“Appalling treatment of a disabled lady passenger”

Written on: 24/06/2019 by suzydoll68 (1 review written)

This was our first holiday with Shearings. After discussing the needs of our group with the assistance team at Shearings we chose to go to Morecambe. No travel issues getting to the interchange at Normanton. The driver kept us informed along the way. He explained clearly what would happen when we arrived at our hotel. The hotel itself is slowly being updated but for a 3* it was ok. All the staff we're amazing. Any request was granted without any issue. The food was plain and simple. Good… Read Full Review

Ive been on many shearings holidays home and abroad they are amazing so good last oct myself and a friend went on the Newcastle and Durham 5 day holiday coach driver was brilliant the excursions hotel food drink and especially the coach driver was second to none.

“Broadway Park Hotel IOW”

Written on: 07/05/2019 by CaptF (1 review written)

Booked a Shearings Holiday at the Broadway Park Hotel IOW and paid £56 for an upgrade of room. On finding our room which was at the lowest point of the annex. It did not match the description of the web site. The bathroom needed attention as there was more sealant and rust around the taps. Asked at reception for another room to be told non available and our room was an upgrade. The upgrade was a bigger tv and access to an out side area which was in the woods and completely shaded and open to… Read Full Review

“Portion control gone too far”

Written on: 23/04/2019 by Scarygodmother (1 review written)

Unsatisfactory at best. As a regular and previously loyal customer I deplore this drop in standards of the evening meals in particular and feel Shearings is in danger of antagonising it's customers. The staff are helpful and polite. Breakfast is fine if a little understaffed. Unfortunately the evening meals are poor. Glutinous powdered soup, overcooked vegetables in tiny portions. Reminded me of school dinners. I asked for the 'succulent' ahem! pork without gravy and plain boiled potatoes… Read Full Review

“Paignton - Weekend Break”

Written on: 19/03/2019 by Sheraingsholiday (1 review written)

Just returned from a long weekend break in Paignton. Cannot fault the coach driver he was excellent. Do have to complain about the length of time it took us to get to and from the resort 10 hours on a coach is not a lot of fun. Would not recommend the hotel in the resort either Esplanade in Paignton leaves a lot to be desired. The evening meals provided would struggle to feed a small child let alone an adult. Soup was cold and when I complained I was told the chef said it should be served… Read Full Review

“Great value for money”

Written on: 16/09/2018 by EdDover (1 review written)

My wife and I have today returned from the Shearings Heart Of Germany tour (9th-16th Sept). The journey to and from was comfortable. We stayed overnight at the Best Western in Holland. A good 4 star accommodation. The sad part was that we arrived too late to purchase an evening meal, but knowing you are on a coach trip, you cover those eventualities and take snacks. Following our journey to the destination we arrived in Goslar, a stunning little town. We dined in a pub/restaurant which was… Read Full Review

“Paris holiday”

Written on: 16/09/2018 by tywyncouple (1 review written)

this holiday was great, the hotel in itself was lovely but there was no choice on the menu there wasn't even a menu, we had no idea what was going to served to us in the evening we just sat in the restaurant and waited to see what was put in front of us, on the Tuesday evening we had a steak topped with a sauce, the meat was so tough and in some cases very rare, 85% of the coach party could not eat it. the room was very nice apart from the paper cups we had to make our tea or coffee in, surely… Read Full Review

“Evening meals let the Hotel down”

Written on: 20/07/2018

We had a great holiday in Bergerac Bordeaux & Dordogne, very well organized holiday. We had an excellent driver with good knowledge of the areas around France. The Hotel was nice but let down by the evening meal they were brought in from an outside catering company not good hardly any choice would have been better to have eaten out. Breakfast was excellent continental style. The staff were very helpful and friendly Hotel very clean. THE EVEING MEALS NEED TO BE SORTED OUT SHEARINGS!!!… Read Full Review

“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
