Again we stayed at Gurnard Pines ,and again I will say it was excellent, when we arrived at the villa we did not have an outside table and we told the reception and it came 5 mins later. Then someone came to ask us if everything was ok with the villa which of course it was. Lovely stay, will definately... More

Very helpful staff, no complaints there. Lodge very basic. Dirty floor, tables, chairs and food up the walls. Limited cooking utensils and no tins or trays. We had a cracked sink and broken radiator in the bathroom. Dirty carpet in the bedroom with ants and earwigs for company! No facilities for young children, except monkey mansion,or much for adults.

What ever you do don't go to Gurnard Pines. We went thinking it was part of Hoseasons group as it's on their Web site. We complained to Gurnard Pines and Hoseasons about broken from door, panels rotten and wind and light coming through. Mould in bathroom. Dangerous wiring. Dirty carpet. Ants nest in bedroom. The list goes on. Hoseasons washed... More

Like others, I was expecting the worst having read the reviews, so was very pleasantly surprised with what I found; we stayed in a 3-bedroom, 2 bathroom lodge. Looked like it had been given a bit of a recent makeover with leather sofas and new curtains, comfortable beds and everything spotlessly clean. The pool and changing rooms were as good... More

Not sure what some people expect, but for what we paid (national paper promotion), this was excellent. Clean and with great facilities - two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen. Yes the furniture was a little 'distressed', but overall an excellent base from which to explore the island. Very quiet and peaceful - plenty of wildlife - saw... More

With some trepidation we arrived at Gurnard Pines. Previous reviews being mixed and rather poor. First impressions did not gladden the heart. The brick units look very tired and run down. However the units are fantastic! Ours was a three bedroom with decked verandah, recently refurbished, very clean and in great condition indoors. Good beds, good bathroom facilities (one family...

This was the second time we've stayed here. The first time we had a lodge which was very spacious. The last time we stayed in a brick built bungalow which was better than expected. It was clean and had everything we needed, even an ensuite. There's a 25 metre swimming pool on site which was very clean. No clubhouse but... More

We stayed at Gurnard Pines as part of a popular newspaper promotion and, from past experiences of these breaks and reviews on here, we weren't expecting much. However, we were quite pleasantly surprised. We were checked in by friendly staff at reception and were allocated a 3 bedroom lodge and it was clean, comfortable and spacious. The double bedroom had... More

This park is tired, run down and has a lack of any management effort to do anything about it. Expect central bins overflowing with rubbish, a playpark with nails sticking up, a central area with 'out of order' signs everywhere and row upon row of brick huts that they are careful not to show you on the website I agree...

We stayed here Aug 2013, in a Solent Villa 2 plus (hot tub), supposed to be the highest accommodation on site. OMG, where to begin, the hot tub was not working properly after several call outs, and it splattering out all sorts of crap, towards the end of the wk they finally drained it and refilled it so it worked....
