Porth Beach, Newquay

  1. We have been to this site five times in the last eighteen years, the site is in a excellent location, across the road from a beach & a pub, with a 30 min walk into Newquay itself or you can catch the bus right outside the site, if you don't want to walk. The site itself is very level with enough room for our VW camper van & awning.Now I have to say after we stopped there this year I DON'T know if we would go back again. when we turned up to our pitch there were little bits of rubbish on the pitch, so after pitching a 5 min clean was required (no major problem). The main problem was the toilets and showers, they were dirty, my wife asked me if the mens were dirty, which they were, so we called in to reception to point this out to the staff, we were told that we were the first to complain this season & were thanked for our 'feedback'Nothing was done for the rest of the time we were there, it just seems they were happy with a quick swill round, never were the toilets closed anytime so they could be properly cleaned.The problem with the pitch having little bits of rubbish on is because when someone moves from the pitch the staff just go round it with a ride on lawn mower which just chopped up any rubbishThis is not a cheap site either as it cost £33 a night for the pitch with electric.Shame really as for it's location it is really good, maybe they had a off week
  2. Spooky i saw this on the dark side a few moments back. >:D

    My mates are there now, they say it's really nice, as you said, maybe an off week.
  3. i thought their toilets had won awards for being clean

    they have always been very clean every time we have stayed there
