We stayed for a week as a group at Pontins. The chalet was clean and comfortable and even though we stayed in peak season there was no noise at night. This is a budget holiday but be warned parents, everything here is geared towards making your kids spend money. The cafe is at the back of an amusement arcade, and... More

Good location, Beach access, clean rooms, every possible facilities to keep the kids occupied. Breakfast and Dinner offered were not to shabby. We got a good deal on ebookers but worth checking the price at multiple sources before paying.There is a bus stop just right outside if one is keen on public transport and 61 can take you upto Norwich...

We visited Pontins on bank holiday weekend and it was so bad we can home a day early. The 'apartment' was dirty, there was cobwebs and even a dead bug in the corner, and mould around the shower. It was extremely basic, the bed was hard and lumpy so had a terrible nights sleep both nights. The canteen was beyond... More

On the plus side is the evening entertainment etc which we all enjoyed, meals are ok but no real care put into the prep of the food, some stuff undercooked and meats that were like cardboard. Acomodation was were the park really fails. Tiny rooms,... More

We arrived on the Friday, about 4 ish and queued for a couple of mlnutes and got the keys straight away. Found our chalet and walked in, to be pleasantly surprised by the... More

The food was OK but for the money its good. The park is... More
