  • “We stayed in the Blue Peter apartment in Whitby which was all that we could have wished for and really enjoyed our stay, that was the good part, getting access to the property was a joke.”

    When we arrived we followed th instructions give on our documentation entering the code 1920 several times with no joy I telephoned the help number and waited approx 15 mins with no response, by this time a guest who was staying in the same building let us in using a different code to one we were given. We then again followed the instructions as per documentation and tried to access the key safe for the room key using the code 1920, as per the instructions and once again after trying to contact Sykes office was left waiting for a responce, fortunately a lady called Helen who appeared to been the caretaker was in the building and got us access the room by giving us the correct code. All I can say is that the administration at the Syes office is a joke bordering on incompetence, so if you book one of these properties and receive documentation with codes 1920 for both access and key safe I suggest you contact Sykes and ask for clarification
