Just returned excellent service food great very clean. Went with Shearings. Upgraded to a lake view and balcony 50 euros well worth it. Another shearings holiday to be recommended. Drivers Bill and Karen just perfect in every way. Organisation, laughter galore! And of course as drivers.

Coaching Holiday to the above hotel. Sorry, all complaints. Traveled with a coach company over two days there and two days back. 5 days in the hotel. Stayed in an IBIS in Rheims on the way out and a Novotel on the way back. I would have taken either of these hotels as the destination hotel. They were clean and... More

Went with Shearings and overall a really good holiday. The non-stop overnight journeys there and back were not enjoyable. I expected a more spacious coach so not much room and sleep nigh impossible. Plenty of comfort stops and nice scenery when daylight.. The coach drivers, Waldek and Nigel, were polite and helpful but not too informative. The pick up points... More

We stayed one night at the hotel Britannia. It is very well situated along Como lake with a wonderful view and very nice interior design with a 4+ star feeling. A bit puzzeling is the fact that all the rest seems to come from a highway motel. Staff is friendly but not really forthcoming. This is not so surpricing since... More

We travelled with Shearings on this coach trip, and had excellent drivers in Alex and Paul. Like a lot of people, we upgraded to lake view with balcony for 50 euros, and it was well worth it, although mostly the view across the lake was spoilt by poor weather and mist. Meals were buffet style and we enjoyed the food,... More

Just got back from a Shearings trip to this hotel, I really enjoyed the holiday, when you first arrive it's obviously very busy with a coach load of tired travellers to check in but the reception staff work fast and efficiently to check everyone in. We did upgrade to a lake view with balcony and I don't regret it. I... More

We stayed on an overnight coach holiday with Shearings for six nights and also upgraded our room to Lake View with balcony for a special offer of 50 euros which was well worth it. The room was spacious, clean and had fantastic views across the lake. Some fellow travellers told me their rooms were small however this is a large... More
