“Do not stay here”

Written on: 01/11/2015

Although we opted for the basic caravan it seemed we were given the oldest on the site. There were 6 in our party but the van was only equipped for 4 so had to eat at different times and request extra bedding. It was dirty and very uncomfortable. The mattresses were lumpy and need throwing out. The van was parked on a slope so we were constantly going downhill. We went in the October half term so it was quite cold and the fire was a mare to turn on. Out of 4 gas rings only 2 worked. The shower… Read Full Review

“Cheap & basic - could do a lot better though”

Written on: 18/06/2013

First time guest at Fairway but sadly I wont be returning. The caravan was very old and worn but for £26 per night that is fair enough, especially as you get a fridge, gas cooker, cutlery, and crockery etc. Clubhouse was closed while I was staying so can't comment about entertainment. However what disappointed and worried me was the fact the window latches were rusty or broken and could be opened easily from the outside, plus the people in the caravan next to me were up drinking outside and… Read Full Review

“Damp, cold caravan, poor children's/adult entertainment”

Written on: 29/05/2013

We arrived at around 16:00 hours Saturday 25th May the receptionist was pleasant & friendly, we were given keys to our caravan, inside was very outdated, in need of upgrading, curtains not covering windows entirely, coming off rails. The single beds were tiny, not fit for adults anyway. we unpacked & hung up our clothes in tiny wardrobes. The caravan was cold & damp, we opened the windows to let in fresh air. To find we had noisy neighbour dogs barking, one in particular at 2-3 am! We went to… Read Full Review

“What happened?”

Written on: 03/11/2012

Having visited this park last year we decided to return this October half term. It was like entering a different world! Last year we had a shabby but clean caravan. This year there was mould and a very strange stale smell that no amount of Febreeze could disuise. Last year there was a range of themed nights, quizzes and childrens entertainment organised by a couple of lovely women (mother and daughter, I think), who dressed up and made everything fun for the kids. This year there was bingo and… Read Full Review

“Will definitely be returning next year”

Written on: 21/08/2012

Just got home from a 4 day break here and after reading the slating it got on trip advisor I really didn't want to go but had already booked it... Well what a lovely surprise awaited me. Arrived at reception 4 hours early for our van!! My mistake for misreading timings!! Staff were so helpful.. Our caravan wasn't ready but was done within the hour. Staff came to find us to let us know... Was so happy to see how lovely and clean it was. We had a caravan that was 10 years old and was in excellent… Read Full Review

“Good Value for Money”

Written on: 13/08/2012

After reading a few reviews I was pleasantly surprised, If you pay for two star accommodation don't expect four star. The accommodation was fine,may be a little tired and dated but thats what we paid for, fully functional and clean. The site itself was tidy and quite, a great base to explore the island… Read Full Review

“Relaxing family holiday”

Written on: 26/07/2012

We booked the Fairway Holiday Park for a family holiday for 15 so we requested 3 caravans close together. On arrival we booked in and were shown to our vans which were together as requested they were in excellent condition and very clean. The only fault we had were the signal on the televisions this was very poor and we kept loosing picture and sound. The site itself was very small however had a very nice heated pool and small play area for the children. there was a club house and cafe which… Read Full Review

I have just returned from a weeks holiday here for the 3rd yr running the staff are very friendly yes some of the caravans are a bit dated but where else can you rent a caravan in school holidays for £250 entertainment is only on during school holidays but is in a great location only 10 mins walk to the beach people on here complaining make me laugh if they want posh then don't pay cheap prices just ignore the reviews and make your mind up yourself when you get there but hope you enjoy it

“Caravan for a real budget holiday”

Written on: 29/10/2011 by sarah1971 (1 review written)

As this was a tabloid deal I wasn't holding out for the best of accomodation. We stayed in a Whippingham (2003) Luckily it didn't smell of smoke, but the cleanliness did leave a lot to be desired and I spent the first two hours cleaning. The caravan hadn't been cleaned as their were cobwebs on the walls on the floor, the toilet seat had poo still on it and I didn't dare look at the matresses till the end of the stay! (Good job as well as they were disgutingly dirty and all the springs had… Read Full Review

“Fairway Holiday Park, Sandown, Isle of Wight”

Written on: 11/10/2011

After being recommended by a friend, and reading the reviews, we stayed at the Fairway under the cover of a £38 Sun cheap weekend just to see what it was really like. Yes the caravan had been well abused by previous occupants but was clean and presentable. It had all the essential pots, pans, plates and cutlery. The site was quiet, well maintained, clean and tidy. You would need a car if you are less able or dislike walking, but there is a bus stop outside the site with an excellent bus… Read Full Review

“Better than expected ”

Written on: 09/10/2011 by Sessie (1 review written)

Visited October 2011 after being allocated from Sun £9.50 holidays. Very worried by some terrible and possibly malicious reviews but all fears allayed on arrival. Small, pleasant and tidy site. Plus points - Kids playground and well heated clean outdoor pool. Spar shop right outside the entrance. Short drive to all ammenities, club room on site. Downsides - not very picturesque being located in the middle of a housing estate, bar meals - little choice and chips with everything, amusement… Read Full Review

“Children's games, bingo and cabaret.....Great!!”

Written on: 08/08/2011

Having visited the clubhouse on several occasions, I have to say I found the staff pleasant and the entertianment good. When there were enough children in the room, group games were played, and if only a few (which was the case a few times) there was face painting and balloon sculpting. Bingo followed and then karaoke or a cabaret act provided by a visiting act or Jess (the in-house entertainer), who has a great voice and performs a wide range of older and up-to-date material. We particularly… Read Full Review

“A big disappointment”

Written on: 19/07/2011

My Partner and I have just returned from the Fairway Holiday Park, our 2nd visit, the 1st was in 2006. We went on our motor bikes so just had a budget caravan which was fine for our needs, didnt have to worry dirty boots, wet jackets etc, could'nt have made caravan any worse. they had entertainment very hi-de-hi but funny, so when we decided to go to the i.o.w. again we chose Fairway "BIG MISTAKE" upgraded on van = rubbish, bedding, my dogs had better beds, everything old and tired, not… Read Full Review
