“What a surprise !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

We have just been on a 4 day break at the shoreline hotel at Butlins Bognor, and I must say we were very surprised and impressed by the hotel. We have always gone for silver chalet before now but decided to treat ourselves to the hotel as we managed to get 50% off, The hotel room was big and the kids area with bunk beds is great my son even had his own TV which he thought was brilliant, the restaurant in the hotel was fantastic and the kids have their own section where they can help themselves. Food was of good quality, I would highly recommend

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view, if you can get a balcony even better

Me, my Husband and our 5 year old have just come back from a 5 day visit to the Shoreline Hotel at Butlins Bognor Regis. There are 3 Hotels on site and despite the Shoreline being the cheapest and oldest of these, the standard of accommodation and food was very good on the whole. The rooms were reasonably large, with bunk beds for the little ones (who also got their own DVD/TV) and a large double for us. The style was open plan, but the childrens' sleeping area is seperated enough due to the bathroom being in the middle. Food was plentiful and good and the staff were helpful. They have one of Butlins' main mascots - Billy Bear - "sleeping" on site and the kids can help put him to bed and there are story times etc.
The only complaints I have about the accommodation are that they play tannoy music in the corridors till late at night (if you call reception they will turn it off ) and there is no way to secure the door from being opened by over zealous little ones trying to find Billy Bear at 4am! The door just has a standard turn lock next to the handle - they could really do with putting latches further up to keep the children secure - it did worry me quite a bit especially as the childrens' sleeping area is right next to the front door.
The resort itself was good fun with loads for the under 8s to enjoy - don't think you can beat it for children's entertainment in the uk. We will definitely come again - but will be bringing something to jam the door with!

Great place to stay with under 9's. 2nd time we stayed here and each time it gets better. Stayed at the other hotels and this place is more suitable for my 4 year and 7 year old. Nice touch was the Billy Bear bed time stories and free pics. Will 100% stay again and will also include the food option as great value as kids ate for free. Thanks to all the staff and moreover for the minds who work very hard with a smile.

We've stayed here three times now and absolutely love it. The children couldnt be more excited about coming here.

The food has really improved and we found we were able to have 4 courses most nights. The desserts were great and there was always excellent choice for adults and children.

The beds are really comfy and the childrens rooms are brilliant with their own TV/DVD and bunk beds.

We will def keep coming until the children tire of it

I have Just enjoyed a week at the Shoreline Hotel again with my wife and children aged 4&6 I would recommend the first floor with rooms backing onto the car park as there is a small garden area with tables and chairs for each room were the kids can play.

The hotel was clean but not under the bed as I notice we had a caster that was broken that got replaced within 5 minutes of me reporting it! Very good service! But also notice a lot of dust on closer inspection.

There is everything you need in the rooms but it is now beginning to look a little worn but passable at the moment, the staffs were friendly and helpful and nothing seems to be a problem for them, Butlins is under selling itself, it’s not a old shabby British holiday result for the poor as some may still think.

Its moving forward with its hotels service and value and entertainment one of Britten’s best keeps secrets.

I recommend a stay for no more than seven days at any of the hotels they have there. We will be returning again next year for a short brake.

Room Tip: Good rooms for us would be on the first floor / ground with rooms backing onto the car park as there...

Hotel in general was spotless and staff very the most friendly and helpful I've come across. So much entertainment on we couldn't get through it all. Food choice was excellent and not much of a wait at peak times. We are booking again for next year and would say it is worth while getting the early booking discounts as we saved a fortune doing so.
