Very good Shearing coach holiday,departing on 13 August. Coach which was on hire from Durham City Coaches as excellent, brand new and very comfortable for the very long journey from the Midlands. The hotel looked a bit tired but this is typical of many Shearing hotels. They don't charge the Ritz prices so you don't expect the Ritz hotel !!!!...

I specifically asked for a double bed, I was given a room with 2 single beds & was suggested to push them together. The room was dirty, the bath was filthy, the tiny outdated tv sat below the height of the bed making it impossible to watch whilst lying down, the windows wouldn't stay open, no toiletries made available, no...

Went with Shearing to this hotel for a week (9-16th July). Not brilliant but room was clean although shower didn't work very good, we had a sea view, the best part.

Stayed here for 3 nights on a self drive weekend. The hotel has a good location with the sea across the road. On entering the hotel you can see it is rather dated. The whole hotel could do with being refurbished. We did not ask for a seaview room but we did get one which was great. The room itself...

Enjoyed my stay at this hotel, the staff were pleasant and very hardworking. My only complaint was that there were no toiletries, only two little bits of soap, toilet paper was very cheap and the shower was virtually uncontrollable also I found trying to get the internet impossible.
