      Pontins Southport

      Just got back from spending New Year there.

      All I can say is thank **** I didn't pay full price.

      Apart from the 4 hour waste of my life queing for food on New Years Day, as well as the manager being ******, the shabbiness of the chalets, the fact it took from Friday Night until about 7pm New Years Day to fix the TV, the fact the chalet was filthy, cold, and the fact the sofa bed was rancid, it was great.

      Make sure you book now folks.

      What has that got to do with it? If it wasn't fit for people then it shouldn't be rented out. Does the refurb include sobering up the canteen manager?
      There is no p in Thomson.

      Yes they are.

      However, the first one we were given was as described above, (and had already been tarted up afaik) and the second one (which had supposedly been done up) was what prompted me to post the above.

      We actually used the double quilt for the bed settee as a cover so as we could sit on the bed settee.

      Apart from those minor problems, the queue for food on New Years Day was horrendous. There is absolutely nothing better on this earth than queuing for 4 hours when you are hungry, and you also have kids with you.

      Apart from that, the restaurant manager 'potentially appeared' to be drunk, (during the day) and he also had all of the restaurant staff (that were female) in tears. They then began to walk out.

      The tables were filthy, the queue of people were actually helping to clear the tables, as they knew it was not the normal staffs' fault.

      As for the TV there was absolutely no excuse, that should have been sorted within minutes, especially once when the new TV arrived, it had only travelled about 10 metres.

      We found out that there was a maintenance shed behind us, right next to all of the shipping containers, that waved at us, everytime we looked out of the kitchen window.

      Apart from that, it was really good.

      lol - Someone reads our Twitter posts then, or did you deduce that from my first post.

      Hope you are well btw mate.

      Greetings,

      Was going to suggest posting on that holiday review site but after a quick check looks like someone already has for the time you were there wishing you were here

      One of the best New Years ever if I am honest.

      It was actually quite good at Pontin's bar what I have described.
