How helpful are Helpful holiday's?

AdvantagesEasy navigation


"With the wife deciding that we would go on holiday in Cornwall this year, I had no idea where to start looking. A simple search of holiday cottages in Cornwall brought up the name Helpful holidays.co.uk. The good thing that stands out with this company from the rest is that they only have cottages in Devon, Cornwall, Somerset, Dorset. Don't think for one minute though that you have limited choice as there is a huge range of cottages from your 2 bedroom ..." Read review

Quick review of helpfulholidays.co.uk

"I checked availability of a cottage which had been shown as available for over a month, and was told that it was available and to book via the web site. I did this and received an e-mail confirming my booking. Over a day later, I received another e-mail saying that it was not available for the dates I thought I had booked. Needless to say the family was very annoyed. There was no apology, and the attitude was arrogant to say the least. I booked with another company, and within a day, the holiday was arranged, confirmed and paid, all without the less than "Helpful" attitude of this company!

We were unhappy with many areas of the cottage - the oven hadn't been cleaned in months & set off the fire alarm every time we cooked. The back door had a big gap all the way round causing a terrible draft when sitting at the ..." Read review

Not living up to the Helpfull Name- Draystone Cawsands

AdvantagesGeneraly it works well or did in previous years

DisadvantagesYou pay a premium for the service and if it goes wrong Helpful are not that Helpful

"We have booked holidays with Helpful Holidays before and in general it has all worked well, but year it was not so great. Nothing disastrous, but similar to another reviewer, the cottage had obviously not been decorated of given much maintenance for several years. Photographs online were old and from very selective angles and when feedback was given the owner was initially dismissive and Helpful Holidays, while very polite were not helpful at all ..."
