“Great holiday!”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

We spent a week at the park and had a great time. Our caravan was brand new and roomy. The kids enjoyed the parks facilities and made lots of friends. Arcade and entertainment kept everyone amused in the evenings. Some good deals in the restaurant and the food was typical 'pub grub'. We enjoyed our holiday so much that we booked again before we left! Nairn is a great base to explore Inverness and the highlands from.

We stayed here last summer and paid a small fortune for a 6 berth caravan, now we have found houses to let in the town are cheaper to rent and much closer to everything the town has to offer. and lots more room to spread out. The site itself is a "good" walk from the small town, but the beach is literally on the doorstep, and what a beach it is. Wonderful long white sandy beach virtually all to yourself. The Holiday Park has a clubhouse featuring average entertainments every night, with kids entertainment on first, then something for the grownups after. We paid for a cocktail jug and the price compared to the spirits the bartender put in was very overpriced. The site has a small pool with a limited time placed on visitors, the pool is best visited late afternoon if you are adults on your own as is very busy with the children most days. All in all would not stay again due to the high cost of caravan hire.

The good points is very much the location which is fantastic, we were a stones throw away from a gorgeous, sandy beach and saw many a beautiful sunset. The site itself is clean, tidy and in a good location for exploring surrounding area and the pizza parlour on site serves nice pizza.
I have to very much disagree with the previous reviewer regarding security. Entertainment passes are not requested to enter the complex (only time you will be asked to see them is if you are lucky to win at the bingo!). During our holiday it was concerning to see very young children who are allowed to wander around the complex with little to no adult supervision especially when security staff do not appear to take responsibility of ensuring children are kept safe. There are two entrances at reception, one doors leads into the amusement arcade and another to the main hall and the main reception is not always manned therefore security clearly is lacking.
What tainted our holiday experience was unfortunately the attitude of some of the staff who can only be described as rude and unhelpful, other staff members were more friendly and accommodating. As a family, we have visited numerous caravan parks and the entertainment on this holiday was not great, both children and adults were clearly bored with the repetition of the same old set up each night. On one evening the 'star caberet' was just your average, karaoke pub singer accompanied by a male who was pretending to play guitar, if I had paid the £750 Parkdean were looking for to book a caravan thru them I would have been sorely disappointed at how they advertise the facilties on offer. For example to play a game of pool it will cost you £1 per game however staff were unable to provide any chalk for the bevelled cues and the table top is badly in need of being replaced. Other activities 'available' include swimming lessons but these activities are chargeable and appear to be cancelled on a whim, the walk on water my kids loved however this is very expensive at £5 for a five minute session. The arcade itself is small and the usual variety offered, swimming is only available to book on the hour and on our first attempt to try it out the kids were disappointed when they were not allowed entry due to it being too busy. On our second attempt we arrived ten minutes early but were told we had to wait as swimming bands are only handed out on the hour on a first come first served basis so make sure you keep your space in the queue. The swimming pool itself is fine however the changing areas are poor and in desperate need of upgrading and decoration, for example the ceiling area is covered in black damp patches, it is a shared communal changing area however there are several cubicles unlockable with broken locks on both them and the lockers. You should also expect to queue for shower and changing facilities as the sessions crossover with swimmers leaving and entering at the same time on the hour! A sauna is also advertised as available however this is barely warm. Overall, I would only recommend booking this site privately for a much lesser cost and using the site as a base only to explore the beautiful surrounding area.

Room Tip: Book privately

We have stayed here twice and really enjoyed it both times. The park is right by a wonderful beach, the Culbin Forest and an RSPB reserve. It is also within walking distance of Nairn. There is a small indoor pool and a paddling pool for toddlers along with a park area. We didnt use any of the other facilities so can't comment on them. The campsite makes a great base from which to explore the Cairngorms and surrounding area. Had a bit of problem with the admin side of the booking but we will definetly visit this park again.
