Me and my new wife took our 3 year old son here and it was ok, Reading through some of the reviews on here it seems we were lucky, We stayed in number 13 as well.
Very basic, Single glased rooms, Very cold and all the windows were wide open when we arrived which makes me suspect that there may have been a damp smell prior to us arriving, we never noticed anything whilst we were there.
The Laundrette is very expensive as is the food in the bar or "chefs corner" as they call it but I was quite upset with my Microvawed pastie as it was my first experience of a "proper" cornish pastie and it was obviously Microwaved as it was soggy. and from then on we just ate in every night, The Fridge (With built in freezer) and the Microwave Seemed fairly new but as for the rest of the appliances they were not, Looks like they took the cooker and kettle from my mums Kitchen sometime in the mid 90's.
The upstairs seemed like it had been "Bodged" together many years ago, the bathroom especially, The bedding seemed cleen but the bed was freezing and quite uncomfortable, There is NO central heating but the heaters that are on the walls wich were little or no use, my wife pulled up one of the sofas closer to the heater downstairs and still complained she were cold.
The Tv did work...On some channels mojority of them diddnt work, as we had a 3 year old we went to the "Foxy Club" until 8 then we headed back to the room. as for any repairs they were pretty shoddy, The little handle on the lock of the smallest bathroom in the world had obvioulsy been pulled/snapped/fell off and replaced with a screw. The Sofa was one of the most uncomfortable things I had ever sat on, Now we shall move onto the "Foxy Club"
Well it may have been the time of year we went but it wasnt so much of a club more like a Free for all for your Kids, The club started at 6pm and finished at 7pm all it is they put some loud music on and the lights for 3/4th of an hour and let the Kids run around While Barry Makes balloon animals (He was brilliant and a really nice guy, Hope he and his wife enjoy there retirement) then at around 7.45pm the curtains would open and out would come a Giant animal were there would be a song and a dance, Few photos and thats it. game over. the animal goes away and the kids can run around again whilst John fowler staff sells there Bingo Tickets.
There is an on site shop which did seem so stock the essentials Bread, Milk, Eggs, Bacon, Beer and the most expensive cigarettes I have ever bought in my life as I had ran out and had no choice. If you do stay here its very very very very very advisable that you drive as there is very little to occupy the kids during the day time and with Perranporth & St Agnes 2ish miles away there good places to take them as there is a beach at both and shops as the onsite one is open from 7am until 8.30am and again the same kind of hours in the evening (Times from memory)
But all in all like I said its OK, For what we paid it was liveable......Small & very basic but liveable, im just glad it was only a week we stayed and not the 2 we had initially intended on doing.
