Latest Exeter Quay parking reviews
Easy to find, plenty of spaces and close to town. Will be happy to use YPS again.Fay
Great location in the holiday inn express car park just cheaper than paying dailyAlan
Would highly recommend this parking area if you're visiting Exeter. Very easy to locate with ample bays available. A short walk into town or along the river to the Quay- made our visit a lot nicer not having to worry about finding a parking spot.
Really good value and a great locationSeamus
Will definitely be parking here next time when I'm in Exeter. Close to the city centre and the docks. The receptionist was first class.Stephanie
Excellent place to park close to cathedral and Quay would use againRichard
We parked here for 5 days and were staying in the town centre opposite the Cathedral. Only 10 minutes walk to the apartment we rented. Arrived at the car park and plenty of spaces. Over the 5 days we were out and about most days and never has any issues securing a parking space. In a safe area of town with plenty of lighting. Would highly recommend based on price, location etc.Jane
