Weymouth, Dorset

Enquire Now You enquired

Waterside is a Weymouth's original independent five-star holiday park right on the beach at Bowleaze Cove, along one of Dorset’s most stunning stretches of coastline. We are just a short distance from the centre of Weymouth with its pretty harbour, beautiful beach and famous Georgian seafront.

We think Waterside is simply the best holiday park in the country. Our caravans are no more than two years old and every one is centrally heated, double glazed, features 2 toilets and comes with a minimum 32" flat screen TV and DVD player. Wifi is available in every caravan.

On park we have a fantastic leisure complex with indoor and outdoor pools, sauna, steam room and a state of the art gym. We also have a beautiful Spa. New for 2013, the Waterside Sports Bar is the place to watch live sport while Boomer's Indoor Play Area will keep the kids amused for hours on end. The Waterside Venue is the home of live children's and family entertainment every night of the season whilst the Waterside Restaurant, Take-Away or Diner and Pizzeria are all options for when you don't feel like cooking.

Waterside is the perfect choice for your family holiday or short break. We also sell a range of new and pre-owned caravan holiday homes.

MY REVIEW ABOUT MY EXPERIENCE AT WEYMOUTH WATERSIDE! . . .


1. SECURITY GUARD BEING AGGRESSIVE TOWARDS CUSTOMERS AND BEING
KICKED OUT OF MY CARAVAN WHILST TRYING TO HAVE A CAN
OF COKE IN THE MORNING -_________- ...

There I was relaxing having a can of coca cola until the secuirty guard turned
up.There is only 1 pacific security guard that I am talking about. The other security
guards are really helpful and friendly and make conversation with you to make you
feel welcome during your stay. The guard that I am talking about is fairly tall,very dark
black hair, he calls himself the SECURITY GUARD WHO IS ALSO A CLEANER.
He CLEANS THE CARAVANS , likes to boast about money and comes across as a
very sarky bloke who is not helpful at all. He likes to befriend familys and then when it
suits him he will chuck you out of your caravan for no valid reason at all with no proof.
This security guard likes to tell people what to do and make them feel very
uncomfortable. He was talking to me and my family all week and then the one
morning came to my caravan demanding that we leave due to complaints. We asked
the guard why he wanting us to leave he stated it was because of language. There
was no proof of language and I believe that this was just a guard being a BULLY .
I heard that this week 4 other people left being accused of things they didnt do like us.
This security guard came demanding us to leave with attitude and no warning for us
to leave. I think when someone is being accused of something there should be a
warning first hand with the proof but no the guard just chucked us out. The guard had
attitude and was very rude as he said " OH CAN I HAVE A WORD " in a very rude
manner.
He didnt speak in a very good manner at all he also said very aggresively " IF YOU
DONT LEAVE WE WILL MAKE YOU LEAVE .The guard is known to kick others out and
this is bullying as he smiles when he does this , he is not understanding and should
not be in this job. The guy may have a security word written across his chest on his
top but he doesnt know how to be one as there are many ways of going about things
instead of bullying and threatening. We did not do anything we was accused of.
He also said " IT WAS MY CHOICE TO KICK YOU OUT " .


2. CASE OF BAD MANAGEMENT ...

The manager was not helpful at all we went to see him to see what we had done
wrong and he said " IT IS NOT UP FOR DISCUSSION " . This seemed to me that not
even the manager could think of anything we did wrong so this obviously proved my
point that we did not do anything at all. The management say they are a friendly
team but this is not the case when you kick someone out you have to give a valid
reason this was not the case as the manager was not giving us any answers and he
just walked of from us which is unprofessional. The manager was not giving us any
reason to why we had to leave the caravan he was just trying to change the subject
by walking away constantly. It seemed to me that the management are trying to get
rid of their old caravan landlords and try and get new ones in by kicking people out
as we rented a week with a private landlord who pays ground rent to the holiday park
so we did not rent of the park itself. I also told the management my phone was
missing there was no help in this.


3 . STAFF NOT CARING ABOUT THE DISABLED ...

When we told the security guard that morning that I had my mother with me who was
disabled as she had a crutch to help her get around he still kept ranting on how we
had to leave. At this point my mother was standing up in stress from him still having
a go so the least he could of done was ask her to sit down and speak to her in a
positive calm tone but instead he just kept saying " YOU WILL BE LEAVING OR WE
WILL MAKE YOU LEAVE " saying this whilist having a smile on his face.


4. EXPENSIVE PRICES...

The prices are dreadful they want at least £3 for a bag of chips and if you decide to
have chips everyday if thats your plan it is very dear so that would take some of your
money by doing so. They want £3.50 for a pint by the time you buy a few you are
skint and then have nothing left to go out the following night.

5. THINGS BEING MOVED IN MY CARAVAN WITHOUT PERMISSION...

When you are in the caravan you may want to tidy up yes?
Well everytime before I went out I would always make sure the caravan was tidy then
when I would come back the tables and bedding would be moved and my clothing
would be moved too. I believe this was the SECURITY GUARD I HAVE BEEN
MENTIONING because he is a cleaner of the caravans too. I found it mad too how
my mobile went missing ? mmmmm ? . Plus my laptop was moved from the bedroom
to the living room without my permission.

6. NO PROOF OF CLAIMS OF THINGS WE APPARENTLY DID WRONG BUT DID NOT
DO ( NO EVIDENCE )...

We did not do anything wrong the security guard was a bully he kicked a few people
out that week for no reason with no proofs how he can do this to familys i dont know.
You should give this place a miss you could be in your caravan one minute drinking
your can of coke the next minute you and your can be out of there!.


7. BINS WAKING YOU UP AT 8AM ( APPROXIMATELY ) IN MORNING ..

If your planning a lie in dont come here if you have come here for a break from work
you best drive home now and go back to work as bin drivers will be certain to wake
you up. IT IS NOT the bin drivers fault though as the holiday resort pays the bin
drivers to take the rubbish . It is the companys fault as they could easily pay to get the
rubbish took in the afternoon.

8. ENTERTAINMENT BEING RUBBISH...

The entertainment is nothing to be proud of you do get the odd good one once a
week but that is it. There was this one act there who was very racist and this should
not be allowed he was saying racist things and rude things when there were children
present in the room.

A HOLIDAY SHOULD BE A GOOD TIME NOT A DISTRAUGHT ONE :) DONT TAKE THE CHANCE BOOK SOMEWHERE ELSE ... I SURE WILL :)
