john hallam- 23-01-2022 "Arrived at Cophall Parking to find it deserted and abandoned, and in complete darkness. Ok, I was a little early, so I hung around a bit to wait for somebody to open it up, but nobody came. I noticed that the roads were thick with ice, and the road overgrown with brambles, so I concluded that Cophall had gone bust, and so I rang a phone number to get onto an answer machine message redirecting me to APH. Staff at APH were excellent ... It seemed that Cophall had been taken over by APH, but Cophall customers hadn't been told."

Anoniem- 14-10-2021 "The car park itself that we booked, is no longer up and running. We weren’t told this before hand , there was just a sign on the entrance . It directed to the APH parking , which was very good and efficient and easy. Transport to and from the airport easy too. I would recommend APH but feel the car park that is no longer running should be taken off the website . "

Jennifer Kay- 20-10-2020 "Everything was exactly as promised - good price, friendly, punctual etc The only comment I would make is that I would have been happy to pay a little extra to have it cleaned before I collected it. A white car which has been standing outside for over 3 weeks in Autumn gets filthy!"
