  • "On arrival the oven did not work and a lot of time could have been saved if detailed instructions were left."

    under the beds were very dirty and there were lots of dogs hairs on the carpet and furniture which we had to thoroughly clean as we have allergies. The lights above the dining table were faulty and could not be used during Christmas dinner which was rather irritating. Also there are insufficient bin storage outside.

    Thank you for your feedback its very much appreciated, we're sorry to hear you had issues with your stay. We understand that you had an issue with the oven and managed to get it working , the full instruction booklet on how to work the oven is in the welcome manual and further to our text message conversation that you just need to set the timer. In regards to the lights being a problem, if you would of let me know we could of got them fixed during your stay. I thought it may of been just needing the dimmers turning up as i advised you but with not hearing from you further we believed that to be rectified. If you would of let us know regarding the bins we could of got them emptied as another guest called me and we got two bins emptied straight away. We are at hand to assist all of our guests and provide contact details should they wish to get in touch. Once again thank you for staying with us. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was really cosy and a great place to come back to after a walk in Snowdonia."

    The upstairs was a bit limiting with the sloping ceilings but we were warned about that anyway. Great location for walking in Snowdonia and the beach is just down the road.

    There was everything one would expect for an enjoyable holiday. My only complaint was the toilet in the bathroom was not as clean as one would expect. Apart from that everything was comfortable fir an enjoyable holiday.

    The houses are surrounded by wildlife, wounderful trees and associated bord life. We really appreciated the owners work and effort to ensure nature has a home at Garth Morthin. Would highly recommend a stay at any of the cottages and look forward to returing one day.

    The stables is a lovely cosy cottage in the most perfect location, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, so much so we have booked again for next year (well we have booked the barn for next year but would happily stay in the stables again) Only comment would be there was nothing to light the log burner with so make sure you take a lighter/matches with you

    Cottage it's self has good modern facilities and was clean and comfortable. Patio area was fab especially given the great weather we got . Only niggle would be the mattress on the double bed could do with upgrading for a firmer one , but that's nit picking.

  • "Our holiday was brilliant from start to finish."

    Sykes were so easy to deal with and the emails, messages regarding countdown to our stay were enjoyed and appreciated by our 2 very excited children. The property was exactly as described. It was beautiful inside and out. The owner was so helpful. The Sykes app was so useful when I downloaded with information about the area, tours, amenities and even the weather forecast. We had never done a holiday like this before, we either went to apart hotels in Europe or stayed in hotels in Ireland, but without doubt, we would rent a house/cottage again and would use Sykes again. I have already recommended this agency and this property to 2 other families. Thank you for all your help. Couldn't br happier!!
