Accuracy of the listing

14 Customer Reviews

  • "When we booked this property it advertised as with hot tub."

    This was removed and the owners informed sykes to amend property details... they did not. Consequently we were not informed as to this change only a few weeks before our stay...despite the owners informing sykes earlier in the year. Our stay was in September months after the the owners had informed sykes. We did get a discount from the owners vi's Sykes but through out sykes weee adamant it was the responsibility of the owner as our contract was with them. My main concern is that sykes despite there administration error would accept no responsibility failed to respond to my emails. The cottage was lovely as we're the owners but I do feel we were all let down by sykes.

  • "The listing of property having a hot tub and then not was frustrating - but a discount was agreed."

    Hence low score on accuracy - which hopefully will be sorted by now. The location is really lovely and the shop and pub were useful to have a 5 minute walk away. Do book the pub though for food, it was hard to get in. The property was clean and as described. The stairs are a little hard to handle so just check the pictures before you book. The headroom in the bedroom gets a bit much after a week. The bed was very comfortable and bedding and towels were good quality. The kitchen could do with some more glasses. Drinking out of plastic is not for me (especially as no hot tub to worry about!). Only two wine glasses, no flutes or gin glasses. The lounge was comfortable enough but some lovely easy chairs would have been nice not just one sofa. The bathroom really needs some Shelves in the shower and somewhere to put stuff . It has no natural ventilation so unfortunately it smells damp a lot of the time. It was my least fave part of staying at the Mill.

  • "Please see my email with my concerns."

    No hot tub, owners had already informed Sykes before I booked but the description was not updated and nobody contacted me. Found out on arrival at the property. Would not have chosen this accommodation if description had been accurate.

    We are truly sorry for any disappointment regarding the hot tub no longer available at the property and that the advert had not been amended correctly by Sykes Cottages when the owner advised us earlier in the year. We have corrected the advert and laised with you to resolve your complaint and we have also apologised to the owner for any distress caused to her and her guests. Property Owner

  • "A lovely clean cottage, located ideally for exploring the local countryside."

    The owners when they knew I was celebrating a 'big birthday' decorated the cottage and were willing to help and arrange deliveries with local businesses for my husband. They recommended local walks and places of interest we could visit.A fabulous break made even better by the glorious weather.

  • "The Mill was a perfect location to explore the Cardigan Bay coastline."

    The property is compact but fine for 2 people plus a dog. It was useful to have an enclosed courtyard so we could let our dog out without worrying she would escape. The Daffodil pub is just a 5 minute walk away and serves excellent food plus its dog friendly : it is popular so you do need to book.

  • "From start to finish our holiday was brilliant."

    Me and my boyfriend stayed for a week and thoroughly enjoyed every minute.The mill is so well kept and clean and there are so many appliances and facilities for anything and everything!!The farm that the mill is on is beautifully hidden away so very peaceful yet is not too far from the village and daffodil pub which is a lovely popular place to eat. The hot tub was really good as well which added a nice touch. The owners were very helpful and friendly and were never too far away if you needed anything. Overall a brilliant stay would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a peaceful break away:)

  • "The Mill cottage is situated in a gorgeous location."

    It is so tranquil and peaceful that you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the countryside, however the small local shop and great pub are just a short walk away. There are many lovely local walks yet all the beaches and coastal walks we wanted to go to were less than a 30 min drive away. The beaches were beautiful, many dog friendly and quiet. The cottage itself is beautifully appointed inside with everything we needed to have a relaxing holiday. The fuuly enclosed private courtyard at the back of the house was a delightful suntrap from morning to evening. Sitting in a bubbling hottub with the sun setting waiting for the bbq to warm up was divine! It was also perfect for our dog to wander out and sunbathe in without us worrying about her getting out. An important note about my review is that we had gorgeous weather every day and went outside of school holidays! The cottage description of the stairs is accurate.

    Front door could do with some blinds or curtains.
