  • "Had a great week comfortable double bed would come back."

    Close to the Marsh walks we enjoyed the long walks around there

  • "We found the property very comfortable and had a very enjoyable time."

    There were two small items we would like to mention. The lack a a freezer section in the top of the fridge, this is a necessity in a self catering property, not everyone can afford to eat out every day and having to shop every day takes time out of your holiday. Also were were not able yo use our freezer bag as wew could not freeze the blocks. The second item was the fact that there were two wardrobes in the main bedroom and not one in the second bedroom. The storage cupboard in the second bedroom could have been in the other bedroom making room for a wardrobe. This is for the site, there were three washing machines in the laundry and no dryer. We were there for two weeks and blessed with hot weather but wet weather would have made it difficult to dry anything, especially families who may be there with young children. Overall it was a very nice holiday but these small things in self catering properties do help

    Glad you enjoyed your holiday at Marsh Bungalow. We have visited the laundrette and found in operational order two tumble dryers and one washing machine. Property Owner

  • "Locating chalet from instructions was confusing."

    Would of been nice if both hand soap & washing up liquid had been topped up.

    Thank you for your comments , additional signage has been installed to show where the bungalow is. Property Owner

  • "Overall we had a great stay."

    It should be noted that the on-site pool although “available to all” has an extra charge for some guests, including people staying at Marsh Bungalow. (Family of two adults and two children cost £19 and the pool is small and very tired looking). There is no mobile coverage for Giffgaff phones but the WIFI is sufficient for most needs. There is no freezer in the property which lets it down, not even a freezer box at the top of the fridge which we found surprising. Granted there is no mention of a freezer in the description but we wrongly assumed there would be a small box for ice at least in the fridge. All other facilities in the property however were well kept and clean. We ate at the on-site cafe/bar one evening and had an enjoyable evening. The food and staff were great. All together we would definitely stay again.

  • "The property was lovely."

    But the twin room (where I slept) had a very damp smell. It was very unpleasant, especially at night when sleeping. I had to keep my clothes in the living room so they did not pick up the smell. Also the advert said parking, but it was not clear that the parking was not outside the bungalow but a walk to a car park. This was sometimes difficult for my dad as he has limited mobility.

    Thank you for your comments. Upon further investigation we have established that smell was caused by a blocked drain in the property next to Marsh Bungalow. Once the park were made aware of the issue the problem drains were cleared. If the guests had contacted us when they first noticed the smell we would have had someone visit the property to assist and the smell issue may have been cleared sooner. The details for the property state "Off-road parking available in parks car parks”, we are sorry if you thought this meant outside the property, You can park on the side of park roads whilst dropping off and picking up guests. We hope the issues raised didn't detract from your stay at Marsh Bungalow. Property Owner

  • "We loved the bungalow it is well looked after, The bed was comfortable, The bungalow has everything needed to cook, We had our breakfasts outside on the table every morning (it's a suntrap)."

    The only issue which wasn't a problem for me but my partner would have liked to have had a hand rail in the shower. It was a pleasure to stay in the bungalow, We both said we would go back to the bungalow on future holidays.

    We are glad you enjoyed your holiday and look forward to welcoming you back. The outside area is a lovely sun trap even on a cool autumn morning Property Owner

  • "When we arrived at Marsh Bungalow the first thing we noticed from the outside was that there was no decked area."

    This was contrary to the description given on the details. However the Bungalow was clean so this, although disappointing was not going to affect our holiday too much. The bed was really comfortable and the bedding had a lovely fresh smell but pet owners beware. We have a young dog who is well behaved but unfortunately he got onto the bed unnoticed by us and left behind some dirty marks. I was devastated and embarrassed by this and more than happy to pay for replacement bedding, however, I have been charged for two bed sets at £49.99 each. Upon asking the owners why they needed to buy two when only one was soiled, I have not had a satisfactory answer. This Bungalow should not be advertised as pet friendly, particularly as the bedding is white. I know my dog should not have been on the furniture but unfortunately as most dog owners will admit, these things happen. This is definitely not pet friendly.

    Sorry you were disappointed upon arrival to find no decking ,the pictures on the website clearly shows the bungalow and its exterior.The decking area is actually the patio area outside the porch where the garden furniture is located. We will ask for the description to be made more accurate. With regard to the bedding our caretaker tried to clean the linen prior to asking you to pay for the cost of one new set at £49.99. We consider our bungalow to be very pet friendly, as we too have a dog that stays there with us , like any pet owner we accept that accidents might happen and if this is the case as responsible owners we all need to pay for what our pets might get up too when our backs are turned. We pride ourselves on providing a home that is cleaned to a very high standard and white bed linen is all part of the look and ambiance of the bungalow. We have since spoken with Sykes Holiday Cottages who have confirmed an error was made in charging you in full for two bed sets and they will be in touch to correct this. Property Owner

    The facilities were ample. It was nice to sit outside having a coffee. We loved the proximity to the Broads, marina & park. Great for dog walking.

  • "This property was spotlessly clean and the walk in shower excellent for my disabled husband."

    A grab rail fitted to the inside of the shower would be a good addition. All the appliances, crockery and utensils were of a very high standard and helpful information on their use provided. Our only disappointment was the poor quality of the double bed linen. It looked very colour coordinated but being 100% polyester with no cotton content at all, meant with the hot weather we had, that sleeping was very uncomfortable. I think with the high standard the owners are trying to achieve at Marsh bungalow, it was disappointing not to have good quality bedding and is perhaps something that could easily be rectified. In every other way the property, location and our stay was excellent.

    Thank you so much for your very helpful feedback, particularly surrounding the bedding which will now be replaced with a 100% based cotton product to resolve this issue. We hope to see you back again. Property Owner
