    Took a Carmiles cab from Hastings to Northiam Great Dixter House and Gardens. £19. Rang for return cab and was told that it would cost £24.99 including a booking fee. Then told I had to pay with my mob phone. Could not as I dont have a money system on my phone. Spent an hour trying to find another can company with no success. Finally nice lady at reception at Gt Dixter offered to pay Carmiles with her system and we gave her cash refund. Ih 45 mins waiting for me and my friend both in our 70s. As I have used Carmiles every week for ten years from my home in Hastings (as I explained to their man on their phone) this seems WRONG. Driver when he arrived was charming.

    Appalling. Will never use again. Book one three hours in advance to get me home from work, three times in a row the taxi was twenty minutes late!!! Had to repeatedly call, and was repeatedly told a car was only a couple of minutes away. Only excuse given was that they are busy, not the reason the drivers gave me, if so busy then why accept the booking!!! Absolute abomination of a service.

    I will not be using this company again.Ordered a taxi from them and waited half an hour.I called again and was told that the taxi had turned up and waited for me but I was not there.I was told that they had waited at another entrance,there is only one entrance for taxis unless they have a pass for the barriers.I was then told I need to re order a taxi and wait another 30 minutes.General attitude from them that they could not have cared less.Totally disgusted.

    Live around the corner from them, used them almost every day for a year and was very happy with their service. Lately they have turned up late several times, then completely failed to show up for an important appointment. Dispatch was unhelpful and unapologetic, so I'll now be using their competitor. Based on other recent complaints on here, it looks like they need to get their act together.

    I have been using this firm on and off for 6 years since moving down here and no problems whatsoever. Nice switch operatives and nice drivers. Truthful too, so if they tell me there's a no availability they don't pretend otherwise and my transport always arrives in good time.

    I have been using this company regularly for about six years now. On average at least three times a week as I have a disabled child. Recently just one of their telephone staff has decided that she will not accept calls from children. I am phone phobic. This was explained to the woman. She knew my son had been ordering the taxi for years, she knew my address off by heart. Whilst I do appreciate children play pranks, she knew my son was genuine. I've had no problems with any other member of staff. I feel she has abused my mental health disability. Shown no respect for my loyalty. Now she has cost them. I will not use this company ever again. Should contact the newspapers really. Totally disgusted.

    If I could give no stars I would. Awful, awful company. The drivers will deliberately go the long way round to clock up more money. They start the meter running at £3.50 before you've even got in the car. They double park in my road so you can't get past, I get cut up by them on a daily basis and one guy sits in his his car, radio full blast and revs the engine at 6am in the morning for 20 minutes before driving away. I refuse you use their "service".

    I wish i could select no stars. Absolutely awful experience with Carmiles taxi 'service', and i use the word service with a lack of meaning as none is provided. I requested a taxi to take me to work hours in advance. When the taxi failed to arrive within 10 minutes of requested time, I called and was abruptly informed that the job would now be 'put out', with another 8-12 minute wait. No apology or regret. People request taxis at particular times for a reason. Subsequently i was late for work.

    Absolutely awful, I have used this company around five times a week over last eight years but lately it has been a very poor service. Last week and tonight I booked a taxi in advance. Got a call back so went straight outside within 3 minutes. Saw the taxi drive away but we had twenty steps to go down. Phoned them to ask for it to come back however the controller was extremely rude and argumentative saying there had been two call backs and they waited five minutes, completely refused to accept that there was only one call back and only 3 minutes wait. Refused to send one back and told me should have been waiting outside I was a lone female at 12.30 am and awful weather, tried to explain this but he put the phone down on me. Last week kept getting call backs but taxi was not outside, phoned and seems the driver was lost, I gave directions but controller would not listen, rude, aggressive and completely no customer service. I certainly will not use them again and neither will my company.

    Absolute terrible service on New Years Day! I phoned way ahead and booked a taxi for 01.30. They said yep we have a busy evening so it would be between 01.30 and 01.40 so on New Years morning I get a call telling me my taxi is on its way. We say goodbye to our friends and put our shoes and coats on. As we get outside I see the taxi driving off. So I phone carmiles to say that the driver has abandoned us. The guy on the phone is shouting its your fault mate he has been waiting for 9 minutes I simply explain well phones time stamp calls in and out and basically we had 3 minutes between a call to say the taxi was on its way to when it drove off. No help, so rude and 45 minute wait at a minimum for another taxi. Understand its a busy time for them but a little customer service wouldnt hurt!

    We used this company for the first time to get us home from our new year's celebration and will definitely never be using them again. The cab was booked more than a week in advance. We were asked to pay the full amount of £55 in advance as the pick up was out of town. I went to the office and paid in cash and got a receipt with all the pick up details on it. We were waiting outside around 10 minutes before pick up time which should have been 00.45. When the car had still not arrived at 1 am I gave them a call and was immediately told that they had been and gone because no body was there. This is obviously their standard tactic. I pointed out that we were outside well in advance and that the fare was pre-paid and I had the receipt with me. I was then told that the computer showed the payment was still pending and there was nothing more they could do. Before I could complain further the call was disconnected. They eventually agreed to send a cab out an hour later than it should have been

    We switched to these guys after being let down horrendously by another leading local name lately. All was well for half a dozen journeys or so, and then three times we were lied to about where our taxi was. Clearly it wasn't where it was meant to be and on all occasions, turned up 15 minutes later. On one occasion, ironically, it was early; when I went outside to meet it (I hadn't seen the text saying he was arriving), he'd driven off and they had to order me another one. When I called up, they said: 'Our drivers have got better things to do than wait for customers.' Like what?

    Very rude service! They said to wait for 45 minutes and they arrived after 106minutes. When we reported to their phone, they dont even apologize, ask you for 100quid if they prove you're not waiting for 15 minutes. The hell. Rude service Wont even offer you an apology. Dont inform you why cab is late. 1 star but I wont even give them any honestly

    Atrocious. No control over their drivers and lord help you if you have a problem as they won't listen. Sadly they have pretty much a monopoly on the town having bought out almost all of the other forms. Avoid if you can by going to another more reputable firm

    I do use them . But most of drivers nice at the same time so many drivers grumpy misuse the root for longer root for. Sake of 20 extra . & don't talk to their customers. Feel abit uncomfortable. But I am a taxi driver I can understand it . Might had a bad day .

    I never write reviews, but thought this firm are brilliant, first time I used them and being bank holiday weekend, we was told up to 30 min wait which was good, but they turn up in 10 min, coming home told up to 15 min wait but they turn up in 5 min. Lovely drivers as well. Would definitely use again.
