My wife and I are thinking of moving home to Norfolk/Suffolk to escape the bustle of Surrey. Finding the Waveney Centre online seemed a perfect base from which to explore the area and view some properties. We chose the Captain's Cabin room from the website details and found it to be superb; luxurious, with good views across the Broads. The... More

I booked a "Pod" for one night for me and my son. We arrived at 17:30 and found that reception closes at 16:30 which we thought was a bit early. However we proceeded to the bar where the very helpful staff dealt with our arrival. As for our "pod" accommodation I had the top double bed and my son slept... More

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
