  • "I meant to say the problem with the fridge wasn’t resolved - it still made a lot of noise and no ice."

    Not a problem for us but you may want to get it looked at. Thankyou - the pictures don’t do the house justice

  • "We were sorry it was so short we had such a lovely time."

    Family meet up of 3 generations all enjoyed this lovely home. The Welcome pack was unexpected & was a lovely gesture. We were worried about the parking as we had brought 2 cars, but had no difficulty finding spaces. Thank you for sharing your lovely home. Linda Neill

  • "We had a lovely stay and the house fulfilled our needs perfectly from the very well equipped kitchen to all of the other facilities."

    However, I had cause to contact the landline number on the Wednesday, and I also used the mobile used by Natalie(?) to ring me on the 11th August when we were on our way. I left a message on both numbers, and never received a reply. Luckily, it wasn't urgent and we figured the problem out. If it had have been urgent, we would have felt a bit stuck, to be honest. Can I suggest that you check your answer phone messages, or at least make sure that the numbers are correct? Other than that, we had a lovely stay. The welcome pack was a lovely touch :-)

    Centrally located . The property itself has everything we needed and more . Not recommended for disabled or infirm as lots of stairs . We obviously love the place as 3 stays says it all

  • "We have recently returned from a 3 night stay at castle view as a group of 12."

    The house is very clean, comfortable, spacious and very well equipped! The location is spot on and everything can be accessed on foot which is great. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch and we will definitely be booking again!

  • "The house was fantastic for a large group, access to town was great."

    Previous reviews regarding neighbours were a little daunting at first but we found these reviews to be inaccurate during our stay. The welcome pack was gratefully received and the children loved the icecube machine! Parking was easy.

  • "Although the listing was accurate, with hindsight there is a glaring lack of information about the location of the property, It is in an area of multiple HMO's, most other properties appear to be converted to flats."

    The house next door had 6 broken/boarded up windows and was occupied by the local drunks. As a result there was fighting,shouting,banging and loud music. The house directly opposite was not much better. The pavement outside was littered with broken glass empty beer cans and condoms. Whilst the property was excellent the area is certainly not conducive for a family holiday which involves children. I would certainly not recommend this property nor Sykes assuming they are aware of the shortcomings of the area.

  • "The property was absolutely fantastic and house a large family of 14 very comfortably."

    We had an amazing time in the property and feel the facilities were brilliant. The host was fantastic resolved any queries very quickly. The house is unfortunately in a quite run down area which is slightly off putting but the property itself is great.
