Having been to all three Butlins resorts in the last two years we now only go to Bognor Regis, Why? because it is smaller, it seems designed for the younger clientele and it has the Shoreline Hotel.
Apart from Billy’s bedroom the Shoreline also has Character breakfasts. You need to book on to these at reception and they are very popular. The character breakfasts are between 7:45 and 9am Usually two characters will come round each table and say hello to the children. You also get the option to take photos and give them a cuddle. We booked in a bed and breakfast, giving us access to these character breakfasts but also the freedom to try out different restaurants for our evening meal.
The bedrooms are built with children in mind, bright decor crossover bunkbeds and free to hire bedguards. At reception there is a large selection of dvds which are free to hire (with a £10 returnable deposit) and there are both adult and childrens dvds available. With a dvd player in each room the whole family should be happy here, I know we were.
As for entertainment the whats on guide details everything on and where to find it. There is also Splashworld, soft play area and the tots funfair all of which are either in the skyline pavilion or attached to it, this means that if the weather is bad you dont need to get wet to still have fun. There is lots to do outdoors including the larger funfair with merry go round, pirate ship and trampolines plus rides for bigger children. With lots of sports activities there will be something for everyone.
So what did we do whilst we were there? My two love the characters and Puppet castle so we spent most of our time inside the Skyline Pavilion watching the shows and making new friends.
To show you just how action packed our week was I will be issuing a new blog post each day detailing what we did, where we ate and what the kids (and us) liked best.
