Firstly, my car is a 3.5L Nissan 350Z RWD. Never leave your car with them. I reset every trip counter before i left the car with them. When i collected it had been driven 6 Miles, at 17mpg, which means they were driving with a heavy foot. The whole establishment is a joke with manky rooms and bar and terrible... More

My wife and I thought it would be nice to rest up locally before our flight at 7 am next day. We arrived at 8.30 pm, parked and went for a drink. The bar staff made ignorance into an art form, food was clearly pre-cooked microwave fare. Later back at the unwelcoming bar we were told there was a party... More

I made the mistake of planing to have breakfast here... I didn't have it in the end as the place is filthy and all of the dirty rude staff look like they live in swamps... Shrek wouldn't be out of place. The whole place stinks of cigarettes, there's no customer care or interest. It may be cheap to park there... More

This place is disgusting the rooms old and smelt like a old tramps overcoat(the overcoat would be cleaner). My car was filthy and covered in mud inside and out. The men in the cabins are rude and couldn't care less about your car. Why hasn't this place been closed down. I rather sleep in the airport.

Arrived at 5.00am, entered a small, smokey, nicotine, stinking, smelly office to check in, I was told to park my car in a certain spot, which I did. I have to say the transfers to and from the airport were extremely prompt with no hanging around. On my return, I collected my keys from the same stinking office and complimented... More

Clearly the theory of natural selection / evolution does not apply here. You can't help but feel violated and dirty, and that's just after dropping the car off without entering the building. You get the distinct impression that their company strap line would be along the lines of "go forth and multiply because we don't care". The scary thing is... More
