Fantastic location for the hydro but the exact location is confusing. The map takes you to the Turning Point car park but the instructions say Epilepsy Centre. Please edit the location to make it clear. I’m still not sure if I parked in the right place?Driver
Reliable, car was absolutely fine for the 2 days it was left. Would definitely use again and very handy for the centre only 5-10min walk to central station.Pascale
Parking was good. Plenty of room. Identification of site not good. Very small sign on gate. GPS said another minute to go. 175 was nowhere to be seen. Would use again now we know where it is.Vicki
