  • "The property was OK overall."

    The kitchen appliances were all to a good standard. However, the double mattress in the main bedroom was very soft and bouncy with a sag around the middle. It was hard to find a comfortable sleeping position and each morning I woke with a stiff back. I tried the single beds to see if they were any better but they were also very soft. They did sag a bit less though. Also, the heated towel rail in the shower room wasn't working so all towels needed to be dried on the towel rail in the other bathroom or on the clothes horse. The balcony area was quite dirty and shabby. We tried to clean it up a bit but it didn't look any better. I don't think the choice of slate floor tiling helps but think it may just be in an unfortunate position that attracts bits of leaves and other wind-borne rubbish.

  • "Our first first night was spoilt by water pouring through the ceiling from the flat above as we prepared for bed."

    Though not Sykes' or the owners fault it would have been nice to have received an apology or compensatory bottle of wine. Interestingly messages were left on my home phone 200 miles away! Maybe Sykes thought I could access my messages from home whilst away. The only apology came from the rep next day who called on us to explain how the problem would be fixed - she was very pleasant.

  • "The quality of the bedding, towels and pots/pans/glasses was brilliant."

    The only thing that let the apartment down was the state of the balcony. Not sure whose responsibility it is to maintain the pots, but there are weeds growing over a foot high in them. The picture shows a rather nice wooden bench and table, which has now been replaced with cheap plastic chairs. The tv isn't really big enough if there were 4 people using the apartment, I would get a bigger one and mount it on the wall, but that's only my suggestion. Overall everything was spotlessly clean and the service we received from Coast and Country was excellent.

  • "Lovely flat, nice and comfortable."

    The kitchen and bathroom have been well done. The main bedroom is a very good size. The flat is well situated for everything in Dartmouth and comes with a much needed car parking space. A note for people with disabilities or limited mobility, although this flat is on the ground floor, there are 9 steps up to the main front door, so access will be via the garage, as this has a slope and lift to get to the flat. There is also a small step out onto the balcony which may benefit by having a ramp fitted for those with restricted mobility. We would recommend this flat as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will happily book it again

    ONE car only allowed to park underground, (I'm informed there have been occasions of two cars arriving. 2. Renter must park in the parking bay numbered the SAME as the flat. Failure to make this ABSOLUTELY clear on the booking form is causing a lot of anger amongst permanent residents. 3. A laminated notice IN the rental is TOO late

  • "There were chipped and stained mugs, marked plates and crazed crockery."

    The crockery drawer didn't shut properly. The springs in one of the sofas seemed to have gone. There was inferior plastic mismatched furniture on the balcony - the table wasn't stable enough to eat up. The fitted sheet on the main bed was old and not big enough as it kept slipping off the mattress. The bedding was tired and one pillow cover was sweat marked. Another pillowcase has black marks on it. The inside of the shower tray in the ensuite had black mould on it. There was dust and cobwebs above the wall cabinet in the ensuite. The whole flat was 'tired' and certainly not up to the standard expected from the description and absolutely did not reflect the rental price.

    Thank you to the staff in the office, they couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. Just one little thing that would help is to provide black out curtains in the bedrooms, as woken every day between 4/5am when the sun started to rise.

  • "It was lovely to stay here again after holiday was postponed."

    Cannot fault Coast & Country Cotts. for their hard work to ensure we had a safe stay. Apartment very clean and Covid safe. I suggest new mattress on beds as they are lumpy and the large sofa needs to be replaced as you sink right in! Also, the carpet in the master bedroom has a big stain. But we had a lovely stay and hope to return in the future.

  • "The standard of cleanliness of the property was very disappointing."

    The every day cleaning was fine e.g. work surfaces in the kitchen but the accommodation is desperately in need of a deep clean - there was a thick layer of dust in the corner of the armchair and behind the bedside tables. There were stains all over the bedroom carpet and the shower heads were thick with grime. The mattresses, pillows, cushions and duvet covers were extremely aged and in dire need of replacing.

  • "Excellent property we will return."

    Not your problem but access to the garage is a problem with people parking in the road

    Thank you for taking time to leave some feedback. We are glad that you had such an enjoyable stay. In relation to car park access, unfortunately, there are two car parking spaces along the access road to the garage. This does make it a little harder to get down the road but with care it is manageable. We look forward to welcoming you back soon! Property Owner

    While there we went to the office wishing to extend our stay and were very well looked after. In the event we had to return home early and the girls in the office were very helpful and efficient. We were very well looked after financially as well. Please pass on our thanks to the owner of No. 12 for his very kind gesture. Many thanks for all the help we received in making our holiday so enjoyable.

  • "A lovely apartment with the bonus of a lift and underground parking."

    The kitchen area was well equipped with all the cooking essentials for a self catering holiday. The crockery could be replaced with a new modern set matching the quality of the kitchen itself. The duvet in the main bedroom needs replacing as the filling has disintegrated and the outside cover appeared to be stiff - like sleeping in a 'paper bag'. All in all we had a lovely time, very convenient to the town, tours and facilities and the weather could not have been better.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are happy to hear that you had a lovely stay in Dartmouth. We will pass you comments on to the owner and get these items replaced as soon as possible. Property Owner

  • "The apartment was well furnished and equipped."

    However, it was beginning to look jaded and areas required redecoration. Whilst not needing TV, the advertised Sky and TV system was antiquated providing much less than a modern Freeview TV and was therefore misleading in the property advertisement. Whilst no fault of the owner or Sykes Cottages, there was repeated interference by one of the full time property residents (who claimed to be the caretaker!) when parking or moving cars in the underground garage. He approached myself and family members on a number of occasions demanding information on my rental arrangements and was eventually told to stay away from each of us. A less tolerant person may have reacted differently toward him. He should be firmly advised that as renters the car space is for their or their family members use and does not require either his permission or approval. Dartmouth house is well situated and I would be happy to recommend overall.

  • "Great apartment, perfectly placed for exploring Dartmouth."

    The Coat & Country office is right opposite the front door, which makes key collection simple, and the secure underground parking was a real bonus. The beds were comfortable and there's ample equipment for a home away from home. OK, it's showing its age just a little and some DIY is needed to get it right into shape, but...no major issues and it's very clean. It isn't the quitest place - there's some noise from the road nearby, and you're aware of some noise from other apartments - but it wasn't a major problem and didn't affect our enjoyment. We'd book again.

    The property was clean but a little tired, we found the mattress very soft and uncomfortable and there was no mattress cover on the bed although there was on the single bed. Also the sofas were very soft and the crockery was mis-matched. Saying that we did have a good time and we thank the pleasant staff we met.

  • "This is a good appartment but with nine out of eighteen appartments as holiday lets in the complex owners will have to start asking, ‘ what makes my appartment stand out from the others’?"

    Recent feedback sights the main bed as soft, I would concur, generally found it uncomfortable, others may not however. Better quality kitchen utensils might be considered. Wi If is now available to a good standard. Again there have been comments about the discrepancy between brochure and actual furniture on the patio. It is the owners right to put what ever furniture he/she wishes on the patio, but the misrepresentation in the brochure and web site is responsibility of Coast and Country. With prices suggesting a 20% increase in 2020, I repeat ‘ what will make this appartment stand out from the rest’?

    Parking was good underground and the lift made life easy with our luggage. The double bed was uncomfortable and could do with a topper being put on or a new mattress.

    The property is conveniently situated in the heart of Dartmouth and with secure parking.

    Close to the centre of Dartmouth/amenities with a M&S close by. The accommodation was both clean and spacious with secure gated parking and lift to all floors. It had a lovely balcony, bathroom and en-suite. Our only observation was that the TV could have been a larger and the noise from the main road in the main lounge could be a little distracting in high season. The balcony door really needs to be replaced with a new double glazed UPVC unit.

About the location

DARTMOUTH

Totnes 12 miles.

Dartmouth lies on the banks of the beautiful River Dart estuary in the popular and picturesque South Hams area of South Devon. Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to the coast, Dartmouth is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Devon. It offers a stunning waterfront, ancient narrow streets lined with boutique shops, restaurants and art galleries plus many local events such as the annual Dart Music Festival and the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta, along with the Dartmouth Food Festival held every October. There are many interesting cycling and walking routes around Dartmouth, including the South West Coast Path, the Dart Valley Trail and plenty of quiet country lanes. A trip on the Dartmouth Steam Railway through picturesque countryside to Paignton is a must, and so is a boat trip across to Kingswear and on to Brixham, a pretty little harbour town. For those seeking some beach activities, there is a wide choice in the South Hams area such as Blue Flag Award winner Blackpool Sands, and Slapton Sands, both extremely popular and just a stone's throw from Dartmouth. A relaxing location in South Devon.
