Having been to Butlins for 14 years we have noticed many changes over the years - this year though we had the most fabulous weather ever. The quality of the gold apartments was good and although usually we choose premium dining this was not an option as it was full, we choose standard instead and saved quite a bit of money in doing so! The food was good and plenty of choice and availability, all the staff were attentive and happy to talk to us. The dining area we were in was not air conditioned and with the heat it would have been welcomed - however we probably would choose standard dining in future and save money.
One noticeable factor was the increase in the children's grab machine 30p a go, they were 20p last year and 20p initially in minehead town although the arcades put theirs up too in the middle of the week. Also 50p (inside skyline) for a bit of onion on a hot dog was a bit expensive I felt. it was only 25p outside in the fairground.
The new fun fair was liked by the children and they had a great time along with splash water world . The nice thing this year was the amount of time we were able to spend on the beach - with it just across the road from our apartment it was easy to take the dingy, chairs etc.
