    Dolphin cottage was tricky to review. This is an unassuming fishermans cottage in cellardyke. The reason we couldnt recommend was twofold, first we didnt sleep very well..partly because of noise from the central heating and partly because it was a regular double and we are used to a king size double. The cottage was well equipped with two exceptions, no wifi and a very small television. I accept that both of these are very subjective, but we stay in a lot of cottages and have done over 20 years..and in winter, we like both wifi and large telly to be available. Otherwise for dog owners..which we are, it was great. Non dog owners may catch a whiff of dog. We couldnt get the gas fire to work and phoned one of the available numbers but got no response. We werent cold as the central heating was very effective if noisy in the bedroom. A quick improvement would be new bed and bedding and new towels. Currently it's like a cottage that the owner might use themselves with all that implies...but standards for extrrnal renting are higher and it coukd do with a makeover. The flipside is location and local amenities whivh are great.

    Kitchen filthy, cutlery filthy, kitchen utensils filthy. Shower leaks into kitchen, living room carpet filthy. Had to clean everything when we got there. Garden was supposed to be secure for the dogs, one dog escaped within two minutes through a large hole in the fence. Very poor, will not be going back.

    Great location but in need of modernization we had to scrub the kitchen after finding little beasties under the chopping board. The lamp in the living room wires looked to have been chewed

    The cottage is on the beach close to pub and harbour. Local takeaways are all top class. East neck is beautiful.

    It is the location that sold this cottage to us. The sea view is amazing. Very quiet and peaceful.

    The property is in need of some TLC. Issues that we noticed had been reported in the guest book but had not been addressed. It's a shame as it is a quirky property but needs to have some money spent on it.

    Had a fantastic holiday at Dolphin Cottage - the location is perfect, the views are absolutely astonishing and the cottage itself is a lovely place to stay. Would definitely recommend to others.

    It's cute and quirky. The beach is right outside (a little rocky in places) everything was clean, everything you could need was available, comfy double bed, never used the singles so cant comment. Heating worked well with a cute gas fire if it gets really cold. No dishwasher and no internet, but we coped admirably for the week. ? For food, is a co-op just outside of anstruther centre. For takeaways, the chip shop on the Harborfront is really good, and on cunzie street is the best Indian food I have eaten in years. Short drives from st Andrews with a gorgeous beach, leven with a long beach and Elie with a lovely beach and on Elie high street a wonderful deli, most delicious sandwiches made to order and divine quiches. Would (and likely will) go back in a heartbeat.

    Cottage was not clean, mattress protector was stained and disgusting. Hoover was useless and everything was very tired n worn out. The photos are out of date. When we contacted owner he blamed cleaner n she blamed owner. Carpets covered with animal hair n stank of wet dog when cleaner washed them.

    Lovely fishermans cottage in cellardyke. We had a wonderful relaxing holiday, view from all windows are stunning. The heating was on when we arrived and it was very cosy. Hope to return in the future.
