  • "We enjoyed visiting Marazion very much."

    But .... The cottage was comfortable but we had issues with the sliding door which had no key. I made four phone calls to get this fixed. The staff at Sykes were very helpful and eventually got the maintenance man to come. He managed to find a key but also had to take off an extra lock. The door badly needs replacing. The inside of the cottage was very clean but the outside of the windows badly needed cleaning. The picture on the website is very misleading. The view from the cottage is just a wall and grass! To see St Michael's Mount you have to stand up!

  • "Thank you for the welcome pack it was great."

    Property was clean and tidy and in a perfect location overlooking Marazion beach and St. Michaels mount. Only issue patio door didn't lock properly and was difficult to open and slide on its runners. Hope to visit again next year. Please remember to put parking permit in your car as I ended up with a £60 Fine lol.

  • "Super property and in the stormy Cornish weather remained cosy and warm."

    Lots more space than expected! Really appreciated the personal touches such as the Xmas tree and Cornish box for tea/biscuits and washing up. Perfect location for exploring Marazion and surrounding areas and for walking the dog on the beaches. Lovely, friendly Marazion Hotel provided a fabulous meal in the bar with the dog. Would definitely recommend in any season! Maintenance: Patio door needs checking as draughty despite latches and locks.

  • "A lovely clean property with luxury linen and white towels - hotelesque!"

    A nice welcome pack with cornish coffee, tea, biscuits, milk, and a laundry welcome pack, too. It was very much appreciated. The property has a nice aspect with views of St Michael's Mount. We were there during storm Ciaran, and it was great to hear the roar of the waves at night as the property is right next to the beach. I would say the patio doors need attention as they do not open and the lock in the front door is stiff but ok once you get the hang of it. It is a simple property with all the basics covered and we look forward to staying again.

  • "Great location."

    The property is very tired, the owner needs to spend money and update. Like someone else said tissue in the kitchen window frame. Oldest washing machine & dishwasher that we have ever seen. They looked dirty but it's the age of them. The leg fell off a chair, clearly had fallen off previously. The patio door came off its runner. All the windows and patio doors need replacing. Ants got into clothes and makeup bag. Beds old and uncomfortable. Filthy toilet brush, you can buy new ones for £1! Brown grouting in places in the bathroom. Needs a washing line, there was one down by the staion building, but it was always full. No WiFi, That is awful in this day and age. Not only paying so much money for that place, also adding money to our phone bills. As for sykes, I emailed twice asking a question. They didn't bother to respond the first time, when I chased they just sent through the property speck. Rubbish customer service. Needless to say we will not stay at the place again or ever use sykes again.

  • "The property was left very dirty for our arrival; floors dirty, cobwebs all over the light fixtures, an abundance of ants over the kitchen worktops and floors, bedroom floors and down the sides of the beds etc."

    The property itself is very tired and needs some maintenance work carried out immediately to retain future stays; the kitchen windows had kitchen roll stuffed around the edges to prevent a draft, all walls need a lick of paint, bathroom shower leaks, tv remote didn’t work as the batteries were pretty much dead, beds very uncomfortable etc. The location is incredible and unfortunately, is the only positive remark I could make about the stay. I have stayed in Sykes Cottages with my family numerous times and considering this property charges a premium for the location, we feel very let down by the standards. We will certainly consider a different provider for our next holiday after staying at Surfside.

    Welcome pack was appreciated. The Patio blind pole wouldn’t work and there were issues with some ants in the kitchen which the owners had sprayed but we had to keep an eye on and were mindful of emptying the bin daily. I imagine being so close to the beach this is difficult to control. The weather was great and we would definately return!

  • "The property was cleaner than we have seen here in the past but unfortunately we were there on a very windy week and there was so much air blowing through the ill fitting patio doors we had to put pillows in front to keep warm and stop the blinds from blowing."

    The adjusting pole for the patio blinds was not attached but broken off and standing in the corner. Consequently we were able to pull the blind across and back but were unable to rotate so had little privacy from people using the footpath in front of the doors. A pair of kitchen scissors would be very useful.It is a shame the property is not being maintained - this is such a lovely spot for a holiday.

  • "What a difference a year makes, returning to Surfside."

    We only had a few snagging issues, but these had not been addressed and many more issues found. Cleanliness was excellent last year, I think the cleaning team has changed, as this year, very basic clean. The sofas were stained and were very damp on arrival. TV and stand very dusty, dining table cover sticky. Sink, bowl and drainer not cleaned thoroughly. Bathroom had flaking ceiling and damp coming through. Around bath mouldy and tiles has orange stains in grout and floor dusty. Bedrooms were better, need proper pillows not old ones stuffed in two at a time. When striping bed, the mattress stains were awful. Fridge door panel hanging off and larger fridge/freezer needed for longer stays. We had issues last year with ants, but worse this year and needs to be addressed. All areas need to be sealed where they are getting in as health issue. We had to use ant powder, but our dog was sick. Many scuff marks and paintwork very tired. Price because of all issues was too high and paying nearly £1,000 per week is far too high. Urgent maintenance on bungalows needs to be addressed, as others who had returned again felt upset and disappointed with properties. A very good maintenance person should be employed urgently to fix, mend and pay attention to every detail and upgrade all properties. The gardens are maintained very well. The owners have such an amazing site and location and need to return them back to excellent order. Sykes your contact and information before, during and after was great. You may need to go and visit properties to provide a checklist for cleaning team to follow and prepare lists of jobs to be carried out, for owners to deal with.

  • "Property was very clean and overall comfortable for a base and there is plenty of parking."

    Welcome starter pack is great. Property could be easily and quickly improved with a general update. Beds are really uncomfortable but we remembered this from our previous stays so took our own pillows which helped. Patio door was stiff and hard to open / close but was fixed 1 day before we left. Lack of wifi is not really acceptable and same with lack of recycling bins. Location is great hence this was our 3rd stay, however with St Michael's Mount now charging to go across and no longer allowing dogs, we will likely base elsewhere next time we visit Cornwall.
