Excellent service. Would recommend to anybody travelling down here to stay at the Dolphins. Elena and Miles were the perfect hosts. There was nothing they would not do to help us, within their power. Bedrooms very clean and location really close to shopping centre, caffes,restaurants and the beach - all within walking distance. Many thanks for a lovely stay, John...

Booked at really short notice (so I had virtually no choice) for the room that sleeps 4, on a Wednesday and so the £80 was to be expected. I stay in hotel rooms quite often, and in the UK it's always premier inn. Perhaps I have been spoilt, though I've never paid more than £45 to stay in a premier...

Had a very comfortable night at Dolphins Hotel with 4 children in two triple rooms. Owners were very welcoming and tolerant of the inevitable noise and mischief, providing a BBQ in the garden for us to feed them. The location is very central but off the main roads, and a short walk from the beach. Rooms were clean and very...

Overnight stay in Bournemouth booked on basis of previous reviews. Host friendly and welcoming on arrival. Unfortunately room did not meet same expections. First thing we noticed was a broken dirty plastic bucket that was being used as a bin. Then we saw the fridge, which we thought was a nice touch - if it has been clean enough to...

This is a lovely little hotel. I stayed with my family and the owners were very hospitable and amenable to our requirements. Personally I always prefer the hotel linen to be white, as white keeps no dirty secrets!! Our room was spotlessly clean with perfectly white linen on very comfy beds. Next time we need a place to stay in...

We stayed for 2 weekend nights, 7 ladies having a break from the norm, this hotel met our needs completely, it is close to all shops, bars, shows etc, it is very reasonably priced, the rooms have all you require, along with the most amazing shower rooms, then the cooked breakfast the following morning was exactly what was required after...
