Our Testimonials

Amazing day driving all over the Peak District Had our picnic which she provided by the river in Bakewell Clotted cream to jam radio 10:1 Amazing!!?!! Nothing was too much trouble for them Thanks for an awesome Road trip
We hired the mini out for 3 days and what can I say except what a beautiful car, me and the mrs both fell in love with it. The car was perfect for our wedding. She is well maintained and looked after by the owners, who are also some of the most nicest people you will ever meet, you can tell it’s not just a car to them, but their pride and joy. I really recommend to anyone who is thinking of hiring the mini, you will not be disappointed( only when you give it back and wishing you kept her longer)
Where to even start! We had the best time in Matilda in our road trip! We couldn’t have asked for better! Bex and Allan were so amazing right from the get go. From explaining everything about Matilda, showing us exactly how to drive her and what was what, right down to going through the whole route with us before we set off. They also sent us recommendations on places to visit and food etc, we really couldn’t have asked for more. This trip was a surprise birthday present for my husband and Bex helped to organise it all with me and he absolutely loved it. Not to mention how amazing the Christmas Hamper was aswell! We travelled up from south wales to experience the Derbyshire Dales in Matilda and it’s honestly the only way to do it! I’d highly recommend Retro Mini Hire, we had the best weekend! Couldn’t fault a thing!
This was amazing! Bex was lovely, she made every effort to make sure we felt special and enjoyed the day, including a vegan picnic. Matilda is stunning and wonderful to drive. This was a birthday present and I couldn't recommend it enough. Thank you for such a wonderful day.
Thank you so much Bex. Matilda was the real star of our son and daughter-in-law’s wedding. We followed them on the drive to the reception and it was great to see so many people waving and smiling at them. It truly made their day.
Fantastic! Booked a one day road trip for husband’s 40th. Wonderful day and Bex went above and beyond to make it special, even letting us change dates at the last minute due to an injury. Genuine 5 star service, thanks!
Many thanks for the use of your mini for our wedding day, I honestly didn’t expect the response it got from everyone and all the looks it got on the journey to the hotel! Everyone loves the car and thinks it’s amazing, it’s a real credit to you and also it drives and sounds absolutely amazing! All the younger kids that was at the wedding didn’t believe it was a real car, they all thought it was a toy car with it been so small compared to modern cars! They was all pretending to drive it and beeping the horn, thinking they was driving down to the Mac Donald’s drive through for a happy meal 😂 Everything from booking the car to the car been delivered was absolutely seamless and perfect, I cannot recommend Bex and the car enough for any occasion! Thank you once again from the now Mr and Mrs Bonney 😊
Nothing other than 5 stars! All of the reviews say similar things and I couldn't agree more. This isn't like booking something through an impersonal corporate gift buying site where you get a gift voucher to print off. The attention to detail from Bex is so refreshing to see, from the initial enquiry to collecting the car, the whole experience was first class! The Mini itself is very well maintained and drives great. We covered just under 100 miles in the Peak District and didn't want to give it back. A great gift, we would highly recommend this company and the experience of retro mini hire. Look no further! Keep up the great work Bex, your energy you put in to your business makes all the difference and is clear to see.
We booked the weekend Mini hire with Retro Mini Hire and what an absolute amazing experience from start to finish. We had the most amazing, relaxed weekend driving around the Peak District. Stopping where we wanted to and taking in the sights. Communication was great from beginning, at the time of booking, to the moment we returned the car. Such friendly service. The picnic hamper and retro mini playlist were also an added bonus too!
What can I say. From the moment I booked this trip I have been impressed with the hard work done by Bex & Alan today bring the experience to us. We chose a trip in the peak District, unfortunately the weather wasn't our friend but that took nothing away from the day. Matilda is a great car, I struggled to get used to Her (my fault not the car!). It's a Mini Cooper of course & I'm no giant not am I mini. Matilda is well kept & a real pleasure to be trusted with somthing special to Bex & Alan. We loved the chance to see places we've never been & recommend the John Mellor museum en route, the retro sweet hamper went down well too. Anyway suffice to say I would jump at the chance to do it again, just less pies in the weeks before the trip. Keep up the great work guys, hopefully see you in November, but We'll see your socials regularly. Ta Ta for now.

``We Cannot Rate Retro Mini Hire highly Enough``

Originally bought for us as a gift voucher, we had mixed expectations but we’re blown away but the experience. Matilda the Mini is in immaculate condition and we loved being able to go off on a self drive adventure through the most beautiful surroundings. We were provided with a range of themed routes to choose from, with lots of thought and attention to detail to incorpate some great local spots to stop for coffee, ice cream and recommended photo opportunities. Bex and her family gave us the warmest welcome and we experienced great communication throughout the planning and booking process. I would (and already have!) highly recommend Reto Mini Hire and we’ll absolutely have to book the full day experience next time.” – Lisa and Joe

Kirsty & Stuart

``My husband surprised me for my birthday by having a day driving Matilda a gorgeous vintage Mini Cooper.``

What a day!! We had a fantastic picnic packed in the back packed in beautiful wicker baskets and drove to Chatsworth House through the beautiful countryside to enjoy it. I can honestly say it’s been the best birthday present ever, the attention to detail on every part of the experience is faultless from the maps to the personal playlist playing when you start the engine. Thank you so, so much for making my birthday one to remember.” – Kirsty and Stuart

Leah & Karen

“Absolutely loved my Mini day out!``

Retro Mini Hire gave us a map of the route together with recommended places to stop along the way. We stopped to enjoy the freshly made cream tea hamper basket that we purchased from them, RMH literally crossed all the t’s and dotted all the i’s in their presentation! It’s all about the fine details and they didn’t miss a thing! I had the best time and can’t wait to drive this outstanding and extremely well cared for Mini again soon! Definitely a memory I look back on with BIG smiles!” – Leah and Karen
