Misleading and dirty
Couldn't agree more with the previous review. When we arrived the bins were overflowing. We had booked before the pandemic, as we were "allowed" to travel following government guidelines we hoped the property would be immaculate with the pandemic in mind. This was not the case. We had to antibacterial wipe all door handles, light switches (which were visibly dirty). The shower and bath were dirty, the oven was filthy and one of our guests had the misfortune of losing her phone down the side of the sofa which needless to say was bogging and didn't look like it had ever been cleaned. We have complained to Sykes who have been totally unhelpful. We would not book to go on holiday with Sykes again. Unfortunately we read the previous review after we'd booked. If you are in the same situation, I would highly recommend asking for an alternative cottage. Although the location is relatively good. There is a housing estate on top of the cottage and the lack of cleanliness was potentially a risk to health. Take antibacterial wipes, cleaning spray and cloths if you still intend to go. We ended up putting our rubbish in a neighbour's bin in the early hours and taking all our recycling to a nearby household waste disposal. Disgusted
