When we arrived the staff were very attentive, our accommodation was very good and clean, entertainment was nil, bar food not much choice, no live t v in bar area, we were told the outside pool was heated but it wasn't the heating never gets turned on because they cant afford it, overall myself and my family was very disappointed, I don't like writing a bad review but in this case I felt I had to, on what the holiday cost I was very upset with the hole experienceVic from Crawley (22 August 2014) Gurnard is shabby. Needs massive improvements.Leona (22 August 2014) The site itself was very pleasant but it all felt a little dead.Angela from Newcastle Under Lyme (22 August 2014) Brilliant little holiday with the kidsDaniel from Southampton (18 August 2014) Lodges were not cleaned very well very dirtyCustomer 5 (18 August 2014) A lovely woodland setting but a shame there was such a lack of maintanance across the whole site. Overflowing bins, broken tennis courts & equipment. Dirty play area indoor & the outdoor pool was too cold to go in with my familySarah from Suffolk (15 August 2014) Good size accommodation for the price but should be noted that the children's playground is closed (and doesn't look like it's being reopened anytime soon!) and there is no shop or laundry on site. Swimming pool is great.Robin (15 August 2014) We understand that the park may need to go through periods of maintenance but to have your playground area cordoned off during the 6 week ( peak season) holiday I feel is disappointing.Emma from High Wycombe (15 August 2014) Very quiet and the lodge we stayed in was spacious and we loved it, I would say the lodges need to be upgraded as they was a bit tired looking inside, if your looking for a quiet place were you get lots of exercise then this is the place to go as there was no shops and the facilities shut at 9 pm also no phone reception at all apart from wifi in the main building until 9pm, which was great as the kids had to find other ways to amuse them selfs, overall not very good for teenagers but absolutely perfect for me :))Lynette from Oxfordshire (15 August 2014) It's fine for the money, lovely scenery but the place needs some tlc.Clare from Cambridge (15 August 2014) Although gurnard pines is set in a lovely place and really easy to get to I was disappointed when I entered the very appealing looking bungalow. When entering the bungalow it was tidy and looked nice, but when you looked closely the place was filthy, the kitchen counter wall by the table was dirty, covered in food stains , which I wiped over but the stains were so ingrained it didn't look any cleaner. The bathroom and shower were dirty the walls behind the toilets were filthy the doors and bins were also dirty. The beds didn't have mattress protectors and the pillows had seen better days. I've paid the same amount of money for a 6 night stay in a devon cottage which was spotless. I do strongly believe that the advertising for gurnard pines is very misleading and very over priced for what you actually get. I will say that the staff were friendly but facilities were lacking for the price. The late entry for booking in 4 oclock would be fine if the place smelt and looked liked it had been cleaned properly, im very disappointed and I will not be staying here again. . Sarah from Portsmouth (15 August 2014) Park appears very tired and unkempt. Facilities very basic and not adequate for families on a budget.Dawn from Wisbech, Cambs (15 August 2014) We said here 17 years ago and it was lovely couldn't fault it but was shocked by how tired it looks now the main building had carpet tiles throughout and a lot were unstuck my daughter tripped over on one and hurt her knee and severel were stuck down with duck tape which looked a sight ! the outdoor pool surroundings under the steps had all broken plastic seating chucked under which was a mess but worst of all the outdoor play area what a shock it was closed with rough fence around weeds growing all over this area no mention that it was closed down as my kids would of enjoyed thatLouise (15 August 2014) Not enough indoor things for children ,and what is there does not work.frFrances from Littlehampton (15 August 2014) Broken items in lodge . needed new carpet about 10years ago. Needs updating. Christopher from Grantham (11 August 2014) I was very disappointed by customer service. We dropped the only key to our accommodation and it was handed into reception at noon. Despite knowing we would have no way to get in staff didn't contact us to warn us and the out of hours service took 45 minutes to reply, by which time we'd forced a window as not secure! and it was pouring with rain. There was no coffee available as coffee machine was broken, the bar shut at 9pm as 'summer hours' hadn't started (middle of august?). that said pools are lovely, great bar when its open and location is great .particularly for cowes week.Customer 16 (11 August 2014) Lovely location, only down side was the cabin could have been cleaner and the decor was tired with broken drawers etc.Angela from Mansfield (11 August 2014) Been going to gurnard pines for over 25 years. Was a very popular place back then and always fully booked. Still is very nice but a few small things let it down. The maintenance on the site really needs some fine tuning. We had a light that didn't work and it wasn't the bulb. The tv remotes had either flat batteries or no batteries. The balcony around the villa needed a good sanding down and a paint up. The windows and paintwork around the windows was filthy externally and were covered in cobwebs. a quick wipe over was all that was needed to fix this. There was no evening entertainment and the bar closed very early but this didn't bother us as we have 2 small children. On the plus side the villas are really nice and comfortable and everything was lovely inside. Really enjoyed my stay there for cowes week 2014 though very nice and peaceful. Overall very impressed and a very good price considering it was cowes week. Would I stay there again?. well yes have already booked 2 weeks for 2015. Would recommend this place and both my daughters cant wait to get back there again next year. Even the mrs loved it and felt totally at home there. Come on gurnard pines sort out the silly problems which are very easily fixed. Very nice place and staff very pleasant, already looking forward to next years stay. Terry from London (11 August 2014) This was our holiday after my husband returned from a. Your of duty, we were really. Looking forward to all the things the website promised, it was a big let down. The lodge was tired and dirty, there was very little for my four year old to do and the outside play area was broken so at six thirtynothing on site for any of te children to do.Paula from Norwich (08 August 2014) Was really disappointed that the childrens playground was shut and taped up. The facilities were non exsistened, no shop, no clubhouse or evening entertainment, no launderette. Very disappointed. . Sharon from Croydon (08 August 2014) Lovely grounds and the people were very friendly. The accommodation could do with some tlc and the facilities would benefit from evening entertainment and maybe a shop. We had a terrific holiday though overall!Charlotte (08 August 2014) It was excellent value for money, enjoyed by all especially the granddaughter. The only minor criticism was the lack of drawers in the double bedroomKenneth from Tollerton, Nottingham (08 August 2014) I understand that prices goes up during summer holidays which is a shame. I really enjoyed the lodge, the staff where all very helpful. The bed was really uncomfortable but what really let down the whole area was the pool. I have never seen such a dirty pool. I don't mind stained grout lines but where we walked the black came up. It was really gross. The deck chairs needed a good wash and the whole area had a feel of neglect. Also the pool hours where really limiting.Corina from Redhill (08 August 2014) Travelled with our grand children and found the facilities suited them to the ground. Great location just far enough from the hustle and bustle of cowes, but as we travelled with transport, no issues identified.Monique from Andover (08 August 2014) The accommodation was old, tired and worn. The outside play area was bordered off with 'dangerous, do not use' signs all around it. The 'go active' activities were not available for two days out of our five day stay. And all were of an extra charge to what we had already paid for the holiday. Not the best place to stay very overpriced for what was included. Sharon from Kent (08 August 2014) Great location to explore the island.Gareth (04 August 2014) No shop - bar closed at 9 - no children's play area - not enough sun beds by pool - hole in floor by pool covered by cone!Kerry from Essex (01 August 2014) The lodges were spacious but needed updating. There wasn't a lot of equipment in the kitchen but we ate out most nights. Our lodge was by the swings which unfortunately was out of use which was a shame as we had a toddler with us, also the bins were directly outside, this would look better if they were enclosed. We arrived a little early but there was no way they would give the key any earlier than 4pm.Confirmed Holidaymaker (01 August 2014) Although the staff were lovely and the location great. The park itself left a lot to be desired. . the lodge was spacious but in need of a damn good clean. We managed to get the staff to replace the mouldy shower curtain but lived with the dust and cobwebs on the inside, and the badly maintained, rotten decking and blocked guttering on the outside. . the only childrens park in the place was fenced off (and had been for over a year apparently!). . the lodge had no washing machine, and there wasn't anything on site which would've been really handy. . there was also no shop on site so we had to drive to aldi a couple of miles away to buy our provisions for the week. . the outdoor pool was good but there weren't enough sun beds (a pile of broken ones were shoved in a corner). . we had a lovely week on the isle of wight due to fantastic weather and some lovely days out. . we would definitely return to the island but not to gurnard pines.Sarah from Horndean, Hampshire (01 August 2014) The reception staff were very friendly and helpful.due to the great weather, we didn't use the leisure facilities, but there was a wide variety of exercises classes available.the go -active programme would suit primary school age children.the teenagers sat in the cafe in the evening to use wifi!Amanda from Lincolnshire (01 August 2014) Terrible never at this park againMartin from Swindon (01 August 2014) The staff were friendly and helpfull. The accommodation was tatty, very basic and worn out for the amount of money it cost. we had to call out maintance as nail were sticking out from the door frames which our children caught their arms on. the outdoor pool could of used a deep clean. And areas nit meant for the public huse but were visible had broken seats ect amd rubbish which looked horrible. The children's play parks were shut and unusable. the indoor pool and gym area looked as though it has had alot of money spent on it. It was just a shame the rest of the park was so tired and tatty especially at the start of the summer holiday season.Natalie from Portsmouth (01 August 2014) The staff were great always happy to help. Facilities were good but the state of the chalet left alot to be desired . the carpet was stained,sofa ripped,dirty cutlery and crockery, work tops dirty. We had to clean everything before we could use it . the bed were very uncomfortable.Customer 33 (01 August 2014) Lodges spaced good distance apart in a quiet location.Customer 34 from Sandhurst, Kent (01 August 2014) The lodges we're in lovely surroundings. The park has it's own nature trail but with so much to do on the island we didn't get a chance to explore it. the only downsides to the park were that the outside pool is only open 12-5. We had such lovely weather that it could have been used for much longer. Also the park was closed for a refitSarah from Kent (28 July 2014) The site was great for a base to explore the isle of wight. The children loved the outdoor pool even if it did have funny opening times. The downside was there weren't enough sun loungers/chairs for individuals.Victoria (28 July 2014) No atmosphere anywhere around the parc.Andy from Essex (25 July 2014) Overall, a good base from which to visit the island if you want somewhere decent but not luxurious. not sure whether we would recommend it to someone looking to spend most of their time on site. . location is good - quiet, plenty of trees, the odd sea view. . villa [no. 256, a "classic villa 3"] was big enough, very clean, and had everything we needed with a couple of annoying exceptions (thin, uncomfortable pillows; and no oven gloves - even when we asked we were only given a thin hand towel to use - that's a safety issue not just annoying). . the site (or at least our bit of it) looked slightly as though it had seen better days, but it didn't really matter, except for the dilapidated fenced off playground which was a disappointment for the smaller kids. . the outdoor pool was good, but it would be nice if it opened a bit later than 5pm - if you've been out for the day it gives you little or no time to use it, and the indoor pool was but a poor second to outdoors as far as the kids were concerned, especially on hot days. . we didn't try the food or organised activities so can't comment on those. James from Uk (25 July 2014) I would recommend this place because it is so reasonably priced, and the accommodation is spacious and fairly clean. But many improvements could be made.Jo (25 July 2014) My husband and I would definitely return to gurnard pines. the indoor and outdoor pools were wonderful. the only tiny critisicm of the outdoor pool would be that there were no umberellas with the sun loungers and it was extremely hot but then again we didn't ask the staff re this. the log cabin was clean and had all the amenities required for a self-catering holiday. would definitely recommend it for a quieter family holiday.John from Farnborough, Hants (25 July 2014) The park is suffering from a major lack of investment in its facilities. The staff are ok, the general manager is very good, and helpful. The facilities, ie clubs etc are from 7+ though it says 5+ on the website. the food in the resort is terrible. Like a greasy spoon. there is no entertainment at night. the actual chalets are ok, fine to use as a base to explore the iow but dont expect too much from the resort itself. we had a 5 year old and 11m old, the chalet was all on one floor so great for him crawling, though it was roasting hot when we went. You probably need a fan to cool down.Philip from Harrogate (25 July 2014) It was a nice place that we could come back to after a day out.Marian from London (21 July 2014) The lodge was a great size and comfortable however the windows were filthy on the outside and so were the doors and window frames. the guttering was full up and again filthy. the properties either side had clean windows but not ours. when you are paying the full price for a week you expect attention to detail such as cleaning the windows and surrounds. the indoor pool was fantasticAngela from Hemel Hempstead (18 July 2014) We were generally pleased with the accommodation, it was spacious, nicely furnished and everything worked. The hot tub on the deck was terrific and well serviced , attended to every two days. . . however, the following need addressing ; a drop of 2 feet outside the exterior door to master bedroom makes this a dangerous emergency exit, kitchen knives useless, frying pan dreadful, no scissors , cafetiere, crockery drying rack, hairdryer, or oven mitts. Very feeble pillows, wafer thin, remotes all need new batteries. Nasty plastic stemware, ruined by dishwasher. A small welcome pack would have been useful, a few dishwasher tablets, dish mop etc especially as there is no shop on site. . the site was very tired, some of the privately owned units had a chaos of pots, garden ornaments etc outside, making the whole site look very messy. . . the worst aspect were the facilities. This site is advertised as a go active site, we arrived in friday 11 july there were no activities at all on saturday and sunday. The aqua scooters and scuba were out of action all week. The indoor pool was freezing and for the majority of the time was dedicated to lane swimming and lessons, the outdoor pool was only open from 12.30pm until 5pm, in july !!! no shop, no launderette. The cafe was understaffed. We waited 35 minutes for a plate of chips and after 25 minutes saw the manager run in with car keys in one hand and a bag of frozen chips in the other. The coffee machine was out of action all week and only instant was available. The whole site looked bleak and most guests walking about looked bored. It is simply not good enough to use an excuse that it was a quiet time, or only just within high season, we paid the same as if we had stayed during the busiest time, we expected the same level of activities and facilities, we did not get them. Thank goodness the isle of wight has a lot to offer because we saw no reason to stay on site.Marion from Bristol (18 July 2014) We booked this particular park as it offered the go active programme for our two grandsons, aged 9 and 12 but on arrival discovered that the snorkelling/seascooter (which they were keen to try) equipment had not arrived. the outdoor pool only opened 12.00-17.00, and the children's playground was not open at all. The boys had been keen to participate in the go active programme but for their ages this was restricted to the middle of the day allowing little time to explore other attractions on the island.Linda (18 July 2014) Friendly staffVidhu (18 July 2014) We have visited the site on numerous occasions and it's getting very tired looking there were no outside play park , the whole site needs revamping very disappointedAllison from Kent (14 July 2014) Great accomodation and facilities. Would definitely go againAnne from Leicester (14 July 2014) The facilities at gurnard pines were adequate however, during our week there the outside pool was closed (despite the very hot weather) and the outside children's play area was also closed.Leah from Walton-On-Thames (14 July 2014) We expected there to be some sort of evening entertainment and there was not. For the amount we paid, it just wasn't worth it. We enjoyed our holiday but spent very little time at the resort. Our son is a year old and both the indoor pool and outdoor pool was very cold so we couldn't even enjoy those things. We had a hot tub with our room, which was cold and didn't appear to work very well.Jade from Portsmouth (11 July 2014) The villia we was staying in wasnt very clean. I had to clean the kitchen before cooking in it and plates etc.. the tv was horrible. When watching a dvd in the evenings there was a red line going though the picture and the colour was green only. There wasnt alot of parking around the park. We had to park behind were we was staying and walk ages to get to the place. There was a play park that you shouldnt go in and all the numbers on the villias were all over the place which made it very hard to find were we was staying. Overall not good. We will not be staying again. Waste of money.Chanel from Herne Bay (11 July 2014) We had a lovely time at gunard pines. The site was in a lovely setting with lots to do. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The only issues we had was some of the fixtures in the villa needed a little attention/maintenance., to attain the highest level possible. Good value for money package. Angela from Lincoln (11 July 2014) Overall a good impression. The site is a largely residential site although a lot of properties are for sale. In keeping with the rest of the island, it appears that investment in the facilities is finally happening. The property stayed in was clean and tidy. It does not comply with mobility requirements and this needs to be addressed. Many parts of the site were either closed or fenced off. I guess as the season gets going this will improve. Would I stay again, yes but only for the hugely discounted price that I paid. Is it worth the brochure price, no.Jon from Weston Super Mare (07 July 2014) Very nice quiet park, lodges were very nice.Kim from Southampton (07 July 2014) It's a shame that the accommodation is so scruffy and dirty because in all other respects this is a good holiday park especially for children. The staff are excellent.Susan from Poole (07 July 2014) I was concerned with the reviews I had seen however it was very much better and I would like to go againEric from Leamington Spa (07 July 2014) Everything in good working order. . only a niggle, but duvets are smallMoira (07 July 2014) We booked into a lodge for a weekend break. Site was clean and quiet. Lodge was a lovely size but filthy! every light was covered in old cobwebs! serious mould in bathrooms and the toilet leaked every day. The windows were dirty and again covered in webs. We had food on the sofa from previous people. We were trying it out to see if we'd bring our children! I thought being so close to peak season these would be sparkling or at least clean! our bed was totally uncomfortable and our draws were so broke you'd put things in the top for them to fall straight to the bottom! unhappy holiday makers!Rachel from Ditchling (07 July 2014) Lodges and facilities looking a bit tired and needs some new investment. Staff very friendly and helpfulBill from Bromley (06 July 2014) Bar staff arein need of urgent need of training bar tending skills and customer careJim from Crowborough (04 July 2014) The cabin was dirty and completely out of date, used the pool twice both occasions closed early - second occasion I was cut on my leg by faulty deck chair- the location is beautiful but I would not stay at curnard pines again. Half of the advertised attractions where close 'in july' not enough staff dated decor and facilities....Peter from Plymouth (04 July 2014) Basic accomodation. Needs updating but fine for a base. Not much on the site, the childrens play area needs repairing after storm damage. Would be handy to have a shop on siteKim from Isle Of Wight Cowes (04 July 2014) The site was nice and quiet but the accommodation was very dated. Old furniture was past it's sell by date and decking was rotten and possibly dangerous. Television was very old. Bar staff unhelpful and surly. Did not stay on site went out all day and only came back to sleep. Jackie from Lancing (02 July 2014) A little disappointed with the cleaning. The shower in the en-suite needs attention, the bin I could write my name in and the air vent was filthy. The dinning chairs need upholstering. We went there first in 1997 when all was new, sadly people have split various things over the chairs and they don't look great. They need covering with something you can wipe down. But the place and the views were great.Pauline from Melksham (30 June 2014) We chose gurnard pines as we have stayed there several times in the past. as we are not particularly fond of participating in activities such as gym, line dancing or similar we cannot give an opinion as to the value of these facilities. we can remember gurnard pines when there was a crazy putting, small shop, hair dressing salon and good restaurant, all of which we used to the full when we stayed.Christine from Bishop'S Stortford (30 June 2014) Guarnard itself is lovely but disappointed in holiday site itself andf elt site tot worth moneyTracey from Lowestoft (27 June 2014) This is a very nice site there is no loud club house. . a little run down but the value for money is 5 star. . will be back I am very fussy but I just love the site and relaxed park ,. . but there is a lot of sports for the young ones pool gym very clean . . this is not a full on club house entertainment site just a nice quality family siteRaymond from Herne Bay (27 June 2014) Beautiful friendly park, very clean, excellent facilities.Lee from West Midlands (23 June 2014) Location and staff great, but villa, although spacious was a bit tired and in need of updating.Janet (23 June 2014) What happend to gurnard pines, used to be a great place to stay in. We will never go there again, and will sadly not recommend it to anyone.Anna from Iceland (20 June 2014) Nice place and the staff were helpful, the decor could do with an update as the carpet in reception is taped together. But in general the facilities were clean and pleasant.Martin from Canterbury (02 June 2014) The accommodation is quite basic and i'll be honest the floors were rather dirty but the bedding and all the other important areas were clean. it is a great base to explore the island but we didn't tend to hang around all day here, far better places to see.Customer 72 from Reading (02 June 2014) Me and my husband came in 2004 on our honeymoon and we had a fantastic time everything was spot on. But this time we was very disappointed. The park was closed off so my son couldn't play and inside the villa sofa looked dirty,the hoover went bang because it hadn't been tested for 3 years!. as u look around the villa and the gurnard pines and swimming pool that had very green walls,mans changing room awful everthing looks tired and needs improving. U have started with the ladys changing room and that is brilliant. I love the soft play that my son used. Once u have undated gurnard pines then it will be worth the money,but at the moment we didn't feel it was value for money.Helen (02 June 2014) Facilities need updating. Bar closed 9pm. Pool tiling appeared grubby. Some 'lodges' were very unkempt, having said that our 3 bed accommodation looked better. Sofas were broken though, en suite shower room grubby and tiling stained. Dining chair seats heavily stained. Kitchen well equipped. Booked holiday so that 3 year old would be entertained and adults would have somewhere to go on site, this was not possible. Indoor play area for children appeared dirty and smelt. Stephanie from Canterbury (30 May 2014) Clean, spacious, well equipped accommodation and friendly staff. A good base for exploring the iowGraham from Bournemouth (30 May 2014) Stayed here may half term. Found the staff really helpful and the lodge was clean. My sons loved the soft play.Penny (30 May 2014) The accommodation is fine. it isn't amazing and looks a bit miserable but it is clean and spacious and the complex has good facilities.Victoria (30 May 2014) Great place!Christine from Reading (23 May 2014) Slightly difficult for us locationwise as we came without a car and it is not very accesible by bus. other than that it was very nice.Valerie from Brentford (23 May 2014) Helpful staff prior to arrival and at check in. The site is set in a peaceful location with plenty of space around the villas. We did not use any of the facilities during our weekend stay as we were on the iow to visit family but it all looked clean and well presented.Bobbie from London (19 May 2014) We all had a great time shame the outside park was closed but was still loads to do soft play inside swimming pool bar fitness little arcade we had the added bonus of a hot tube so was nice to go back to at the end of the day so many different things to do on the island would recommendLisa (12 May 2014) We have been a few times now. Apparently these bungalows are maintenance checked before we go in. Why didn't the main light work in the en-suite shower room, also the outside light and the dining room. We did not complain about at the time because it was fairly trivial. But it should have been picked up.Moira from Gunard Pines (09 May 2014) Acomadation was very spacious, hot tub was great, made the holiday, great to relax in morn, night. Always lovely and warm, very privately set. Good place to stay for a base, nice to come back to after days out, quite, tranquil setting. Swimming pool, changing roomsn very clean. Staff very helpful with supplying armbands, etc for young children. Did not use gym, but looked good equipted. Nice place to stay in isle of wightClare from Grimsby (05 May 2014) The facilities were quite poor and shabby. Not great value for moneyConfirmed Holidaymaker (28 April 2014) Staff were unfriendly and unhelpfulSandra (28 April 2014) Pool and function room great for what we needed. bar understaffed (one member at 7.00pm doing drink & food) no cold wine or ice available !Claire from Southampton (28 April 2014) Potential for this location is vast but with the management unwilling to adapt to needs ie failing to put on enough staff and turning down business I would struggle to re book.Laura from Gurnards Pines Gurnard (28 April 2014) The website is very misleading - I thought hidat accommodation was in a pine lodge but no we were in a concrete bungalow amongst residential bungalows that we're shabby & more like staying in the middle of a grubby housing estate. Only the pine lodges around the pond look anything like a holiday home.Julie from Hampshire (28 April 2014) A satisfactory early season breappStewart from Horsham (25 April 2014) We loved to stay there, some staffs are not that helpful and not available whenever you need them. Reception is very quite on holiday times. Shower was not working fine. Good cleanness, bed good, very manageable in villas and around. we enjoyed a lot and have a good fun. Kitchen clean and en-suit spacious. The bad thing is, they are not providing hand wash or soaps. There is only one shop nearby. So difficult to find shopping area.everything good.Parthiv from London (21 April 2014) Nice spacious villa but need new mattresses and updatingSamina (21 April 2014) Have stayed many times, first time in log cabin, prefer the chalets, will go again.Richard (21 April 2014) Love going to gurnard pines, villas are very nice.Lorraine from Buxted (18 April 2014) Staff on arrival were not helpful and it took over an hour to check in due to the staff being unorganised. The staff in the bar were not particularly helpful at any point throughout stay.Kelly (11 April 2014) The chalet was great, the hot tub was great, the staff were as helpful as they could be. The big disappointment was that the children s play area was closed and very limited facilities available, ie the dinning room was closed with only a very small bar area in the cafe which was not suitable for evening, and no evening entertainment.David from St Marys Bay (11 April 2014) Really not happy with the holiday park!. no play park, no evening entertainment, no bar just a canteen with a couple of taps and they were out of beer!. hot tub wasn't working, freezer full of ice, tv buzzing, glasses broken cold tap not turning off! the list is endless avoid at all costRoger from Lydd (11 April 2014) We have stayed at gurnard many times - the location and staff have aways been friendly. we have stayed in both the lodge and villas - . . however I felt this year the standard of the accomodation and the facilities have gone down due to the lack of investment in the the resort. The pool area was green around the pool and I believe this was due to a broken air conditioner. this still had not been fixed and as a result the walls were green with mould. . the sea scooters were broken and again on order and so were the water waltzers. . villa was clean - however there was not a tin opener, cork screw, grater, a sharp knife to use, from memory all these things had been provided before. . the tv wasn't working properly, the sound was buzzing which got worse after half an hour and we had to switch it off for the time we stayed there. . the archery was good .Confirmed Holidaymaker from London (07 April 2014) Weekend break out of season so suited our needs. The site facilities and programmes were minimum but site itself great.James from Dartford (31 March 2014) Despratly needs a shop ,bar and food closes at 5 not good ,no bbq alowed but very peaceful location would recomend lodges rather than villas very little if any sports happening off peak,Alice from Burnham Bucks (17 March 2014) We spent a long weekend in march and disappointed when the bar closed at 5pm when we were forced to find the local pub for a drink and entertainment . we stayed on a very nice bungalow with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms , it was clean and well equipped and we have no complaints. we would come again if there was an open bar and some entertainment for the evenings but I realise they it was a quiet time and perhaps not viable to keep the bar open for the evenings but one member of staff to run the bar would surely get customer satisfaction and attract more people out of season. Roger from Stroud, Gloucestershire . (17 March 2014) Gurnard pines was very disappointing, even the staff seemed as though they didn't want to be there! we were the only guests. The facilities were awful - everything was closed or broken. The receptionist explained to me that it was better value to purchase the go active activities in bulk but there was only 1 activity on offer!! my husband and son played pool in the bar one day and they finished just before 5pm, the barmaid followed them to the door and bolted the door behind them - it just didn't make them feel welcome. There were tiles missing in the swimming pool changing rooms, and lockers with keys but no bands. The outside area was a mess. It looked as though the resort had shut down for the winter - if it was shut why did they accept our booking?Vanessa from Worthing (10 March 2014) We have stayed here three times and it has a wonderful homely feel. The chalets are very clean and well equipped, the heating and water is very efficient, especially as we stay in february!Sharon from Reading (21 February 2014) Loved it! so did my 2 year old.. we spend most of our time giving mummy and new baby a break and went swimming and in monkey mansion!Robert from St Albans (10 February 2014) It's great all around gurnard and an enjoyable stroll into cowes - weather permitting! the chalets are very roomy and usually contain all you need. Chalets could do with a more thorough clean between guests. We have been to gurnard pines over 4 times now and simply love the peaceful location.Lucy from Herne Bay, Kent (10 February 2014) Really diasopionted wouldn't go again ended up going home early as it was that bad !!Tracy from Eastleigh (03 February 2014) Only thing missing is a small indoor splash pool for younger children.Ruth from Rugby (20 January 2014) Excellent park, with lots to do if you want it! or relax like we did!!!Emma from Gosport (10 January 2014) Site is falling apart. Swimming pool particularly grim, staffing levels too low meaning the few there struggled to cope with the level of people. Broken equipment in children's soft play area too.David from Reigate (30 December 2013) All facilities were closed in the evening and it would have been good to have somewhere to socialise. the member of staff who booked me in was a little odd but pleasant enough. No free view box in accommodation on arrival and had to wait a few hours before this was rectified. other than these few issues the accommodation and facilities were comfortable and good value for money.Michelle from Pontypool (30 December 2013) Excellent. Superb facilities!Seongwoo (27 December 2013) Accommodation was clean and tidy, but dated.Kim (18 November 2013) Getting into and out of the park was a nightmare. it is down a thin windy road and it can be extremely busy at times meaning you had to keep stopping as rude drivers pushed past almost taking your wing mirror out. the park entrance is on a mini round about. if someone was coming out of the park as you were trying to get in, you had to be careful not to mount the curb. . ladies swimming pool changing rooms were lovely, heated and amazing. I think they were still working on the mens though by what I heard. the roads in the park were potholed everywhere but they were working on the main one as we were leaving.Cat from Dorset (15 November 2013) Lovely surroundings. The downside is the lack of public transport services to the park. The accommodation is spacious but slightly shabby and could do with updating. Staff are brilliant and very helpful.Catherine from Pudsey, Leeds (11 November 2013) We had an awful noise coming from the boiler which meant that we didn't sleep whilst we were there - I spoke to the reception staff who weren't interested. shame as we had been 3 times before - we will not be going back.Confirmed Holidaymaker from Sussex (04 November 2013) Although the lodge was nice, expected better.spec for the price. When I booked I asked if there was entertainment and I was told there would be on most nights! but it was only karaoke on the saturday night, I don't call that entertainment, that's entertaining yourself! its not a holiday, it's just a glorified gym!Raymond from Southampton (28 October 2013) The lodges could do with updating!Laura from Southampton (25 October 2013) Good value for moneySue from Leicestershire (25 October 2013) We needed a base to tour the island and the accommodation and facilities did not let us down a few issues to start with but dealt with swiftly by staff.Timothy from Swindon (21 October 2013) Good value holiday. A good base for exploring the isle of wight.Mark from Poynton (18 October 2013) Exellent stay at gurnard pines, I would certainly recommend to anyone who want's a good relaxing holiday, thanks a great break.Kenneth from Swansea (14 October 2013) We have stayed here before and had no problems, but this time we were really let down. The lodge was not very clean, there were cobwebs and dirt every were inside and out. The whole lodge needed a good clean inside and out especially the windows. The heating was not working, and because we arrived very late we could not get it sorted until the next day, it should have been checked and put on before we arrived,( it was a very cold night). beds were very uncomfortable and quilts were very thin. Next time we will book a bungalow.Julie from St Mabyn (14 October 2013) Despite being out of season, we found the staff as refreshed and helpful as if they were at the start of season. We still were able to use he waterwalkers and had exclusive use for our children. We would certainly consider coming back in the summer.Sara from Kenilworth (14 October 2013) Excellent holiday good value too. This was our 3rd visit and would definitely return.Pauline from Bedfordshire (11 October 2013) We were put in a chalet opposite large bins with some needing emptying. A small detials that could have easily been solved.Kim from Reigate (07 October 2013) Facilities seemed to be used more by the local community than guests. Lodges in need of quite an amount of upgrading and refurbishment. Confused that most of the site seemed to have many permanent residents not holidaymakersPeter (27 September 2013) Lodge and locationKevin from Colchester (13 September 2013) We could park right outside the villa, it was quiet at night no noise at all and we liked having our own hot tub.Linda from Portsmouth (13 September 2013) Nice and peaceful , but perfect for seeing rest of the islandRobert (13 September 2013) Swimming area was fine, pool good with a lifeguard on duty.Pauline from Stanton Drew Bristol (13 September 2013) Monkey mansion soft play area and swimming pool.Steve from Ashington (02 September 2013) Excellent pools and changing facilities.Jenny from Cambridge (02 September 2013) Clean bedlinen, quiet location.Judy from Kirkby (02 September 2013) The weather. . . Martyn from St Albans (02 September 2013) Spacious villas, good facilities, . . used swimming pools and childrens indoor play areaLiz from Hemel Hempstead (30 August 2013) Safe surrounding.
