  • "This is the 2nd time we have visited this property for a holiday."

    It is comfortable and clean and contains everything you would want for a weeks holiday. It is also convenient to walk into Cromer and it is also in a good location to visit other interesting places by car

  • "The only thing missing was wifi."

    However,I knew that before booking and this is only a very minor gripe.

    There is working Wi-Fi at the property that other clients have enjoyed Sorry that this comment was necessary. Should clients be unable to connect for whatever reason, please make owner aware at the time of stay. Thanks for comment. We are glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise. Property Owner

  • "Location perfect property was adequate but as previously mentioned no freezer when one listed both blinds still not sorted bed still hard and really sort the shower curtain out its bad!"

    !! But on a positive clean in general and flowers and goodies a nice touch!!

    Comments respected, a fridge freezer is in the property which seem adequate for most for a weeks stay... will however consider supplying a small stand alone freezer. Shower curtains are nearly new but have now been replaced with a glass screen and a bath grab rail for safety. . Property Owner

  • "The house was in a great location, quiet but close to the town and beach."

    The bed was a little on the hard side for us but then no-one's bed is like ones own. The shower curtain needs replacing and the bath plug needs attention but otherwise nothing at all to complain about. We would go again.

  • "The standard of accommodation was shocking."

    The blinds in the kitchen were like they had been found in a skip. They were old and had a considerable number of strips missing. The blinds in the living room, were stuck together with masking tape and the shower rail was stuck to the ceiling with masking tape. Overall the standard of accommodation, was shockingly poor, when you consider that I paid £1067.00.The property was more of a cheap rental property, where the landlord barely maintained the property and charged an absolute fortune to the renter. I work as a nurse, not looking for either appreciation or thanks. These hours are long and hard, wearing PPE equipment, as well as masks for twelve hours. So when I come away, having spent £1067.00, I expect a high standard of accommodation and not feel that I have been fleeced. The holiday was over priced in the first place, with owners exploiting an over subscribed market for holiday accommodation in the UK. In addition, fish and chips at £26.00, beer at £5.10 a pint, it left a nasty taste in my mouth. I would like a refund, which I would like to negotiate. Overall, I am disgusted with this property and would never book this property again, or use Sykes again. I await your response.

    All feedbacks are welcomed , however this feedback is inconsistent with the previous customers comments. The conditions stated are also inconsistent as the property is frequently checked by a third party and maintained to a very good standard . Cannot comment about prices of beer and fish and chips. Hope that this customers finds satisfaction wherever else they choose to have their stay. This property is obviously that suited to them. Property Owner

  • "The house was as described."

    Great position we walked into Cromer and/or East Runton Beach every day. If you walk down the hill and take 1st right Howards Hill West Close, through the flats and turn left down Shipden Avenue to the cliff path the hill is not so steep to Cromer. We only used the car once to Morston Quay to go on a seal boat trip. Good easy parking outside. Lovely treats on arrival fresh flowers, milk, tea, coffee and goodies. Thank you for a lovely stay .

  • "This was a terraced house not a cottage."

    The sea views were in the distance over garages and houses and only from the upstairs back bedroom. The views from the kitchen diner and porch were sheds, garages and the neighbours full washing line every day!! The bathroom had a mouldy dirty shower curtain which I had to wash immediately and there were traces of mould in the tile grouting. There was no freezer as advertised just an ice box in the fridge this did not affect us but could have been a problem for a family. On the plus side there were lovely flowers on the dining table and tea, coffee, biscuits and milk left for us on arrival. The bed linen was clean. The walk from the house was some distance from the town with steep hills.

  • "House is in a quiet location while still being close to Cromer centre."

    A Morrisons supermarket is close by. House is well equipped, the only thing I'd say that is a slight negative is that the back bedroom faces East and therefore gets the early sun could do with thicker curtains or a blind. We had a lovely week there and would recommend it. An unexpected and lovely touch was the welcome pack of milk, coffee, tea, biscuits and cake, along with a beautiful big vase of flowers.

  • "Howard Hill West was a really lovely two bedroom house, we had lovely fresh flowers when we arrived with tea, coffee, tea cakes and milk in fridge."

    The whole house was very clean and comfortable and much larger than it looked in the photo"s. Both bedrooms were a good size with huge wardrobe space. The living room had 2 large, very comfortable, settee's and a large TV, the kitchen very well equipped with a nice dining area. The location was ideal, a 10-15 minutes walk to town and beach and in a lovely quiet area. We loved our stay and would definitely return to this lovely house.

  • "The cottage at Howards Hill West was comfortable, well furnished and clean, but it was let down on three points."

    1) the 5 non stick saucepans were very badly scratched and could not be used for food production - we actually bought a small saucepan for our use. 2) you don't expect to have to buy washing up liquid and toilet rolls, which we had to do, when you hire a holiday cottage. 3) there were no cleaning products for the toilet or kitchen and again we had to buy theses whilst there. These may seem minor quibbles but they are things that we have never come across in our other Sykes cottages.

  • "Nice holiday home and pretty comfortable, quite annoyingly though the door to the main bedroom doesn't latch so if you want the window open at night you have to put something heavy behind the door or it just keeps opening!"

    I'd say the beach isn't a short stroll either, more like a 15 minute walk, fine for us as young enough but not fine if you can't walk far, fairly minor gripes though as a good house all in all

  • "This cottage is ideally situated in Cromer."

    It is only a short walk to get to the sea (which can be seen from the dining area and one of the bedrooms) and it is only a short walk into the town. The cottage itself is very comfortable and I was very pleased with the parking area behind the cottage because it meant my car was off the road.
