Cardiff Long Stay Supersaver

The reason i have given a 4 star rating is the fact that we could not get out of the car park as it was asking for more money and barrier would not go up. It put about 15 to 20 mins on to our travel time. We cane across a car park attendant who got us out! Otherwise excellent

Highwayman Security Park

Extremely efficient and professional service!! Within minutes of arriving at the car park our luggage had been loaded on to a mini bus and we were on our way to the airport. On our return there was a mini bus waiting for us and the driver was very helpful to all the passengers with their luggage and we were back in the car park within minutes - the driver even parking close to our cars. My only regret is that I had not made a reservation in the Highway Grill House for our return. We decided when we got back to the car park to go the grill to try and get a table but it was extremely busy and as it was almost 9.00 pm we could not get a table but the meals looked lovely!! We were told by one of the diners that the food was "absolutely fantastic, well cooked and plenty of it" - will definitely be making a reservation the next time we use the Highwayman Security Park!!

The paperwork told me to collect a ticket and get it validated on return, in reality the barrier just opens for you, be nice if you were told this on the paperwork.

Everything is so simple,you drive up park your car book in,simple,helpful and courteous drivers deliver you and your luggage to the airport, it is a good simple system, the only drawback is that on your return they park a long way from arrivals, and then there are step to negotiate,not easy with luggage and or disability.

Always use the highway man when flying from Cardif,and they are and efficient service with peace of mind knowing your car will be looked after. Hate the windy road on last part of route to that Highwayman but guess not much you can do about that, still best car park around.
