  • "On arrival front of cottage scruffy with weeds, window boxes also dead with weeds!"

    No welcome package, (1st time ever on Sykes cottage) the room seems over cluttered and no cupboard for our food we had bought. The tiny conservatory at the back was full of tiny flies and the manhole cover banged when going to back door! TV not working, no folder with details of how things worked within the cottage or where the washer was? the fridge is tiny with big freezer section above, if any problem, no phone number! had to call Sykes who where extremely helpful and contacted the owner. Who in turn tried to explain how to get the TV on! still struggling, finally sorted the following afternoon! Meaning, having to wait in the cottage, instead of going to the beach! One thing you really expect is Comfort, sad to say this was completely missing here, the sofa under the stairs, when I sat on it I felt like I was sitting on the floor! Really struggling to get up off this sofa, the second one near TV was so hard and when 2 people were sitting on it , you sunk towards the centre! and again uncomfortable. Checking under cushions this sofa is a sofa bed! The stairs are high and narrow step and steep, prayed the rope on the wall was strong! The double bed was hard as nails! was in agony morning after, at this time I wanted to go home!!! We ended up sleeping on top of the duvet! but still awful weeks sleep! Plus a huge box at bottom of bed (why, taking up a lot space! empty space under the bunk beds) The shower unit could do with a good bleaching! Criccieth is lovely and we had the best weather, but would not be rebooking Menuchah cottage, really spoilt our week’s holiday.

    Hello Colleen, We are very sorry that you obviously did not enjoy your time at No. 3. We are unsure as to why there was no welcome package as this is something we have arranged with our cleaner and we are also very sorry that there was the problem with the TV. In retrospect perhaps we should have insisted on coming over on Saturday evening to resolve the problem rather than waiting as you agreed until someone local was available on the Sunday afternoon. All we can do is apologise again as we did when we saw you at the end of the week. Yours Mary & Dave Property Owner

  • "TV complicated for people not used to using a Now box."

    Gas cooker in rental accommodation not ideal. Bunk beds unsuitable for adults and uncomfortable to sleep on. Also undersheet dirty on top bunk. Room very bijoux. Staircase dangerous for older people especially at night using bathroom. Lean-to had leak when raining hard. One sofa rather low and uncomfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped, with both utensils and tableware. Basic food provisions came in handy. However, vacuum cleaner did not work properly. An attractively furnished cottage in a great position close to castle, beach and shops.

    Hi Heather, We are really sorry that you did not enjoy your time at No. 3 as much as we would have hoped you would. We apologise regarding the NowTV box which a regular guest kindly donated, we had not had a chance to look at it ourselves since we live in Manchester, and there is now information about it in the cottage. We are unclear as to why there would have been dirty bedding as our cleaner is very thorough. We will be replacing the sofa in October when we stay ourselves, We hope you would consider coming back and trying it out! :) Yours Mary & Dave Property Owner
