“This caravan park is not the best that i have seen to buy a holiday caravan at”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

I viewed the caravan park looking to buy a holiday caravan here .. i first met up with the sales lady who could not be more unhelpful and would go so far as to say did not seem to want to sell one on a cold sunday morining when the park was opening up in a few days time for the summer season and i was a cash buyer my friend also thought the sales lady was unhelpful to i did visit the park three years ago this does not mean that i am a time waister most people would look at the holiday park more and once before buying first ..the caravan park could of been made to look nicer and the burnt out caravan that was near where i would of gone on the park pitch should of been removed ..if the grass was cut and some plants put around the park it may look more like a holiday park atmospheare it was defernetly not as nice as the park was three years ago and would not rate the park as 5 star only 2..or 3 at the most l

The title says it all really. There is nothing essentially wrong with Riverside, it's ok. But then there is nothing outstanding either. The caravan was clean and warm, but when you looked closer you started to notice the faults.

The kettle dribbled hot water everywhere, the grill on the cooker didn't work, the top step to the caravan door was broken, the bath mat was very dirty, the tv gave out a high pitched whistle, the ice box in the fridge had to be jammed shut, the main table in the caravan had a wobbly top. None of these taken individually are major problem but they give a general impression of being run down.

As I said none of these are major issues but when you paid for something in good faith you're left feeling a little let down. Most of the caravans seem to be used by the owners and you do sometimes get the feeling that you are intruding into a private club, especially on the children's entertainment side of things

Also, as a keen fisherman, when staying at somewhere called Riverside you would think that you would have access to a river but sadly this was not the case. The river turned out to be a reed infested, litter strewn drain with no bankside access.

However, I must admit that before we arrived we emailed for some information and the customer service was second to none.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

visited 1st september for a week, had to come home a day early,on arrival at the park it is very clean and operated by a barrier system for entry/exit,though this stopped working....nice site and bigger then you think....reasonable sized amusement arcade and the club room is much bigger than first impressions give from outside. There is also the schooner bar,where adults only are allowed,this is great to get away from the kids....indoor and outdoor heated pools...The park is well kept,van was nice and clean and big, small widescreen tv with built in dvd....24 hour tesco right on your doorstep and a sainsburys opening for the winter,so will be there next summer, bogonr regis sea front and shops are literally less than five minutes drive in the car and within walking distance if you fancy a drink........worthing and brighton within easy distance for visiting....brighton is lovely with a great pier and beach,loads of shops and cafes...really nice....good base for your holiday and well priced too......we enjoyed it and would recommend it...

Stayed September 2012, traveled as a couple
