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.

Easy on site parking. Close to terminal as advertised. Easy walk or bus available. Simple to get in and out. Repeat customer.

I was disappointed with my experience today and would like to suggest improvements. I travel worldwide for business, often with many cases of luggage. I turned up on my own with just 5 cases on this occasion but still needed a trolley. I couldn't find any obvious place in the carpark to get one. Luckily i found one abandoned trolley someone had left. I think there should be obvious trolleys in the carpark. Some walkway kerbs are too high to roll a fully laden trolley over making it difficult to get to the terminal depending where you park. Finally the, the usual entrance was closed presumably for some work and the diversion to get into the carpark was convoluted. It would have been nice to be notified of this online at the booking stage.

I’m probably one of the most frequent users of the car parking facilities - at least every 3 weeks for the past 6 years. You have almost no loyalty benefits - everyone already uses the 10% discount. Your charges are now becoming very uncompetitive as you have expanded and you have no flexibility when things go awry, as can happen with anyone who is a frequent traveller. I’m now thinking of using one of the other numerous parking services that are available near the airport. Yes, I overan by several days but paying out an additional £32 with the cursory comment that “ you should have been charged a lot more” does not sit well with me. Hugely disappointing in how your service has not evolved as you have expanded. As a business, you know that you need to keep your loyal customers but that will not happen if you provide Ryanair levels of customer care. However, I suspect that I’ll get no personal response to this constructive criticism. I do have several positive suggestions which might help to improve your service levels but I’m not convinced that this open and direct review will be appreciated or, indeed, replied to.
