I attended the track cycling stage one course and would like to thank our instructor Jamie for making it such an enjoyable experience. For all those out there who have an interest in cycling and are not sure about trying the track I can thoroughly recommend it. l left have had an extremely enjoyable experience and wanting to do more.

I recently took part in the training weekend you held with the cadets. It was a great weekend and I loved every second, I want to say a personal thanks to my cadet groups (Totton Air Cadets) instructor Adam, for putting up with us and really pushing us to the limit. I learnt alot from Adam and he is a fantastic instructor we will be back next year to win!
I am now with my school (regents Park) returning to calshot to do 3 sessions of rock climbing with our teachers. I hope to see Adam around and if not I will make sure I get to the tops no matter what.
I had a really good time at calshot Julie was really nice i loved all the activity's loved ski bob and rock climbing Wish i could come again :)

We went to the cafe at Calshot Spit for a meal at 1.35pm but they were CLOSED FOR LUNCH.
The Waiter said nothing - just pointed at the sign and his watch. Nice manners. So, we went to Lepe where we had a great meal....
The Spinnakers Bar at Calshot closes at 2pm. In order that customers have time to eat their meal without being rushed we ask for "last orders" for food by 1.30pm. We apologise if you felt that the member of staff working in the bar on the day of your visit was not well-mannered.
Spinnaker Bar Manager replies
I'm sorry your experience of our bar was unpleasant for you. As an experienced manager who has been running bars and looking after people for over 15 years it is always disapointing to hear that customer has had a bad experience. We do try our best to always give the best service possible and my staff are trained to be polite and mannered. I can only apologise if you found this not to be the case upon your visit and will make my own enquiries into this matter. I hope that this one off experience will not put you off visiting us in the future to allow us the opportunity to put this matter right, or indeed the centre itself which has so much to offer.

My son recently attended a No Limits day at Calshot with his carer as he suffers from autism. He had the most fantastic time, the staff werevery patient and encouraging and the activities were pitched at the right level. He even tried out the big swing which I would never dream he would have the cofidence to do. I think these days are great value and have already booked my son in for 5 more half days over the next few months
absoloutly amazing. i went for a school trip with my friend and it was such a laugh. all the activities were absoloutly amazing and i had such a fab time.

Having just completed Trackstart course with my 12 year old son, Louis, all as I can say is WOW!!! Both being road riders riding on a track was an unbelievable experience. I would like to thank Adam (instructor)for making the course fun and educational at the same time. We shall be back to ride the track. Once again thanks for a great morning.

I thought my week at Calshot was amazing.Thought it was a great way to meet new people and the instructors were fantastic especially Jamie, Jerry(Russell) and Terry .... really want to come back next year.The range of activities were fantastic and i found new skills which i really love and enjoy. I loved how our very own instructor was allowed to come with us to Portland and on the Rib. It made the atmosphere so much better. The house staff were amazing and sorted out any problems we had they were really good with us kids and were a lot of fun (Ant Julie and Mariusz)i didn't like how our TVs kept turning off at a set time i would have preferred it to go off when the film finished .. not in the middle of the film. The food was mainly chips, now i hate them because i had so many. I would have preferred a better range of sides to go with the meals but the meals were very good non-the less. Throughout my week i enjoyed every day more and more and really thought it was a dream .. so many sports and such a range to do it was absolutely fantastic and it was the best experience of my life, so far!!!

I went to calshot in 2010 with oak lodge school and it was a magnificent expierience. It had loads of fun based activities that were challenging plus great accomodation. I especially enjoyed hanging out socialy with my school mates outside of school which is something I don't do very much. My instructer's name was Sarah and throughout the week she helped me cope with activities that were extremely difficult. It was a fun filled expierience and hopefully I'll be going back again this year. You'll love it.
