Latest Aberystwyth parking reviews
Parking was fine and safe. Finding it however was a nightmare as postcode takes you to seafrontSue
Excellent arrangement ~ although Aberystwyth was crowded due to incoming students we had no problem parking because we were booked in through your company so THANK YOUKeith
What a fantastic 24 hr service. Will use againDavid
Easy to park and really straight forward to book. Great value.Matt
Spaces available when we arrived. Comforting bonus to see CCTV coverage from Premier Inn. Nowhere else to park in Aberystwyth, so very glad we booked this.Ian
Great location and good value for money - just £ 3 for the day on the Saturday of the August Bank Holiday weekend. Would have been five stars if the information had indicated that the postcode will not take you to the car park, but simply to the road that the hotel is on - the car park is actually accessed from a separate road at the rear. Not a big issue, but tiny details matter if customer experience is to be exceptional.Chris
Really handy parking space, only a couple of minute walk to the sea front. Difficult to find due to road closures but can’t imagine it would normally be a problem! Very reasonable cost aswell, only £3 for whole day!Rachel
Car park was too busy, badly laid out.Steve
Recommend this carpark most definitely, Simple to book, only issue is the carpark access is from bath street and not marine terrace.Paul
