Sadly this was a most disappointing stay. The house smelt of damp, was not clean, ground floor loo didn't flush, first floor loo door would not close, the kitchen pans were very old and greasy, windows were painted up and would not open, poor quality furniture throughout and the worst thing was finding blood stains on a duvet when taking off the cover at the end of our stay. A greater disappointment was that the owner disputed this despite photographic evidence, and Sykes Cottages said they could not help. Please do not stay here.

Great accommodation for two families.. Very well equipped and an extremely good location, the only small drawback is parking. Highly recommended.

Dirty, damp, cramped and noisy.. Certainly not worth the high price we paid for a week. Do you never inspect the properties you list? The house was very dirty in places. I contacted the owner and he apologised and offered to send the cleaner. We didn't want this disruption during our holiday so said no. We found pizza crust and an old sock under a sofa and dog hair all over the stairs. On opening a drawer in the kitchen we found a baking tray covered with greasy foil with chips still attached. Right outside the kitchen window was a revolting mess of pigeon poo - it streaked the kitchen window and smelled awful so we were unable to open the window. This is obviously an ongoing problem as there was torn and dirty netting across the back of the house that was supposed to deter pigeons but every day there were several trapped under the netting. The back bedroom downstairs was so damp and smelled so badly of mould that we couldn't let my grandson sleep there and he had sleep on sofa cushions in another room. It was also very cramped. The dining table (which had 6 chairs for 8 people) is pushed against the wall behind a sofa and can not be used unless you rearrange the furniture in the room. Lots of noise from the neighbours and the Wetherspoons opposite. The house's main plus point is that it's close to the beach. All in all, the house could be nice, but needs a through clean and the damp and pigeon problems need sorting out. I have photos if you'd like to see them.

We had a great time at Sandsview.. The views across the beach and harbour are terrific. We had everything we needed, including SKY TV for the kids and an Internet connection. Two showers and three loos definitely helps congestion when there are eight in the house. The house is convenient for the beach, the shops and Ramsgate's attractions. And there is plenty to do in and around Ramsgate; Dover Castle is a must visit for a day; the Ramsgate Tunnels; the RAF Museum and Spitfire Museum at Manston and Reculver Towers The only downside is the parking; very few spaces in front of the house and they were generally full, but there is plenty of free parking within 5 minutes walk of the house. We would definitely recommend Sandsview to friends and family.

We had a great time and would recommend Sandsview to anyone that loves a typical English seaside holiday.. There were 4 generations in our party and each one enjoyed their time. The house was was adequate and the bedrooms very spacious . If I have to be picky, the house is in keeping its age and showing signs of needing repair

The house is wonderfully situated, so near to the beach.. Lots of room, comfortable beds, fantastically clean. The large sitting room has a balcony where you can see the harbour and the beach. This is the third time we've hired Sandsview, I highly recommend it.

Location excellent for beach, town and eating out.. Hard to open most windows. Pigeon pooh and rubbish outside kitchen window was nasty. The parking was chaotic but the neighbours are relaxed and welcoming.

We knew parking was an issue but did not account for some days not even being able to get close enough to drop off a less mobile party member.. It is a steep walk up to the property and alternative parking involves walking down some steep steps. The windows to the rear of the property looked out onto an area inhabited by pigeons, together with their mess. Not a pretty sight when preparing food and eating in the kitchen. Also because of this problem we could not open any windows to the rear. We were unable to use the dining table as it is enclosed by the large sofa in the sitting room. Sheets were clean but pillows and duvets were stained. Good location but needs a good clean outside and bedding certainly needs replacing.

The house was well equipped with everything needed for a family, the location was excellent, few little things needed updated but did not effect our holiday.. I would certainly book again and recommend this place to others

Super house in a great location a minutes walk away from the beach, the fabulous dog friendly Green Tara bar and Wetherspoons- unfortunately not dog friendly.. Five minutes from town centre . The only problem was parking on the terrace if you dropped on a place great otherwise it was pay and display or free road side parking a walk away up,the hill but that was the only downside Great house great location

Wonderful old terrace house with atmosphere, short to the main beach of Ramsgate and to the shops and restaurants.. Spacious sleeping rooms and kitchen with all you need. Two big bathrooms and an own toilet for the sleeping room at second flor. Beautiful view of harbour, Royal Victoria Pavillion and Main beach. Very friendly neighbours, especially dog-friendly. Dog beach is a bit to walk from May til September, when dogs are not allowed at Main beach. The balcony looks a bit shaky, its floor needs renovation. I wouldn't walk on it with more than 2 people at same time. OK, parking is a problem, but we were warned about that.

It was a nice comfortable and clean house in a great location.. The decor was a bit dated but the house functions well and met all of our needs. I would be happy to return!

Sandsview is not suitable for anybody with mobility issues.. The approach is up a hill and the house is on three levels. Add to that, parking is a major problem. You may find a space to park on the cliff top road. This can be accessed via the nearby lift but this is occasionally out of order and only operates between 10am and 6pm. Otherwise, a steep climb and steps. On the plus side, the owner is friendly and helpful and the property is well equipped and comfortable. A strong WiFi signal and three TVs ensure entertainment is available. Excellent restaurants within a very short walk - Greek, Turkish , English plus, of course, fish & chips.

I visited Sandsview with my wife and two small children and have to say we had the best week away we have ever had as a family! The house itself is situated in a side road overlooking the beautiful coast and within a few minutes walk from loads of bars, restaurants and cafes. It is really spacious and the kids loved running up and down the stairs and were amazed at how big it was as our house is much smaller. Parking outside the house was quite tricky but there is free parking within a few minutes walk and there was space to quickly park outside to unload the car. We have already booked to return to Sandsview (where the weather will hopefully be warmer!) and would thoroughly recommended this lovely holiday home.

We had a fabulous week in this centrally based, spacious,comfortable and warm house with great views.. We would certainly go there again. The house overlooks a large 'weatherspoons' but we were not bothered by any noise etc. Parking is tricky but you are warned about this and we managed fine Just to note,if you want to make fresh coffee there is no coffee maker TO THE OWNER NOT FOR PUBLICATION Also a note to the owner - there is only a yale key provided to the door which could easily be opened by breaking the glass in the door itself ( this happened to us at home by intruders). To make it more secure a 'chubb' key should be provided as the lock is there. Workmen from another property left a lot of rubbish outside the house so the owner may want to know this

Ramsgate was lovely but the house could have been better.. There wasn't enough crockery, the kitchen got crowded with more than two people in it, and at first the downstairs still smelt of damp/drains, although this was rectified once we notified the owner of the probem. Also, there was too much furniture in the sitting room - we had to push the heavy four-seater settee away from the table before seven of us could sit at the table, and the dining chairs were cumbersome - and there were only six of them. As one person said, it looked as if they bought a job lot off ebay! Certainly it could have done without the bulky tip-up armchair. Two of the bedrooms were minimally furnished, too, and mattress and pillow protectors are needed.. With better furniture, it would be a much pleasanter place to stay.

Nothing connected up lamps that don’t plug in.. DVD player didn’t work smell in downstairs bathroom because we didn’t use that shower because it trickled whereas the other was like a pressure washer. Not to mention the dripping tap with water hammer like a road drill. The fridge in the kitchen is rediculously noisy and the mentioned MP3 player was without a power lead or any modern useful ports. However it’s a beautiful house and the most amazing view right on the beach by the royal pavilion. We had a lovely week but it wasn’t as top notch as bluebird cottage in west runton.

Ok...so as we were forewarned by other reviews, parking was a HUGE problem outside the property. It is a small cul-de-sac which goes into a point with double yellow lines. Only 3 properties were holiday lets so other homeowners had put a boat trailer there which takes up at least 2 car spaces and then there were those with large vans. Most days we had to walk about half a mile to get to the car before we could start out on visiting other places in the area, such as Broadstairs, Dover etc. The rooms were all of a good size for our family of 5 but by the 2nd night we could no longer use the ground floor twin room and the ground floor bathroom due to the stale, mouldy smell permeating from the lower basement (that was not open to holiday makers so no clear air was allowed to circulate) ...this made it so we couldn't have those particular windows open because that would only allow stale air into the bedroom and bathroom. The top floor bedroom was a joy to use (once we removed the memory foam topper from the bed - much too soft). The views were lovely and you get your own secret lav in the wardrobe! The kitchen was a little smaller than it looked in the photos, however we had to eat at the kitchen table as there wasn't much room to all fit around the dining room table which had been squashed into the lounge that already housed two large sofas and a lazeeboy chair plus cupboard. The views from the lounge, especially with the lit up boats at night, were lovely although the floor of the balcony was a bit wobbly... All in all, we had a good stay and it is a very pleasant place to stay ( the Royal Pavilion which is now a Wetherspoons was due to open after we were to leave so I don't know about the extra noise in the evening...) Yes we had a pleasant stay until Thursday night around 10.30pm when carnival lorries started to turn up and set up for the weekend's carnival which we had not been aware of. The roads were being closed which made us anxious so we packed up and decided to leave a day early. My husband had to collect the car from right over on the cliff tops and carnival security tried to stop him coming up to Kent Terrace to fetch all our belongings - and us! After a few heated words, they let him through. So we lost a day of our holiday due to this...as did the other 2 families holidaying on the Kent Terrace who had had the same idea. Unfortunately, I would only recommend the property if you are definitely not going to want to use your car much because even carrying your heavy bags of grocery shopping from any distance is a pain when you're on holiday. Lovely building, pleasant area but needs parking space.

The house has everything you need to provide you with a relaxing holiday. Large comfortable rooms with adequate amount of bathrooms and even a hidden toilet and hand basin in second floor bedroom. Lovely sitting on balcony watching the sun rise and fall over the sea to the sound of the gulls. Outside and balcony could do with a little TLC but did not spoil our overall impression of the building. The one downside is lack of parking space so on the second day, after we managed to park near the house, we did not use the car again. Instead we used the excellent bus service to take us anywhere we wanted to visit. Shops, restaurants and pubs are on the doorstep so no need to walk far if you don't want to. Thoroughly enjoyed holiday.

Loved the accommodation, it met all our requirements and more.. Waking up to the sound of seagulls and looking out on the sea was amazing. The only downside was the lack of parking spaces although we were told about this. Will certainly use Sykes Cottages again.

Sigh. Could be so great, such a beautiful building in a great location. It desperately need updating. At least the original windows are still in. Week in this place was a disaster: a hidden step to bathroom caused my mum to fall on arrival. One broken arm with metal plate put in a week later.... Could have really made a big deal about the step but actually just wanted to go home .

The location of the property was very good in terms of the view over the harbour and sands, and the proximity to the seafront.. Sandsview was a very comfortable base for one or two families. The décor was attractive and communal rooms were good to relax in. The bedrooms enabled flexibility in terms of suitability for a mixed party. The beds were very comfortable, everyone had a good night's sleep each night! Overall an excellent property.

We loved the weekend, we had a fantastic time, made better by the quality and comfort of the accommodation. There were 8 people in our party and the accommodation was perfect, no-one got under anyone's feet and there was ample room for everyone. I would certainly like to book the house again in the future.
