Good service but both times we have used it they were 15 and 20 minutes late. Would be good if this was explained when pick up time is given. When confirmation of booking and pick up email is sent there is a reply button. Not sure why the reply option is there when it is not acknowledged or any response to this.

Extremely punctual. They arrive just a few minutes earlier than the scheduled time. If you were not there, they waited for a bit then they had to take off to pick up other customers. So make sure you're on time. They have a trailer for luggage so not matter how much luggage you have, it's not a problem.

Fantastic service. The driver was exemplary and provided an incredibly professional service (he was also lovely). He was waiting for us when we arrived at baggage collection. He carried our baggage and loaded it into the trailer. The van was equipped with good quality forward and rearward facing car seats as requested. Upon arrival at our hotel he unloaded our luggage and carried it into the hotel reception. Thank you Exemplar Coaches and Limousines - you live up to your name
