  • "Our second visit to Summer Star cottage again did not disappoint."

    The cottage is so cosy with quality bedding and towels. The summer house is an added bonus and the outside space perfect for relaxing after a day out enjoying the beach at Teignmouth.

    We are very glad you enjoyed your stay again. Thank you for your positive feedback, it is very much appreciated. We hope to welcome you again in the future. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage, so clean and well equipped."

    Lovely beds, towels, bedding. Peaceful and great location. Would’ve been helpful to highlight the low beams in the cottage, my partner is over 6 foot and had to move carefully around the lounge!

    Thank you for your kind words. Your comments are very much appreciated. Oh no! Thank you for mentioning the beams - Unfortunately I have never thought of mentioning them - even though my nephew is also over 6 foot and has the same problem. I will ask Sykes to add it to our comment about steep cottage stairs. Thanks again. Property Owner

  • "Fantastic cottage with a lot of character although it was smaller than it looked in the pictures."

    Everything you need although a hairdryer would have been nice. Lots to do in the area and a good base if you are using public transport.

  • "We had a lovely holiday in Summer Star Cottage which was in a great location for walking to the town and beach."

    We swam in the sea a lot as good weather and lovely sandy beach. Zena was an excellent host, very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend staying in this well equipped cottage in a great location and really appreciated the milk and box of chocolates on arrival.

  • "The cottage was located only 10 minutes walk from the seafront."

    Parking is available outside or on nearby streets - never had a problem finding a space. The cottage has all the facilities needed and is modern. The garden was lovely with ample space for outside dining and the summer house is ideal as an extra bedroom if required. All the information needed is outlined in the cottage with helpful notices. Had a great stay.

  • "Dear Sykes, I was impressed with the property, the small touches such as some basic food items, the decorations for Xmas, etc."

    This sets you apart from the norm and is very nice to see. Our stay was comfortable and most enjoyable with very little in the way of maintenance problems. (only 1 bulb and 1 x rubber protector on the back of one of the chairs that gave a problem) this is exceptionally good for a 10 day stay. The property has obviously been relatively recently renovated and the finishing details are of a reasonably high standard, so all worked well without any problems. Not only would we be happy to recommend the property to others, we would be happy to rent the same for our next trip to that part of the UK. Thanks again for your efforts and dedication to detail. It makes all the difference. Regards, Bob Hawke

  • "Teignmouth is a charming small town, ideal centre for touring near by."

    Excellent busy week, comfy cosy small cottage situated within 5 minutes of town centre. I will happily come back. But what you MUST do is NOT mislead your customers with any description. The master bedroom upstairs has been described as having BREATH TAKING VIEWS, which is simply not correct and therefore misleading. There is only a glimpse of the sea over the roofs and with tall trees growing in neighbouring properties it soon will disappear completely. For your good reputation, I suggest you remove the description completely from your brochure. Also, although the facing properties only have bathroom blurred windows, the kitchen would benefit from a voile curtain or similar on the French doors for extra privacy especially when the light is on...

    Thank you for your feedback. I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Summer Star Cottage. We have taken your feedback onboard and have made amendments to the description. I was glad to meet you as requested introduced you to the cottage and Teignmouth. I hope to welcome you back soon. Property Owner

  • "The stairs are very steep, would not be suitable for the elderly or anyone with mobility problems."

    One of the bedrooms has the bed up against the wall so the person by the wall cannot get out with out waking the other. Solution for us was I slept in the summer house which was lovely and comfortable. The location is also up a hill again no good for people with walking problems. I think these points should be added in your details of the cottage.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We have taken your useful comments on board and have now amended the website. We hope to welcome you back soon. Thank you. Property Owner

  • "Really lovely holiday."

    Only issue was that the shower was tempermental going boiling hot and then cold. I could not get gas hob to ignite on the oven so used a lighter, not sure if a fault or something i was doing incorrectly. Just letting you know. Overall clean and comfortable and had everything we needed and was easy to get parking on side street which was usefull. Thank you very much for a lovely stay and we will happily stay again.

    Thank you so much for your feedback and I'm glad you enjoyed your holiday. I've had the oven ignition issue resolved and I'm sorry for any inconvenience this caused you. I've also now had a new shower installed (end of April 2019) so that the shower facilities are improved. Thank you again for letting me know so I can continue the high standards at the property and I look forward to your next visit. Property Owner
