This is an old coaching inn on the edge of Dartmoor, in the pleasant village of Bovey Tracey. There is quite a busy road to the front, but didn't affect my stay, or sleep. It's a traditional pub with clean rooms over. If you're looking for a modern themed pub, this is not for you. The décor and carpets could... More

I have eaten at the Dolphin several times and always had a great meal and have never found fault with the service or the quality of food. I recently took my brother and SIL (who is fussy) hoping that they would enjoy it, fortunately they did and still rave about the meal now. The menu is what I would describe... More

Yet another fab lunch today. Great food, friendly service, but that's what we expect and always get at the dolphin! We are so impressed with their quality that we even asked them to sponsor our youth football team, as we are proud to associate ourselves with them. Take our advice and have a lovely meal and a quality pint of... More

We went for a meal with my family and found the atmosphere really cosy. Your never sure what the food will be like .....it was the freshest food I have tasted for a long time. The salad looked like they had just fetched it from the garden. Our steaks were cooked exactly as we had ordered. The staff were all... More

The Dolphin Hotel is a typical coaching inn set in the pretty village of Bovey Tracey. We had a room at the front, no. 8, which was clean and comfortable. However, as the weather was hot during our stay and the room got a lot of sun, we did find it hard to sleep at night with the heat. There... More

'Average' is probably too harsh. The Dolphin is a good basic hotel. We had a comfortable room and a good breakfast. The room had tv, tea and coffee and a few biscuits. It was clean and, other than the tractor rally that seemed to be taking place on the road outside at the time we stayed it was quiet. The... More
