Not comfy seats for an over night bus. Loud films and music was playing most of the journey. Don’t expect any blankets or a snack on this bus. Over an hour late leaving for no reason and over an hour early getting into the station
Coach was incredible, seats have SO much space, very comfortable. More comfortable than English coaches. The ability to recline so far was amazing. However, the arm rest doesn’t fold up high enough so got in the way and the toilet STANK for pretty much all the trip cause someone had diarrhoea in there before we even left and there was no flush. It stank very badly which meant we had to cover our noses for a lot of the trip.
