Did you book online at the website?

We did and now we wish we hadn’t bothered.  Butlins website is a long way from being user friendly.  I booked a room thing we had the facilities shown on the page from which I booked only to find having booked that that was a standard room whereas the picture on the website showed the better quality silver apartment.

Also I had trouble finding adequate information about what entertainment there was and when.  As a website aimed at children more care should be taken over showing what is available.

 

't show you

This is the sort of thing they don’t show you.  Not a pretty site is it?  But then most of the staff couldn’t care less so what do you expect.

Gym and Fitness Equipment

 

What did I enjoy more than anything at Butlins?

 

Hitting the Gym every day.

 

Although I must say this was in spite of the service not because of it.  No-one asked me if I wanted an induction or to be shown how any of the equipment worked.  On the two occasions I asked no interest was shown in helping me fathom out how to use the equipment.  It was left to other fitness enthusiasts to help me set the equipment up.  Very poor – what would have happened if I had had an accident or pulled a muscle.?

 

The equipment was good although the air conditioning left a lot to be desired.  There were no towels provided although I found out late in the week you could take a shower if you took your own.  Pity no-one told me that.

 

There was no water jar which I found very odd.  Apparently it’s for health and safety reasons because of electrical equipment although every other gym or fitness facility I’ve ever been in has water in the facility.  It’s another silly rule like the one that say’s you can’t help yourself in the dining room.  Their version – health and safety – my version?  Heaven forbid you should take two slices of meat instead of one!  But I digress.  Back to the fitness room and water.

 

When I first asked I was bought a plastic glass which I drank in the gym.  However next day I was told I had to keep coming outside to drink it.  Crazy!  It was warm enough in the fitness room but outside it was baking since the pool was open plan.  Just what you need in the middle of working out!  Especially when the next person in takes a drink in and no-one says a word!

 

Another point is that ‘drinks’ are free although no-one actually bothers to tell you that.  No big deal though – water or very weak orange squash.

 

Anyway enough about the fitness suite and equipment.  I did enjoy it.  It was a few peaceful moments in an otherwise crappy Butlins holiday.

Butlins Redcoats

Redcoats at Butlins

Richard on duty at Butlins Ocean Drive

Well strictly speaking I don’t think Richard is a Redcoat but he really was just about the only person I found pleasant and helpful.  He always had a cheery smile which is more than can be said for the rest of the staff.

 

If you think you are going to find lots of Butlins Redcoats with happy smiling faces, think again.  Most of the staff are Polish or Lithuanian, with a smattering of other Eastern European Countries.  About half of them are polite and doing their best with inadequate English.  The other half are miserable as sin and can’t wait to leave Butlins and go home.

 

We saw comparatively few Red Coats and they bore no resemblance to the Redcoats of old.  My grandson was frightened to death when one of them bounced up and down and shrieked and shouted, trying to get him to look at the camera so they could take a photo with Bob the Builder.

You might wonder why the Redcoat was so keen to get the photo.  Well that’s because they charge £5 for it.  What a surprise!  (See Butlins Cheap Deal for the truth about just how much you can really spend at Butlins.)

 

Back to the Butlins Redcoats.  I apologise to those Redcoats that are good at their job – unfortunately I didn’t meet you – the rest are just going through the motions and are more interested in their sex life than looking after the holiday-makers.

 

Although not Redcoats either, you may want to hear about staff at the Butlins Spa and the massage I had after using the Fitness Suite.

Butlins Prices

Butlins prices 1

Well here’s a few hints about Butlins prices.  Did you think most of it was free?.  You might want to have a look at Butlins Cheap Deals too.  If all you want is a prices then you may not be interested in which case go look at Butlins prices.

 

I came to Butlins a lot as a child – we never had much money.  The prices were excellent and pretty much everything was free.  The few bits that weren’t had prices we could live with or ignore.

 

But now?  Butlins what are you doing? Prices are horrendous and they are in your face everywhere.  Butlins get your act together.  Your prices may seem cheap at first glance but it’s VERY pricey as it starts to add up.

 

Butlins prices 2

Good Price?  If you have 3 kids that’s almost £100 per day to eat at the Yatch Club!  Not my idea of good prices and certainly not what I expected from Butlins. Don’t eat at Ocean Drive.  We had our half board meals there – it’s hectic dark gloomy dirty and I could go on.  See Butlins Reviews.

Prices at Papa Johns as horrendous.  Not something to do often – it costs a small fortune to feed a family of 5.

 

Butlins prices 5

More over the top pricing at yet another uninviting dining room.

 

Butlins prices 6

Family friendly pricing?  Good Value? Not in my book.  And don’t get me going on the disabled pricing policy.  They put you as far away from the facilities as it is possible to get then charge £70 a week for a scooter?  Is that a fair price?

Prices for fun activities soon add up too.  The costs are prohibitive – not good value for money.

 

Butlins prices 8

Butlins prices 9

At £4 each for a few minutes one parent was moaning his son had spent over £200 on the Go Karts in a week!

 

Butlins prices 10

Now you would be forgiven for thinking it costs nothing to use the computers.  Wrong again – it’s £3 an hour.

Butlins prices 12

How much does this cost?  £1?  Really think you’ll get them off it after one go each?

 

Butlins prices 13

At least we got a good photo.  It cost nothing which is more than we can say for anything photos they take which cost £5.

 

So to sum up do I think Butlins Prices are good?  Never in a million years.  When you take into account the filth and squalor and the poor service and dining facilities it was never a good price to begin with.  When you get home and add up the total cost my bet is you’ll wish you’d gone all-inclusive to Spain.  It would have cost less.

 

Butlins get your act together.  Your prices are lousy and not good value for money.
