'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

Went last night after a recommendation. Quite busy for early evening. Very attentive staff. The food delicious, garlic mushrooms with Stilton as a starter very nice and plenty of it. Lasagne very tasty, the side salad very different with grapes and melon, one of the nicest I have had out for ages. Would defiantly recommend it to friends. . Next... More

We have stayed at The Dolphin several times a year for the last four years and have been delighted with the experience. The management and staff are always friendly, attentive and helpful and go out of their way to respond to any requests. The staff have all been around for some time so the atmosphere is pleasant and we sometimes... More

Stayed at the dolphin for 3 nights, enjoyed every moment, rooms comfortable and clean, staff friendly and food delicious and good value. We have family living in Bovey Tracey and visit a couple of times a year. Have stayed here several times over the last ten years and will stay here again on our next visit.

Stayed for 1 night on business in early March 2013. Very pleasant, room super comfortable, great food on offer and the staff were very welcoming. Even made me breakfast a little earlier than usual. This is obviously popular with local residents, so has a great feel to the bar in the evening. Will stay again when around Exeter on business.

Lovely little hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful, plenty to eat at breakfast. Arrived on a cold wet night the room (4) was warm, the bed was comfortable and room was very clean. Shower was great except it kept going cold every now and then. Unfortunately I miss dinner but was told by a family member that the dessert... More

Nothing to rave about really, but no major complaints either. Family room pretty drab, and overlooked buildings at the back of the hotel. Food in the evening, was average, again nothing to rave about. Didn't like the heavy smell of deep fat frying that pervaded the restaurant (perhaps problems with kitchen ventilation?) Cooked breakfast was very good.
