“The accommodation was dated and generally in need of a very deep clean e.”
G. I had to scrub very badly stained teaspoons before use and other crockery items.
G. I had to scrub very badly stained teaspoons before use and other crockery items. The sofa was impossibly uncomfortable to sit on so much so the floor was preferable. The TV was fitted so high on the wall and at such an angle to the sofa that if I watched it for a couple of hours it resulted in an achey neck and back. We have booked this type of holiday let twice a year for many years and this is the worst accommodation we have experienced, so much so that we left a day early.
We apologise that the teaspoons were not scrubbed and cleaned to our usual standards. We have listened to feedback about the sofa and we are lowering the position of the tv to make viewing more comfortable. The apartment is undergoing refurbishment and a deep clean for the coming season, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. - Sykes owner relations
“On entering the property there was a musty smell.”
The stairs up to the rooms were dark and narrow. The sofa was very uncomfortable to sit on for any length of time and the TV is too high on the wall . Basic kitchen equipment such as a grater, frying pan would of been good.The kitchen area was badly designed.We did not feel at all comfortable and did not feel we could relax totaly. The whole place needs a good clean and refurbishment. Never have we been anywhere with a great list of rules. This place is very overpriced for what it is, it was so bad we left a day early.I have no idea who writes the description for the advert on the website but it was totally wrong.
Thank you for letting us know about the musty smell. We have investigated this and have been unable to find any smell, but we are ensuring we freshen all rooms with spray prior to guest's checking in. We are sorry you found the sofa uncomfortable, and we are lowering the height of the tv. It's a shame you didn't highlight your issues at the time, as we would have been able to help, for instance we could have shown you where the frying pan is kept, and provided a grater. The property is being refurbished for the 2020 season, and we appreciate your feedback. Sykes owner relations
“Booked this holiday for myself, son and granddaughter; the property was perfectly acceptable for three people occupying however the sofa bed was not particularly comfortable to sleep on and we resorted to a camp bed.”
There was some confusion with the booking as to the age of my granddaughter, the owner was expecting a child under two but quickly rectified this by providing extra bedding. Although not a problem for us, I would not recommend this for toddlers due to the stairs, which did not have a stair gate. Listing implied there was use of a fully enclosed garden, the front garden was available to sit in and was fairly private being enclosed on three sides. It was not totally enclosed and was close to a road so again not suitable for small children to play in. The property is situated in a beautiful location close to the Broads and and it's many delights. We enjoyed our stay.
Please accept my apology for any confusion. The sofa bed is of modern design but I accept it may not suit everyone's taste. I'm sorry you were disappointed with the layout of the garden, I will try and have it better described. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Sykes owner relations
“The accommodation was a semidetached bungalow with an upstairs conversion.”
It was shabby, grubby and uncomfortable. The bathroom was very small with a tiny corner sink above which was a rack on which one bumped ones head as it was so close to the sink. The settee was extremely uncomfortable so it was impossible to watch the TV. The pottery and cutlery were a mish mash of uncoordinated items.The sheet and quilt cover were really creased not ironed at all. There was nowhere to sit outside and to exit the property one had to brush past the owners two vehicles to get to our car on the roadside. As one entered there was a musty smell in keeping with the general uncleanliness of the property. All in all a disappointing experience definitely not worth the price we paid.
The accommodation is the entire upper floor, stairs and part of the hall of a normal semi detached four bedroom chalet bungalow of which there are many in the UK. The size of the shower room and positioning of the toiletries rack is normal for this style of accommodation, I’ve stayed in similar myself. The sofa bed is of modern design about three years old though I accept it may not be to everybody’s taste. With regard to the cutlery and crockery they are from standard design patterns though past guests may have added one or two items over the last year or so but this helps to make the place homely. There is an outside patio set with three seats in a sheltered private corner in the front garden. It was unfortunate that week I was in possession of an extra vehicle but this was shortly afterwards disposed of and there is now a clear walkway to the entrance. The accommodation is thoroughly serviced before the arrival of every guest and treated with spray fragrance in every room. The accommodation has been refurbished for the coming season.

“The accommodation was in a really good position for sightseeing and activities,literally 5 mins to Salhouse Broad where you could go on nature walks,hire a canoe,cycle or just watch the wildlife.”
Two local pubs,I can recommend the Fur & Feather just past Salhouse broad which has its own brewery where you can go on tour or just relax in the beer garden and sample their own ales.The food was very enjoyable too. Wroxham itself is only 3 miles away and is a very lively bustling town with lots of shops and eating places.There are lots of boats to hire for exploring the broads and we went on a guided boat trip for 1.5hrs which was lovely. The property itself was very clean and comfortable.The owner Graham was very helpful and there were lots of information leaflets and games supplied if required.The most welcoming part on arrival was to find a jug of fresh cold milk,chocolate biscuits and bananas,which was a really nice surprise.There was also a very good supply of tea,coffee,sugar, several condiments and even washing up liquid. I would definitely recommend a stay here.
“Well maintained property, easy to find, a welcome biscuit and banana, jug of milk in fridge and tea,coffee, sugar.”
Owner very helpful and friendly. Would use again
