“Appalling Staff”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

This attraction could be outstanding but is let down by staff who appear to have no interest in their jobs and are more interested in chatting amongst themselves. The place could do with a though clean up and staff with a complete change of attitude.

“Takes 5 minutes...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

Again this is part of the 'Wookey Hole' day (well 2 hours) out.

This paper mill is one room with some old machinery and posters on the wall. There are demonstrations on how paper is made and children (if they are tall enough) can have a try at making paper.

This is ok, not great though...

“not too bad- a shame about the attraction it accompanies”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

Wooky Hole is a big disappointment.... it is not the magical place that it appears to be on the leaflets. It COULD be amazing- but they have tried to do things on a shoe string budget, leading to upsetting results. The indoor play centres are filthy....and the 'grotto' is a tiny room, after a long que in a pub/bar area : (

“One room!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Advertised as paper mill, what? Where? Its a room with some old machines in it, and when the staff are there they show you how to make a piece of paper. That's it.
