Booked online due to cheap price and location, but had a few problems which made me rate this place much lower than I would have hoped to. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, which is what got the score I have rated.
We arrived late and after office hours (about 9pm) and received our keys and info from a postbox at the door - no problems with that and seemed to be a good system. Got to our cabin and found we had no linen as we had paid extra for. Had to go back to reception and use the emergency phone number listed on the door. Disturbed a man who was very apologetic and gave us sheets and blankets, but when getting back to the cabin we realised the duvet cover was completely mouldy and covered in paint! Cleanliness is not something I would usually be fussy about in a cheap caravan park, but this wasn't really acceptable! Being late and having already called the 'emergency' number once we decided to just use the sheet.
Another problem with our cabin was the smell of smoke that filled it, not something that can be helped if ignorant guests choose to smoke in a non-smoking cabin but nevertheless still a but annoying. Maybe if a cleaner notices a smell like that then management should be notified as there were numerus cabins we could have been assigned to.
Final problem with the cabin was the noise from the 'rugby team' who were booked into the 2 cabins next to us, with an empty park and lots of free cabins you would think they may rethink putting 8 youg males right next door to other guests.
Overall, a cheap place to stay if your not too fussy, had we not had these issues, we probably would have had a better impression. General decor and wear and tear of the cabin was poor, as were the bathroom facilities, but kitchen and lounge area were nice.
Fine for a one night stay somewhere central ish for Hastings and vineyards surrounding this area!
