    “On arrival at the cottage we were disappointed to find the bedding was still dirty with stains and marks on the sheets, pillows and throws.”

    Thankfully we had our own spare bedding with us so used this instead. The settee was also filthy with food, dog hairs and rubbish in between the cushions. The cutlery was also still dirty. We clean Ed the cottage and hoovered the settee ourselves to get it to an acceptable standard. I seriously think the cleaner needs a few lessons in housekeeping.

    Thankfully we had our own spare bedding with us so used this instead. The settee was also filthy with food, dog hairs and rubbish in between the cushions. The cutlery was also still dirty. We clean Ed the cottage and hoovered the settee ourselves to get it to an acceptable standard. I seriously think the cleaner needs a few lessons in housekeeping. I did report this on an email to head office and also visited the office once it was open after the Sunday. There was nothing they could do as we had resolved the issue ourselves although we shouldn’t of had to. We paid for a service and didn’t really receive it with regards to finding the cottage clean and tidy. There was also no information booklet on things like what to do with the keys on departure or explaining how the appliances worked.

    Thank you for your feed back and we apologise for the inconvenience caused during your stay. We certainly would have sent a cleaner to re attend immediately upon your arrival, however we understand that the property should have been up to standard on arrival. We can confirm the welcome folder is inside the property and we have purchased new linen for the property. - Sykes owner relations
