  • "Another wonderful holiday at Clements Cottage."

    A clean and comfortable home from home in a fantastic location. Already booked for next year. Highly recommended.

  • "Lovely property close too harbour but did not realise it had a very busy road outside very noisy from the front room also the front bedroom ."

    We had a problem with heating in the beginning and made contact with a person through a phone number ( temperature was to cold ) was sorted the same day. Also we found the cooker a challenge to work but got there in the end. The sink plug in the bathroom lets water escape ( to small for the hole ) and also the toilet seat is becoming loose. There were a few things left there for us to make use of a nice thought.Would not book again because of the busy road .

    The heating is set automatically at 19C for guest arrivals. The central heating controller is located on the wall in the lounge and can be easily adjusted by guests. Instructions for use of the cooker and central heating are available in the guest information folder provided. Thank you for the information about the sink plug and toilet seat, these will be rectified. Property Owner

  • "The accomodation is in a perfect position to explore everything the English Riviera has to offer."

    It's a great size too with the little garden being an added bonus. It's well lived in and dog friendly which suited us but if you're overly fussy about decor you might be a little critical of its traditional design. Overall perfect for us

  • "Nice central location."

    pleasant environment inside. odd diy arrangement with bathroom doors. outside drains blocked with previous people's waste. outside patio & fixtures shabby. bedroom furniture ill fitting, drawers/ cupboards sticking when opening - previous people's litter found in the house. house info wasn't up to date - refuse collection day was wrong overall the place felt slightly neglected we have stayed in many lovely holiday places over the years, but this wasn't one of them. I expected much better standard for a premium priced high holiday season let.

    Thank you for your feedback. The bathroom has 2 doors according to the building regulations in operation when it was fitted. We are looking at updating it when the cottage is vacant during the winter. The cleaners do not clean the outside yard but will speak to them about anything that was missed inside. We have had no other complaints about the bedroom furniture sticking but will look at it when we are able to gain access. We were not informed about the bin day changing but will update the information folder when we visit. We do hope you enjoyed your stay otherwise. Property Owner

    .which had dropped a bit..hence gate did not lock.Made us a bit anxious as inventory said there were outdoor seat pads in unlocked shed and they were missing.Always makes me feel owner will think we took them.Silly l know..but can't help it.Cottage very comfortable and extra touches (tea towel washing up liquid sponges and extra toilet rolls )were much appreciated.

  • "Clements cottage is in a great location one minute from the harbour and 3 or 4 good places to eat out."

    The only issue may be the lack of parking but we bought an eight day permit from the torbay council website which covers all of the car parks in the area including the harbour car park two minutes walk away. The cottage itself was spotlessly clean and very comfortable, we felt the living room seating could have done with an update but was still comfortable. A couple of tips from us, buy a car park pass and park in the harbour car park, use the ferries from the harbour to visit Torquay and Brixham, use the steam train from paignton to visit Dartmouth, and have a meal at the harbour inn or curious crab both only 2 minutes walk away and both have great views from their outside terraces

  • "This property was in an ideal location."

    But unfortunately the cottage was filthy! I didn’t expect to go on holiday to be cleaning and vacuuming on arrival! I understand that you give guidelines for the COVID-19 but who is checking that these are being adhered to? I expected an immaculately clean house with what is going on at the moment. Very disappointed, the cleaner needs sacking. I have lots of pictures for you to see as evidence.

    Recycling left on kitchen worktop. Bin not emptied in living room. Upstairs single bed not stripped with brown stains on sheets with towels thrown on single bed not previously used. Double bed not stripped had to strip and wash all sheets and pillowcases myself made bed by 9 30pm after drying them. No fresh towels put out only the used towels hanging on the back of the bedroom door. I would like to send you some photographs.

  • "This property is shabby and run down."

    Downstairs smelt very fusty especially the old settees. The light above the wash basin did not work. To shut the door to use the wash basin you have to go into the toilet/bathroom to shut it. The toilet seat was loose and the bathroom smelt damp. The toilet just about fits in between the bath and the wall and you have to manoeuvre round the positioning of the toilet roll holder to sit on the loo! There are no radiators in this area so I presume in cold weather you would have to leave the bath/toilet and wash basin doors open to get some heat in from the kitchen. One of the light bulbs in the kitchen did not work. The outside yard needs weeding and generally looks uninviting. There are 3 stairs in the living room before you turn to go upstairs. There is a door above the 3 stairs that can be shut with a connection on the doorframe. This connection was loose and hanging off and my husband caught and ripped his canvas jacket on it and had he not been wearing a jacket he probably would have needed stitches in his arm. We were visiting relatives and had we not of been celebrating a family birthday on the Friday we would have left on the Monday when we arrived. I honestly cannot believe that you can charge £522 to stay in this property for 5 nights. I would not stay in it if you paid me. On a brighter note I have now finished washing every article of clothing we took with us hence getting rid of the fusty smell they were infused with.

  • "What a wonderful home from home!"

    A great location and a beautiful cottage that has everything you could need and more. Paignton is a stunning town with lots of attractions and good places to eat. Clement cottage is clearly loved by it's owners and they care about the guests. The beds are comfortable and the bedding (and towels) is really high quality, best nights sleep in ages. On arrival the cottage was spotless and tea, coffee and biscuits were available, which was a nice touch. I would highly recommend a holiday here, and am planning to book again next year.

  • "The cottage was like a home from home."

    We wanted for nothing. Everything was there at hand ie; cooking ,laundry facilities etc. The comfort and feel of the place was really good. The location was perfect. Parking could have been an issue but we managed to work round that without costing us to much. One issue that we did find was trying to work out what rubbish went into what bin and what rubbish was classed as one type and what was another, so apologies to the owner for that because when we arrived there was already a square plastic bin with mixed rubbish in it. Don't let this cloud any judgement on the actual cottage, the premises are absolutely brilliant throughout 10/10. Couldn't be any better.

  • "We’ve stayed at a few Sykes properties over the years and this one is up there."

    It is in a perfect location and had everything we needed. The bathroom downstairs is a bit annoying but only really in the night. There was no cupboard space for groceries in the actual kitchen but there is space in the bathroom, which sort of acts as a utility room. Parking was no problem as we parked in the public car park 2 mins away and I paid for a Torbay weekly parking permit in advance for £35. There are restaurants, bars and cafe really near by and the local shop is a stones throw. If you are taking the family dog you couldn’t find a more perfect spot. Roundham Head is just around the corner and brilliant for letting your dog have a good run. Goodrington also has a brilliant park for dogs and people alike and is a 10 minute walk. We would definitely consider staying again.

  • "The cottage itself was great, comfortable and very clean, and the kitchen particularly better equipped than the average standard."

    However I did contact Sykes customer service just before going, to ask 2 questions 1) the previous reviewer highlighted a mould problem in the bathroom, and I wanted it dealt with before I arrived - it was, but no one from Sykes phoned or emailed me before I got there to discover it for myself, even though I emailed again several times. I do not think Sykes customer service met expectations. And 2) an email from Sykes warned at the last minute that although the ad said free parking, that was no longer possible May to September - So I wanted to know how much it would be. I was told that the owner when asked by you had said they never had any trouble finding free parking nearby, but there was a car park charging 2.50 per day very close, anyway. Well as it turned out the owner was wrong about that, or had never visited during a heat wave weekend, because we had to park a long way away, making unloading the car a problem. And the fee at the carpark was £10 per day, so anyone booking the cottage needs to be warned to factor in that extra cost to their holiday budget.
