I stayed in Butlins minehead last year in what they call a 'silver' room and I was far from impressed, but I quite fancied trying the 90's weekend. It worked out far cheaper at Minehead than the other 2 Bulins so despite my previous experience I'd thought I'd give them another go.
Upgraded this time to the highest standard room that was available which was a Gold Appartment. Much better standard and I'd advise anyone to upgrade too as the silver rooms are awful. Location for the Gold apartments were good, right next to the action. Cleanliness still falls short (internal doors were filthy)
Entertainment over the weekend was good. It was adults only so the weekend was just one big alcohol fueled party with live music. Great fun if like us this is your thing. At £3.80 a pint and with the amount of alcohol that got sunk they must be making a fortune on these weekends!
I am sure last time I went there were certain areas which allowed free wifi. Now this has gone. C'mon Butlins! I know that your goal is to try squeeze every last penny out of everyone while they are here but when you are charging £3.80 a pint you could at least provide free wifi within the bar areas??!
I enjoyed it much more this time and the higher standard room probably contributed to this. But I still think that everything is so overpriced and remember they will try and completely empty your wallets (especially families with children) of your money once you are there with there not so all inclusive entertainment!
To summarise - good time, good music, empty wallet & bad hangover!
