“Simply the Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

I've been going to Potters every year for past 27 years,sometimes 3 or 4 times a year and I can honestly say I am never disappointed with my whole holiday experience there.This visit I took some friends to celebrate my 40th birthday,some had never been before and they were amazed by everything.The main thing they said was how friendly and relaxed it was and how wonderful the accommodation,food and entertainment was.The Potters Theatre company shows are excellent and lots of activities to do during the day it's difficult to fit everything in.Food is wonderful with plenty to choices.As it was my birthday the staff really made me feel special and it was a fantastic break with everything I could wish for and more,including a chocolate fountain on Saturday night!

Absolutely love going to Potters. From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave it is great fun. The chalets are very well presented, warm comfortable and spotlessly clean. The food is excellent with loads of choice and always served with smile from the host of table staff. The daytime entertainment is very varied presented by a great team - from sports to dancing workshops and loads of quizzes which are always fun. The evening entertainment is second to none. The infamous and inimitable Mark Brewer provides the comedy with his crew and what a laugh everyone has - usually hilarious. Later the Potters Theatre Company present their shows and what a truly talented bunch they are. This weekend was Made in Britain with song and dance throughout the decades and on Saturday the best show I have ever seen outside the West End. It was "Showstoppers" and it was magnificent. The singing, dancing, staging - everything was perfect. The shows are changing in the coming weeks but I am sure no-one will be disappointed. After the show there is more on stage entertainment and then it moves to the Terrace bar where there is usually a singer with the live band and to cap it all - a Midnight feast of either curry or chilli etc. Great value for money and like most people, once you go there , you want to keep returning. ( By the way - it doesn't look dated - they are decorating and remodelling all the time)

Room Tip: You can stay in the hotel rooms and then you don't have to even go outside for the whole stay bu...

My husband and I went to Potters and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. From speaking to Scott in Group Bookings, who was just divine, helpful, caring and totally professional without being condescending. Our accommodation was lovely just a little tired but was totally suitable for us. The restaurant was very clean and our waitress 'Vicky' was simply lovely, helpful and we have never met anyone who took such an interest in all of her guests and remembered from the off what everybodies preferences were. The food was of a fairly high standard with plenty of choice, Dave and Jeanette who organised the bowls although under a lot of pressure with the organisation of some many games remained smiley and helpful.

Room Tip: Although we didn't get to see the hotel rooms the bungalows were away from the main entertainmen...

if you want fun/active and brilliant entertainment this is the place to go......the shows in the evening are fantastic, with amazing singers and dancers not to mention the costumes. the quizzes in the bar areas are fun and Mark Brewer is the funniest thing on two legs....he is Potters.

Room Tip: best to stay in hotel and a room which have been refurbished to a more modern standard

Went for a theatre company weekend with my husband & 8 friends staying in the hotel. All the staff from the moment we were greeted as we arrived until we left were friendly & helpful. The hotel rooms are large and have all you would expect from a 5* hotel. Food in the restaurant excellant. How they cater to such a standard for mass catering , I do not know. So many sports & activities we wanted to fit in that we ran out of time. Then the entertainment top notch. The Sunday night show would not be out of place in the West End. Virtually everthing included in the price, just 10 pin bowling (at a very resonable price) and The shots for clay pigeon shotting we found had to be payed for, thus making it much cheaper than Centre Parks if you want to take part in lots of things.

Room Tip: Even if you cannot go in the hotel it's worth paying the little bit extra to go in a bungalow pl...

We have been visiting Potters for several years and can honestly say we have NEVER had a single cause of complaint. From the moment we get out of the car, we feel like we have come home. All our worries disappear and we are instantly relaxed and enjoying our stay. The hote rooms are not only huge, but extremely comfortable. The food is superb and plentiful, with a midnight feast thrown in for anyone that thinks they have any room left! The facilities and daytime entertainment keep you amused and occupied every minute of the day. The evening entertainment and shows are as good as any West End show. But above all, we cannot praise the staff enough. They are a credit to any business and would go to the ends of the earth to make you feel at home and enjoy your stay to the full. We will be going back to Potters again and again.

Room Tip: Well worth the upgrade to the Hotel.

Yet another absolutely brilliant weekend at at our favourite resort. Nowhere else matches up and absolutely everyone we spoke to agreed. Staff brilliant and well trained in customer satisfaction. What a wonderful place to come for a break, sign in and dont return to the car park until you are going home. Lovely comfortable ,clean beds and fluffy towels and lots of hot water when you want it. Food superb and lots of,if you cant find something you like you must be hard to please. Shows comparable with London but without the prices or the problem getting there and back. Hope the next Theatre Company are as good as the one now going. Mark Brewer is a little loud but soooo funny, if he insulted me I would not be offended . Cant wait to go again. Thank you all. Also found the accomodation a bit dark ,if you want to read!
