Very well maintained place, good location. Very clean and tidy.

Accommodation:
We stayed in the old style chalets. We were expecting it to be bad based on the price and reviews. Anything above dirty and stinky would have been a bonus. It was not dirty and not stinky. It was spacious and fairly clean.
However it was very old and badly decorated.
Stained carpets.
Old bathroom.
Beds very uncomfortable.
No noise.
Kitchen very well equipped.
Hot water was hot. (Bedroom with hot water tank in was very warm).
CLothes drier would have been useful.

Entertainment:
Entertainment venu was like an oven. Just too hot to stay in on a couple of the nights.
Venue is far too small for the number of people on the site. Lots of people standing in the doorways to keep an eye on the kids.
Kids and toddler entertainment was pretty good.
Sammy sea horse and his friends are pretty terrible but the kids like them.

Pub and restaurant:
Interesting building. Nice.

Food:
Restaurant - Not that great. Good looking menu but disappointing.
Take away was Ok.

Shop:
Pricey. Good selection.

Other facilities:
Pool was great.
Crazy golf, adventure playground - both pretty good.

Beach:
Lovely. Only a couple of minutes walk.

Area:
Good base to get to places. Traffic around Bournemouth is pretty bad though - always takes twice as long as you'd think.
Some reasonable take aways within a couple of miles either side of the site.

Down side:
We liked the place and wanted to stay on for an extra couple of nights. They had availability but would only offer it at the brochure price for 3 nights (ie we would have had to pay for the Friday night that had already passed with the property empty) - when we only wanted 2. They would rather it stayed empty than take a reasonable amount of money for a couple of nights. For this reason we will not be going back.

Stayed at a Solent Lodge in March. It's the second year running we have been here in March and will go again next year! The lodges are of an excellent standard and also very clean! It is located right on the beach and a stones throw from the New Forest! We spent a day at the Isle if wight as the ferry crossing only 10 mins away! There is a great little bar at the park with a real pub atmosphere. I can't fault this park at all and would recommend it to anyone and will definately be returning!

My wife, my 2 year old son an I have just returned from a 1 week break at Hoburne Naish and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, We rented a caravan directly from an owner which worked out cheaper and worked for us as it was nice and clean, modern and in a nice position overlooking a small field and not too far away from the facilities. The sites entertainment was great for our son who had a great time dancing and running around every night. He also made full use of the soft play area which allowed us to sit back and have a drink while watching him.

We used the indoor pool once which was fine for kids and made use of crazy golf and the outdoor playground. We also ate a couple of times at the Smugglers restaurant and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food which we all enjoyed.

The area of the park is excellent and we headed out for days at Paultons Park, Bournemouth and got very lucky with the weather with a day on Sandbanks which has an excellent beach.

All in all we had a great time and would be happy to head back.

Room Tip: Using websites for owners caravans direct can work out cheaper.

Booked an Ashurst Chalet purely as it was the cheapest. Didn't expect much, just a place to lay our head at night as we would be out all day and eating out.

Chalet was basic, a bit dated, but scrupulously clean and spacious, shower pressure was fine, lots of new utensils in the kitchen, everything that we could possibly need. Beds were very hard but that suits some people, I'm just not one of them. Only other thing I could add was not very much clothes storage available, especially in the 2nd bedroom.

Our chalet looked directly over the sea, with a fabulous view of the Isle of Wight. The park is close to lots of chain restaurants, Toby, Harvester, Hall & Woodhouse, Beefeater as well as lots of very good local pubs. Busy town just a mile or so away. Fantastic countryside, just a few miles outside the New Forest. Didn't use the onsite facilities much, we're not the type to use the club in the evenings but we did have a relaxing drink in the bar at night. Staff were very friendly, helpful and when we had a small problem in our Chalet it was rectified within 10 minutes. It's not what the problem is that matters it's the way it is handled and the staff here were very professional.

Best park of this type I have ever been to, I will definitely return. The only bad thing about this holiday was taking my mother with me..... :-P

I visited this Hoburne resort with my partner and 2 young children at the end of June, we stayed in Solent Lodge 3. I didn't really have high hopes of the resort before going as the cost was reasonable, however on our arrival i was astonished to see our accomodation. We had a 3 bedroom lodge, 1 bedroom with en suite, it was bigger than our house! It had a lovely decked area at the front which had a lockable gate so the children could play out there safely . The lodge felt extrremly homley and was so clean and tidy, we rented a high chair and this look brand new, also a travel cot which was in immaculate condition.

The beach next to the resort is absolutely lovely and was very quiet, the kids loved it! There was a family friendly bar where the kids could play in the large soft play area for hours on end as we relaxed, and there was entertainment on every evening as well (the bar area was seperate to the the entertainment so you didnt have to sit there and watch it). There is a costcutters on site for anything you need, also a laundrette (which was reasonably priced). Indoor and outdoor pools were fantastic and there was also a seperate childrens pool and small gym.

Overall we loved and can't wait to go back, i cannot recommend this place enough!!!!

Room Tip: the lodges are fantastic!
