“Will not be returning unless they upgrade”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

Attended in our touring caravan a party of 5 including 2 grandchildren 8 & 10 years old. The site was mainly static vans with a caravan/camping area of over 100 pitches - 80% being tents. I am only able to talk about the female areas - the toilet block was old and grubby. Definite shortage of hot water - of the 7 showers I took 5 were with cold water - hot showers only very early in the morning. On one occasion I had to stop what I was doing to search the other toilets for tissue - not a nice experience. For a site of over 100 pitches there were 6 showers and 6 toilets so queues were a regular occurrence.
When we arrived at about 3.30 pm my husband went to the shop to buy milk and they had non - later in the week on returning from a day out I found I needed some butter but the shop had none - not even cheap stuff. We ran out of toilet blue for the caravan toilet, I am sure any caravanner would count this as a basic but the site shop did not sell any touring van items, no blue no tent pegs nothing.
The children's entertainment was split by bingo so at 5.30 pm to 6.30/7 pm there was activity which my 8 year old grand-daughter enjoyed but then there was a break for bingo which we don't enjoy and the older children's actives started about an hour and a half later so we didn't hang around which didn't go down well with my older grand-daughter.
There are a lot more things I could say but I am sure you get the idea that we will not be returning.

Thank you for sharing your views on Trip Advisor. I am so sorry to hear that we did not exceed your expectations and that you would not return. We do appreciate that our shower block is a little dated but we have full time cleaners who keep them perfectly clean. I am concerned that there was a shortage of hot water and have passed on your comments to our Maintenance Manager who will be looking into this. The onsite shop is run by a different company, not Park Resorts, but I am sorry there was a shortage of stock during your stay.
Our Teamstars do work very hard keeping all age groups entertained so I apologise if this was not to your taste.

Really good base to go out and about seeing the beautiful Isle of Wight. Fabulous greeting on arrival by Corinne who was attentive and on the ball throughout. Really glad I picked languard and not Lower Hyde for touring as the field was shaded and full of trees whereas LH was open, higher up and quite windy. Short walk to park and entertainment centre. Kids enjoyed the entertainment. Quite mediocre but ok and kept the kids quiet awhile. Quite a few activities on during the day and 9-yr old enjoyed pool activities. Most evenings we went out anyway. Would go back, but hear that they are moving the site to LH exclusively to make room for more statics. An enjoyable family holiday.

Thank you for writing your review.

I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us, our touring site is very flat and surrounded by trees thus giving quite a lot of shade. It is great that you received a warm welcome from Corinne, she really has been doing a great job keeping all our campers happy this season.

As you say, Landguard is a great base to explore the Island and I do hope you would consider Park Resorts for any future visits.

This is our 2nd visit to Landguard Holiday park. What attracts us to camping with park resorts is the great value they offer, especially during peak season while other campsites tend to hike their prices up during the summer holidays. Isle of Wight is a lovely place to visit and we particulary love this part of the island as there is so much to see and do. As for the park itself, it a lovely place. The touring Manager Corinne is ever so friendly and makes you feel very welcome. The toilets/showers were always cleaned and stocked up daily and Lidls and Morrison are both nearby which is an added bonus. The swimming pool is a bit on the small side but saying that, there are plenty of beaches around that the pool is just an added bonus and the inside pool was lovely and warm. Clubhouse drinks are a bit on the pricey side and the night time entertainment is okay. This could be a great place if more money was put into the entertaiment side of things. Dont get me wrong for what you pay its good and we did have a fab time and would return.

We started our holiday in the lower Hyde park but then got upgraded, due to a poor caravan, into a lodge in languard which was very nice. Nice location, friendly staff & everything close at hand. Although I must say the restaurant & entertainment in the lower Hyde park was much better than languard. But overall we all had a very good holiday with park resorts.

Thank you for sharing your views on TripAdvisor, I am so sorry that your holiday had a bad start but am delighted that you were happy with your upgrade and move to Landguard.

Our lodges are very popular and set in a lovely woodland area. One of the benefits for all our guests is to be able to use the facilities at Lower Hyde and I do hope you would consider using Park Resorts again in the future.
