Latest Ponds Forge parking reviews
A little bit confusing on leaving. You don't need to put the token in the pay machine. Just proceed to the barrier insert token and press the assistance button. You then have to give the operator your booking reference and the barrier will be raised for you. Overall a good experience and good value. I will use againSteven
very easy, book your space & drive in/out!Jennifer
Big spaces and easy to accessAmanda
Easy, convenient, value for money and you don't have to be staying at Premier Inn. We were staying at Ibis Budget next doorJayne
Worked great, thanks very much!Matthew
Very nice and clean car park. It was well lit and the spaces were a proper size allowing ones car doors to be opened easily. We struggled a bit to get the barcode needed for the exiting procedure through Google. When I used my email to login, we got what we needed. When using the machine to ‘checkout’, it was not obvious that we needed to scan the barcode, as the machine didn’t tell us it was ready to scan it. It was also not obvious where to show the barcode to the machine either. Anyway, after a bit of fiddling we got it sorted out. Now that I know what to do, it will be easier next time. Might I suggest that the ticket machine has a caption that tells the ticket holder it is ready for the barcode scan. Another label on the machine to show where the scanner is would be helpful too. If you can’t get your barcode sorted out, you’ll have to pay again to get your car out!Julian
Easy, good value and Atkinson’s department store is good too.Karen franklin
The car park was very secure, we were a little surprised when we arrived to see shutters down and it was not immediately obvious that we just needed to approach the entrance so that the camera could read our registration plate. When we did the doors opened. The bar code needed to access by foot was reassuring. We were staying in the hotel next door and the easiest access was from the top floor as the ground floor pedestrian access required a walk through an office park as a fence had been erected preventing direct access.Michael
