  • "Hi, To say that you house is “well maintained” is stretching the truth I feel."

    Your house has the following issues: 1. An open fire but no gloves for the door handle that gets very hot – health and safety issue. 2. You advertise a BBQ – there is an old kettle style BBQ with broken legs that sits on the floor in the gravelled area of your garden - false advertising. 3. There was a previous guests or your own dogs poo bag (full) in the garden on the steps to the decked area – health and safety issue. 4. There is black mould growing on the wall / ceiling in the downstairs bathroom, see attached images – health and safety issue. 5. There is black mould growing on the blinds in the downstairs bathroom, see attached images – health and safety issue. 6. There is black mould growing on the shower head in the downstairs bathroom, see attached images – health and safety issue. 7. There is black mould growing on the blinds in the “family bedroom” upstairs, see attached images – health and safety issue. 8. The pull out bed mattress is riddled with stains – cheap owners / poor management. 9. The double bed mattress is riddled with stains – cheap owners / poor management. 10. The washing machine drawer is full of black and orange mould, see attached images – health and safety issue. 11. The shower water hose in the family bathroom upstairs was covered in orange mould slime – cheap owners / poor management / health and safety issue. 12. The shower head in the family bathroom was covered in black mould, see attached images – health and safety issue. 13. The master bed was not made up (this is a repeat complaint from earlier in the year, are you so cheap that you only keep one set of bedding for this room?) on our arrival – cheap owners / poor management. 14. The windows in all of the upstairs rooms show signs of having blown / seals have gone allowing water and wind ingress – very cheap owners / poor management. 15. The double plug socket behind the door in the family bedroom is broken, this should not be in use yet it was available to use – health and safety issue, cheap owners / poor management. 16. Double plug socket in family bedroom covered by bedding and mattress with a lamp plug in it and turned on – cheap owners / poor management, health and safety issue. 17. Cleaners cupboard stank of damp – cheap owners / poor management, health and safety issue. 18. Broken chair in decked area – cheap owners / poor management. Your house has had most of these complaints before so I should not have been surprised! I guess some people never learn do they. I will be seeking a full refund from Sykes and Mastercard. No wonder your feedback email address has been cancelled!

    Thank you very much for your feedback. We appreciate the time taken to send your observations which have been taken on board and highlighted to our maintenance/changeover teams. We have undertaken a full refresh of the property since your stay, including painting, new bedding and other ancillary items/furniture throughout the property. We hope we can welcome you back in the future. The Hall Family Property Owner

  • "This is a brilliantly laid out house in a fantastic location but has some issues which cannot be overlooked."

    The sofas in the lounge and the outdoor furniture was rather uncomfortable. The cleanliness left a lot to be desired with the floor being quite dirty, one of the upstairs mattresses had yellow stains on it and the provided barbecue was not fit to use (had to buy one). Also the garden had sharp metal sticking out of the grass from an old clothesline post which had being removed. We had to cover this with some pots to prevent injury to the children in our party. In essence this house has the potential to be amazing, rather than good, if the required attention to detail is carried out.

    We thank you for your feedback - we have since changed the cleaner looking after the property and continue to undertake regular inspections following changeovers to ensure that the property is presented to a high standard. We have also replaced a number of mattresses throughout the property, introduced a new barbecue for the decking area and assessed the garden for any dangers. Property Owner

  • "The property is lovely, well maintained and in a great location."

    Possibly a few things to update would be the pillows and sofa just purely for comfort . Shared driveway would be a bit tricky if there were 4 cars , we were fine as no one was in the other property. I would still book this cottage again though as overall it was in an ideal location , very quiet and not overlooked which was great when using the hot tub !

    We thankyou for your feedback and have implemented a new alternative pillow option for each bed. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner

The attractive harbour village of Abersoch is situated on the Llyn Peninsula in a region of Wales renowned for its outstanding scenery and varied walking. The village, situated between two glorious bays, is one of the most popular sailing venues in North Wales and important sailing regattas are held there throughout the summer months. Numerous shops cater for the tourist as well as pubs, restaurants and cafes. There are also opportunities for golfers as there is a course just outside the village and horse riding facilities are also available nearby.

The long, sandy Abersoch Main Beach is probably the most popular beach in the area. There is a wonderful selection of beaches in the surrounding area of the Llyn Peninsula, including the beautiful and often quiet Porth Ceriad, with it's high cliffs, and sandy Porth Oer ("Whistling Sands").
