Kenegie Manor Holiday Park
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We arrived, we were checked in within 5 minutes, the Cottage was spotlessly clean (seemed almost as new inside) and proved a very comfortable home from home. It was fully equipped with all we needed (excepting towels but including widescreen freeview TV for the REALLY RAINY DAYS we had) and by comparison with perhaps its main competitor, the owners of these cottages really care about their property and maitain them well. We had one very minor problem which was resolved almost within minutes by Paul the manager and we cannot rate this Holiday Park high enough. There is an indoor pool with sauna, a (small) games room and on site pub which served meals in the evening. It is 370 miles from our home but we will return and we do recommend it to anyone - if you think this is unreal you may contact me to check!

Thank you so much for lovely accommodation at your park. We had one or two things that needed attention when we arrived but these were immediately seen to. We were very impressed with how well the apartment was equipped, especially the kitchen. I also want to thank the honest and trustworthy housekeeping staff as I left behind 2 rings and these were handed in and sent back to me in the post immediately. What wonderful service, thank you again !! We certainly hope to come back soon !

We have stayed at Kenegie Manor several times and been allocated various 'Old Court' chalets. The standard of the actual accommodation does vary as some of the chalets have been updated by their owners. This year our chalet did not have double glazing but was clean and comfortable and the kitchen had been updated. This is a quiet site with lovely views over the bay. We find it an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area and the staff at the park are helpful and friendly.
As mentioned by others, you do need a car as the site is on a country road outside of Penzance but, if like us, you holiday in Cornwall to visit the lovely St Ives, Porthcurno, Mousehole, Sennen Cove etc. it is ideal.
We frequently park in Penzance and take the bus from the bus station to Mousehole or St Ives. [Parking in St Ives is at the top of the town and involves a steep walk or bus trip back to the car park and Mousehole being a quaint and tiny fishing village, only has limited parking.]

We rented flat number 20 (in the actual manor house, not the holliday bungalows) and it was a very beautiful flat with a lot of light and great views; it was also very newly renovates to a high standard. The property is near enough Gulval and Penzance but you do need a car every time you go out as the road that leads to town is very narrow and not safe for pedestrians, not to mention very, very steep! The location is good to allow to explore the local area. There was free wi-fi in the flat but I understand that that is not the case for every property you may rent in Kenegie. The only disappointment for us was the swimming pool and sauna facilities. First of all, they are only open when most people are out, such as 10:00-13:00 and 15:00-18:00 (not sure about the exact times) when it would be nice to use the facilities after a long day walking around Cornwall. If you've had a good day, chances are you will not be back at Kenegie for the "last swin" at 5:30... Moreover, the swimming pool was very, very dated so it was quite a disappointment as it was one of the easons we had picked Kenegie Manor.

This is the second time we have stayed at Kenegie Manor, the first time we stayed we hired a cottage and it was brilliant, recently we hired a Bungalow in Park 10 and it was superb, private warm, comfortable, great value for money and clean and warm. The staff at KM are great and friendly, booking is easy and you have everything you could need. We will be back again next year for sure.

Room Tip: Property nearer the entrance to the park is quieter, but overall it's peaceful anyway.

We stayed in the old court booked directly with the owners. The accomodation was a bit basic and had an air of dampness about it. But it was clean. However the real issue was the thiness of the walls. You could have a conversation with your neighbours without going outside. The pool was ok but had strange opening times. Needs some cash spending on it as do the tennis courts. Overall average place desperately needing some tlc

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience at our holiday park. Most reviews paint a totally different picture, but we certainly do not ignore any constructive criticism and perhaps there are some areas that could be improved in the interest of future guests.

We have owned the park since 1998 and during that time you are the first person that I have heard comment on "thin walls". I had always been given to understand that these properties were built to housing standards.

Having read other reviews we ( my husband and myself ) really weren't expecting much. We can only assume we are not staying in the same place!!! We are just on our first day here and already are more than happy. Our park bungalow is immaculate, brilliantly equipped and VERY cosy. We were greeted and given our keys on arrival and immediately told " any problems come straight back and we'll sort them out". We have just returned from the. "pub" where we enjoyed a delicious and well prepared meal ( steak and the trimmings), beautiful. Very friendly place/staff. We are just looking forward to the rest of the week, and will DEFINATELY be returning.

I assume from your "expectations that you had read some negative reviews before you came. We simply do not understand why some people choose to post negative reviews, when all the staff work really hard to make everyone feel welcome.
