  • "The apartment is very tired looking,chipped crockery,patio doors that would not open and the entrance has a damp and musty smell."

    Not really big enough for 5 adults more suited to a family with children.

  • "I called the phone number to enquire about linen & towel changing at the midpoint of our 2 week stay on the 1st Sunday of our holiday."

    A message was taken by the answering service but nobody ever got back to me. The bedrooms all need blackout blinds.

  • "The apartment is in a perfect location to explore the wonderful coastline around thurlestone."

    The apartment is very roomy and comfortable we were the only people in the block it was so quiet and peaceful yet you are only a 10 minute walk to a lovely pub, shop and the beach. So many walks, coves and little villages to explore, a hidden gem we will definitely return.

  • "Lovely spacious apartment in a beautiful location."

    Comfortable and well equipped. Minor suggestions for improvement are: - instructions for waste disposal could be clearer: there seemed to be four different bins - garage door needs some maintenance

  • "Lovely cosy accommodation within a short walk of many pretty coves and only a 20 minute drive from Salcombe."

  • "We loved the flat, it had a very homely feel although the kitchen could use an update and the single beds were not very comfortable."

    The area is very unspoilt and we really enjoyed exploring despite the varied weather.

  • "Apartment was great however - rug in lounge sheds fluff everywhere, washing machine works ok but tumble drier just seems to take forever, dish washer works but there’s a knack to closing the door properly - it needs instructions or replacing, fridge door needs mending(doesn’t affect working of fridge), opening knobs on cupboards in master bedroom need fixing into the cupboard door, lock needed for main bathroom and en suite, the plastic table covering was not clean on arrival - the top was but not the sides, the place mats have seen better days and the balcony needed a good sweep underneath the chairs."

    This seems like a long list and all these things need sorting immediately but we would return as the flat and its location were lovely.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments regarding your recent stay at 2 Tanworth House We work very hard with our Owners and individual cleaners/caretakers to ensure all properties are clean, tidy and well presented before the arrival of holiday guests and we are sorry that these checks did not highlight the issues you have raised. It is disappointing that you did not contact us with these cleanliness and maintenance issues during your stay as we would have most certainly been able to rectify most of this for you immediately. We were glad to hear that you enjoyed your time in Thurlestone and hope to see you again soon! Property Owner

  • "The property location and facilities were fine and probably exceeded expectations."

    However, what I believe is totally unacceptable is to allow a booking to be made and paid for in full, then to give 10 days notice by phone that the building would be surrounded by scaffolding. Work of that nature does not occur at 10 days notice and it was clear had been booked months in advance. The Sykes representative that phoned me 10 days prior to the start of the holiday said that scaffolding would only be in position for part of the holiday period, which was also clearly incorrect. The decorators were in attendance throughout the whole week (apart from when the weather made that impossible) and although they were both friendly and apologetic, the fact remains that in all rooms apart from the lounge the curtains remained mostly drawn from arrival to departure, for the sake of some privacy. The experience has certainly 'soured' our experience of Sykes Holiday Cottages, had we known of the planned decoration work we would certainly have made another choice. I have photographic evidence of the view from each of the windows should that be of interest.

    Was apprehensive about staying in a flat with young children but it proved no problem.

  • "Tanworth Apartment No2."

    is a great location & generally is lovely but there are a few little things that need to be sorted in order to get it up to scratch - very minor items but would make the difference : i) there are quite a few stains on the cream carpet (I did try to send you some photos when I first got there but not sure they went through), ii) lots (and I mean lots) of the plates, bowls & even mugs are chipped (at least 10 items), iii) the cutlery is all miss matched (I guess this is standard for holiday lets - but a cheap set from Ikea wouldn't go amiss), iv) the pillows are mainly feather (which was a problem for our daughter who is allergic - so we had to go out & buy pillows for her), v) there are no blackout blinds/material in the curtains - this means that it is bright daylight at 5am in the bedrooms (a couple of blackout roller blinds would make a huge difference in the twin rooms - especially if you have children in those rooms), the curtains in the main bedroom need lining with blackout material vi) the cooker makes a buzzing/humming noise constantly (unless you turn it off at the wall which we did when we weren't using it) vii) the fridge does not work properly - you did provide an alternative fridge in the utility room but it was smaller than the main fridge. You also sent someone to look at the main fridge (built in) and twice the knob was turned back to setting 4 and the temperature in the fridge was back up to 10degrees when we returned to the apartment (not great for our food in there ... crab, cream etc) This isn't meant to be moan - but points where I think the property could/should be improved with minimal effort - apart from the fridge which is a big pain. Am happy to talk to anyone about the above. Regards Elizabeth
