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.

We stayed in the Dolphins Hotel because of its location close to the Triangle. The room was good, the welcome great despite the poor weather but the sink was tiny and I mean tiny. You could barely wash your hands in it. Parking is potentially a problem but we found free parking a couple of streets away. My partner and... More

I only stayed one night for a concert at the BIC. The location is perfect for the BIC, town and the seafront. I received a warm welcome on arrival and found my single room to be warm, clean and comfortable. The generous full English breakfast was very good and included good quality ingredients. I will be happy to stay at... More
