  • "It was how it said it would be."

    Plenty of room for three adults but could easily do the six. The one fault we all said was the toilet seat was too small so kept moving but that being said have already booked to go back next year

  • "The arm chairs are uncomfortable for some people."

    We have been several times and the location makes it a perfect place, ok no WiFi but that is no real problem if you have a mobile hub. We missed the gardener, hope he is OK.

  • "Excellent location right next to the beach."

    Property was well equipped but in need of a refresh and deep clean. Unfortunately we also couldn’t get the heating to work, having stayed in other properties on the complex previously I don’t think it was us and it was in fact faulty. Luckily we had hot water and it wasn’t a super cold week. There were 2 portable heaters but only one worked. This isn’t the first time we have been disappointed with a Sykes property and whilst we have already booked one in June I doubt we will be using them again. Such a shame as location is fabulous and with some care could be a great property.

  • "Booking was for me & my husband & dogs over the christmas period & 2 friends were to arrive boxing day."

    Initial impression was postive albeit the property looked a little dated .But it was really cleaned well . There are lots of kitchen equipment such has washer,dishwasher microwave etc . Cooker did the job really well ( cooked christmas dinner) The beds were comfortable However 3 bedrooms large twin bedded room ,moderate double ( we used) and a small double which no one could use due to the windows which let in the wind & cold that room even with radiator on was freezing cold & the blind blew up & down . The double windows were the same & we kept the blinds down & large object were placed in window sill in effort to block the wind & cold . The patio door leaked rain water & flooded the floor ( we used towels to soak it up as we had no mop or anything else ) Bathroom was in need of a renovation & I wouldnt use the shower as it looked grungy ( black stains on grout & more sealant than should be needed around outside just looked a mess .Shower reported to be powerful . Nice size bathroom tho with separate shower cubicle & bath ,toilet, sink . The plastic toilet brush holder was broken & there were "bits " left in it . Heating was working well & hot water ( ran out once mid bath) however the windows were not fit for purpose . We had storm Garret during our stay which made the lack of effect windows & doors more evident . When I rang sykes to complain I was more or less accused of leaving it too late to report the issues & was only after compensation!! Well the small double problems on came to light when the rest of the guest arrived & room found to very cold & draughty & unusable . I guess summertime not all is evident . Did I think it was worth the hyped up amount of money we paid for over Christmas ,certainly not ,and to be freezing cold in some rooms & unable to use one of the bedrooms No I felt robbed & angry it spoilt our stay

    Everything you could wish for is either in walking distance or a short drive away. The facilities was superb as usual The only down side we found as I had my grandchildren with me and the weather could of been better was no WiFi. A DVD player with no dvds, could of been put in the brochure, They found a few ants which was dealt with and last but not really important the windows could of done with a clean thanks again

    The only thing this time is that the oven didn't work properly, when we turned it on smoke filled the room so we were unable to use it, so we did have to throw some food away. The bathroom is a great size compared to the size of the shower being really small. An over the bath shower would be better.

    We had a fantastic holiday here, very spacious three good sized bedrooms there everything in the bungalow you could want for, washer, dishwasher. Bathroom with both a bath & shower. The view of st Michael mount from lodge are beautiful and a lovely walk down to there, take a torch for on a night if you walk into Marazion as road is very dark and lovely walk in day. Dogs welcome but take a hook to put in garden as they are communal our Chester loved it! The cafe just as you turned in was lovely to we had breakfast baguette very good.

  • "We have stayed in this property every Easter for about 10 years, we are committed to return for various reasons, not because of the property itself, although the location is stunning."

    Generally speaking this bungalow has enormous potential, but is let down by the poor quality of everything within in, furniture, lighting (every lamp wobbles) flooring (this is all scratched and gappy) kitchen utensils, and bedding. In addition to this the windows have absolutely no insulation at all and needed to be blocked with pillows in the bedrooms, to stop the draughts coming through them. The site of the bungalows is maintained to a beautiful standard, full credit goes to the gardener who we saw working very hard most days. I hope this is a useful review, though after ten years of returning we have lost hope that they will ever be refurbished to the standard the price of renting it commands. Yours Sincerely, Mrs Smith.

  • "This was our second visit this time for 2 weeks."

    Last year we had problems with ants invading the property both inside and out and noisy unruly children from the other properties invading our personal space. This year although we received an e mail saying it would be sorted it was much worse. Ants in the kitchen in our food on the floor and we couldnt use the picnic bench outside because they were all over it. We took ant traps with us and had to purchase in all 5 ant powders and 2 sprays still they came. We left a day early because had had enough.. Not just the ants but once again next door seemed to be visiting with family in another of the bungalow. Allowed their childrent o run arounf our bungalow and thud and scream on a morning waking us up. Plus they had the children from further up constantly running past. Playing football on the grass and the other side of us riding on the grass o their bikes. We had no peace what with one thing and another. The larger of the 2 beds in the front bedroom needsa mattress change. I was crippled with pain every morning. The matress slopes from one side to next the left slope is rock hard and the right the springs are sticking in plus a hard ridge where the bases dont meet and leave a gap.The price was almost double what we we paid last year and certainly not worth the money. The cleaners need to use domestos to clean the toilet it was badly stained and not very nice plus the matress cover on my bed was stained in parts. The whole place needs pest control in to rid the ants which is a health risk. More privacy signs in place and no football or cycle riding on the grass especially in the area of the patio (which we were unable to sit at because of ants) and perimiter of bungalow itself. Adults and kids walking and cycling past staring in the windows. Came home day early because we had enough wont be rebooking or recommending and certainly not value for the money they are now asking. Very dissapointed after last year and owner saying problem would be sorted for us this time.

    ! the noise was horrendous as the property is a stones throw away from the train line and the trains pass every 15mins. The property itself was infested with ants, found a pair of Knickers left on the radiator and a pair of socks left in the drawer. someone had also left an item of clothing behind the bed! The patio doors would not lock/open correctly and the blinds were broke and could not shut them. We contacted Sykes for and offered to pay for an upgrade after night 1 who were useless, no help at all and said the contract was with the property owner not them, we left after 4 days and came home to wales! The people in the property next door also experienced issues and left early also. having used Sykes on a number of previous occasions i was really disappointed with the service i received and felt left out to dry. i would avoid this property at all costs, and i would think twice about booking with Sykes again, very disappointed, I would like a call from someone to discuss further and my email were ignored when at the property.

  • "Beautiful bungalow well situated and clean and comfortable."

    we had a problem with an infestation of ants . The patio door doesnt close completely and they had come through the gap overnight so living area was overrun with them also smaller of the double bedroom coming i from hole in wall where it looks like wardrobe has been removed. We had to use the ant spray constantly which you had left under sink so you were obviously aware. Our privacy was invaded by the 4 children staying opposite in station cottage who thought they had a right to run around screaming down the passage way between our bungalow and the one next door and play on the grassy area in front of our outside picnic bench. They were asked politely to stop doing it so it was a bit stressful having to deal with that. However i have to say your bungalow is beautiful and myself being disabled found it very easy to move about and comfortable. My son daughter in law and my 2 grandchildren loved how close we were to the sea the comfort inside and the outside area. We would like to return again but for 2 weeks next time.

    Thank you for taking the time t6o complete your feedback, we are sorry to hear of the disruption caused to you by a neighboring property, had we been made aware we would have tried to help resolve this issue for you. However we were pleased this did not spoil your visit to Sea Shore and we are so pleased you found maneuvering around the property easily. Property Owner

    The beach is just over the wall in the garden area. Penzance is around 5-10 mins drive depending on traffic. A Morrisons is just down the road as well for easy access to shopping. The stay comes with a small fridge, an oven with electric hob, a dishwasher and washing machine. Very handy if your planning on making your own meals instead of eating out (though if you're planning to eat out in Marazion make sure you book in advance as it gets very busy and there aren't a huge choice of restaurants). All pots, pans, plates and cutlery are provided. Though the chopping knife in our accomodation was very blunt. Unfortunately there is no WIFI but there is a TV, so we brought a laptop with HDMI cable and watched downloaded films and DVD's through the TV that way. You can get an open top bus from just outside the entrance which can take you on a circular tour of Cornwall, over to St Ives, then Lands End and back around to here. Hopping on and off whenever. Overall a great stay! I highly recommend.

    The cottage was very basic and there was a few maintenance problems but not worth complaining about. (Loose floor covering, broken tile in bathroom, blind at sliding door could be replaced as it does not work properly) Mattresses could be upgraded. 2 of the rooms a bit of a squeeze but because we have small children it did not matter. Our toaster tripped the power but was replaced the same day with a new one. We had a wonderful stay and loved the location. The gardens were well maintained. So convenient to get to Marazion, coastal path to cycle to Penzance, coffee shop right in front of the house, where you can hire paddle boards, kites for kite surfing and canoes- fabulousness beach. It was very busy with kite and wind surfers. It felt like a nice ‘hub’ but not over crowded. Definitely a place to stay if you like a long walk along the beach.

I found the lady who came to clean the bungalows very approachable and helpful, certainly an asset to the business. We would certainly stay here again. With regard to facilities, we would have liked the use of a slow cooker, a full set of saucepans( boiling an egg in a very large pan isn't great) a larger waste bin (too small for six people) and two teaclothes, one for each week that we stayed. We only found instructions to the electric fire and the oven, but there was nothing for the microwave, the dishwasher, the washer or how to work the heating should there be a need.
