Fantastic stay with (better than advertised) beautiful sea views in one of the apartments. Outstanding value for money. Bundles of hot water and space. Clean, spacious and functional. Would benefit from updating, but if they did refurbish I would expect the price to quadruple.

A lovely family run caravan site, small but friendly pool and park. The food was very nice and entertainment low key. The only disappointment was the noisy band that plays over the park which was a nuisance, late at night. WiFi was available from the club house but poor signal in the caravan.

Thank you for your review. It is good to know that you enjoyed your stay at Waverley Park. Internet access is free, high speed and available anywhere on the site including in the caravans. If you visit again we can show you how it works in the caravans. The 'noisy band' was probably from Cowes Yacht Haven celebrating some special...

A beautiful location run by a wonderful family and a great team of staff, all of which make you feel welcome. I highly recommend this place for families and groups of friends. A great base for visiting an interesting and stunning island and for those that love the outdoors. 😜X

Well! We could not be more delighted with your review of Waverley Park Holiday Centre. Everyone is delighted with your praise. We work our socks off and we try just as hard for the people who love us as the people who do not. Many thanks and DO COME AGAIN - if you can.

The IOW is a lovely place and a great place to visit. Waverley Park is a tranquil and idilic location, with a country feel. It is very friendly and far less commercialised than many other parks, which makes a pleasant change. Both caravans were comfortable and exceptionally clean and tidy, with all adequate necessities. The bar/pub was very comfortable and...

So glad that you enjoyed the Isle of Wight. It really is something special and thank you for your praise of Waverley Park. We are proud to be a ' hands-on family run site'. We choose not go in for comics and showgirls which the larger commercialized parks do but prefer something that any age can participate in. The children...

We booked the Osborne caravan which has 4 bedrooms, 1 double and 3 twins quite surprised how spacious they were. The toilet was a bit tight but we only used it if some one was in the shower/toilet area. It has a fully enclosed shower so might be a bit claustrophobic for some. We were based near the esplanade and...

Thank you for your informative and detailed review. Our pool is kept at a good temperature as you mentioned. We want our claim to have a heated pool to mean something and the temperature is displayed daily on the board outside. This means it is very popular especially in the heatwave that we had recently. However in the middle of...

Thanks for a super review! The power station - on what we laughingly call 'the big island' - is a reminder of why you crossed the Solent (:
