There are three hotels at Butlins Bognor; the Ocean, Wave and Shoreline. We have stayed in the both the Ocean and Shoreline on a few occasions and, for our money, the Shoreline is bar far the best for us. The hotels are all clean, functional and comfortable but what sets the Shoreline apart from the rest is the integral South... More

We stayed at the shoreline . Which I understand is in the middle of being re decorated . We were on the top floor, which had by the look of it just been re painted etc. there was a few signs of recent painting eg marks on the door. But overall we were presently surprised. We had a fridge, coffee... More

Just returned from a soul weekend with friends. The hotel (after experiencing a basic accommodation facility at Skegness last year) was 5 star- really clean and the Emperor bed was so comfortable. We had room 338 (family room with separate bunkbeds and tv for kids) with sea view- room 340 would've been a state room with private balcony overlooking the... More

I need to start by saying I met my husband in 1977 whilst we were both working in Butlins Bognor. I have never had any desire to go there in my lifetime. We had a rare opportunity to take 6 of the grandchildren away at the same time, nowhere could accommodate us for the Feb half term. Someone suggested Butlins,... More

Never been to Butlins before but we were really pleasantly surprised. We took our granddaughter (age nearly 5) for a short break. Stayed in the Shoreline Hotel in a newly refurbished family room. Accommodation was excellent. Very comfy bed, good quality towels. No shaver socket in the room. Food in the hotel was very good - high quality. Special food... More

To add to the problem, the couple we came with dropped... More

This was our second Just for Tots break, our first at Xmas. In Sept '14 we stayed in a gold apartment which was adequate, but a little tired, and not luxurious at all. We also all three were very very poorly after eating in the Deck buffet for meals. However, our little one loved all the activities at the JFT... More

Rooms were spotless, cleaned everyday, bright and staff were helpful. Couldn't have asked for more! We really enjoyed our 4 day Just For Tots break and have booked to go again in April! Would recommend staying in this hotel.

We came to Butlins on our first ever visit over Christmas, to experience their winter wonderland offering. The welcome was great; friendly, helpful and professional and, phew, was there a lot to get through. Shoreline is aimed towards younger kids, so as part of our booking we were also given advance tickets to a christmas show, a panto, a kid's... More
