My husband, daughter and I booked this break through Sun holidays for May half term. First impressions were those of dread, disappointment and anxiety: cars and people everywhere. We upgraded to 'club' room and checked in within 15 minutes of arriving. We were handed bedding and a key for our room. Our accommodation was spotless on the inside but basic.... More

After reading the reviews me and my husband was dreading taking our 5 year old and 1 year old, but to our surprise we loved it, yes the accommodation is very dated, but it was clean, the children and us loved the entertainment and the swimming pool was lovely and hot, the only problem we had was the food was...

Came here with a large group on a rugby tour expecting the worst and wasn't disappointed. Complete dump that needs knocking down. Staff on the whole unhelpful., but they seem to employ care in the community people. Security staff overly aggressive and unfriendly. Understaffed for the bar and little options for food. Told no lunches available until 1pm and at... More

Having stayed in various holiday parks over the last few years with the kids you do learn not to expect too much! However, I expected a little more from Pontins as thought they were supposed to be the top notch company up there with the likes of Butlins. Check in was simple and easy. We paid for 'Club class' having... More

Checked in Mon 25th May and checked out Tues 26th May, it was a complete hell hole and more resembled a concrete jungle of unsafe buildings. The accommodation was appalling, holes in walls, feet missing from wardrobes so they were bolted to the walls to prevent them falling down, unclean crockery, bathroom was like something from the 50s, the sofa...

Dirty filthy windows, electric heater kicked in and not working, and the draw were broke in the cabinet, oh and Ants hundreds of them in our room. Come home early. Pontings you have crammed everyone in to sub standard accommodation, and taking our money under false pretences. Checking in was an hour and a half, and breakfast was an hour... More

I wish I had read the reviews on here BEFORE booking a 4 night break through The Sun newspaper. We have enjoyed numerous holidays through The Sun over the 25 years the scheme has been running. However, this place is the most disgusting, filthy hell hole I have ever seen. I read a recent review on here just now that... More

After reading all the bad reviews i was dreading coming to this place. Ignore all the bad reviews. Yes there are a few things that aren't perfect but I'd hardly call this place hell on earth as a lot of ppl have described it. Yes it needs a make over but our room was clean and practical. No complaints. Yes... More
