“Great views...but”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Our room was expensive but the view over the river and boats was amazing.
Breakfast service needs a tweek ,we waited an hour for our English breakfast,there were only 3 tables occupied.
when it at last came out ,the order was wrong ,so the waitress took it back to the kitchen twice to rearrange the plate ,and then when we finally got our breakfast ,it was cold!!.
perhaps they need to get some younger,more energetic cooks and waiting staff??
Perhaps help with getting our cases up many stairs would have been helpful.
just little things really

Room Tip: Room no 1 has great views

Just got back from a fabulous weekend at the Dolphin. Excellent location, very central. Rooms clean and very friendly staff with impeccable manners. Would have no hesitation in returning to the hotel.

Recently spent two nights at the Dolphin and consider ourselves very fortunate to have chosen this lovely small hotel. It is comfortable,clean and very convenient for all of Whitby's attractions.Views overlook the bridge and harbour and everything is within comfortable walking distance. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the food is excellent. Rooms are spacious,well furnished and the bathroom is also spacious with bath and shower and plenty hot water. Our friends who accompanied us on this visit were equally impressed. We won't be saying any where else when we return to Whitby.

We have just stayed two nights at the dolphin hotel, we were in room two which over looks the bridge in whitby. The room was lovely, comfortable and spacious with a shower room en suite. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was also very good, freshly cooked to order. I have read some of the negative reviews and i admit i was apprehensive about booking at this hotel, but i neednt have been, we had a great stay.

Visited every day of our 3 day stay in Whitby, & ate there twice. Friendly & very welcoming staff, very dog friendly too! Our dog was given chews by the staff .. Tasty , quality home cooked food that hits the spot. All round nice atmosphere with excellent views of the swing bridge & harbour. Great to sit & watch the world go by. Will definitely be back & would recommend.

Stayed at the Dolphin Hotel in Whitby over the bank holiday, enjoyed every minute of it, the room was very clean and comfortable and the view over the harbour was brilliant, we had sunday lunch in the Dolphin Hotel it was very good, the breakfast was one of the best i have had and i've stayed in some good hotels over the years. The staff are brilliant and very helpful.

Room Tip: Room 6 with brilliant views, but there is no lift and it is up a few stairs.
