who where and when

Advantages: nice staff
Disadvantages: flaws in search facility

booked a 5 night break last month. This was shortly after their new-look website went live so I’ve got a pretty good perspective to give you all here, I feel. I had been looking for a holiday to fit the rigid dates I had booked off work and, deary me, let ...

Review of Sykescottages.co.uk

Sykes cottages 'Don't care attitude' Again!

Advantages: None
Disadvantages: Incomplete and misleading information

I have read the two previous reviews on Sykes Cottages and have to agree with the general view that once they have the booking they are not interested in any complaint and just pass on responsibility to the owner. In our case we booked a week in a cottag ...
