Good service.

Trevor K.January 8, 2018 | 

Seats were unclean. Toilet door was broken and banged the entire journey and the back half of the bus absolutely stunk of urine. We had to move to the front not long after setting off.

I will be putting in a formal complaint later. Suffice to say that the service was awful, I will not be using national express again and will be recommending to friends and family that they give your 'service' a wide berth in future.if I could have scored lower than the survey suggests I would have.
