“It was a beautiful spacious house with a lot of convenient things.”
The warm water supplies could be better.

“Internet no longer worked after 3 days, but this was passed on in advance.”
The downstairs toilet did not flush properly. Everything else fine.
“We were attending an event in Loughrea, so this was perfectly located!”
The house and facilities are terrific, and it is very good value. The only downsides were: 1. The broadband was almost useless (despite being mentioned as a free facility). I needed this for my business. I had to visit a phone shop in town, and even that didn't work. The landlady then admitted "I really need to change my provided". 2. The heating / hot water system failed while we were there. The landlady sent someone out to "restart it" via an invisible and almost inaccessible switch - but not before we had all had cold showers! It then failed again. Sykes Cottages were absolutely terrific at all stages of the booking process - I wish we had been able to talk to them when things went wrong! Patrick
