Latest Caterham parking reviews
Great spot - 10 min walk to south Terminal - I then hopped on the shuttle to north - easy to find - easy to use - would use again -Paul
Very convenient spot, clear instructions from the owner and less than 3 minutes to the hospital main reception. Can see why it is highly sought for. Satisfying!!!Benny
It has been great to use this space and there is no way I would have wanted to give it up other than for the fact that I have to give up my office in Croydon as I have moved much further away and I have some serious financial issues to resolve. But the cost of this space is very fair and the owner is a really lovely guy - very fair and friendly. Highly recommended. Not to mentiin the fact that it is just a few minutes walk from east Croydon station which is, of course, a major hub for central London, Gatwick and the south coast.Nick
Lovely lady. Came out and was welcoming and gave great instructions to Gatwick. Easy 10-15 minute walk with a 20kg suitcase.Sol
Easy to find, 10-15 min walk to gatwick south. Owner super helpful and gave me directions. Highly recommend.Katie
Great parking space! Would definitely recommend; although I would suggest that a map (preferably using a bird'eye view) is produced to clearly identify the house and also mark out parking area plus the spaces.Huzayfaa
Booked last minute. Easy to locate and no issues. 10 min walk to Gatwick airport.Joao
Ideal space for Croydon East station, and perfectly fit my Fiat Panda. I would recommend anyone with a longer car to not book this space as you would probably be hanging off the end onto the path. Could also probably do with some of the paving replacing as there were a couple of loose tiles that are fairly sharp and so might cause a puncture if they are hit straight on. Other than that, great parking space with no issues for us :)Jennifer
Easy to find, no complications and perfect location for the airportKelly
