Fantastic stay for me and my friends. Owners are amazing. Defo go back and stay here if I ever go back the Bournemouth. Didn't choose to have the breakfast because we knew we wouldn't be up it time. Didn't care what time we strolled in at.

We really enjoyed our stay in Dolphins Hotel. The spacious room we were in, was very clean, quiet, with lots of sunshine, with very good facilities, and the service was excellent. The Hotel is in an excellent location; a very short walking distance to the city centre, all the shops and to the bus station.‎ We definitely recommend this hotel... More

Just arrived back from the Dolphins Hotel Bournemouth. What lovely people ,made us so welcome . The room was very pleasant, clean and the modern bathroom was a real treat. Breakfast was as much as you could eat, with real sausages and beautifully cooked. Elena and Miles were fantastic hosts. Will be staying there again if in Bournemouth.

I arrived at Dolphins Hotel on 10th September and was pleased to see the sign outside that the proprietorship speak Russian. Although I am English I asked the man at reception "Govorite-li vi po ruski" (Russian for "do you speak Russian"). The reply in English was that his wife is the Russian speaker. Then I announced that I had arrived... More

Very friendly owners and a very clean, low cost hotel. Myself and some friends stayed for two nights and used it as a base because it is well placed in the town. There is little parking outside the hotel but that is the same story for the whole of Bournemouth we found. I would stay again.

We arrived here very late and Miles was very helpful in directing us.Rooms were clean,free WiFi.Miles is very knowledgeable about the UK although negative about places we were going to but that was based solely on his personal opinions.
