  • "We enjoyed our stay."

    Good location for us. The property was comfortable. A few items require a bit maintenance. The hotel took a booking for use of the swimming pool. It wasn't as expected: not evidently heated and there dead amphibians and worms in the pool... (Maybe it should be advertised as summer use only, as there appeared to be lack of maintenance?)

  • "Potential to be great but let down by the cleaning, all rooms have cobwebs etc around coving/ceilings and downstairs smelt very musty, facilities were good with an additional downstairs bathroom,kitchen small but ok but do need to somehow get an ice box or freezer, living room feels cluttered with all the varying furniture, but as said could be great if few issues resolved."

  • "A nice little house."

    We felt that there could have been more comfortable seating in the lounge as we were a group of 4 adults. Also there was no cheese grater or a choppping/bread board. Alot of the mugs had tea stains. Could do with sterilising and there were alot of cobwebs around the property so cleaning could have been better. Overall we enjoyed our stay. A lovely little spot.

  • "We couldn't work the oven or the microwave."

    We eat out on Saturday night so we didn't know. When I rang for help on Sunday, I spoke to a lady on the phone who was very apologetic but couldn't help as the office was closed. On Monday, a very nice man called Mark came around and showed me how they worked. Apparently he is on call 24/7. The cottage was more rural than we expected. We had wonderful weather and we really enjoyed Lyme Regis

    We're sorry to hear that you had an issue working the oven and that this wasn't passed onto our local our of hours maintenance team. We hope this didn't spoil your stay. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "War alles wunderbar!"

    Schöner Platz und viel Grün rundum, sehr erholsam. Einzig der defekte Toaster hat uns Schreckminuten beschert, als der Feueralarm wegen der Rauchentwicklung losging ;-)

  • "Thank you for the welcome pack - much appreciated."

    House was in a good spot, perfectly placed for our Coast Path walking. It was just the right size for three sisters, and easy to warm up. Kitchen better equipped than some larger houses we've stayed in. Bus stop on the road right outside the complex was really useful. When we had an issue with finding the light switch (!) the Sykes out-of-hours respondent was super helpful - thanks. A couple of things would make it even more comfortable: There's a strong smell of dog, which must be fairly constant given the Febreze provided. If you got rid of the throws on the sofas, it would help a lot. We didn't use the bigger sofa at all as the smell was so strong. The mattress on the small double is the squeakiest I've ever encountered. A folder of info about the house itself - eg. how the cooker, microwave etc work, would be more useful than the Lyme Bay generic folder. In fact, we were confused to find that the house is managed by LB Hols when we'd booked via Sykes. I'm sure there's a good reason, but it would be good to be told. Thanks.

  • "Whilst the location was lovely and we enjoyed the deer in the garden it was not a particularly comfortable experience."

    The furniture downstairs and throws on them left a lot to be desired. The second double bed was also uncomfortable and we couldn't open the wardrobe door. I feel there were too many "things" downstairs that also made the space look cluttered. Apart from this our stay was a good one in a wonderful area that we enjoyed exploring. Thank you Jayne and Martin

  • "This was a lovely quiet cottage and kept very well."

    My husband was ill the whole week we were there and therefore we were in it much more than we would have been and found it very peaceful with everything we needed - perhaps minus freezer, but the beds were very comfy (if noisy/squeaky on the one double bed!) We wouldn't hesitate to return or to recommend it to anyone else.
