Reviewer: Magsmac 1 review from this member

 2 ladies shower rooms each with its own toilet and washbasin and under floor heating. Kept very clean, with hand wash and ample supply of toilet tissue and hand drying tissue.

Small 10 unit site, very quiet and picturesque on banks of river Ouse.

Immaculate licenced cafe. Just under £9 for 2 pints of lager, Didn't eat here so can't comment on food.

Staff friendly and helpful. Bus stop not very far from entrance.

 Nice site as you overlook the river & it is well kept, Only 2 down points, the toilet/shower block is still not finished?? Looking on here the work has been going on well over a year?? They do give you access to the marina shower block that is excellent but is a very long way to walk especially in the middle of the night!

2nd point is the rubbish bins require emptying more often.

Other than that this site is excellent, cafe on site is a good place to eat with lovely riverside seating, bus stop outside gate or park & ride a mile away. Good pub within walking distance.

All in all a very nice site just needs the 2 issues above sorting out.

 Had a lovely may bank holiday here, new shower block been built so we were told to use the marina showers, they were fab, we had a pitch on the river front, it was amazing, there is a nice cafe that sells alcohol too and tables looking over the river, we only live 18 miles away but its one of our favourite places to visit and there is a bus stop at the entrance that takes you direct into York only 10mins ride for £2. 00. We love it.

 We have just spent a lovely two nights at York Marina. This is a fantastic location for visiting York and has the bonus of beautiful views across the river. It is a peaceful, secure site and is close to route 65 of the National Cycle Trail from York to Selby. There is a lovely pub close by and the site has a shop and cafe on site, an added bonus. The facilities are as good as many, heated shower and toilets and the staff are friendly and helpful. What more can you ask for!

 At time of visiting (June 2014) was undergoing building extension to toilets. Workmen storing tools and cables in Ladies and going back and forth in there when females inside. Gents toilet attached to yard/workshop and despite booking reply stating that key will be given for toilets they are used by staff in the workshop and customers visiting the workshop/shop/cafe, try having a shower and shave in a public toilet in you local High Street and you might get the picture! The grass site itself had been fairly recently reinstated(poorly) after what appeared to be drainage work and as such these particular areas were very muddy after rain. I complained to the office staff about the situation and was assured this would be passed to the manager, I heard nothing after that. I followed this with an email complaint to the management, still no reply. I have now left this in the hands of the Caravan Club. £25 per night!, a liberty. Despite all of this negative feedback it is in a very good location with terrific views of the river and does have the potential to be a good site but for the money need to sort out the public toilets, ground conditions and the poor management.

 Just returned from York marina having spent 3 lovely nights there, site is very well run and clean and tidy, fantastic views from your caravans looking over the river and the marina, we will be returning for a longer stay in 2014 but I suggest to everyone to book early because this site will only get more popular.

You receive a gate card when you book in which allows you to come and go as you please and means your caravan is safe and secure,

Reviewer: Tardbaz 1 review from this member

 Nicely situated over looking the river and boats. Easy to get the bus into York centre and good for walks. Didn't use the shop or café so can't comment. Hope they provide washing up facilities in the future, although only a CL site would think charges reflect additional service. Now for the negative, in the 2 days we were on site the ladies toilet block was not cleaned, or if was, not to a good standard. Also noticed skirting edges very dirty and shower very grubby, I had to clean before use which is a shame on a new block. Sorry, get this sorted and would return because of location.

 We have just returned from a wonderful weekend at York Marina, which I booked at the last minute on the Friday we wished to stay.

From when I booked to the moment I hooked up to leave, every member of staff could not do enough to help.

The facilities and location were fantastic!

This site is a great find, and we will definitely return.

A big thank you to everyone involved!

Oh I nearly forgot, the boat hire was an added bonus, lots of fun and very enjoyable. If you decide to stay give it a go, you will love it, we did!

 Nice site new toilet block in Marina a few mins walk from main area, they have a slip way but declined to let me use it, they also declined to let me have my 11 ft Dory boat any where on the site. I paid them all up front £480.00 for about three weeks further to cover bank holidays, when I asked about the slip way, they said sorry not allowed. I then asked for a refund and cancelled my bookings which in turn they did. Any one thinking they can use the slip way if you are staying on site, please be aware this is not allowed even though the advertise this facility.

 What a lovely site. Views hard to beat and one of the most relaxing sites we have ever stayed at. The marina toilet block was luxurious and having the shop and small café/bar was a treat. We did think at £21 per night it was pricey for a C. L but the facilities are more like a full site so the cost wasn’t as grudged as it might have been. Dishwashing sinks would be a nice addition. The proximity to York was the attraction for us in the first place but we would recommend a weekend at the marina with dinner at the Blacksmiths Arms just to spoil yourself if you are anywhere near.
