  • "The beds are like concrete absolutely no give in the mattress at all dreaded going to bed but since it was a toss up between there and the sofas which are equally uncomfortable and so low they were nigh impossible to get off without help."

    Moving onto the lavatory seats that remained broken despite reporting them. There was no welcome note to let you know important information during your stay. Cleanliness.....we didn't go barefoot as the floor was sticky and gritty. Once we tracked down whereabouts of the hoover, we found it full with what can only be described as brown silt and dirt. So emptied and used it the lounge we emptied 3 times to get the same brown dirt and twice more for the hall and the bedrooms. Window ledges were equally dirty. Our dog is a white dog and had recently been washed and groomed. On returning home she had to be washed again as she was yellow/brown. Towels provided are hard and tired.Cooking utensils and pans etc. really need to be replaced as well used and tired All in all this was a huge disappointment. As we are at the beginning of the season I would expect this to be in A1 condition where cleanliness is concerned and it was certainly not that. It is such a shame as the roof had been recently refelted and the lodge is in a very quiet cul de sac in such a lovely setting.

    Thanks for your feedback, we have had a very busy season since February including Easter and apologies if on any previous occasion dogs have potentially come in from the rain and created any lingering odour. We have now had the carpet deep cleaned. We have repaired the toilet and will check the bed. We will replace the mattress topper on the king bed and will look at adding one to the single beds in the future. The sofas are 2 years old and we have not had any concerns re their height before but will monitor that. Property instructions are usually available but can occasionally go astray so we will look to replace them. The hoover is only a month old and moving forward we make sure that it is emptied every changeover. We will also check the utensils and replace if required. We are glad that you found the property quiet and in a lovely setting. Property Owner

  • "Before we went on this holiday the reviews changed from good to bad."

    We even tried to cancel it but this proved impossible. I had also been assured that the property was going to be closed for a month before our visit to clean it thoroughly etc which obviously wasn’t done. Pros: lovely park, great facilities, so much so we’ve booked another holiday there BUT THROUGH THEM NOT THIS ONE. Cons: shame I can’t add pictures. It was very dirty, there were soap marks still in the soap tray (old marks at that), there was masses of black hair in the plug hole, the cobwebs you could swing from, the beds were dreadfully uncomfortable and the bedding looked like had been used for decades and was a dull grey. The place stunk of wet dog on entering and so did the hoover. A couple of chairs were broken and dangerous the list goes on. Would never use that lodge again

    The lodge is spacious with a lovely wrap around veranda with a gate so our dogs were safe. The only down side was the tired bedding and towels. These really need updating asap.

    And family. The beds are the worst thing about the lodge,they all need new mattresses and bedlinen. The patio.doors need looking at as they are not secure and there are no instructions about the complex or who to contact in an emergency. The lodge has everything you need for a family stay it is large and clean but definitely needs upgrading

  • "On arrival was amazed at the beautiful location of the lodge in a lovely cul de sac and spaced well from other lodges."

    However at first sight you could see the lodge was very tied and in desperate need of TLC, cheap plastic chairs and a paste table on what could be a great veranda area (glad we did not have the weather to want and sit out there). On entering met with a stale smell of dogs. The lodge was very dated and again TLC was needed, but it was clean and we were left tea, coffee and milk which was a lovely surprise. The first thing I noticed was no welcome folder, with information on the lodge, information about the site and local areas, departure procedure which was a shame. Small tv in the lodge, the towels although plentiful was ok if you were a small child. The bed linen and towels could do with renewing as thin and bobbly, the mattress in the master room so bad that my husband had to go to another room, definitely needs renewing. The lodge despite the above comment was spacious, but would not stay again because so dated and tired, shame all can be rectified quite cheaply to bring it back to life.

  • "This is a a tired and unloved chalet, a 2star property at 4star pricing."

    The chalet is situated in a nice location on the holiday park. It has a nice end pitch great parking and space around it. It is a short walk to the beach, and there is a lot to explore in the area. But the property isnt clean, it feels like the property hasnt seen much care and attention in at least 10 or 20 years, someone is just milking it for the most profits. The gutter leaks right above the front door giving you a shower as you leave the property. Perhaps because the property is shut up for so long it smells and is hard to shift. The sofas on arrival had biscuit crumbs on them and underneath them is yucky (had to retrieve bits of lego). The bed linen is old and worn. The carpets are sticky to walk on, and when brushing up crumbs from our 5 year off the carpet the mess and dog hair that came up with it was incredible. At the price and rating of the property on the Sykes website, expected better.

    We read reviews before we came again "second time ". A few reviews commented on the cleanliness etc. Well in my opinion, it's brilliant. The property is a little tired, but well kept. Very clean, unless your one of those, that nothing would ever be right. We're booking again. Go see for yourselves. Have a lovely holiday.

  • "As this was our 5th sykes holiday we have come to expect a certain standard, this to us did not meet that."

    No welcome pack, no information pack and cleanliness is clearly not a priority. The lodge was adequate but we don't expect to have to clean things before use when coming on holiday. There was mouldy food lodged in the back of the fridge, the sink underneath the bowl was dirty and generally attention to detail is missed, thick dust in candle holders and on lights, it just feels like it's had a quick wipe over surfaces leaving thick dust in nooks and crannies. We do not like to leave poor reviews but feel people should know what to expect. The photos and description needs updating as there is not a gas bbq or fire as shown. The outside table has a sharp edge where it has been broken. There is an ubundance of cleaning products available but I guess they're not used much! Like I said, lodge was adequate but just feels tired and unloved. Was disappointing to us as regular sykes users.

    The veranda around the lodge was large and very secure for a 2yr old and dog. The key was sometimes difficult to get back in the key lock but with practice we got there. The lodge was situated in a quiet part of the park so it was very restful. The park had good facilities but it would be useful to know approximately how much we would have to pay for the facilities, eg swim pools, entertainment, bar and restaurant.

Isolating switches for the towel rail and extract fans located in bedroom and corridor. Minor maintenance issues - Light bulb missing from one of the bedrooms. Battery powered lights under kitchen cabinets and fragile headboards on single beds need attention. Generally a very enjoyable and pleasant stay.

    However, we did expect it to be clean, especially with the Covid situation. There were cobwebs everywhere, a couple of pillow cases were dirty (looked as though they hadn’t been washed) and table surfaces were grimy. Luckily, we had anti bacterial wipes with us. Then there was the wonky frying pan which didn’t sit safely on the hob and a lack of lighting due to missing light bulbs. The outside light was also broken and didn’t work. The lounge furniture was grubby and uncomfortable. On a positive note, the park is clean and tidy and very well kept and the lodge is situated just about as far from the main entrance as you can get so it was very peaceful. The door to the small twin room which has been mentioned in previous reviews has been replaced. After phoning the owner the morning after we arrived to say about the lighting issues, she arranged for maintenance to come and replace the missing bulbs and the broken outside light. Despite these issues, we had an enjoyable stay and would return to the park but to another lodge as this one is in dire need of updating.

I moved the microwave & toaster & was disgusted by what I found, stains, food debris & even a dog biscuit, no wonder we have an ant problem!! Also, the grill on the cooker isn't working. Although it ignites it won't stay lit. I resorted to the frying pan which has a very uneven base making it dangerously unstable. The corkscrew also has the top snapped off making it unusable! There is a whole panel missing out of the door of the smaller twin room & also in this room the battery in the smoke alarm needs replacing as it beeps continually. The lodge on a whole was OK regards comfort but the sofas were grubby & not the most confortable. The location on the park was ideal but sadly one of the worst places we've stayed in regarding cleanliness.

  • "I've given 1 star as Shorefields is lovely and the chalet was in a good position however the property itself was filthy."

    Not just a skimped clean but neglect over a period of time. The oven was too filthy to use, the grill pan was full of grease, the washing machine drawer was mouldy, no cupboards to put any food in so food was constantly covered in ants, dust and cobwebs everywhere, shower screens dirty, curtains frayed, piece of the door missing on a bedroom, cupboards too full of stuff for our things to go in but the worse was the beds, the sheets were stained and covered in bits and hairs. We had to root, around in one completely full cupboards, to find bedding to change them. The towels and bath mats were extremely thin and small, not sure if the mats were clean either. This would be bad enough in normal times but at present everything is supposed to be extra clean and sanitised. You send out intructions about extra cleaning, no cushions or books around, and then we arrive to this, stuff everywhere and no sign of any cleaning products being used at all. On emailing your company the initial response was that the owner would come and clean the oven. We declined, this should have been done already and was only part of the problem. We were then offered £50! The reviews and the 4 ticks for this property is misleading, apparently you never inspect properties so where do the 4 ticks come from, how can you know if they're fit for occupancy, as this clearly wasn't? I spoke to a different person each time and was just told it's between you and the owner although my contract is with yourselves, the only contact with the owner was a mobile number that no longer worked, as I'd already reported. I have photographic evidence to back up all the above.

    However on our arrival within 5 minutes the power went off and we were without electric for a good 45 minutes, the maintenance man was extremely polite,helpful and very efficient in getting electric switched back on from outside the property (we had obviously tried the trip switch etc inside the property) The owner also came after electricity was back on and was nice enough. I went for a bath and needed to clean it first as although no scum lines it had an abundance of hair in it and on the tiles,not something you want to find. The property is brilliantly equipped for a family holiday and we enjoyed ourselves enormously at the property, maybe though the housekeeper needs to spend a little time organising the cupboards and tidying. Our only other complaint is in the description of the lodge and park it very much leads you to believe you have open access to the swimming pool and all facilities, one of the main reasons for booking the lodge was the use of the swimming pool so we were very disappointed to discover we had to pay to use the pool. All in all an excellent base for a family holiday and would return and recommend.

Each of the bedrooms have been well-furnished to provide ample storage for your personal belongings, while there is also a family bathroom to serve the twin rooms.

To the outside is a wraparound decking where you can enjoy meals alfresco.

On-site you will find a range of facilities to keep the whole family busy; ranging from indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a fully-equipped gym with fitness classes, a children’s play area and a luxurious spa which is perfect for a rainy day.

Fishermen will love the well-stocked carp lake which is just a minute's walk away, plus there are many opportunities for sea fishing along the coast.

When you tire of all that is on offer at the park, venture out to the nearby New Forest National Park, exploring the idyllic glades, ancient woodland, open moors and cliff top walks, or take the short walk to the beach at Milton-on-Sea, where you can spend an afternoon soaking up the sun or paddling in the sea.

For a family day out, consider visiting Peppa Pig World, Marwell Zoo and Monkey World, which are all within close reach of the lodge.

A lovely retreat for families, all-year-round.
