    Used this car park over 2 days. First day used GPS to find, no problem. On leaving tried to use the exit machine but should of used the payment machine before leaving. No problem attendant was very helpful. Next day used payment machine and no issues. First day parked around 12 noon and there was very few spaces (bank holiday weekend, Fri) but found one eventually. Next day parked around 11am (Sat no problems). Car park is well located for city centre, 10 mins to Royal mile walking with children on busy day. Would recommend but think you need to try and park earlier in the day for more available spaces.

    Good location, very good price. But.... I booked my parking via YPS app. Got the bar code. Drove into the car park no problem. Going out was not as easy.. It says put the ticket in. So i did... Then it says scan barcode... There is nowhere to scan it. It wanted to charge me 14£ instead of 6£..... The solution was pressing the Help button. Lady on the help line got my booking id and open a gate for me. So put the bar code scanners on exit so people can do it without outside help.

    Found the car park with ease using GPS. Took ticket on entry but then struggled to find a space (bank holiday weekend around 12 noon) although there was lots of reserved spaces not used. Eventually found a slot. I used the car park over two days, on the first did not know that you had to present your ticket to a payment machine not the exit machine. Not to worry the operator was very helpful. On the second day used the payment machine presenting my bar code to the machine for payment and worked a treat. The car park is a 10 minute walk to the Royal mile (with children). Would definitely use again.

    Staff were very helpful however we had to wait as there were no spaces, so you may want to try to avoid busy times

    Parking location was great. Unfortunately we were unable to scan barcode to get discounted parking which we had purchased. Staff were excellent and assisted us to solve the issue. Would definitely use again.

    We booked this parking space in Edinburgh at quarter mile park site to find when we got there we couldn’t enter the car park! We contacted the help button which was operated by q park and they responded to say unfortunately we would have to wait till a car left before we could enter! when we booked this space and it was confirmed we could enter at 10.30 but we eventually got in at 11.15! In the meantime there were cars behind us trying to get in so we had to constantly move the car so they could get in! After eventually getting in we parked for the day. When leaving time came the ticket we collected wasn’t responding so again we had to contact q parking to explain the situation which they then said they were having lots of issues with 3rd party parking companies offering this booking service. Next time I would not use this company to book a car park space!
