Great holiday, stayed in one of the Exclusive Games Lodges (Number 96) which had it's own hot tub, sauna and steam room. The accomodation was very spacious, each bedroom had an en suite and the kids loved the games room.
The maids called each day and even did the washing up, towels and bedding was also changed so we really didn't have to do much other than enjoy the holiday.
Good points included the incredibly friendly staff, especially those at the guest services desk and the arrivals lodge. Nothing was too much trouble, they must be well looked after (or well paid..) by Center Parcs as the type of friendliness you get is quite unusual these days.
Activities we did were the treetop adventure and zip wire over the lake (cared for and looked after by the incredibly busy bet incredibly friendly and professional Kirsty) and the Falconery experience for the kids - good but take a coat with you if you do it as it's in a 'hollow' in the forest and the sun does not get to it.
Dining - well the Pancake place was our favourite but get there early as it's always busy.
Bad points - if you walk, especially with a buggy or pram, you have to be prepared to dice with death with the cyclists (and there are lots of them..) as this is a real problem that somehow needs to be addressed - it's really not safe in my opinion. Also, on the same kind of subject there is quite a lot of traffic passing where we were staying, delivery vehicles, CP's own maintenance crews and of course the people who can have their car next to their accomodation - there is a 10mph speed limit on site but I have to say this also needs addressing as you have to be very careful to get out of the way quickly as people drive way too fast on site.
These two things (especially the mad cyclists) were much more noticeable this year than the last time we stayed which was two years ago.
If you can stretch to one of the Exclusive Games Lodges (or one of the new treehouses being built as we stayed) and can avoid the bikes and traffic then this could well be the only place you need to go.
