“Had a great time, best yet”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Stayed for Xmas, been going to Hengar for the passed 6 years, this year has been the best yet, all the staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The entertainment this year is better than ever, the 2 entertainers really did a fabulous job, our kids made us go early every night into the venue for mini disco, but there was always something on for everyone, the quiz night was very entertaining, The Go active team are great, loved the archery, felt like robin hood and the kids loved the waterwalkers good value for money to make us all smile. Had food in both restaurants and is good value as usual. Swimming pool was a bit cold but once you get used to it your okay. We are planning to return for another break in spring, can't wait.

Room Tip: Perfect location for travelling around Cornwall.

Myself and 9 members of my family went here at the beginning of the summer holidays and had a lovely time. I had visited hengar manor 11 years previous and not much has changed which is why it could do with a big touch up. The pool area looked tierd and tennis court looked unloved. The entertainment in the evening was cheesy but great if you have a young family. The grounds are still beautiful and great for walking round to tiring my young nephew out.
We stayed in a 3 bedroom lodge which is very basic and had wore carpets, lumpy pillows and the linen was infact stained with what looked like blood!
If you pick the right time of year you can get a bargain price which is worth staying for.

Myself and Family stayed in lodge number 13 which was very clean and tidy but also very dated looking.
We found all staff on resort very friendly, but it has to be said about the high standard of entertainment provided in the evenings by Lisa and her husband Adrian, they are fantastic with the children and adults nothing was to much, party games were varied from night to night so the children didnt get bored, which ours never did they were really entertained all week and when you have happy children you have happy parents. When we read there was a james bond evening we were a bit sceptical but it was great, a real change from any other entertainment anywhere else we have been, everyone could get invovled, it was obvious to us that Lisa and Adrian are good at there job and truly enjoy what they do, would defiantly ruturn if they were still entertaining.
New years eve was a good night, it was started with lisa and adrian entertain the children at the tables which was fantastic the kids picked which ballons they wanted and then had them made for them, but it has to be said they had a diffenerent person doing the disco and he sat on his chair all night and didnt get involved with anyone!!.
The pool is clean and good entertainment for the kids by day but is a bit too cold.
We had a hot tub with our accomodation which was great is supposed to be a 6 person hot tub but to fit comfortably i would say more like a 5 person, but it was very clean and serviced everyday.
Overall the holiday was good but the one thing that would defianltybring us back for another break would be without doubt Lisa and Adrian they really give Hengar Manor a fantastic reputation.

Room Tip: weather going for a family break, adult break, or just as a couple i would recomend choosing accomad...

I am in Hengar Manor at the moment and feel compelled to say that all the worries I had after reading some of the reviews have turned out to be unfounded. I was extremely apprehensive about what we would find here!
We have a Manor Lodge with hot tub, it's immaculately clean and has all the necessary utensils you could need. The lodge has been a little too hot overnight but thats our fault for not sorting the heating before we went to bed! Beds are comfortable and bedrooms a really good size compared to other lodges we have stayed in.
The hot tub is fantastic, again very clean and well looked after. The staff are all friendly and very obliging. They made us feel very welcome on arrival and after a long drive that's a nice touch I think.
The drinks are very reasonably priced and actually cheaper than in our local pub! The mini disco was really good, quite low key but the children loved the games and dancing with the very nice Lisa who made them all feel special with a kind word for all.
The pool is a bit cool but once you're in it's lovely and not overly busy even today, New Year's Eve when the park appears to be at full capacity...in fact nothing feels over crowded which I like.
I won't hesitate to return. We have come as a group of 17 and we have all said the same. We have stayed in several lodges and these may not be the most modern but they are clean and comfortable and the whole site is good and family friendly. Highly recommended by us all.

We have been to over 5 different hoseasons lodge sites and this was defiantly not one of the best.
The lodge was ok, very basic, we stayed in a hengar manor lodge which sounds very grand, however it was very basic, a oven which looked like it came from the 70's, no dishwasher (which I know wasn't advertised but is usually standard). The carpet was really dated and worn. The living area was a good size and the furniture ok, was well used but clean. The bathrooms were nice and clean and showers good. This was defiantly the most basic we have stayed in, we were given a washing up cloth and a scaurer but nothing else, not even an oven cloth or tea towel which we have always been given elsewhere. I was surprised with this accommodation, having a hot tub, that no bath mat was supplied to put on the bathroom floor for catching drips after use and so the tiled floors got very wet and slippery.
The heating (storage heaters) were ok could have been a bit warmer but we couldn't adjust the controls as they had previously been snapped off.
The pool on site was freezing, which was such a shame as we were really hoping to make good use of it, however after 20 minutes of trying to keep warm my toddler was shivering like made and we had to get out, so we didn't bother again & stuck to our hot tub.
The restaurant was dire, the seating around the entertainment area was ok, but the quieter bit which we chose to use was thilthy, the material on the padded benches and seats was black with so much use. The menu was pretty good, a little on the expensive side, but the food was below average and my husband was really disappointed with his watery chicken tikka, especially after waiting over half an hour with a 2 & 5 year old for it to arrive!
We had initially gone into the restaurant to order takeaway, but the menu was limited and the prices were the same as if you ate in, hence our decision to eat in.
So in the end I had to cook most evenings unless we ate out somewhere at lunch time, which wasn't really what we'd hoped as was supposed to be a break (especially away from cooking) !!

The other thing was everything was so far to get to you had to drive at least half an hour to get anywhere, we did visit Padstow and Newquay which were nice but bodmin was no so.

My parents stayed at the same time as us in a caravan, it was disgustingly filthy and the heater had been ripped off the wall in the main bedroom. My Mum had to go and ask for another heater, it felt damp as hadn't been stayed in for months (not surprisingly!) The bedrooms were ok but the seating in the lounge was black it was so dirty and the bar fire in the lounge was too dangerous for kids. Shame as it had a nice lake setting but really should be condemned as someone else commented In their review!

We have stayed in Devon in two other hoseasons sites which were much nicer and more reasonable. Finlake has the same facilities and is of a much higher standard, and we stayed in one near ilfracombe which didn't have any facilities but was a much nicer modern and well kitted out cabin & close by to takeaways and restaurants.


So if you don't mind basic for an executive price, a cold pool, dirty restaurant and having to travel miles to get anywhere stay here!

Oh and the last thing.....
I got home hoseasons emailed me asking me to fill out two feedback forms over the Internet, the links didn't work so I emailed them only to be told they didn't do feedback on the net anymore there feedback links no longer work and to email them with any comments. So they are happy to take your money, but neither Hoseasons on Hengar Manor care what you think about the place or are interested in any improvements that could be made!!

We have just returned from a weekend at Hengar Manor. We stayed in a 2 storey 4 bed lodge which was very comfortable. I cannot praise the staff highly enough; the ladies on reception were very helpful and attentive, Sarah who ran the 2 children's clubs that my sons attended was very enthusiastic and clearly enjoyed being with the children, and even down to the cleaning staff I met at various times who were all chatty and friendly. The indoor pool has the benefit of a small but fast slide and a great plus I found were the changing rooms - private and plentiful. My only criticisms would really be down to the appearance of the lodges (now looking dated in style) and also that quite a few things were broken in our accommodation (door handles, drawer fronts, door locking mechanisms). But I would definitely return in the summer months to see what it is like at the height of the season and to make use of the lovely open spaces next to the lodges for my sons to play.

Room Tip: Number 33 has a lovely open space to the rear for children to play on. Upstairs double room is very...

We have just returned from a week ataying in the Garden view apartment at Hengar manor.
Firstly I would stay that the park itself is not too bad. The pool is good and the kids loved it, when they say it's a mini gym it really is, two treadmills, two rowing machines, two crosstrainers and yes you guessed it two bikes. The Italian restaurant is nice but the other described to us as a brewers fayre type place is very average. Hengar Manor is in an excellent location for visiting all areas of Cornwall.

Now for the garden view apartment, it is described on Hengar manor's website as new for 2012, what a joke. as you walk in the door the smell of damp and mustyness hits you. It is true that the place appears to have had a lick of paint, unforunately all the woodchip wallpaper that is peeling off the walls has simply been painted over (it is still peeling off the walls). The lounge has a new carpet but not very well fitted, all the other carpets are old and dirty. There is a lot of what appears to be second hand pine furniture with two double wardrobes in the main bedroom, unfortunately with only a total of three hangers between them. There are numerous cracked windows which have simply had masking tape put on them to hold them together. The kitchen is out of the seventies and not very clean. The shower in the bathroom needs gravity to assist in getting the water to you, it is pathetic. There are two storage heaters in the apartment which basically don't work, there were two el;ectric heaters which also didn't work so we got them swapped. There was no heating whatsoever in the second bedroom where the kids were sleeping, we had to put the oven on to get any sort of warmth in the apartment. The outside light mentioned in previous reviews still doesn't work and nothing was done to fix it whilst we were there.

My advice would be that if you have booked this apartment, swap for something else. If you are thinking about booking it, please don't.
