  • "We booked knowing there was a shed as we were bringing our cycles, however we were unable to get down the entry or open the gate."

    Fortunately we were able to store cycles in front hallway without blocking entrance. Other than a wornout airer we had a lovely week away. Must say weather helped.

    Rest was ok. It was nice that we could have the key contacless, so we could arrive at our own time. Environment is a pleasant surprise.

  • "The property internally suffered from very dusty places ie."

    bathroom cabinet, very dirty kitchen light. There were flies everywhere. The utility doors did not open hence we could not use the washing machine or the freezer. The external back yard had garden furniture which was covered in cobwebs, we don't expect to have to clean a place when we arrive to staying in it. The outside front needs a bit of TLC. Overly priced for the property.

    A great base from which to go visit local nature reserves and to walk the Norfolk Coast path. A dustpan and brush would have been useful but other than that well equipped with instructions on how to use appliances which was great.

  • "Very comfortable, clean, well equipped flat."

    Ideal location for exploring Hunstanton and the surrounding area. There were a couple of areas needing improvement: the side access to the garden area was unusable due to the accumulation of bird droppings and the outside of the windows were very dirty which spoilt the overall feel of the flat.

  • "What a lovely surprise this apartment was!"

    Booked last minute with Sykes who were amazing at helping out with queries. The apartment is in a perfect location for us, and the bonus of having a generous sized parking space on the driveway, which fitted our large 4x4 with ease. The apartment was great! On the ground floor so has the added benefit of the back yard space with the sun in the morning. It was a very cute space with a large double bedroom (could fit another put up bed in there as well if required) and a double sofa bed in the lounge. Kitchen and bathroom were beautifully fitted out and had everything you could need for your stay including essentials in the cupboards for cooking. The owners were very quick to resolve a small query at the beginning of our stay which was most appreciated. All in all, it was great! We will stay here again in the future.

    Communal hallway inside main front door very dirty, dirty carpet, cobwebs etc. Paint flaking off the wall inside flat door, windows very dirty, lots of cobwebs above blinds in bedroom. Shower head dirty and only operates at lukewarm temperature. Outside garden area full of weeds and grass uncut, garden furniture covered in bird muck. Utility room unswept and washing machine not clean. Lovely location, such a shame about the cleanliness.

  • "Lovely Flat in a great location."

    Good to have extras on the tv. If I had to give a bad comment it would be the bed, It was to low for us and not enough support in the pillows (But each to their own).

  • "The location of the apartment was excellent."

    Facilities both in the apartment and nearby was also superb. The only drawback was the bed. Despite a very spacious bedroom the bed is a standard double but with the mattress set within the bed frame with a footboard it meant you felt squashed. If you are 6ft taller or more this may be even more of an issue. The bed is also very very low and would perhaps present difficulties for less able visitors. We found the mattress somewhat uncomfy but this may be just us. Other than that a great place to stay.

    Having its own parking place is great. Its right outside the front door. The flat is well placed for the town. Many a day were got back to the flat in the dark and found having the outside light very useful, it meant we could get things out of the boot and then see the steps to get into the flat. Thank you for putting up a light. Also I have to say the heating in the flat is very good, when we got back at the end of the day we put it on and it did not take long to heat up the flat, we were very comfortable. We are looking forward to our next stay.

    Hopefully next year. Its nice and comfortable. We love having two settee with plenty of room around them. The place is clean and fresh. I would like to make a sugestion. When we came back in the dark I could not see the steps. So I think a light that comes on as you arrive would be good. As the place has three flats i am not sure how you get on to arrange this.

    Thank you for the feedback, We are glad you had a great stay. I have arranged an electrician to repair the outside light this week. Property Owner

  • "The location of the flat is prefect, literally a small walk to the shops and the sea."

    The flat has some great facilities, new kitchen and bathroom, however the cleanliness was a let down. I had to get the hoover out not long after arriving as there were lots of hairs in the carpet which wasn't great with the kids playing on the floor. Also the sofa needed a hoover as when we were looking for the sofa bed again bits and hairs under the cushions. The instructions say the bedding for the sofa bed should be in the wooden box in the living room, but it wasn't I had to find it myself, could be worth updating the instructions or making sure it's where it says it is. The sofa bed not very comfy so bear that in mind if 4 adults are staying. Someone previously mentioned the kettle leaking and we had the same issue, could be worth a upgrade. Also I couldnt find a pizza cutter which would be useful. We had a great week and a great beach to visit was brancaster, beautiful beach and plenty of parking. Location is prefect and the flat is great with the added bonus of a drive to park on. The flat has most things you need just the cleanliness that let it down for us.

    Thank you for taking the time to give feedback on your stay with us. I am sorry to hear you found some issues with the cleaning. I have discussed in detail with Sykes and our cleaners. I have expressly made clear to Sykes that we do not accept pets with our bookings/or visiting pets and I will make sure more signs are put up that we do not accept any animals. I am always available to help improve anything with your stay. We did have a pizza cutter and I'm sorry this was missing. I will replace and add an additional kettle. We have instructed the cleaners to leave the bedding in an obvious position for the future. Property Owner
