Isle of Wight Reports

Rookley, Isle of Wight

Review of Rookley by Andy Craggs on February 9th, 2008
Rookley is a lovely little village. My advice is not to stay at the Rookley Country Park. On the face of it this holiday village is ideal, but the reality is far from ideal. We stayed as a family in a tent in August 2007. Cattle were treated better than the compers. Lots of very disgruntled people. The indoor swimming pool and changing facilities were constantly filthy. A urinal overflowed for the full 10 days that we were there. The 2 sinks for dishwashing we completely inadequate for the 20-30 tents and all of the motor home tourers. The service in the restaurant was obismal. We waited for an hour to be served the wrong food (and we weren't the only ones that had a problem). When we complained it fell on deaf ears, and this inspired me to warn others of this ghastly sham of a camping site.
