  • "The property was very clean and cosy, we had a 4 day stay here over Christmas and into New Year’s Day."

    Located close to Weymouth seafront and town, I would recommend this property to anyone thinking of booking it.

  • "Found everything we needed."

  • "A great place to stay, perfectly located and a cosy bungalow with large back garden."

    The tea and coffee packs on arrival were thoughtful. I'm not sure what a couple of previous reviews meant about the windows and bins. All windows had keys and could be opened easily & safely. Because bin day is Thurs there's going to be a bag of rubbish in the bin, same as you'll be leaving one yourself on a Friday or weekend check in. Overall a lovely holiday was had, especially appreciated the washing machine, dishwasher, jigsaws and books. Perhaps a few more children's books could be a nice addition?

  • "Lovely place to stay."

    Had everything we needed and the secure garden was an added bonus for our elderly dog as she enjoyed just laying outside. Good location close to beach amd shops and just a short drive to Weymouth.

  • "On the whole it was a lovely relaxing stay."

    Felt really at home there. The whole place was well equipped and clean and the beds were really comfortable. The garden was really nice although could benefit from an outdoor light if possible. My only concerns were very minor and may seem petty. They were, a loose toilet seat in the main bathroom and we were unable to open any windows in the property without the fear of damaging them.

  • "Great holiday home in a lovely location."

    Clean and comfortable making the perfect base for exploring Dorset. Driveway easy to park and lovely well maintained garden for our puppy. Lots of kitchen utensils and kitchen is perfect. Lounge fab with plenty of seating and a table for the kids to do crafts. Shower room functional and does the job. Bigger shower would be amazing and easier for parents to shower the kids but it was fine for us to use. Would use again if visiting the area and would highly recommend! Thanks for a wonderful stay.

  • "Problem with rubbish, outside bin was overflowing when we arrived, and was not emptied."

    Did not know that we had to strip beds on departure, as this was not mentioned in information pack, only told to us by Sykes after we got home.

  • "The property was close to all amenities as stated, just a blip away from Weymouth where there is plenty to do and see."

    Would like to have seen a guest book so we could leave tips on places of interest that we found and wanted to share like The Fat Badger for something to eat. Shame on the people before us with a dog for not picking up their Dog Poo!!!

    A beautiful bungalow had everything you need for a perfect holiday the only problem was the shower which we had to call out some one to check this was done quickly and resolved reasonably well although it meant cool showers to avoid scalding the cubicle was also a little small we had a lovely holiday and would book again Joyce and Richard

    Very well equipped kitchen and comfortable living room. Shower is a little on the small side. We would happily recommend the property to others.

  • "We really liked the bungalow and loved Preston where it was situated - i was disapointed that there was no tv in the main bedroom as i do like to go to bed and watch tv for a while."

    The main problem is the shower which was very old fashioned and too small for my husband to even get into!! I would only re book this bungalow if this were updated. More low lighting is needed in the lounge there was no visitors book so i put my comments on a piece of paper
