Great place to park and great price. Only one problem no parking space number given so we parked in one of the empty spots where that property had 2 spaces (tuned out 3 after talking to a nice man who lived nearby) and left a note in car with my mobile number to ring if it was the wrong space. We parked in one of number 5’s spots. Was it correct?!?!Judith
