  • “We stayed at 22 Dart Marina last year and had a very peaceful holiday, hence booking again this year.”

    Several weeks before our holiday was due I saw a review about scaffolding and was concerned. I sent an email asking the question if scaffolding would be up during our holiday as if it was I would cancel. I suffer from anxiety and this holiday was to help with that. The reply was there shouldn’t be any. I again asked as Contractors and scaffolding have to be booked in advance so they should have an idea. They said there may be scaffolding but if there was they would notify us in advance. ...

    Several weeks before our holiday was due I saw a review about scaffolding and was concerned. I sent an email asking the question if scaffolding would be up during our holiday as if it was I would cancel. I suffer from anxiety and this holiday was to help with that. The reply was there shouldn’t be any. I again asked as Contractors and scaffolding have to be booked in advance so they should have an idea. They said there may be scaffolding but if there was they would notify us in advance. We arrived early at the apartment and saw scaffolding on the side of the building but obviously couldn’t see to the front. When we got the keys and went in we were horrified. Scaffolding was at the side of the bay window restricting part of the view into Dartmouth and was very unsightly. We picked this apartment as there are two swivel chairs in the window for you to sit and admire the view. The scaffolding was literally 6 inches from the window. I telephoned the office and was told ‘but it only restricted part of the view’ which was not helpful. On the Monday morning as we were sat having our breakfast 3 workmen arrived and came on to the scaffolding through the hatch next to the window. They couldn’t help but look through the window at us. They made several trips up and down the ladder with equipment. I rang the number provided and got through to the Chester office (Sykes holidays) I was very upset about the attitude of the phone call. The lady said they had told us there may be scaffolding and what am I wanting. I told her they had only answered my question and they definitely didn’t fulfil their promise in letting us know beforehand. They said they only had a day’s notice. My sister went to speak to the workmen and they said the scaffolding had been up a week and they had been booked in for the job. In the end I was so upset and stressed my husband took the call. He had the same response and asked why they hadn’t told us there WAS scaffolding not there may be. In the end he came off the phone not getting anywhere. I immediately sent an email with photos to which I am still waiting for a reply. Looking at the 1 star reviews I won’t be getting a reply. Also sent to Coast and Country. I received an acknowledgement stating terms and conditions of booking. On re-reading the terms and conditions I noted it says they are not responsible for any noise or building work on neighbouring properties. The work is being carried out on the property not on a neighbours. We stayed out all day hoping the workmen had gone when we got back and they hadn’t. During the week we were having to get up early and dressed before they arrived at 9.00 a.m. and stay out all day. Not conducive of the relaxing holiday we were hoping for. I have sent numerous emails and not received any feedback yet. By Thursday we had had enough and came home a day early. We handed the keys in at the Dartmouth office early afternoon and briefly told the lady. She looked on the computer at our account. She said she wasn’t aware as she had been working from home last week. We came home Thursday and on Friday morning my husband received a call at about 10.50 asking when we were going to hand the keys in. Obviously this didn’t go down well as we had not received one call during our stay about our complaint. I did write a letter to the owner and left it with her post in the apartment. Hopefully we will get a reply from this. There was an entry in the Visitors Book saying they were an infirm couple who booked it for the view and the holiday was ruined by the scaffolding in June/July. The website states that external decoration is being carried out on the Dart Marina complex from April to August 2021 which incidentally is right at the bottom of the page and obviously inaccurate. As I write this I am still awaiting a response.

About the location

DARTMOUTH

Totnes 12 miles.

Dartmouth lies on the banks of the beautiful River Dart estuary in the popular and picturesque South Hams area of South Devon. Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to the coast, Dartmouth is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Devon. It offers a stunning waterfront, ancient narrow streets lined with boutique shops, restaurants and art galleries plus many local events such as the annual Dart Music Festival and the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta, along with the Dartmouth Food Festival held every October. There are many interesting cycling and walking routes around Dartmouth, including the South West Coast Path, the Dart Valley Trail and plenty of quiet country lanes. A trip on the Dartmouth Steam Railway through picturesque countryside to Paignton is a must, and so is a boat trip across to Kingswear and on to Brixham, a pretty little harbour town. For those seeking some beach activities, there is a wide choice in the South Hams area such as Blue Flag Award winner Blackpool Sands, and Slapton Sands, both extremely popular and just a stone's throw from Dartmouth. A relaxing location in South Devon.

The twin beds in the second bedroom can be zipped together to make a super-King. This must be requested at the time of booking.

Pebble effect fire in the lounge is for decorative purposes only.

Please be advised that the external decoration of the Dart Marina complex is being undertaken between April 2021 - August 2021. Please call the local office for further information on 01803 839499.
