Guest's review of Butlins, Skegness


“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 people would steal it. This was untrue. We went in to dinner at opening time and got straight in with no queues at all. Breakfast we went at various times over the week amd had no problems. Food wasnt exactly 5 star but was nice and there was a wide choice. My children liked the buffet atyle as they could mix amd match. The room was spotless amd the beds were comfortable. The staff were all really friendly and helpful. My children dont do "organised fun" so didnt join in with tje kids clubs but had plenty to do. It was a shame that some of the activities and rides cost £4 a go as it is pitched as being all in but besides tjat a great fily holiday. We saw people queuing hours before ahows started to get a seat. There was no way in hell I am wasting 2 hours of my life in a queue. We arroved 5 minutes before shows started and while we didnt get front row seats we got a table amd enjoyed the shows just as much
