I have holiday at Center Parcs to many times to count and have stayed at Whinfell Sherwood and Longleat with my husband and children but this time it was a girly weekend for my Mum's 60th birthday. It was a fantastic weekend and my Mum absolutely loved it. We stayed in a New Style Woodland Lodge and it was in a very good location. When we arrived the rug that was in the living area was so dirty it was more like a door mat than a rug. I rung Guest Services and asked them to come and remove it.They arrived approx half an hour later with a much cleaner looking rug. There was a few issues with housekeeping that I think need to be addressed but apart from this the lodge was lovely.
We did the moonlight spa on the Friday and is was absolutely supburd. It has to be one of the best Spa's I've ever been to.
The show on Saturday evening was just ok and although I do appreciate the effort that goes into something like that it just wasn't worth the money in my opinion and maybe Center Parcs should look at the shows Butlins put on Every night for FREE.
The toilet situation in the swimming is less than ideal and if I had my children with me I would not have been happy about them going on their own and they are mixed at the moment but I'm sure this will only be short term?
All in all a great weekend and can't wait to return as family.
