Absolutely seamless, absolutely recommend this service.Peter
Absolutely excellent service, I will definitely be using and recommending the appMark
John and his wife were extremely accommodating considering we were driving a nosey old American rat rod, the parking spot was just what we needed and definitely felt like we were leaving the car in safe hands, would highly recommend for anyone, thanks again, Dan & Sarah xDaniel
This booking worked out fine, it was relatively convenient for us overall. The owner was very pleasant and helpful. A couple of comments...it seemed to be very busy when we arrived, and the owner didn't answer the phone or texts as advised. The parking is not the easiest to find but I had looked on Google earth beforehand so I knew roughly where to go, thankfully. It seemed as if there were too many cars there for the spaces however, and I ended up being asked to leave my key so it could be moved later on which I wasn't 100% happy about, but didn't have any choice. Not sure how the insurance rules work in that situation for example. Overall I wouldn't hesitate to book again however. Thank youDavid
Easy to find, 15 min walk to hotel and could exit as many times as you wanted which is perfect on your holidays when you are visiting different places every dayLisa
