Very small parking spaces, had a lot of trouble getting into the car as the car next to mine had been parked too close. The exit barrier did not open, me and other 5 drivers had to wait 10 minutes in the middle of the night until the assistance staff opened it for us.

Mid Stay 2

The booking service was clear and simple. The barrier recognition worked first time both on arrival and departure. Mid stay 2 car park appears to be the furthest walk to the departures. However this is only a short walk but the walking path tarmac could do with re-laying as it is very uneven and bumpy. Overall I would book this car park again
