    Lovely ground floor apartment very close to all amenities' in west bay with small supermarket within 5 minutes walk loads of places to eat and drink nearby will gladly book this again

    We especially chose the apartment for it closeness to all the amenities, meaning you don't always have to use your car once in the Bay. Hopefully we will welcome you back to use the apartment again. Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed our stay in West Bay and apartment in good location."

    Obviously no sea or harbour view but easy access to parking and apartment.Our son is in a small wheelchair so ok for us but there is limited space in the apartment.In the small bathroom the shower over the bath worked well but there was no caddy for soap, shampoo etc and not easy to get into and better quality towels needed) . Happy with kitchen equipment but no tea pot and coffee maker. Good wifi and and tv. We had a big problem with washing machine as the door wouldn't open (after texting the owner it was explained it had a fault and we managed to get clothes out eventually). I did pass on our comments to the owner so hopefully the improvements will be made to this apartment. Due to lack of a wardrobe for hanging clothes in the smaller bedroom this is only a place for small family with young children not 2 couples.

    We noted your comments when you telephoned us and thanked you for them. Property Owner

    Sadly I had to cut my stay to only 2 nights due to a family crisis back in Hampshire. I informed the owner who’s number was in the folder in the property that I would be leaving. Fantastic well equipped holiday let

    We are sorry your stay could not have been longer, and we were pleased that you were able to contact us with the details in the guest folder. Property Owner

  • "Ideal location with parking outside."

    It was spotlessly clean. The flat was well appointed with all appliances to make life simple. We could walk for 5 mins and we were right on the beach. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this apartment.

    It is our little piece of heaven and a great place to unwind in West Bay Property Owner

  • "Apartment 7 was perfect for our week long holiday with our dog and 9 and 15 year old children."

    It had everything we needed for a wonderful stay, Full kitchen ( Neff appliances, washer, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, iron , clothes airer , WiFi, TV In living room and main bedroom all at a very good holiday let quality. The beds and bedding we found very comfortable and although we had neighbours above us and either side of us as its the summer holidays, we would never have known as didn't hear anything from them through the walls at all ! The location of this Apartment couldn't be more central as everything is within a 5 minute walk. The only slight negative is the view from the lounge window / door. You look at the carpark (but aleast you view your car too) and the back of other apartments, A sea view would've been the icing on the cake , but it's a small price to pay for a perfect little, well decorated holiday let. Westbay is quiet at nightime (apart from the Gulls) with little entertainment except a couple of family pubs / restaurants but that can be a bonus as it felt unbelievably safe to walk around at anytime . Because of Covid we couldn't go on the holiday park to swim or buy passes for the amenities but it didn't matter after all, Plenty of beaches and walks and crabbing to keep occupied. We will definitely visit this let again as a little home from home !

    We loved holidaying here with our children and is why we have the apartment and like to share it, so people can also enjoy what West Dorset has to offer Property Owner

    Surfaces hadn't been wiped down and the bedrooms were very dusty. Having spent 5 hours driving down we then had to spend some considerable time bringing it up to an acceptable standard.

  • "I am disabled and realise that I need to be very careful when selecting a property for holiday."

    I therefore used your specially prepared list of properties that met my needs. My search only revieled one concern, that was the entry door, so I rang Sykes who contacted the owner who said there was no problem. They were wrong and it caused me a daily access problem. However my major problem was the two bedrooms, neither of which was accessible via scooter . Both bedrooms had furniture fitted making access impossible. After much soul searching I needed to remove the footplate from my wheelchair to provide space at floor, then drive to end of the single bed, then carefully lower myself onto the bed. Then I needed to slowly work myself up the bed till I reached the pillows, when my wife would lower the duvet onto me. Getting up in the morning was even more problematic. So in summary this apartment should not have been listed in the ‘disabled’ section and proved to be totally unsuitable for myself, which spoilt my enjoyment totally.

    I am sorry you found the apartment was not suitable for your needs, this property is not advertised as suitable for guests with disabilities. We would recomend any guest with special requirements call the Sykes cottages reservations department before booking to check the property is suitable. We would also remind guest to report any issues during their stay to the owner or Sykes and we will endevour to rectify any problems in a swift manner. Property Owner

  • "Could not fault the accommodation."

    Our first time using apartment 7, felt very homely, the beds where very comfortable and the fact that we didn’t need to take towels or bed linen was such an added bonus. On arrival there was fresh flowers, a bottle of wine, chocolates and biscuits waiting for us plus milk in the fridge!! What a welcome, the weather wasn’t brilliant but We didn’t book that!! I’ve already recommended this accommodation to a friend, we would definitely use this apartment again.
