On arrival you would expect to go straight to reception to collect your keys, no?? No, here you get sent to the "building with the red roof". So, off we went to collect our keys at 4:00....along with every other person that had to wait until then. The "building with the red roof" was the Club House. People were queueing at one side of the club house for food and there was us looking lost and confused, at the other. We asked the Barman what to do and he picked up the phone at the bar and ten minutes later one of the receptionists came along with packs for us all.
Got to our caravan using a map provided. It was a lovely Bronze caravan 3 bed. Got the gas fire going and the dog found his place in front of it! Kids wanted to use to the arcades. One of our party asked about the water activities and wanted to book one in particular. Nobody got back to him on this. Disappointed.
Later that evening we noticed the toilet floor was wet and nobody had been in there. Later found out to be the toilet leaking. Nice. Luckily a friend fixed it because I had read the reviews about maintenance being slow on here. The weather was absolutely freezing so fire was on constantly. You are provided with one heater and luckily we had brought along another. Even the heaters could not warm that caravan up in the mornings. Absolutely freezing. The bathroom/shower, well, you have to be a size eight supemodel to maneuver in and out of it. Nowhere to put your toiletries in the shower, therefore you have to open the shower door and flood everywhere! But saying all this, it seems we had the better caravan, many people were at reception complaining about theirs. Just my opinion, but this site could be so much better! Not alot to do other than arcades, so take lots of loose change!
