“butlins has changed”
Reviewed January 8, 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.

“Xmas at Butlins was fab for children”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

We went on the 19th dec for 3 nights and whilst I had my doubts I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. We stayed in the gold accommodation which was lovely. Very clean and much more modern than I was expecting. We arrived to a lovely warm apartment with a small present for the children in each of the rooms, within a couple of minutes arriving we had a knock on the door by a member of staff welcoming us and gave us a xmas card. The apartment and kitchen was clean however the beds were it very uncomfortable. We were in close proximity to the sky-dome which was handy as it rained nearly every day we were there. The entertainment was brilliant for children of all ages (we had children aged between 2-13 in our group) and there was something for everyone even the adults. Not a lot of choice when eating out would be nice to have more variety. Staff were all very friendly and approachable. Would definitely recommend especially at this time of year. Parking was also close the the apartment which was also bonus!

“Butlins Minehead Resort recent visit”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Very disappointed with the cleanliness of the Splash world pool as got fungal infection on my body after the swim. The distance from the car park to the accommodation was a nightmare especially at night and in rain and not enough signs. The choice of restaurants is poor. Most of them are junk food. Shows in centre stage are over crowded. No proper food facilities at the bar within the centre stage - only popcorn, nuts and pancakes. The whole resort including rides are dated and doesn't provide the wow factor. Poor quality mattress on the bed gave us a backache.

“Christmas 7 day break at Butlins Minehead”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We arrived at 1pm on 23/12/12 at Butlins Minehead to a lovely Welcome - we were able to get straight in to our Bungalow which was spotless and decorated for Christmas. This was the second time we have done the Christmas break we up graded this time to include the yachet club premium dining which was well worth the upgrade. Winter Wonderland was lovely and Santa was very good. The Entertainment was first class with fantastic tribute acts our Favorite tribute was Badness WOW they are so good - The Red coats were so nice and Zoe And Sharena came and sat with us during our visits into Reds and spent time chatting - First Class customer service, Christmas Lunch was very very good could not fault a thing .
The whole break was so nice to just spend quality family time together - We have booked again already whilst on site for next christmas . Booking on site gives you the biggest discounts !!! We saved over £1681.00 of the list price.
*BUTLINS FIRST CLASS * Well done to all the hard working staff.
