“A small piece of heaven. ”

Written on: 26/03/2018

My husband and I arrived back from the hotel Ascherwirtin Brandenburg Austria at the beginning of March,it was another lovely holiday with Shearing. The hotel was lovely with views to die for, every thing covered in snow but with blue skies and the sun shining. Hotel staff were very friendly even taking us on a candle lit walk after dinner one evening followed by glu wine.The trip on the Wendelstien railway was wonderful with the most amazing views, would love to do this again. The trips to… Read Full Review

Wendilinn's Comment

Written on: 23/03/2018

Hi we've been to the Bay View hotel twice. Worth paying extra for the sea view rooms they have an amazing view. We liked the hotel. If you are travelling from Yorkshire you might have the driver we had who was a brilliant driver, very smooth ride. Don't forget your earphones though so you can listen to your radio, his constant chatter drove us to distraction. Going to Isle of Wight this year. Enjoy St Ives.

“cancellation ”

Written on: 10/12/2017 by Amiyahh108 (1 review written)

Due to reasons beyond our control we had to cancel a booked break over a month in advance, no customer friendly retention,just pay us or we will add costs on and send it on to a collection company, we have spent a huge amount at shearings in the past, not a penny more will go to this customer unfriendly company, you are a booking number, no more, spend money where it is appreciated holiday companies we use are usually very helpful in resolving issues not purely money orientated. … Read Full Review

“Damaged Luggage”

Written on: 07/12/2017 by KeithOgden (1 review written)

This was the fourth time travelling with Shearings and have not encountered any problems before. This holiday was a present for my husbands 60th birthday. The hotel is great and the staff are friendly. The food is fine although I personally didn't like the self service breakfast facilities. The trips were fairly interesting except Trago Mills which is just a huge shop and a waste of money to pay extra for. My suitcase arrived at our room on Monday badly damaged and I was told that a member of… Read Full Review

“Good midweek break”

Written on: 04/12/2017

A good location for this hotel with easy access to the town.Lounges had been recently refurbished and looked good. All staff encountered were friendly, helpful and polite.Room was too small for a double but clean and fresh looking. Food was acceptable.Coach driver was a knowledgeable local, drove well and took us to many interesting places and gave us enough time to look around and explore.Return transfer from Membury could have been a lot better… Read Full Review

“Dreadful Holiday Company..........Avoid! Avoid! Avoid!”

Written on: 20/11/2017 by Coyle71 (1 review written)

My friend and I booked a 5 night holiday in Weymouth in June 2017 and stayed at the Royal Weymouth Hotel. On arrival to our room we immediately smelt a pungent smell and complained to the manager who sent a housekeeper to spray the room with air freshener which did not banish this foul odour. We requested a change of room which we were denied. The beds were not only uncomfortable to sleep in but the mattress was very heavily stained with body fluids and when we asked to have a replacement… Read Full Review

“Journey from Hell!”

Written on: 24/08/2017 by McDermottan480 (1 review written)

We were on a 5 day holiday to see the Palaces in London. We were picked up by a feeder coach at 07.10 which then went on to to 4 other pickups and eventually arrive at the Corley services on M6 at 10am. We then had to wait an hour for the main coach, which went to Warwick services and we waited 3 HOURS for 2 more feeder coaches to meet up with us! We eventually arrived in London 2 hours later making a total of 9 hours travelling, we were shattered - surely this journey could be better… Read Full Review

Just got back from a Shearings holiday to The Grand Hotel in Exmouth.The hotel was excellant,apart from the bar prices,and the trips were also very good.The only real down side was the time spent travelling to and from the resort.We left Norwich at 07.10 and arrived in Exmouth at 16.45, a total of 9 hours and 35 minutes!!Coming home was even worse, we left Exmouth at 08.45 and arrived in Norwich at 20.00,a total of 11 hours and 15 minutes!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/06/2017 by Armstrong250 (1 review written)

Been with Shearings on holidays for quite a few years now and the price of parking car at Stretton keeps going up and up £6 a day now is a bit steep. After all we are not trevelling on your feeder coaches so the cost of car parking should be cheaper… Read Full Review

“Would definitely recommend - except you're a singleton!”

Written on: 02/05/2017 by Jalen451 (1 review written)

This year I have taken 2 great 5-day holidays with Shearings, one to Melrose and the other to Holland. On the strength of my experiences I've been trying to book another break On-line for September but have repeatedly got 'Holiday is currently not on sale.' The trouble is, it is on sale - to couples. I contacted Customer Services, to be informed that one has to book early to get a single room. Given this situation pertains to two different hotels, how smug of Shearings. The coach for both… Read Full Review

“ BAY INCLUSIVE - Torquay”

Written on: 10/04/2017

Fast and easy booking online. From the moment I checked in, I was made to feel so welcome all the staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is at the top of a hill, out of the centre of Torquay a 15minute, downhill walk to the seafront. There is a bus (stop near the hotel) which can take you down into town and on to Paignton, or in the other direction to Newton Abbott and beyond. Room was very comfortable and clean with an ensuite shower and WC. All meals were delicious. Good choice… Read Full Review

“Totally incompetent.”

Written on: 03/04/2017 by MikeCooper123 (1 review written)

I booked a coach holiday (for four) to Holland to visit the bulb fields starting May 7th 2017 in November and paid the deposit of £296.00. 8th March 2017 I received an email saying the hotel name had changed.The hotel was not the one we were due to stay in and was in a different location. I emailed Shearing's about this but did not get a reply. I paid in full the cost of the holiday a few days later and they gladly accepted the payment. On 29th March I received an email stating that our… Read Full Review

I have just returned from a mid week break at the Lansdown Court Hotel in Bath. I can sum up my total experience in one word-Excellent. From being picked up until return home, the organisation was first class I cannot praise Shearings staff and the hotel staff highly enough. They were 1st class from beginning to end. Well done… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/11/2016 by Thornton1955 (1 review written)

18 of us have just come back from self drive turkey and tinsel at bay royal in Weymouth. This was the worst turkey and tinsel I have been on. My partner had his own coach company so I have been on many. Hotel was freezing, no disabled room available for a couple who had booked as it was given to somebody else. Entertainment was terrible. Mulled wine we couldnt touch untill the coach people arrived in the evening. No father Christmas. One lady had no working toilet for three days despite… Read Full Review
