Staff got angry for me because I said my arrival place is London. Actually my arrival place is Golder something, but in the itinerary and ticket was written in London (golder something...), so I said "London". They got so angry for me. I just said as Ticket shows. I felt so bad.
The bus are not comfortable at all ( assuming that I took a night bus service , I expected a little more comfort ). I couldn’t lay down my seat not even a few cm ( it was broken), the power plug wasn’t working , the staff were extremely rude with other passengers and arrive late because the staff and another passenger start to argue .
The bus didn't have any plugs, so there was no way of charging anything, which made the 11 hour bus extremely dull. Also I am now covered in tiny bites from something that I didn't have before I boarded, so even though it's cheap, I wouldn't do it again as it seems it had fleas
The bus trip was great and I can’t believe how cheap it was to get from Edinburgh to London. The drivers were very nice and helpful and the two drivers we had for the second half of the trip had a bit of tension to contend with with passengers talking loudly on their mobiles and one girl constantly using her mobile and driving one man to yell at her. The driver handled these situations very well.
Coach journey excellent but let down by conditions at Victoria bus station.
It was like going back in time (looked the same as when I travelled there 50 years ago.)
Squalid, hot , dirty, crowded, no where to sit.
London should be ashamed of itself.
It was a pleasure to get on the coach !!!
