ProHolidaying with the comforts of home

ConsYou have to cook your own breakfast

Although I love going away on holiday and staying in hotels, I sometimes miss being able to do what I want when I want (even the 'do not disturb' on hotel doors does not always work!). A friend in work introduced us to this company, when she and some mates (I think there were about 10 of them in...

We have booked holidays with this company for approximately 4 years now, some 8 holidays. We have always found them to be professional and helpful, even when wanting to book a last minute break - they searched for properties for us and gave us plenty of details over the phone and didn't mind...

Stayed at CILCYCHWYN, Llanbedr. Not a good experience. Smelled bad, infested by mice and mould. Run down and not very clean. Bullet holes in the windows. Also said there was fishing available. It is about 3 miles up a steep hill (no vehicle access). Also told fishing in back garden - rubbish...

Our experience of booking through cottages 4 you was not a pleasant one. The cottage we booked, the Old Abbey at Treardur bay, Anglesey, was such a dissapointment. It was New Year and the pub advertised as 50 yards away was closed for renovation. All other pubs were ticket only. The beach was down a dark unlit road and closed off at night. We paid £500 and were offered just £50 refund after staying only 2 of 7 days. They maintained our contract was not with them but with the cottage owner, who, despite knowing how short a stay we had has offered nothing back. Avoid the Old Abbey and this company. Very poor service indeed. (Except when taking our money).

ProNone

ConsVery unprofessional -and they only want your money

I booked a cottage by phone in Sept 2011 (nearly one year in advance for a holiday week in August 2012 ) because the person who I spoke to when the booking was made said I didn't need to worry about booking in advance since they will only charge a reduced booking fee of £35 if I cancelled (...

ProGreat location and views. Plenty of hot water

ConsMany and varied

This may seem like a bit of a rant but at a cost of almost £900 for the week I believe I am entitled. In my opinion,smelly, dirty and dangerous would sum up the cottage in a sentence, it was booked in mid August at a cost of £834. A further £25 cash was to be left on departure for fuel to be...

“Awful customer service”

ProNone

ConsIf things go wrong your on your own

If anything goes wrong with your holiday cottages4you will claim that they are only a booking agency and you have to take any complaints up with the property owner but then they won't give you the owners details to contact them. After weeks of ringing and emailing trying to resolve the problems...
