We have just got back from a great weekend celebrating my daughters 50th. First visit to the site not sure how it would be, it was fantastic, had a 6 birth lodge every thing you wanted was there, spotless and first class. On site pub with great food.

We stayed in 3 pods (3 mature couples). Hired a boat for the day. Ate in restaurant 5 times and all 6 plates cleared every meal. All staff very helpful on site. Overall we had a good time. Would definitely recommend.

Just returned from a fantastic weekend break 30/31 st Oct,to celebrate my wife's birthday. Stayed in the Langley Lodge with hot tub,which was great. Hot tub was in a nice secluded area and we enjoyed using it. The lodge itself was spotlessly clean and the welcome pack of milk/bread/marmalade etc was a great touch. We had two evening meals in...

Just returned from our fifth visit to Waveney River Centre. Fantastic location overlooking the marina, River Waveney and surrounding marshes. You can sit for hours just watching the river boats sailing by! Very quiet with no passing road traffic but that's because this park is located at the end of a very narrow, 4 mile stretch of country lane! Towing... More

We stayed in the hotel for the weekend. The room was lovely and the walk in shower fantastic. The location was nice with lots of walks or boat trips. Only improvements - fix the locker keys in the swimming pool as only a few had wrist bands left. Mugs should also be provided in the rooms for the hot chocolate.... More

Three of us stayed in a lodge for a family weekend break in October. The lodge we stayed in was very nice, finished to a high standard and had been left spotlessly clean.

Very friendly staff, cabin was cleaned to a high standard and very well equipped. Hot tub was checked every day. Very relaxing and peaceful stay. The only negative was the narrow road that you had to drive down to get there, car was a must. We would go back again.
