Parking problem
Requested parking when we booked and was told there was parking available. The morning of our arrival I called to confirm parking was available. The reception told me that there was no parking on site but to use the NCO car park which was only 3 mins walk away from the hote and to bring the ticket to reception so it could be validated. I did this and asked the guy at the reception if the parking was fully validated. He said ‘yes it’s all done’. 2 days later we departed and put the validated ticket into the machine. NCP stated there was £39 outstanding for parking. I spoke with NCP control who told me that the agreement with Holiday inn express was to provide a 25% on parking, not that the ticket was fully validated.
