Please note, Clogwyn Station, which is 3/4 of way to the summit is as high as the trains can go in early spring when ice and snow prevents trains from reaching the summit.

Hotel was nice down stairs, but bedrooms need updating. Day trips was good. Coach driver Will was great, very funny and helpful.

Excellent work by Shearing’s staff. Rather shambolic first night dinner at hotel + diminishing ingredients for breakfast. Unable to get to summit of Snowdon. Obvs. not due to Shearings but not what was promised.

I enjoyed this holiday, North Wales is full of wonderful roads & scenery, the excursions were good, as was Llandudno & the base hotel. I would always look for holidays using Shearings wide range of holidays, many thanks!

Overall the holiday was good, the driver Chris made it a pleasant experience and the meals were good. Unfortunately there was a lot of waiting at interchanges. Poor quality of the rooms in the hotel and an out of order lift spoiled the experience. We booked on the premise of a lift being available in the hotel due to mobility issues for my husband and we were on the 3rd floor so the lift being out of action was a big issue. Very disappointed.

David Smith, 9 months ago

The chosen excursions were fantastic and our driver Chris went out of his way to make sure our coach trips were great. The food, staff and entertainment at our hotel was good but on the downside our hotel room located on the lower ground floor was the worst I've been in for years with no ventilation in the bathroom.

Fantastic holiday, Brilliant caring driver Chris, Hotel from Hell, the County. Ruined what was ideally a perfect holiday. Definitely NOT upto Shearings standards.
