“Could be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Stayed at Skipsea sands for 3 nights,in a Silver Plus. The caravan was good although the double bedroom was a bit of a squeeze very little room between the bed and the wall so if you tried to get up in the night it was a bit of a shuffle game. The park itself is very clean and we did have a parking spot right outside the van which was a change from other parks we have been to.We didn't use the club house as we ventured into Scarboro and Bridlington for the day and the kids were shattered when we got back so it was early nights. Kingdom the arcade is a bit of a let down, a lot of the machines were'nt working and it is quite small so the kids soon got bored. We did go bowling but they desperately need to get some more balls and they need to get the bumper things fixed, they use balls to keep the bumpers up so that limits the balls for game play. It cost £10 for an hour but when you have to wait for the same ball to come back the time soon goes, also there are not enough lighter balls for the kids and if all 4 lanes were in use there wouldn't be enough balls to go round. I don't think we will return to Skipsea Sands.

Room Tip: We had Northfield 331 which is about 70yards from reception and about a hundred yards from the enter...

Hello and thank you for taking time to post a review on trip advisor.
I am so pleased you had a lovely stay at Skipsea Sands I will pass on your kind comments to all our staff , it’s great to hear all their hard work creating amazing memories for your family is paying off .However the soft play at the kingdom is unfortunately a concessional price as we have no control over the prices they charge . I am really pleased you enjoyed you’re stay and hope to see you again in the near future .

We booked a 4 night stay in our motorhome hoping for a relaxing break. The touring park was fully booked even though it was end of Sept and the tents, campervans and caravans were packed in like sardines. There were some hedges separating the more expensive pitches but they didn't provide much privacy. The toilets didn't get cleaned whilst we were there so as the weekend progressed the toilets got filthier and filthier, not surprising since there were about 90 pitches being used. Poo was smeared up the wall of the first ladies cubicle. The chart saying that the toilets had been checked every so many hours was ticked and the bins did get emptied but that was it. We had our dog with us but found that apart from a narrow grassed dog walk dogs were not welcome anywhere else, although the local beach was dog friendly. The weather was lovely but the so called beer garden or smoking area was totally uninviting and more like a prison exercise yard, so we saved our money and had a few beers sitting outside our motorhome. I think the park is missing a trick not allocating a part of the bar as dog friendly as lots of people had dogs with them. The first morning we were woken before 7am by kids playing in between the closely packed tents, even though there was a lovely big play park nearby. The evening was spoiled by some campers leaving their dog shut in the tent while they went to the bar and the poor thing barked continuously until they returned at 1230am. We caught the bus to Hornsea from the main entrance but there wasn't really much there. Had a nice walk along the beach and went to the Freeport shopping outlet. We ended up only staying 3 nights and cant see that we will ever visit again.

Hello and thank you for taking time to post a review on trip advisor.
I’m sorry to hear that the standard of cleanliness was not to our usual high standard, this issue will be investigated and then the right action will be taken to make sure we keep it at the high standard we know it to be. As for the issue of the park been fully booked , we have an offer on which have been very popular and have been throughout our full season and even now at the end of the season we are still busy. We do aim to cater to animals, we have a special dog walk for animal owners and a beach no longer than 15 minutes from our complex ,they are also allowed on our touring field and in our bronze static caravans. As for allocating a place for the dogs it’s a comment we can take on board and look in to but we have to take in mind not everyone is not comfortable with the idea of dogs being inside the complex due to health and safety and insurance purposes but dogs are allowed in our beer garden . thanks again for taking time to post a review on trip advisor.

we stayed here for 4 days 23rd sept to 27th the caravan was fine as we had a dog with us so didn't expect too much .When we got there we had to wait 2 hours before we could get in we were told to go for a walk on the beach which was miles away and not easy to get down too .We went to the restrant for our evening meal on the first night never again the tables were dirty there was no lighting the food was swimming in fat or straight out of the microwave .There was no entertainment at night the drinks were very expensive so we stay away .When I booked the holiday I did it over the phone as I wanted to stay at cayton bay the lady on the phone told me they were fully booked but skipsea had space and it was the next door park .I don't know were she got next door from I think it about 20 miles away shall not be using this holiday company again.

Hello and thank you for taking time to post a review on trip advisor.
I am sorry to hear you’re stay with us here at Skipsea sands was not pleasant , however I understand you stayed in one of our bronze units which makes it a four o’clock check in. Unfortunately it's something that cannot be bought forward due to the scheduling of the housekeeping system to make sure all caravans are out on time but all facilities are of use to costumers when they arrive on site if you are early for you’re check in .
As for the cliffs we know the about the eroding of the cliffs is inconvenient but we do have another access which such a lovely walk and a great view which is still accessible from our site . In regards to the standard of cleanliness which was clearly was not to its usual high standard this issue will be investigated and then the right action will be taken to make sure we keep it at the high standard we know it to be and make sure this never happens again on this site . Thanks again for taking time to post a review .

Hired a 3 bed static home for the weekend with friends.
Accomodation was o.k.and quite spacious.
Bar, restaurant , entertainment, food and service were awful.
Filthy bar and restaurant. Dirty glasses , plates , everything.
Went down to the beach - awful , after 5 minutes we got in the cars and drove to scarborough for the day.
Very disappointing , will not be back to skipsea ever.
P.s.
checked out and told the man on the desk that the toilet seat was hanging off and had been since we arrived.
No apology offered , but asked if we would be booking for next year.
Obviously not.

four days spent at skipsea sands and to be honest it was much better than i expected,bronze caravan was very clean and comfortable,great wildlife on the park ducks,geese,pheasants and rabbits.kids entertainment was fantastic(carl take a bow) much more hands on than haven sites,swimming pool lovely and warm.
only negatives for me were the poor choice of beer in the bar(boddingtons urgghh) and there was no costa coffee although this is advertised on the website.
to all the moaners and groaners on here its simple if you want 5 star luxury stay in a hilton,skipsea sands is what it is and i enjoyed it
