I had a break booked for the last week of January 2021 at Elveden but had to cancel it due to Lockdown 3. I contacted Center Parcs via Twitter and within about 60 minutes, Karen had cancelled my booking and moved an existing goodwill discount I had on my booking to another break later in the year at Woburn. The refund for my cancelled break arrived on my credit card within 48 hours. I then tried to look for another date but options are limited as we need a dog friendly lodge. I managed to find one for March 2021 so contacted them via Twitter again. Bessma responded and promptly (within 15 minutes) applied the £100 discount to the new booking. Seeing as Center Parcs must be very busy at this time, I was very impressed by the speediness of these responses so felt it right to leave a positive review. Fingers crossed we will be back to Elveden in March.

We booked with less than 24hr notice, after our Lapland break was cancelled. The lodge was clean and spacious with everything you would need for a short 3 night break. We came from Kesgrave so the journey was perfect, especially when travelling with two small boys. We were able to book swimming pool sessions with ease, with lots of times available. This I think was brilliant; the changing rooms were not filled with people. It felt very well controlled, and the teams were cleaning all the time. With sanitizer available every few metres throughout the park. There were still lots of activities available. The kids participated in mini crossbows which they loved. And mini off-roaders. With all the rain before we arrived this provided a super muddy track, which made it even more fun for the boys. We are out three times, and each time the tables were spaced apart, and the team were so nice. They were very attentive, and at the pancake house they had the order/pay by App service. The Light show which replaced the fireworks, was a highlight! A wooded walk where lights and music come together! We must of lapped it 5 times! We will definitely be coming back! Thank you for a great break! Emma and the boys xx

We had an amazing time. It’s so relaxing and feels like home. We love the familiarity of CP and my son is autistic and lives the pool. We managed to book all the restaurants and swimming slots we wanted. We had a great family game of interactive squash. My children aged 7 and 9 loved it and my hubby and I had great fun too. The light trail and the way the park is decorated is amazing and leaves you feeling very festive. The parks are well run and so quiet and relaxing.

We visited as we always do for our winter wonderland mid week break. i had some reservations about if it would lose some of its magic because of social distancing and covid however it was just as magical if not more magical than before. The light and laser trail was beautiful, even with the changes to santa my daughter still loved every minute. we managed to book everything we wished and every activity was wonderful. The staff were as friendly and helpful as always. The restaurants were book only but we managed to book on the day for every night and the food and service was great. We got the swimming slots we wished for and much preferred the lower capacity in the pool we also treated ourselves to a cabana which i totally recommend. My only slightly negative point was we had a dog friendly lodge with a jacuzzi bath and unfortunately the bubbles didn’t work properly it kept turning off we did report this but no one got back to us so i do appreciate the message may have got lost as i understand staff must be very busy.

Fabulous time with family but didn't enjoy the sub tropical restrictions as only managed to book two slots in the week.Felt it was not value for money as it is one of the main reasons we chose centreparcs as one of our holidays.
