We enjoyed a lovely break which the children loved. The accommodation was good and the dining plan also excellent. However, with extra costs for the hired bikes (£9.50 for half hour), a cost to join B Line to legitimately queue jump, £5.00 extra for go karts, a cost for the cinema, the indoor trampolines, etc. It seemed a bit too...

We upgraded to a silver bungalow with a patio in Holnicote Village and it was well worth the £60 extra. Comfy beds, plenty of hot water, good shower and a lovely newly laid patio with double doors leading out to it. Pizza Hut has gone and been replaced with a different pizza shop, which seemed to be ok as we... More

Spent a week at Butlins over the Easter break with 7000 other people. Despite being busy there was plenty on entertainment. Only complaint was the repetitive nature of the entertainment when staying for a week.

We have returned from another exhausting weekend at Butlins! It is non-stop action packed fun filled adventure.... If you like having your money being spent like water pouring from a tap, your children turning into ungrateful, whining monsters and worse listening to others behave in a similar manner... You need to drink alcohol with breakfast to get through the day... More

Over 7000 guests over the Easter weekend but I don't believe Butlins have the facilities to accommodate all these guests. Restaurants full and long food waiting times. Most children's activities fully booked by time we arrived. The biggest joke was the pool. We queued for over an hour to get in and then we're told we had 1hr 30 to... More

Stayed in West Lakes Village. Very well appointed and not like the Butlins accommodation of years ago. Beds were very comfortable indeed the Butlins staff were very helpful too and grounds kept very tidy.

Well organized, restaurant staff friendly and helpful (Premier dining ).All very clean ,tables cleared promptly and wiped down. Butlins could extend opening times of the restaurant- one hour and three quarters ,isn't a big window for breakfast ,considering the large numbers catered for . Chalet, basic but clean ,you get what you pay for.

Although the staff are really helpful, it is disappointing that they only have the number of plates mugs plates cutlery for the number of people in the chalet. You really need double the amount especially when you have a dish washer! The cost of using the wifi is really over priced and if you stop using it you are logged... More

This is the 14th year when we have stayed at Butlins for Spring Harvest at Easter. Always awesome, a Christian festival which is one massive family celebration of God’s love all week. Wonderful children's and youth programme. Equipping the church (of all demoninations) for action. Refreshing, reviving and bringing new Christians to birth every year. Must go! We have already...
