"New pots for cooking And dishwasher doesn’t clean And new tins for oven"
"Do not book here and certainly do not use Sykes."
Property only superficially clean and safety issues identified. Could only stay for one day of a full weeks holiday due to concerns about health.
"The house was very well provided, very clean and on the whole very comfortable."
As we were 4 adults needing 3 bedrooms one used the bottom bunk which was not as comfortable. It was good to have a second toilet and walk in shower but it was not a wet room as on the listing. We were advised to bring tea towel, oven gloves, and laundry detergent. So we were pleasantly surprised to find these provided as well as aprons, washing up material. So many thanks but it would be good to update listings to say these are provided.
"A really nice stay."
We found in the house every little detail we needed. Thanks for everything,
"The house was great, it had everything that we could need and more."
The reclining chairs were very welcome after a busy day. The double bedrooms were spacious with comfy beds. The kitchen dining room was light and so well equipped. We were thankful for the welcome pack and enjoyed picking tomatoes from the lovely garden. The location was in a quiet street and not too far from the town. We had a really good stay here.
"Great house and garden in good location."
Garden was lovely and we loved the fresh tomatoes! Really enjoyed our stay here, however there are a few things I feel I need to raise. 1. Drinking glasses - very limited drinking glasses in the house, could definitely do with some more tumbler style. 2. Curtains are definitely needed in back and kids bedrooms. Sun was streaming in back bedroom at sunrise. 3. Hallway light - automatically clicks on and off day and night. 4. Bedsprings are very prominent on mattress on the bottom bunk in kids room. 5. Never found the rack for the bbq 6. No Sky TV as listed. 7. There was also a query before we went whether there was a hot tub which I revived mixed advice on from Sykes when I queried it as it was still on the property description, just to confirm there is no hot tub at the property. Overall had a lovely stay. Many thanks
"Great location, welcome pack was a nice touch and a surprise."
The house was comfortable and spacious. Lots of family related items which were useful. The installation of properly fitted bedroom curtains would be valuable, blinds alone are not sufficient to block out light.
"There was a hot tub listed in the particulars but no sign at the property."
"A++++++ will book again"
"Let me described it in one word (Home From Home)."
Beautiful and clean house with nice garden. Lovely environment with lots of fun ( The Beach, Adventure island, Game House).
"Enjoyable stay, couldn't turn heating down though, especially in bedroom."
Everything else was fine though, just a pity weather wasn't.
"The property was really much nicer than we anticipated."
The owners were very kind and friendly. I would definitely recommend to others! Thank you for a wonderful stay at 98!
"Ninety Eight is a great place to stay - it was so nice of the host to provide 'Welcome' refreshments on our arrival."
Despite the heatwave, we had a very pleasant stay as air conditioning units were available in the bedrooms. It was lovely to enjoy the cool of the evening sitting in the beautiful garden. Everything had been thoughtfully prepared. Hope to stay at this lovely house again sometime soon. Thank you to the property owner & all involved in the upkeep of the house.
