    Default No standard rooms for 2018 in Minehead

    I was looking a prices for 2018 in Minehead and I noticed that I did not see any Standard rooms available.

    Has anybody heard anything on this?

    The hotel was proposed on the site of the standard chalets, but they still haven't made a planning application.

    october half term this year is the last time you can book standard rooms, make your own conclusions, but demolition has been rumoured for a few years now, will do some digging.

    Just to add, from a source on camp it looks like the rumour is red camp will be demolished this autumn.

    Funny enough I was at Minehead last September for a mid week break and noticed all the levels being taken at the time all around surfers point. I know nothing about surveying but do know that they were using the same equipment that was being used when my neighbours Had surveyors round, as they were trying to knockdown their unoccupied house and put several new houses on there. When I spoke to someone in the booking shop on a break I had 3 months earlier I asked about the hotel as the development model in the booking shop still shows a hotel, they told me it had been put on the back burner as they still regularly sell out of standard rooms and would be silly to get rid of them. I don't think they were telling me the truth somehow. However I am back in Minehead in June so will have a poke around and see if i can find out more!!!!

    I really, really hope this doesn't happen. Red Camp has so many memories for me.
    You'll have a really wonderful time...
    At Butlin's by the sea!
