Pembrokeshire’s Bluestone National Park Resort is one of the UK’s top three best value holiday resorts – says Which?
Pembrokeshire’s Bluestone National Park Resort has been named one of the top three best value holiday resorts in the UK for the second year running by Which?, the independent consumer organisation.
Bluestone, near Narberth, employs over 800 people and has been placed third out of 18 UK resorts. It has also been recognised as one of the only three Which? Recommended Providers on the list. The resort had secured the fourth position on the list last year.
It was ranked above destinations including Center Parcs, Butlins, Pontins, and other major holiday destinations.
Bluestone ranked a full five stars for the quality of accommodation and customer service. It was also ranked highly for cleanliness, facilities, entertainment, food and drink and value for money.
The survey was based on responses from 1,000 Which? Members. They rated it on cleanliness, accommodation, facilities, customer service, entertainment, food and drink, and value for money.
Yvonne Buckingham, Director of Commercial at Bluestone, praised the team at Bluestone who helped ensure guests received the best possible service.
“This isn’t just an accolade for Bluestone, it’s one for our whole team of employees who go that extra mile to help guests, as well as working behind the scenes,” said Yvonne.
“It also demonstrates how Pembrokeshire, the national park, and our whole community is a great place for visitors to come and enjoy the wide range of attractions and venues that they visit while staying at Bluestone.”
Yvonne highlighted how the business contributes more than £1.5 million a year to the local economy, in addition to its employment and more than £1 million in visitor spend.
The business is investing £30 million to expand its facilities. This includes 80 new Platinum lodges, the recently opened Black Pool Mill heritage dining experience which has created more than 30 jobs, and a planned 11-hectare solar farm.
Claire Lewis, Head of Guest Experience at Bluestone, said: “We’re very proud to be a local business in Pembrokeshire providing important employment, using local suppliers where possible and supporting the local economy. The latest Which? Survey highlights how our team from the area provide a five star service for our guests.”
