The Lillies Caravan Park
Really rude customer service and as such I did not even stay here. Other reviews are less than glowing too and the site has since closed down.
It has come to my attention that The Lillies Caravan Park has since closed down and is now a housing development. Therefore there seems little point in reading my review which was rather negative based on poor customer service. For those looking for a campsite near Bognor Regis you could consider Rowan Park Caravan Club Site.
Having left Graffham campsite I wanted to try somewhere new whilst slowly making my way around the south coast. I initially decided on Slindon Camping and Caravanning Club Site but it appears nobody answers the phone on a Wednesday. In the end I ended up in Barnham, near Bognor Regis. Following the brown tourist signs indicating a campsite I found myself arriving at The Lillies Caravan Park.
The Lillies Caravan Park – Why I decided not to stay here
The reception seemed to be closed with a sign directing you to the OK Corral. This turned out to be a building close by. Entering the building I was given a cold stare by a lady who said rather rudely ‘you’ll have to wait I’m busy’. I’m guessing I caught her at a bad time but I was really taken by surprise at how rude she was. Sometimes you do question why some people work in customer facing roles when they lack basic common courtesy.
Now I could have waited but the thought of handing over any money to someone so rude just didn’t appeal to me. So I turned round and got back in the motorhome. A few minutes later as I was searching for alternative accommodation I was startled by a knock on the passenger window. It was the same rude lady indicating she was now ready for me. I bluntly replied ‘I’ve changed my mind’ and I don’t think she was left in any doubt that I was less than impressed with her level of customer service. If I ever find myself in the area again you can safely assume I will not be using The Lillies Caravan Park.
The Lillies Caravan Park – More details (If you happen to like rude people)
The site caters to caravans, motorhomes, trailer tents and tents. They welcome well behaved pets apparently. Hopefully they are more welcoming to pets than they are to humans! Pitch prices are based on 2 people and range from £11.00 to £15.00 per night. Unlike most campsites in the UK however electricity is charged extra, at £4.00 per night. Additional adults, children, dogs and awnings all attract extra charges. Showers are included in the pitch price and checkout is a rather early 11:00am.
The Lillies Caravan Park is close to Barnham which has some shops and train station. It’s a slightly run down town and I noticed a number of shops boarded up. If you happen to be in the area thankfully there are a number of campsites to choose from. Feel free to ignore my review if you like but I think you could do better than The Lillies Caravan Park.
