Latest Edinburgh parking reviews
Easy to find parking space, safe area and a friendly owner, would recommend!Stuart
Easy to find parking space in well lit car park. Good access to Leith Theatre.
Big wide parking space , just watch the post on the ground Got shouted at from resident saying it was resident parking only explained I had paid for it she wasn’t happy But no issues other than that easy to find just round the corner from leith river and theatreRobert
Parking space is ok but MAKE SURE YOU DON'T DRIVE OVER THE PARKING POST! I've forgotten about this, and drove over it, resulting a huge hole in my tire. This is the last thing you want when you're 600 miles away from home.Alexander
I was initially worried, as I had called the Hokiday Inn itself, for some help, and they said they didnt rent out spaces? I was reassured by Yourparkingspace that all was well. We drove through, found a space, parked no problem, and came back to the car and all was well. Great service, and would use again.Susan
Very easy to find, close to all amenities in Leith and within walking distance of the Royal Brittania Ship, buses into Edinburgh etc etc. Small hiccup on arrival but was easily and quickly resolved with a phone call. Would recommend and definitely use again if in the area.Lynn
