My daughter and I arrived on Sunday afternoon having booked a twin room. Reception was closed and when we found the only entrance - the bar- we were greeted with a shout "We are closed" Eventually the harbour master came to show us to our room. To say we were disappointed was an understatement. The room was very small and... More

I too was disappointed when I read this review. The customer selected our least expensive room which, whilst furnished to the same high standard as all our rooms, is indeed slightly smaller and does not have the best view. This is why it's less expensive, and it's quite a popular room for short stays of 1 or 2 nights. We... More

Stayed in one of the pods which was amazingly warm for this time of year, pleasant surprise to be so warm. Used the pool once, sadly would have liked to use more but often it sat empty but we could not use as it was timetabled as members only. Friendly, modern pub/restaurant which served good food. Showers and toilets were... More

My husband and I have just returned home after spending a relaxing mid week break at the Waveney River Centre with our toddler. We stayed in the Lound Log Cabin. It was spacious, clean and warm. Our cabin came with a hot tub, which overlooked the broads, where lots of different type of birds were flying over / nesting, and... More

We had two rooms in this newly refurbished hotel. Myself and husband had the 'ships library' room and our daughters had the 'engine room' opposite. Nicely decorated and not overly themed. The bathrooms were nice and very clean. It was very quiet over the Christmas holidays but in the summer I imagine it's very busy as there's also lodges, pods... More

We stayed for 5 days over the New Year, on a caravan touring pitch. We had a fantastic time, and really enjoyed our stay! It was fantastic value, and I'd definitely come back again! The only downside would be that the lovely shower/toilet facilities and swimming pool needed to be cleaned much more! That really was the only downside though... More

Having stayed in one of their Eco pods during the summer which we loved we thought we'd upgrade and try a lodge during the cold winter. Totally brilliant, don't be put off by the fact that the river centre is just that - by the river - the lodge, one of their new properties, was warm, dry, in fact very... More

Stay at Waveney river centre last week. Arrived on Sunday to find reception closed of which we wasn't told. Finally found a number to call and was shown to our pitch. Avoid the heron pitches and go for the kingfisher. Went to use the onsite pool and was told by 1 member of staff it would be a £5 deposit.... More

Thanks for visiting and writing a review Mark, and I'm glad to know that you'll be visiting us again in the summer. Please can I ask you to check both your booking confirmation email and your pre-arrival email, both of which should show the Reception opening hours and give the out of hours phone number. I can see this information... More
