Short Stay 3 East Midlands Airport Address
East Midlands airport,
The directions were out of date and referred to a signpost towards a thistle hotel that did not exist. The instructions on the email stated that all I had to do was drive up to the barrier and registration number recognition would raise the barrier. It didn't! The assistance button however did work and told us take a token for our return. There was no mention of a token in the email instructions so everything was a little confusing at 3am in the morning. Surely parking companies know how their facility works and wouldn't be too difficult to update their instructions to customers more accurately. Having said this it did all work, but not without a little bit of panic!Mr Rowe (East-midlands Short Stay 3 East Midlands Airport)
Short stay Cat Park 3 was an excellent choice- easily found a space, walked to the terminal and no problems at all. Would recommend.Mrs Dexter (East-midlands Short Stay 3 East Midlands Airport)
Great service as always. The number plate recognition worked perfectly both in and out and we found a space easily. We got exactly what we paid for.Mr Gallagher (East-midlands Short Stay 3 East Midlands Airport)
it took 30 minutes for the bar at the exit to raise and there was no answer to the phone again. This is twice this year we have had a problem getting out.Mr Lane (East-midlands Short Stay 3 East Midlands Airport)
Getting in was no problem
Ease of booking and, the fact that even though the plane was delayed - we drove out as normal. No hassle or extra fees.Mrs Nield (East-midlands Short Stay 3 East Midlands Airport)
