  • "Although we enjoyed our stay this is the first Sykes holiday property we have been to where we have had no contact from the owners to check everything was ok."

    It is also the first place we have been to without a welcome pack of essentials such as milk, butter, bread etc. We were disappointed to find watered down hand wash in the kitchen particularly with the current situation. Overall the property did not feel homely due to the open plan nature of the main living area and as someone else had pointed out the net curtains left you feeling on view and chilly- curtains would help to make you feel more cosy and less on view. The parking place was an advantage.

  • "Fabulous recently furbished apartment."

    Getting the door key out of the key safe was the most stressful part.

  • "We had a wonderful holiday."

    The flat is an excellent base to explore from. It has been done to a high quality. The kitchen was lovely, very well equipped. It had a dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and a dolce gusto coffee machine. So don’t first to bring some pods with you for it. We ordered an Asda delivery for our first day which was easy. The cupboard had herbs, tea bags, dishwasher tablets and some washing machine tablets. But I imagine they were left by previous occupants. We left cooking oil there too. The bedrooms had very comfortable beds and the bed linen was very soft. Both rooms had plenty of storage and bedside lamps. The towels were huge and thick. There were extra towels left for everyone. The 2 bathrooms were lovely, good sizes, v pretty lighting options. The bath was huge and the shower had 2 shower heads which was v nice. Liquid soap, toilet rolls and shower gel were available. The main bedroom had a television in it too with freeview on. It has a Hoover, extension cable, iron and ironing board in the storage cupboard. Cleaning sprays, cloths, tea towels and an oven glove. There are 2 hair dryers, with attachments. There is a huge tv in the lounge, it was a smart TV with freeview and apps for Netflix, etc. If I was going again I would take a bag of coat hangers as I could have done with more. Although there are some, there was about 10 in each of the 2 wardrobes. I would also fit in a clothes airer/ suction washing line to dry items I didn’t want to tumble dry. I ended up using a towel rail from the bathroom put in the lounge in the sun, the window ledge and dining chairs. There was a washing line in the garden with a peg bag but I didn’t use it as I didn’t know who it belonged to. The single beds are narrow so if 4 adults go then the ones who don’t wiggle would need to sleep in them. They’re v comfortable though. I rearranged the room to put both beds against the walls and put spare pillows and towels on the floor as both kids kept rolling out. They loved it. The area: it’s a 5 minute walk to the beach front. There’s a little shop (closed Sunday’s) which is like a little spar. A bar ‘hatch’ with picnic benches on the beach to drink your alcoholic drinks. A nik nak shop behind it and a surfing/beach shop selling wetsuits, blow up boats, water shoes, etc. The beach is stony with small sand patches but water shoes were great. It’s shallow quite a way out so perfect for the kids. 10 minutes down the beach to the left brought us to the Hoseasons site with bars, cafe, restaurant, Ice cream shop, milkshake shop, chippy. There’s a fresh water river running to the beach there too which loads of kids loved damning with the rocks and playing with. A jetty people were crabbing off too. It’s all dog friendly. The restaurant had dog bowls in too. If you turn right at the beach you can walk along a promenade to Weymouth. We were delighted to have taken the scooters as it’s a safe zone away from the cars and the kids loved riding up and down it. It was a 20 minute walk to the edge of Weymouth town. There the beach is sand and no dogs are allowed. It is very pretty with houses overlooking the front. No little shops until much further down. A few cafes are there. There’s a pub next to the Sealife Centre just there on the edge of town. About 15 more minutes along the promenade is a lovely cafe in a garden. Slightly further is a cheapo beach toy shop with arcades. We went to the Sealife Centre which was amazing for little kids in good weather. The Kellogg’s vouchers made the £80 fee a bargain at £38. It’s got a big playground, arcades, splash park and knee high pool with slide and water bucket. There are changing rooms, pizza shop and waffle shop there. We went to Monkey World but it was v hot, with lethargic monkeys and lots of large fast kids on the excellent playgrounds so we were a little disappointed. It’s a lovely location for a walk round though and lots of picnic spots there. A visit to Dudley Door was fantastic and seeing the cliffs with caves/arches was great. A fabulous place to walk about. Wear shoes though as it’s a mile walk from the car park. Once you leave the car park there aren’t any water kiosks so go prepared. We went to the national trust beach Knoll beach too which was white sand and shallow water. It was a perfect day out. An excellent holiday and we would book into the accommodation again.

  • "The code for entry to the complex was temperamental and occasionally needed to use the key instead but we didn’t know about that until we rang Sykes."

    Other than that, it was a superb apartment, great location, very well furnished and had everything you needed in a kitchen.

  • "It would have been nice to have had curtains or blinds in the front bay window."

    The net curtains were adequate during the day but would have liked to have the option of privacy in the evening with blinds or curtains. They would certainly be essential in the winter months.
