We visit Butlins at Skegness every January for the Brass Band Festival weekend. We stay in standard accommodation and book premium dining. The rooms are warm and clean with basic but comfortable facilities. They are located near to the main social and entertainment facilities which means that they are very convenient but that it can be a bit noisy at... More

Water park was amazing! Other than that the day pass we bought to go to the Butlins resort wasn't worth it. The day tickets didn't get you much. You could go on a few rides that were free with the pass but the que for those rides would have took up the whole day! Very expensive in there for food... More

Sounds brilliant on the website, but it's overrated, overpriced and over populated. You need to camp out from about 10am to get a seat for the night time, entertainment was poor (we could hear it but not see anything) Accommodation needs updating and improving, a coat of paint doesn't fix the problems. We won't be coming back......

We booked this break while we were in resort last year as the saving is so much. We stayed in Gold in Sands and cannot fault the accommodation at all. Would definitely want this block again. Once again we had the Premium Dining which was really good with so much choice. The only thing that let it down for us... More

this was our 2nd Christmas at Butlins and although my husband was very sceptical last year but ended up enjoying every minute and we booked to go back straightaway. We had the same room as before as I had requested [silver rooms) .The rooms are a reasonable size and all you need is there. The food is excellent quality and... More

Silver accommodation is not clean. The rooms are basic and very tired. Sack the cleaning company. It's not a bad place, you just need to have your vaccinations up to date. If you expect a scruffy soviet chalet, you will not be disappointed. It's nothing like the website pictures. Premium dining is good value.
