I chose the Beginner's Course in Rockclimbing over two evenings. I felt two evenings separated by a week would help me decide whether or not I would like climbing.
When first entering the centre, seeing the high walls and all the young people clambering up can be a bit intimidating as a beginner at 41. However, our instructor, Sarah, made me feel relaxed and gave me confidence. The course is a great way to find out if you like it or not and I would recommend it.
Also, it's true that it does get very cold in there during the winter months!
When I Went To Calshot With My Old School It Was Amazing And I Really Want To Go Back. The Accommadation Was Good And The Food Was Really Tasty. I Loved The Ski Slope And The Absailing, I Think I Should Come More Often. Grange Junior School, Year 6

Hi, I went to Calshot with my school (Knightwood Primary School). All of year six went together. My instructors were Ant and Ste (Antony and Stewart). They were AMAZING!!!!! I really liked their life changing phrases...... I really Really REALLY enjoyed my time at Calshot....It was the best week of my life! Skiing was SOOOOOO fun because I've never done it before and I managed to go from the top (thanks to Ant and Ste). there are pictures of me on my school website! AHHHH! MASSIVE thanks to Ant and Ste for making my week so brilliant.....and everyone else who helped out. By the way I like your hot chocolates!!! GO CALSHOT!! I hope to go back again soon, even if it is just to see Ant and Ste!!

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.
