We have been to Butlins adult music week-ends several times, but on the last couple of occasions thought it was over subscribed. This overcrowding gives a good atmosphere I suppose but makes the stage areas and bars a tad uncomfortable, unless you sit in these areas early and grab a table and chairs there are none to be had. Also... More

We chose Butlins for our first family holiday and so glad we did! Constant entertainment for the kids to tire them out. The adult shows ie singers aren't amazing but a Butlins holiday is more about the kids. Cannot fault the attractions, the fair and the swimming pool are brill. Avoid the arcades unless you're on the 2p machines then... More

The bad- the apartments exterior need some work as all the cold sea air and rain has damaged much of the wood. The arcade needs updating desperately as many of the machines are faulty or just look well used. The good- the restaurant is great. Fantastic selection of food. An open grill at night. And the staff clear the tables... More

Because my youngest was going to be 2, they wanted to charge us an extra £100 because we'd have to have an extra bedroom. The room we had, there was dust in places and the acts were exactly the same as last year and my other children were bored by it so I didn't think it was worth booking again.... More

Stayed here with my boyfriend August bank holiday and I can honestly say for our first little get away together over the Friday-Monday we were not disappointed. Although it is classed mainly for children, being 18-20 we weren't all that disappointed. There's was always plenty to do - and many Pokemon to catch (my boyfriends an addict lol! He was... More

I stayed here a few years ago in a butlins apartment and wasn't at all impressed. It was grubby everywhere with people smoking everywhere so nowhere my kids could go without getting smoke blown all over them. This time it was so much better with the main complex being all non smoking with designated smoking areas for those that feel... More
