Bargain spot at the Premier Inn nearby. Secure and safe. Dropped luggage off at the Travelodge first, it’s a bit of a walk between the 2 places but not a problem. Will certainly use again while staying in Welwyn Garden City.Karen
Mia was so, so lovely and so accommodating to my needs ! She advised how she would check on my car throughout the day, and if I needed to stay a bit longer, she was more than okay with this. She even took time out of her morning to walk with me so she could show me the shortcut pathway to the town ! Lovely woman, large parking space, very reasonable, and very close to town ! Thanks Mia, Steph !Stephanie
