Rather grumpy guy to welcome us at 5.00am. He became the source of amusement for the other passengers waiting for the transfer bus. I dropped my car off at 5.00am in an immaculate condition and when collected later that day it appeared to have been hosed down with dirty water and the windscreen was very greasy.

Despite being extremely busy with holiday makers the service was still efficient and fast. As a tired traveller that meant a lot

I use this service all the time and I know when I arrive back there will be no disappointments. Correct again, Thanks for the great service!

Even having parked here previously, it is notoriously difficult to locate as there are very few signs and it is tucked away behind industrial buildings. Both of my experiences have been met with grumpy men in the office. The drivers are always very pleasant and helpful and in turn, I usually tip them. Upon my return, I called the lot immediately upon retrieving my bags but received voice email and left a message and then made my way to the pickup area. I waited a good 10 mins and when I finally arrived at the lot to pickup my car, there was no one in the office. I waited, called out several times, walked around the lot but could not locate a single soul! I finally found the agent in the rear washing a car. I understand it was a Sunday but all told, from the time I called for the shuttle to the time I left the lot, a good 30+ mins had passed. I was tired and just wanted to get home!

The service was good but the experience from the transfer to the airport is why there are not 5 stars. The driver was rude, disrespectful to my wife and other passengers and his driving skills questionable. We had experience of this same driver when we used the facility previously and complained then too. Clearly customer feedback is not taken into consideration.

Directions to the park was accurate got there no problem. Check in was fast and all the staff were frendly. Only concern the distance to the drop off and pick up point seems to get further every time I use this service.

All good except directions could have been clearer. We found an incorrectly named road and don't know the area at all so a map as well as written wold have helped. Would have got four stars if map provided.

The car parking itself was very good and efficient, the bus driver was very helpful and went out of his way to assist us when we couldn't find the car park on arrival, better directions from the forth Road bridge are required though!
