“Great time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

We went on a dance weekend. This was our first visit. We had a great time, the chalet was better than we expected for a Leisure Resort, I had visions of a hi de hi type resort, this is nothing like it, it's miles better. The chalet had plenty of room, well heated, good size bathroom with shower over the bath. The restuarant was excellent, both the atmosphere and food. Breakfast was the traditional with buffet, plus some additional options including fish. Lunch and dinner were 3 course meals, providing far to much food. Never made it to the midnight meal, but the queues and comments suggested it was equally as good. The entertainment in the theatre had different themes each night, all were enjoyable. All the staff we met were very friendly and helpful. All ready booked our next visit.

We've been several times to the "Big Band" weekends - excellent value, a free bar, 5-course meal, excellent entertainment, midnight snack after the main event has finished (choice of sweet & sour chicken & rice or curry last time I was there, nto just a snack but a whole meal in itself!!), nice chalet to stay in (better than some proper hotel rooms I've had).

Lots to do while you're waiting for the main entertainment - borrow any of the boardgames, have a go at curling, mini adventure golf course, badminton... all free too.

Have found the staff generally very helpful and cheerful.

Always an excellent evening.

We have had 4 Short Mat Bowls breaks with our club which has been really great from beginning too end. We found the chalet accommodation first class the food was just brilliant the entertainment was also very good. We also found the staff extremely helpful, and there is something there to suit all ages and gender. We will return!!!

Room Tip: Chalets in block L we found useful for car parking.

Another half term spent at Potters - there is always something to do for every age, from making puppets for the little ones, to comedy, music and quizzes for the oldies and sport of every kind for everybody else - from football to kurling, dancing to keepfit there is something for everybody of either sex. Of course the entertainment is first class, food excellent and drinks reasonably priced - what more could you ask for. Every where is very clean, the hotel rooms in particular are excellent with very comfortable beds and rain does not stop play. For a family this holiday cannot be beaten.

Room Tip: Hotel rooms are superior but at a cost, there is nothing wrong with the chalets though.

8 of us went to The Potters Winter Black Tie Ball. What a great time we had. 5 course meal with wine, an evening of brilliant top class entertainment, overnight accommodation in warm clean bungalow. Really friendly atmosphere. Wonderful! going back next month for the dance & fitness weekend and have been for the last 12 years

We had a wonderful time on the Christmas break at Potters. The food, entertainment and actvities were exceptionally good.
The accommodation was comfortable and clean but we would definitely go for the hotel next time rather than be in the chalet rooms.
This is the perfect break for family groups of different generations - my parents (70+), my children - 14 and 8, and us really enjoyed the whole experience.
It was a very different Chrismas break but thoroughly enjoyable and we shall definitely go next year.

Room Tip: Try to go for the most expensive that you can afford - you do pay for what you get in terms of acces...
