  • "The accommodation was tired and tatty."

    The bathroom was so small you could barely move around in it. The sealant on the shower was cracked and dirty. The sink was sitting on a raw wood cupboard and it was beginning to show signs of rot. We were unable to use the sink for a couple of days as the plug had jammed and we had to wait for a plumber to come out to fix it. The hot water pressure was joke as all there was a trickle. Although wifi was not advertised it was supplied but the data allowance had run out and the owner would not renew although we tried. The accommodation is part of a block if three and when the flat above the accommodation is occupied it is very noisy and off putting, you can here every move made upstairs and I mean every move. This accommodation needs upgrading urgently and is only suitable for two people and not four as advertised. This is the second sub-standard accommodation we have booked through Sykes, this one and one in the lake district some years ago. We would question the method of your inspections.

  • "I have had many Skye's cottages in the past, sadly this did not meet the usual high standards."

    The cottage was advertised for 4 but was so small, two was comfortable. The WiFi didn't work all holiday , after contacting owner and Skye's the issue wasn't resolved. Seems owner didn't pay the bill. The bathroom was poky, mouldy and an awful saniflo system that blocked constantly. The sofabed was half broken and very uncomfortable. The cooker was so old you couldn't see any settings and was impossible to cook on without burning food. On the plus side views spectacular and great location. But all in all I was disappointed with the stay. I am disabled and I need comfortable surroundings. I was full of aches and pains here.

  • "The milk and biscuits awaiting our arrival were very welcome."

    As we were staying for 2 weeks I had thought clean bed linen and towels would be provided at the end of the first week. The 2 minor problems we had were dealt with very promptly and in a very friendly way.

  • "We stopped over the Christmas period."

    The property was lovely and warm when we arrived. The owner had laid the table for Christmas. There was a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates. The road down to the property is quite a rough track with some potholes and two cattle grids. As a previewer had stated the cooker had no markings on the controls, however we were able to use and guess temperatures from the instruction manual. After the second day we were met with dozens of houseflies (awoken by the heat?) fly spray sorted this out. The shower is not easily used for someone over 1.8m tall as the ceiling is low (people were shorter when the property was built).

  • "It is second times we go to Damavand , Nice place to stay , very quite , plenty of walks in The National Park , we had many visitors like blackbirds , Robin's and sheep which seemed Liked the food we left out for them ."

    Especially the sheep enjoyed the birds food, funny animals . Snowdonia is always a nice place to visit . I recommend to every one to go and visit there .

  • "Damavand had good locations and actually not suitable for family."

    It says on the catalogue suitable for 4 persons but I think it can only accommodate 2 persons.

  • "The holiday cottage was everything we expected in a lovely remote location."

    The only issue was the road accessing the property, a single lane farm track. It was a bit of a bumpy ride but this is really nit picking. We'd happily book this cottage again.

  • "Stunning little cottage, pictures don't do it justice."

    Very nicely set out. Table set out for us also. Bit more spacious then it seems on pictures. Nice little bench to the side, and lovely little BBQ area. Couldn't fault it from looks and cleanliness. Bar of dairy milk left for us, which was a nice treat when arrived! We got a lot of visits from the sheep outside the big window and around the cottage, which was funny and made the cottage experience more enjoyable. The only issues where:- the road down to the cottage isn't the best (stoney and uneven)- but it is drivable! The bed springs seem to have gone, sticking in your sides etc, which made it uncomfortable. The numbering behind the oven dials are worn so you cant see what your putting it on. The noise from the cottage above can get quite intense. We seemed to be unlucky to have "night owls" that stayed up till quite late moving furniture by the sounds of it. Though these few minor issues, we would definitely stay here again. It was a fantastic location to do all the things we did, such as beaches, snowdon, Anglesey etc. It was also great to get back to the cottage later on and relax outside in the little garden. I would definitely recommend booking this cottage!

Caernarfon (county town of Gwynedd) has much historic and cultural importance in North Wales. It is a popular tourist spot with its impressive 13th Century castle, well preserved town walls and delightful water front. During the season there are guided tours of the castle and special events including historic pageants. There is also a station for the Welsh Highland Railway, which passes through dramatic scenery, the village of Beddgelert and onto Porthmadog. Fishing trips are available from the harbour and another attraction within walking distance of the town centre is Segontium, a Roman fort and museum, housing many important finds. Caernarfon offers a wide selection of shops and places to eat and is close to the lovely beaches of the Isle of Anglesey and the Lleyn Peninsula as well as the mountains and rivers of Snowdonia, including the renowned mountaineering town of Llanberis at the foot of Mount Snowdon.
