“on the sea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

It was easy to book ferries to I>O>W and the ticket as foot passengers reasonable. WE had the choice of the Ferry or Jet foil we took the jet foil as it only took 30 minutes the ferry takes 1hr

“Rip off parking”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Number plate recognition and pay and display machines that don't give tickets mean that you cannot prove you paid and get £100 fine!The parking eye company are crooks denying anything is wrong with their machines!
Not worth a visit anyway. AVOID PARKING THERE!!!!

“If you must visit go on foot”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Do not take your car onto Town Quay, number plate recognition is in operation on car park which has ambiguous and confusing signage, giving the operator ample opportunity to slap a £100 ticket on the windscreen. A few years ago this was a vibrant cafe society area a nice place to visit for a drink or a meal, today most of the shops and bars are closed with lots of empty units it all looks a bit drab. On the plus side it's a good vantage point to view the passing ships, just don't take the car.

Robin Hood stole from the rich to give to the poor.... a different sort of theft is taking place at Town Key so simply stay away.... do not go near the place....

“Gone to the dogs”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2014

When developed some years back, this was a bustling place with shops, bars, restaurants, ferries. Now, its run down with just a small sandwich place left. It's miserable and only worth visiting to leave it - on a ferry. It needs investment. The car park occupies a peachy spot and will sure be covered in expensive apartments one day....
