  • "This was our second time staying at this apartment and it was every bit as good as our previous stay."

    Immaculately clean and well equipped. In a good location, close to all the town has to offer. The property is on a very steep hill so would possibly not be suitable for anyone with mobility issues.

  • "Great location and apartment of a very high spec."

    However, it does not state anywhere that we could find about no wardrobe in the twin room which was an inconvenience. I appreciate there were coat hooks in the hallway but no hangers provided. Good job we had taken some. You may wish to put also hairdryer provided. I had contacted prior to arrival and was told if it didn't say in amenities then assume there wasn't one. Upon arrival we found a hairdryer so I really needn't have taken mine. One toilet roll per room for a week does seem a bit tight. And also we had to wait for about twenty minutes on arrival as 3 numbers given to us were not answered to obtain the key codes. Ended up calling Sykes themselves who kindly called me back with the codes. All in all great holiday, but I feel you should mention in your listing about only 1 wardrobe and hairdryer provided

    The apartment was really high spec and had all the amenities we needed and more. Lovely views and so close to the town and restaurants. Also my husband was very happy that there was Sky Sports on the TV!

  • "The apartment is very modern, and most of the facilities are excellent."

    It is well situated in Ilfracombe, being central with views over Capstone Hill. However, there were some matters that need attention, and our comments are as follows: 1. We could not get Alexa to work at all 2. The bottom oven is not working (the cleaning company did notify us about this but I suppose it should be repaired?) 3. In the double bedroom, one of the bedside table lights was not working, and it was not a broken bulb! 4. We were surprised that there was only one roll of toilet paper in each toilet, and that there was no washing up liquid supplied. In a property of this cost, this seems to be penny pinching? 5.The Nescafe Coffee machine had no instructions that we could find. There were some instructions for a completely different model, and they weren't in English anyway! 6. We were grateful for the Welcome Pack of a bottle of red wine, small bottle of milk and a pack of biscuits. 7. The directions to the apartment were good, but there were no instructions on how to enter the parking area. Finding out where the keypad was to the barrier caused us a delay as we searched for it!

  • "Wow, wow, wow!"

    This apartment is simply stunning and had everything we could have needed and more. Amazing location, close to restaurants and the harbour (but there is a very steep hill to walk back up so not great if you are not reasonably fit). Spotlessly clean, contemporary, well equipped. Direct access to the upper car park from the balcony of this apartment which was very useful. Much appreciated Welcome pack and fluffy gowns provided. We’ve already booked for next year!

  • "We were blown away by the high standard of the property!"

    There is everything you need for a relaxing stay. From beautiful fixtures and fittings, to little extras like wine, tea, coffee biscuits and even fluffy gowns. Everything has been thought of. A real comfortable home from home. Being able to park right outside is a plus too. It is on a very steep hill, but sitting in the bay window watching the world go by, makes it worth while. We would thoroughly recommend this property and will almost certainly return

  • "Amazing apartment, lovely view."

    Contemporary, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable in an ideal position within the town. It’s quiet but only metres from the seafront, Main Street and pubs. The apartment has so much space and has a very ‘high end’ feel with sleek modern appliances/furniture. Would definitely book again.

    I would however mention the hill to climb if walking from the front. Both our husbands have problems and found it difficult. But does not distract from the property. The view from the armchair is amazing.

  • "A superb property!"

    Spotlessly clean with every attention to detail. Communication was excellent, the reminders etc. were very welcome and I took the suggested items like oven gloves, dishwasher tablets etc.but they were not needed as everything was provided at the property. The beds were very comfortable and the bedding and towels very clean. Everything was of a high quality and the fluffy white dressing gowns were much appreciated. The situation of the property was ideal for the sea, the theatre, shops etc. but unfortunately Ilfracombe had not really opened for the 2022 season and many shops and facilities were still closed. I would highly recommend this property for its spaciousness and high quality fixtures and fittings. Due to storm Eunice and the expected disruption, we left the property early but the owner contacted me to say that we did not need to hurry off as their visit had been postponed until after the storm. Communication with the cleaning company was excellent and as soon as we arrived we were sent the car park barrier code and the necessary codes to enter the property. An excellent property.

  • "Arlington Villa was exceptional and occupies a great position overlooking the Bay."

    It was really good to sit in the comfy chairs in the Bay window enjoying the view. Two really good bedrooms, very comfy beds. Living space ideal for 4 people. Well equipped kitchen - I will say it did take us a couple of tries to get the hang of the oven and hob - even with instructions - but it all worked out well. The only problem we had was when we arrived there was no hot water or heating. We got in touch with the agent who called us back later and told us there had been a problem with the boiler. They were waiting for a part but there was a quick fix which we were able to carry out and from them on we had heating and hot water. Would definitely recommend Arlington Villa - very central and to top it all a fantastic firework display on New Years Eve. What more could you ask for.

  • "We loved the apartment which was maintained to the highest specifications and was very comfortable."

    Yes there was an issue with no hot water one day, due to water pressure dropping in the boiler. Coombe Cleaning Co came to help but it self resolved. Same problem the next day and I turned the pressure back up (I have same boiler at home). The cause may be building work next door. This did not detract from the stay. Great accommodation and a perfect location.

    Great great location with amazing views. Two secure large parking space are perfect. The balcony is large and well furnished. The seats in the window great for people watching. The kitchen is well equipped. Added luxuries like dressing gowns for all and Alexa are a nice touch. The utility room was great for storage and for washing our gear as the 4 adults were there for an outdoor activity based holiday . There are no negatives at all and I’m seriously picky!

  • "Location was great and the sea views excellent."

    We were lucky that the fine weather allowed us to witness great sunsets. Plenty to do but do book in advance where you can. Easy enough to get lunch out but evening meals in the best places are booked up months in advance so heed the advice about booking early. Apartment was very good, modern and clean and has two parking spaces. Felt overall it was very good though pricey. Only thing that marred our holiday was we needed a delivery and as we were out it was delivered to the patio but we never received it so was most likely taken from the patio whilst we were out. Can’t blame the accommodation providers for that though but a lesson learned.
