"this day trip was a disaster, which was not only due to the weather, we left Newbury late just before 11am.There was no chance of getting the 11:30 ferry. We had booked the Isle of Wight by Hovercraft, not Gunwharfe Quay, not Dockyard or the Spinnaker Tower, which was part of the reason which made us late for the ferry, where we were booked for a 11:30 ferry, we arrived at 12:30 we were told our ferry was not until 13:45, and were told the return Ferry was 16:30 which meant being there for 16:15 . Which only gave us just over 2 hours on the island which did not give us a lot of time to look around the Island and as it was our first time, there just was not enough time to explore"

"Hi, I can only apologise regarding this. We had run exactly the same trip, in exactly the same way, earlier in the year with no problems at all. Unfortunately, due to bad weather and traffic conditions the coaches were late by the time all of the pick ups had been done. Although we then tried to amend the schedule as much as we could, the coaches were late getting to the Hovercraft. Apologies again."

"Having tried several other companies, we now use Barnes Coaches for all our race meetings. As ever, the coach arrived on time for our trip to Goodwood, and as ever, the driver was "above and beyond" the call of duty, helping load and unload all the picnic requisites, food, drink and shelter. Happily this year the shelter provided respite from the sun, not the deluge of 2017."

"As ever, a friendly, professional and prompt service. Our driver, Charlie, was helpful and calm, even in the face of some crazy driving by other road users. The coach was immaculate, timings were accurate and we will definitely book with Barnes again. 'Always our first choice for coach travel in Swindon."

"How did the journey go? : Journey went really well I thought. The driver - appearance and helpfulness? : The Driver well what can I say he is very friendly, helpful and good at keeping everyone up to date with things (Ross) couldn't fault him at all (Again a big thank you Ross) The vehicle - was it clean and comforable? The Vechicle was very clean just legroom got abit annoying at times but prob get that with all coaches and the only bad thing I can say is the toilet isn't as big as other coaches I have been on but despite that I would still come on one of your coaches again."

"I wasn’t personally on the coach as it was used to transport my evening guests to my wedding. I ordered a 19 seater but got a full sized coach so there was plenty of room for everyone! The coach arrived when it was supposed to and stayed at the venue until it was time to leave. I’ve been told it was comfortable and a good journey. Thank you!"

"Excellent service, can't fault it. The coach arrived on time, the driver was excellent, and the coach clean and comfortable. But what really made the service was the people I spoke to booking the coach, they were friendly, helpful and easy to speak to, even with my annoying questions! Would highly recommend Barnes coaches."
