As previous review. Small Asian parking attendant extremely rude and unhelpful. Returned to collect son after 45 minutes told if he wasn't out in 10 I'd have to move although there were loads of empty spaces.

Security guard really rude. Would not let me park in one of the hundreds of bays free even though son is disabled. Badgered me till u drive about 2 miles away. Discusting. Will be taking it further, it's the Indian fella that sits in the box.
