“Owners very friendly, nice cottage”
“It was necessary to contact the owner 4 times to put things right at the start of our holiday.”
We shouldn't have had to do this as a previous holidaymaker had highlighted these issues in March 2018. Obviously nothing had been done by the owner. The wet room was always wet as ventilation was not sufficient. There was no conservatory, only a glazed front porch. So not described correctly. The bed and sofa were not at all comfortable. Overall very disappointed with the property and with the response from Sykes Cottages, after having long conversations with them about this matter.
“Lower score due to, we reported lock sticking on arrival, when leaving the neighbour said at least 3 other lets had also reported this issue, did suggest,oil or replace on note in the let.”
Bungalow very warm on arrival and drive way clear of snow, we cleared the steps, rather steep without hand rail. Kitchen had welcome milk in fridge but would have preferred a cleaner oven and pans, we did not use these, window sill greasy, needed a though clean, review of cutlery would show rust deterioration. Bed very comfortable unlike the settee, lean back to see T V, and would not like to use as a bed. Wardrobe door in need of repair again avoided using, in general it lacked care, e.g. had leaflets 2016/ 2017 did not inform us of local activities dog friendly places to eat, only how to use kitchen equipment. We did leave info on the places we visited, moved bin day info from kitchen to folder, as found too late to put bin out [recycle bin was full] also added time of mobile fish chip van in the close. personally found local people friendly, getting advise on places to walk our dog BUT. streets in general covered in litter waste [ local man walks on road to avoid ] If the standard will improve by publishing yes.
