  • attitudes and levels of hospitality, welcome and helpfulness shown
  • location and setting
  • standard of facilities
  • price and value for money

E-12.05874
2 Aug €27.95
inc CCI discount
Popular site with German caravaners with prices to match; pleasant location on banks of Danube and very convenient 2km from A3 motorway to Austria, BUT never before have we been greeted with such uncouth and insufferable rudeness on arrival; this site should be BOYCOTTED by all who pass this way, so that the owners learn the commercial cost of treating their customers in this way; such a pity since otherwise the site is fine -4

Uhersky Brod
Near to Bojkovice village 6 kms east of Uhersky Brod
GPS: N-49.04038 E-17.79962
3 Sept ACSI Card €11
BUT so bad, refused to pay
Utterly indifferent non-welcome. Very limited camping area on very sloping ground surrounded by huts; mercenary owner now in lucrative school party trade with campsite over-run by uncontrolled screaming youngsters; no one, least of all the campsite owner, took any responsibility for maintaining order. Dreadful facilities - grubby, smelly and old-fashioned with limited hot water. 
 
** WORST CAMPSITE OF TRIP - AVOID AT ALL COSTS **
The fact that this campsite has ACSI accreditation speaks volumes about ACSI's dubious value !!

10 Sept 356Kč Utterly perfunctory and indifferent; reception locked in morning, and it took insistent phone call and long wait for woman to return for us to retrieve our card. Camping area apparently pleasant amid trees, but overwhelmed with noise from passing trucks, trains and noisy Dutch caravaners. Facilities antiquated and grubby with minimal hot water.

17 Sept 530


MOST EXPENSIVE CAMPSITE OF TRIP
Perfunctory non-welcome. Large flat open camping area in upper Labe valley above ski resort of Spindlerův Mlýn; whole atmosphere of resort and campsite pervaded by mercenary greed; Campsite operated by Krkonoše National Park who ban all camping within Park boundaries and exploit this monopoly to charge utterly exorbitant prices. Site open all-year-round with heated modern facilities for winter usage. Outrageous prices offset site's other good features and earns it the wooden spoon for rip-off -1
