Butlin's wins Mumsnet Rated


When it comes to family holidays, lounging by the pool in peace usually becomes a thing of the past – especially if you have young children to entertain. However, a trip to Butlin's means the kids will hardly ever get bored.

So it’s no wonder Butlin's have won Mumsnet Rated. Out of 180 Mumsnet users, 87% said that they would visit Butlin's again and 86% would recommend to a friend. With so much on offer, the little ones are kept thoroughly entertained throughout the day – giving the rest of the family a chance to relax.

A new pool for the whole family

While everyone loves a good splash about, Mumsnet users agree that poor changing facilities can be a major headache. Worrying about keeping the kids together and safe as well as the family's belongings adds a layer of stress that no-one needs. Butlin's responded to these concerns with a £40m new pool at Bognor Regis.

The new Changing Village has underfloor heating, family-friendly changing rooms, a nursing room, seats to strap little ones in while the parent gets changed and a swimsuit spinner – so no more carrying around soaking wet costumes. With main attractions including seaside-inspired rides, a dedicated tots pool and a lido area with beach huts and loungers, it’s clear that Butlin's know a thing or two about keeping families safe and happy during their stay.

Here's what Mumsnet users had to say

“Butlin's is brilliant! I have been going there since 1993 after being introduced to it by my husband when were first started dating. He's been going there with his family since the 70s. Obviously it's a very different place now, but it still seems like a second home to us.”

“We go there a lot. The offers make it unbeatable value and DS adores the activities programme. We have been to them all now, but Skegness is our closest.”

“Would definitely recommend the Wave Hotel apartments. We have four DC so need a lot of space to avoid being on top of each other. These apartments are lovely and spacious and very clean.”

“We are just back from Minehead, which I understand is the biggest of the three. I found it clean and the staff very friendly and accommodating.”

“We went for the first time in September and are due to go back in April. It was excellent for our three-year-old.”

“Everyone who works there always does their best to ensure the children have a good time.”

“Tots' week was brilliant for the under-fives. I was also very impressed by the catering in the restaurants for severe food allergies.”

“The swimming pool was a lovely size and the water was well-heated. Staff were friendly.”

“Listening to what our guests need and want guides everything we do at Butlin’s, and that’s why hearing from Mumsnet users has been so valuable to us. It’s helped us put key elements, that we know are important to families, into new developments – such as our lovely new Splash swimming pool at Bognor Regis.”
