Love the hotel, was there during March 2014, it is the second time we have been there with Shearings. But, do have a major problem with the shearings coach drivers, Bill and Karen, who appear to be married. In my opinion they do not take passenger safety seriously. I believe that they often swap tachos so one or the other driver can exceed their driving time. Bill often drove far faster than the speed limit on through the lakeside villages, even Karen, his wife stated he drove like an Italian once.

Another time, on the journey to Italy, during the night, they stopped for fuel, both drivers lit up cigarettes whilst fueling on the forecourt, simply not believable! On the journey home, the strange detour into Belgium to visit the Chocolate/cheap cigarettes factory. Bill missed the entrance to a motorway service station, so reversed back up the carriage way.

I have a lot of time normally for Shearings drivers, but since this, never again.

Great hotel though

    I think it would be very sensible to write to Shearings with your concerns about the drivers. It's not relevant to the hotel itself, nor to Griante, and I'm sure Shearings will appreciate your comment. Shearings' email contact is here:
