    “Heating needs to be sorted out.”

    We had to take a kettle of hot water up stairs every day to wash as you only got a cupful of warm water out of tap also we noticed the heating only comes on in middle of night by accident we found this out as we had to take it in turns to sleep downstairs with dog . She is a rescue and gets frightened at the train noise we was okey with the trains . In the evening s it got a bit chilly but there was no heating I was not going to muck around with it as I’m not familiar with this sort of thing ...

She is a rescue and gets frightened at the train noise we was okey with the trains . In the evening s it got a bit chilly but there was no heating I was not going to muck around with it as I’m not familiar with this sort of thing so all in all it was not a good holiday one more thing about dog rules and regulations it dose need to be put on Sykes web site not wait until 3 days before you go on holiday. We would not have booked this property .sorry for this review but it all NEEDS to be addressed

    We thank you and appreciate all feedback good or bad as this allows us to keep up with guest expectations. However, upon receiving the report regarding the apparent issues we attended the property as a matter of urgency that day, only to find the property in good working order. Room temprature is clearly displayed on the digital thermostats and adjusted simply by the up/down arrows. Hot water to the sinks is via a small electric boiler of which was also found to be in good working order. Both the above explained upon my visit. Regarding the dog rules we are merely bringing your attention to the terms and conditions of your booking; all for the safety and comfort of neighbouring properties and following guests.
