Just back from 4 night stay in Butlins Shoreline Hotel. This is our 2nd visit and would go again.
The hotel was spotless as was the resort generally which is amazing given the amount of customers there are (not to mention a few undesirables also). So well done. The food is overpriced which led us to eat off site which is fine. You could eat cheaply in say Burger King on site but not a proper meal. The drinks are reasonable priced but more bar staff would be useful in a few of the bars and pubs. The activities were good and the football trainer was brilliant.
A few of the pay for activities are overpriced but then again you dont have to do them, but plenty of free stuff to do if your budget cant stretch.
I dont think day trippers shoud be allowed in unless the resort is very quiet as I believe residents should not have to wait in line behind someone who has only paid for the day. Also I am worried that the new hotel will over congest the park so hopefully Butlins have plans to also expand activities (both free and pay for) as well as bar staff etc.
Would I stay again yes I would. It is cheap given the hotel and activities (a poor mans centre Parks if you like) However I have been to both CP and Butlins and truthfully I prefer the way CP looks and feels but Butlins is more fun and my kids prefer Butlins by far. The staff are excellent, the place is clean and hotel comfy and if the kids are happy then so am I. But before booking again I will see how the new hotel is affecting overcrowding and service.
But well doen Butlins for a great week.
