But many points to be raised.
Firstly we booked the standard (St. Andrew's no 42) accom. for 7 nights from 6th May onwards.
Arrived at the park at 17.30 to be greeted by a superbly professional receptionist.
Got to the caravan, sure it was a bit dirty and all the cutlery needed to be washed, but it was certainly satisfactory and given the circumstances, lack of equipment and time the cleaners certainly have a difficult enough job without being slated on here. (Unless necessary ;-) )
Bed unfit for purpose, too small, springs digging in back, hired linen itchy and didn't fit and was generally uncomfortable.
The window in the bedroom was covered (use the term loosely) by two curtains that might as well not have been there - their usefulness could be compared with that of a chocolate BBQ. Let in light from first thing in the morning - also, the caravan was allocated with the bedroom window right in the path of a bright white streetlight! Annoying or what? Definitely.
The next point which was totally unsatisfactory was the lack of draught excluder from the front door - it was bloody freezing; even in standard accom. is it too much to ask for a curtain over the door? I think not; not when you consider the money these folks are making.
Entertainment totally poor. Facilities, poor (at best) Amusement arcade satisfactory but prize tokens can be exchanged for goodies from the cheapest nastiest looking £ shop in town. Not good, but kids did seem to enjoy it. Swimming pool filthy.
Didn't seem to be much in the way for little kids so I could see boredom setting in but for couples it was absolutely ideal; peacefully set with buses in to Musselburgh and the city every few minutes. A very good location, if you're going in to Edinburgh or North Berwick/Berwick indeed. We went to all of the above and had an Excellent time in them all for different reasons respectively.
Travelling around the park lots of the accom. is absolutely splendid, give it a try when it's cheap for a week and go in with mid-low expectations and you will not be disappointed - go in and expect the Ritz and you might just be.
Spar shop on site unfit for purpose, too expensive, rude staff and poorly presented lack of stock. Just go to Tesco/Haldanes/Aldi/Lidl/Co-op all within 5 miles.
All in all a very good stay with some not so good points, some very damn good points and other terrible points but please do go there and see it for yourself. Take your own linen, enjoy the peace and location and go to the sea without the sounds of the arcades ruining it.
My honest opinions above.
