Latest Edinburgh parking reviews
As sold. Spaces big enough. Car park was safe enough and ideal for the hospital. It took me 20 minutes to walk to the hospital but it was a nice day - an Uber to would be about £5. Convenient if you’re wanting to pick up a wee bit of food shopping prior to heading home.Kelly
Easy to book, easy to find and very close to where I needed to go! I will definitely use again.Nicola
Yes everything was fine . I have a Peugeot 3008 and it was a neat fit so anything bigger would struggle to get inWilliam
First time used YourParkingSpace , very pleased with the product. Clear communication both pre and post booking. Space as described and easy to find just past the Britannia hotel. Space was marked with a cone and was sufficient for a saloon.Will use again, thanksDhananjay
