“waterside holiday park”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

We have just returned from our break at this park and it was fantastic. Clean, small and friendly site and the staff were friendly and helpful with the adults and children. Most days were spent around the outdoor pool, which was great for the children, with brilliant lifegaurds Tom,George and Adam were fantastic.

Overall I know we shall be visiting again. The only point I would raise about this park is that it is very hilly but on the plus side you do get fabulous views across the bay

Thank you, kay446, for your comments. Like Sssarah123 you have mentioned in particular the friendly staff, especially the lifeguards, and how clean and tidy our lovely park is.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family back to Waterside soon. Thank you again for your review.

First visit and absolutely brilliant from the minute we arrived were made to feel welcome. As soon as we went to the pool Tom came over to us an introduced himself entertained the kids in the pool. Tom and George were great with the kids. Entertainment great and got everyone involved. Caravan lovely and clean. Restaurant excellent value for money and staff nice. Overall a great holiday and would definitely return.

We have just returned from a gloriously sunny long weekend break at Waterside Holiday Park.We booked from a newspaper promotion, opting for the silver upgrade. This is not our usual form of break but it was ideally located for us, at a ridiculously low price for July and to be honest - having read some earlier reviews at the March time of booking - we were very pessimistic and had sourced 3 local guesthouses with vacancies, if we decided not to stay.
What a surprise! The caravan was well equipped and immaculately clean throughout with virtually no sign of wear, appearing as if new this season, as did all others around us. All areas of the site that we observed were clean and tidy from good maintenance.
There are steep climbs to some caravans but luckily ours was on the flat. We had no time to try the outdoor pool but it looked very inviting, nice and well supervised. We did try the licensed cafe/restaurant and can recommend the food. The clubhouse has all the usual facilities with an entertainment program and team, who are exceptional and work their socks off.
From being pessimistic beforehand we left very impressed indeed with the Waterside experience and would definatly return - especially if the deal is repeated.

We, like yourself, are really pleased that you chose to holiday with us, and found everything to your liking. Media sites such as Tripadvisor are often used as a platform for posting negative reviews, very rarely are they used to compliment parks, guest-houses, hotels etc.

I would imagine that you will have been a regular reader of this site since you booked in March and will have notice how greatly improved the reviews regarding Waterside have been. We have a fantastic team here at Waterside, not only is the park very well kept, but we have good facilities, good food, a great range of beers, wines & spirits (and plenty of soft drinks for the kids), great entertainment and outstanding views.

We all hope to see you again soon bparkercars. Thank you for this wonderful review.

Hi Ozclaire, it is pleasing to read that all ages of your group enjoyed what we had to offer.

As with many, many other reviews you have highlighted the friendly staff and great entertainment team. Disappointing to note that you found the Bar Manager to be rude, you will notice a difference when you return.

Thank you for your review, see you in October.

We will never get a second chance at a first impression and what a first impression we have made on you, SianRebecca_xx. As with many previous reviews on Tripadvisor it's all about the entertainment!

I will be sure to pass this review, along with the many others we have received onto our dedicated Entertainment team. They always get a great boost when they read the wonderful comments our guest write about them - as do all of our team members.

Thank you for this review.
