    Normally an exceptionally reliable operator.

    Driver on today’s 17:00 X1 came nowhere near that standard. Pulls onto the stand in Brynmawr at 17:00, by which time five passengers waiting for this service had walked to the next stand for the Stagecoach X15.

    When he dropped off his passengers, the last person to alight was obviously a friend of his, as they stood talking for about five minutes (at which point he was already late). Then he got off the bus and continued his conversation whilst rolling and then smoking, a cigarette.

    At the ASDA roundabout, he slammed on his brakes so that my bags spilled all over the floor. I accept that the brakes can be fierce on Enviro type vehicles, but part of the skill of driving is to know your vehicle.

    Finally, he stopped just before the Cwmcelyn turn off to send a text.

    Please could Terry Wybern (if he hasn’t retired as Inspector) have a friendly chat with the guy and bring him up to speed on how the job SHOULD be done.

    I’ve rated you as a five based on long term overall experience of your services. At a time when Stagecoach are cutting back their services (Evening X15 cut to two hourly below Abertillery and X22 taken off) there is a gap in the market that Anslows can fill, particularly given the differential in fare structure.

    I use Phil Anslow coaches with work to hire their coaches for day trips out and I recently went on a day trip organised by Phil Anslow coaches to Harry Potter Studio and on every occasion the drivers have been very friendly, kept us informed of any traffic problems along the way and made the day a whole lot better with their friendly chats. Would highly recommend Phil Anslow Coaches.

    Great trip to Gloucester yesterday – the bus arrived on time and was even decorated for Christmas! Nick was a very professional, friendly driver who got us there and back safely and even gave us a little toot ‘goodbye’ as we got off the bus! Excellent value for money and wouldn’t hesitate to book another trip with you!

    I just want to say Thank you. I am so humbled to know that yesterday at 12:20 my 85 year old gran was waiting in Blaenavon high street, for the forgeside bus and she was just telling me that a young driver came off the bus down the street to help my gran carry her bags and help her on the bus.

    She told me that never in the whole time she has lived in Blaenavon that a young lad has never gone out of there way for her, like this guy did.

    She wanted me to post this so hopefully that young lad can know how greatfull she is.

    So thank you. ������

  • What a lovely change to get a bus and be greeted with a smile, absolutely lovely service. No rush in the driver waited for everyone to be seated before pulling off, unlike other diver leaving you to be jolted into the seat. Was kind and even saw him offer a woman with a cough a bottle of water. Took his time and was actually aware he had customer in the back unlike other busses I’ve been on. This was today on the 63 from usk to Pontypool around 1:30, what a lovely change, keep It up!�

  • We used Phil Anslow Coaches for our wedding at Glanusk Estate on the 18th July. From the get go they were so helpful and continued to be so right through the planning stages. We wanted shuttles coaches to get our guests to and from the wedding. Not only did they suggest routes but they went and recce’d each and every hotel/ B&B that our guests were staying in. In the end we came up with a really great schedule and they really listened to what our requirements were. Plus the final cost was very reasonable and worked well with our budget.
    On the day itself I had nothing but compliments from all the guests on how efficient and helpful the coaches and the drivers were. And all our guests arrived on time and were able to leave on the numerous scheduled coach journeys at the end of the night.

    We would very happily recommend them for any event and can’t thank them enough for their amazing service.

    Thank you Phil and Sue for all your help and we wish you all the best for the future!

    The very best

    I recently hired a coach to take a group of senior citizens to Weston super mare. They have not stopped talking about how easy it was to get on the coach (the steps are lower and not so steep) and how comfortable it was too. I have now hired a coach for four more trips for them.
    Have also gone on day trips with a friend and cannot fault this company. In addition the drivers I have met on these trips are brilliant. Would recommend Phil Anslow to anyone.

  • I catch the x1 service to Work every day I spend £20 a week on the bus for a weekly ticket and I have to say it’s an absolute pleasure to do so. I have never once had a bad experience on your buses most of your drivers are absolutely brilliant on more than one occasion I’ve witnessed them go out of there way to please the customers like only today one of your drivers seen a little old lady rushing and panicking with a Zimmer frame because she wasn’t at the bus stop instead of Just driving past like stagecoach would he stopped right by her asked her if she needed help getting onto the bus, told her to sit down and scan her pass when she got off and didn’t pull off until she sat down I see this all the time from most of your drivers. Most of them don’t get the credit they deserve would never go back to catching stagecoach buses �

  • 5 star ratingHighest Standards I’ve used this company multiple times for private coach hire. The drivers have always been polite and well dressed.

    The use of hands free devices has always been well received as it has allowed them to have the most up to date travel information like road closures etc so that the most time efficient journey could be achieved. This is obviously a preferred method rather than the drivers having to use their phones whilst driving and being distracted from their jobs.

    One of our party also left their wallet on the coach and we were able to contact the driver to get it back before he got back to the garage.

    I would recommend this company. They have always gone above and beyond and their spelling is immaculate.

    We used Phil Anslow on Saturday to take our cwmbran u9s to judgement day in Cardiff. My wife had to change the bus short notice because of a few cancellations. Now normally this would of caused a fuss with other companies but phil anslow simple and politely changes it to a smaller bus. The driver was a very happy and jovial person which made the short trip a happy one and when we realised the roads were all closed off after the game we had a bit of a panic especially with 15 or so kids but the driver actually walked to find us amongst all the chaos of a rugby day in Cardiff. i tip my had to the driver and phil anslow. It’s a shame not all companies were run like this! Thank you.
