Stayed for 4 nights with two other friends. We had a great time at this hotel and definitely coming back to this place whenever I'd come back to the south! Owners are really kind and will help you out when asked for. Rooms look good. The only small thing I found was that there is a lack of pressure on...

Fantastic stay for me and my friends. Owners are amazing. Defo go back and stay here if I ever go back the Bournemouth. Didn't choose to have the breakfast because we knew we wouldn't be up it time. Didn't care what time we strolled in at.

Just arrived back from the Dolphins Hotel Bournemouth. What lovely people ,made us so welcome . The room was very pleasant, clean and the modern bathroom was a real treat. Breakfast was as much as you could eat, with real sausages and beautifully cooked. Elena and Miles were fantastic hosts. Will be staying there again if in Bournemouth.

I arrived at Dolphins Hotel on 10th September and was pleased to see the sign outside that the proprietorship speak Russian. 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. Then I announced that I had arrived...

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.
