Mr cook Saturday 28 Nov 2015 at 12:14 (5 out of 5)


We have used this service at Bristol several times. Since I had to medically retire and income is limited, the benefit is we have the time to take advantage of cheap holidays. We can leave the car in the disabled spaces which are close to the booking in area. I must say am impressed that every time the car has been left to collect in a disabled area close to as well. That cannot be easy with so many cars moving around. The staff are friendly, helpful and pleasant to deal with. I love the video on the bus too - very interesting. Many thanks to those involved with the parking. Kind regards Michael

cannot comment on mini bus service as we did not need it as the walking distance was easy. Likewise customer service at the car park not needed as number plate recognition system worked perfectly.

Shame there's not some better way of displaying where there are empty spaces w=once you've entered the car park particularly at an airport where time is critical and not having to driving around a large plot trying to find a space.

Mr Back Wednesday 25 Nov 2015 at 09:36 (5 out of 5)


We have used the services of Purple Parking on many occasions and have never been disappointed. The staff are professional and courteous at all times.

Mr WARD Friday 27 Nov 2015 at 08:55 (5 out of 5)


I now realise that an earlier booking would have saved me money. I'll be more organised next time..
