“Short December Break”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

For a short break Corton is ok, but our room was small, the room was clean and the bed huge, we were on the Orwell row.

This was the first time we had stayed at a Warners Hotel and it was not as we expected.

You have to arrive early to get a good table for meals and entertainment, shame we didn't know that before hand. We were shown to a table and this was ours all our stay, unfortunately we had a table with an obstruction, so we all had to squash together on one side of the table to see the entertainment! The only other table available was at the very back of the room and not being tall we would have seen nothing.

The food was adequate, but not of the high standard we had expected and I didn't expect to queue for my breakfast and evening main meal, there was a limited menu choice served at the table and if there was something on that I liked I opted for service, which was good and timed to be served close to when the others got back from the self-service, which was nice.

We had a power cut just in our room! Lucky us, first thing in the morning when we got up, so had to get dressed and go to reception to report this, we were told maintenance would be over 9am, so we waited for the breakfast room to open as the heating was also electric in the room. It was a shame no one offered us a cup of tea or a complementary bottle of wine with dinner for our inconvenience. Small gestures go a long way.

It was lovely weather for December and the sun rise was amazing, the outside seating was very nice, not that it was warm enough to sit out, but it looked lovely.

The pool looked good too.

Well situated for visiting the area.

A lovely location, right on the cliff with sea views. Staff and accommodation very nice. One huge draw back which was voiced by many. ...the access(steps ) to the direct beach from the venue had been closed, due to being unsafe, so a mile + car drive to the beach. Overall it is a lovely relaxing break.

Thanks for your review.

It is so pleasing that guests are enjoying the ambience at Corton.

Unfortunately due to cliff erosion the steps to the beach have been closed for safety reasons , hopefully in March they will reopen and guests will once again be able to enjoy the beach walks.

I make no secret this is my favourite Warners as it is so friendly and the food is out of this world. I took a group of 100+ and we have re-booked for next year already. There have been a lot of improvements since last year. The main dining/entertainment hall has been decorated and has new furniture. I like that the dining room becomes the ballroom therefore your seat is always there. On saying that get there by one to book your table as some of them are obstructed by posts but there are other seating areas for after dinner.
There is now an undercover sports area for Archery Shooting etc which pleased the men in our group. There is a lovely lounge to relax in that overlooks sea however it is no use if you cannot manage stairs. I really feel a chair lift should be installed.
As a disabled person myself I do notice these things. Please next year no Brett Kite(magician comedian) he is ok the first time you see him but we are up to about the 10th. Out of 100 people I only had a couple of complaints regarding rooms and seating but the helpful team soon sorted them and everybody was happy. Keep up good work team Corton and thankyou Chris in office and dining manager for helping me plan our stay. This was a drinks inclusive break and I thought it would be all cheap makes but I am pleased to say I was wrong Corvoissier Brandy etc.

Room Tip: A lot of the rooms are 1st floor be sure to mention if you cant manage stairs. If you can afford to...

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.
