Booked for Christmas and New Year as judging by advertising, this looked like a great idea. It couldn’t be farther from the truth! What an absolute shambles this ‘pandemic’ excuse is! Between Bojo thinking a work event, drinks and garden parties were allowed in lockdown and Butlin’s then throwing all rules and regulations out the window on New Years Eve alone? Does a virus not exist on New Years Eve? Or is it just an excuse to end entertainment every other night at half past 10? Ten nights I booked and we were bored after 2. Kids are 14 and 16 and wanted to stay in apt as shows were 45 mins then you were told to leave. Definitely doesn’t cater for their ages. They were harassed by security for bands, even though children don’t wear bands, and by New Years Eve, I was actually ready to go crazy with security for stopping my autistic son on numerous occasions, and letting him stand outside on his own until I showed his passport!!! Never again. Nothing to do, boring resort and the entertainment was just awful.

We travelled to Butlins Skegness as a large family party. I haven’t been for a long time (about 30 years…) so did not know what to expect. It was a bit of a mixed bag to be honest, but mostly good. The accommodation leaves a lot to be desired. We upgraded to Gold apartments, thinking they would be smart and modern. The external first impression is not good. We were in Mermaid Court, which was made up of New England style two storey buildings. The balcony/walkway to the apartment doors is a mess-it is covered in some kind of felt but is all lumpy, damaged and messy. It’s ugly, shoddy and dangerous for anyone unsteady on their feet. The apartment door had been painted quite recently I think, but the layers of paint were evident under the fresh coat, so it still looked scruffy. The doors and window frames need sanding back and repainting. Inside the apartment was clean, and the beds were comfy and fresh. However, the sofa was torn, the carpets badly fitted, there were marks and paint scuffs on the walls and the toaster looked like it had been used as a football! The fridge seal had also not been properly cleaned. Overall, I think the apartments need some serious investment and proper maintenance. We upgraded to premium dining, which was mostly great. The quality of the food, variety on offer each day and the general hygiene standards were excellent. I was apprehensive about the buffet style presentation but it was lovely. There were no long waits to be served, in comparison with other visitors who had not pre-booked dining, and seemed to be struggling to get into the restaurants. So I would definitely recommend pre booking a dining plan. My only comment about the restaurants would be that some staff were rude and harassed, and took their obvious bad tempers and frustration out on the customers. The Burger King was not a pleasant experience. There were too few staff, the food was cold and the tables were dirty. I definitely wouldn’t go back. The variety of entertainment on offer was great. The kids loved always having something to do-the fairground, slime making and evening shows were family favourites. The tribute acts we saw were fantastic. The pool was a little disappointing. Changing rooms were crowded and very dirty, which may have been due to staff struggling to keep up with the volume of visitors-but during Covid, this is not acceptable. The pool water was tepid and the slides underwhelming. Definitely have a look at the original Butlins chalet that has been preserved on the edge of the resort, along with the giant beach items on the edge of the entrance to Ingoldmells beach. All in all-I’ll go back to Butlins. I think if the accommodation and pool facilities were somehow brought closer to the Center Parcs standard, the brand would take the British staycation market, as Center Parcs-though beautiful-is contrived, full of faux middle class wannabes and becoming too big for its boots in price terms. Butlins was good fun, good value for money and precious memories were made.

Brilliant weekend for Rock & Blues. Staff worked very hard all weekend and always with a smile or a chat. Constantly cleaning and sanitising; hand sanitiser stations all over the resort. No complaints whatsoever felt very safe. Great lineup once again. Fantastic value for money.

My friends and I have visited Butlins for many years for the adult music weekends as well as with our children during school holidays. The fact that the children are now teenagers and still want to visit emphasised how much we have always enjoyed our time there. For our first visit post Covid closure we decided to upgrade from the Premium Dining to the All Around Dining as this was advertised as an upgraded, simple and quality experience dining in the on site restaurants. We logged on to book the restaurants as soon as we were able and found that the majority of the restaurants were already booked. Breakfast was only available at 0800 which when travelling with teenagers would be impossible to get them up and out of bed. And personally when on holiday as adults we did not want to get up early each day. When using premium dining, breakfast was flexible up to 10am. We also had an issue with the selection of restaurant reservations available in the evenings as they were fully booked. We managed to reserve Ludo’s Italian restaurant for some of the 4 nights and it was advertised as a two course meal from the menu. On arrival we were told that it was a buffet only during half term. This was very disappointing as we had “upgraded” from buffet style to enjoy the a la carte menu and ended up with even less of a selection while paying more. We also found that the choice for vegetarian children consisted of dried out tomato pasta each evening resulting in paying for another meal. In the Beachcomber restaurant the majority of the menu was unavailable on the evening we were actually able to get a table there, again ending up with us paying more for a very limited choice. In total it was a group of 4 adults, 5 teenagers and a 7 year old and we were all disappointed with the food choice and quality. Two of the children were also unwell after dining in the Beachcomber too. This was such a shame as we have always been very happy with the buffet restaurant and this option was sold as an upgrade. After contacting Butlins about the lack of choice and poor quality of the food we were told that there was no problem and they were closing the enquiry. So as a warning to anyone considering the most expensive way of inclusive dining, don’t bother as you will be very disappointed!

Visited Butlins Resort, Skegness for Brass Band Competition Weekend this weekend. We've been to this event many times before but this is the first time we've had children to being with us. Our daughter absolutely loved it and the children's facilities on offer (despite it being the middle of winter, and a specialist weekend event) were really good. We went to the huge soft play multiple times and the Splash Water World was excellent. I especially wanted to say how welcoming, friendly and helpful all the staff were, from those smiling and standing on the gate saying "Welcome to Butlins" at 9pm on a rainy Friday night, to the facilities team who arrived at our Chalet this morning within 10mins to help us figure out the oven when we were being super dumb!!! Thanks for making our stay so great!!!
