My partner and i went to Butlins Minehead early June, stayed in a twin deluxe room, which was spotless. The patio gave us an area where you could sit in the sun and enjoy a beer straight from your own fridge. Had the dinner package for the Deck and Yacht club, food not as good as in previous years, especially as my partner found a spider in her baked potato- free pint in recompense.
Entertainment very variable, with the Take That tribute act a particular favourite, but basically the same as previous years. Missus extra upset that Redcoat Kyle has jumped ship to Haven, none of the others have his charisma!
The real problem with Butlins is the other people that go there. Vests, bald heads and tattoos the norm, its like a bouncers convention. Watch yourself once the kids have gone to bed, Mrs had a delightful woman try to steal a stuffed toy from her!

Room Tip: Get the best room you can afford, and if you are a repeat customer, book next year in the place in the Pavillion

So myself, my wife and 2 young children had booked with butlins for tots break and being our first time we were a little apprehensive with what to expect .. As we arrived in to guest services to check in we we're greeted by a very bubbly and happy member of staff called Rachel who was very helpful and interacted with the children very well telling them all about splash world .. Once we had found our accommodation we were very pleasantly surprised with the standard of cleanliness in the rooms and bathroom. Our children absolutely adored the skyline gang and Billy Bear. We ate In almost all of the eating places across resort but the one that really stood out for us was the sun and moon where we we're greeted by a very smiley and happy waitress called Taylor who looked after us brilliantly!! Nothing was to much trouble for her and the way she was with the children was outstanding she really went out of her way playing with them and making sure they had colouring to do and we had plenty to eat and drink, she was such a pleasure!! Abbie our oldest loved Pizza Hut because of the amount of ice cream she could eat and sky our waitress in there was really polite and friendly. I would recommend butlins to all my friends and family with young children cause the resort is safe and child friendly, the staff are amazing and over all just such a good family holiday, will definitely be going back next year!!

I was very nervous after reading some of the reviews on here but thankfully I was pleasantly surprised. The accommodation (silver bungalow) was spotlessly clean on arrival and the kitchen, bathroom and furnishings were all new. The only bad bits were the huge amount of cigarette butts everywhere and a broken light outside our room. The resort itself was very clean, there was a huge cleaning presence wherever you were, cleaning tables/floors ect ect, so I would say Butlins really go above and beyond to keep the resort clean and tidy.

My partner and kids loved Splashdown and went everyday, the space bowl was very popular. They also did the high ropes and this was a great activity.

The fairground was also a big hit with my 10 and 13 year old and the 3 year old loved the carousel and the kiddie fair.

We didn't eat at the resort so can't review the food, we used nearby Morrisons and self catered.

The beach is a very short walk away and we had great weather so went everyday.

The evening entertainment was very good, we had the B line fast passes and to us they weren't really worth it but I imagine they would be better if it was the school holidays. The shows get really busy and there's an odd smell (cheesy feet although my partner thought it was the carpet cleaner!) but the quality of the entertainment was great, Scooby Doo was good fun.

As a family with a baby, 3, 10 and 13 year old, Butlins was ideal for us as there was so much to do (too much, I'm exhausted!) and something for everyone. It's definitely the best resort of it's type (we've done other caravan parks over the years). If you want to eat and drink there I imagine it could be very costly but we managed to have a great time and keep the cost down.

Hi Amandajamesrufus

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely review.

We love Splash Waterworld too, and we agree that the beach at Minehead is smashing.

We will share you comments about the evening venues with the resort team so they can act upon them.

Thanks again

We booked a sun paper holiday and for the money we had a great time. The appartment was ok it a bit outdated but was clean and they even gave us a little bottle of washing up liquid, sponge and tea towel. The cooking utensils were lacking a bit but we managed for the 4 days we were there.
We took our 18 months old and the resort was great for a toddler there was several parks to play in and an indoor play area with a bouncy castle which he loved. The kids shows were great and the evening entertainment was good too. The indoor and outdoor pools were both lots of fun. My son especially loved the slides. The resort was clean and there was lots to do even with a young child. We will definitely go again.

Room Tip: Standard appartments

The entertainment at butlins was it's only redeeming feature and to be fair I can't fault it, but the accommodation was damp tiny uncomfortable and bare. There was constantly work being done everywhere which was disturbing and not exactly special feeling, the maid left our door open on one occasion and our windows wide every time. Immediately the food plan dining was not to our standard, cold rubbery and terrible choice in a busy canteen, and our request to be removed from that option was dealt with badly. There is nothing to do with under 3s really and our youngest spent much of the time unhappy in her pushchair. I would feel guilt at the thought of anyone going there that I hadn't warned.

Hi Loraness

Thank you for leaving a review, and for being so honest.

We set high standards for ourselves, and we appear to have fallen below and, in the process, failed to meet your expectations. We apologise for that.

We would love to have the chance to discuss your experiences with you further. If you are prepared to email us at tripadvisor@Butlins.com with your TripAdvisor name, real name and email address, we will get in touch.

Thanks again

Maria
