  • "It's all about the stunning views."

    It has taken me 6 years to get back to Ross House for a second stay and it was worth the wait. Its just as good as I remembered. The location is the best in town.

  • "Once again we had a lovely stay."

    We have stayed at Ross House on many occasions over the years and we find it to be comfortable and appreciate all that the owner has done to make it so. Of course, it is the tranquil view and beautiful setting which we love - it has made Lyme a most happy place for our family over the years and so we are immensely grateful to the owner for making their property available and for giving us so much joy.

  • "Ross house is situated in a great location and the house was much bigger than expected."

    Previous reviews mentioned poor cleanliness and dated decoration but on arrive it exceeded our expectations and suited our need perfectly. I would highly recommend this Ross house and would definitely stay there in the future.

  • "A beautiful holiday property that was well equipped and ideally located near the beach and charming shops."

    As with so many popular resorts, car parking (especially unloading/loading luggage) was a pain.

  • "The property is in a great location and has an amazing sea view from all windows."

    From a cleanliness perspective the property could definitely benefit from some TLC. It’s quirky and has great features but just general decor and finishing touches let it down. Also, the TV didn’t work either upstairs in the living room or kitchen. It turned on but no terrestrial channels available. Also would have been nice to have some sun loungers or better chairs outside to relax on. As it was very hot, but we couldn’t enjoy the outside space to its fullest. Good, property but needs some love for the price you’re paying.

  • "Amazing location and lovely homely accommodation with a warm welcome from the owners."

    We would live to go back!

  • "A fantastic house and a generous welcome pack thank you."

    A few things would make the property pretty much perfect 1. Cleaning very large amounts of seagull poo off windows… we appreciate its an ongoing problem but it spectacularly ruined the view last week!! 2. Providing sacks for linen so that we could do as asked with it at the end of our stay. 3. Provide more purple recycling bags and make sure all 3 sets of recycling instructions say the same thing. 4. Fix the thermostat. 5. Do something about 5amp socket in sitting room which, if one had a crawling baby, would be a risk. Hope these are helpful suggestions!

  • "Wonderful stay in this comfortable house with beautiful coastal views from every window."

    An issue with the twin beds was resolved swiftly and efficiently - we can't praise the Sykes team and the maintenance people enough. Would highly recommend Ross House. We hope to be back.

  • "Had a great stay at Ross House, it is in a perfect location with wonderful views over the sea."

    The house was well equipped and a lovely place for a pre-Christmas get together with family.

  • "The broken springs on the twin beds make it uncomfortable to sleep in and my back sore."

    These two beds need replacing.

  • "These are our observations which we hope you find helpful: No high chair or stair gate even though paperwork suggested there would be."

    No attempt to weed garden, sweep back patio, sweep front path or clean outside windowsills. Hazards like ladders and umbrella stands left out in garden - so not child-friendly. Sun umbrella was not big enough and it was broken. Full-length mirror in master bedroom just propped up could have created a dangerous accident for our 2 yr old. Raw plug and hook have come away from wall in master bedroom so curtain can’t be held back - we reported this several years ago, House smelt a little stale. Chair arms in kitchen were sticky and some drawers etc. Didn’t get the impression that a good ‘Covid’ clean had been carried out. Bleach hadn’t been used in the toilets and the hot water tap in downstairs toilet was dirty. There is still an issue with the bath plug. The two single bed mattresses probably need replacing as they have become very soft and very squeaky. Although we do love the position of Ross House and very much appreciated the bag of goodies and pint of milk, we were disappointed that the house didn’t feel as fresh and holiday-ready as we expected it to.
