an update on 18th of aug: Pontins have refused to refund me ANYTHING because we handed the keys in and went home. They say we didnt give a chance for them to rectify it.... there was no way they could rectify anything, all "apartments" are exactly the same, run down, dirty, disgusting, unhygenic, falling apart hellholes.

Hotel tip: Don't go there
The chalet was spotless-everything seemed brand new. Stayed half board Mon-Fri. Would have booked extra days but had to get back. Tried to book later in the year while we were there but told we couldn’t -only through head office which seemed a bit daft. I don’t think the moaners could have stayed at the same Pontins. Looked forward to my breakfast every morning cooked just as I like it!

Breakfast very good and had everything you could want and more. Suitable for all ages in family cereals cooked breakfasts toast, hash browns, white bread, marmalade, jam, butter etc and drinks tea, coffee, pop, squash, milk. Very good for the money as the food was included in price of our holiday, Oh and lovely bacon, sausage and two eggs well you could eat as much as you wanted!
There were five adults and two children in our party and we all enjoyed the food. The chip shop on site was not very good, grubby shop an food to expensive the chips should be a pound in money then lots would be sold even frozen chips would have been better cheap an cheerful that's what's need edthere.
We were supposed to have a good welcome pack didn't get it till third day it should have been in chalet so we could have drink on arrival. They need a separate eating place for those who want a meal occasionally the people who have booked self catering but nice to have a meal maybe first night and last night before they leave. A small restaurant would be nice not everybody wants hotdogs and chips for the whole week.
Would just like to praise the people who cook breakfasts on site. I know they do dinners but think it was mainly for inclusive holidays we didn't try the dinners though because we all wanted to many different foods. If they had double beds I would go again though that was the only real complaint that they don't cater for couples that need a proper bed lots people go with parents and grandparents so I think this should be something they should look into.

Chalet stuck in the dark ages. Radically needs updating. Smelly and damp and the only thing you have to keep it clean is a broom, dustpan and brush - need a mop with kids walking dirt and grass in all the time. Objected to having to queue for bed linen and leave a deposit which meant another queue when handing back.
Too much money paid for too little. Would rather have stayed in a caravan or even a tent for that matter. At the end of the break I asked for a customer comment form only to be told "we don't do that’’ says it all.
No bath mat had to get out on to dirty floor. Plastic covers on beds which if you sleep on you get a rash. Furniture dropping to bits what there is of it. No essential (masher peeler can opener) out the arc, thin pans that burnt easily.
It would just be easier to ask what is good about it. Badly need parking near chalets. Shower should be adjusted we are not all over 6ft. tall Staff badly need a course in public relation.
The food in the restaurant was rubbish and there wasn’t enough to fill a mouse and far too dear for what you get.
The staff were pleasant enough. The entertainment was a special event and it was brilliant.
We arrived at midday and were told we would have to wait until 4:30pm for our key to the room. I asked why we had to wait so long, the receptionist said they had over 500 apartments to clean.
When we received the keys, we had to join the scrum for a parking space near the apartment.
Apartment what a laugh
As we were only there for 3 nights, we chose the budget accommodation. We opened the door and the smell just hit me,looking around it looked like it had never been cleaned since Fred and Wilma Flint-stone last stayed there. I counted 20 dead flies in the bath, Pubic hairs on the toilet seat. the kitchen was also filthy and the floor, could have grown mushrooms.
We told receptionist about the state of the room and she just shrugged her shoulders. On asking if someone could clean the room she said there was Know-one as they had gone home. when i asked to be moved they said every room had been taken,so i asked for my money back. Well two minutes later she came back and said we do have a room available. Apartment 108.
(Out of the frying pan in to the fire).
The apartment was next to the Queen Vic Pub. Slightly better on cleanliness(Slum)not Derelict like the Budget accommodation but if you have the miss fortune to book here please stay away from room 108 the noise is terrible if we got to sleep before 2am we were doing well. Kids banging on the windows shouting and general abuse when you asked them to go away.
Security what security.
Food no comment.
Location OK if you have a care
Would i visit again Know way even if someone else paid.

Arrived full of hope, was disappointed from the outset having to wait in queues with around another 500 people for our key, then join a free for all as parking near the accommodation was minimal and it too many journeys to and from the car to unpack.
