“another great break”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

spent the last 4 days at the park and loved every minute we were camping on the willows field we were greeted by Sandra and taken to our pitch she is really helpful and spends her time running around making sure everyone is ok she goes above and beyond in keeping shower block clean and well stocked she is very good at her job and always pleasant to talk to
main building is clean and food well priced we ate there everyday beer prices could be lower but the offers when football is on brings this inline with other places
it is a bit small for size of site could be bigger and you need to get in early as tables are limited as food and entertainment are in same place
swimming pool is small but as you book in and have 40 mins in pool it is ok lifeguards work hard keeping it clean could do with being a bit bigger and more changing rooms
arcade could do with some newer games and less ticket machines as you end up with loads of tickets and get rubbish prizes when you cash them in spend a fortune and £1 shop prizes at best
entertainment staff are great pj amy and dan work tirelessly keeping kids and adults entertained my wife loved the show tunes on Thursday night
but the best part of our time there was john clegg from bgt his act was very funny and not just aimed at adults my kids loved it too this was the main reason we booked to stay and we were not disappointed absolutely brilliant
my wife watched frozen under the stars and loved it even though it was cold
this was our 2nd stay and will be going again next year overall it is a very well run clean site loads to do for the kids all the staff are very hard working
only bad point was the bar staff not really enough of them at busy times and in particular a barmaid who let it get 5 deep without looking up more interested in drinking a coffee and wiping the bar but rest were great and fast
on the whole great site and improvements had been made since our last stay at easter

Having read some of the reviews on here, I had some reservations about our camping stay but our chosen dates limited our options.
Firstly, most of the things people say in other reviews is true but your experience will probably depend on your expectations and how you feel you can cope with it.
The camping field is very uneven but it's certainly possible to pitch around it.
The shower facilities are rather dated and small but I never found that there wasn't a shower available when I needed it.
The pool is fine but the changing facilities are inadequate, again you can plan around this by getting out five minutes earlier than everyone else in your 40 minute session.
The food is of a similar standard to 2 for £10 type pubs but, typically of these kind of sites, is more expensive.
There were a number of other campers who showed little respect for other people and their children by swearing loudly or playing music into the night, but these were fairly rare and the staff did offer to deal with it if it became a problem.
The clubhouse is waaaaaaaay too small. To be guaranteed a seat we realised we needed to arrive for about 5.15.
These things were made bearable by the staff, who without exception, were friendly and only too pleased to help. The entertainment team is small but talented, (I work in entertainment and Amy's morning 'Pipsqueak' routine was worthy of a TV performance.)
All in all, it feels like the park operates an absolute minimum cost model and does just enough so most people won't complain, then it employs exceptional people to cover the cracks.
I think I probably prefer it this way round.

Our first experience of Park Resorts and have to say was not disappointed. Booked a bronze caravan for 4 and was given a 3 bedroom caravan in a great location. Caravan was clean and well equipped. All staff I encountered were fantastic friendly and helpful. Special mention for PJ, Dan and Amy - never seen 3 people work so hard at keeping people entertained, they were brilliant!
Only criticism is the bar/entertainment area is small for the size of the site so not always easy to get a table straight away but get one if you wait around long enough - or get there before the Bingo!
Recommend a visit to The Deep in Hull and RAF Holmpton, though also easy for York and Coastal Towns.

Really pleased to read that you had an amazing holiday with your family. You are right when you say that the entertainments team do an amazing job, they work very hard and we are so proud to have them here at Withernsea!

Booked this holiday using 300 pounds in tesco vouchers plus 250 cash towards it including dog.went with my wife and 13 and 9 yr old was put in bronze caravan which on arrival appeared to be clean and have everything kitchen wise. First night went to club entertainment was good for young children nothing for older ones booked for a week Monday to Friday the entertainment team worked really hard every night . during our first night sleep noticed a damp smell in bedroom which as week went on got worse on closer inspection could see black damp stained on wAll and black damp spits all over headboard , The fire also stopped working . Reported both to reception who sent staff round relatively quickly. The wall was cleaned and offending headboard removed but not replaced and we were provided with a lighter to assist with fire .All staff were helpful throughout our stay.However not much to do in evening . Hull , Bridlington and Beverley all within easy reach of site .Last but not least on the Friday afternoon the smell from hell decended on the hole site!!!!! muck spreading at its worst smelled like dead fish, guts and everything else from a fish... Disgusting smell was in club and caravan after this we decided to cut our holiday short as this smell was obviously going to return.We left two days early when asked why by staff said damp and smell spoilt our holiday the staff did apologise.Overall the site was what we expected as was the caravan .The staff were helpful and the entertainers always gave 100 percent.

Thank you for your review and I am pleased to read that the team at Withernsea looked after you during your stay. Our team do pride themselves on offering a very high standard of customer service. I do apologise for the smell you have described. It was not just the park but the whole area as the local farmer was working on his fields. I am sure that you will understand that we have no control over this but thankfully, this is a very rare event! Thanks once again for your review and hopefully we we welcome you back again in the future.

We booked this for 6 days being summer holiday this was only place available for this length of time when we wanted to go , previously just having stayed at park resorts in skipsea this was no where near to skipsea standards it needs some tlc and updating swimming pool ok but boring amusements clean and nice in a day but too small for crowded night times especially when you travel through this to get to the bar the bad far to small for night time entertainment parks good but small toilets are porter cabins rather than luxiourious cabins at skipsea showers ok but small if your oblast this won't work overall this was average stay I don't feel we got our money worth for a week stay as we never used pool etc but for a weekend this would be an okay break

We were two adults with two kids and a dog. We booked the Bronze caravan (only one available if you have a dog).
The caravan was clean and tidy and very much what we expected.
The resort, unfortunately, was rather dire.
One main play area had a zipline which was broken. The other play area was restricted to under 6 year olds.
The arcade area was very cramped and limited, with most of the machines malfunctioning. We were forever having to get someone to sort them out so the kids could have their tickets.
The swimming pool was much smaller than expected, and although you could see why it was necessary, the booking for 40 minute swim sessions were a pain.
The website advertised this place as having wi-fi! Which only worked in a small part of the bar - this needs to improve dramatically, especially given that the area is not covered by 3G.
The evening entertainments were rather enjoyable though. But be warned - the drinks at the bar are expensive - this is disappointing - drinks in places like this should be cheaper.
I know this is a major part of their business model, but be warned you will be put under pressure to buy a caravan!!
Finally, I did not find this place dog friendly. Dogs were allowed in bronze accommodation (for a nominal fee), but our puppy was met with some hostility from other guests.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that you experienced some issues whilst staying with us. Your comments have been passed on to the relevant teams to address where necessary.
I was surprised to read your comments regarding your puppy. We are a dog friendly park. We do ask for dogs to be kept on a lead and for owners to clear up any doggy mess, but apart from that, which are standard terms and conditions we love dogs!
If other guests were hostile towards your puppy, I do apologise Once again, thank you for your review.
