    Highly recommended.

  • "Spatious house in excellent location in Southwold with very nice garden."

    Comfortable, modern bath rooms. Kitchen equipment not sufficient for 8 people e.g. not a single bigger pot suitable to cook spaghetti for 8 people. Basement toilet not properly working (we phoned up the Sykes team on the second day but no one showed up). Some bedroom- and bathroom doors not properly closing, one bedroom window not properly working.
