Disadvantages: none i can think of
My friend and colleague invited me to a 4 day weekend in Butlins for the "90's weekend". I am always up for a laugh and the idea of listening to cheesy music from the decade I was born in certainly sounded fun. My friend gave me a detailed leaflet letting me know what acts were on it what room. She also told me she had booked chalets for us , 4 adults to a chalet. We were also given a leaflet with information about our chalet. We had also booked it for self catering. None of us had experience with what we needed to bring with us or what was expected of us. When we arrived at Butlins (in Bognor Regis) we had just finished work. We followed the well placed signs to reception. A happy to help member of staff greeted us and took our reference. He then told us our room numbers , the quickest and easiest way to get there along with information on luggage trolleys (which are free and based in convenient areas around the holiday park) following the well lit paths we arrived at our Chalet , using our room cards we entered our make shift home. The front room was well lit with two leather sofas ,a dining room table and four chairs , a flat screen tv , a ironing board hooked on the wall with a iron underneath. The kitchen has tea and coffee waiting for us as well as a small bottle of hand soap and washing up liquid. In the kitchen corner was a clothes airer. We also had a oven , toaster and microwave along with cupboards filled with glasses/plates and the likes. The bathroom was equipped with a toilet sink and shower and small radiator. With one roll of toilet paper. The first bedroom was spacious with two beds , a bedside cabinet separating and a wardrobe and heater in the corner. The next bedroom had the same furniture but with a added dressing table , mirror and stool and double bed instead of two singles. All the beds had quite soft bedding (white and clean) The first night we stayed in for a few drinks and then went to the club reds to listen to the acts that were on. The drinks were not over priced nor the cheapest I have ever had but that was expected. The second day we made use of the parks adult facilities including the arcade , cinemas and swimming pool . We also had dinner in local pub and grub there. We never had to leave the site once as it also had a conveniently place spa shop. The second night we went out in fancy dressed and explored more of the bars which we enjoyed. Basically what I am trying to make out that our whole experience here was pleasant , we had a incident where some youths broke a window panel but once we let staff know they kindly fixed it for us no questions or hassle involved. Although its self catering in the particular chalets we were in they had more then we expected which was a bonus!(I forgot to add the chalets also had self operated heating and freeview.
Summary: would recommend going (although only been once for the adults weekend!)
