“Great Views”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Stayed here for 4 nights in the school October break. Stayed in a friends caravan so our accomodation was lovely with beautiful views over the Holy Loch. The Hunters Grill up at the reception area is fantastic, - we ate there a lot for breakfast, lunchand dinner. The staff were brilliant - very friendly and attentive. It was my 8 year old daughters birthday when we were there and they made such a fuss of her. The pool area is also great - really big and quiet everytime we were there. A sauna, jacuzzi and steam room for the adults too. The downsides are that you need a car just to get from your caravan to reception because it is so large its a long way away, - its also really dark and could get quite dangerous walking around at night, - take a torch so you don't trip up. The site is very poorly sign posted as well so it took us ages to find our caravan - the map is useless. The on site shop looks like its been stuck in a time warp in the 80's - very little stock and very expensive if you do find something yoindo u want to buy - and the nearest supermarket is Morrisons in Dunoon which is about a 15 min drive. Dunoon and the surrounding area is fine if you like the outdoors - beautiful scenery and walks but with a 70 year old and an 8 year old there wasn't much to do in the pouring rain. We went to Inverary Jail which is well worth a trip - so is the fab coffee shop in Inverary with huge cakes in the window to tempt you. Wouldn't rush back here unless I had a good idea of what activities to do before I went.

Stayed here for 3 nights with colleagues in a Deercroft chalet. The chalet, sparsely furnished, 3 bedrooms,was a bit dated dated , particularly the kitchen. No dishwasher or washing machine which is generally standard now in self catering accommodation. There is a laundry on site- which is a long walk to reception.Kitchen not terribly well equipped and grill didnt work. Bedrooms fine. if you have no car with you, be prepared for along trek to the chalet- and if you go at night, take a torch, the lighting is extremely poor and it is very difficult to find your way around the park, even with the aid of the map given at reception if you ask for it. Our (large) party arrived in the dark, with no onsite transport ( having come off a coach) and some spent almost an hour traipsing up and down roads, with heavy cases and food bags, before finding their chalets. Perhaps the management should organise some on site transport if required.... Ate twice in the centre, once in the grill which was fine. Other time was a mass catered dinner which was poorly served, small in quantity and more like a school dinner than a dinner worth £15.....Staff were nice however.
Very nicely situated but unless I had transport, I wouldnt go again.

We stayed at Hunters Quay for a four night break at the end of August. The site is located overlooking the loch and surrounded by greenery .The caravan was modern and well equiped . We had 3 bedrooms and heating in every room so it was very cosy. The bedrooms are not large but enough room if one person goes to bed before the other . There was a LCD tv with satelite and DVD if you stayed home in the evening. There is a club house with an decent restaurant / bar and entertainment at weekends .The pool area is good , two pools ( one for kids ) with jaccuzi and sauna . There is also a play area for kids . The site offers outdoors sports but we did not try any. Dunoon is a short drive away with some restaurants and shops , its not a big place . There is a large supermarket there so you can stock up for your caravan . All in all it is a good location to have a break and enjoy the Scottish countryside. While there we had a look at the new lodges with a hot tub on the deck , nice lounge area and kitchen they have 3 bedrooms with a tv in every room , tastefully furnished , might try that next time . We will be going back again.

Room Tip: Jura village is a good location not too close to the club area but not far to walk there

Just returned from a four night break, what a place. If you are wanting a place to chill then hunters quay is for you! We had a huge caravan with central heating in every room. Dunoon is nearby for a stroll along the shops.

We opted for a lodge instead of a caravan because I thought it might feel more homely and it did. It was nice and welcoming inside and very cosy in every sense.

We loved it here because it was a nice change, peaceful, the other guests seemed pretty friendly and even when it rained, everywhere - the surrounding area and even the plants and flowers roundabout our lodge - looked really nice and scenic.

Some points we noted were:
to buy fags in the bar/restaurant area would cost £8.50 and some packets only had 16 in them! We don't smoke but noted the price list sitting on the bar at night.

One afternoon we had a nice meal in the hotel near the ferry port. A nice hotel called Ghillies. The service was amazing, very professional, and the food was so scrumptious! The prices were fair too. Was lovely.

The shop on the caravan site closes at 7pm and while not extortionate the prices were still more than what you pay in local shops. The prices of drinks in the bar were - pint of Fosters £3.55, and a 25ml vodka with a can of diet coke was £2.95. The games area with pool tables and arcade/amusements closed at 10pm. The restaurant area where we had a few drinks at night ranged from roasting hot (unberable) to freezing cold. We're easy-going and not fussy but Tuesday we were absolutely frozen and Wednesday night we had to leave because our faces were bright red and we were uncomfortable.

They took a £40 deposit in case we lost our lodge keys but we got it back on the last day and they asked us to pay £5 per day for electricity (which we only noticed on the paperwork the morning we left home.) It cost us £20 which we felt was a bit expensive, especially when compared to what your bills are at home. That's like £150 per month for electricity alone!)

Our lodge had two bedrooms (one double and a twin), a wee bathroom with a decent shower, cooker (4 hobs), microwave, fridge-freezer, kettle, plates etc., we brought our own towels, washing up liquid, soap, cooking oil, paper towels, sponges/cloths etc. and good job too.

We used the sauna/steam room/jacuzzi etc. and enjoyed it. We were surprised we didn't have to pay any extra for this and it was nice.

Overall it's a nice, clean, friendly place to go where you don't have any noise or fuss. The cost of drinks and meals is a little bit steep but it was nice to have a few days there and we would definitely go back. We drove around a lot and had some tasty meals away from the park and it was just a really nice area to visit :)

Hunter's Quay and Dunoon
The park itself is located close to Dunoon, a short ferry ride from ‘the mainland’, since driving around would take a good while (look on a map). It’s very well located and very well kept. Everything was neat and tidy and for such a big park with so many families staying, there was no mess and very little noise. You can choose from wooden lodges or caravans to stay in. We didn’t spend much time in Dunoon itself. It’s a typical seaside town I guess, with all the necessary shops, a stony beach and a worn-out crazy golf course. The scenery around and about is pretty gorgeous though.

Accomodation
We stayed in a nearly-new 4 person caravan, although it could’ve held six at a push, as there was a pull out bed in the lounge that would’ve suited a couple of smaller children. Overall, we found it really very well-appointed, comfortable and well-equipped. There was a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, toilet and shower, kitchen/diner and a large lounge. Outside we had a large deck, although we didn’t use it. There was everything one would expect in the kitchen; microwave, hob, grill, oven, toaster and all necessary cutlery, crockery and utensils. The beds were made and were quite comfortable and there was plenty of wardrobe space. The lounge area was very comfortable, with a large flat-screen TV and DVD player. We plugged our hard drive into the TV to watch movies. There was also a gas fire, although the central heating was excellent. Overall, we were very pleased with the accommodation.

Facilities
The facilities are much improved in the last few years. There’s a new reception area with free WiFi and various mobile sellers of face painting, popcorn and candy floss, stick-on tattoos, etc.. There is also a good amount of comfortable seating. In the pool complex there are two 25 metre pools (one regular pool and one paddling pool), a Jacuzzi, a sauna and a stream room. The attached mixed-sex changing area also serves the smallish but modern and well-appointed gym. Next to the pool area there is a large entertainment lounge, with TVs, seating booths and bar suitable for families. Next door to this, there is a large fun zone with pool tables, air hockey, games and arcade machines and a toddlers’ play-zone with a large climbing frame thingy! Finally, there is a bar/restaurant with an outside seating area. Although we only ate here once, the food was very nice and reasonably priced. Also on site is a shop, although we did our shopping in Morrison’s in Dunoon.

Activities
The activities were organised by ‘Go Active’ and there really was a lot to do. We did archery twice, aeroball, bodyzorbs and raft-building in the park and we booked through Go Active to go quad-biking locally too. The Go Active people; Cameron, Jackie and Craig were really good and obviously well suited to their work. The activities were reasonably priced too, but with more than a couple of kids or more than one thing every day, the cost would soon mount up. There’s also lots to do and see locally, with loads of leaflets at reception.

Staff
Apart from the Go Active crew, we had little enough contact with the other park staff, but when we did we always found them to be very courteous and helpful.

Overall, we had a really good holiday here and even though the weather wasn’t exactly great, there’s a lot to do indoors and out to keep you busy. Even being stuck in your caravan is good, since it’s so comfortable. I’d definitely stay here again if we were coming back this way.

Room Tip: Bring a few bits and pieces that you wouldn’t buy often such as washing-up liquid, salt, pepper, etc...
