I contacted the owner beforehand and she was very helpful. Address was easy to find and was a short walk to the hospital for my daughters appointment. Would definitely recommend and will be using again.Nicola
Parking space was easy to find and just right for my Clio. It was round the corner from the hospital and very convenient. It was lovely to know that there was a space waiting for me instead of having to search around the area. I would certainly use the space again if I was visiting the hospital
