“During the past nine years or so that we have been booking with them, Helpful Holidays have always been very - well,helpful.”
Now that they appear to have been taken over by Sykes Holiday Cottages we are less than delighted. Sykes Cottages have imposed a booking fee, which Helpful Holidays never did; they have removed the Family & Friends discount, which Helpful Holidays gave us; and they have increased the rental charge without any consultation with the owners of the holiday cottage.
We have been going to the same holiday cottage for all these years - because it suits us and we like it. There is no advantage to us in having a much wider range of cottages to choose from. We have booked our holiday for next year - same weeks, same cottage - and it is costing us over £300 more than our holiday this year. We are not happy with Skyes Holiday Cottages.
