I write with grateful thanks to you driver Mr john Best who was our driver whilst we had been on holiday at the Court Royal, Bournemouth on 23rd June to 30th June 2013. Here was a true gentleman who made the holiday one to remember by his thoughtfulness and utmost attention to the needs of his passengers. His conduct was at all times above reproach.
The Drivers of you Company are the front line for your Company and should be valued as such as they can make or break our holiday. Mr Best is well named as he is a jewel in Cresta Coaches crown. Congratulations on employing such a gentleman.

We have just arrived back from a week in Weston Super Mare where your company provided the coach for our holiday via Grand UK Holidays. Your driver Rob gave an excellent service during our stay. His sense of humour, politeness and general cheerful attitude made our stay enjoyable even though the weather left a lot to be desired. More drivers like Rob are needed where nothing is too much trouble to make a holiday go with a swing. Well done Rob, and thankyou.
Dear Cresta Coaches
I am writing to you in the response to a trip to Folly Farm you provided on Wednesday 29th May 2013. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for making the journey enjoyable and welcoming.

Dear Cresta Coaches
Having just returned from a Leisuretime weekend break to St Ives, on which you provided the coach, I feel I should write to compliment your driver Rob Lee. Rob was everything and more you could wish for in a driver. He was extremely flexible and nothing was too much trouble for him. He certainly went the ‘extra mile'. He is an employee that you should be proud of, always extremely cheerful and had a kind word for all his passengers, a perfect gentleman. If you operate an employee of the month then I would like to nominate Rob for it.
We are part of a tour group organised by Newmarket Holidays earlier this Month that went to Portmerion on April 22nd 2013 and we would like to register the excellence of the coach driver Rob and your Company.
From the start to the finish of the holiday Rob provided a ‘'Bonus'' to the tour with his excellent driving and his humour to match. His flexibility and attention to details, together with that of the tour guide John provided by Newmarket Holidays meant that we all had a most enjoyable four day weekend.
Please pass on our appreciation to all concerned.
Phillip Geobey & Monica Geobey
Dear Cresta Coaches
I travelled on a Cresta coach driven by Rob on a Newmarket Holidays trip to North Wales from 19th-22nd April. I would like say that he was a careful, obliging, considerate, consistent driver who even made announcements when tour guide lost his voice. Rob was never out of temper BUT his jokes can only be described as grown worthy. A thoroughly enjoyable time. Thank you Rob.
I have just return from a trip to the Isle of Man with yourselves booked via Newmarket Holidays and I wish to thank you for the service of your driver Rob. He was always there if we needed him and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. If the chance should arise in the future of a tour on one of your vehicles I would not hesitate to book again.
Thank you again
Once again you and your driver have treated 29 Probus ladies to a really special day out to the Houses of Parliament of Thursday 11th April 2013.
Unfortunately I personally was unable to go but I have heard nothing but glowing reports of the trip. The driver Alan Griffiths seemed very familiar with London and as such the whole trip went without any hitch. Also the ladies really enjoyed the stop at Windsor on the way home.
Thank you for the help in the organisation of this trip.
Just got back from our trip and wanted to say a big thank you to our driver Rob Lee for putting up with us lively bunch of girls on our trip to Nottingham for my friends hen party! Not only was he on time to pick us up he was really nice and is an asset to cresta coaches! Thanks again Rob
A huge thank you from all players and parents at Tondu RFC U16's who travelled with Cresta Coaches to Heathrow Airport for our flight to Barcelona (Tour) - February 2013. . Our driver John was absolutely marvellous and very efficient getting us to the airport well before time. It was a smooth and trouble free booking with Heidi and journey with John and would definitely recommend this company to any one. Thanks again Ian and gang.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for taking Bridgend Athletic Youth to Surrey on the weekend of the 16th & 17th February 2013 and I apologise for the delay in sending this testimonial.
Every aspect of the trip was excellent and this was in no small way thanks to your driver Alan, who was an excellent ambassador for your Company. Alan was a pleasure to be with and by far one of the best driver's we as a rugby team have ever been associated with. I hope we are able to call on your services again and on behalf of the Boys, Coaches and management team of Bridgend Athletic Youth we are extremely grateful.

Thank you yet again from the Cardiff Cyncoed Ladies Probus group who enjoyed their trip on Tuesday to the Bath Christmas Market. Unfortunately because due to ill health I was unable to go but they all seemed to enjoy the day.
Once again your attention to detail made my job so easy. We are hoping in the Spring to go to the Houses of Parliament so I will be back through to you in the New Year. In the meantime a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and the staff at Cresta.

Dear Cresta Coaches
Having just returned from a Shearing Holiday to Llandudno North Wales that you provided a coach for, I feel I should write to you complimenting the driver Rob Lee who for the whole week was most attentive to the needs of his passengers particularly to some like myself who required that little more assistance.
Rob is a great credit to your company.
Yours faithfully R.J.Skinner, Herts
I felt I wanted to write personally to thank you for your excellent services. On Saturday 2nd June Barry Brass Band hired the services of one your coaches to take us to Charlton Hawthorne in Somerset for their Jubilee Celebrations. This is the third time we have used your coaches and on each occasion the service has been wonderful. I really like the touch of the telephone call a couple of days in advance to confirm details. This does really help to quell any concerns and gives piece of mind to worriers like myself. On behalf of myself and Barry Brass Band a huge 'Thank You'.

Just wanted to drop you and your drivers (and obviously forward it to Ian) a big thank you email. The timing and conduct of your team of drivers for our wedding on Sunday 30th October was excellent. The drivers were pleasant, helpful and exemplary considering the state of the passengers on the way back! I hope they enjoyed themselves as much as we did and hope they had no complaints and if they did let me know please. Thanks once again for a great service and taking away my transport headaches away! Bye! Gash Bhullar

Dear Cresta Coaches
I am writing to say a big thank you for our driver Dave on our visit to Highclear. A good driver can make or break a day out, and yesterday he was a star. Throughout the day he was attentive and his driving skills were excellent, I wish to thank him personally for his patience with my ladies, they all loved him.
Also at the end of the day he did his best to ensure a lady taken ill was attended to by the paramedics, and waited until all was under control. His actions yesterday are a credit to himself and you as a company.
If you will pass on my thanks and that of my ladies please. The lady concerned is now resting in hospital awaiting results of tests etc. Finally can I put in a request for Dave to drive us again please?

On behalf of all the passengers may I take this opportunity to thank our driver Alan Griffiths for his patience, care and professionalism whilst driving us for the four journeys.

As you are very much aware, in recent years, I have used your Company to convey members of the ladies group at Brackla Tabernacle Church to a number of Various Locations and events in and around the South Wales area.
I have always been very pleased with the excellent service that has been provided. Your coaches have always been clean and comfortable, and your drivers, who have always been on time, have been very respectful, and helpful to every one.
On Thursday 10th February, your company conveyed a small group of us to Cardiff for a visit to the holiday or Ice Show at the C.I.A. This was the first time that we had had Rob your driver, and I am writing to say that even by your high standards of service the service Rob gave as was exceptional, nothing was too much trouble for him, and he did much to ensure that our journey was both safe and enjoyable.
There is no doubt that Rob is an asset to your company, and I would appreciate if these comments could be brought to his attention
