This was one of the nicest holiday cottages my friends and I have stayed in. Fantastic location for enjoying the delights of the Old Town. The owner greeted us upon arrival and had provided us with all of the essentials we needed, removing the need to go shopping. The cottage fully provided everything we needed for our stay. Comfortable beds, large bathroom with bath and shower and a really well-equipped kitchen. ***** Date of arrival - March 25, 2019

Previous Customer,

The property was spotless and tidy and easy to keep tidy with 4 children and we loved the bathroom it was massive and the fish shop is just outside with everything else we loved it that much we've booked agen for April could not ask for a better holiday home

Miss Debbie S,

The cottage was well equipped and tastefully decorated. A nice touch was having the basics of tea, coffee, milk, bread, fruit and cold drinks supplied.

K B,

Dolphin Cottage , Hastings The house was very central in the old fishing village. Well stocked kitchen and a great welcome by the owner who gave us a fabulous welcome of goodies, wine, fresh fruit, baked goods, milk etc. Thank you.

Mrs Janice V,

Dolphin Cottage was an absolute delight. Perfectly positioned adjacent to the East Cliff in Hastings and in the old town. The cottage is well equipped and many thanks to the owner for the welcome pack and for meeting us and showing us around. We and our boys (15 and 12) had a fantastic week exploring Hastings and visiting Battle, Brighton, Dover Castle, Rye, Camber and many other other places! The car parking was easy in the public car park 300 yards from the cottage and we never had trouble finding a space even though it was half term week and busy. The location came into its own in the evenings when we would walk out to find somewhere to eat - the restaurant at the pier is great. Would 100% recommend to families or couples looking for a comfortable cottage close to amenities. We hope to return!
