My Story – Last week 3 ladies, each with 1 piece of luggage took a cab from the Blakemore Hotel (Leinster Gardens) to Paddington , where 1 person was dropped off & 2 then travelled to the Mayfair Holiday Inn Hotel (Berkeley Street).
We were shocked at the fare £25!!!
The cab was not a black cab, it was a gray van (we now think it was a private cab.) The hotel called for the cab and we were picked up at the steps of the hotel. There was no meter inside the cab and no fare information was given. We had our doubts but since the hotel called the cab we thought it was ok.
Concierge at the Mayfair Holiday Inn said we paid too much. Were we taken??
