    “Numerous incidents occurred throughout this holiday.”

    We arrived at the property and it had not been cleaned. This was evident as soon as pulling up outside as all the bins were overflowing. We entered the property via a key in the keysafe that was not even closed! The smell was awful as soon as the door was opened. This was found to be rotting food in the bins inside. The bed was unmade, had human hair in and the general overall cleanliness was very poor. ...

    We arrived at the property and it had not been cleaned. This was evident as soon as pulling up outside as all the bins were overflowing. We entered the property via a key in the keysafe that was not even closed! The smell was awful as soon as the door was opened. This was found to be rotting food in the bins inside. The bed was unmade, had human hair in and the general overall cleanliness was very poor. We contacted Sykes immediately after finding no contact numbers inside the property. Sykes were immediately concerned and empathetic advising us they would contact the management company of the property. They called us back and advised to leave, get something to eat and return in around an hour or so. They advised they would cover the costs of the meal as i explained we always book self catering as we cook our own food and this was my intention this evening. As Sykes were happy to pay for a meal we decided tis was satisfactory and very grateful for the gesture. This did not eliminate the issue of having to leave our dog in the car whilst we had food but it was the only option at the time as we were tired and hungry after travelling over 4 hours to get to the cottage. When we returned the bed had been changed and the bins (inside) emptied and loo rolls replenished. Unfortunately the overall cleanliness was still very poor. Dust EVERYWHERE and not just little bits of dust, dust that must have been there years. The wardrobe was unusable due to a fusty duvet inside and numeorus cobwebs and spiders. The cobwebs all over the walls were also very evident and bad. The most disturbing was inside the cutlery draw. We were left some packets of mile by the management company for tea i guess but these were unusable as they were 8 YEARS OUT OF DATE. There was numerous bin bags of rubbish outside the property that we discovered after trying to find some logs for the log burner as we were left with none (still never found any) and again we called Sykes to keep them informed. We agreed to stay that night as we had travelled a long way and really felt as though we had no choice. The bed was clean so that was acceptable. The following day we got up, early and headed to Mount Snowdon as this is what the trip was intended for! We decided that we would not go all that way and not do what we came to do. That was unfair to us after such a busy and stressful Christmas, hence the booking of the holiday in the first instance! We climbed Snowdon and Sykes called us whilst we were climbing advising that they could look for local properties for us to relocate too. I advised them to do this, send them over on email and once we had completed the climb we would take a look and decide. Numerous hours later, after we had completed the climb in tretourous weather conditions we looked at the properties. Although we were very grateful that Sykes had taken the time to look at alternatives for us, they weren't what we were hoping for so we politely declined. We the called Sykes to advise we would stay at the property for another night as we were simply exhausted from the climb and head home the next day. Which we did. We advised we had to get logs and sticks for the fire on the way back as we didn't have any. Again, Sykes advised us to keep the receipts and they would refund us. Again we were happy with this. We left the following day, a day early and we informed Sykes once again that is what we did as they asked us to keep them informed. All pictures and receipts will be sent through via email. Very disappointing holiday from start to finish but not at all Sykes fault. They were the only reason we stayed and made it manageable throughout. For the sake of your reputation, remove this cottage from your website until it has been cleaned THOROUGHLY and they have a management company in place that actually CARE. Best regards, Jade and Matt Bullock.

    Thank you for your honest feedback, this has been thoroughly investigated with the owner of the property and the management company. The owner of the property has now changed their managed service provider and the property has been thoroughly cleaned and is ready for future stays. Mrs Bullock has been contacted and a amicable and satisfactory outcome has been provided. - Sykes owner relations
