  • "We really loved the cottage, everything was great."

    Fantastic location. Super clean and newly decorated. Lovely views. Excellent kitchen. Good linen. Comfy beds. However there was one one significant issue - the people who live in the flat upstairs are incredibly noisy (running around, banging, washing mashing on at 11pm). This really needs to be sorted out as it would stop us from rebooking such an excellent apartment

  • "We had a wonderful holiday in a very comfortable flat."

    Even when it rained we were happy to relax in the bright, airy accommodation. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed and with sharp knives (not usual in self catering)! We slept well. The beds were so comfortable. We did have problems finding Melbury Flats. The sign was too low and overgrown.

  • "Fantastic apartment, beautifully updated with all you could need."

    Please be aware of the very steep, lengthy walk back from town if you have any mobility issues. Otherwise this is a great place to spend a relaxing break.

  • "The apartment was beautiful, well furnished, clean and we were left a little gift of Prosecco, coffee and biscuits by the owners, which is a lovely touch."

    We enjoyed it so much we have booked again for Regatta weeks next year. The only disappointment was the old couple downstairs who complained about ‘noise pollution’ when our children were walking across the sitting room floor. There was no undue noise, no shouting, no arguing, nothing other than normal day-to-day noise. This put a slight dampener on the last day, however the lady who rang from Sykes about the ‘complaint’ was lovely and understanding, putting our minds at rest. I get the impression that the old couple downstairs enjoy making the odd complaint here and there! Other than that, great apartment, fantastic views, reasonably priced and totally relaxing. Oddly, the long uphill walk back from town is great for winding down before bed after a day on the water, Beach, shopping or walking.

  • "The cleanliness was impeccable and it was a nice touch to leave tea bags, coffee (and Prosecco!"

    ) out on arrival. The standard of interior furnishings, quality of bed mattresses etc really made it feel like a superior experience.
