What is on offer is good value, no frills,accommodation.Our room, 7 had a massive bed, which took up most of the room space. The shower is basic. Breakfast did offer some fresh fruit and service of the cooked breakfast was rapid.

A clean, tidy but basic bed and breakfast. Staff was really friendly always prepared to chat. They welcomed Me my partner and our dog. Excellent breakfast. They had limited parking but a space was reserved, although a bit tight getting into the space with a larger car. Parking on roadside is hit and miss.

We spent just one night to meet up with my extended family. The rooms were light, spacious and comfortable.

With packaged pain au chocolate, a frozen mixed summer fruit offering, average sausages and dry scrambled eggs....

This B&B was clean, comfortable and the staff were friendly. The room was lovely but bathroom needed a mirror over the sink. The breakfast was good and we had a good stay here. I would go again but there is a real issue with parking around. I expect worsened in summer months?! Thanks for a comfortable visit

We have spent several days here on several occasions. It's probably the best B and B I've stayed in. It's well run, clean and comfortable, the staff are friendly and helpful. We enjoy the social aspect of visiting the lounge bar in the evenings!

Very enjoyable two night stay at the Dolphin Hotel. We were allocated room 20, which was spacious, with an enormous comfortable bed. Excellent breakfast on both days, and all the staff that we met were so friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Location is everything and cannot be faulted. Parking is limited, and while the parking permits work well you do end up separated from your car, albeit only a short walk away. The room was lovely. Very bright and airy which was a pleasant surprise after negotiating narrow corridors. Breakfast was a real hit with the kids. The staff at breakfast...

As a dog owner, i have problems finding hotels that cater for my two. The Dolphin happily opened their doors to my pooches. On arrival, we were greeted by a charming lady, who directed us to our room on the ground floor. It was a decent sized room with a separate loo and shower. (a small handbasin in the loo...
