I've used the 'Airport' service between LGW and LHR - it was a night bus (0200 departure from LGW!). It was comfy enough for the short journey, though much longer and it would have become cramped as there is very little legroom.

I took the Glasgow-Blackpool-Glasgow service with a change in Preston last year. It wasn't too bad on the outbound as it wasn't so busy, the return however was crowded and much less pleasant.....It was a learning experience and not sure if I'd do it again.

Anyway I dit a London Stansted - Taunton tour which was horrible. Little to none legroom for someone who is 6'4" and the toilet...
It was cramped and smelly.... Never used them again. First on this route is much better although they are crap as well on most routes
There is one problem with airbus. Though their products are engineering marvels they lack passion, completely.

I took a National Express bus from London to Bath and back twice and must say that I wasn't impressed by them. For a guy of my size (186cm / 6'1) it got a little cramped after a while. The buses are also quite reliant on traffic and can therefore also be delayed quite a bit. One thing's for sure, you can't beat them on price.

I can't really say there is any service on the coach. You get on the coach, the drivers take a couple of stops at service stations, they drop you off. That's it really. I've taken the coach to LGW 8 years ago, and it took 9 hours, and I vowed I would never do it again. But I got the coach to the South Coast last December, changing in London, and it took about 12 hours. It wasn't too bad, but would have preferred to fly.
