Small car park, not the easiest place to find. But all good otherwiseSimon
Tight car park but reasonably priced and great for stays at Premier Inn secure and well lit.Bernie
I was a bit nervous just parking and buggering off but two days later my car was still there and no ticket or owt like that. Will definitely use again.David
This parking space fulfilled my boyhood dreams of a parking space. What can I say..... nothing more to achieve now that I have reached these dizzy heights. I will bask in my radiant light for all eternity.C M
Wow. thank god I've had a chance to review this car park space. Since I left this morning I can't stop thinking about it. Flat, black and with two pararallel lines - about a car width apart - made this my favourite car park spaces in 2020 and possibly top 5 of the 21st Century (let's not forget Gilligham Park Forest). If you get a chance to park here you should - Chester's quite nice too but sitting in the car was better.Richard
Easy to booked. Perfect location. It’s always my to go parking everytime I need to get a train from Chester!Ann
