The warmest welcome awaits you at Southsea Leisure Park. This family owned Holiday Park is ideally situated by the Solent, adjacent to the beach and with breathtaking views over to the Isle of Wight.

There can be few locations in the country that rival the South Coast for its beautiful countryside, for the wealth of heritage, places of interest and variety of leisure activities.

With four miles of beaches for bathing, fishing and sailing - or simply lazing about in the sun - Southsea has so much to offer. And nearby Hayling Island, easily accessible via the local passenger ferry, offers further sandy beaches.

Just got back from this run down site. The caravan we stayed in had covers on the seats to cover up the stained and dirty covers. The shower door seal did not work resulting in the bathroom being like a paddling pool when we had a shower. There was no mop to mop up the water. The bedroom blind had black mould on it. The kitchen window blew in a gale. The staff were not really helpful and not being able to go in till 4pm is rediculous as it is most of your first day gone. Would def not stay here again.

Just got back from a 2 night stay from this 'holiday' park. We stayed in a static caravan and can only describe the site as an estate. It was so run down everything felt dirty. On arrival we were told to pick up the keys from the bar area. When we started making our way over, we overheard another customer say she had found a hair in the fridge and caravan didn't look like it had been cleaned at all.

She was not wrong. We had 'upgraded' and booked with holidays in the sun. The caravan had bits all over the carpet and all surfaces were dirty. We found dirty cutlery (food still nicely caked on) and my daughter found a couple of dusty magazines with an easter egg under her bed! The food can only be described as 'school dinners'. 2x (pre-frozen) burgers and chips, mac and cheese, 1x wine, 1x beer and a kids coke was £25 and yes, it was as nice as their caravans! When checking out we weren't even asked if we had a nice stay (I think this may be because of the response they've had from previous customers) Strongly advise you look elsewhere as you will be disappointed.

By far the worst site we have ever booked to stay on and the most expensive, we booked it because of its proximity to the ferry. On arrival we were surprised at how run down the site was, we had to ask someone to move off our pitch before we could get on it and the toilet blocks were unbelievable, no locks on the outside doors, even though you were issued with a swipe card, and dirty.

The bins were overflowing. There was a path about 12 foot higher than the pitches and we were warned by a permanent resident about the people who walked along it.

The permanent resident also told us that not only did the brochure tell lies, this we agree with, but the staff did too - not a very good recommendation. We left after about four hours and were told by reception that they do not give refunds! Our recommendation - avoid at all cost!

Expensive for poor facilities. Nearly £300 for three adults including two over 50yrs and one of 87yrs plus three small dogs. Everything is charged as extra, including hairdryer socket in very dated toilet block. The hand dryer didnt work for the whole week. The site looks run down and tatty. Early morning traffic, when season residents went to work. If you want a site for a one night stopover, its passable, but it could do with a lot of t.l.c to make it a nice site to stop on for a week or more. Pity, because the location is good. Didnt see anything of the staff, so can't comment on them.

We have used this site twice now for breaking our journey from the North East before taking cross channel ferries to France.
The site is well maintained, with lots of facilities and activities.
Handy for Portsmouth and excellent shopping, entertainment and tourist attractions.
Don't just use this site for overnights before crossing - spend a few days!
