    Dolphina is a bijou studio with everything I needed for my visit to the Sussex area. The owners were friendly and welcoming. I wasn't keen on the internet TV (so everything had to be watched on catch up and not everything was available) but I wasn't in much so it didn't affect my stay all that much. I liked the location - the beach is just a very short walk away and other guests indicated that it was very safe for swimming because of the sea defences (but it was a bit cold to try this out for myself!) Close to Bognor, Brighton, and Chichester.

Bed very comfortable and shower lovely!!We also loved the fresh flowers and bottle of wine in fridge!!! Will recommend to friends, especially with dogs as very dog friendly including pubs!!

    Enjoyed a lovely 4 night stay. Accommodation was well equipped. The only thing worth mentioning as a negative is the seating area downstairs which is not very comfortable. Overall thought I would definitely stay again.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your review. We are looking into making the seating area more comfortable, but thank you for your constructive comments, which we value. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again.

    We really enjoyed this week, very comfortable, welcomed warmly by Cathy and Des. The welcome pack was particularly helpful, they thought of everything, even wine! The mezzanine bedroom, was particularly romantic and quirky. we found the close proximity of the beach wonderful, and is a playground for dogs. I like the idea of being so close to the beach, and local shops and restaurants and dog friendly pubs. You actually need never use your car, and certainly if you enjoy walking there is excellent information for local walks around the area. Love Chichester and love the Witterings! We certainly will be back visiting Cathy and Des.
