“On personal recommendation, we took the train from East Sussex to Swansea where Coach House gave us a really tailored review of their pianos both in the showroom and the workshop. We viewed several pianos and ended up purchasing a Steinway Boston upright which I am absolutely delighted with. My piano was delivered within a week of our visit and taken up our very narrow staircase whilst our old one was carried down. The three muscular delivery men said that if it had been 1" wider they would not have managed it! They were so practical. I cannot believe what a pleasure it has been to deal with Coach House who went out of their way to ensure that the piano was the right one for me”Peter – East Sussex
“Anybody can beat a price, no other piano supplier in the UK can attain to the high level of service one received from Coach House Pianos. It is very clear that all advice given had been substantiated and built-on throughout the 30+ years of their experience within the industry and you receive all this as an extra bonus on top of their guaranteed fairest price. Buying a piano was a journey in my experience and from my detailed research I would thoroughly recommend it is only worth going on this journey with Coach House.”Alan – Henley-On-Thames
“Exceptional service. I could not have wished for a better buying experience of my dream piano than what I received from Coach House Pianos - I truly felt valued as a customer. Fabulous showroom with many many pianos to try, very helpful staff, going the extra mile (or two!) to ensure a smooth transaction and a wonderful outcome. Highly recommend.”Dawn – Brixham

The selection of wonderful pianos was mouth-watering, the personal attention given to us by their staff second to none, in every way we were treated like royalty.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone seeking the instrument of their choice. Coach House Pianos is Special.” Patricia – Sussex
