“Indoor swimming pool ”

Written on: 23/08/2017 by omThorpe128 (1 review written)

Liked the park and the caravan. Big let down was the indoor pool which was too small for the amount of people at the site. It was only open for a few hours so was very crowded. The changing rooms were small and you had to wait to get one and wait again when you came out of the pool. The pool was rather tatty looking and the whole place looked neglected. A big part of our holiday is using the pool so we won't be back because of this Shame really!… Read Full Review

“ownership”

Written on: 09/01/2016 by 149McNulty (1 review written)

We bought our first caravan a little while ago,after about a year we upgraded so we were excited,however when we were offered around a third of the price we paid for it we were surprised.However we decided to go ahead with our upgrade which meant taking out a loan,which was ok and then to our surprise our old caravan was on sale again at nearly another 2000 pounds higher than we originally paid for it so in all this company has made around10 thousand pounds at our expense My advice is don't buy… Read Full Review

“Never Camp/Tour Here”

Written on: 15/08/2014 by Alannaht387 (1 review written)

We arrived here at 11am on 12th August 2014. We couldn't go on our electric pitch till 12pm so went to the local Morrisons for supplies. Having been here before a few years back in a caravan we knew what was here. This is where our holiday went wrong. The site was rammed they tried to put us in a pitch which was prone to flooding. The tourer next door had dug out a verg as they got flooded in their awning quite badly. The couple told us this. Straight back to reception. They kept us waiting for… Read Full Review

“You get what you pay for... Right? ”

Written on: 14/08/2013

I live a few hours away from this resort and getting there was a bit on a nightmare. If you are unfamiliar with Kessingland then a Sat Nav would be pretty handy as there are no signs until you're practically standing in the park itself. We waited in reception as we had arrived about half an hour before they would let us have our keys to a chalet, staff were nice enough to let us have them early though so that was nice. The staff are pretty friendly too. Opening the door, a surprise awaited… Read Full Review

“Would not recommend”

Written on: 17/04/2013

We stayed on the touring field, as you arrive there is an overflowing skip and it looks quite a mess. The swimming pool leaves a lot to be desired and the photos on the website are very misleading. I agree with the previous review, really needs changing rooms, there is nowhere near enough room and no privacy. it is a real shame as it would take quite small things to improve this park greatly. The staff were EXCELLENT and the showbar immaculate but the rest of the standard of cleanliness… Read Full Review

“NOT VERY NICE.”

Written on: 06/04/2013

Went for weekend with family firstly checking in was late had to wait around for a long time my caravan furniture needed updating was old torn and tatty. my grandson had a bit of trouble to stay above water in the pool and the life guard called to other people too help him instead of dive in themselves.(not much of a lifeguard) and as for the changing room they really need cubicles getting changed in the same room really is not a nice thing. would not like to stay at this park unless… Read Full Review

“much better than i expected”

Written on: 28/08/2012 by puzzlequeen (2 reviews written)

i booked this holiday through the sun newspaper and then read the reviews!good job i don't believe everything i read. our caravan was really clean, the beds were already made up, we were in a fantastic position with a sea view and had all the equipment in the kitchen we needed. you don't always get a microwave and a toaster when you book a basic caravan but we did. the weather over the bank holiday wasn't brilliant but we managed to use the outdoor pool a couple of times and when it rained… Read Full Review

“NEVER AGAIN please read before taking children”

Written on: 08/05/2012 by Carla999 (1 review written)

Me and my family went on a touring holiday to kessingland and its somewhere i will never go back to. First of all the field was totally flooded it was more like a swamp, when we went to the club house i was given a drink in a dirty glass still with lipstick on, the barmaid then tipped it into another glass instead of making a fresh drink. Then when we went for breakfast not only was the glasses dirty but so was all the knifes and forks they were that bad i had to clean them with a baby wipe… Read Full Review

“DON'T STAY HERE”

Written on: 28/08/2011 by mattij70 (1 review written)

What can I say !!!!! absolute disaster !!! my main holiday of the year ruined by these amateurs !!! Really looking forward to spending a week with my wife and 4 kids but the caravan (Silver grade)was disgusting, spent the first 1.5 hrs cleaning the utensils, surfaces, table, sink, bathroom. My kids spent 20 mins walking about inside the caravan and their socks were BLACK ! We were situated right behind the outdoor pool and all through the night I could hear the generator whirring away. Went to… Read Full Review

“Great few days away!”

Written on: 21/08/2011 by Blondie36 (1 review written)

We stayed here end of july 2011 for long weekend. 8 Of us in our party altogether ( 4 adults, 4 Children). We had a 1 bed chalet which was more than adequate for the four of us. Our friends had a caravan which again more than adequate for their needs. We loved the pool altho think the changing rooms should be made into cubicles as open plan was very intimidating for my 11 year old daughter!! Didnt use the on site eating facilites. Shop was usual camp site shop - expensive but there for… Read Full Review

“Good resort - glorious weather & friendly staff helped”

Written on: 07/07/2011

Jul01 - Jul04 2011. I would probably not return just because of bad memories - though caravan, staff and amenities good. We suspect the cafe's £2.09 breakfast gave us food poisoning. Would be interested to hear if anyone else has a similar tale? We stayed for 3 nights and 1 by 1 all of us became VERY ill with S&d while at the park. The only thing we all ate was the breakfast and little else through the day. I did a first think my 4 year old was carrying a bug from preschool that he'd passed… Read Full Review

“We stayed in a chalet for 7 days. It was disgusting,...”

Written on: 30/03/2011

We stayed in a chalet for 7 days. It was disgusting, there was mould in the bathroom, the curtains were hanging of the curtain rail, it smelt of dog wee, the chalet didn't look like it was cleaned when we got there. There were someone elses socks on the wardrobe. We only had 2 cups and 2 bowls when there was 5 of us there. We complained to the accomidation manager that this didn't look like the chalet on the website, and she said that they over-exagorrate on the website. I recommend no one to… Read Full Review

STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!

Written on: 25/10/2010 by saraann (1 review written)

O dear were my first thoughts. We stayed here for a long weekend through sun hols. I realise its almost the end of season but the whole park looks totally in need of a revamp! The pool was freezing so only went in this for 20 mins on the sat, apparently they had been having problems, just wish the girl had told us before we entered the pool!! The sports bar was shut so no ten pin bowling or darts. Everything else to entertain the kids seemed to be a £1, ie;snooker, air hockey..etc, so we spent a… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/10/2010

Camped here on a rugby tour with our junior rugby squad and parent, 12 electric pitches, shower room etc was fine, amusements excellent for the kids, pub Ok, beer a bit pricey, food was average and they ran out of a lot, fish and chip shop was fine. I am amazed that some reviews on here give it a bad mark. If you want better accommodation then go stay in a hotel and spend more money. you get what you pay for in life and all the poor reviews are probably by people who expect a lot for nothing… Read Full Review

I think you are a bit insulting to people who have complained. Yes you get what you pay for and no you do not expect 5 star accommodation but what you do expect is clean healthy accommodation.
You are obviously happy with what you got maybe your expectations are very low.
Park Resorts make a big play on there accommodation and friendly staff if this is not the case then they should say cheap and nasty then you have a choice. If you are happy to sleep with mould and dirt then good for you, I am not.
