Very friendly service on arrival & departure. Really close to the MEN which was ideal for us with young children. Will definitely use this car park again.Louise
Excellent parking space. Very close to the arena and city centre and very secure. Would recommend to allScott
Great space with easy access and close to Old TraffordTiina
Easy booking process. The main issue is finding the space. It is easy to reach off the ring road but there are no signs saying North Tower and the entrance to the car park is actually off Chapel Street. Luckily I had read earlier reviews saying it was connected to the Premier Inn. Even then there were no signs in the car park itself and I ended up having to check with the receptionist at Premier Inn to make sure I was in the right place. However...after that it was excellent! Very close to main shopping area, arena and cathedral. Plenty of space. Now I know where it is would definitely use again.Katherine
