Latest Cardiff parking reviews
Great space for walking to the museum/park, about 10 minutes with small children. Easy to find and plenty of space. Will use again.Jennifer
Easy to find and a short walk to castle, rugby ground and city centre. I would use again when visiting CardiffLawrence
All good. Dave was very helpful (especially if you don't know Cardiff) with lots of text-based info. I was a bit worried about finding a place, even with the permit provided, as the road was quite busy but all ok.Gary
Very handy parking space close to Cardiff city centre. The space is in a shared driveway to the rear of the property, however the space owner had provided detailed instructions that made it easy to find. As there were other cars parked there, we were a little uncertain that we could park in a way to allow access to the other vehicles, but the space owner was available by phone and was friendly and helpful. You need to park on an angle at the back of the drive and then its quite accessible for everybody. If I do return to Cardiff any time I would book this space again.Tracy
Great off road parking in a nice area very easy booking system. I will use this space again!Jessica
The space was very close to Cardiff Castle, which we had planned to visit. The car park ended up being easy to get in and out of. However, without a street number, it was not easy to find. Our GPS thought the car park was Cardiff Castle itself. The directions given in the e-mail were helpful in getting to the city center but not in finding the final destination. I would recommend this parking space only if it included a proper address or detailed instructions that it was behind the Holiday Inn.Mark
