“An amazing trip once again for WWE”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Another year... another butlins group. Rooms where spacious and very nice (Thankfully booked a ground floor for my just learning to walk toddler).

Food: Not really its best its been.... have booked again to go the highest in the food.

Pool: Freezing cold on the Saturday due to the amount of people in the pool. Annoying thing is then when we told our daughter out of the pool only after half an hour and getting cold we has to wait 45mins to get changed in the family changing was disgusting to find three boys just been messing around .... not really needed when your have a one year old in a towel trying to keep her warm.

The one downside to this there was no amusement park specially there is nothing really for a one year old to go on but I hear its open this year fingers crossed butlins we are coming back

Room Tip: For large groups book early to get better prices

Well were to start... completely flood all around butlins (I know its not there fault), they couldve at least told us about this, maybe a come at your own risk or rebook alert... had no option other than to go through a river as we travelled over 2 hours there and got 20 minutes away and had this problem, oil lights come on car and apparently they didnt know about floods when there member of staff helped us out.., then we got there after eventually getting our cars out of a river in road only for a member of staff to give as our key and points around the corner... at 7pm, dark.. begs the question. . "Where are we staying?" :/ and again points around the corner and say down about 100m, and then the rooms.. which I would not call standard.. with a gap of around 2cms between door and doorframe curtains blowing, ice cold and we had a 1 year old with us, (we was recommended these standard rooms as there apparently not much different then the upgrade versions apart from the price which is ridiculous) window frames cracked, door would not close properly, had to go out and buy a heater from Tesco which didnt help to be honest... complained about this after try different solutions to avoid bothering the staff as they aready have a bad reputation, and the manager was just listening and saying the same crap "you got to go to guest centre"..
Which went to only tp he told the manager will be at your room in 20 minutes.. passing the bullet basically. .. and then in the bathroom the towel rail fell on the my son... screws sticking out and not one screw hole on the bar to screw ot back on, basically ot was rammed on and left there

there as also other rooms that bad been wood put around the doors and windows because of gaps

overall joke of a (can you call it weekend holiday/break) it was so embarrassing I would not get my camera out.. it was an absolute joke..

All of us now ill... also before someone is thinking "why not upgrade" they offered us a upgrade but after talking to a family in the upgrade apartments the said "dont bother, closer to the sea, its freezing!"

Never again... maybe.. huge maybe in summer but with the prices up there id rather go aboard...

Took pics of everything if anyone wants proof...

We have just come back from our first trip to butlins and what a fantastic trip it was! Got there on the friday to find we had been upgraded to better accommodation, which was lovely. The apartment was very clean and fresh and had everything we needed. Service fab, we rang to say our toaster wasnt working and we had a new one delivered to the door within the hour! Entertainment great our 4 year old was in awe. He Loved all the shows especially the skyline gang. We didnt bother with centre stage as the queues were huge but not a problem as our son was ready for bed after the skyline gang each evening anyway! Bobs yard brilliant for under 5s we spent a lot of time in there. Swimming pool probably the best weve ever been to in the uk. Never time to get bored as always something to do or see. Redcoats are soo good with the kids especially Frankie. They really work very hard. Fish and chip shop lovely. Had a nice meal at firehouse grill very tasty. Toy shop not overpriced. Cannot find anything negative to say! We look forward to our next trip in the summer :-)

We were also at the "Giants of rock" weekend...

I had pretty low expectations before going but was VERY pleasantly surprised...

We had booked "Silver" accommodation with linen and maid service, together with the Half board food package (just in case..)

Our Flat had two bedrooms, a lounge, a kitchen area that was fitted with modern clean appliances..and a bathroom/toilet with shower.

All very clean and well maintained..

Bed was actually a bit on the small side (too short)

Food? - well what a surprise!!! - buffet style, but LOADS of choice, freshly cooked (more stuff coming out of the kitchens all the time - not very much sat around "Dying and Drying" under hot lights...)

Quite frankly better than some 3 or even 4 star hotels that I've eaten in...

Drinks prices reasonable in all the bars...

If you go S/C - there are a couple of Spar shops on site that sell everyting (including alcohol) at normal Spar prices...

Staff? - all that we encountered were cheerful and friendly..

Entertainment was great, will be going again next year!!

I have Been to a lot of resorts in England on trips away but had never been to butlins. When I saw the music weekend we booked it not really knowing what the resort was going to be like and it was the best depiction ever. It was an amazing weekend and we have booked it again for 2015. Would definitely recommend going the staff at the resort were so friendly and the resort had everything that we needed on site. Overall it was the perfect stay

Room Tip: With the rooms you get what you pay for so if you prefer rooms that have extras you pay more for it...

Oh yes it sure was and even more ironic, my FIRST ever visit to a Butlins resort.
Of course the accommodation is budget, but its all you need, especially a good nights sleep. We were both impressed with the comfort of the bed. A kettle enabled us to make our own hot drinks.
We had the standard accommodation comprising of a double room, twin room and a bath rather than shower. Never heard a sound from the rooms either side of us.

Dined in the Deck Restaurant for breakfast and evening meals. Choice was superb as was the quality.

As the titled suggests we went for the themed Rock weekend which most certainly lived up to its name. My body is paying the price :-(

An extremely well organised weekend.

WELL DONE BUTLINS

We was pleasantly surprised to be honest!! Ease of check in we stayed in a lodge which is a caravan with wood panelling very spacious, had everything we wanted, very clean and general repair was okay.
We thought the entertainment was good vaule for money although David Gest did repeat the artists names at least 8 times which was very annoying both shows started late?? We used the swimming pool which was in excellent condition very clean, water was warm we stayed at center parcs last summer there pool wasn't as clean!!
We only ate in the chicken restaurant which was okay Arran our waiter was very helpful some of our party went in their later and also mentioned Arran to be helpful!!
The spar isn't overpriced as others say you always pay a bit more it's the convenience there are supermarkets within walking distance, mine-head it's self is very pleasant.
We would go back and stay in a lodge or blue sky apartments
Thank you for a surprising & pleasurable stay Butlins!!
