Bristol Official Long Stay Parking reviews

Our average review score for Bristol Official Long Stay Parking is 3.5 from 117 reviews.

The long stay car park is an absolute rip off, left my car for 30 hrs in long stay and it cost me £65. What an absolute rip off. The airport is now very chaotic with too many travellers, waited 10 mins to go through fast track security with only one lane open. Will be using Cardiff airport from now on where prices are less than half.

I have used the Sliver Zone Car Park about 16 times over the years when going to Copenhagen. The service has always been good and I have always booked in advance and paid under £50 for 5 days parking. I usually book as soon as I get back for our next time, as I fly out to Copenhagen twice a year. Yesterday I booked for this coming September (with 4 months to go) only to find that the cost for the same period of time had shot up to just under £80. I think this is exorbitant and that is why I have only given 3 stars as a rating. I think this is plain greed, so for the future, I am now considering an alternative parking venue.

Comment on new Multi-Storey Carpark. Booked an online supposedly special and checked into carpark found a space in first level. No lifts working so difficulty with sticks for elderly passengers. After 7 day holiday had to pay 134.99 to get out - again no lifts. Cost of cark park was 28 pounds more than a return flight with baggage for two persons to the South of France. This represents very poor value for the service received. An off airport parking service would take a disabled person to the departure entrance at a much lower rate.

Hideously expensive and hardly any of the car park even has a decent surface to trundle luggage across to the terminal, mostly rubble or poor tarmac. It's all about straight profiteering- a quote for 19 hours parking (i.e. 2 days) came in at £58 - or just over £3.05 per hour. A disgrace.

Although it is opposite the airport ,it depends where you find a space to the distance you are from the actual terminal ,in my case it was over half a mile away with very little understandable directional signage, however the worst part of the car park was the diabolical state your car is actually in on arrival back from your holiday ,covered in all kinds of mess which even an automatic car wash failed to clean at a cost of £7 on top of which I had to pay another £4 for special cleaning material to clean it myself,I have used car parks at Cardiff-Birmingham-Heathrow and Gatwick and have never found my car to never be in the condition it was at Bristol -the only award you deserve is A filth award and will NEVER use this OnSite long stay car park again.
