Visited Liverpool in March
stayed at the Adelphi hotel,
when we got there we asked at the desk where the car park was,
told it's round the back,
went to the car park and went over to read the charges
as we were under the impression ir was gonna be £3 a day,
after reading the signs i wasnt sure what the charges were as it said something about "guests"
and i wasnt sure if they meant Car park guests or hotel guests????
well my Missus and her mate went to the desk to find out what the charges would be
while me and mate stayed with the car ..
.they came back and said they were told it was £12 per day .....
my mrs mate said she'd paid for the day....
i told her to get her £££ back and i would park elsewhere as that was a complete rip off,
i left the car park and parked in the one over the road (£3) per day (there is another story concerning this )
i was in the car park for 28 minutes.......
after i returned home i received a letter saying i had not paid for a ticket
accompanied by in/out photos showing i had been there for 28 minutes,
i have replied to them saying as i had not left the car
and was attempting to find out the charges this did not constitute parking,
as soon as i found out their extortinate charges i left their car park
,they have asked that i provide proof that i was staying at the Adelphi before they make their final decision
,i cant see why they dont just phone the hotel and ask them?????
i have sent what i can find (a groupon coupon,parking receipts from the other car park)
I did have to laugh at a sign saying the carpark was covered by cctv:-D ..
.i remarked to my mate " the only cctv here is to check when you arrive and leave
and they were attempting to make out the car park was covered by cctv to keep ya car safe ...
.across the road from the carpark was a gang of homeless drinkers who had made themselves comfy under a shelter
and i really didnt feel my car would be safe there anyway.......
.the Hotel refunded my mates missus after i put the car elsewhere.........
just wondering if anyone else had the misfortune to enter the hallowed turf of the Adelphi car park
who i assume pay the hotel to run the car park and rip people off??
by accepting that refunded payment
,does the hotel then become the company running the carpark??? ....
.. the letter came from Parkin Eye....
...... any info greatfully recieved
