms were efficiently allocated. My room was large, very clean and had a very comfy bed. It also had a good, powerful shower.We were given dinner, which looked and tasted delicious and the house wine was good.the show cooking was excellent. Breakfast had the same huge choice, with tea/ coffee served in pots. Lunch, again with wine also had a huge choice and was also delicious. Thanks to both Thomson and the Rui Palace for looking after us so well.
