    “Although the property was superficially clean it was generally grubby/filthy.”


    Two bags of laundry were left in the hallway - these were, however, removed the next day after we had alerted Sykes. We contacted Sykes to complain about the issues of dirt, missing equipment (no Dyson as listed) and broken blind in the kitchen area. The en-suite was unusable as it was so filthy - old rust and dirt on the shower cable and caked on soap in the shower tray. The panel behind the toilet in the main bathroom was coming away from the wall. Both bathrooms had rusty shower caddies that rendered them unusable. The balcony area had not been cleaned - the table and chairs were filthy (as was one of the seat covers) and there was old food debris on the floor. Photos were attached and sent to Sykes - we did not here back during our holiday. We happened to speak with a couple of the complex cleaners (not the ones involved in our apartment on this occasion) and they informed us that the Dyson had been missing for a considerable period of time; also that the blind had been broken for a considerable period of time - both had been reported on several occasions. As Sykes and the owner have been made aware of these issues we feel that they should have been addressed before letting out the apartment again - we paid a considerable sum of money for the apartment and it was substandard. We are still waiting to hear what Sykes is going to do about this.
