We've just had a great 5 day break with Shearings to the Majestic. We found the hotel clean, the food was good and the staff were all friendly and helpful. Our waitress Loran was a lovely girl and Mario the barman who also happened to be her boyfriend was really nice, always a smile on his face. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them. The entertainment was possibly the best I've seen for a long time and that was down to Amanda Jayne, what a star. On the Thursday night "which happened to be my birthday and also Valentine's day" she was joined by Neil Scott and between them they had everyone in stitches.The only things you could complain about as some other people have said is the old tiny tv's, ours had only 3 channels, our friends next door got a couple more, but we didn't really spend that much time in the room. Also the creaky floors, we were in room 220 and whoever was above us must have suffered from insomnia as they spent the night walking round and round! Yes Shearings do cater for the more elderly but to be honest it was a mixed age group that particular week ranging I would say from mid 40' upwards, and most people stayed up until the entertainment finished. In fact I think it possibly went on later than usual. All in all though we really enjoyed our stay there and would definately go again.
