    “Boiler was off and property really cold on arrival - suspected leaking radiator too.”


    Fortunately I knew where Sykes office was and it was just before 5pm (bonkers that check in is 5pm by the way) so ran round before they shut. Fortunately the maintenance team were available and they called round REALLY quickly and fixed us up - pleasant men by the way. They commented that the settings on the boiler had been cranked up to max so that would make it switch off. So it may be useful to restrict people from doing that -- or at least someone check the property on the day someone is due to arrive - it wasn't obvious whether it had been occupied recently so the leak might have gone unnoticed for a while.
