Stayed here for two nights and a good experience on the whole. Accommodation is basic but to be expected and although small can't moan about room too much. Very hot however which made sleeping uncomfortable. Activities were varied and of a good quality on the whole, however can be frustrating when the majority of activties are 2 person activties resulting... More

Spent a week with the kids doing more activities in one week than they probably do all year. Activities run into the evening 9-10ish if you have the energy. Staff is brill-- positive attitudes from everyone-even the catering staff. The buffet style food is good enough to get by, you generate good appetite from all the activities that you don't... More

Yes the food is basic, and yes the accommodation is basic, but what can you expect for the price? There are activities planned from morning until evening, there are bars if you just want a drink and there's a (heated) outdoor pool and games room if you have a spare moment. 99% of the staff are brilliant, the views are...

The whole week's experience was great on the whole. There were lots of pluses however, our shower was mouldy. Three time, I asked for it to be cleaned until something was finally done about it but not very well. The whole of the bathroom area needed redecorating, as it smelled dodgy all week. To be fair, we were offered another... More

Fantastic Holiday! Just come back from PGL Barton Hall, very near Torquay. I went with my wife and two children 7 and 10 years and we all loved it. It's a great location well worth staying an extra couple of nights to explore Torbay. We were on a long weekend Friday to Monday and we got absolutely loads done, 4... More

I thought it was a family resort only in the summer, was really enjoying our stay Then 4 or 5 coaches arrived of excited 12 year olds? Yes of course they were noisy they were excited. I was told PGL stands for parents get lost, great but there were families staying. I asked to move room to be away from... More

Just got back from what is undoubtedly the best family holiday we have ever had bar the trip to Florida and Disney. Yes the rooms are as basic as a youth hostel, yes the food was like being back at school BUT the rooms were spotlessly clean and the food was excellent quality and with two choices per meal plus...

Best holiday! Great weather helped. PGL staff were excellent as always. The food was great; good variety, balanced menu and lots of it. This was our third consecutive visit. The kids were really keen to go again and I was a bit dubious, thinking I would be bored. I needn't have worried, even doing many of the same activities again,... More

Don't expect much from the rooms or the food. Adequate 'chalet-style' rooms with bunk beds for the kids. Living out of your bags for the week. Filling grub, served up canteen-style. Nothing special, but nothing wrong with it either. Given all that is going on you will work up quite an appetite, but you won't go hungry. In fact I... More
