We had a brilliant week in this lovely Bungalow, very spacious for six adults. Very very well equipped, thought of everything even Wi Fi. A lovely location in a quite spot, easy walking distance to the beach and to all local beauty spots. The back garden was very private and secure. A pleasure to come home to after a long day out. To add to this great property a genuinely lovely couple, very easy to speak to and very understanding especially when I accidentally broke a mug. Sorry!. Excellent experience for my very own first booking on trip advisor. We had a Wonderful time.
Many Thanks Mike and Jane

We were lucky to have good weather whilst at Dolphins, which gave us the opportunity to enjoy the lovely private and secure level back garden, perfect for families with children. The property is spacious, clean and homely, the wifi connection a bonus. The owners are very welcoming and there on collecting the key to show you around and answer any queries. The beach is lovely both during the day (take bottom cushions/collapsible chairs!) or for an evening sunset walk. We visited Rye (Ypres tower, church with cat, Mermaid St, quayside) Hastings (old town and fishing areas) Lewes (castle and high street) Brighton (pavilion/cultural area/pier) Bexhill seafront, Battle, Pevensey castle walls which you can walk around free, Birling Gap - don't go too near the edge!, and of course Eastbourne (Green Almond veggie restaurant yummy). Managed to catch the last day of Eastbourne Airbourne which was great free entertainment . We spotted the resident garden squirrel and street fox which was cool. Keep an eye on the hallway barometer , it seems to work very well! Excellent cafes in all areas mentioned, but parking charges soon mount up - especially in Brighton, be sure to miss the rush hour here as traffic can be awful. All in all an excellent holiday in a part of the country we had never visited before, made even better by having a lovely cottage with great parking to return to.

“Honest Host you can Trust”
Reviewed June 20, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I have taken rental properties numerous times over many years and usually found the owner to have included one or two fibs and/or two or three exaggerations in the property description.

None of that at Dolphins. This is an owner who delivers. There is no need for me to go in to details because it is all there and it is all very good.

Peace is offered and it is truly peaceful - especially in the garden of mature and varied trees and shrubs framing an elegant lawn.

Gushing reports are not my style but I have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone thinking about it.

Here is an owner who understands hospitality and puts customer satisfaction at the heart of his mission. Well done and thanks.

We were met by the owner who showed us around and could not have been kinder. The bungalow was very comfortable and clean, although it was looking a little tired and could use freshening up! Only 2 little suggestions, a newer TV would be good and for disabled use a suite that would be easier to get in and out off jay he helpful. A lovely holiday not spoiled by poor weatherl

Thank you very much for your review and your kind comments. Since we stated renting out our holiday home 8 years ago we have always regarded Dolphins as a work in progress.Each year we try to upgrade some of the facilities we offer depending on the time and money available. Our main priority has always remained to offer a clean comfortable and enjoyable home that offers great value for money to all our guests.

Needed to escape for the excitement of Belgium for Christmas (yawn)

The cottage is WYSIWYG, a nice bungalow a 100 yards for the beach and a similar distance from the local amenities

The Dolphins is really quite, clean and full of the things that you need when on holiday. There's nothing mega about the bungalow (it doesn't have fantastic views or a swimming pool) but what it has would make you want to return time and time again.
