Getting Ready For Our Butlins Holiday

So we're away this week at Butlins down in Bognor Regis thanks to being a Butlins Ambassador. We're so incredibly excited about it, we usually take the toddler every year and this year he's at the age where he's really going to appreciate it. So not only is this our yearly escape to Butlins but we've got the exciting task and reviewing it and taking the whole holiday and thinking if it would be something that we would recommend to you guys as a family holiday.

Of course from our previous Butlins holiday's we would happily recommend, our last one was a term time break last March where we stayed in the Ocean hotel. We spent our days dancing in the disco lift and watching shows such as Barney & Lazy Town. This time around we're trying out the new Wave hotel which has tripled our excitement. It really does sound like the perfect hotel for me & my family what with a games room to feed the mans gaming addiction, a kindle library to feed my reading addiction as well as a Soho coffee to keep me perky after any night feeds that may crop up during our stay. Though I would be fibbing if I wasn't looking forward to the daily housekeeping and premium dining, no cleaning or washing up for Mummy this week! Leaves me more time to have fun with the boys and possibly grab some 'me' time.

We've been browsing the website for the last few weeks, purposely I think to make us even more excited. We found the before you go section which is packed with advice and tips on how to prepare for your Butlins holiday as well as downloading a entertainment guide to what is going on during your stay. I was excited by the character welcome letter which enables you to input your child's details to have a personalised letter made for them from a Butlins character. I recently did it with Oli with a letter from Billy Bear. If he would of been older, I would of got it posted to him to really add to the excitement of our forthcoming Butlins holiday.
