Reviewed 15 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We spent another lovely,,happy time Christmas week at The Dolphins. We had lots of family visitors and it provided a warm, cosy retreat from the storms, gales and floods! We are looking forward to next time.

“Beautiful well kept bungalow”
Reviewed 3 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My husband and I stayed with my 90 year old Mum at Dolphins. It was so easy for her to get around as her mobility is poor. We all enjoyed our stay and the bungalow is clean and well kept with off road parking and a lovely secluded rear garden. A bonus for us was the weather as it was hot and sunny. The central heating was very efficient and we did use it in the chilly evenings. Would recommend to families also as beach along road and Eastbourne so near. Was welcomed by owners and a neighbour nearby on hand if there had been any problems. Thank you for such a lovely holiday.

“Lovely home from home - very clean and close to amenities :o)”
Reviewed 22 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We only had a short 3 night stay - but the house is fully equipped and was a real home from home. Great location, very clean and well presented.

Unfortunately the weather was awful when we were there so we did spend a lot of time in the bungalow but did have everything we needed. Although I would recommend taking some of your own towels as we were only given one (sml) bath towel and one hand towel per person,
Due to the weather - we did stay in warm and cosy and would have preferred a larger TV, so maybe something to consider upgrading in the future, but apart from that, this is a lovely holiday let and would recommend to others.

PS My daughter is a wheelchair user and the house was easily accessible so that was a great bonus for us as properties offering this as few and far between. We do hope to visit Dolphins again :o)

“Excellent accommodation”
Reviewed 19 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Our second stay at Dolphins was just as enjoyable as our first one a year ago. The bungalow is maintained to a very high standard and comfortable. The weather was wet and windy for most of our week and it was wonderful to have such a cosy place to return to where we could relax, watch dvd's, read, play games or take a nap! Pevensey Bay is a great location and has enough small stores and take-aways in walking distance to provide a different meal every night.
