“FUN FUN FUN for all the family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

There was soooooooooooo much to do for children of ALL ages and the parents are not disappointed either. Plenty of places to eat, drink and have fun too.
I never would have believed a holiday at Butlins could be so much FUN.

“Entertainment good - food average - hygiene POOR!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

We stayed at Minehead for the 3 night New Year Break, the queues on arrival were horrendous and there was a bit of confusion amongst the staff as to where people should park etc. We had booked a 2 bedroom gold appartment for ourselves and our 2 teenage boys, which was small but clean although the window locks were broken and as we were on the second floor this could have been disastrous with younger children. The evening entertainment venues were crowded and the toilet facilities were disgraceful - youy could smell them long before you saw them! We went to Splashworld which was great but whilst waiting for the slides there was again the unmistakable smell of urine. We chose the premium dining package which included breakfast and dinner. There was plenty of choice for breakfast unfortunately it was luke warm at best. We were told the times for our evening meal had been changed on New Years Eve and New Years Day to 3pm to 6pm - not ideal for adults and when we turned up on New Years Day at 5pm there was very little left. The guy serving left me waiting 20 minutes while he went for more pork, only to come back and tell us there was none left - by that time there was nothing else left either so I forfeited dinner. Our boys used the fair and enjoyed it, they wanted to try the climbing but at 3:30 we were told they were too late and it was closing for the day! Overall I think Minehead is a bit tired and over due for an over haul, also the cleaners need to be more vigorous.

“butlins has changed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

have not been to butlins in years. recently came back from midweek break at minehead. how times have changed. parts are still untidy but these are in areas that are going to be refurbished. overall it is clean and spritely. areas that still need attention are the toilet in the bars, but this is sometimes caused by people whose own homes may be in a similar situation especially when they have had too much to drink. bar prices can still be pricey, but with the good entertainment thrown in, is worth paying the extra for.
