  • "Lovely house [can’t really call it a cottage]."

    Clean and with all the essentials. Even with body boards in the shed. Can’t beat riding the [cold] waves, quick [cold] shower then 200yds back into the hot tub to chill. Just a blind for the Velux window in the upstairs bedroom to keep the morning sun at bay is all that is needed. We let the owners know about that through Sykes and they are sorting it.

  • "We had a very enjoyable week at Cae Mawr, which is well located just 5 minutes walk from the beach, and within driving distance of so many activities."

    The house is light and airy with plenty of space for the 8 of us. The beds were really comfortable as were both seating areas. It was good to have the outside table and chairs at which we could sit and enjoy the spectacular views of Snowdonia (only 6 chairs though). The house was generally clean but the skirting boards were dusty - this did not impact on our holiday. A few bits missing from the kitchen - only 4 wine glasses and no large dishes in which to cook and serve meals for a large group. Overall, however, an excellent week at Cae Mawr.

  • "Hi, We arrived Friday 3pm to find the hot tub not heating up."

    I then spent most of my afternoon on the phone to Sykes operatives (who were very helpful) trying to get hold of the owner to either talk us through turning the hot tub on, or arranging an engineer to attend. An engineer was apparently arranged for 7pm to investigate the hot tub but no one turned up? This was obviously very frustrating as by the time we realised no one was coming it was 830pm and with a baby and dog etc it was too late to go out for dinner. The next morning we found the hot tub to be operating correctly so it was obviously not turned on early enough by the owner resulting in us not being able to use it for 1 out of the 2 nights we were there. This was very disappointing. Also we felt a Basic fire starting kit should be provided. Great location, fantastic views, good facilities. Very enjoyable stay.

  • "Fantastic property worked really well for us."

    Shame the cleanliness let it down. Red wine had been spilt on the kitchen worktop and was all underneath the glass chopping board and the tea and coffee canisters. So they hadn’t been moved to clean. I spent an hour and a half cleaning the oven it was disgustingly filthy. The hot tub cover had just been stuffed in the shed and not reported to the owners that it needed to be strapped down. I reported it to Sykes and it was all sorted the same day great service. The dirt under the sofas was awful. The cleaning cupboard looked as though everything had just been chucked in. For such a lovely property it would be such a shame not to keep the standard up to reflect the good quality of the fixtures and fittings.

  • "I don't usually leave feedback but feel you may benefit from it at this property."

    Day 1 and within 40mins my wife was locked in the upstairs ensuite for over an hour as we waited for your maintenance guys to return to try and free her. There was no actual lock on the door but the maintenance lad said the mechanism was just in pieces inside it and that's why the handle wasn't working. Luckily, it wasn't one of the children. Turns out it was pointless her attempting to use the bathroom anyway as there was no basics left such as a toilet roll or handwash/soaps, there is usually at least 1 of each left for new arrivals but not at this property, we had a shopping delivery arranged for 4pm so we had to wait until then to use the bathrooms. There was no welcome pack as you get with 99% of places telling you the basics of the property (or so we thought) such as WiFi code, things to do locally etc, it turns out this was buried in the bottom of the drawer of the coffee table which we didn't find until the day before we left. The 2nd day I reported a leak that was found on the sink in the downstairs ensuite, we were advised someone would be out to fix it and just use towels to mop up the leak, nobody ever turned up. Day 3 and the high winds had blown the side gate and removed the bottom hinge almost but we didn't report this as I didn't want to be on the phone reporting issues every day, especially as nobody turned up to fix the leak. The shower/bath situation was appalling for a property this size. You could get 1.5 showers before the water was freezing cold, for a property of this size with 8 people it was a nightmare to get showers as you had to wait at least 15mins after each shower to ensure the water didn't run cold!! The sink in the kitchen needs to be looked at as when running the hot water, the faucet became loose and squirted hit water at one of the guests(again luckily not one of the children). The general cleanliness of the property was good apart from when you were up on the balcony area, the top of the windows/frames were THICK with cobwebs as they clearly hadn't been touched in months! And the bathroom bin lids were also thick with dust, in a time were cleanliness is essential this wasn't overly reassuring. The only other slight issue was there was just the 1 tea towel, again for a property that sleeps so many people an extra couple would of been handy. We unfortunately ended up leaving the property 2 days early due to these little issue but little things mount up and become an annoyance, especially when you've paid good money and there's no basics. The property itself is lovely and in a great little location, can imagine in the summer the views would be even more fantastic. Nice little walks around and not too far from a few towns. We book a property like this every year for new year and have never encountered this before, there wasn't even any Christmas decorations at the property! We're extremely dissapointed that these are the standards from Sykes as this was the first time we've used you, but I think we'll just stick to private rentals going forward.

    Everything was clean and beautiful views. Took a while to find it as it’s tucked out the way but got there in the end. Beds a tad too hard for me but everyone else ok.

  • "The house itself is very nice, has most things you need for a family week away and comfy beds, but would benefit from larger towels."

    It has an amazing view, lovely to sit in the living area or hot tub and look out. We went in October and Dinas Dinlle was very quiet, though the property is very close to the beach the hotel / pub had no one in and the chip shop only opened at weekends and shut at 7pm. So if you’re looking for a quiet break away from it all this is a great location. Apparently it’s a lot busier in the summer. Lots of places to visit locally if you’re willing to drive a little - we went to Tremadog for a lovely meal out and went to a local beach you could drive on which was a huge sandy beach and good fun.
