Booked for long weekend to celebrate wedding anniversary,what a lovely relaxing place we picked. The accommodation is well equipped,spotless and comfortable. The dressing gown and slippers a lovely touch as was the welcome pack in kitchen. The hot tub was excellent, set to good temperature. The view was a delight,very relaxing. We would definitely go back.

We stayed in marsh view spa cabin for a four night break and wished we'd booked a full week, the cabin was absolutely superb, fantastic level of finish and comfort with 180' uninterrupted views of open marsh land, which is teeming with wildlife, we would sit in the hot tub in the evenings watching all kinds of birds and ducks...

Very nice place with nice friendly staff and stunning scenery, it is remote location but has lots to offer, boating the main theme. There is a pool, jacuzzi, yurts, pods, bar, restaurant, etc we stayed in the port cabin which was very comfortable and clean, the wet room shower very nice. Food was above average but nothing really to shout...

Peaceful, with great facilities and friendly staff, a real "Break away from it all"! Great accommodation with lovely touches such as the welcome pack which included not only bread and milk but washing up liquid etc, would recommend. Exam lodge looks great

We recently stayed at the Waveney River Centre in a 'dog friendly' lodge, being fairly new to the dog owning brigade I expected the 'dog friendly' lodge to maybe be a little less plush and perhaps more dog used and maybe a little abused. But as we wanted to take our dog on her maiden lodge holiday we thought we...

Thanks for your great review - we're really pleased with all your feedback and it means a lot to our team that they get things right. Regarding the Wifi, this was probably more to do with the connection quality inside the lodge rather than the speed, I suspect. The speed is fine for browsing, emails, etc and you would only...

We stayed over a bank holiday weekend in Burgh Staithe with our family of 7 adults and three children. My wife is over 30 weeks pregnant and I hoped it would be a relaxing for her. The accommodation is modern and well kitted out situated on a piece of land near the slipway. You have water on three sides but...

Thank you for your review, which to be honest was a bit disappointing. To pick up some of your points - extra bathrobes are available for a modest charge, and the hot tubs always have to strike a balance between privacy and a great view. For this property, we decided to err on the side of privacy. I'm sorry that...

Visited here for a pump out with out boat and ended up paying the £10 overnight mooring fee. Quite worth it because the facilities are clean and newly decorated and the pub serves really nice food. Was going to leave five stars but one of the staff spoilt it as we were leaving by obstructing us from getting water easily...

Thanks for your review - your feedback is appreciated by all our team. Sorry to see that we dropped a star - if a member of staff was mooring a day boat, then that sounds like you were moored on the day boat pontoon rather than the visitor moorings? But either way, it sounds like it could have been handled...
