“Tired, dirty and poorly run”

Written on: 12/08/2015 by zvHess118 (1 review written)

After a four year break, I had great memories of Skegness so decided to bring my kids back,. However, things have changed dramatically. No free wifi...where are we? The back of beyond!! I paid £1,760 for a week away, and the paint is peeling, the place is filthy and the shows are tired. Diversity were supposed to be playing but not the week I booked...although there is no dates for when or in fact where they are playing so I suppose it's Bognor. The redcoats such as they are cannot be seen… Read Full Review

“Butlins Skegness”

Written on: 19/03/2014 by AnnMarieTovey (1 review written)

Just had a 60`s weekend break with friends (to celebrate our 60th birthday) What a fabulous weekend. Staff - fantastic, food - fantastic, cleanliness of the chalets - fantastic. There was only one thing we moaned about, sat near the gents one evening and there was a bit of a smell. Would recomend this holiday to anyone. In fact when we came home my daughter was so impressed she has booked to bring her family on a Butlins holiday… Read Full Review

“Marvellous Madness ”

Written on: 21/12/2013 by Kayleehall (1 review written)

Me and my Family went to Butlins (Skegness) for a short weekend the best holiday i have ever been on. We went in October 22nd 2012, We fa rely enjoyed our stay there was lots of activities to do. There are lots of shops for you to go to. The accommodation was great comfortable beds. The splash water-world was fantastic full of exiting new adventures for you to try. I recommend it as a family Holiday. You have to go for over four days. Our Holiday was jam packed. We are going again in… Read Full Review

Stephils Butlin in Skegness is brilliant,, we stayed there for two nights and found that thats a very good option to stay and reasonably affordable as well. My kids enjoyed the most.. Would recommend this due to my money worth spending and good customer service. Next time I will go with all my family as they do have four bedroom caravans… Read Full Review

“Fab holiday for kids and parents!!”

Written on: 20/10/2013 by missa86 (1 review written)

We have visited Butlins Skegness three times now and have loved it each time. The entertainment is brilliant for the kids and adults too. Plenty for them to do in the time you are staying there. Admittedly there are some areas that could do with some tlc and improvement ie new carpets in Centre Stage and the Pavillion and also Bobland. Also could do with new rides and games in the funfair and amusements. But above all the holiday park is great. Definately worth paying a little extra to stay in… Read Full Review

“Loved it!”

Written on: 14/04/2013

I stayed at Butlins Skeg in April 2013 with my 9 and 12 year old children. On tight budget I booked the standard room only and was delighted to see that this included food. My friend paid for gold self catering and paid double what I did in the same week and she went self catering. There was no difference between our rooms decor or quality wise. Before I went friemds and family told me horror stories about the food court. How I would queue outside for hours for a table and once I had one… Read Full Review

Emmaw, read my review below Ellie's to get a realistic, honest account of this disgraceful resort and the disgusting customer service afforded by Bourne Leisure to its customers.
My advice would be to get your money refunded if at all possible and stay well away from any holiday park Bourne operate!!!!!
We mistakenly holidayed at Haggerston Castle, Craig Tara and last year at Butlins not realising Bourne owned it as well!!!
All three were equally as awful an experience as each other!
You have been warned!!! Good luck.

“BOURNE/BUTLINS, CASH FOR TRASH!!! STAY AWAY! ”

Written on: 17/02/2013 by SMITHIE22 (2 reviews written)

OVERALL......DIRTY, FILTHY, RUNDOWN HOLIDAY PARK. SOME STAFF GAVE GOOD SERVICE. CHILDRENS ENTERTAINMENT MAGICAL FOR YOUNG ONES, BUT TOO REPETITIVE. ACCOMODATION IS AN ABSOLUTE DISGRACE, THEY SHOULD PAY YOU TO STAY IN THESE FILTHY, STINKING APARTMENTS!!! Arrived late because we had near 500miles of driving to get there. Collected keys from guest service office. Drove to accomodation, (Silver)entered to most awful smell, carpets were sticky and stained. Furniture was broken, main bedroom door… Read Full Review

EVERYTHING I HAVE SAID IN THIS REVIEW IONA IS TRUE AS PERSONALLY EXPERIENCED!!!
YOUR IGNORANT UNINTELLIGENT REMARK DOES NEITHER ADD OR DETRACT ANYTHING WORTHWHILE TO THE REVIEW!
I SUSPECT YOU ARE A BUTLINS EMPLOYEE.
THE SAD THING IS NONE OF WHAT I SAID IS A LIE BUT A CLEAR HONEST ACCOUNT OF HOW AWFUL THIS PLACE AND BOURNE LEISURE REALLY ARE!!!

Could'nt agree more!!!!
Place is rundown and dirty, and if you put animals in the standard of accomodation they put humans in, you would be fined. Bourne Leisure can only be assumed to be above the law, and have no idea what customer service is!!!

“Dirty and unhelpful service”

Written on: 15/08/2012 by yabbyou (6 reviews written)

Room was dirty, curtains where burnt and singed around the bottom edges you would not have let your dog sleep on the sofa because of the state it was in, toilet leaking which they tried to fix on 3 occasions, when we left it was still leaking, when we asked to move they could not do this because there was 7 of us, which is understandable if they had then sorted these issues, but they made no attempt and the staff where completly unhelpful. We did write to them and they made an derisory offer… Read Full Review

“Location good, entertainment not so good.”

Written on: 29/07/2012

We chose Skegness as it has direct access to the beach, however they lock the gate at 5-30, too early for us.We took four grandchildren all boys ages 10 -15 not many rides for them to go on, and the ones there were we had to pay £5 a time.We also had to book for activities such as climbing wall ect,all payable.Entertainment well it might of been ok if we could have found a seat in any of the venues, we were there for a week and never saw one show, we complained about seating and were told they… Read Full Review

“Just returned from a Monday - Friday trip to Butlins...”

Written on: 30/04/2011 by Health Hazard (3 reviews written)

Just returned from a Monday - Friday trip to Butlins with family.
We've been to Skegness several times before and thoroughly enjoyed it this time too.
Accommodation - Stayed in Gold. Not too bad although have probably had cleaner apartments.
Food - Dined in Coast. Lots of choice. Never disappointed.
Entertainment - Didn't bother with the queues for Reds or Centre stage but saw plenty of the Skyline.
Pool - Nice and warm.
Also, the site has been updated in a few places (gardens, changing… Read Full Review
