“We are happy with Sykes cottages , but when we got to the cottage we found that the standard of cleanliness was very poor.”
It looked like that it had not been cleaned since the last people had been there. The toilet had hair and dirt at the back of it. The washing machine had a pair of pants left in it. The cooker had to be cleaned before we could use it. The shower needed a good clean and made a very loud noise when in use. martyn Cooper
