    “We had another lovely stay at Biskey View and are likely to return next year as this is our 4th visit and the location and overall facilities meet our requirements perfectly, We stay in Sykes cottages all around England and, although I realise it is not a requirement, all the properties we have visited supply a welcome pack ranging from tea.”

    coffee and milk to fresh eggs and a bottle of wine, Biskey View used to have tea, coffee, milk and biscuits which are great when you arrive after a journey but this time there was nothing. The blind in the bathroom is in desperate need of replacement as it is completely covered in black mould. ...

    coffee and milk to fresh eggs and a bottle of wine, Biskey View used to have tea, coffee, milk and biscuits which are great when you arrive after a journey but this time there was nothing. The blind in the bathroom is in desperate need of replacement as it is completely covered in black mould. The two issues that were a concern were the bedding on the double bed and the cleaners. Although the bottom sheet had obviously been washed there was a large unpleasant stain that was not nice to sleep on. There is a note made up of stickers on the door reminding you of a 10 o'clock checkout and we are always away at that time. On this visit the cleaners were knocking on the door at 9.55 just as we were leaving. They were pleasant but I feel this was unnecessary as then they wouldn't come into the property, despite us actually leaving as they knocked with coats on and final bags in hand, but returned to sit in their car. It made us feel as quite uncomfortable as if we had done something wrong. I don't want this to be printed as I realise they are simple issues that can easily be put right and don't want it to seem like a bad review. As I started by saying we would hope to return again next year but felt that they were issues that needed mentioning. Thanks
