Poor signs with the four-hour notice on. £100 is exorbitant for a car parking charge that we overstayed by 10 minutes, despite what the sharks say. They have just lost 3 regular customers. Go elsewhere...Leamington/Solihull even London would be better than this rip-off shopping park.

Parked in disabled bay, displayed blue badge, for 4 hours 16mins received unexpected fine of £100, did not think a retail park of any reputation would have a charge for shopping too long.
