“Good fun”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

If you like sophisticated entertainment and luxury accommodation then Corton is not for you. Turkey and Tinsel is a knees up the old fashioned way with plenty of entertainment, food and drink with a very helpful and smiling local staff. The entertainments team give it full go and they really make the day time and especially the evening entertainment good fun.

Obviously the weather means you nip in and out to the main building block fairly swiftly but what do you expect in December on the East coast. All you need is in one building and the program of activities is full and varied. The crazy golf course is a real challenge and requires some inventive play.

Why 3 stars, well the accommodation is a bit under whelming and the bed and mattress in our chalet was well past its replacement time with a pillow to match. Without a few Xmas drinks, sleeping even for a few hours would have been tricky. The room was snug and the bathroom adequate for a short stay. Clean and tidy, the staff did their best.

We had a couple of nights stay and 3 days of fun - great start to the festivities.

Room Tip: The premium chalets on the cliff top look worth the extra and have a lounge and terrace.

I can honestly say that I have never enjoyed myself as much as I did for the New Year Break we had at Corton. Everything was just so perfect. The entertainment team excelled themselves and made our stay truly wonderful. Whilst a lot of people didn't take part in the activities, those of us who did really enjoyed ourselves and this was down to the fine planning and enthusiasm of the entertainment team who ensured we had a good time. The Pantomime they put on was the best we have ever seen, and we are not a fan of Panto's, the energy and professionalism was by far better than some West End Shows we have seen. The food was excellent and presented very well. Our accommodation was brilliant, we stayed in a Premier Suite and loved the fact we had a lounge to relax in and a separate bedroom. Every one of the staff we spoke to were really friendly and helpful. The bands we saw each evening were just brilliant and all who stayed to see them had a fantastic time and were singing and dancing along with them. We enjoyed it so much that we have booked to go back. Thank you to everyone who made this a perfect New Year for us.

Room Tip: For more space and luxury choose a Premier Suite or Premier Chalet

We had a fantastic stay,the credit must go to the very hard working entertainment team they appeared to be on duty 24/7 we stayed in one of the new cliff top lodges and can truly recommend them with two flat screen tv's a sitting area,sea views. they would be lovely for a summer break having two patio's
The food was very good with plenty of food,but I found our waitress to be only interested in the large coach parties-perhaps they tip more? some areas are inaccessible for the disabled but if you can do without going to the dance studio,i'm sure that you would still enjoy the other facilities.

Room Tip: pay the extra for a cliff top lodge.

Had a great time seeing the New Year in at Corton. Absolutely everything was geared to making the break as enjoyable as it could be. Tasty, nicely presented food and lots of it. The 5 course gala dinner was excellent. The entertainment team were all first class and so hard working and the visiting entertainment also good. Chalets have had a face lift since we were here a year ago so they are improved.

We found the staff and other guests to be pleasant and friendly. We thought Warner's had gone the extra mile to make a really great break!!!!!!!

Had a very pleasant weekend break this last weekend at Corton. Myself along with a small party had been to Corton previously in November so we knew what to expect - no frills accommodation, enthusiastic entertainment and honest food and drink.
Having said that we were all pleasantly surprised. The in-house entertainment crew worked staggeringly hard to keep us all entertained. The guys and girls really put some energy into it and are really talented. The Friday night guitar/banjo/ukulele guy, Ian Larkin?, was absolutely brilliant. The resident band were great especially the gorgeous singer and Jazz was brilliant at taking the requests until well beyond midnight.
The Abba tribute band on Saturday were awesome and the Sunday evening Boogie Night show was a toe tapping, arm waving epic with the crew giving their all once again. The food was plentiful with loads of variety and our waitress Jess was an absolute star, a lovely young lady with just the right balance of cheek and charm.
I appreciate that Corton isn't exactly the French Riviera but the staff really go the extra mile and more to make you feel welcome. Really really enjoyed it and will be back again sometime.

It was like being on holiday with an extended family. All the staff and other holiday makers were all so friendly and helpful. The recently refurbished site was excellent throughout the grounds and accommodation. The evening shows were very professorial and we were lucky enough to be able to laugh at and with the entertainment staffs pantomime. Daily activities were also available to be enjoyed. The food was very well prepared and presented, the choices meant that everybody could find something to their liking. Will be going back in 2014.

Room Tip: All the chalets are good value but for something different, although added cost, try the cliff top...

Returned yesterday from a 4 day Christmas break at Corton Coastal Village in Lowestoft. Well what can we say other than it was certainly a magical Christmas. We really, really did have one of the best Christmas’ ever. Cannot praise the entertainment team enough, they truly worked so hard and kept everyone happy and laughing. They gave us shows as professional at the west end performances, they gave us quizzes that had us in fits of laughter and got the old brain matter working, they organized games to work off some of the delicious food we ate, they gave us a “Dick Whittington” panto that made us boo and hiss like 5 year olds, taught us to dance and sing and through the whole of this busy time for them they never stopped laughing and chatting to everyone to make sure we had everything we needed. The food was excellent and so much of it there will be a lot of new year diets after staying here. The waiters and waitresses worked really hard and catered for the fussy eaters without complaint. The ladies on reception sorted out any problems that occurred and answered any questions. All in all a great 4 days and we have already booked for next year before we came home. Highly recommend a stay at this village you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: All rooms are clean, warm and comfortable just get the best you can afford.
