Room was very cold on arrival, quite taken aback by how small room was and especially by the size of the tv on the wall, not much bigger than a modern tablet! Very dated decor overall. Every thing was clean. Shower no power at all. Very noisey throughout the night, room below had an alarm going off from 7.30am for... More

Weekend stay in lovely Beer, charming old Hotel with great service, good affordable food and great location in the middle of town 200m from the sea, what a great slice of English history. Good location for walking, seaside or just relaxation - nice

I stayed at the Dolphin 26-28 September 2014 as part of a large family group there for my step-father's 70th birthday - we hired the function room for the Saturday night. Given then number of rooms booked, I would like to think a hotel would ensure our experience would be superb. Alas, not. I am a not a 'Victor Meldrew'... More

Stayed at the Dolphin for two nights with friends, the staff was friendly and though the hotel has a somewhat dated feel, we were happy with our three bedrooms. The beds were comfy and the pillows were of good quality and everything very clean. However two out of the three bathrooms had no shower. The towels were all of a... More

the location of this hotel is ideal and hence why we chose to stay here and indeed have stayed in beer before but in various types of accommodation including self catering and bed and breakfast places in the past. We were travelling around dorset and devon and stopped in beer as part of that trip what was disappointing was that... More

The food is amazing, great value for money, good sized portions, well presented and fresh. We were a family of four and all ordered different meals and we all thought the food was exceptional. I would eat here every day if I could.
