“Disappointing for Spice Girls fans”

Island Harbour Marina
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We have nine-year-old twin girls who at crazy about the Spice Girls and have watched the film several times. Hence they were beside themselves when the Island Harbour website indicated that the Union Jack bus from the film was on display. As we were having a short break on the island we added it to our "must-see" itinerary. We pulled up in the car park expecting the bus to be in a prominent position but there was no sign. We enquirer in the restaurant and was told it was up the lane and round the back of someone's house! So we trekked up the pavement devoid road with the kids, braving idiot drivers in big cars. After a few hundred yards found what we were looking for. The poor bus was dumped next to a forelorn tourer caravan in a back yard and looked like it had been dumped to rot the rest of its life away. Nothing like it is portrayed on the marina website. Our photos say it all really. Kids were really disappointed and I was left feeling misled.
