Ocean Hotel at Bognor Regis

Certificate of Excellence

We had a fab time in the restaurant at The Ocean Hotel in Butlins. The staff made balloon animals with the kids whilst we enjoyed our meal. They were attentive and nothing was too much trouble. My boys fell in love with 2 of the waitresses that served us during our stay. The food was good but some of the dishes not as hot as we would of liked but the staff made up for that.

stayed at butlins bognor regis july 2011.Hotel was 4star? the hotel was nice the staff not overly helpful.Bedroom was nicely decorated and had seperate bedroom for children which they loved.The problem i had with this place was we stayed a week and did not get our bedlinen changed not once.The restaurant was more like a school canteen and the food looked and tasted like canteen food,Not good when you spend your hard earned money on a nice meal to be served slops.children loved butlins itself,but would not go back.

Room Tip: try and get a room facing south that way you can see all the resort

Stayed here for 90's reloaded, this is the second time here as we stayed here the same time last year. It didnt let me down again, it is a relaxing chilled out place to be, weather thats because there are no kids running around may help.

Breakfasts and evening meals are spot on cant fault them at all, you cant beat the big fry up after a heavy night out. The rooms are clean and modern, and beds are really comfy, bathroom is nice and spacious and the shower is fab, think I stayed in there far too long.

Adult weekends are such good fun, everyone has such a great time and you never see any trouble, my only moan is the pints of beer just taste soooo bad, I would stick to the bottle beers, but you do need a fair bit of money for the night outs as its quite expensive.

All in all another fab stay there, and will be booking to go back next year...well done Butlins!!!

I have been to this hotel twice and am returning again in December.
I am not the traditional Butlins type of person but we wanted to go somewhere in England that had activities for the children and read about this hotel.
It really is very good you would not know you were staying in Butlins accomodation! the rooms are clean, well decorated, everywhere in the hotel is sparkling clean and the staff extreme;y helpful. The beauty treatment rooms are luxurious and i would definately recommend booking treatments.

We stayed here as part of the BIG WEEKEND package. So.. no kids and wall to wall dressing up and boogying fun. That aside I would thoroughly recommend the hotel and butlins for a family stay too. And I am dead posh.

The hotel is bright and modern, no Hi di hi's here. We were blessed with fab weather in November and managed to sit on the superb balcony overlooking the sea. We kidded ourselves that we were in Miami!

Rooms are well designed, there is a special alcove area (it is quite big) with two single beds in (which would easily fit adults) that the kids can sleep in. The area has it's own TV too!! The main room has a fridge (yay) and tea and coffee facilities. Bathroom is funky with mood lighting and large and very modern bath and shower. As good as any 4/5* I have stayed in. The only drawback is that the two single beds in the main part of the bedroom are small (2'6") and smaller than those in the Kid's alcove (maybe ours had been moved round??).

Food in the kalidescope restaurant was fine, good choice and buffett style- always with a roast. Very sweet chef who was really helpful. Breakfasts were very good indeed and included massive choices and the best vegie sausages and mushrooms!!

The spa is FANTASTIC. This is the second time I have been. The treatments are very very well priced and the spa rooms tranquil. No hard sell and truly the best treatments I have had for the price (and I spa A LOT). Efficient booking- the only drawback is that the changing room and locker area is tiny and crowded when busy. They serve food and drinks in the spa area too. Champagne anyone?? Take my advice and book the magenta package which includes all day in the spa, lunch and also use of the wonderful spa facilties also a full 60 min facial, 75 min full body massage, and delux mani and pedi.

The weekend was fun, to say the least. The staff at the resort were without exception unfailingly professional and tolerant in the face of lots of drunk mad people dressed as smurfs and oompa loompas (this was an adults only 70's themed weekend).

Tip- try and get a top floor room facing the sea.

Room Tip: Top floor with sea view were the best in my opinion

We had 4 nights at the Ocean Hotel, one thing that will stand out for me is the fantastic service we received for 2 nights at the kaleidoscope restaurant by Lauren our Waitress the level of service she provided was attentive without over doing it…. As is sometimes the case, a Waiter or Waitress can make or break a meal and she certainly made the meal a delightful experience. Both nights we went for the A la carte option and the food was out of this world 10 out of 10. We enjoyed our experience so much that we have booked our summer holiday there in August 2012, Butlins certainly has the spark back great family holiday. For me another point that stands out is that Butlins is very Wheelchair friendly ramp options for every venue, they really did their homework on this point again 10 out of 10.
