We had a great welcome from Catherine the receptionist. No parking space left at the hotel so we were directed to a nearby car park which cost less than hotel. Speedy check in given a map and shown nearby points of interest. Good substantial breakfast although did not explain

The Charlotte Street car park is a few minutes walk away. It is huge (1000+places) and you can pay by the hour, day, multiple days with multiple exit/entry (there are no barriers). We used it for our 4 day stay at The Francis and it was ideal. Had no security problems. You can pay via your phone - instructions are on the noticeboards in the car park - via the MiPermit system and you will get reminders of expiry and the ability to extend your stay via text remotely without having to return to the car park. i found it great.
