1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

Eventually found it, had been told it had car parking ha yeah outside on road if spaces available. The staff had messed up payment for room (told our office staff that they could pay for room at end off week but not told the man who booked us in when we arrived) so we had to give cash to him so we could stay. Took baggage up to room, my god what a tatty looking room it was too. The cushion flooring in ensuite was all puckered up and looked like a DIY disaster. Walked around found somewhere to eat have few drinks and returned to try to get early night ready for work tomorrow. What a joke the music was loud and we were directly over the bar and front door. Obviously no sound proofing done as we could actually hear the door closer operating on the door into the bar. Eventually fell asleep from sheer exhaustion and don't know what time. Had a bad nights sleep too beds awful, quilts not long enough to cover body and feet at same time, bed uncumfortable woke with stiff neck, bad back, cold feet and a really bad headache. Would not recommend to anyone unless they have to do sleep deprevation training. Could send SAS there to do theirs, no I'm not joking!

Room Tip: Sorry just wouldn't bother unless you get one of the rooms on top floor and hope its one of the...

Just returned from a midweek break at The Dolphin Hotel, its basic, clean, staff are very friendly, the beds are comfortable and the tea and coffee is toped up every day. I would recomend this hotel to anyone who is an experianced traveller.

On both Friday and Saturday nights the music in the bar was quiet enough to have a conversation over it, so no problems with music. Rooms are basic, but have ensuite, and if you are looking for a cheap place to stay, where you don't spend too much time in the room, you can't really go wrong.

Parking is a pain though - although they can provide you with a parking permit, finding a spot on the street is very difficult.

Room Tip: Second floor is attic room, with twin beds and very small bathroom.

I would really only recommend this hotel for those that like house music, and plan to spend little time sleeping. On entering our room, we could hear the house music being played from the bar below very clearly, and this was in the middle of the afternoon. We went out for the evening, and returned just before midnight and sure enough the music from the bar made it quite difficult to get to sleep.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor, not the first of you wish to get to sleep.
