Had a very comfortable night at Dolphins Hotel with 4 children in two triple rooms. Owners were very welcoming and tolerant of the inevitable noise and mischief, providing a BBQ in the garden for us to feed them. The location is very central but off the main roads, and a short walk from the beach. Rooms were clean and very... More

Overnight stay in Bournemouth booked on basis of previous reviews. Host friendly and welcoming on arrival. Unfortunately room did not meet same expections. First thing we noticed was a broken dirty plastic bucket that was being used as a bin. Then we saw the fridge, which we thought was a nice touch - if it has been clean enough to... More

This is a lovely little hotel. I stayed with my family and the owners were very hospitable and amenable to our requirements. Personally I always prefer the hotel linen to be white, as white keeps no dirty secrets!! Our room was spotlessly clean with perfectly white linen on very comfy beds. Next time we need a place to stay in... More

The male host, wasn't offered a name was sarcastic and abrupt, the female host was borderline aggressive. Neither were welcoming or hospitable. Wifi was the absolute minimum you could get, the breakfast was the nastiest meal I have ever had the misfortune of ingesting. Room was ok, bed was ok, shower performance was like the hosts.. lacklustre. TV was big,... More
