Best resort ever

Arrival was smooth, rooms ready on time. Clean and comfortable bungalow. The food and drink is exceptional. Even though it is all inclusive you don't see people drunk. Lots and lots of included activities, the entertainment team belong in the west end! Mark Brewer greets guests and takes time to make everyone included. This is our second visit and we are already booking the next.

Potters - simply the best!

There's a reason we keep returning to Potters (5 Lakes and Hopton) and that's because of the outstanding quality. Nothing is too much trouble for staff, food is good - something for everyone, entertainment is as good as any West End Show or cabaret club. A different show every night and our last trip two new shows which were excellent. Plenty to do throughout the day and evening and top brand drinks included. Generally over 50s age range, which suits us. Can't wait for our next visit - thank you Potters!
