When i travel anywhere i always use trip advisor,but most of the time like the majority of people you make your own mind up and hope for the best from a bad rated like this place
I travelled to Dawlish Sands with the wife and 4 year old daughter for a four day newspaper break and just got back.
We arrived at 3pm and had to wait till 4 pm as the caravan was still being made ready for us.At 16.10 i was back in the site shop buying fabreze air freshener.
Now im no snob,we take our fortnight holiday in Canada or America and stay in 4 star hotel min, but we have at least 2 newspaper breaks also during the year as they are good value,if you drop on a good site ,we always try to go to Woolacombe Bay,its quality.
This bronze caravan stunk of wet dog,carpet was filthy,cooker flithy,bedrooms filthy,curtains filthy,windows filthy, as for the fold away table that we had to eat off it was rusted to the point of collapse.All the decor was a sham both inside and out.
We tidied as best we could and made the best of it the first night.We went the club house and in there i spoke to a few people who expressed their concerns over the state of their caravan.They are extremely dated and in need of a major refurb.
Awoke the next morning to stale musty odour,It was ground in.We packed up and got out of there asap,on leaving the site i expressed my concerns but had a blank look off the muppet behind the counter
.Now i only paid £94 for 4 nights, actually i think it wasnt even worth paying half that so i feel ripped off.Good to say though we had a cracking remainder of a stay in good hotel in Torquay even if it did cost me an arm and a leg,you get what you pay for.....Give this a miss.I feel sorry for anyone who has actually said that this place was ok. Obviously these people dont holiday like i do
