RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS
Drab, dirty, dated, disgusting and dissapointed
We booked the apartment from the 4th to the 11th of September. Prior to our holiday we read some worrying negative reviews e.g Mrs.Lang in July 2021. We contacted Sykes to see if we could cancel the holiday and rebook to different accommodation but this was not possible. Sykes contacted the owner regarding our concerns and he accepted that in his words the apartment needed some TLC and that there was no damp. This apartment was in need of a deep clean, rooms with cobwebs floating from the ceilings, skirting boards had dust that looks like it's been there for years. On arrival we noticed the foisty smell and the smell of dog in the main bedroom. There was no welcome pack that usually greets visitors to a holiday home or a visitors guide book on the table. Photographs on different websites must have been taken many years ago when it appears that the apartment had been refurbished, unfortunately it doesn?t look like this now.
There are many negative reviews on different websites about the uncomfortable settees which hasn?t been addressed over the years. Unfortunately under the seat cushions of one settee was an accumulation of dirt which would have taken a long time to build up including crumbs and dog hairs. The bedding was very drab and the pillows were of a poor quality that did not give any support as they were very thinly stuffed. The laminate flooring in the apartment is very old and has moved showing gaps between boards and also some boards have been screwed down as they have probably warped. The carpet in the main bedroom is very old and tired. There is damp in the apartment as there are recent paint patches above the skirting boards and also flaking paint on the floor. The laminate in the bathroom is particularly bad as is the bathroom itself. The toilet seat fittings were disgusting as they were brown most probably due to urine droplets. Only one tea towel and two old bath towels are not sufficient for a one week stay. The kitchen worktop seams are showing signs of bubbling. The microwave is disgusting due to ageing, the internal surface has worn away and is now rusty. The extractor hood filters above the cooker were thick with grease and smelt of cooking fat. Pots and pans were supplied, however the two frying pans need replacing as they are not fit for use due to the non stick surfaces being badly damaged.
The garden doesn?t look like it does in the website photographs, the decking hasn?t been treated in years and the path at the back is badly broken away which makes for poor footing. The garden table that someone commented on as being rusty is only fit for the scrap man. For most of our stay the weather was really sunny and it would have been nice to sit in the garden for breakfast and also later in the day when returning from a day out but we couldn?t have sat at the table.
We didn?t need to contact the owner as nothing needed fixing but as Sykes had contacted him about our concerns we thought he might of addressed some of the issues and replaced the likes of the patio table and microwave and also contacted us to see if we were happy during our stay.
As the weather changed on our last days we decided to leave on the Friday rather than spend the rest of the holiday in the apartment. We have stayed in a lot of good holiday accommodation throughout the UK but this is the worst. On our last day as we always do in holiday accommodation, we tidied the apartment and attempted to use the vacuum cleaner which again was not fit for purpose as the dust collector latch wouldn?t hold the dust collector to the cleaner handle. We have taken photos of the things that we have noted in this review as proof to the condition of the apartment.
Our experience with Sykes customer care is poor as they did not contact us after raising a case number, we had to contact them after 10 days. We feel as if they took the side of the owner based on his comments.
Stayed here for a week in early may. Located in the Shabbington part of town. The accommodation smelt stale and was unclean. The equipment was basically and the furniture/ beds were uncomfortable. Would not recommend.
Stay Spoilt by Upstairs Guests
Stayed at this Apartment with Family and 2 small dogs last year and had a fab time. The Accomodation is first class. In a great location.
But this year the stay was spoilt by the upstairs guests coming home in the early hours every night drunk,smoking outside our bedroom window, and making the security light flash in and off.
Whilst our washing was drying on the line in the Garden,they lit and smoked cigarettes.
They lit cigarettes in the doorway which also created a horrible smell.
The guide folder provided by the owners states that the property is a NO SMOKING BUILDING, inc the communal areas, Garden & Drive/Front of the House, but clearly this was ignored.
This has put me off staying here again unfortunately.
The Accomodation however, is first class. In a great location.
good pet friendly accommodation
Location excellent and good base from which to explore. Within walking distance of shops and dog friendly beach. Large space for off road parking.Amenities very good and the apartment is large, modern, with large bedrooms and comfy beds.Back garden is enclosed and ideal for dogs. Free wi-fi which is a bonus and a must these days. The only drawback is the lounge furniture which is not very comfortable and the chairs around the table could do with seat cushions, as being wood they were hard to sit on at mealtimes.
The owners were very friendly and helpful. Lovely apartment-perfect for what we wanted. Beds were extremely comfy! Overall very happy with our stay.
