Reviewer: Natsbequiglibum 3 reviews from this member

Had a very pleasant stay here. The staff were friendly and helpful, the site well kept. Clean toilet block, level site, hardstanding pitch used.

Breakfast at the golf course was good.

A good beach for walking, many dog walkers, but they seemed to be pretty good at clearing up after the dogs.

I would visit again.

Reviewer: Phillynomates 4 reviews from this member

This is a great site for visiting Eastbourne and surrounding area and is particularly good for the beach which is just yards away. The wardens were very helpful and friendly and the shop was handy for supplies. The shower block was hot with the heating turned up high so not at all cold even when the temperature dropped overnight. It suites us fine for a short break and would be good for families in summer. Will come again and go further afield as the Seven Sisters Country Park is close and well worth a visit.

We had a 2 week holiday in august on plot 2 and what a great time we had,

A lovely site clean facilities and very friendly staff including. ( cokeacola man) lee.

It's a good site for the beach and sea fishing a 2 minute walk, it's only a a 10 mim

Walk to the marina where it's lovely for a drink and food, harvesters, Mediterranean, and lots more.

Just would like to thank all staff at bay view for a great site and friendly staff, well done.

Plot 4 lovely couple they helped with tips for sea fishing.

Reviewer: Knaus owner 1 review from this member

It is well laid out and in a very good location, but sadly this site is let down by the state of the toilets and showers. Paying 26 per night I would expect these facilities to be of a much higher standard than they are. I will not go into detail but just moping the floor does not constitute cleaning the toilets / showers.

The site is nice but the toilet / showers need a shake up as the cleanliness of these facilities really lets them down badly.

Reviewer: Susana53 3 reviews from this member

This was our first visit to this camp site and we were very impressed with it. The toilet and shower facilities were immaculate and nice and warm. Considering it is October, they were very busy, almost full by the looks of it but it was surprisingly quiet. A short walk to the beach to give the dog a run, and a manageable walking distance down to the marina, and local shops, although for the basics, they do have a small shop on site.

We will definitely go back again.

We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay very much. Staff were very helpful, facilities clean and only a short walk to the beach. Eastbourne is only a short bus ride away or we found very decent parking for our van. Plenty of free parking if you don't mind parking outside of the charging zones. We often visit Eastbourne and this site is really useful for a good weekend away. Obviously September is outside the school holidays so it is probably a lot quieter.

Another return visit for us, although I think the site my have new owners, but still the cleanliness and friendliness is still 100%

We did have a little miss-hap with the booking with a night of our stay being double booked, but the issue was delt with professionally and it didn't spoil our stay too much.

I don't really understand some of the negative reviews written about this site. We come here 4 times a year and love it so much, we keep coming back. The site is dog friendly which is a big bonus, the owners/staff are extremely friendly and welcoming, the site is right on a private beach were you can fish, walk the dogs, etc. The toilet block is clean but if it does get the occasional cob-web, that is what I would expect from being outside it the UK environment. If you don't like cobwebs then, maybe you should start thinking about giving up camping and holidaying in a hotel environment.

Reviewer: Tentadventurer 4 reviews from this member

I'll be honest, this is the first site I've been to in about 4 years that I was less than impressed with!

On arrival, the staff were very welcoming and the site looked well manicured. We were put on the overspill field. The main centre of the field was pretty much empty but for whatever reason they placed us between two other tents. It was an unnecessary squeeze between them considering the majority of the pitches on this field were empty. We struggled to get our car onto the pitch despite pitching right to the line.

The toilet block was poor. Very dirty with cobwebs etc. Only 2 toilets and 2 showers. The basins were in the cubicles so you had to use up a cubicle while getting washed which meant there were often queues in the morning. The set-up was very awkward! Then to top it off there was no hot water in the mornings, I tried at 6. 30am, 7. 30am and 8am and only cold!

The washing up facilities were adequate but, again, would benefit from a good clean! I don't particularly want to watch a spider eating a moth on the drainer!

Whilst we were staying there was a large group spread over several pitches that included some older (18/19) year old lads. As soon as the weather was good they had great fun kicking a football from one end of he field to the other with no regard to the force at which it was hotting cars and tents (despite the no ball games rule). They also enjoyed riding about at 20mph on an electric scooter and doing wheelspins, ripping up the grass. We used the emergency number to complain and they did quieten down. However, the neihbours complained to reception the next morning and were told 'they're regulars, they come every year'. One night his family even set up yheir own little pub area on the reception veranda! So apparently they think more of these 'types' than those that will treat the site with respect.

As we were using the site whilst visiting family in the area, had the site been better we would have become regulars ourselves but the site are obviously perfectly happy to upset the majority to cater for the minority.

We definitely won't be going back which is a shame as the site has a lot of potential in the right hands with the beach being so close and it's location.

Reviewer: Brandy Cream 1 review from this member

We stayed here last month - my partner and 3 children and this is the first time that I have felt that I need to leave a review. The location is fantastic, right on the beach, only a short walk to Sovereign Harbour and there is an excellent bus service at the end of the road.

We do however, have a few grumbles - the pitches are very cramped and we did feel on top of each other and there was quite a lot of litter around the site and bins were over flowing at times.

There are two toilet blocks - one is basically a prefab from a festival, the other is much better, although both of them could do with a good clean.

The level of customer service received from staff wasn't brilliant - staff were either very rude and abrupt or they were standing around talking all day, didn't feel that any of them were very approachable or that a great deal of work was being done.

We wouldn't visit again - suggest some staff training in customer service takes place!
