  • "Very well laid out bungalow, kitchen well supplied with utensils, pots and pans etc and very comfortable main bedroom, bungalow is in a nice quiet location and only few minutes walk to sea or town centre."

    Only couple of minor quibbles, as raised by other reviewers the sofa is very low and can be an issue if used by someone with limited mobility and at this time of year it would make sense to either have hard flooring or a runner in the bedroom to stop the muddy paw prints on the cream carpet

    Thank you for the appreciative feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Honeybees. The improvements to the flooring have now been made and the sofa will stay with other higher seating to be available. Kind regards Property Owner

  • "We felt at home the moment we arrived at Honeybees Haven."

    Such as comfortable well equipped bungalow. We had very specific requirements for our stay. Our 16 year old dog is virtually blind with poor mobility and can easily get distressed in a different home. The open plan layout with no stairs was perfect for him and he settled in right away. In addition, our young dog is very reactive, so the secure private garden in a quiet cul-de-sac was perfect for him. As we were unable to eat out (due to our high maintenance fur babies!), the combined kitchen/living area was perfect for preparing meals. Easy walk to town and beach, we will definitely be back!

    Thank you so much for your appreciative feedback on Honeybees Haven and we are thrilled that your needs were fully met during your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Kind regards Property Owner

  • "We had a great stay here, we only used the master bedroom which was huge - all bedrooms had lovely clean linen on, the bed was very comfortable and so was the sofa, secure garden for the dogs and very well equipped all round."

    My only comment would be that is could do with a more thorough deep clean, the bathroom fell particularly grubby, crumbs on dining room chairs, and smarties/ dog chews under sofa. There was also cigarette ends and dog poo on grass from previous people which we picked up. We would recommend to others and stay here again as overall it was very comfortable and suitable for us. Great communication from Lou telling us the property was ready and we looked after the nesting duck in the garden!

    We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Honeybees Haven and thank you kind feedback duly noted.I’m sorry that you had to clear the mess left previously in the garden, this should have been cleared. We are looking to replace the carpets to laminate to help cleaning doggy prints from the garden. Finally, thank you for helping out with the Spring wildlife- those ducks are adorable and Hunstanton has them in abundance! Kind regards, Property Owner

  • "Generally speaking this property is in need of a good sort out."

    Decor furnishings and fittings are pretty poor, tired and worn. It is not a property I would be proud of, simply there to earn money. Definitely not good value and I would not recommend it. The gardens are rough and appear neglected. However the cleaner / property manager was very pleasant and did her utmost to make it work. The owners have some work to do.

    We are so disappointed that you found our home not to your taste as we do indeed take pride that it is a comfortable home from home for our guests to use while enjoying delightful Hunstanton. I’m glad you appreciated Louise’s help with your earlier check in.We are particularly proud of our colourful, wildlife garden so do not agree with your opinions on this. Kind regards, Property Owner

  • "This was our 2nd stay at honeybees haven,it’s a lovely bungalow ,has everything you could need, but needs a couple of things looking at last year we left feedback about saucepans needing replacing as the non stick is scratched and are still the same ones and needs utensils to match the pans it has metal ones , why the pans are scratched, and what let’s it down on comfort is the sofa it really needs replacing, it’s very low I bruised my leg on it this time ."

    Last year I had the twin room and it has no storage ,I didn’t unpack,could do with a bed taking out making it a single room with a wardrobe , chest of drawers and bedside table putting in like the other single room,this year I stayed in the single room and whilst I did unpack my bag using the drawers in the room the lovely big cupboard in the room has no rail so couldn’t hang anything up, it needs a rail. And the last improvement would be converting half the masssive cleaning room into a toilet, Because of the above things we are not returning to honeybees haven next year as we are going away for a week and need a property with a better sofa, BUT however would stay again for a short stay.

    Thank you for your feedback which is duly noted. There is under bed storage in the twin room and a triple wardrobe in the king room for adequate storage. The storage room is not massive and the cottage is not of a size to need more toilets facilities. The comfortable sectional sofa is standard height and so this doesn’t require replacing in our opinion. There are wooden utensils to use which will not scratch the pans. We accommodated an early check in and late exit at no extra cost to you and so am disappointed your stay didn’t live up to your requirements. Kind regards Property Owner

    Our fault, we lost it. We rang the emergency number, to be greeted with no help at all. 4 locksmiths declined later. We eventually got in after 21:00 four hours later. I'd really recommend each let under under the Sykes banner an affiliation with a 24hr locksmith. It was a very warm bungalow & sun trap. Suggest a couple of portable fans. Overall we will give it a 9 out of 10. It would've been a 10 out of 10 if it would've been for how we were treat key incident.

  • "Lovely bungalow on a residential street."

    Wonderfully comfortable beds and bedding, great kitchen and fabulous sofa. Really liked the open plan living and dining area. We had a few interactions with the local duck and her ducklings, she got stuck between the bungalow and the fence so my Dad had to move some old fence panels that were in the gap and were stopping her escaping. Unfortunately a couple of negative comments. I wouldn't usually say anything but as a family we felt it significant. The bathroom really needs some attention, thick dust on the back of the doors & skirting boards and limescale on both sets of taps. The storage for clothes is frustrating, why is there a wardrobe in the single room but no clothes rail inside? The twin room only has under bed drawers. The double room is huge, with fabulous storage but we were 2 households so I didn't want to use that wardrobe in someone else's room. The garden really needs tidying, the grass hadn't been cut for a while and that made it hard to do a pick up after the dog. There were alot of weeds and it just made using the garden less welcoming. For someone with mobility issues, navigating these was just a little awkward. The next door bungalow, which initially we thought was being refurbished, really is a sight for sore eyes and let down the whole relaxed feel you want from a holiday let. When the temperature gets higher I would imagine the unpleasant odour will get worse. It does look like some of the decorating hasn't been completed, for instance there are nails in walls but no pictures. Be aware, if taking a dog, that access to the garden is through the double bedroom. We had a pleasant week but I'm afraid we wouldn't go back.

  • "The garden let the accommodation down."

    Apparently it was kept unkempt to encourage the bees and insects, but it made it not a place that was inviting and not user friendly, the lawn was long and lumpy and by the end of the week the grass had grown seed heads, a health hazard for hay fever sufferers. The flower beds were haphazardly planted and were not planted with colourful nectar full plants to encourage the bees and insects. It felt inappropriate to decide to leave the garden in a mess for holiday accommodation.
