After going to Pontins in Hemsby for Christmas for the last 21 years I have just found out that it has closed it door for the last time today. My daughter and the children of my frends have spent all their christmas here. The only bad thing about Christmas at Hembsy was the change in the law that recently happened. This meant there were only a few things to do on Christmas day itself, but apart from this I would like to thank all the staff from the Bluecoats to the cleaning staff who made... (read more)

Well what can I say !! After reading the reviews we almost canceled, but decided to brave it. BIG MISTAKE. On arrival we queued for over an hour in a very disorganized reception, in fairness, the staff were working as fast as they could, it comes down to mis-management.
We opened the door of our budget accommodation with great trepidation, it was clean, but so old and tatty, I could see into the rooms opposite, there was no privacy at all.
Did not sleep the first night at all, the bed settee... (read more)

Staff try to do a good job. The chalet was filthy, mould on tiles in bathroom and shower curtain. Not hoovered, kitchen sink brown, beds springs coming, I would not recommend the fun room it smells, pontins agree that the carpet needs replacing. (read more)

Been to Hemsby for the last 3 years, this year I noticed a lot of the chalets have been painted inside an out.
We always have a Club chalet and don't have a problem, we pay £60 for a week as there always seem to be excellent offers on in low season.
The entertainment is always excellent, my little one loves the characters and the party games.
Once you book in you are given a discount voucher booklet to use on drinks, food, toys and items from the shop this saves quite a bit of money.
If you... (read more)

The shop was well stocked for everyday need. the drinks in the bar were not overpriced like many campsites. The evening entertainment was rubbish !! The bar area smelt. The chalet had to be cleaned by me as the worktops, bathroom and crockery were filthy. The floors looked as if they hadn't seen a mop for months. I was very disappointed with the state of the chalet as on first approach the site looked very good. (read more)

A good thing was that it was only a 1.5 hours drive from Mid Suffolk. However the chalet smelt, the chalet was very grubby, the sofa bed was filthy and very uncomfortable and stank, the carpet was heavily worn and stained, there were cigarette burns on the bathroom floor, the main restaurant was too dimly lit, the food was bad and the service was very slow. I would not recommend. (read more)

The worst ever holiday I've had in my life. Will not recommend anybody to go to this place at all. Felt misled by the leaflets, brochure and website. The place is so disgusting, bedrooms are filthy, staff not friendly. I requested some cleaning services at 12.00 midday, just to hoover the floor and duty manager assured me that the cleaner will be around shortly. However the cleaner was sent at 2000 hours when my two kids were sleeping. My three year old got hit with a stone on the playfield... (read more)

We went to Pontins in Hemsby and our children 9, 5, 3 and 6 months enjoyed our week here immensely. This is definaiely a family holiday resort and the place feels safe for children, with no gangs of teenagers or drunks lads parties. The main plus point is the evening entertainment. Our 3 older children would disappear on to the dance floor from about 6:30 each night to join in the kids club - with games and characters and dancing - only reappearing for the occasional top up of juice or...

I just recently came back from Pontins Hemsby and I had the best time ever! The entertainment was fantastic and there's so much more entertainment in the day for the kids and even adults. The only problem I had was that the bar didn't stay open long enough but that's down to the guests! The bluecoats are amazing, so much so I am going to audition for the job next year! (read more)

Personally, I think the night time entertainment at Pontins in Hemsby is great! We took our 5 year old son and 3 year old niece, and we didn't see them for the whole night because they were down at the front of the stage (where you could see them) having so much fun, and joining in with the fun and dances. I think the smoking areas in the fun factory are messed up with smokers at the front and non-smokers at the back. Why not split the room in half? It is not a problem if you are a smoker,...

Pontins needs to come into the 21st Century and spruce the place up a bit. Spend some money and get the parks back on track. Hemsby is the worst Pontins I've been to and won't be going back. (read more)

Pontins Hemsby: Bands should be playing to full audiences but coming on at 11.30pm most people had gone to bed, brochure states that activities are for adults and children but on arrival got told only 16 years and under, a big disappointment for us young at heart, needed cleaners to come and clean what they should of done in the first place, then they only hoovered and left the same cobwebs and dirty cups where they were.

I think the state of the chalet at Pontins Hemsby ruined it for me. The oven door fell off in my hand. The bed was so uncomfortable we ended up sleeping in the kid's room. I wrote to complain but never heard back from them. I hate to think what the budget accommodation is like!! (read more)

Pontins in Hemsby (Beach Rd) is alright if you're just taking the kids for a break from being at home. But if it's just to try and relax, there's not much chance. There's always stuff going on. The discos always carry on until the early hours.
Just down the road is the beach. Most of the time the red flags are out so you cant go in the water, but when you do get the chance its really fun.
Back at the centre they have a hire place where you can hire all kinds of stuff. From ironing boards to... (read more)
