Caravan wasn’t clean but they came and did it again. Called silver but felt like bronze. Restaurant had no salad. Healthiest item I could find was battered mushrooms. Apparently the salad is arriving tomorrow. Disappointing. Sunny evening though and still fun. Scampi and chips, peas looked yellow and weren’t nice. How hard can it be to cook nice peas.

Booked a last minuted stay for a Gold Plus Caravan, was set at a good price, on arrival check in was quick and easy. Direction to Caravan was easy to find and perfectly located as travelling with my mum who is hard of walking so close to all amenities which was ideal. On arrival to the Caravan my son said there was a sick smell in the van, we thought as it had been hot previously maybe it just needed a good airing. There was a funny looking stain on the carpet in lounge, which i cleaned just in case. Over to the swimming pool and the staff there where great and friendly, evening entertainment was also good fun for the 3 children (5yrs, 9yrs, 13yrs). Sadly we noticed in the bathroom on the towel rail and also on the net curtain in lounge the remaining sick from the previous occupants, after reporting this to reception and then nothing happening i was disappointing to see no-one had been to clean, this was a call to the Out of hours staff as it was 6.30pm! Reception and no managers on site after 5pm, so if you have a problem make sure you deal with it before 5pm! The OFH guys were really helpful and offered to move us, unfortunately to the other side of park further away so not idea for my mother. We decided to stay in the caravan, the OFH guys took the net curtain and we just didn't use the bathroom, thankful for 2 toilets! A member of staff did come and bring back a cleaned net curtain and also cleaned the towel rail of its remains the following morning, sadly the day we was leaving.(a little to late) Such a shame as the rest of the weekend was great fun the children enjoyed all the extra activities like Swimming each day, Segway, pottery painting and dino karts and the freedom of the park. Maybe the managers! of course before 5pm should take a look at there cleaning staff and take into consideration many people have chosen to do stay cations this year and cleanliness should be 200% not what we experienced.

I am sorry that you felt that the caravan was not up to our usual high standard, but when this was reported the holiday sales manager came to see you and the next day the accommodation manager also came to see you and it was confirmed that this was rust and not sick. There was management on park as always and were available until 7pm and the after our wardens take over until midnight. Again I am sorry that the caravan wasn’t quite right for you but we did our very best to rectify this at the time for you.

I am a leader at the local scout group and Birchington Vale kindly gave us the opportunity to use their swimming pool. Sam and Jack were very helpful when it came to booking/arranging the session and Lewis, the lifeguard on duty, was very welcoming. The young people had a fantastic time and especially enjoyed using the water slide. Thank you!

Just returned from a 4 night stay as a couple with our dog. We got a really good last minute deal and stayed in a gold plus caravan. Very clean and comfortable, nice extra to find some washing up liquid and sponge in caravan. All staff we interacted with were friendly and helpful, and the evening entertainment was enjoyable. I had a few early morning coffees on the veranda behind the clubhouse and this is a lovely relaxing spot. Mini golf was enjoyable for £3 each and the swimming pool although small and shallow was nice to cool down in, and the booking system they have works well. The grounds of the park are very well maintained and include a launderette (you need to purchase a card to use this) and well stocked shop. Well worth a trip to Herne Bay which is about 20 minutes by car. Really nice little pier and stretch of arcades. Overall we had a really lovely time here and will definitely return.
