    “This is the third time my family have booked this property.”

    We knew from the first two stays that it needed a great deal of TLC in terms of painting and decorating and that it was extremely basic but the layout of the property and the location outweighed the negatives.-just. We will not be booking this property again and are disappointed that Sykes do not carry out any form of QA in order to provide accurate descriptions of properties. There is paint flaking off walls in every room-severely so. The door of the main living area had a hole punched through ...

    We knew from the first two stays that it needed a great deal of TLC in terms of painting and decorating and that it was extremely basic but the layout of the property and the location outweighed the negatives.-just. We will not be booking this property again and are disappointed that Sykes do not carry out any form of QA in order to provide accurate descriptions of properties. There is paint flaking off walls in every room-severely so. The door of the main living area had a hole punched through it. The kitchen sink was damaged. The property is dirty. The outside area is not fit for anyone to be-walls, floor and garden furniture were green with moss. It is such a shame that this listed building would be so neglected-so much potential as a holiday property.
