  • "Reception feedback Reception on site - not pleasant and not willing to help."

    I have been challenged for face covering despite being exempt and wearing bracelet but the receptionist who did not wear the face mask herself. On the question why am I being challenged she said "my boss told me to do so". When Ive asked either she understand the law and either she is not allowed to ask me this question - she didnt bother. When Ive asked why she is not wearing one, she said "my boss told me not to wear one as Im behind the window" - what a joke. Phones were down with no information to customers at all. It was the hottest week in the UK but we were unable to use outside swimming pool because some filter got broken. absolute joke to dont have a critical spares on side in case of any issues. The reception seemed not bothered at all and only displayed the notice that swimming pool is out of order without any indication how long this will take. Nobody on arrival. Unable to find property we booked. Went to pub to ask the question and yet rude woman asked me to leave because she is not reception and she could help if I tell her where do I stay (haha) which I didnt know from Sykes booking. Left and avoided the place. Property - owner feedfback Property itself great fit for our family. Very well equipped home. The frying pans were out of use but after communicating with the owner, I had replacement within hour (yes! within an hour). Owner very amazingly supportive, directed me to the property as Sykes booking website has failed to provide clear details how to find the property. Paul - the maintenance guy very friendly, came and resolved heating issue for me. He meant to come every day to clean the hot tub but he has not arrived in last 2 days - pity. Location amazing, quiet, green in the middle of nowhere really but with 25min drive to the beach. Local towns lovely (Looe charming). It was amazing stay! Id recommend 100%.And owner first class as I said - very supportive! Dont bother with reception and pub - you dont need them to have a lovely holiday !!

    Thank you for taking the time to complete the feed back. We were sorry to hear that reception on site were not willing to help. We normally get excellent reports regarding reception and hope this is a one off incident. We were glad to her our handy man Tom was able to help so quickly in sourcing your a new set of pans.

  • "Eden Valley Lodge was perfect for us, much bigger than expected, every home comfort and very clean."

    Perfect location for travelling / exploring Devon and Cornwall. Pub on site was great for us for a cheeky drink and food is lovely! We needed some help with the hottub and Kevin was over in no time at all and couldn’t do enough to ensure our stay wasn’t affected. Would definitely return and recommend

  • "The house was one of the most well-stocked houses I have stayed in and overall we had a fantastic stay."

    Wine and milk were left for our arrival and the hot tub was ready. There was a slight issue with the smell of damp in the downstairs bedrooms but nothing could be seen. It would also have been useful if the instructions re the shower cutting off the heating could have been more prominent. Despite these small issues, we had a really great time and i would certainly think of booking through Sykes again. When booking the house staff were very helpful in answering questions and i couldn't fault the customer service before and after booking. The email reminders and easy access to my account were great.

  • "Seems silly in the summer season the outdoor pool closes 5pm dead on, no flexibility considering the outdoor temperature Shop also closed 5pm."

    . Bar opened midweek a holiday complex with residents, surely open all day.

  • "Info booklet could be updated."

    My Dad was taken ill one evening and I spent 10 minutes going around in circles trying to get through to an out of ours GP. The last number in the book that I called told me to phone 111 which was what I should have done in the first instance. The bar at the Manor was lovely and we were made very welcome on all occasions.

    The house is equipped with everything that you need. Most stores are within driving distance. The owners of the house were quick to resolve issues that we met. Would definitely stay here again.

    We were a group of 6-wasn’t enough mugs for all of us. Enough of other dishes and cutlery. One very small shower. Do have a bath but not allowed to use the shower attached to it as water may leak. Tiny pool in complex

  • "I have complained twice now with no real recourse or solution."

    I complained about the cleanliness of the lodge we stayed in on both occasions and also the poor maintenance of the lodge. In all fairness the app and website of Sykes was very easy to use but that is just about all I can say that is positive. The park was advertised as having entertainment but there was only 2 activities on the whole week we stayed. We complained to the housekeeper and maintenance who appeared to be the same person about cleanliness and a broken tap, neither were very well resolved. Overall it just put a dampener on what would have been a lovely week. It is a shame but this privately owned lodge has probably put us off using Sykes again..

An ideal location for a holiday or short well-deserved break at any time of year.

About the location


Tavistock 5 miles; Plymouth 18 miles.

The small rural village of Gunnislake lies on the steeply wooded banks of the River Tamar. It has village pubs and a small selection of shops. Notably, the village sits at one end of the scenic Tamar Valley Railway - with regular services along the river bank to Plymouth. The area is perfect for exploring Dartmoor, the south and north coast beaches and the attractions of Cornwall’s far west. Close to hand, the Dartmoor town of Tavistock with its pannier market, pubs and restaurants is a must, as well as the popular fishing village of Calstock, renowned for its crafts and festivals, while the Donkey Sanctuary and Cotehele House and Gardens (NT) are just 10 minutes away. Enjoy a round of golf at St Mellion (8 miles), explore the restored Victorian mining village at Morwellham Quay (4 miles), search for otters and deer along the Tamar Valley footpath, visit the National Trust owned Lydford Gorge, or take a trip to the beach and picturesque harbour at Looe (25 miles) - there’s something for everyone. For something really different, why not ride the scenic Tamar Valley Railway into Plymouth and spend the day in the fabulous Marine Aquarium or strolling the historic Plymouth Hoe?
