There is some sort of generator humming away very loudly all night! It was very expensive too. The plush hotel opposite was cheaper. If your traveling to Bournemouth shop... More

Stayed for 4 nights with two other friends. We had a great time at this hotel and definitely coming back to this place whenever I'd come back to the south! Owners are really kind and will help you out when asked for. Rooms look good. The only small thing I found was that there is a lack of pressure on... More

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
