    • “This holiday lodge had everything you would want.”

    Mrs Robb, Hexham, December 2018

    • “Claife View Lodge - Ambleside 77 We stayed here for a weeks holiday in November 2018. This was booked through Sykes Cottages as the lodge is privately owned. On arrival the lodge was freezing cold, the heating had not been on for days and it would have been nice and welcoming, to arrive to a warm lodge especially this time of year. The lodge did not appear to be very clean. The basics were fine; clean bedding, clean toilet and shower, and main floor areas ok. We moved the coffee table to make more space for our little baby and noticed the rug was quite stained and the part of the rug under the coffee table had not been hoovered for a while! We attempted to hoover ourselves but the hoover was pretty useless. The bathroom door handle was broken and we reported this 2 days after our arrival, and it was finally repaired the day before we went home. There wasn’t much storage in the kitchen as the cupboards were all full of kitchen equipment (not sure it was all necessary!) so we stored stuff on top of the kitchen cupboards only to discover it was thick of dust and very greasy. We noticed that the extractor fan wasn’t even connected to anything. Skirting boards were grubby especially near kitchen bin, so we cleaned this ourselves. (Who wants to clean while they are on holiday?!) There was lots of dirt and old sweets etc under both sofas. The shower screen leaked everytime you used the shower and the grout/sealant was mouldy in places. We found a hairball on top of bathroom cabinet and hairs/dust behind bathroom door. We found food smears on inside of curtains in living room, and inside of windows were covered in fingerprints. Decking area could do with a jet wash after the summer. We reported these issues to Sykes Cottages when informing them of the broken door handle. The cleaning team did visit the following day and cleaned the floors, removed hairs from behind door and left fresh towels but did not action the other issues. However, it did make us feel a little more comfortable about staying there the rest of our holiday. We had an ok holiday, the site is nice, clubhouse is canny, and the site is in a great location. However, this lodge needs a deep clean and a bit of TLC asap! Hopefully no one else will feel the way we felt while staying there, or have to do their own cleaning whilst on holiday, and that the owners of this lodge have dealt with all the issues we informed them of! Lastly, the third bedroom is quite small, with no cupboard space and is definetly a bedroom for children. I don’t think the lodge is really suitable for 6 adults.”

    Mrs Shepherd, Gateshead, November 2018

    • “We arrived at white cross bay after the designated check in time, but still had to wait over an hour to access our accomadation as cleaners were still busy. This was not acceptable as we had a tired toddler in our party. When we did get in to our lodge we found it wasn’t cleaned to a very good standard, cobwebs in the bedrooms, and under sofas had not been vacuumed, as were still dirty. Also there was six of us in our party, so we expected enough towels for us all, however this was not the case as there were no towels left in master bedroom, this was very disappointing, we asked at reception for extra towels but were told that they did not provide any linen for our lodge, so we had to go out and buy towels, this was very inconvenient. Beds in one of the twin rooms were very uncomfortable and the sheet provided on one bed was awful and not a proper sheet. We have booked with Sykes before and were pleased with our accomatation, but were disappointed this time so will think twice before booking again, especially for the price we paid.”

    Mrs Douglass, South Shields, August 2018

    • “Fantastic lodge, in a excellent location. The lodge exceeded our expectations beds were very comfortable and hot tub was definitely a added extra to enjoy. Spotless and would highly recommend. The park do require for you to book in for swimming at busy times but never was a issue and always managed to being able to book on!”

    Mr Porter, Warrington, June 2018

    • “The hot tub was glorious. Well maintained easy to use. We made sure that we did adhere to all the hygiene notices and it was also serviced whilst we were there. The kitchen was well equipped. Beds comfortable. The location was great and it was ideal for our two grandchildren. All in all a lovely place to be. I know you had no control over this, but our weather was FANTASTIC all week. Would recommend Whitecross Bay Resort and Claife View Lodge to anyone.”

    Mr Smith, Oakham, May 2018

    • “A lovely lodge on one of the best spots on the site. A real home from home, in fact I think I could live there!”

    Mrs Lawless, Northwich, October 2017

    • “Great communication from yourselves, fantastic accommodation and a great location. An excellent week with no issues whatsoever.”

    Mr Crump, Wrexham, May 2017
