Reviewed 1 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Hayle beach a stones throw away, just perfect for the dog. Lovely bungalow, felt right at home and really appreciated the welcome gifts....now thats what you call hospitality. Will definitely be back again later in the year.

“Mermaid on the beach.”
Reviewed 6 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Mermaid bungalow was brilliant, sleeps 4...

All you needed was available. Wifi for the teens, beach for the dog and close to local sight seeing areas.We went to re -explore St.Ives so a perfect base.
If you want to surf, the surf school is around the corner, two local pubs and three miles of sandy beach to enjoy.
The accomodation was sizable with en-suite to both bedrooms which was a bonus. Clean and tidy with friendly owners nearby if needed or left us to it .
Hayle is up and coming and being refurbed daily, with it's harbour and estuary it's quite under rated.
A great week even with changeable weather .

“Amazing ☺”
Reviewed 28 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Stayed at the Dolphin Oct half term and had an amazing time. The chalet is very spacious with everything you need and more. The location is ideal for beach lovers and walkers. I have been visiting hayle for 20 yrs and the Dolphin is one of the best places i have stayed.Barbara was such a lovely lady and nothing was to much trouble, my dog loved her to as she brought him treats when he hurt his nose. Thankyou for an amazing week and we will definately be returning next year.☺

“Nice property well positioned, but not too clean”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The layout, design & equipment in the property was good, as was its proximity to the beach. However there were some steps down to the beach, not good for the significantly disabled.

Unfortunately the property was not very clean. We had to clean out the cutlery draw of bread crumbs and general grot, and wash the cutlery before use. The underside of cushions on the sofa harboured more debris. The bedrooms and bathrooms had not been hoovered too carefully, one shower drain was partially blocked, and there were numerous cobwebs here and there; it could have been much cleaner! One bathroom light did not work, and the other had a shaver socket that did not work.

Nice property, but needs better management!

Thank you for your review -
With regards to the cleaning of the property and the bathroom light bulb not working; we did ask you on a number of occasions if everything was okay and you said fine - if you would have said something then we would have rectified things immediately. With regards to the access to the beach and the steps - if you would have continued a further 30 yards you would have seen the new disabled access to the beach.

“How lucky were we!”

Decided to go for an early spring break. How lucky we were that the weather was so good. After looking at several places we decided to go for The Dolphin as we could take our dog with us. She loves the sand for some reason.
Dolphin is very pet and family friendly and there are so many amenities to hand. The place itself is immaculate. Couldn't find a single fault and will most certainly be returning. Thanks guys!
