Booked a family night away with my Mom as it was somewhere she'd never been and wanted to go. The hotel is run by a lovely couple who were very helpful. It is bright, clean and we enjoyed a nice hot fresh cooked breakfast. Parking is restricted to a few cars on the front however once there we didn't need...

The Dolphins hotel has many things going for it. The owners were a delight and went out of their way to ensure we were welcome. For the price the hotel is well located and offers easy access to shops and the seafront. The breakfast was excellent. Parking is tight and late comers may struggle to find a place.

We visited here over the bank holiday with our dog. The owners were very friendly and accommodating .We had a ground floor room with a modern shower and tea and coffee making facilities. Owners made sure we always managed to get a free parking place and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. We enjoyed the cooked breakfast and local...

The Hotel is very old and untended. The room we had (3 bed room) was on the ground floor and therefore it was very loud. We stayed there for 3 nights and the beds have never been made and no cleaning either. The breakfast room is in the cellar and not very comfortable. The breakfast was good and Miles and...

This is our third visit here, and would not stay anywhere else in Bournmouth. The location is wonderful as the walk to the BIC is very easy as well as the beach and town are only a short distance. The owners are very kind and welcoming. The rooms are clean and great. Our shower was a double enclosure and the...

I stayed at this Hotel in July 2015 with my daughter her husband and my grandchildren, we had 2 rooms .a double and a family room. The rooms are very basic. There is some sort of generator humming away very loudly all night! It was very expensive too. The plush hotel opposite was cheaper. If your traveling to Bournemouth shop...
