Tired.

Great Yarmouth Racecourse Club Campsite
Second time at this site. Toilets and showers immaculate. The campsite itself is very uneven and bare in places.So uneven in places the wife fell and needed trip to A&E. Suspected cracked rib. Can't work out why they keep going round on the mower..and no shop. C/Club seem to stick to this 1.00pm arrival time even when the site is only 20% occupied. Bit too regimental. All in all not bad but afraid won't be making the long trip again.

Good BUT. . .

Great Yarmouth Racecourse Club Campsite

Customer service is poor: I booked 3 nights which required full payment which surprised me as I thought I expected to pay a deposit but whatever. Arrived on the afternoon of the first night to be criticised that I’m late – I was expected the day before, that they stayed late waiting and criticised further that I hadn’t left my phone number so they could call me.

Not put off by this charm(less) offensive. I said Im sure I’ve the correct date – seems I was wrong and Id booked according to their online calendar and got the wrong day.

Accepting it was my error I said “OK, but surely they can put right the error”. After all the site is less than ½ full so they haven’t lost any business. The lady attempted this on the computer but was rejected. When she tried to alter the dates she said I need to pay a further £40!

Absolutey NO WAY! Ive paid £60 for 3 nights that’s tuned to 2 nights, now you want me to pay £40 for another??? Her colleague then suggested instead just satay the 2 remaining nights and then add 1 more separately for £19.90

She then said jokingly “I bet you wont come and stay again will you?”

Her attitude wasn’t encouraging so said I‘ll decide later.

The club or the site manager could have made a choice to say stay for the 3rd night at no extra fee. I wasn’t there on night 1 so I haven’t used any water/electricity, haven’t cost them anything in site costs, wages or management fees. Haven’t lost business by turning another customer away.

Instead try to rip me off with a double charge. I travel around a lot and post recommendations & opinions on the many motorhome groups I’m on. The C&MhC & their site staff have not done themselves any favours.

Two night stopover.

Great Yarmouth Racecourse Club Campsite
Nice site within walking distance of beach and River Bure Park. Immaculate and plentiful facilities. The surface is rather uneven, so take a torch as most of the bollards are unlit and it is almost a dark-skies area! When they are watering the race-course the machine is quite nosy- tractor engine/pump running and the giant hose-reel is like a power hammer, however it’s probably a fairly infrequent process, we were unlucky.

Great Yarmouth Racecourse Club Campsite
Perfect location for the races, beach, and town. There’s a bus or land train stop close by for easy access into the town. Peaceful, even on the morning before the races. Plenty of toilets and showers, nice flat pitch, and a friendly welcome and check-in; we really enjoyed our stay; thank you!

What has happened to this site?

Great Yarmouth Racecourse Club Campsite
We have brought our children and then grandchildren to this site for many years and always loved it. This year,in August, the site has lots of empty pitches and very few children for our grandchildren to play with. We thought this strange but perhaps due to cost of living issues. We spent a lot of time off site so didn't realise the actual problem for a few days, when we were subjected to the most horrendous noise untill 11.30 pm. The racecourse is watered at least once a day, not by towing a sprinkler round the course but by parking a running tractor, which then tows the sprinkler. The towing device makes a noise similar to hammering an anvil at 1 second intervals. Impossible to even think let alone sleep. Resigned to having to put up with the noise, which is nothing to do with the site wardens We thought we would go out as much as possible. However, when using the male toilet block the next morning I found someone had voided their bowels on the floor of the toilet cubicle. We will not be visiting again, though the wardens are lovely. The site is unusable.
