“Had a wonderful time staying at Dolphina. It is really charmingly decorated, the bed is super comfy, great shower, the garden catches the sun all day so lovely for morning coffee and an early evening glass of wine. The cottage has everything you need, and there was a lovely welcome 'box' on arrival. The location is perfect for visiting lots of major attractions on the coast and inland. There is a wonderful beach so close that on a windy night you can hear the waves landing. The hosts are a lovely couple. Highly recommend, and look forward to returning for another holiday.”

“Excellent location. Ideal for long walks on quiet beaches with Bognor, Arundel and Chichester within easy reach. Dolphina was quirky but has all the amenities required. We enjoyed a lovely week there at the end of September 22. Highly recommended.”

“This was our 2nd time staying at Dolphinia and it was just as good as the first time. Though being small and basic it has everything you need for a short break to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet by the sea. Excellent for dog walking being very close to a dog friendly beach which when the tide is out is all sand and when comes in there is a good coastal path, Bognor one way and Littlehampton the other.”

For a pet friendly service spotless just goes above and beyond .amenities are within a small dog walking distance and beach is amazing 10 10 would be our overall rating for the Dolphina.”

“Great value, clean, wonderful welcome pack and everything you need for two. Be aware you need to be mobile for the steps to the bedroom and no washing machine but a lovely characterful place. Plenty local places to eat, quiet, close to beach. There is a lovely small decked area to sit out in.”

“We had a fabulous time at Dolphina. We were a bit concerned that it would be too small for us, but it was larger than expected. We arrived and everything was perfectly clean, the bed was super comfy, lovely linens and comfy cushions. The shower was fabulous too, and a hit with the hubby, he always commented on how good it was as he came out.The decking area was perfect to sit out in the morning with a coffee. The beach isnt even a minute away, dog friendly and clean perfect for kite flying!!! We found three dog friendly pubs for both food and drink within five minutes, and the local shop is just a few minutes walk along the road that runs through the village. Its well served by the bus, the 600 takes you from a few seconds away in to Bognor if you dont fancy driving, and the 700 is about a ten minute walk away if you want to venture further.I couldnt fault this place or give any recommendations for improvement ten out of ten!”
