Sheffield GB
We were booked into Long stay 1. We arrived in the dark and had a bit of trouble finding it because the signage is not very clear or well illuminated in the dark. Otherwise it was OK.

we had a person in a wheel chair with us. Meet and greet was full so I booked the car park as I thought next to the terminal. When we got there this so called car park was not within walking distance. Not very happy.......

Kettering GB
It was hard to find a space, didn't seem to be clear direction signs for the flow of the car park and cars were parked over the walking areas so you either had to walk along the part where cars were driving or walk inbetween the vehicles.
