“Not much there and big parking charges”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

There is nothing at here, except a fast ferry to the Isle of Wight and a slow ferry to Hythe.
The coffee shop is friendly (a single exception from all the other staff) and a lot of empty shops
The parking costs far too much (warning all monitored by cameras) and if you get “booked” it can cost over £100
Avoid it if you can

“An authorised scam...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

Avoid this area by all means!
The car park management company "Parking Eye" will always find a reason to issue you with a penalty charge, whether you leave your car unattended or not. I got fined £110.00 for overstaying by 1 minute - I kid you not!
When you think that some people in this country get away with murder, it's simply despicable.
Forewarned is forearmed...

“Lack of ammenaties”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Where are the toilets? There used to be a block of toilets here but now closed. There is 1 toilet in the red funnel/red jet waiting room but it is nearly always out of order. Disgusting wat to treat fare paying passengers
