Lovley setting,cabin clean and tidy. Very friendly and helpful staff. Pool and clubhouse good for families. We walked a lot with our dog, over the fields and dow to the basin. Lots of things to do and see around the area. Definately a place forgetting away from it all! Would definately return.

We are 2 adults and just spent 2 nights glamping in a Pod, it was comfy and warm and we enjoyed the simplicity. There were some very noisy building work going on, it would have been nice to have been warned about it. We swam in the pool, very nice. Had four meals in the Waveney Inn and enjoyed all... More

Thanks for your great feedback Jan & Gary, we're glad you had a great time in the Escape Pod, and on Betsie Jane - it's a great experience isn't it! I'm sorry that nobody let you know about the noise from the building work, I'm guessing that this was the road being resurfaced and the builders didn't realise anyone was... More

Stayed in Port Cabin for one night. Absolutely fabulous. Room was spacious, spotless, and beautifully decorated. All furniture and fittings were quality. Bathroom was huge and extremely well fitted out. Especially loved the shower. Food and drink in adjoining Inn excellent. Wide ranging menu. Can especially recommend the sharing boards. Would not hesitate to return.

Thanks for your review Alan, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I'm sorry that the second day breakfast wasn't up to the same standard as the first, we've taken this up with the kitchen team to find out what went wrong. And we take your point on board about better information on arrival at very busy times -... More

We stayed in the hotel on site, stayed in the captains port room. It was a lovely bright room, very clean and modern. The bed was huge and very comfortable. Big wet room with a lovely shower. Would definitely stay again. Good in the pub was really good with a good choice.

Spent 5 days in Lodden Lodge with the grandchildren and had a great time. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the children's playground had them entertained for hours and the swimming pool was great, although the changing facilities need improvement. The pub food exceeded expectations. We had a problem with the lodge which was sorted and we received a... More

We have just come back from a week at the Waveney River Centre. The accommodation was clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly, polite and helpful. The meals in the bar were tasty and value for money. It was also nice to see some local ales being sold. We came away for some piece and quiet and was not... More

We paid quite a lot of money per night for what we recieved. I have spent half that amount and had a nicer room. It wasn't cleaned between nights and the coffee, sugar, milk etc wasn't filled up. Bed wasn't even made! Breakfast was okay one day and horrid another. Would not return at all. Plenty of nicer places out... More

We were really, really disappointed to see your review Kimberley & Darren. Clearly there's been some communication breakdown, as we always freshen rooms each day and make the beds. Did you hang the 'please make up my room' sign outside the door? We ask that customers do this, as we have had some embarrassing moments in the past and there... More
