Butlins’ new £20 million Ocean Hotel can now be booked by British travel agents.

The property at the Bognor Regis resort is not scheduled to open until late August.

However, agents can start making bookings already and can choose from between 200 rooms, 75% of which have balconies overlooking the sea or the South Downs.

The hotel also has a spa, landscaped gardens and a family restaurant and bar while rooms are available to sleep two, four or five.

The Ocean Hotel comes following the opening of the Butlins Shoreline Hotel in 2005 and is part of an ongoing £150 million investment in all three of Butlins’ resorts over the last five years.

For more information on the property see the Butlins 2009 second edition brochure which is being sent to travel agents this month.
