Ilfracombe Taxis - Excellent Service
Save

Recently had a fantastic week's stay in Ilfracombe.

Wanted to recommend a local taxi service 'Ilfracombe Taxis' due to their excellent customer care. They picked 5 of us up from Barnstaple Train Station and didn't hesitate to help with our baggage which took the weight off our shoulders. On the journey our driver gave us lots if information on places to eat and visit which we found very useful during our week in Ilfracombe.

Had to recommend as the taxi drivers in our area are not very friendly or helpful so it was a refreshing change.

We recently attended a wedding at the Tunnels Beach in Ilfracombe and used Ilfracombe Taxis during our entire stay. The drivers bent over backwards to help us and recommended places to visit, eat, etc. Wanted to back up what Sue M had wrote as we used the service due to her review.

We will be coming back next year to visit Lundy and we will be booking them to pick us up from Tiverton Parkway Railway Station. The driver Greg told us this shaves an hour off the normal time it takes us to get to Barnstaple by Train, more time to spend in lovely Ilfracombe!

And they pop up at regular intervals to keep this in the forum.

There are other taxi firms in Ilfracombe http://www.mikestaxisilfracombe.co.uk/ sounds really efficient

this one made me smile http://ataxiilfracombe.com/ a company with a sense of humour

In fact there are a lot of taxis for a small place so spoilt for choice

http://tinyurl.com/m32tx26 Potential for a bit of negotiating here maybe

I do apologise for not spending my life on trip advisor. I spend enough time trawling thorough reviews and normally wouldn't bother with writing one as I have very little time on my hands. I actually registered to give recognition to a Town and a business that deserved it.

P.s I don't get away too often so I'm now worried I will upset the trip advisor police if i ever post again. If and when I decide to write my second review I shall try to contact you all first to see what's deemed appropriate?

Sue, your original post commending the firm is still there.

The objection was to the one off posts about the firm. There are many good & helpful taxi companies with excellent recommendations in Ilfracombe and the point was to make a balance.

It is good to know if that the gentleman was accomodating and helped ot make your holiday a good one.
