  • "Great home for my whole family, we all enjoyed the stay."

    Everyone enjoyed it. Only a few things, no decaf options of tea and coffee, and the Wi-Fi would drop out on the top floor when everyone else woke up and joined the Wi-Fi.

  • "We’ve just had a lovely week in the Family House, the house is beautiful and provided us with everything we needed for a large family we had more than enough room to enjoy the property either together as a large family or separately when we needed that bit of space."

    We picked up on a couple of things but in no way did this effect our stay it’s just more to make you aware, there are no bins in any of the bedrooms/bathrooms, there was one small bin in the main bathroom but that is the only one so we had to use carrier bags in the other bathrooms and bedrooms. The large bedroom on the top floor doesn’t have any mirror so when getting ready I was having to use the mirror downstairs next to the kitchen which wasn’t ideal. The house would benefit from having some plastic plates/cups our youngest child is two and I was having to give her juice in a glass. For the most part the house is clean, the bedrooms and bathrooms were all clean but the outside could do with a wipe down, the window and doorframes were covered in cobwebs and definitely hadn’t been cleaned in a while. Overall we really enjoyed our week away and the property is a lovely property to stay in.

  • "This property is ideal for a big family and has a lovely garden for the children to play in."

    They especially enjoyed feeding the fish once a day. The living room, sun room and kitchen are large and lovely to use. The bathrooms are done to a very high standard. The property is a lovely property to stay but we experienced a few problems. We found the washing machine needs investigation as it leaves marks on clothes that you wash. We could not get the dishwasher to work as it had an error code. We could not find any instructions to identify what this code was, therefore we washed all our pots by hand. The instruction manual needs full instructions for all the appliances. The top floor bedroom was the master bedroom. There was nowhere to dry and style your hair. There are plenty of plugs but could not sit under the eaves banging my head. No mirror at all except in the bathroom. I had to sit in another bedroom with a very little mirror and dressing table. I feel there is room to improve the top floor bedroom with hair styling facilities. The slide needs replacing as it has a crack around the fixings. Overall we had a good time but these few problems were inconvenient.

  • "Our extended family have used Sykes cottages/houses for many years now and enjoyed the high standard of quality homes/cottages and customer service throughout."

    Particularly when we stayed at Baytree Lodge in Osmington which went above and beyond our expectations. However, we were somewhat disappointed with this particular house. On the whole the house itself was stunning. However, Just from personal preference the house would have been enjoyed more if there had been ensuite bathrooms, if it had a dryer as well as a washing machine; a larger table in the conservatory area as this was a preferred eating place to the lounge. From an overall perspective we were very disappointed with the fact we arrived on the Friday only to find all the outside wheelie bins full and overflowing. We later discovered the bin collection was not until Tuesday and even on that day, only one bin was emptied. This meant we had nowhere to put the rubbish and had to put it all in bags in the garage until we left, only for the next family to arrive and find the exact same issues we did. Although the WiFi was not working when we arrived this issue was dealt with quickly within 24 hours. Our expectations of cleanliness are very high and usually met however, the overall cleanliness of this house was poor as most rooms appeared dusty and the kitchen fridge, microwave and oven were (without exaggeration) filthy. My father and brother spent 2 hours cleaning down all of these areas before we could use them. Although the gentleman whom my sister in law complained to, on the phone did offer to send someone round to clean the house, it had already been done by then. We would still highly recommend the group and hence the high score of 9, as we still had an enjoyable holiday, and we have spent many years enjoying the quality homes that you normally provide. However, We just would not expect the poor level of cleanliness from this property and thus disappointed. This is the reason we only gave a 3 for this property.

  • "Lovely holiday, lovely house in a great location with good facilities, had everything we need."

    Some furniture needs to be replaced/updated (some tables and chairs) disappointed with the cleanliness of the property, high chair and travel cot absolutely filthy and also the downstairs mattress protector covered in stains.

  • "My extended family of three generations just enjoyed a great week at the Family House ."

    There was plenty of room for everyone; the beds were comfortable and facilities met all our needs . The grandchildren loved the garden and feeding the fish. There was plenty of parking and the road was quiet. We would definitely think about booking again as we love Weymouth for a family holiday . Dream Cottages we’re quick to deal with our inquiry about the cot.

  • "The house was very suitable for us and we had a great time."

    The children loved feeding the fish! We would like to tell you of some issues which we think should be addressed: The paving slabs to the top steps in the garden are loose and potentially dangerous. One of the double beds had broken slats and one has a broken central support, making these beds uncomfortable. There is a cracked floor tile in the kitchen. There was a shortage of cooking cutlery especially sharp knives and dishes for a house of this size.

  • "We had a lovely stay in this very spacious house."

    It felt like a home. We were staying with our two daughters, husbands, 2 three yr olds and a 11month baby and it met all our needs. The little boys loved feeding the fish daily. They happily played with the toys from the garage and playhouse in the garden. We would recommend this beautiful modern house to large family groups similar to ours. It was very convenient for beach, walks and shops. We also visited Monkey World and walked to the Sealife Centre, both were good value for money and the little boys loved the animals. We highly recommend this holiday let..

    The sofas were really comfortable and the house was lovely and warm. We were able to fit our 3 cars easily in the drive. A 15 minute stroll to the seafront from the house turning right from coming out the front door. Great location for amenities too.

  • "Great house, very comfortable, lovely enclosed garden."

    Bedding and towels lovely. All rooms a good size. Conservatory lovely and sunny and lounge /dining room comfortable. Good location a short drive or a 30m + walk to the beach. Park and aquarium etc at the end of the road. The only negatives are: bedroom on the ground floor but no shower room so not suitable for those who cant climb the stairs the shower on the top floor ran cold despite the bath having hot water The kitchen didn't have enough items for a large party, eg no large saucepans, very few mugs, no large bowls for salad bowl etc - appeared to be set up for use by 4 people.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have ensured that the kitchen is fully equipped for all your needs. Property Owner
