Friendly staff. Amenities quite alright. Nice grass tent site. Takeaway on-site. Coin operated hairdryer in the bathroom. Free WiFi. Good value for a £12/night tent pitch. Would definately stay here again.

We had a lovely week in one of Hilltops hired caravans from 27th July - 3rd August. Caravan was gorgeous and like brand new. Immaculately clean with everything you could need inc bed linen, towels and a food starter pack. They also supplied us with a highchair and travel cot for our 7 month old. All hire caravans also had decking and patio table and chairs which was a bonus, plus free wi-fi. Really close to portrush town centre, a few minutes by car. Would definitely stay again and would fully recommend to anyone.

It has been a lot of years since I stayed in a caravan park as my last experience in Kellys in Portrush was not a good memory but Hilltop restored my faith in this type of family break.

The caravan was spotlessly clean, modern & had great facilities. There is a decent amount of space between the caravans and we did not hear any noise from any of our neighbours.
It was nice to know that a night watchman is on duty should any problems arise.

The staff were friendly & helpful. The caravan park is in a quiet location & the cafe was a welcome bonus.

I would definitely recommend Hilltop & you would know they were family orientated and not just all about profit.

We booked one night for our campervan "in" the campsite. However the site seems exclusively given over to static caravans. The space for campervans and caravans is on a (fairly depressing) stretch of concrete outside the campsite wall. Other than the ability to plug our electricity in, we might as well have camped on the side of the road. Actually I would have taken than trade, at least then we could have found somewhere with a nice view and minus the rubbish/dog excrement on the concrete 'site'. Give it a miss - there looked to be far nicer campsites nearby.

BlairsCaravans, Manager at Hilltop Holiday Park, responded to this reviewResponded August 7, 2013

'Hilltop Holiday Park' is the main caravan site for touring caravans, with designated pitches and facilities for tourers, motor homes and campers. 'Blair's' which is the site being mentioned is a static caravan site owned by Blair's Caravans for privately owned caravans, it is not a site for touring caravans, however some customers do prefer to park up on the concrete yard on the outskirts of the site (former sales yard) as it is slightly closer to the coast. Blair's is an option for touring caravan customers if they so desire to stay there, but it is not advertised as a touring caravan site.

I agree with the previous comments about the play park, my baby came away from the swing with rust all over his hands and I saw another parent was looking very concerned about the creaks coming from the seesaw. I see the manager is complaining about the cost of new equipment, nice to know the price he places on our children's safety.

My other complaints are £1 for a shower when we paid £22 per night for the pitch, also the water goes off every ten seconds so in theory you would have to press the button 60 times during the duration of your 10 minute shower. Plus, the pavlova in the cafe was old and the fruit on top was sad and withered. I gave it back uneaten. The only positive I can think of is that the staff were young and charming. We will not be returning to this site.

We were looking forward to getting away to the North Coast for the weekend to have some family time and enjoy the sunshine. We phoned several campsites in the North Coast area to book a site for our tent the week before we left home, but all their pitches were already booked - then we phoned Blairs and were told "No problem, you don't even need to book. Just come on ahead" We soon found out why.

Arriving at Portrush, we went to Blairs (whose number we had phoned) only to find it was now a static caravan site with no camping, The office was closed and there was nobody around. A resident informed us that the office there was no longer used and we should go to Hilltop Holiday Park as Blairs also owned it and we could speak to someone there. The lady on the phone had not told us this!!

We found Hilltop and were pleased to be given a pitch on the "Family Campsite" as we were camping with our toddler. Unfortunately it turned out to be nothing more than a patch of grass in the middle of the site, surrounded by roads with traffic constantly coming and going. It wasn't safe for a toddler and it was already very full, but with no other options, we had to stay. We squeezed our tent onto the last clear patch of grass and headed into Portrush for an ice-cream. When we got back there were easily another half dozen tents squished into the site, so close together that there was no space for our son to play outside the tent. There was also a tent in the space outside our tent where we had parked the car earlier in the day. The site was very noisy after dark, although we had been told the "Family Campsite" was meant to be quieter.

The facilities at the site are terrible. They would be ok if you were in a static caravan with your own toilet, shower and water supply, but there has been no thought for campers in tents. There wasn't even a tap where we could get water and the facilities for washing dishes were poor - obviously they expect you to eat out every night. There are only 5 showers and toilets for the hundreds of people on the site and they aren't even clean. You have to pay £1 for 10 minutes in the shower and there are so many people on the park that there was a queue for the showers from 7am! Thankfully we were up at 6.30, but the showers were so hot that we were unable to shower our son (the temperature is fixed for "safety reasons" so you can't alter it)

We were so disappointed in this site. We have stayed on excellent campsites who clearly value their campers and have put a bit of thought into their facilities. Other sites have communal fridges where you can store food or freezers where you can freeze your icepacks for your cool box, plugs where you can recharge you phone (for free - if you want to use the 1 plug socket in Hilltop's toilet block, you'll have to pay), proper pitches so there is no overcrowding and green areas away from traffic where kids can run around. Hilltop had none of these things, but thats hardly surprising when the facilities they did provide were so basic. We left after one night and were glad to leave it behind. If you are planning on taking a tent here, don't bother!
