We've just stayed at The Riverside Holiday Village near Wallasea Island Nr Southend. We booked in for the first night & i paid the pitch fee of £24. When I got back top the van Tony asked why it was £24 when their web site says £16. The only thing I could think of was that I had said yest to electric hook up as thought it would only be a couple of quid. We decided to stay another night so when I went back to the office to pay I asked how much the hook up was and was told............ £8 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I told the receptionist that in all my travels around the UK and abroad this was the most extortionate price for electric hookup I'd ever come across. She said "well it's our standard charge". Ok I said , then we won't have hook up tonight (we've got solar panels anyway & I'd already had an earful from Tony for paying for electric when we didn't need it!). Fine she says, but you'll have to move to a different field. Now as the huge field we were on had three vans on it (see photos) and at least 40 empty hookup points and we had everything set up I asked (very politely) would it be possible to just unhook the cable for tonight? She replied "NO and if you don't want to move then you can leave the site". Very reluctantly I paid the £8 but left a review of their customer service on UK Campsite!
