Never disappoints! Good food in the restaurant and bar, friendly staff, clean rooms and right in the centre of Beer! Handy for sightseeing around Seaton and Sidmouth, and a lovely walk around the cliffs to Branscombe! What more could you need!!

Visited The Dolphin on Valentine weekend this year with a Groupon deal . Although the room was advertised as en-suite the sink was situated in the bedroom itself . We had no great problem with this but can understand that some people might have . The room was spotlessly clean and was extremely hot , so much so that we... More

Having read a few off-ish reviews my expectations were low so I was delighted to find that the Dolphin was a) quiet, even on music night b) warm with plenty of hot water and c) had seriously good food. We ate in the restaurant (bit of a mistake, it was the butt end of January and we were the only... More

We visited out of season, the area is very quiet. A car is a must!!! The hotel staff are very friendly. The room was spotless and warm. We had more than enough hot water so can only assume that any of the negative posts were isolated incidents. We were looking for a quiet break to recharge our batteries and got... More

The Hotel offers a full Restaurant or lounge/ bar eating. They also have a function room. I highly recommend the fish dishes, slow cooked... More

Great little Hotel, Very good location and value for money. Staff were very nice. Request a room with bed and got it however when checking in we were offered a free upgrade which i thought was very nice of them but did stick to the room with a bath, 5 star service . Many thanks.

Visited Beer on the one day in January when it didn't rain. Took my friends from Hampshire into the bar for a quick lunch. My expectations weren't all that high as it looked a bit 'seventies-ish'. The bar menu was clear and concise and looked good value for main meals at £5.95. We ordered fish, ham & chips and I... More
