Sanitair vies en het afwasgedeelte vies. Jammer dat er niet schoongemaakt wordt. Op de heen en terug reis dezelfde ervaring met het verouderde toiletgebouw.(niet schoon gemaakt). Voor een nacht neem je dit voor lief.

Met slechts twee douches voor de dames is het wat krap, bovendien wordt er heel slecht schoongemaakt.
Honden zijn er veel en ze lopen bijna allemaal los
- verder verrassend groot veld met mooie plekken
- bestel geen grote chips, dan heb je voor drie dagen patat over....

Travelled from Holland to Harwich via ferry.
The cost per night is exorbitant for what you get. You do however pay half price for the first night if you show your ferry ticket.
The toilet & shower facilities were filthy & unmaintained.

Dit is de tweede keer dat we gebruik maakten van de camping omdat het makkelijk bij de ferry naar Holland ligt, er was wat opgeknapt in het sanitair gebouw o.a. nieuwe tegeltjes maar de waterkraan buiten hing er nog steeds los bij, 4 jaar geleden ook al en de afwas voorziening is nog steeds slecht, ook de oude wasbakken met vieze lagen kit waren nog niet vervangen al met al er was iets verbetering maar geen camping voor meerdere dagen.

Voor 1 nacht net te doen. Voor de rest verschrikkelijk.
Afwassen, drama. Douche gelegenheid erbarmelijk.
Drinkwater leiding hing er bij.
We stonden nu voor de helft v.d. prijs m.i. veel te hoog.

Fam. de Groot, on this campsite in May 2015

7.1

Twee pluspunten: uiterst vriendelijke ontvangst en goedkoop tarief, dwz helft van normale prijs vanwege Stena-ticket. Wellicht was er een misverstand bij aankomst want we begrepen dat de toiletten altijd open waren maar dat de douches het nog niet deden. Welnu, het hele toiletgebouw zat op slot. We konden wel weer teruggaan naar de ingang om tegen een borg van 10 pond een sleutel te krijgen, maar aangezien we helemaal aan het andere eind van de camping stonden (als enige), besloten we om het te de doen met toilet en douche aan boord. Behalve een overnachting zou ik hier niet willen staan. Erg veel stacaravans (zoals overal in Engeland) en verder niet veel te doen.
