As a dog owner, i have problems finding hotels that cater for my two. The Dolphin happily opened their doors to my pooches. On arrival, we were greeted by a charming lady, who directed us to our room on the ground floor. It was a decent sized room with a separate loo and shower. (a small handbasin in the loo...

As a family we stayed in rooms 14 & 18 which were right at the top. Which is a rather steep climb if you're not as fit as you once were! But the rooms were nicely furnished and clean. The beds comfortable, with wi-fi, a tea/coffee tray and TV with basic channels. They had small en suites with clean fluffy...

Good sized room (11) with king sized bed, excellent WiFi and shower ensuite. Room overlooked street but as the hotel is on a quiet road, this wasn't a problem. Hotel close to town. Breakfast also good.

We stayed two nights at the Dolphin, taking two rooms. The staff were exceptionally friendly on arrival, going out of their way to help with the parking (make sure you book one of the few spaces available at the hotel when booking - though the nearby boat/car park, for which the hotel give you permit, is also fine). It's a...

We booked this last minute and arrived after dark. Staff were friendly and the room was clean but basic. The bathroom was small. The wifi was adequate. Off street parking was provided. This hotel is a 5 min walk from the town centre where there is a reasonable variety of food. Breakfast was again ok. Don't expect any flourishing touches...

Lovely hotel very clean and cosy. Bedroom decor very nice and modern shame no wardrobe to put clothes in only a few hangers on the wall. Staff friendly and welcoming and good breakfast choice. Reasonably priced and very comfortable bed. Many thanks. Shall return in the future when visiting family and friends again.

My son, his crew and I came in for the weekend so they could sail in an event at Exe Sailing Club. The hotel is a short walk to the Sailing Club, to parking where we could leave our boat and into town. The breakfast was really good and plentiful - and really fast. We would definitely stay there again...

The whole place seemed clean, and the staff were welcoming in a polite way. With a little attention to a few things this could be great. My room (20) was spacious, and the bathroom was enormous, although the electric shower was severely under powered. The room lacked anywhere to use a laptop, but the bathroom had a dressing table. Weird...
