Excellent service, from going online to book to picking up my keys after returning. No real negative comments. Just busy and a full car park.

Location is easy, drop off is simple, but when I got back home and checked the car out there was muddy footprints everywhere including on the back of the front seats (I know because 2days earlier I had valeted the car myself) I also had about�7 in change in the front console (hidden by papers and other stuff) for when I needed change for a parking meter but when I remembered a few days later the money was gone. Wouldn't trust this place again. Someone had been using it and stole the money.

WARNING - AVOID AT ALL COST. I left my key - they stole the key blade to my car and damaged by key fob. Initially agreed to sort out the key, but suddenly stopped all communication over the last 2 weeks after 3 weeks of messages back and forth. I am having to report this incident to the police as stolen and damaged property. The have provided no phone number to speak to management nor highlighted their complaints policy. I will probably have to peruse the case legally after advise from the Citizens Advice Bureau if they can not help. Luckily I have evidence on my dash cam footage and email trails before they stopped communication.

Avoid Toad parking (I think part of CarE Parks). It is very poorly signposted and I needed to stop to ask despite Tom Tom and google maps pinpointing the place. The reception is down a bumpy uneven track around an industrial building that does not inspire confidence. Lastly, I had to wait over 25 minutes on a very cold night for the return pickup bus (phoning not permitted). To add to this, the argumentative female driver stated very loudly that she was on time and continued to do so several times to the embarrassment of other passengers. Concern and sympathy were in very short supply. I will never use them again.
