Mrs L Moody, 10 months ago

Coach drivers excellent. Delay in being admitted to hotel although driver had advised them of our time of arrival. Swipe card did not work to get us on our floor, had to get a member of staff to let us through, not corrected till Wednesday. Unaware of other guests in hotel who queued to collect their food parcels as we were dining, very off putting. Small portions of food , poorly stocked bar and no entertainment.

Good driver, lovely coach, atrocious journry from Cambridge interchange to Southend Too many Dartford crossings......4 in all!! Hotel reasonable but meals well down on usual Shearings food. Some trips unsuitable for the less abled (we are not) but some struggled especially at Chatham Docks, which they. say they informed all coach operators that this was unsuitable for less abled travellers. if this had been our first trip it may well have been our last. Echoed by some other passengers too. Regards, Brian

Rooms and location excellent Breakfast and starters and deserts excellent but main course should have had a choice of 3 but the third one was always a vegetarian version of the first so to me it did not feel like 3 choices Now entertainment despite being advertised in brochure
