I like using Shortrun - the staff are usually pretty friendly and helpful. I dislike the machines used in Mackadown lane as they can't scan mobile devices. I also preferred Shortrun's way of using the booking code as the reference throughout the stay, so not sure why Mackadown Lane use a different code. Liked the display screens showing bus and flight times in Mackadown Lane - useful information at your fingertips!Mr Smith (ShortRun By Airparks)
