Kingsdown Holiday Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 28, 2013

My wife, 2 and half year old daughter and myself stayed at Kingsdown in July 2013 and enjoyed a great holiday. The park itself is well presented, clean, and a very safe, tranquil site (particularly for children). We found the staff friendly and helpful at every turn. We had been specified a bath in our cabin which our first cabin didn't have, however we were given a selection of other cabins to choose from and found an appropriate cabin shortly after. I think the majority of cabins are privately owned and then maintained and let out by the park so there were stark differences between the cabins in terms of décor etc (depending on owners personal tastes and budget) but all were clean and tidy. The park is popular with overseas visitors with many from France, Germany and Holland also staying (unsurprising given the location) which made a refreshing change on a UK holiday. The park is well located for walking to the nearby shingle beach and plenty of family day trips out are also within easy reach. Overall we thought it a very good value family holiday park which we wouldn't hesitate to visit again. A more obvious sign for the park from the road would be helpful when trying to find it initially!

Room Tip: The cabins do vary greatly in terms of their furnishings and décor as many seem to be privately owne...

Excellent and well kept holiday park with friendly and very helpful staff. Good, welcoming lounge bar with reasonably priced food and drinks. Lodge 38 was very well equipped and would have been comfortable if it had not smelled so musty and damp. Although the lodge was clean we were not able to unpack our clothes at all since the wardrobes/drawers, curtains etc smelled really unpleasant. Despite the much appreciated efforts of the park manager and cleaning supervisor in purchasing air fresheners etc the problem did not go away. What a disappointment!! We are not a fussy family and did not let it spoil our holiday, but it could have been so much better!

Room Tip: Suggest you avoid lodge 38 until furniture and fabrics are replaced and the lodge properly aired. Th...

Picked out Kingsdown Park at short notice from the Hoseason's website and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Kingsdown Park was clean and tidy and although an unusual shape, the "Sheds" or "Toblerones" as my teenage daughters quickly named them were comfortable accommodation. Staff were always very friendly and ready to try and help with any advice about the park or local area.

Deal is just two or three miles up the road with a full range of pubs, bars and restaurants. Also two large supermarkets so no need to fill your car with supplies. Unpack your clothes and then go food shopping!

The nearby beach is shingle rather sand which is a shame but more than made up for the excellent food and drink at the Zetland Arms on the seafront.

Just returned from a great weekend stay at kingsdown park, chalet 66 and am already on the lookout for another great deal! We were a party of 3 adults and 5 children ranging from 15 down to 6 and there was something for everyone.....especially the kids! Of course, there was plenty for the adults too, including a very pleasant lounge bar which we frequented on many occasions! The staff were very obliging and nothing was too much trouble! Great food at great prices with great service!!!! Will definitely be recommending to friends.....very family orientated. Only downside to the break away was all the tears I had from my youngest when we had to say goodbye to the bar staff...she was besotted with them all, especially Rachel and Les!!! We will definitely be going back!

we visited in march in chalet 68 and loved it so much, that my dad booked a holiday for all his grandchildren, and children [tho sadly my sister has died and my brother in law was working, so only their kids came] in the same chalets. these chalets are well appointed, maintaind well and have had new double glazing since we went in march! although the weather was scorching, it wasn't too hot in the chalet and we slept fine. since there is a patio at the back as well as grassy area to sit out and porch at the front we could always choose sun or shade. the park didn't feel too busy or full despite it being school holidays, we could always get into the pool, again never felt too full. at low tide the beach has some sand at the wave line, though later on it is pebbly. we loved sandwhich beach - only a short drive, and visited deal and walmer castles, richborough fort and port lympne.
my only gripe with kingsdown was the execrably slow service in the bar/restaurant. it was half empty, there was plenty of staff, but it still took 2 hours to have 2 courses, and we were in a hurry!!
i would definatley recommend this pace.

Room Tip: chalets 67 and 68 - search on internet and book direct

We had a wonderful weekend as a very large group of friends. We were accommodated very well and there was something to do for everyone from the very young, to the not so young (sorry....had to say it!) Highly commendable staff who payed attention to detail, were very approachable and helpful with queries. The lodges were very cute, although we did notice that some were a bit nicer than ours. However, a very comfortable couple of night's sleep, and we were nice and close to everything (including the bar, which was visited quite a few times during the weekend!) which was an added bonus. Close proximity to the beach, which was a marvellous place to go and chill out and lounge in the sun.
Coming from only 35 minutes away, we all felt like we'd come to a different place all together. Much needed! A week next time, please?

Room Tip: I've heard that booking privately allows for a better lodge. If you want a quieter holiday, avoi...

Had a great weekend at Kingsdown Park with a large group - just perfect to all be together but have our own space. The location is amazing - hidden away in a beautiful quaint kentish village right by the sea, but with it's own lovely large pool if the sea's too cold! Staff are excellent and pay lots of attention to detail. The lodges are comfortable and excellent value for money, most with lovely outlooks onto well kept grassed areas, or even the sea! We particularly loved having so many things to do, walking, tennis, table tennis, volleyball, swimming, and boules to name but a few. Good bar food and drinks were available most of the time. Thoroughly recommended!
