Latest Royal Stoke Hospital parking reviews
Very convenient parking space. A 15 minute walk to the west building at the hospital. I will use it again however the recent price increase puts it at a slightly higher price than the cheapest hospital staff parking.Benjamin
A very welcomed reasonably priced parking space in a safe area and very spacious. I'm grateful that it's available.Benjamin
Easy to find, plenty of spaces on the day I parkedGeoff
Good value, great location for visiting the hospital, quite tricky to locate the correct driveway from the main road though initially, particularly as the road is so busy, it hard to slow down enough to see the correct turning unyil you are past it. Happy with the space overall.Katie
I booked this space because i had an appointment at the Royal Stoke Hospital. I don’t live near Stoke so we had gone for a ride to see what the parking was like there and quickly realised we would have problems finding a space at the time of my appointment. I therefore found this app for parking and put in i needed a space near the hospital. This parking space came up and i booked it. It was so easy, The space itself was slightly difficult to find mainly because it is a very busy, fast road and when i slowed down to find the turning i was soon blasted from behind by an irate driver, i therefore missed the turn and had to go past and turn around , there is a central reservation so you can’t just cross the road to get back. But once i knew where the entrance to the car park was it was easy to get there. I would 100% recommend and it was just a 5 minute walk to the hospital so took away the stress of driving round the car park there.Thankyou to the owners for allowing the parking spaces to be used. Hopefully i won’t need to go back to stoke hospital again but i know where to park if i do.Diane
Very easy to get to and quite spacious. Directions spot on. Good 10 mins walk from the hospital main entrance. I was concerned about crossing the. A34 but it was actually quite easy to cross. One thing is if you enter by the first hospital entrance off the A34 (as you will) there is almost no signage to the hospital departments. If you are not familiar with the hospital layout its an idea to have a map of it. Save a bit of walking!Jonathan
A very nice parking space quite close to the University hospital. Quite competitive price. The parki space owner was very helpful in guiding me to the right location as I was driving to Stoke for the first time. Would certainly book the same place when at UHNM next.Sumedha
