Advantages: Great Location, Free Sub Tropical Swimming Pool, Variety of activities and restaurants to suit all.
Disadvantages: Some maintenance issues with accommodation.
My husband and I have just got back from a Monday - Friday break at Center Parcs (Sherwood Forest) We opted for the comfort lodge accommodation, however was pleasantly surprised to have some "extras" that we were not expecting including hairdryer / iron / ironing board etc...
The over all cleanliness of the accommodation was good, however we did have a couple of maintainance issues as the toilet was leaking, a couple of bulbs inside the lodge blew and also the lamp outside our accomodation didn't work - however non of these things stopped us from having a great time.
We especially enjoyed the sub tropical pool which is free, especially using the outside pool and water rapids in the evening once it was dark.
We ate at Cafe Rouge, Strada and Hucks and found all three restuarants to be good value for money and thoroughly enjoyed all our meals.
I also took advantage of the Aqua Sana Spa where I had a mother to be massage, this was truly relaxing and the lady was lovely although if I am honest a little chatty, especially towards the end of the massage as she began to reel off what products she had used and how much I could purchase these for etc... I felt this could have probably waited till after the massage had finished.
We have booked to return in December with friends by which time we will also have had our first baby, one thing I did notice when walking round was that some lodges are set back and you have to walk up quite a few steps to access them, therefore I will be contacting the headoffice to ensure we don't have steps as it could make getting the pushchair in and out quite difficult.
All in all a great mini break to pick us up after Christmas!
Summary: Great mini break for my husband and I - Can't wait to return with our baby in December.
