Hotel and location great. We are finding big differences between quality of coach and drivers - both vital to get right for express coach holidays - as Shearings holidays are ‘franchised out’ to various coach companies etc. The Shearings brand and standard cannot be relied upon. Our drivers were pleasant and the coach was clean and spacious However little communication and no notice at reception made us feel out of the loop as we didn’t do any trips. Cannot be sure we will book next year as other travellers talked to en route home had very different experiences including cramped coaches, poor food and dangerous driving. Will we book next year?????

Not enough information on the day of the trips. Confusion about the train trip dropped on the outskirts of St Moritz that wasn't open. Packed lunches seriously lacking. All inclusive should end at the same time as it started - start at 1pm on the day of arrival and finish at 1pm on the day of departure!

Time spent in hotel was great but the drivers dumped us at or near our excursion destination with no information, no background history or anything. On our tour round the lake we stopped at dingo and was told there was a statue of mussolini, nowhere to be found.

Ok so this was the second coach trip to mainland Europe, I am not going to lie the coach journey was hard to and from the UK. The drivers did a great job, the hotel was signed as three star, the food was good, the hotel staff were reasonable, the room was good, however the bathroom did not have extractor fan in it which is unhygienic. The maintenance of the hotel needs to be looked at in all communal and rooms area. The hotel did have a swimming pool which nice to take the edge of the heat. All in all not bad for my second coach trip, did meet some nice people on our journey which helped.

Loved it all - beautiful location. Only downside is extra early start time and later arrival home time as no central joining points anymore.
