Booked a weekend break at Skegness Butlins for myself, my husband, 78 year old mum, and my grandchildren age 6 & 14.
We wanted an apartment for the space, and needed this to be ground floor as mum is a wheelchair user. The only one left was Gold which cost just over £500 for spring bank holiday weekend, ouch!
To be fair, the apartment was to a very high standard with everything you needed including a dish washer. Individual sachets of tea, coffee, sugar and milk for 6 people were there on arrival and topped up daily, and maids came in daily to make the beds and change bathroom towels when needed.
The majority of the resort is wheelchair friendly, but there are a few gravel paths which aren't easily negotiable.
We didn't eat much in the resort as it was good weather so we went out and about. We did eat at the Rock and sole, cost £32 for 5 of us which wasn't bad. The food was ok, served quickly and was hot. The staff were helpful, bringing our meals to us rather than expecting us to wait at the counter.
My granddaughter had an adrenalin pass to use the climbing wall, high ropes and free fall. £17 pre-booked and good value for money. The staff were great, putting everyone at ease and giving them the confidence to complete the activity.
I think it's unfair that there are some rides in the funfair that incur a charge. I can understand some of the activities being charged for but feel all funfair rides should be free.
We are planning to book again later in the year but will possibly be looking at silver accommodation next time.
