Latest Leicester parking reviews
Great spot with easy access to station town centre and de-Montfort HallAlan
Easy to find, photos helpful to identify entrance. No problems parking standard estate car.Dorothea
small and tight but very secure right under hotel can be easily missed but worth every pennyTroy
Good safe parking space, owner kindly left more than enough space on the drive for my fairly large car. Within walking distance of the football stadium and easy access out of Leicester after the football. Would recommend.David
Very handy parking space for city centreAlan
Easy to find. No issues with available spaces. Very close to the railway station and town. Would definitely recommend.Neil
Excellent! After reading reviews I booked, arrived and parked with no issues. It is a tight car park but I expected that, didn't both reporting to reception, just did what I needed and no issues. I'd recommend it.David
Car park dark and uneven in places. No attendant. No parking instructions given, such as "park anywhere", "overflow car park around the corner" etc When booking in at Reception the person on duty didn't seem interested. Uphill walk on uneven pavements to DeMontfort Hall. Might seek alternative parking next time.Dickie
