PETE was brilliant, really great at responding to questions on e-mail & phone. The motorhome (Barney) was great. They were really flexible in the collection and return of Barney, they spent all the time needed to explain the home to us .The home was really clean, smelt lovely. And had everything you could need.He was really supportive throughout our trip, offering advice whenever needed, and even offered to come meet us when we had an issue.Great company, would highly recommend, and we look forward to booking again.

Had a great holiday and Peter explained everything to us before we left.Slight issue arose and Peter was more than fair with us regarding what had happened.Would recommend to anybody and use them again in the future.

We have just finished hiring 3 out of 4 of Pete's vans.We are a group of 9 friends who follow Wales home and away and due to Covid had our trips to Azerbaijan and Rome cancelled. We instead decided on a tour of Wales in campervans in hope of repeating our trip to France in 2016.We found this company online, and from start to finish Pete was absolutely fantastic to deal with.We had previously been stung in 2016 with another company who took our £1250 deposit off us for a rubber seal breaking on a window we had never opened, so as you can imagine we were overly cautious on this trip.Unfortunately however, accidents do happen and I unfortunately reversed one of the vans into a small fence when trying to park, thus damaging the bumper. Pete had said if anything happened to let him know straight away. I was expecting the worst but Pete was unbelievably understanding and helpful with the situation advising how to secure the bumper for the rest of the trip.On our journey home one of my friends accidentally broke one of the head rests on their van, panic set it once again. I messaged Pete and once again he was very understanding and helpful with the situation. When we got back he took a look at both bits of damage, explained the headrest was an easy fix and he wouldn't be charging us and that he would try to sort the bumper for as cheap as he could. He called me later that day to say he had found one on ebay and would fit it himself for nothing. We were over the moon as we were expecting a huge bill. He took the small amount out of our deposit and the rest was sent back to us.The vans themselves are also a step up in comparison to other companies we have used, plates, mugs, cutlery and cleaning equipment are all provided and when we first arrived at Petes all the vans were immaculate.The 4 berth van in particular is out of this world with the white leather furnishings and dark oak finish.Pete and his wife are genuine people running an amazing business that you can see they have a passion for.I would absolutely one hundred percent recommend Hire a Hymer to anyone looking to rent a campervan.There's not many genuine people left in the world but Pete is one of them.Enjoy the beers we left Pete, they're deserved mate and apologies once again for the work we caused you!

I would say Pete is the best option for motorhome hire there is. Absolute lovely camper, great guidance and instructions and at the end of the phone if there was any issues.Slight issue arose and Pete was more than fair with us regarding what had happened.Would recommend to anybody and will definitely be returning

Hired twice from these guys, Peter is a legend, extremely helpful on both occasions. The vans are brilliant and well prepared, coming with everything you need for a fantastic trip. Rock solid and reliable.Have recommend to friends and family and would certainly use again in the future.The vans have plenty of character and are great fun.Very comfortable, providing a great night's sleep and more than capable on the road.Your given a full run down of the vans on pick up and Peter is more than happy to answer questions on the phone if you need during your travels.We we're given a free upgrade as one of the two vans we booked was involved in an accident and although just repaired Peter wanted to double check everything before renting it out.Absolute brilliant service, these guys go above and beyond. Many thanks for a great trip and many brilliant memories.

Very comfortable

We had a lot of fun travelling in Lisa, she is a classic Hymer and so she is very comfortable, the facilities were excellent, there is no substitute for this level of quality even as mature as Lisa is. We would hire a classic motor home from you again and we would definitely recommend Hire a Hymer to our friends. On the plus side we like to feedback the following … Comfortable beds and lounge, Great van layout, Kept very warm and cosy, Good sound system with aux input for iPad etc, Excellent TV setup with a satellite signal being attained at every stop, Kitchen facilities, pots and pans, tea, coffee, sugar – everything and more!


Scottish Highlands

Thank you John and Peter. We (that is Georgia, Nick and our dog Rosie) have just returned from a great two weeks touring the Scottish Highlands – only made possible by ‘Maggie’. No temperature was too cold – no road too narrow and no distance was too great! ‘Maggie’ performed brilliantly from the time John handed her over to us until the somewhat sad time we handed her back two weeks later. The space inside the van was great for the two of us plus the dog, with the heating, cooking and washing facilities being more than suitable – we were never cold and cooked most of our food in the van with no problems. Being lefthand drive, wider and longer than our old VW camper and much heavier, I’d anticipated some problems driving the single track roads in the north-west of Scotland – I shouldn’t have worried, the odd – “OVER” – from Georgia was the worst thing that happened! We travelled over 1500 miles from Ross on Wye and back – via Glencoe – Loch Ness – Achtilibuie on the northwest coast of Scotland – Glemore in the Cairngorms and many miles on the M6 and M74. During all these miles ‘Maggie’ didn’t let us down once. We’d recommend Hire A Hymer to anybody – THANKS AGAIN


Great, just what we needed.

Thanks for a great weekend in “Herb”! A pleasant change from trying to sleep on a beanbag in the pit garage at Britcar 24hr! Woke up feeling relaxed and refreshed followed by a hot shower and a cup of tea. What more could anyone ask for???


Fun family break out on the road

As motor home novices we were quite apprehensive about taking to the open road this weekend. However, after the comprehensive briefing and confidence building we felt ready and in reality you were right after 5 minutes ‘you get it’. Great motor home with everything you need for a fun family break out on the road.


Brilliant holiday

From beginning to end, the process of booking, collecting, holidaying and returning our Hymer (Lisa) was seamless, with such friendly helpful service from all at Hire a Hymer. Lisa served us brilliantly on our trip to Scotland; she was cosy, reliable and very well received by Motorhome officiandoes! Those in the know recognised her as excellent quality, and after 2 weeks we knew they were right. She was easy to drive, easy to park, spacious and very well equipped inside and out, right down to tea and coffee and herbs! Although a little worried about the sleeping arrangements above the seats, we found the bed really comfy and large enough! And although the bathroom appears on the petite side, it was a lovely shower , and the toilet was easy to ‘maintain’ (by the hubbie). All in all it was a brilliant holiday, and one we would not hesitate to recommend.


A great way to see the West of Scotland

We arranged to hire the Hymer from Peter of Hireahymer and the whole process was very straight forward and we were able to collect the Hymer early than expected. This was our first time in a motorhome and what an experience. We decided to hire a Motorhome because it allowed us the freedom to go and do whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted and most importantly we were able to take our two small dogs rather than put them in kennels. We planned to travel to the west coast of Scotland and the highlands via a visit to a couple of friends on the way. Having the Hymer was great because it meant that we were able to visit our friends and not worry about where the dogs were going to stay and without too much intrusion on our friends. To cut a long story short we travelled to the Isle of Skye with various stops on the way which were only possible because we were in the Hymer and driving around we saw plenty of beautiful scenery en route.


Charity cycle ride

Many thanks for the use of the Hymer for our recent Hadrians cycle challenge for Help for Heroes. 12 of us cycled 190 miles on 1st and 2nd September 2012 (few more than planned) from Ravenglass to Tynemouth. We are well on the way to hopefully raising £4,000.00 for this charity.


Loved every minute of it

We started our trip flying into London. Peter was kind enough to pick us up from the National express bus stop in Northampton. Lisa was all set and ready to go and filled with extras and surprises. She handled great even in Peak and Lake district and was indeed very good on fuel. Actually she uses less diesel than my Nissan Micra… !?! I don’t understand. We drove nearly thousand miles and loved every minute of it. Rain or sun, Lisa gets you through anything. A big thank you to Pete for his extra help and that extra help which is much appreciated. Good luck to this lovely business.


Cracking trip

Just want to echo what Brendan said below. Had a cracking time with “Lisa.” Very easy to drive, Peter was very welcoming and helpful and it’s a lot more comfortable than camping!!! Am plotting a trip to Scotland as I type….

Hired the 6 berth over the jubilee weekend. Went back to a warm motorhome on the sunday, despite getting soaked through. We were the only motorhome to drive straight off the camping field, all the rest had to get towed out of the mud. Will definitely be hiring this again. Great friendly service.
