2022 Testimonials

I had a brilliant trip with Stuart Hall Cycling. From arrival to departure everything was organised for me. I stayed in the same hotel as the Stuart Hall crew which was amazing, not only did I throughly enjoy the cycling but also enjoyed the breakfast and lunch and dinner with the guys. The guides Stuart, Marcus, Ben, Rob and Tiago were brillaint ensuring that everybody was comfortable and noone left behind. Would highly recommend and not just because of the very reasonable prices. You are guaranteed a good holiday with these guys."

I was initially nervous about going away on a cycling holiday to Mallorca by myself. I doubted my ability to keep up with the group. The thought of eating alone in a crowded restaurant filled me with dread and I almost backed out at the last minute. However I put my big girl pants on and sucked it up. So glad that I did. I had the most fantastic time with Stuart Hall Cycling . Most of the other people were also solo cyclists and half the group were women. The guides Ben, Tiago and Marcus made me feel welcome. There were group meets in the bar, we sat together for meals. The cycling was superb and I kept up. I made new friends and had such a great time I'm going back in April.

I spent 5 AMAZING days in Majorca cycling with Stuart Hall. I can't recommend them enough! I had the best time ever. Stuart and Helen are very attentive "hosts". The hotel near Palma was really nice. The bike rented from Stuart was in fantastic condition and was a pleasure to ride. And what to say about the outstanding guides: Ben, Marcus and Tiago. They aren't just incredible riders with great knowledge of the roads but they are super personable, easy to talk to and always up for a laugh. I really did not want to come back to the UK. I am certainly considering coming back for more. Thank you to Stuart Hall Cycling for the amazing experience I had. Majorca is a cycling paradise!!

This was our second trip with Stuart Hall Cycling Holidays in the past 12 months and it was another fantastic experience, fulfilling all of our expectations. In no particular order, the transfers from & the return to Palma airport were slick, the hotel was perfect with comfortable large rooms. The hotel food was fresh, plentiful & tasty. There was a great bar area at the hotel to chill post ride. Most importantly, on the cycling side, the choice of routes catered for all abilities, we enjoyed the company & had complete confidence in the group leaders. The weather was fantastic. If you are considering a cycling holiday in Majorca we suggest you have look at what Stuart Hall Cycling Holidays have to offer.
Alan & Carole, Mallorca Oct 2022
Dear Stuart / Helen, Thank you again for a wonderful week. Having got soaked today, I wish I was still there! Everything was perfect and to meet up with friends who I met in April and to meet new friends – fantastic week The rides were well organised and varied, two days with Marcus and Tiago was enough! Shame we only had two days with Wayne as he is a legend. It wouldn’t be the same without him. Look forward in seeing you and the team again in April Best wishes Simon
Simon, Mallorca Oct 2022

Just finished a fantastic week of cycling with Stuart and the crew. Would defo recommend it to anyone and will defo be back next year. Travelled on my own and was looked after from start to finish and made to feel very welcome by all. A special mention to Stuart for sorting all the arrangements and to Rob and Brendan and the rest of the guides for really going the extra mile to look after everyone and have the craic at the same time. Excellent!! Bobby
Bobby, Mallorca Oct 2022
Hi Helen So often people only email to complain so here is just a quick email to say how great it was last week in Mallorca. The rides were well planned and superbly managed by the ride leaders. Of note both Wayne and Rob managed groups with split abilities so well it was hard to tell who was fast or slow. Both Wayne and Rob are a credit to your business. Wishing you all the success for the future Dale Blake
Dale, Mallorca Oct 2022
Hello Stuart, Helen and Jenny Another wonderful few days cycling with SH - thank you! As we knew the drill (and with no Covid paperwork and faff), we found everything pleasantly familiar and easy. Mars Senses was it’s usual lovely self - service, food and helpful staff. This year’s SH boys were really great. Special mention Ben, Roy and Brendan who looked after us on a ‘medium’ ride with a large group of [club] riders who were determined to push the pace. Your chaps ensured we didn’t drop off the back and managed a few tricky characters really well. We hope to return again next year…..just need to get it authorised by our families 😉 Thanks to you for your clear communication, providing decent bikes and slick airport transfers. Fingers crossed, we’ll see you in 2023. Have a great season! Warm regards,
Katherine & Liz, Mallorca Oct 2023
Hi Jenny I’ve just returned from a trip with you company and would like to comment on a few things. From being picked up at the airport to being dropped back at the airport the experience was first class Hotel absolutely first class includes service food cleanliness Rides again first class but I would like to single out Neil,arron,Brenden and Wayne, these four guys were fantastic and made my experience even more enjoyable Please show this email to your staff as they should be extremely proud of how they conduct themselves and most importantly you should be proud of them In my work any company is only as good as it’s staff
Lloyd, Mallorca Oct 2022
Thanks guys. Had a blast (again) in Mallorca. Special thanks to: Ben for expert pacing and good conversation all the way up ‘the pig’ and for riding until 6 to get the ride done. Geoff for looking after our pal Norman when he took ill at lunchtime and needed nursing home, some 30+ miles. The rides out with Brendon and Rob are some of the best I’ve enjoyed in Mallorca. Great craic and expert leadership. Even on my last day Brendon and Geoff lead us up Sa Calobra and back. I finished at 4 and was on the bus to the airport at 5. A great end to a great week. 487 miles and 28,400 ft of climbing in a week!! Overall, everything was spot on. The Team were great. Rides well organised and the hotel very comfy. (Hopefully) I’ll be back next September.
Martin, Mallorca Sept 2022
I’d just like to take this opportunity to say how great the cycling holiday I had was. A good set of riders and leaders and the whole setup just was spot on, thanks Stuart for a brilliant time and I can’t wait to go next year
Stephen, Mallorca Sept 2022
Had a fantastic week in Majorca with Stuart Hall holidays. As a single traveller I can’t complain, from start to finish service and support couldn’t have been better, all the guides were super supportive and very conscious of everyone’s enjoyment and safety. Rides were well organised, riding through beautiful quiet roads of Majorca at a good pace with excellent coffee / lunch stops Off the bikes staff were just as engaging and encouraging, it was great to see Stuart and all guides show real interest in guests, making sure it felt like a team effort, socialising and laughing making the week very enjoyable. If in doubt about booking, don’t be just book you won’t regret it! Already planning trips for next year
Michael, Mallorca Sept 2022
Thank you to Stuart Hall, Rob, Ben, Roy and the whole Team. What a memorable week we have had and now understand why cyclists keep coming back .... just so hard to resist! Take care and ride safe
Tracy, Mallorca Sept 2022
Hi Jenny, Just back from the September Raid Pyrenees trip. Had a fantastic time and great adventure. Couldn’t fault the Stuart Hall set up. Excellent from start to finish. Easy booking, comprehensive pre ride information, charming French hotels and challenging cycling. Felt safe and supported throughout. Great bunch of cyclists to ride with and new friends made. Just brilliant! Many thanks Jenny and off course thanks to Stuart, Ben and Ian.
Richard, Raid Pyrenees 2022
Just back from a fantastic week in the Pyrenees. A great route and a well-organised trip. Stuart and his team proved all the help and support you need in an unfussy way, enabling you to enjoy your time on the bike. The hotels and food were good and the routes were well-pitched, to be challenging yet achievable and enjoyable, with all our group getting supported whatever their pace. The Pyrenees themselves are awesome, unspoilt yet spectacular, with long climbs, some steep ones too, scenic peaks, quiet valleys and enjoyable descents. Highly recommended trip and a great company.
Anthony, Raid Pyrenees 2022
Just back from a fantastic week of cycling the Pyrenees from the Atlantic to Med. Many thanks to Stuart, Ben, Ian and the rest of the team at Stuart Hall Cycling. Everyone on the cycle tour were great and we had a lot of fun. Tourmalet was the highlight for me!! Greg
Greg, Raid Pyrenees 2022
Brilliant week, thank you everyone for making it very special. The support crew were fantastic, not sure Richard and I would have made it without Stuart’s bike expertise.We are already talking about our next challenge. Good luck everyone. Jean and Richard.

Mark, Raid Pyrenees 2022
We have ended our journey and before we all disappear in different directions - Canada, Sweden, Ireland and UK- and before this WhatsApp group closes I would like to say to you all what an amazing time I have had this week and it’s all down to you guys. (the climbs, views and descents may have something to do with it of course). The support and camaraderie between us has been inspiring. An experience never to forget and made possible by those amazing chaps Stuart, Ian and Ben who have been, quite frankly, the best. Must give thanks to my friend Adrian who, many months ago, suggested the ride - so happy he did. 👍🏻 One big happy family. Will miss you all. Take care. Anthony
Anthony, Raid Pyrenees 2022
This was a great trip for my first experience in the Alps! Stuart and the staff were very helpful and supportive through the whole experience. I was lucky enough to ride with a great group of people and had good experience on the bike and each day at meals and exploring in the small towns. Pushing myself on the big days added to the overall reward at the end!
Todd, Raid Alpine 2022
An unforgettable six days riding across the Pyrenees. Great route, great company and a big thanks to Ben and Ian for looking after us so well. And also to Jenny for handling the logistics so well prior to the trip. Ben
Ben, Raid Pyrenees 2022
Excellent trip riding the Stelvio, Gavia, and Mortirolo passes in Italy. Well organized both before and during the trip. Helen, Ian, and Aaron were lovely and our hotel was fantastic. Great lunch and dinner stops and nice hire bikes as well. Highly recommend; we will definitely be doing another trip in the future!
Stelvio 2022
That was an incredible first experience you gave me cycling in Europe. What a great 6 days,the transfers,the hotel,the loops,the climbs,the lunch stops,the support van,the road captains,the evening recovery meals. An absolute blast. THANK YOU.
Neville, Stelvio 2022
Fantastic week of cycling with the SH team. Special thanks to Simon who's straight talking and endless knowledge was shared in equal quantities! This is now definitely yearly event and maybe the 312 one year? Toby, Barrie and Jules
Toby, Mallorca May 2022
Hi All, Just to say thank you for another amazing trip with everyone & Stuart Hall Cycling. We stayed at Mar Senses this year and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Food was excellent and staff were outstanding, very friendly and efficient. The cycling is always awesome, sun and smooth roads! The ride leaders are friendly and navigate the many lanes with ease, always finding great café stops. Overall the organisation from booking to airport transfers and everything in between ran smoothly. Great trip, looking forward to next time. Thanks, Seona & Harry
Seona & Harry, Mallorca April 2022
Just want to say another BIG THANK YOU to Stuart and staff for another awesome bike vacation in Mallorca. My friends from Colorado were impressed and had a great time. Thanks Again.
Steve, Mallorca May 2022
Hi Jenny & Stuart, Just a short note to thank you for a fantastic week of cycling last week. Hotel was excellent , the cycling was excellent and the whole trip was excellent. The only complaint I have is it went way too fast 😊 Keep up the good work we will be back !! Take care
Fergus, Graeme & John, Mallorca May 2022
The trip, as always was great. I had the benefit of staying at Mar Senses for a week and then three weeks at Playa Mar, both pleasurable experiences. My room at Playa Mar was excellent. I appreciated being on the ground floor and to having the morning sun. The meals were fine and the staff cooperative. As for the SH crew, they were informative and courteous and the rides were varied and interesting. Altogether it was an excellent cycling holiday experience. I plan to return in October.
Harold, Mallorca April 2022
Booking with Stuart Hall last minute for the 312, great organisation, hotel, race numbers all ready - really took the nerves away for us all to enjoy the day - a challenging but beautiful 167 completed with smiles under blue skies ☀️☺️
Suzanne, Mallorca 312 2022
Just like to say a huge thanks all involved at Stuart Hall Cycling. We had a fantastic time during the Mallorca 312. Superb organisation, Hotel, people, food and weather ! The day before the event the organised ride out to spin the legs was just right. Great to ride the quiet local lanes and enjoyed the coffee stop under an Olive tree in typical Mallorca village, couldn’t fault it. We had a successful 312 ride and will definitely come back again. Thanks everyone.
Neil, Mallorca 312, 2022
Jenny A belated thank you from me. I’d entered the 2020 edition, which of course did not take place, so I had been waiting nearly 3 years to ride the event. It did not disappoint - it was fantastic. Your choice of hotel and its location was also spot on. I very much hope to be able to travel with you again next year, so please do include me on your mailing list when your 2023 packages go on sale. Thank you Best wishes David
David, Mallorca 312 2022

Perry, Mallorca April 2022
I'm home from my first cycling holiday with Stuart Hall Cycling in Mallorca. I had such a great time - Super riding, socialising, food and drink. Kept very well organised even with a little changeable weather conditions and the continually changing dynamic of different riders arriving and leaving. Loved the mix of different routes each day which allow you to cover different parts of the island. I'm currently booking my next trip - Thanks. Ed
Ed, April 2022
Hello Jenny Just a quick email to say thank you for all of your help and that of Stuart Hall’s for my Mallorca trip this year. Been a great first holiday to Mallorca with Stuart Hall. I will be looking to book again for 2023. Thank you Rob
Rob, April 2022
Just back from a six day cycling holiday with Stuart Hall in Mallorca. From start to finish, the professional approach of Stuart Hall and his team ensured that our entire party of 20 were excellently looked after in an non intrusive but professional manner. All the highlighted cycling trips proved to be well planned and immensely enjoyable taking in some of the islands breathtaking scenery. Would highly recommend Stuart Hall Cycling to those thinking of venturing on a cycling holiday either as a group or an individual. Also his choice of hotel for our stay The Mars Senses was ideal with great food and excellent staff. In the immortal words of the Terminator......we will be back. Tony
Tony, April 2022
Hi everyone, Just wanted to say thanks for another great trip. Everything worked perfectly (as ever) from being picked up at the airport to the time I got dropped off again to go home. Great guides, routes and cafe stops as usual and it felt great to be back with old friends again after what seems like forever (actually only 2 years) due to COVID restrictions. I'm already planning my next trip so should see you all again in October. Hasta pronto! Lou
Louise, April 2022
Hi Stuart & Team, It was our first time cycling in Majorca, have to say we thoroughly enjoyed evey bit of it, from the hotel, bike hire, guides, routes etc, couldn't find a fault. We certainly plan to be back again in April 2023. Regards Andrew
Andrew, April 2022
Hi Helen / Stuart, Just a quick thanks for giving both Tricia and I another fab cycling holiday. Big thanks to both Rob and Patrick for looking after us on our rides. Wishing you all the best for the season. Andy and Tricia.
Andy & Tricia, April 2022
If carlsberg did cycling holidays, this was it, hotel, facilities, location beside the beach, shops, restaurants food, staff, cycling guides, top class, looking forward to returning next year, highly recommend 👍 Kieran
Kieran, April 2022
Thanks - Helen - we are having a brilliant holiday thankyou. The team have been great and the hire bikes perfect. I certainly will recommend to my friends.
Stuart & Scott, Apr 2022
Hello, We had a fantastic time at The Mar Senses Hotel with Stuart Hall. All your team did everything they could to give us a great cycling holiday, it was so much fun. Great routes, ride leaders, they accommodated all abilities and provided us with great refreshment stops. The hire bikes were super as well. We will certainly be back. The only thing that could be improved on might be the dinner at the hotel, there was not always clear choices for vegetarians. Also the jacuzzi in the spa was a bit chilly. Everything else was great. Thank you so much. Cathy
Cathy, April 2022
Stuart Thank You and your really great staff for another memorable cycling and fun holiday. Super hotel, accommodation, food and challenging trips. We look forward to returning to you guys down in Pollenca in Spring 2023 DV. In the meantime,very Best Wishes. Gerard & Ursula
Gerrard & Ursula, April 2022
Thanks for another great week riding country lanes in search of cake (success!). Your knowledge of the local road and weather conditions is extraordinary and makes for a good time for all. Wayne, Garth and Simon also added their personality and experience. I will be back, and may bring my son with me next time! Feel free to post my comments. You provide exceptional value. Gracias!
Bob, April 2022
Just got back from a great 11 day trip to Palma with SH. Clear blue skies, empty roads, lots of route choices, great anecdotes from Stuart and not a pothole in sight! Thanks Stuart and Helen- see you in March
James, Jan 22
Hi Stuart and Jenny Sorry this message is so late but I wanted to say a big thank you for a fantastic week in March! It was my first time cycling abroad and despite the weather throwing some challenges, the riding was fantastic and routes certainly seemed to make the most of the weather we did have! Didn’t have to worry or even think about anything from arrival at Palma airport which was a blessing. The ride leaders and guides were a fantastic support and great fun also, and special thanks to Wayne and Aaron. The flight home was slightly painful after a few too many drinks (and shots!?!) in the Mar Senses bar on the final evening but everything made it back in one piece! Thanks again Lottie
Lottie, March 2022
Just a quick thank you ! Just to say great food, accommodation & our tour guide Wayne done a great job verry impressed, will definitely recommend, thanks, the two Micks & David
David, March 2022
Hi Stuart Just a quick line to say how much myself Dave & Mick enjoyed our 5 days with your company. I would like to single out Wayne our cycling guide who was very professional, diligent and whose humour kept the smile on our faces in very challenging weather conditions. I will definitely be booking another cycling break with your company in the future Kind regards Mick
Mick, March 2022
G'day Stuart I loved my time riding with you guys. The bike was great. The guides really good especially Wayne and Garth. Love Sa Calobra. Will spread the good word Down Under on Majorca and Stuart Hall.
Geraldine, March 2022
Just quick message... Stuart... thank you so much to you, Aaron and Rob for a brilliant week... see you hopefully in October... regards Angela
Angela, March 2022
Morning Jenny, just a quick note to say thank you to you all for our stay with you this week. Stuart was the perfect guide on the road ensuring we got to ride the many hidden quiet roads on the Island, we will be back to be expertly guided around the island again. Wishing you a great season ahead Regards Frances
Frances, March 2022
Brilliant few days break with Stuart Hall Cycling! Great hotel, great group rides with really good leaders!! Will be back for sure! Thanks! 🚴🏻‍♂️
James, March 2022
Can't recommend Stuart Hall Cycling enough - have now cycled north and south of Mallorca with them, routes are always well chosen and appropriate, guides are excellent and great company. The hotels they use are in excellent locations, comfortable and very friendly with all the facilities you'll need on a cycling holiday. Bike hire also top quality and good value. Given the way we've all had to live over the last few years their flexibility and ability to accommodate last minute changes is equally admirable
