My house is also a B&B and has lots of stairs so to save tripping over wires and keep un plugging, wondered whether a cordless vac would be the answer to my prayers.

I recently bought a GTECH great for quick clean ups, mine is basic model but they do a range - also I think Lakeland sell them and sometimes they have offers

I've got a Dyson animal 34 and its a pain in the arse, attachments are useless and it keeps cutting out, would not recommend!

Watching as I really want a cordless dyson but don't know if I can justify it!

We've had the Dyson DC59 for a few months and are pretty pleased with it, the main problem for us is storage next to a plug socket, we keep our proper vac under the stairs but no electricity there. We use it about half and half full length and as a short hand-held, it is a bit fiddly to change the attachments. It also fills up very quickly, we can do the whole house on one charge but need to empty the cylinder halfway round (we have cats). The construction feels a bit flimsy, I keep expecting the cylinder part to crack. If anyone has long hair you need to clear out the rollers fairly often too, and wash the filter monthly. Ours was effectively free as we paid for it with Nectar points, don't think it's worth the £300 it costs to be honest. It is SO handy compared to getting out the big vac though. Picks up cat hair well too.

We love our dyson. My husband actually initiated the purchase as he was impressed with the design/mechanics of the thing. He uses it more than I do!

Thanks all, I have a normal dyson with a cord and its had 2 new hoses and the motor repaired so I feel that maybe they aren't so reliable. Have been looking at the new GTEC, trying to find some reviews
