Very pleased, good value and bus service was excellent. The only thing I could say would improve it, would be location details of where your car is parked. For example an area and a row. Having said that we had no trouble, but I felt it was more luck than judgement.

Mid Stay 1

This is the 2nd time I have returned from holiday and when I went to leave the car park , I was sitting there waiting for the barrister yo open , again it said that I should pay £15 last time it was £65!! I pressed for assistance and was told by the lady that I could not get out because there may have been a bit of dirt on between my registration number, or the way I approached the barrier. Then said she would open the barrier after several minutes waiting. I waited and she did not open the barrier!!! I pressed for assistance again and explained that I had Prepaid and was still waiting to get out the car park , the lady said she would open the barrier, but then did not. He persisted to ask me for the booking number , even though I gave him my name!! He then said he couldn’t find me on the system. Then proceeded to refer to a reservation dating back to May !! Really we are in July!! Again I waited until he found the booking and I was able to leave 10-15 mins after!! Why on earth do you have registration recognition when it neither recognizes my entry or when I want to leave !!!!! And then staff who say that perhaps it’s the way I approach the barrier , REALLY!!! Get your act together please! If an elderly person or a disabled person parked there this would be unacceptable and the machine request money after prepaying is unacceptable as they , like I may think they have to pay again.
