Great location, we thought Woolacombe was lovely. We were impressed with the amount of activities on site, lots of stuff for the kids and the bus service was very good. For what we paid for the holiday we did not expect the accomodation etc.. to be amazing, which it wasn't. The lodge itself was pretty average. All fully equipped but we felt the bedrooms were definitely in need of updating although clean. Any food which we purchased in the Harrys Bar was also ok but not amazing. The service for breakfast in there was also not what we had hoped. We would recommend this to someone else if you wanted somewhere to go for the kids with loads of stuff to do which is good value for money. If you are looking for somewhere a bit more luxurious this is not the place. We are also not big fans of the holiday entertainment side of things anyway so did not try much of it out but our kids did like the disco. It did get very busy to the point where people seemed to be getting there in the afternoon just to save tables etc... We did not try the kids camps as you could not leave your kids and had to go around with them. We felt that going out and exploring the great beach and town was a better experience for them. The indoor swimming pool was good, our kids loved that aspect. We went in October half-term so the outdoor pools were not open but they did look good and I think in the summer there would be an even larger range of activities to do. I would worry though that it would get far too busy. All in all I think if we were to go back we would probably spend more money on a plusher (?) lodge. It seemed like a well run place and was pretty much what we were looking for, for a short half-term break which was good value.
