We thoroughly enjoyed our stay which is the second time we have been.
We had a very good week again (third time we have stayed in Sunnnybank). The family enjoys coming together for a week every other year and Sunnybank is an ideal location with plenty of space for the children and short walks to the beaches. Hopefully, we will return. Thanks for your helpful and friendly service.
We had the most amazing stay last week. We loved the location of Sunnybank. and made the most of the proximity to the tennis courts and the many beautiful beaches. We were impressed with the quick service when we called in about a toilet flush problem. Many thanks indeed for a memorable holiday.
Very much. We had excellent weather for our stay but the house is big enough for children to play indoors when it's wet outside.
We had a wonderful time. All the above numbers should be 5 (I couldn’t move the bar). We wondered whether the cleaners were different from last year as the house was spotlessly clean. Also we appreciated the welcome pack of kitchen essentials. Just disappointed that someone else has got in before us for 2020!!
A lovely place for 3 generations to stay in. It was very well equipped and we enjoyed the space and the use of the garden.
We enjoyed our stay very much. We particularly like the size and location of the house. We are grateful to the owners and Toad Hall Cottages for addressing the points we raised in our feedback last year. We encountered a problem with a leaky roof during out stay but this was dealt with promptly and efficiently by Toad Hall Cottages. We've already provisionally booked to go back for a week next Easter.
We loved our stay, it suited our large family Christmas perfectly and the style of the house was informal and cosy. The kitchen facilities were great, there was ample big platters, pots and serving dishes which is exactly what we needed for our big family gathering. Just white wine glasses were a bit short. The location is second to none and makes for an incredibly easy relaxed holiday. I really hope this house is able to be retained as is and not over-modernised at any point.
I was very aware that we ought to leave the property spotless when we left. However it is a large property and would have taken me at least 4 hours to do this properly. We had to be out at 10:00 am so it was just not possible to do this properly. Also the mop provided for washing the floors was useless. All these are minor complaints as we loved the house, its position and thought it really well provided with equiptment.
Really sorry about the useless mop; we'll get it replaced. Delighted however that you all had an enjoyable holiday.

I found the toad hall team very helpful and pleasant to deal with. Will definitely use toad hall again.
Just fantastic and enjoyed by three generations and a three legged dog!
We love the house. We have been for a week of the Easter holidays for each of the last three years and we have already provisionally booked for 2018. The location is fantastic. We love the space and the house in generally very well appointed. Also, the kitchen is now very bright after the trees on that side have been cut down and replaced by a fence. However, there are a few niggles. The fact that we are not allowed to control the heating is irritating. Last where when the weather was bad and we were home on some afternoons we were cold and would have liked to have put the heating on. This year when the weather was good and we had to open the windows to control the heat (because the thermostat was locked behind a bizarre perspex box). We're sensible people and if allowed to control the heating I strongly believe we would be more comfortable (and happier) at either very little or no additional cost to the owner overall. Also, we would have appreciated a non-stick frying pan as we attempted pancakes and it did not go so well and some harder pillows. Many thanks, Alex Matthews
Thank you for your feedback and we are delighted that you enjoyed your return visit again. The new fence throws a lot more light into the kitchen, lovely isn't it. The owners are most grateful for all feedback to which end the saucepan has been replaced with a brand new non-stick pan and new harder pillows are in place. The elaborate new heating system is remotely operated and can be altered in a moment, via the housekeeper or now, via user-friendly heating controls which the owners have put in place, and thank you for your feedback. We look forward to welcoming you back next year. The Toad Hall Team
