Arrive here this afternoon standard apartment , all clean everything works , pool lovely , good reception .
Considering the recent severe flooding in the area the general area us reasonable. There is obviously lots of building work / upgrading of facilities going on , which made the car park areas interesting to navigate! But Butlins can't be held responsible for the weather. Admittedly if I had paid hundreds of pounds for this break I would probably be upset and there are lots of people eating in the skyline pavilion who were knocking the food packages but can't comment as I didn't book these. Will update when I have seem the evening entertainment .

I wasn't sure what to expect as I had read a lot of reviews before we went . We went 14-17th Feb and stayed in standard accomadation which was very clean and freshly painted. The heating was on when we arrived and was very warm with what looked like fairly new carpet and very clean bedding. The kettle and tea/coffee was a nice touch.The pool was great and the changing rooms were spotless. Pool very busy and there were long queues for slides but lazy river was fun ! My 4 year old went to the craft activity, football coaching and pirate treasure hunt and had a great time. All the staff in shops were really friendly and there were cleaners going round cleaning tables and picking up rubbish. Considering how busy it was all areas were really clean. Saw Bob the builder show and also Fireman sam and managed to get seats to see scooby doo in Centre stage which was packed. We got there early and queued for ages and when we got in there there were coats and drinks on the tables already !! My 12 year old loved the amusements, and fairground rides and enjoyed the Comedy shows in Reds and Titan . We had a great time and will definetly go back !

We have been regular visitors to Minehead in January for some 13 years and all previous visits have been very good. However, this year was very disappointing as we were not impressed with either the food served in 'The Deck', the attendant Bands (Some very good ones were noticeable by their absence) and last but not least, by the terrible parking facilities.

In March 2013 we went to Bognor Regis with four friends who we had persuaded to try Butlins as opposed to Warners. It was at Bognor that we were first introduced to 'The Deck' and we where all very impressed with this new innovation and we believedt that this would translate to a bigger Butlins establishment in a positive manner. However, we were all sadly, very mistaken and as such, we will now have to change our January 2015 Winter Break in line with our experiences of this January. Needless to say that our friends will not be going to visit Minehead again.

Went to the above festival this weekend and had a wonderful time. Bans were superb, food was excellent, room was lovely and all the staff were so helpful and friendly. Couldn't have wished for more.
