    Sun HolidaysIn the Sun Skegness Butlins Self Catering Apartment or not?

    Has anyone gone to Butlins through the sun before? I have just booked mine but it didnt ask if we wanted a self catering apartment or a room bed and breakfast. Do they ask later which we would like? Any help regarding this will be very appreciated. We have a young family so we do really need a self catering apartment with fridge etc. I will be worrying about it all day until I know. Many thanks to all replies. x

    butlins do a different option under half board usually on the sun code form
    although when they send your booking you will be sent a form to upgrade to half board although you don't get a fridge in there but they will give you a little portable fridge if you need it

    When you get your booking confirmation through, there will be a number you can phone and just ask them, or tell them what you want.

    It's a good deal, especially as you were lucky enough to get Butlins!
    They ALWAYS go 1st.
    We missed out this year, even though i had been before and got to book online, we've ended up at Havens but still good value for money.
    We always upgrade a couple of levels. Think we've gone for the luxury plus this year and it works out at £ 3 pppn extra which is still a lot cheaper than the brochure price.

    Oh right, oh well it was a good deal I will just have to upgrade to a kitchen. They are alot more spacious and even though we are on holiday we realistically will spend some time in the apartment. Thanks for your reply. Rep given

    I was amazed to get Butlins It will be a nice break we dont live too far away (Nth Norfolk). I am glad to hear to you have your holiday all sorted out. It is good what you can save when you try. We have booked center parcs for June, we saved 30% on that due to paying for it in January. I have never been so organised Long may it last. x Thank you for your reply - rep left.

    Its nearby. The entertainment will hopefully make up for the poor accommodation? We went before and it wasn't great I have to admit. Have you been and not enjoyed Butlins Skegness?

    Ive booked Robins in error, we haven't even got Butlins! God it's ironic. The evil swines have changed the number from 32 to 31! I am soooo angry. Have Butlins had a fire then? This other caravan park will probably be heaving now that the sun changed the number. It says 32 in the 2009 Snn holidays brochure but still they have changed it. I rang them and they were so rude, it makes me wonder why I bother with it. They will not change my booking even though I see it as their error. The brochure we use every year, never had a problem before.

    Sorry i should clarify the fires involved was the main parade complex on the seafront and there was another one involving another arcade... ]http//ne…stm

    If there is ever a fire down " chip alley " the place will burn for weeks.;-)
