went on a long weekend with our 7 year old granddaughter. excellent variety of shows (especially the Aladdin show),shopping and general activities.Went self catering but had plenty of choice of eating places.Only down side was you could not enter your chalet until 4pm on the Friday and had to vacate chalet by 10am on the Monday...so actually only had two days for your money!!!! Upgraded chalet to silver bungalow which was well worth it..the basic chalets are basic!!!!Take plenty of money..we spent most of our time on the twopenny arcade games..our grand-daughter spent a fortune in trying to get the free plastic toys from the machines...,.but to see her face of excitement when she won a toy was well worth the money!

Room Tip: upgrade from the basic chalet..

Have just got back from a great week at butlins minehead, location is great just a short walk into town, our gold apartment was nice, after reading all the awful reviews regarding cleanliness I expected the worst but we were all pleasantly surprised, beds were comfortable and rooms had lots of storage space, as a group of four aged between 20 and 30 there was so much to do in the resort including go karting , bumper boats which were great fun

Not a family atmosphere at this Butlins. Staff not very friendly at all, quite disinterested in fact. There is no culture or feeling of fun amongst the Butlins team and this rubs off. With a family of two kids (and one new born), we were hoping for some R+R in a friendly atmosphere - this was not the experience at Minehead. We have been to Bognor (so this is not a dig at Butlins) and we really enjoyed it. Butlins needs to inject some of the Bognor culture of fun and helpfulness into its Minehead resort!!

Room Tip: if you have a newborn, make sure you insist on a ground floor apartment. Getting up metal stairs (with a pushchair) is not easy.

Just arrived back from butlins expecting it to be dire but it turned out to be one of our best family holidays ever! The staff were so friendly, kind and helpful and the food in the yacht club was lovely and well worth the upgrade cost. We stayed in gold accommodation and we were very pleased with the facilities in the room. The kids thought it was amazing and they loved the free funfair, swimming and all the other activities. There is no way they could have become bored. Just wish we could have stayed longer!!

Just returned from a 3 night break and I have to say I had my reservations about going to Butlins, but we had a great time. We were looking for a cheap family weekend break away and this ticked all the boxes, within budget with lots of things to do if the weather let us down. I travelled with my parents and 14 year old daughter. We stayed in a Gold Apartment, it was clean and comfortable. We were self catering, there is a Spar shop on the complex, but we used the Morrisons across the road as found this to be cheaper. We enjoyed the evening entertainment, yes it was cheesey at times, but good fun and they really do give it their all to make sure you have a great time. Everything is priced reasonably from eating out to the chargeable activities such as the Cinema and bowling (we went bowling after 10 pm as it only cost £3 ea a game). There are some nice things to do outside of the complex such as taking the open top bus to Lynton and Lynmouth and some lovely walks in the area. We took the steam train to Dunster and visited the castle and medieval village which was wonderful. I would highly recommend this for a cheap, fun, family weekend break that won't cost the earth! The only down side was that we were woken up at 6 am every morning when they started emptying the bins.

Room Tip: All the apartments are in 3 storey blocks, all with similar view of gardens.
