Fantastic event. Fantastic venue. Excellent food and lots of it, with FOUR cooked meals a day. I put on 5 pounds during my stay! Cannot fault the hospitality. Really comfortable, warm and clean rooms.
The entertainment was very good but I was NOT impressed with the resident comedian who hosted the Sunday night show. I found his humour insulting to old people; getting cheap laughs from embarrassed elderly people with his cheap jibes about old age. I found his remark "I don't know why we let them live so long" particularly offensive. These people have paid good money to be entertained, not insulted. Why does this man think you have to shout at them slowly in words of one syllable? He was treating them as imbeciles. He needs to re-think his approach and inject more intelligent humour.

Room Tip: Either facing the sea OR close to the main building. If you are staying a few days, facing the sea m...

Spent 3 days for the bowls tournament, did not start great, parking is horrendous, we were in the hotel and there was not even a parking place to drop off and pick up, but once we got over that what a wonderful time we had. The hotel room was huge so was the bathroom, plenty of storage space, fridge, tea/coffee making facilities, TV and the food well no one would go hungry no matter how fussy they were. The evening shows were not your usual holiday camp shows, they were first class, amazing. We did not use the swimming pool as we did not have time. Will definitely visit again but Potters please sort out your car parking!

Room Tip: I think any room you get will be good.

Stayed for a two night break with friends. Found the quality of all of the food we were served far exceeded our expectations, as did the accommodation, staff, entertainment and facilities. All in all, our break was excellent in every respect and would highly recommend.

We both enjoyed our short stay at the beginning of January. A much needed break from the children! A nice clean resort. Food was good. The staff excellent! A big shame we couldn't stay longer. Maybe next time? Thank you

My wife and I have just returned from Potters Leisure at Hopton after five fantastic days, the food, accommodation in a bungalow plus, entertainment and the choice of sporting activities was brilliant.
All the staff at all levels were courteous, nothing was to much trouble. The whole of the complex was clean and litter free. The weather was cold, wet and very windy but that never dampened the spirit because once in the hotel you have no reason to leave until you wish to return to your bungalow
The dancing that we went for, run by Richard, Lynn and Eileen was a huge success. During our stay we met some very nice people. Hoping to return later in the year.

Room Tip: If you download a plan of the whole complex , when you book you can see where your accommodation wil...

We stayed here for a weekend pre-Christmas celebrations and what a wonderful choice.

From the moment we arrived everything was perfect. The reception staff, our accommodation, entertainment, bar staff and the food was excellent. You will never go hungry!!.

A wonderful start to Christmas!!

I took my mother to see the World Bowls Final at Potters. The whole experience was excellent. The resort was extremely busy and the staff worked tirelessly to provide top service with a smile. The food quality was excellent and I am still trying to work out how they can serve so many meals at once in a huge restaurant and offer a menu rather than ask you for your order the day before ! Very impressive and did not have the "mass cooking effect " found in other larger establishments. The entertainment was first class and the theatre company put on an amazing show and this was at the end of a build up of bowls events throughout the week !! I can only think they are all shattered now we have all gone home ! Until the next guests arrive that is ! . Well done to everyone at Potters and for those considering a visit don't forget the gym and swimming pool, both run by efficient friendly staff .

Room Tip: Didn't book the bungalows but they looked nice. We stayed in a premier room at the hotel on sit...
