Newest Review: ... as well as seeing a shift in quality in entertainment. There seems to be a lot more emphasis on the Red Coats being able to sing, dance and entertain rather than just simply walking around being pleasant. This has seen a noticeable increase in performance level and subsequently a much improved night life. Butlins took the brave decision a number of years ago to reduce the number of camps ... more

I went to butlins every year as a child and really enjoyed it so much. Then in 1998. after finishing a college course in leisure and tourism I went to work at butlins skegness it was hard work but you got plenty of social time as well it was while I was their that I met my partner as he was working their as well him in the kitchen at coral beach me as a waitress. We have been together ever since and we now take our children to skeggy for fab holidays we love it every time.

I have been going to butlins holiday resorts for the best part of 20 years and still enjoy them as much today as I did back then, but for very different reasons. Obviously as a child Butlins really excelled in every way but as I got older and went through my clubbing sort of age I still found going to Butlins with friends to be a great experience. Now I have a toddler myself the whole experience has changed again and is better than ever now just because I get to see the pure joy on my daughters face as Barney walks by and things like that. Butlins has changed considerably over the years in terms of size and quantity as well as seeing a shift in quality in ... Read the complete review

I worked at Butlin's Skegness in the simmer of 89 and will never forget the experience. Back then you were payed £55.00 for a six day working week. I worked in the sweet kiosks and the shopping centre and met some good people. We used to joke about how it was the closest thing to being in prison due to the heavy handedness of the security guards and the very strict rules and regulations. Staff accommodation back then were the original 1930's holiday chalets with a bed, wardrobe and sink and only one plug socket. It was a sackable offense to have a double plug adaptor, due to someone the previous year overloading the socket and burning a row of chalets down. ... Read the complete review

What can I say about Butlins??? Welll I use to work as a sales assistant for the Bognor Regis Butlins way back in 2002 and although it was a seasonal job I really enjoyed it. If things hadnt gone the way they had when i returned home for christmas I may well still be working for them now. Well I really enjoyed the day to day goings of Butlins everyday Id meet new people, some staying for a few days some for 2 weeks. I worked in the skyline pavillion either in the gift shop, sweet shop,Joke shop or on the sand stall. This made my job here more interesting as I would usually be doing something different everyday so it never got boring for ... Read the complete review

Stayed at Butlins Skegness for Christmas,7 adults and 2 teenage girls.The accommodation was silver self-catering,the apartments were very comfortable and clean.There was entertainment from morning till late night ,lots to join in for younger children and I think it would be a Christmas they would never forget.We had the Xmas dinner and that was very good, the only down side was there is still lots of things you had to pay for and you might have noisy neighbours so take some ear plugs.The Red coats (if there still called that) were fantastic and put on some wonderful shows and they certainly earn their money!
