Our second visit to Corton, we had previously visited a year ago prior to the refurbishment work.
We were on a three night break with another couple and stayed in standard plus accommodation in the 'Boardwalk' . As mention on previous reviews some rooms and landscaping had been upgraded and refurbished since our last visit and it all looked very nice, and hopefully this will be extended to the standard rooms in due course. Having said that the room we had was clean and comfortable and adequate for a weekend break. However the bathroom is in need of upgrading and the water pressure from the shower is pathetic. Although our room was serviced to a reasonable standard our friends room was not, with obvious signs that it had not been done. Neither room was serviced on Sunday.
Enough of the whining the rest of the stay was excellent the staff throughout were friendly and polite, the food was top notch, well cooked and prepared, good choice and always plenty of it. The seating arrangements in the restaurant means you keep your table for the evening entertainment which I can see would not suit all, as some of the table locations do not give you a particularly good view of the stage. We changed our allotted table to one more suited without any trouble. Service was good and efficient with our waitress Hannah being excellent.
The entertainment was good with a comedian, 'Rat Pack' tribute and camp entertainment team. During the day a few quizzes and games were organised if you wished to participate. The site at Gunton Hall, a very short distance away has a large swimming pool which is superior than the small pool at Corton and we visited this on the Sunday as the weather was not good, we had no problem using their facilities which were very good.
Overall and very enjoyable stay at a very good price, so much so we've both booked for a visit next year, and it will be interesting to see what further refurbishment work has been done.
