Short Stay 3

Great Service, easy to enter with the vehicle registration check. The car park is nice and close to the departure lounge. It appears to be well maintained and secure as my car is completely fine! 10/10

Short Stay 3

Very impressed by the ease of parking. Number plate recognition worked perfectly on entry/exit from the car park. Sat nav coordinates on the booking confirmation email took us straight to the car park. Only a short walk to the departure lounge. Would definitely use again.

Jet Parks 1

We thought the car parking was very good, we didn't have any problems, but the car in front of us did, which had a long wait before anyone attended to his call. As there was only one entrance this caused us to be delayed and subsequent cars behind, one of which kept moaning at us! I think a highlighted remind to remember where you have parked your car might help too. We wrote ours down, so didn't have a problem, but could imagine two weeks layer having to wander all around looking for your car. Perhaps a tad expensive for a car park so far away, but bus service was regular and very good.
