“Large selection of stores”

Mostyn Champneys Retail Park
Ranked #17 of 22 Shopping in Llandudno
Attraction details
Reviewed March 8, 2014

Firstly let me say that I cannot comment on previous reviews regarding the so called "parking scam" as we have on our two visits never stayed much more than one hour, however I can understand why such a scheme, if managed honestly and properly could be required, many tourists visit Llandudno and are always on the lookout for cheap or free parking, the parking lot is really for shoppers using the stores. There is a very good variety of stores and outlets, so if shopping is your thing, then a visit is recommended.

I've been visiting Mostyn Champneys ever since it was first opened and I've never once seen the car park anywhere close to being full, not even at Christmas. And yet they've now brought in the Parking Eye scammers to (mis)manage the car park. Why? I can only think that Savills who own the park are desperate to milk the very same people they're relying on to keep them in business, i.e. the customers who hand over the money that the retailers in turn hand over to Savills in the form of rent. Fortunately you can easily see off the scammers via the "independent" parking appeals body (POPLA). It takes a little time but it won't cost you anything and as a bonus it will cost Parking Lie £27+VAT. Just do a Google search for "Parking Eye scam POPLA", there's a huge amount of advice available.

The irony is that there is a big problem with the car park - the exits are very badly designed so on the occasions when it does get very busy it can be very difficult to out of there. The Parking Lie cameras don't provide any help whatsoever in sorting this out, although I suspect some of the people stuck in the traffic jam will unexpectedly find they've exceeded their welcome and as a result will find themselves targets of Parking Lie's junk mail through no fault of their own!

It's all a bit of shame really as there are some good shops here including a big branch of Sports Direct, Currys PC World, Home Bargains, Argos, Homebase, Smyth's Toys, Maplins and a variety of furniture, bed and carpet shops. There's also and Iceland and an Aldi so can do your weekly shop as long as you run round the aisles quickly enough. Finally there's also a McDonalds and a bowling alley....again beware if you go bowling. Don't enjoy yourself too much or you'll also start receiving free toilet paper from Parking Lie.

But I suppose we should make the most of this site before the retailers decide that so many of their customers have been scared off that it's no longer viable to trade there.

When using the Mostyn Champneys Car Park, please be aware of the Two Hour parking restrinction enforced by Parking Eye.
We recently fell foul of this at a cost of £50 - although I have yet to see a sign saying so.
Two hours to visit 20+ shops and have a meal is not a long time.
Shop Elsewhere - and pay for parking ..... it's cheaper than fifty quid.
