Real reviews, from customers like you.
The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, especially the swimming pool staff. The accommodation however was very disappointing. Rock hard beds, thin duvets, hard pillows and possibly the worst equipped kitchen ever- not even a pan you could fry an egg in or a knife sharp enough to cut cheese!
I booked for 14 of us to celebrate my eldest daughters 50th birthday, we arrived on Good Friday @ 4pm as requested eventually after being told to cue up three times we received our key at 6.45. We were told that the chalets were not ready as 8 people had rung in sick. If that was true I would suggest the camp should not have been open. More like they had a walk out. Also in my much younger days I worked as a chalet maid and know that Easter is the first full occupancy and that most chalets should have been ready before. I asked for three bedrooms for the booking of 6 all they got was two beds and a bed settee, and only one heater JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH
Really rather bad
We liked the site, staff were very helpful. However, the lodge was very dated and very cold. Heating was not adequate and the linen provided in particular the duvet were too thin for the time of year (Easter) which was not overly warm.
Its alright for younger primary aged children, theres not much for older children. The pool was small with a slide. The changing rooms were communal and cramped with no lockers and dirty in fact the walk between the changing room and pool was dirty.
Nice and clean. Well set out, plenty of walks to enjoy. Also a quiet retreat for some well deserved r&r.
A very out of date chalet (bronze) a shower instead of a to shorter bath although everything was very clean. Bath size issue would not stay again.
rather a long queue to book in
cabin was a bit tired in appearance
at night path wanted more lighting, bit slippy in places
shop was well stocked, clubhouse ok
nice location for walks ,
it is a bit out of the way but pretty good site
dogs were not charged for
Nice location, cafe & bar OK, reception staff indifferent !!
Area is lovely staff are lovely just very old chalets
Brilliant for kids! Great value for money
Brilliant location for western Cornwall. Cheap and cheerful. Beds very hard. Slight damp issue but was end of March. Clean and tidy on arrival and the little I spoke to staff they were polite and helpful. Mainly used sight as a base and place to sleep so can't comment too much on the facilities etc. TV had good reception and phone signal on EE was ok. Could get 3G in a couple of places only in bungalow. Could do with widening the Wi-Fi signal but I did quite enjoy the break from the internet. Would not put 2 adults in the twin room though as very small, ok for young kids though.
Fantastic stay, clean and comfortable stay in fabulous setting.
Entertainment perfect for family break
Accommodation (Silver Chalet) was spotless and reasonably modern inside - feared the worst based on previous reviews, and they do look like sheds from the outside, but more than adequate for my wife, 3 year old daughter and I for a week.
Swimming pool very nice, but be warned - you have to walk past an outside door to get to the changing rooms from the pool. Probably not an issue in the Summer but absolutely freezing in March!
Bus to St. Ives wasn't running which was disappointing, so £17 return taxi on the evenings we did want to go into town.
Finally, biggest recommendation of all goes to The Stripeys (the entertainment staff) - they were absolutely fantastic with our daughter on the evenings we visited the clubhouse. She had an absolutely wonderful time playing with them and the characters. Despite the site being busy, very few people seemed to use the clubhouse - so not easy for them to keep things upbeat, but they did a great job anyway.
Would not go again. Place was damp, dirty and full of bugs and wasps.
