Purchased this holiday through Sykes cottages. Payed £930 for a week. It was for a disabled lady who has one holiday a year. Firstly if you want internet it does not work at ALL (all you get from the owner is well there is local Internet cafes near by) it’s advertised with internet it isn’t advertised as has internet but because of location may not work, therefore there should be working internet. Secondly the place was absolutely filthy, we got up on our first morning to have to clean the grill from the previous people. There was dead flies over every single window and the dust was awful. (See Pictures) cobwebs everywhere. (Response from owner was they can’t be held responsible for flies that would be true if the flies came towards the end of the holiday but they was there when we arrived) the dust was so thick under the beds you could see it as you walked in the room. The downstairs shower was broke therefore needing to use it for a disabled person was not good, (owner was aware said it was be too big of a job to repair) so there solution while we was there was to attach a bungee rope to keep the shower head up so the disabled person can use it, there attitude was the property never stated it was for disabled people (I’m sorry but anybody that wants a shower needs to be able to have one comfortable regardless of weather there disabled or not. You couldn’t see the views when you sat in the lounge through the dirty windows. The toilet downstairs didn’t flush. The intire properly needs a complete look at, the attitude from the owner after we made a complaint has been appalling they don’t answer there phone. They have not apologised and feel they are offering a fantastic property they need a reality check and need to have some respect for the people that are paying money to go to there property. Which they are happy to take. Would not recommend going to this property, unless u like dirty dusty places. The hot tub was absolutely lush so 10/10 for the hot tub.
Our holiday was completly runied the place was filthy the furniture was old broken and uncomfortable the bed linen stained as were the matresses the kitchen was dirty as was the cooker there was a fly trap on the window sill that hadnt been emptied for weeks
The hot tub the very reason for booking was filthy not maintained the water was coveted in a scum and was not checked the whole time we were there it was unuseable the outside area was unkept with beer cans and cigarette ends everywhere.
We were heartbroken having spent over £800 for a holiday to spend precious time with my Mom receiving palliative care for cancer it was completly ruined and we actually left and returned home 2 days early.
Avoid this place it needs a complete deep clean and refurb.
Despite complaining on our return they didnt even have the courtesy to respond.........shame on you
The cottage is dirty and unsafe. There were cobwebs everywhere, mattresses stained, dirty floors, filthy cooker, hot tub had no chlorine and pH off the scale. Outdoor furniture dilapidated and broken chairs discarded in long grass. Electric wiring cover outdoors broken and on the floor. No fire guard... holiday ruined.
