    “This is my first time booking with Sykes and likely the last.”

    We were led to believe the cottage had been 'deep-cleaned' due to extra requirements however it had clearly not been cleaned in weeks. There were visible cobwebs everywhere, dirt on the floor and overall lacked any attention to detail. The plates and cutlery etc were all dirty and had to be washed before use.

    We were led to believe the cottage had been 'deep-cleaned' due to extra requirements however it had clearly not been cleaned in weeks. There were visible cobwebs everywhere, dirt on the floor and overall lacked any attention to detail. The plates and cutlery etc were all dirty and had to be washed before use. We had booked for 4 people but were only supplied with two towels. There was no shower gel or soap for when you did want to shower (please be aware you have to lie down in the bath to shower as not even a borrower could stand). We were not supplied with milk, tea, coffee or any of the usual homely bits we expect when going to cottages. As soon as we arrived and parked in front of the house as the ad states the neighbour came out and starting shouting at us as we were near her drive, not even covering it. We went to the local pub as suggested and there was a sign saying all non-welsh go home as we were not welcome, saying we were causing the locals distress. From minute one we were felt to be intruders and that is the last thing we expected when going on holidays for the weekend. It says two small dogs can stay, however there is no yard or garden and the front door opens on to a road, so it is definitely not safe for dogs to come unless you want to have them on leads at all times. It also states there is a games room, unless that means the stairs which are like a challenge on takeshi's castle that is an outright lie. I feel we were mis-sold a peaceful cottage trip away for the weekend and have come back more angry than pleased. We were unable to put the heating on, the boiler said 'water-only', so we had to be cold which is just horrific customer service - to not allow customers to put the heating on is quite frankly unacceptable. There is no phone service and no internet, so when you feel you're not accepted in the pub you're restricted to channels 1-5 in a cold room. As per previous reviews, I can confirm there is no thermostat in the cottage. DO NOT STAY HERE.

About the location

PENMACHNO

Betws-y-Coed 4 miles.

The small, peaceful village of Penmachno is situated in the beautiful Machno Valley, just 4 miles from the popular town of Betws-y-Coed. Surrounded by woodland, magnificent mountains and flowing rivers, the whole area is a haven for walkers, birdwatchers, mountain bikers and climbers, whilst Betws-y-Coed itself offers a good range of shops, pubs and cafes. Here the River Conwy meets its three tributaries, creating a host of cascading waterfalls, river pools and ancient bridges throughout the surrounding countryside, the most famous of which is the magnificent waterfall at Swallow Falls, situated where the River Llugwy meets with a spectacular chasm, creating a sight not to be missed! The beautiful Conwy Falls are also well worth a visit and are situated in the Machno Valley. With all of Snowdonia to explore and North Wales' Heritage Coastlines also within easy reach, this beautiful location has plenty to offer at any time of year.
