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.

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
