I can only review the food at the Dolphin Hotel as we didn't stay here, only ate in the restaurant. Whilst there were some good points - nice new decor and child-friendly staff, overall the food was like an odd throw-back to an earlier decade with very inflated price-tags. It was essentially alright pub grub, which we would have been... More

Had a weekend without the children and just turned up in the early evening, no problem booking in at short notice. Our room had been recently refurbished and was lovely and clean as was the bathroom, which had a power shower! We ate in the restaurant and found it had also been refurbished since our last stay, the lounge bar... More

Last Sunday, two of our friends ran in the Exeter Half Marathon in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. Last Sunday also happened to be our wedding anniversary, so we had a celebration meal for six in the Function Room at the Dolphin Hotel. The service was first class and the food was delicious.

Spent three nights there with the family and had a good stay. Good value and a truly outstanding breakfast - bacon to die for - and attentive service by all of the staff. Howard in reception was friendly and helpful on arrival and the restaurant staff were all very helpful too. Nothing seems too much trouble. Decor? if you're OK... More

Beer is an historic English fishing village with a stream running down its main street, lobster pots on its pebbly little beach and a reputation for locally-caught fish and crab. The Dolphin Hotel is a very English establishment with swirly patterned carpets throughout and, it would seem, a reputation for serving excellent food to summer visitors and local business people...

Went to the Dolphin for Sunday lunch and really enjoyed it. The menu contained several local fish dishes as well as Cauvery standards. It was first rate and I would certainly go again and recommend it to others.

We went with some friends for three days and were delighted by the excellent service and even more excellent food, which was really brilliant. We are used to eating well, but this was as good as anywhere we have ever been. It's a small friendly family-run hotel which doubles as a local pub and restaurant: expect very generous portions of...

We've just spent 3 days at this family run hotel. The staff were very welcoming and the food was great. Huge tasty portions! The hotel is conveniently situated a short walk from the beach. We plan to visit again in the near future
