  • "It wasn't clear in the listing that here was a 34 step climb to a ground floor property, as this was why I booked it for my 86 year old mum who uses a walking aid."

    The instructions for the refuse was inaccurate or out of date as it was a fortnightly collection foreither the main rubbish or the recyclable which was made clear at all. But all in all it was a very clean and well maintained property.

    We are very sorry to hear that the steps were a challenge for your mother. We have always been very conscious to bring the steps to everyone’s attention. We have copied the details from the listing below. This is highlighted in red. Thank you for bringing the refuse collection change to our attention, we will get this amended. “There are 35 steps to the property from the parking area. May not be suitable for less able bodied guests. you may wish to bring a torch with you should you be arriving in the dark” Property Owner

  • "Not a place to stay if you like peace and quiet!"

    Thank you for your feedback, however we are surprised to read a comment of this nature, as we have not had one in the past. We do hope this was an isolated occurrence, please know if we had been made aware of any noise issues that we could have assisted with, we would have done so immediately. We do hope you had a lovely holiday and enjoyed all the area has to offer. Property Owner

  • "Regarding Sykes Cottages UK."

    I have given you a mark of only 5 because I was inundated with far to many unnecessary and, with regard to my break, unrelated Emails. Regarding the property, no complaints at all. The property was clean, well supported with utensils etc and sited within easy reach of facilities.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Waters Reach - lovely to arrive to, exceptionally clean and well maintained."

    The maisonette was well furnished and very well equipped -with everything being of a high quality. We were very comfortable there. It was in an ideal position in Kingsbridge for all the facilities and for access to good bus services and for us walking the section of the coast path between Plymouth and Dartmouth.

  • "The flat was very nice to stay in -thank you."

    It is a good location and use of the drive for parking was really good. There were only two of us staying here so there was plenty of room. The whole flat is very clean, comfortable and well equipped. A minor thing but there is no opportunity at the flat for recycling. I took our cans, bottles and paper to the town to recycle. Perhaps the dates for refuse collection, which is fortnightly, could be in the flat together with the alternate week's dates for recycling with the recycling box/bags there too.

    Bedrooms were a good size as was the rest of the flat.

    Really well situated for our various trips. Only comment to make was that there were no recycling boxes/bags. We had to take our glass, plastic and cans away.
