  • "More parking space has we had two cars and there was only room for one car"

    Hi there is extra parking opposite the allocated car park space that anyone can use. Also there is a locked car park just behind the flat that can be used. The key can be loaned for a £5 deposit by contacting myself. Property Owner

  • "The position was of the flat was great with parking right outside but getting in and out of the flat was a real nightmare."

    The key to the main door was very difficult to unlock. Sometimes it would take over 10 minutes to get in. Then the security keypad on the flat door had to be tackled. It was almost impossible to see the keypad due to it being so dark on the landing, even wearing my reading glasses and even on the rare occasions the light was on. If I hadn't had my son with me I wouldn't have been able to get in at all. There is also a key to open a security gate to get to the beach and that was equally difficult to operate. It meant we were locked on the beach side one evening until someone passing was able to open it from the other side. There were plenty of towels and the flat was warm but could have been cleaner. In particular the utensils, plates, cutlery and cooker were in a disgusting state. We had to wash everything before using anything. The oven was so greasy that I didn't even bother with that. The DVD player was also on the blink and made a horrendous noise, too noisy to play and the sound bar wasn't even connected so we couldn't even increase the volume to compensate. The bathroom door squeaked loudly disturbing anyone trying to sleep. The chairs in the dining room also make a deafening noise on flooring. They could do with some rubber feet on bottom. I felt sorry for the people in the flat beneath us. Despite all this we had a good time but I wouldn't book this property again.

  • "The location of this property is fantastic, there is a 'private' route to the beach but this wasn't the easiest of routes so we just walk a couple of minutes down the road and used the access from The Seagull car park."

    Brean Leisure Park and Splash Park are an easy walk in the other direction and there are a number of places to eat, we only used the car to go shopping and for a few longer visits. Everything inside the property was not great, which was a real shame. It was dirty, covered in dust and other 'things'. The list below has been provided to Sykes with photographs but looking at other reviews on here and other Trip based Advisor websites we are not the first to raise them. No blind in the bathroom - the fixings are rusting away on the wall, but no blind (not great when a painters head appears a foot away from the window!) Black mold on the shower curtain (still) A shower pole that falls on you if you pull the shower curtain to hard A large gap between the end of the bath and the wall - be careful with what you place on the end of the bath A very 'sticky' kitchen - we made a clean bit on the top of the fire blanket holder, Rusty kitchen equipment - cheese grater, toaster, microwave Very, very, very hot water - please BE CAREFUL The top of both wardrobes thick with dust - you don't want to store anything up there Dental floss stick, finger nail and used tissue found in the additional bedding under the bed settee (nice!) The lounge fan blades thick with black dust - we didn't dare turn it on Not the most secure of front doors Considering you are currently being asked to check in later at the moment, so additional cleaning can be completed I imagine, I have no idea what this additional time is being used for. Oh and one last thing - don't look at the double mattress until you are leaving......its probably for the best. The only thing that was sorted was when the blocked drainage caused the sink to overflow with water from the washing machine that then leaked into the apartment downstairs. Yes, we did raise all of these issues with Sykes but for the second week of our fortnight break nothing was sorted. What really made it was when people attended to fix the plumbing issue (including the owner) but that was all that was done. The floss, finger nail and tissue remained in situ! I really, really hope that these things are addressed as it could be a great holiday let.

  • "We had a nice break here and it was nice to have the beach so close by and private to residents although it was a shame we didn’t have the weather."

    Location is near to pubs although all were very busy and not many options of nice restaurants nearby. The apartment was clean and basic, however the bathroom could do with a new shower curtain & the DVD player maybe needs replacing as it makes a funny noise & freezes the screen from time to time. Other than those minor things it had everything needed.

  • "The apartment was filthy."

    My wife just wanted to go home as soon as we arrived but instead we found a supermarket and bought cleaning materials. The worst was the bathroom. There was black mildew all over the walls and the shower curtain just needed throwing away. How expensive is a new shower curtain! I spent the first two night cleaning it to persuade her to stay. The kitchen was in a similar state so we just didn’t use it and ate out instead. It’s a shame though, it has great potential but just needs decorating top to bottom. My main frustration is that During a pandemic i at least expected it to be clean, in fact that’s what Sykes is pushing on the website! Just words, nobody can be doing any checks. That bathroom has spent a long time getting that black. I hope anyone using the place after us appreciates the work we put in to that bathroom. Luckily we took a couple of throws with us so we put these on the sofa so we had something to sit on. I have been staying in cottages for many years and this was definitely the worst ever. We left early…. Just in case anyone thinks I’m one of those internet moaners, this is the first review I have Ever given.

  • "The apartment is in a prime location in Brean with all amenities within waking distance car parking is directly in front of the apartment and bays are large."

    The neighbor below is friendly and helpful. The apartment still needs basic improvements carried out but these are all cosmetic and didn't detract from a very enjoyable holiday in some very hot temperatures . The entrance to the beech is close and in easy walking distance . The only negatives would be the bath as there is not enough hot water in the system to have a bath but can be overcome by filling the bath via the large shower head and as a suggestion it would be good to notify the occupants about the dates the window cleaner is due as both my grand daughter and daughter were woken up and frightened by the window being hit with the brush being used to close the window. This was our second successive year we have stayed here and would recommend it.

  • "There were a few issues that we had with the property."

    We found that we had to do a bit of cleaning, there was no blind in the kitchen, and the walls/floors are very thin. I could hear the gentleman in the apartment downstairs snoring all night! The property is also non-smoking but is directly opposite an apartment that is, so there is a strong smell when entering the building. There was limited hot water, so didn't last two showers or one bath. However, the heating was brilliant; the beach was very close by and easily accessible; and it was in a good location.

    Thank you for your feedback, We do take all feedback seriously. We have addressed the cleanliness issue withe the cleaner to prevent issues such as this happening in future. With relation to the apartment opposite, we have no control who occupies this so apologise if he was smoking. The property does have an electric shower so should be no reason why the hot water would run out on this. Thank you for your feedback, this is very important to us. Property Owner

  • "We were disappointed in the area we were staying in."

    We didn't expect bars instead of pubs which were noisy and off putting. The beach was near like described but there were notices along the beach warning of sinking sand!. The main road was dirty and full of rubbish. The flat was warm and cosy and had everything we needed but it was noisy in the evenings with residents and visitors banging doors. Additionally, the first twoman mornings of our stay we were awoken by workmen fitting new windows in the flat below us.
