“Great value weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Booked a 3 night break at California Cliffs to visit our student son in Norwich. Great value. Clean, comfortable accommodation at really good price. Booked a bronze caravan and found everything we could want for a comfortable stay. Used the bar which had a good atmosphere and reasonable prices. Lovely pool. Had a good weekend and will definitely go back. Had read some negative reviews but do wonder what some people expect from budget accommodation. We paid £69 for 3 nights. Very happy with what we got . Good value. Will definitely use again.

Room Tip: Had a bronze caravan. Great for 2, adequate for 4 , tight for 6

Me and my family (my wife and 3 year old child) stayed here for 2 nights over the weekend. The main reason for chosing this site was they appear to be the only company to offer 2 night stays. We had never said at this site but have tried most of the holiday parks in the area. On arriving the park was busy but we just managed to find a place to park. As we had booked a Silver caravan, we could book in from 14:30. Reception was easy to find and the staff were very helpful. Finding the caravan was easy as it was not far from reception. The caravan was clean and modern looking. Being October I had booked a Silver caravan due to the heating in every room. In the bedrooms this turned out to be small electric fan heats under the wardrobes. We was lucky to have nice warm weather, so not sure how well they would of worked if cold over night. The days we spent off site, so can't really comment on daytime activites. We had dinner on site both nights. Once from the Chip shop the next from the fast food bar across the road. Both priced well but food not up to much, get what you pay for I guess. My 3 year old really enjoyed the beech a small walk away. She also really enjoyed the night time entertainment. The bar was abit over priced but did do some good offers on jugs of beer, cider etc. I would say make sure you get to the club house early for a table. As this did appear a bit on the small side and must get very busy in peak season. Some sites in the area maybe do offer more on site but this was a nice short break and I would return.

Room Tip: I would choose Siver + due to the heating in every room.

Had a midweek stay with the family and everyone enjoyed themselves, we had a caravan and was offered an upgrade by the friendly helpful staff and the price was good, great entertainment for my teenage boys and swimming pool was nice and the boys used the outside waterslide as the weather was nice, the park itself was clean and lots to do for the whole family and the beach is walkin distance and beautiful we would definatley stay there again.

Had an excellent week at california cliffs with my family we booked a disabled unit which we were told we could check in at 1:30pm but we managed to get checked in by 1pm. (bonus) Reception staff were very helpful by giving us our welcome guides and directions to our accomodation one lady named danielle in particular.
We arrived at our caravan wheelchair acess was perfect for my wife, caravan was spotlessly clean and well equipt only one slight hiccupthe following morning we didnt have a frying pan but that was soon resolved by a young lad.
evening entertaintment was very good. entertainers deffinatly deserve a bonus this year!
food was reasonably priced and large portions and serving time was within reason.
didnt go into the pool myself but grandchildren had a lovely time in there.

we will most deffinatly return here next year for our family holiday!

Just had a week at california cliffs. Got to comment we had a bronze caravan because we took our dog. We have to say it was very clean and well equipped. check in was quick and easy. Blonde lady in reception was very helpful and informative. We enjoyed the pool. Entertainment was typical holiday park style. Food was average but very slow service. All staff very friendly. All in all enjoyed our week. Would return.
