“Tribute West Life / Take That”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2013

We have been to all the Warners and Corton previously. We call this the lower end of their Hotels but it is now a firm favourite! The personal greeting when you arrive all the staff are enthusiastic and energetic. The attention to detail in the dining room by the Supervisors in very smart business suits was encouraging, even all the chairs were sprayed thoroughly after breakfast.
The idea of having your meal in the same room as the entertainment is great no rushing your dinner to get the best seats, tables are allocated by the type of chalet you have so you get what you pay for. Food is of the same standard as the Stately homes and very well presented. The entertainment team looked as if they were doing the show for the first time which I am sure was not the case.Full of fun and they looked like they were enjoying themselves. At present there is building work going on which will be finished by Easter the new Chalets on the Cliff top will be fab but in my opinion will be a bit pricy. Our weekend in a premier chalet in Feb was £100 each even with the Siberian weather it was warm and cosy and completely refurbished. Great value for money and we had such a laugh at the Game shows. Well done Corton you are moving with the times.

Room Tip: Orwell 6 is on the end and will be very nice in the summer, and next to the car park

having usually stayed at bodelwyddan castle we thught we would give corton a try as we got a great deal on the break
upon arrival to a cold and windy east coast we were warmly greeted at reception which made for a nice welcome
We were given a double room in broadway block ,A hop and skip away from all amenities,dining and entertainment
The rooms altho not being upto signature standards were clean ,comfortable and warm
food was good and varied when available
by this we mean we were on a 6.45 sitting which meant we usually had at least one course missing off the menu by the time we were ready to eat
this isnt the best idea as it cant be difficult to work out how many meals are required for the guests staying
entertainment was first class quizes ,bingo etc and the main entertainer on the week break (impresionist) was very good
the entertainment team altho just getting together tried there best and im sure over time will only get better
we went on the historic walk around corton led by mike
i say we that was 3 of us who braved the cold windy weather but this made for a pleasant stroll around the village and was all in all a nice 2hr walk
pool altho a little small was warm and very welcoming on a cold day
Yes there are some works being done at present but in 3 months who will remember this when the park is back to its best and im sure will help this resort become a very very popular place

Room Tip: maybe book a suite for a little more room

This was our first experience of a Warner holiday and on the whole it was very good. The upgraded chalet was spacious, beautifully decorated and exceptionally clean with lovely comfortable beds and modern lounge furniture and TV's, in our view well worth the extra. We were greeted by a friendly,helpful young lady who gave us all the information needed and made us feel very welcome. The food far exceeded our expectations, with a new menu every day of our 3 day break, and was beautifully presented and served by a polite and friendly waitress.
This was avfertised as a "Drinks Inclusive Break" which in the brochure was described as follows " Enjoy drinks served at your table with dinner, and from the bar, anytime from 6pm until midnight" Unfortunately the first part of this was not fulfilled as we were told to get our own drinks from the bar whilst dining which was not what was expected or advertised and detracted somewhat from the enjoyment of the meal. Also on the first night all the tables were laid with wine glasses but this was not so on subsequent nights, if you wanted a wine glass you had to ask the waiter/waitress and then take it to the bar to get wine to drink with your dinner. The bar was also not sufficiently equipped with glasses and on one evening my husband was served a Bacardi and Coke in a pint glass as that was all that was available as due to the long wait at the bar customers were ordering 2 drinks each every time they visited. If the waiter drink service is not available during the meal then firstly it should be removed from the brochure and maybe the wine could be served in bottles or carafes to take to your table from the bar before dining to ease the queuing time, quantity of glasses used and also the disturbance of going to the bar during your meal?
The entertainment team worked hard to make our break very enjoyable with quizzes, sporting competitions and singing and tried to ensure that everyone had a good time. The tribute act was ok but did not perform as many of the actual singers songs as we had expected.
This experience has not put us off trying other Warner resorts though before we make a final judgement on Warners as on the whole we had a nice weekend away.

Rooms need some money spent on them. We had a beach garden room but the shower although good in pressure overflowed all over the bathroom floor despite turning it down. Shower curtains do not meet the base of the shower.
Food still very good, and a varied choice. We were all inclusive paying for drinks up front only to be told that this starts at 6 pm and only certain beers are included. These being the cheap and gassy ones. Spirits are included. Not really what you call all inclusive. They also kept running out of glasses. More bar staff are needed as some there have a bad attitude. Went on a Michael Buble evening, the singer was really good.
We realise work has to be ongoing but it would help if they completed one area before starting another. The sea view from the conservatory consisted of diggers, mounds of earth and ongoing landscaping. Sure it will look really good when complete but somewhat spoilt our weekend away.
I think we will leave it a while but will certainly return here.

Have been here many times before but this time not so good.We knew before we went that there was some work going on to build some new chalets and some work being carried out in the main lounge.
Because of the work going on they have reduced the parking spaces so getting parked wasn't easy.
Check in was no problem as normal,we were early so got key and we sat in lounge until 3pm.
I quickly popped to the room just to switch on the heating before we could officially get in too find it had been set up as a twin room,we had booked a double.They did change it for us by the time we went to our room.The room was fine for a two night midweek break,clean and comfortable.
My fiancee and i met her parents who were already there and for the evening table her parents had arranged a party pack for the table for our engagement,the usual,champagne,balloons,chocolates and a disposal camera.
The flash on the camera did not work so was exchanged for a new one only for us to realise that after a few photos taken both the camera's were 2 months out of date.We clearly did not want to risk continuing to use them as when getting them developed probably would not have come out and we would of wasted money.
We told the restaurant manager,explaining that we were disappointed and that we could not recreate this moment which was important to us and he laughed in our faces,not impressed.
Told the general manager following day and he had a bottle of wine on table for that night as an apology.
Food was good as it always is and the entertainment was ok.
I feel that with all the things going on to improve the look and facilities of the complex the prices will increase considerably and that will be a shame because then it will not be worth it.
Going to alvaston hall in may hope its much better.

My husband and I have just returned from a weekend away from Corton with a large group of friends .We have been going every year in January for about 7/8 years.I thought you might like a feed back on our weekend ,
the food looked and tasted lovely and the accommodation was spotless .around the site was well kept and you can see its well maintained.
the staff where very welcoming .the evening entertainments was great.the improvements in and around the site was so nice as when we first went they where very old and worn out .
I usually fill out the form feedback but this year was so out standing it was important for me to let you know.
we could not fault anything so a BIG THANK YOU.

This was our third visit in four years and what a difference we found.The accomodation was of the usual high standard, clean and well maintained, the food and service were also excellent, but from then on it was all down hill.
On our arrival we found contractors working in many areas, wall papering, redesigning a part of the conservatory making it unusable, alterations near the swimming pool, tools and equipment all over this area,, and during our stay often in the lounge work was going on ,painting, wall papering, and such like, if you wanted a sea view from the conservatory, useable later in our stay, forget it,but an excellent view of mechanical diggers, ready mixed concrete lorries, and other such equipment, and no mention of this at the time of booking.
In previous years for the less mobile there were always plenty of quizzes, games with little prizes and mementos appropiate music in the lounge during the day, yes there was a quiz or two, no prizes as we saw, and definitely no music.
There were dancing classes during the day,but little did we realise, in the evening the entertainment was dancing, ballroom, sequence, line, and disco so if you did not dance,us four don't, not a lot of entertainment for us, oh yes a magician one evening, but the rest dancing, and when the entertainment team shows were announced, guess what, more dancing.
During the day a Pop Choir was formed and they had daily rehearsals, and during the last evening this choir was part of the entertainment, talk about DIY.
We had the very strong impression the entertainment team were not too sure what to do, we were often all sitting in semi-darkness whilst they seemed to be having what shall we do next
meeting, and our suspicions were strengthend when on one evening the bingo was a complete fiasco which gave a strong hint of amateurism, oh yes one lunch time following complaints from various guests to the tour operator he arranged with the management a game was put on, and believe it or not there were not enough cards for all of us to play. more, what shall we do next.
This review may seem harsh, and times are hard for the company, and economies have to be made but times are hard for us and we want value for our money, and we will be seeking value for money elswhere
