Having used this car park twice and had both times and okay service it seems to have gone down hill a lot. The car park is all over the place now there isn’t any organisation. Got back to my car to it been a mess. Dirty all over and it wasn’t left like that. All the seats had been put down. They couldn’t even find the keys when I arrived at reception. I saw staff moving the cars round and they really don’t look after your car so I wouldn’t use them again.

Used this car park previously with no problems, not again! Arrived as usual checked in no problems ,even complementing them on the improvements since December 2017. The problems started on our return, phoned reception (after clearing airport at silly o'clock ,after a 4hour+ flight from Turkey, and then delays getting off the plane), told bus would be 8 minutes, only to see it pulling away from bus stop.Next bus was 20+ minutes and by time we got back to car park was completely full. Arrived back at car park approx 4.15 am on Tuesday Sept 11th, pouring with rain, reception area full, driver helped us unload cases, no room so outside in rain, went to check in, was given key, and told “car was outside to left”,(previously car has been outside, lights on, engine running, ready to go). Car was not to left, car park was uneven, unlit, and pouring with rain, I was on point of going to get help (I am disabled), when I literally stumbled across my car. I managed to find my way out of the car park despite any signage and pulled up in front of reception, we had just loaded our luggage when a man tapped on my window, lowered window, man says “can’t park there mate, it’s a bus lane" (no visible markings and no bus in sight), I replied “don’t even go there, mate” to which he replied “you can f***k off”, and disappeared into car park. I have reported this by phone to Toad Parking, who said they would investigate, look at CCTV, and that I should have said I was disabled, I shouldn’t have to! I have NO confidence Toad will do anything about this, and I will never use them again.

Bunch of cowboys!!!! Do not book secure parking with this company if you want your back without damage on it. Returned to collect our car at 3:30 am keys thrown at us and told cars round there!!! Pitch black no lighting so no way of checking condition of car. On arriving home car was parked on drive for rest of night. Few hours sleep before going out to car to notice damage on drivers door. Call made to carepark who asked for photos etc. They are now claiming that as this wasn’t reported on collection they are not liable. Provide lighting and staff to check cars in and out and then maybe this would be possible. I will now be taking legal advise and pursuing them for damages. Please don’t use this company who clearly have no concern over how they look after your cars.

After reading a lot of bad reviews I was a bit concerned about using this company. I didn’t need to be!!!! As we pulled up a very friendly and helpful young man helped us to unload our bags and directed us to the office where we was booked in!! The bus arrived 5 mins later and took us to the airport on return we waited approx 5 mins for the bus to pick us up. A very friendly driver returned us to the office where we was handed our keys and the car was waiting for us!! I would definitely use Toad Parking again - no hassles just a very straight forward service!! Thank you

Buses run every 15-20 minutes. So why were we left waiting 45 minutes? On arrival back from Portugal they'd lost our car keys. Took them 30 minutes to find them The office appears a little chaotic and amatuerish. Next time, I'll pay a bit more and park at the airport
