we have just arrived back from a 4 night stay at seaview, there was 7 of us in a ten berth gold plus caravan, caravan was lovely, new and clean, one double bed wasn't made up on arrival, I rang the lovely judi in reception and someone came within 10 minutes and rectified the situation, she was very apologetic and explained that she only makes up the rooms that have bedding and no one had put bedding in that room. 30 minutes after calling all was sorted and we were settled into our lovely caravan. we had arrived on the site early and were allowed to use the facilities. The site is spotlessly clean, the only mess I saw all week was a noisy caravan near ours leaving pizza boxes outside (why do some always try and ruin it for others!!!) everyone on the site was friendly and helpful, entertainment is limited but the 3 people doing it were so lovely and great with the kids. the only downfall is the bingo time, loopy the rabbit comes out for 15 minutes at 6 ( so get to club house early for kids) then its bingo till 7.30ish, I think this is because its a link up bingo with other sites which I do love to do but trying to keep 4 children quiet and busy for an hour was really hard, the team put out colouring but its just not enough, luckily we had good weather so me and another adult in our party took it in turns to supervise the children outside as they can escape the play area through a small gate that you cant see from the venue. Bar staff were nice, found drinks pricey though 3.40 for a vodka, lime and soda!!! maybe I just don't go out enough..!
Food was served at the venue and looked ok, we only had chips and they were fine, definitely not fine dining but you get what you pay for. Toilets, arcades and play area all clean and well maintained. Site is right on the pebbly beach, Whitstable one way (lovely restaurants and shops) and herne bay the other way (great for tacky arcades, crabbing of the pier and an ice cream) when walking from campsite to herne bay you pass a lovely play area that is great for kids, walking into Whitstable the other way you pass a fab skate park (loved by the older kids in our party) and the lovely beach huts of tankerton. we only live an hour from here so we do know local attractions nearby but didn't visit any during this stay as we just wanted to chill in the campsite and around area that was within walking distance. the pool is outdoor and looked clean and well maintained, shame it wasn't open as we had great weather this week. I would definitely book again here, would only stay in gold plus up as some of the caravans looked tired and on speaking to other guests some weren't so lucky with their accommodation as we were. Also there were a lot of teenagers on the site with not a lot to do so they overtook the outside play area one evening shouting and swearing and kicking a ball at the younger children. This was no fault of the park and staff itself but we never saw anyone patrolling areas occasionally to ensure this didn't happen, also about 2 rows down from us was a really noisy caravan full of teenagers and what appeared to be no adults! I was woken twice in our four night stay at 1 am by shouting etc again no fault of the site, just a shame that some people have so little consideration for others as we were 2 women in the caravan we felt to intimidated to go out and ask them to be quiet and we weren't given a number for security. My children loved it here, we were blessed with the weather and I do think if it hadn't been so nice we would have found it more difficult to find things to do, but luckily for us it was great. We will hopefully be back soon.
