  • "This property is in a good location in central Malvern but anyone booking needs to appreciate the accommodation is very basic , situated under the main house."

    I could perhaps ( slightly generously ) describe it as ‘ rustic ‘

  • "Grim, cold and shabby."

    Falls far short of the description.We were very disappointed with the overall standard so much that we could not stay and drove back home the same day. In our opinion you should review your inspection standards.

    I am very disappointed with these comments, it is factually incorrect .just look at the review of 26 th March exactly opposite and giving everything a perfect score .Comfort and facilities given a very negative mark how could they if they didn’t even stay for an hour . We had a cleaner there fir over two hours before their arrival. We have all the equipment and furniture needed . I did send them a message before arrival welcoming them I explained that I am available 24 seven and if there is any issue they should contact me I actually live above the flat they did not contact me at all or tried to speak to me.

  • "On the plus side the apartment is spacious and really well located near to local amenities, restaurants, theatre, park, and the famous hills."

    However, it needs a deep clean and the apartment is damp, really damp it gets into your clothes, the bed sheets feel damp at night in the mornings there are trickles of water running down parts of the paintwork. All the air fresheners in the world don't help. I understand that covid probably means that there is less money available but this property falls well, well short of what we have experienced in past bookings with Sykes. In fact I would say that if I ever experience another property such as this I would never ever use Sykes again. Your quality control need to be improved.

  • "This is the worst place I have ever stayed."

    Grim, grubby and above all very very damp. So damp the sheets felt damp when getting into bed. The second bedroom is not fit for purpose and the whole flat needed a good clean. There were long black hairs all over the bathroom floor ugh disgusting. Filthy place mats for the table and crumbs and coffee stains on the table when we arrived. Your details describe it as immaculately presented and nothing could be further from the truth. I would go so far as to say it is not fit for habitation.

    Firstly she did not once contacted me with any issues she had surely one would inform the owner, if things were as she says I would have, after all I live above the flat. I welcomed them myself showed them to the flat told them to contact me if there was any issues, they never once did. Now as regard to reference to the second bedroom it clearly states that this is a small double with a small double bed, I believe originally she booked for two then decided to bring her sister and changed the booking to 4 which is fine but the description is very accurate small double. I do not accept a single of these comments, hair I can't possibly comment as I don't know but again they should have mentioned it when they arrived and I would have had it cleaned for them. We have a professional firm of cleaners who come and clean the flat. Property Owner

  • "Garden View is a very spacious property and the kitchen was very well equipped."

    It was very clean. We had not visited Malvern before and the property was in a great location, with views of the Malvern Hills, a Waitrose within a few minutes walk, and several very good pubs (notably the Nags Head and the Great Malvern Hotel) close by. We were able to go for plenty of walks in the hills without taking the car or following a short drive. The property itself had good off-road parking and the owners, although socially distancing, were very welcoming. We would love to return.

  • "For us, location is a prime reason for picking holiday accommodation, so this property takes some beating."

    Waitrose is a 5 minute walk and there are 3 really good pubs also within a 5 minute walk. Add to that that you can be in the hills within 15 minutes from your door. We did 3 long walks from the doorstep without needing to take out the car, which is an important asset for us. The property is also roomy, the kitchen adequately equipped and the shower works well. With the heating on (included in the price) we were never cold. The lounge, which you tend to spend most time in, is a comfortable and sunny aspect. The property does, however, suffer from being a little on the sad side. It could really do with renovating if it were to compete with classier and more expensive properties. There is an issue with damp and condensation and if this is something that would detract from your holiday, then this property is perhaps avoided

  • "It is advertised as having a step into property, it doesn't say there are steep steps from the car parking place to Garden View, it's possible to avoid the steps by walking round the outside of the property which isn't known about initially, making it very difficult on arrival."

    Inside the property there are glass topped coffee tables which could be a problem with younger children.

  • "Great base for exploring the Malvern Hills."

    Easy short walk into the centre of town, Malvern theatres, Malvern Priory and a supermarket right around the corner. A bit of a steep 15 min climb up from Great Malvern station with luggage but easy going back downhill! It would have been nice to have had a washing machine and clothes line in the spacious garden, rather than a dishwasher which we did not use.

  • "The owner of the Garden View flat was so welcoming and eager to help, it was lovely."

    The flat had everything you could wish for and I found it very comfortable and it is a brilliant location to visit the area. I think the only downside concerned my mother, who is 93. This is not a criticism of the flat in any way, but an observation that future visitors might want to take into account. The floors, in places, are worn brick, with rugs. This made her a little hesitant to walk around on her own, but since she often needs my help now anyway, it made no difference to our enjoyment. However, I probably wouldn't book this flat again if she was with me due to this aspect. It was easy to get to the flat along the flat garden path in the front of the property but does have a couple of steps into the front room. Again, this did not concern us as my mother can still manage some steps with help, but it may not be suitable for someone who was coming alone and had mobility problems. Please pass my thanks on to the owner and wish them well with their Sykes cottage venture. As I say, the comment above is not intended in any way as a criticism but just as a consideration if anyone with mobility problems was coming alone.

    We were made extremely welcome by the owner who was very friendly and helpful both beforehand and during our stay, nothing was too much trouble. The flat was lovely, very warm, comfortable and spacious, beautifully decorated and well equipped. We felt rested and relaxed after staying there. The location was most convenient, it was within walking distance of the theatre and the park, Malvern Priory and the local shops and restaurants. All in all, an excellent base for a holiday in Malvern.

About the location


Ledbury 7 miles; Worcester 10 miles; Hereford 23 miles.

The beautiful Worcestershire town of Malvern dates back to the Bronze Age and is situated on the eastern side of the dramatic Malvern Hills. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Malvern Hills form a 9-mile range of ancient rock, which offers 100 miles of footpaths and bridleways with natural springs and long distance views in all directions. The town holds antiques fairs, WI country markets, farmers’ markets and many auctions throughout the year, as well as the Great Malvern Food Festival in June. Malvern has individual shops, cafes, galleries, restaurants, a luxurious spa and it’s own micro brewery. It is also just a short drive from the Three Counties Showground which hosts regular events most notably RHS Malvern (May), The Royal Three Counties Show (June) and the Malvern Autumn Show (September). The town is the home of the Morgan car which makes this area popular with motoring enthusiasts. The Malvern Theatre welcomes productions from the West End and the Royal Shakespeare Company. The more energetic can try many outdoor activities including high ropes, climbing and abseiling. Fishing and river cruises are available nearby and there are National Trust properties, gardens and vineyards to visit in the area. The picturesque Forest of Dean with its range of attractions is only 30 miles away, and the cathedral city of Worcester offering modern amenities is a 20 minute drive away.
