Ours is a purpose-built nursing home with ample car parking for visitors. We have two floors which can be accessed by stairs or passenger lift, two lounges, and a dining room. There are dedicated baths and toilets for residents with disabilities, and access to a garden area which offers lovely views across the harbour.
All rooms are singles with hand basins. Bathrooms, showers and toilets are close to each bedroom and communal area.
My husband has used the respite care at Dolphin View on 3 times now while I have taken a short break, he suffers from Parkinson's disease, I have found the staff to be exceptionally friendly and helpful, his medication is always given on time, and when I collect him he always reports how jovial the staff are and how well he has been looked after.
Everyone working in Dolphin View seem to to really care about the patients, this is a great comfort when you are leaving a loved one even for a short break.
I have been in the home three years now and I feel better than ever. I am very well looked after by all the staff. I like all the staff they are very good. The meals are very good, I have put on a lot of weight since I moved in due to the healthy eating and all my friends and family say I look better. I find the activities very good and I get taken out for walks which I enjoy. The home is in a lovely location overlooking the sea. I am not far from my family and friends. I find the new manager very good, she has made some good changes and think she is going to do the home the world of good.
It's excellent, we are well fed and well looked after. Everyone's very helpful.
I highly recommend Dolphin View. Staff, food, rooms are lovely. A very friendly atmosphere.
Absolutely over the moon with my standard of care. The staff, management need a medal. Very friendly and caring.
A very good home. Staff very friendly and caring. Kiss at breakfast and dinner ha ha. I would highly recommend.
I find all the carers very helpful, they have a difficult job and they do it very well. We go out on the bus and have lots of activities. I highly recommend the home to other potential residents.
A very friendly caring environment. Food and rooms are inviting. Would recommend this establishment, lots of entertainment. I am very happy here.
The home is very good , it's very clean and the food is good. The bedrooms are lovely. The staff are very pleasant. If you want anything you get it. The staff will go out of their way for you, you can't get better than that.
I have been here just over 8 years. I like the company. We are lucky to be here. The food is pretty good. The care staff are good. We are lucky I have had home help in the past and they were no good you can't do much in the time they are there. We have everything here.

On Monday 27th March 2017 Four Seasons scooped the ‘Flu Fighter Social Care Award’ at the prestigious Flu Fighter awards.
The Flu Fighter award celebrate the great achievements of flu teams and organisations who promote the importance of flu vaccinations to everyone in their organisation.
Four Seasons was shortlisted for the ‘Social Care Award’ after being nominated following the success of the internal Flu and You campaign. Before being presented with the award, Daniel Mortimer, Chief Executive for NHS Employers said: “Four Seasons Heath Care launched its campaign with the goal of reducing the occurrence of flu in its colleagues. They created leaflets and flu packs that provided details about the importance of the flu vaccination and how to get vaccinated. This worked really well and they had an extra 1,600 colleagues vaccinated, which increased uptake by 22% this season. Well done.”
