I am not parking anywhere else when I go into Manchester. Everything spot on and safe. Brilliant.Kenneth
Great spot near the airport. You will need to walk to the airport but, worth it for the price. I will be using this next time I travel.Michelle
Great location and price! Very easy to follow instructions too.Jack
Easy to follow instructions sent via email, easy to find, and easy to get to the airport (terminal 1 took about 10-12 mins and I think it's the nearest terminal to the carpark) I'd book againSundeep
Everything was as described. Follow the instructions and go get your permit from reception Great stuffCraig
Brilliant, very central, easy to park and the hotel staff were friendly and helpful. ThanksCaroline
Great space at very good price. Failed to recognise my number plate which made me a little anxious when leaving, but the woman on the intercom was very helpful and let me out. It's a little frustrating when the number plate recognition doesn't work, but I've not had a problem with getting out.Rhiannon
Easy to use , great location for train station and very reasonably pricedJohn
