  • "It is a will kept apartment with ever thing you need"

    We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay, Helen and Peter Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely weeks stay at Portside."

    The location is great, an ideal base to explore the Northumberland coast. We had fish and chips from one of the many fish and chip shops within 5 minute walking distance and a great meal at The Bamburgh Castle Inn again 5 minutes walk away. The property was cosy once we turned the heaters on and had a great view of the sea. The beds were comfortable and the property was clean and beautifully decorated. We didn't do much cooking but had we wanted to the kitchen was very well equipped with all you would need. We will definitely return if we are visiting this area again.

    We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Helen and Peter Property Owner

  • "We didn’t think the welcome pack was what we expected."

    We have had cottages like this for the last 12 years and have always been welcomed with bread and milk at least and often a bottle of wine. There was none of this. Many of the usual things were not there - washing liquid, washing tabs, tea bags, coffee - we could go on! The apartment itself was excellently located with wonderful views and close to all that we wanted to see and do

  • "Pros - Views from the living room, distance from town, Kitchen facilities are of high quality and generally a very nice apartment when all the windows are closed it is very very quiet."

    Cons - NOT A SMART TV, not even a working BBC i-player it is an old TV so pretty useless and should not be listed as a smart tv. We expected to use our Netflix, Disney Plus and Prime on the "Smart TV" on an evening as our entertainment on return to the apartment but could not even get BBC iplayer because the app is so old the BBC I-player crashes before it opens so had to rely on terrestrial TV which was not what was advertised on the booking and where it is positioned on the wall is ridiculous Sykes answer to this was we should of spoken to the owners (as if they would buy a new TV and fit it to the wall for us to put this right). Really uncomfortable beds, springs sticking out and we DID NOT request the beds to be separated before our holiday because we wanted two King-size beds but they were made into two singles in the second room meaning our Son had to sleep on a single bed, we could not change this because we were provided with single bedding. I got a line of itchy bites on the first day either fleas from a previous dog staying on the sofa or bed bugs I informed Sykes but they didn't care and I bet they have not even advised the owners. The Bathroom in the main bedroom is pretty manky and needs refurb. The tiles and grout were filthy the edge of the shower guard disgusting, the toilet doesn't flush properly (something the owners know about as there is a sticker on the wall) even after three flushes it still leaked. When the doors/windows are open (when it is Summer you need this) the traffic from the main road outside makes it intolerable because it is so loud and no one seems to drive at the speed limit so if you have small children please note this road is dangerous as you get very fast cars passing not the owners issue but worth noting. These issues were brought to Sykes attention but they didn't even bother to respond they could not care less. I don't think I would ever use Sykes again but would definitely go to Seahouses again!

  • "A perfectly located (short walk from all shops, pubs and restaurants) handsome sea view apartment, furnished, decorated and equipped to a high standard."

    It has an excellent parking area with generous bays. Weaknesses: the “smart” TV is out-dated, not very smart and positioned too high; the shower in the en suite of the main bedroom doesn’t have a top head (only the small hand-held secondary head). Thankfully, the shower in the en suite of the second bedroom is complete and works, though I’m not a fan of rain forest showers.

  • "Lovely position, very comfortable and a choice of 2 balconies was a good idea, a bigger table on the front/side balcony would make it almost perfect."

    I have already recommended this area to a near neighbour, and they are planning to visit seahouses in 6 weeks time. (they'll Love it) and I think they are due to rent one of the apartments when they visit soon.

    We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay , we’d love to see you again ! Helen and Peter Property Owner

  • "The property was in an excellent location."

    Ideally situated between the town centre and the beach. The views were fantastic overlooking the sea and the Farne Islands with balconies at either end of the property to enjoy the views and weather. The property was decorated to a very high standard. The beds were a great size which suited as as we were co-sleeping with our toddler. Both bedrooms having an en-suits was also a great feature which drew us in. We would definitely stay here again.
