Our stay was short and sweet as we were just passing through Bognor on a trip round the UK from NZ, and as were were without kids this won't exactly be a comprehensive review of Butlin's in general.
However what we saw of the Shoreline Hotel we liked, our room on the 4th floor was more towards the sea end of the building so had good views and it was quiet. I guess being nearer the resort end would be noisier. Our room was very clean, and we could find no fault with anything - lovely leather armchairs, king-size bed, TV, DVD, bar fridge, safe, toiletries, hairdryer, iron and ironing board. If I had to make a criticism it would be that the bed was a little too firm for my liking, but that's personal preference and somebody else might find that a bonus.
We didn't dine in the restaurant that night as we had plans elsewhere but breakfast was more than ample with heaps of choice of both hot and cold food. The noise level was very high, but only to be expected in a hotel with such a big family focus. After being a bit doubtful about the coffee machine I have to say that my cappuccino was excellent and of course it was a bottomless cup ! In fact after a breakfast as big as you want to make it, you wouldn't really need to eat again until dinnertime !
The only other comment I would like to make is how friendly and helpful all the staff were, especially the receptionists and the lovely restaurant manager, Kathryn.
