"Excellent break with young children…"
Visited Waterside for 7 days last summer(first week of school summer holidays)and considering going back this year. Cannot fault the park actually. Staff were great - helpful and friendly. Mobile home was spotless (white area - nice and close to facilities) Facilities excellent.
Location fantastic - never been to Weymouth before and I will be back. The outdoor play area is a good size for children (mine are 3 and 6) with only one entrance/exit. Its right next to the Spar - which is good for the basics. The indoor soft play area was very nice - bit dark but the kids didn't seem to mind. You do pay to use the cash machine - I'd buy a drink and get cashback if I were you. The arcade area is a good size and the kids enjoyed themselves. Drinks not too pricey. Neither is food. Its not a bargain by any means, but its fine. They aren't particularly 'accurate' when pouring cocktails - so if you want a good deal try those
Tried both the Waterside chippy and the Bowleaze cove one - both much of a muchness - bit greasy but nice cod. Pool areas are lovely but found the chlorine very strong so kept it to 40 minute 'sessions'. Outdoor pool like a bath - very warm. Didn't try the spa but imagine its a good standard like the rest of the site. Laundrette nice and clean but only 3 washers and 3 driers. Wash will cost £4 and to dry a load is £1 for 20 mins. I asked for a new tin opener at reception and it was there within the hour. We had an 'elegance' caravan with a patio - compact but nice.
I found for me that the sofa bed was more comfortable than the double or the twins (which are very small and soft - no good for a tall/bit adult - just about long enough for me at 5'5") Spotless appliances. Bring a fan if its hot. Also bring blackouts if your kids aren't good sleepers - I just use bulldog clips to attach blackout fabric.
Clothes rail (for towels) is small so again bring your own if necessary. We didn't go to the restaurant and only went to the entertainment twice but my youngest enjoyed the magic show. I can manage without! We found it to be pretty quiet at night. Overall I would recommend it thoroughly.Read moreLess
