Latest Exeter parking reviews
Excellent parking space in quiet street, easy walk to Exeter St David's stationAileen
Good car park and space super safe friendly staff. Only fault is that the address is wrong as it took me to the wrong shopping Center car park so had to use my maps to figure it out.Jenny
Easy to find, very convenient to the station,would recommend .Evan
2 things worth noting: 1. Access - easy to confuse the Princesshay carparks - there are three all together, this one Princesshay Shopping Centre, Princesshay 2 and Princesshay 3. Princesshay Shopping centre one is accessed from Southernhey East, not Dix's Field. 2. Arriving was fine as attendant took details via intercom but on leaving the pay machine did not recognise my payment made to YPS, nor did the barrier machine. I could only get out by the attendant inspecting my app for proof of payment then the barrier was raised. Would have caused a traffic jam if it had been busier. The attendant maintained they had been told nothing about YPS and the system was a complete mystery.Chris
Lovely space, good size and easily accessible within the car park.Emma
Parking was great - easy to find location and spot was a good size. Would park here again!GEORGINA
Quick and simple to book, good price and worked well - all positivePeter
Easy access and feels safe, right in the city centre. I did manage to find it, but still felt I had to call the owner to check I was in the right place. The call was answered immediately. With Premier Inn car park out of action, this spot was ideal.Alexander
Easy to find, good spot, well locatedZoe
