  • "The house was really dirty."

    Mould in the bathrooms. Stained bed linen. Piles of dead insects along skirting boards. Mould in bedrooms on ceilings and walls. Very strong musty smell to whole of house. 1 sofa was very uncomfortable. Outside light didn’t work at back door. No recycle bins - therefore instructions provided to put bins out could not be actioned. Had to take recyclables home with us.

    The owners can confirm that there are recycling bins on site (in fact 2 sets of bins), and that the outside light does work - but the owners will get this checked as it's a case of switching it on at the wall which is sometimes missed. In terms of cleaning - the owners have let the housekeeper know about the insects which they apologise for and it is a very unusual occurrence which might be to do with localised weather conditions. The mould patches described are being investigated and the linen comes clean each week from a commercial laundrette so the owners can't understand how it can be 'stained' as it is washed at a commercial high heat, but the owners have also fed this back. This has never been experienced before. Property Owner

  • "Met immediately with an ancient rusty fridge."

    Musty kitchen and dining room crockery cupboards. Strange mix of kitchen utensils, no sharp knife for food prep - cramped food preparation area. Both bathrooms had mould evident and end bathroom had no hot water in basin, shaving uncomfortable due to unsuitable mirror. Recycling - there was no outside food bin and no trolley/boxes? Generally tired appearance needs some TLC. On a positive note the location is superb and the gardens are wonderful. This is the first time we have been disappointed with a Sykes property and feel it doesn’t live up to 4 ticks.

    Thank you for your comments which are important to us. We are sorry you felt disappointed with the kitchen – sharp knives were recently purchased in August this year, so we are looking in to why they weren’t still there we have replaced the fridge with a brand new one. We will feedback to the housekeeper that you found this area musty. As to it being a ‘cramped’ area – it is the original 1900s cottage kitchen with two work surfaces available which usually offer ample preparation space for a party of six. In the house folder it mentions how to boost the hot water for the end bathroom – this is not normally an issue for guests. We have spoken to the housekeeper about the bin situation and We can confirm that the recycling bins were on site during the stay, as we have two sets which are rotated weekly, so we can't understand why there were none found. We are pleased that you enjoyed the gardens and the location. Thank you, the Ty Bryn owners. Property Owner

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ty Bryn."

    The cottage was clean and comfortable with plenty of room for us. Nice to have a welcome pack of Welshcakes too. The kitchen was well equipped and , having a baby in the party, the washing machine came in very handy too. A lovely big dining table and huge separate toom upstairs was fab. Beds were very comfortable. Location was excellent. A lovely walk along the lane and on the coast path to morfa Nefyn beach and lots of lovely other beaches and things to do within a short drive

  • "Ty Bryn is a lovely house and in a great setting, with green space & gardens around it."

    We much enjoyed our stay and the location, near to the coastal path and to The Cliffs.. and nearby Nefyn. Some details of the accomodation slightly let it down, being truthfully honest. When you're going on holiday you want things to be pleasant. Various small details.. mugs all bit random, either chunky large, or small / mismatched. same with the cutlery. Upgrading details like this would not be difficult! Similarly, the fridge seems a tad elderly (afew rust spots etc.) however this didn't spoil our overall enjoyment. The heating tablet/app unfortunately seemed to have a mind of it's own. We easily mastered the basic controls - for either individual rooms, or multiple room controls. We also did not attempt to alter any other settings. But one or 2 rads would come on of their own volition, particularly in the yellow bedroom. It was the only one on when we arrived at the cottage and seemed to turn itself on at night, making the room v stuffy. (Our thanks to the original family that own the house by the way, lovely stylings and great upstairs room)

    Thank you so much for your feedback which is important to us, and we’re so pleased you enjoyed the house and location. I understand you had issues with the heating app and this has been fed back to the manufacturers - as it’s usually a very simple system to work. We’ve also taken on board your comments about the mugs and refrigerator etc. We hope you will return to the house again and enjoy another break at Ty Bryn soon. Very best wishes. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is comfortable, spacious and in a good position close to the beach and coastal walks."

    However, there were a number of weaknesses: (1) Cleanliness. Your documentation stated that the time between 10 and 5 on changeover day is needed for "deep cleaning" in present circumstances. However, previous tenants had evidently brought a dog and not cleaned up after it. We needed to give the utility room floor a thorough wash with a mop bucket and this demonstrated how dirty it was. (2) The information folder states that TV reception is poor and can only be accessed (with difficulty) through I-Player. Many people would not be familiar with this and it restricts the number of channels available. In the circumstances it would be good practice to provide a DVD player and a selection of DVDs for clients to watch. (3) Similarly the heating system, operated through an App and device, is not straightforward. All rooms have to set individually and we found that, once turned on, the heating turns itself off after about 2 hours. Setting the timer was beyond the technical capability of 2 of us. (4) There is a serious shortage of storage space for food - ie no pantry. Clients booking self-catering in a remote location will expect to bring most of the food required with them. It was fortunate that there is a spare room where we stored food in boxes, and we also used the shelves on dressers among the crockery.

    Thank you for your recent feedback. I have passed on to our cleaning team the comments regarding the utility floor. Top housekeeping is a priority for us and I am sorry you found the utility floor in a less than acceptable condition. In terms of your other points – the TV reception is poor only in the play / children’s room where we suggest people to use i player instead; the TV in the lounge has a full range of channels and internet TV for people who want to use their own subscriptions. The heating app is a user- friendly system designed specifically for holiday cottage use, which most guests have found very effective - so I am sorry you found it tricky to use. We do leave a full set of instructions out for guests’ use. Finally, there is a deep corner cupboard in the kitchen for use for food storage in addition to the fridge and freezer and bread bin etc and then the dresser in the kitchen can be used to store items, as well as several surfaces in the kitchen. Due to the kitchen being a country style, there won’t be the spaces you might find in a more modern ‘fitted’ kitchen, but we do feel there is ample room for guests’ use. Thank you once again for a detailed feedback. Property Owner

  • "We’ve stayed here now for the third year in a row and it’s rural location is perfect."

    The house is very spacious and has enough equipment. A nice garden and outlook over to the sea. The heating is replaced and works very fine (remote through an app). WIFI works perfect. The inventory could do with some upgrading (sofa, carpet and curtains). The cleaning could be better: the curtain in the shower was dirty and we did wash it ourselves. Nevertheless it’s a fine house to come to an enjoy a holiday, despite the comments...

    Thank you for your feedback which is so important to us. We have made several updates over the past few months including improvements to the second bathroom, painting inside and out, remedial building work and new garden furniture. We have also employed a new housekeeper and we are confident you would enjoy another stay with us and if you are looking for a location again this summer, we’d love to welcome you back to Ty Bryn. In the meantime, thank you for choosing Ty Bryn these past few years and we are delighted you recognise it’s a ‘fine house’ as you kindly called it. Property Owner

  • "Not enough outdoor furniture for the size of the property."

    Some aspects of the cottage not cleaned well. No facility for food recycling- this is definitely available in the village. It made us feel uncomfortable knowing our food waste would be in the bin for 3 weeks!! But the cottage itself was very comfortable and beautifully located.

    Thank you for choosing Ty Bryn for your recent stay. Feedback is really important to us and from recent comments, we are arranging for additional outdoor furniture to be provided for the garden. We have inspected the cleanliness of the house, which has always been of upmost importance to us for our guests enjoyment, and feel assured it is still done to a high standard. We have arranged for food recycling facilities to return to the house for guests’ use. Property Owner

  • "Comfortable and lovely position."

    Tv signal poor and had to take own dvd. Moved some old garden furniture and garden was secure. Lots of rules in book about dogs and what not to do, didn’t feel very welcoming. (Stayed in another cottage 2nd week and much more welcoming welcome pack).

  • "Ty Bryn is a spacious cottage, well equipped."

    Everything you need is available. The curtains could do some fixing and cleaning; even so one of the couches. The garden is well maintenanced, but the hedge could be trimmed slightly lower, so the view towards Morfa Nefyn en the coast is better. I hope that this comments contribute to an even better level of service.

  • "Great location but second bathroom could do with an upgrade, only 1 shower for a property that sleeps 6."

    Upstairs was a lovely room , hundreds of books but it would have been nice to have had more information re the area. We really enjoyed our stay but as we went with our dog, it would have been good to have had a secure garden. Sheep and lambs were in the adjacent field so we could not go outside without her being on a lead. Very close to costal footpath but again no reference to its location from the cottage.. Would consider booking again now we know what to expect!

  • "Location was brilliant for us with a dog, great morning walks to the coastal path, lovely garden for her to mooch about in."

    We enjoyed the wonderful views from both downstairs and the upstairs additional lounge area. The cottage was very well equipped and nicely decorated, we just found it a little awkward having the fridge and dishwasher in the utility room next to the kitchen, but it was only for a week so fine really. It would also be good to have a hand held shower attachment over the bath but the wet room and walk in shower in the other bathroom was brilliant and very well done. My Mum, especially, said she felt very safe on the non-slip floor despite her mobility and balance issues. Thanks very much for a lovely stay at your cottage.
