    Central location a big plus. Fine view. Very limited freeview channels - no channel 11.

    I am disabled. there is no ramp to help me manage the doorstep. The staff were very friendly and helped with our luggage

  • "Following issues with cleanliness at No7 in 2020 I gave a 2nd chance for 2021."

    The condition of No3 was poor and reported to the local office The kitchen floor had not been mopped in ages ( I discovered this after my local complaint). There was water ingress down the wall , fridge was rusty, bed linen from previous guest had been left on the sofa bed. The corners of rooms were full of fluff and the state of the store cupboard where hoover is kept was filthy. The smell coming from the hoover when in use was awful and the cleaner itself was dirty. I purchased bedding for the sofa bed to ensure cleanliness and peace of mind. Seagulls were not discouraged by staff on site and would bathe in the swimming pool daily. When I attempted to discourage one bird I was advised by a member of staff that the gardens belong to the seagulls not residents. In my personal opinion the apartment was not Covid safe when we arrived. The local office asked if I wanted someone to call but I declined owing to Covid protocols.

  • "I will preface these comments by saying that we have stayed at The Salcombe many times, mainly in No 3, but also in No 2, No 4 and also in (I think) No 27."

    We have always booked through Coast and Country Cottages in Salcombe and have always found them friendly and helpful and importantly, accessible, as indeed they still are. Sykes fail miserably in the latter criteria. We needed to stop on our journey to advise Salcombe we might be late for check in, but by the the time we actually spoke to someone we were about 30 minutes later. We also needed to let the local office know the tv didn't work; again a long wait to speak to anyone, and that someone was in Chester who promised we would be notified when someone would attend. No one did. We have booked Sykes in the past, in the Wye Valley, which was an extremely disappointing experience, so were very concerned when confirmation of the recent holiday came from Sykes when I thought I had booked with Coast and Country Cottages. The sad thing is if we want to continue taking our breaks in No 3 we will have no choice but to deal with Sykes. Why can't you learn from the local office instead of assuming your method is an improvement?

  • "Apartment is in great location but very tired."

    Was also very cold and took a long time to warm up after turning the thermostat up. There was barely a third of a toilet roll provided, which just seemed mean. Wouldn’t choose this apartment again.

  • "Unlike previous reviews we found 3 The Salcombe nice and clean, although we did think the property was a little tired and dated, especially the bathroom."

    You couldn't wish for a better location, the views across the water couldn't be beaten and the heated swimming pool was a welcome bonus.

  • "I have booked this property for the last six years."

    I have always found the property facilities excellently suited my family needs however this year the property was even more unclean than it has been in previous years. Over the last six years I found the property to be unclean in certain areas such as dirty cutlery, food debris under the microwave, dirt under the table, the kitchen flooring area not being mopped, dusty skirting boards and food debris under the sofa. I have always made a conscious effort to leave the property immaculate so that nobody would find it as I have done. The cleaners I understand change bedsheets and towels however they do not check details like these. To make this worse I have now been told that I am unable to rebook this property as the Coast And Country company have different policies and do not allow preferential booking for previous customers. If I had known that all loyalties would be lost I would have complained years ago.

    Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback regarding your stay at 3 The Salcombe. We are very disappointed to hear that the property was not presented satisfactorily on your arrival. We work very hard with our housekeeping and property maintenance team to ensure that our high standards are maintained, and we are sorry to on this occasion we did not meet your expectations. We ask that were are given the opportunity to rectify any issues, so it is disappointing that we did not hear from you during your stay as we most certainly would have been able to have our housekeeping team address these points for you. We are sorry that we do not offer the 'rebook' procedure that we used to, however we now have a 24 month calendar available for guests to make bookings well in advance. We hope that we can welcome you back to Salcombe next year. Property Owner

    It could do with a full length mirror on the wall outside the bathroom. At present there isn't a full length mirror in the property.

  • "This apartment is in need of a facelift, the sofa's were not very comfortable, lack of spare light bulbs, cleanliness was poor."

    Crockery was dirty as was the wash handbasin in the toilet and tooth mug therein. The lack of a full length mirror was poor. The blinds in the bedroom would not stay up and were bent and dirty and the sitting room blinds were also bent in places. Having said that, the company were quick to rectify things. Location of the property is excellent, with convenient parking.

    Very unhygienic having carpet in a bathroom especially as it is rented property! Sofa bed extremely uncomfortable.....our backs are still recovering. Overall condition of apartment very poor.

  • "The access to the flat is defiantly not suitable for elderly people, a 20 m slope of 40 degrees running like a stream when it rains and a stupid gate that has to be opened with a key each time, especially when unloading your car which has to be parked at the top of the slope."

    the flat smelled musty and was very cold when we arrived.
