Just returned from a break at Gurnard Pines, after reading reviewwasn't looking forward to going.
Yes 1st impressions not good , needs some tlc, check in husdand said it was like "Holiday on the buses" everybody lined up. Couldn't understand why if your there a little bit earlier they wouldn't letppeople stay. WE STAYED IN A solent bungalow , suprised when we entered very spacious, clean not a horror story. On the whole as a base and the price a good place to stay.
What needs to be looked at is what most of the reviews are saying , look at the entrance, reception , cafe didn't look appetising, put money into the place. Ideal location just very run down. Hide the bins we know they are needed but don't need to be on show. Also we had a early ferry to catch coming home ,know we're to leave key , had to be left with people waiting for leasure centre to open. Would we go back again. Only if we could guarantee same bungalow and a good price
