Great location. I have used purple parking many times before without a hitch. But this time my car was not ready for my return. A bit disappointing but still a good service.

I preferred the previous system Purple Parking used when returning, i.e. you gave the driver your details and on returning to the car park he collected your keys at the security barrier and handed them out on disembarking the coach, otherwise no problems.
