“Great hotel and even better location”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

We recently stayed at this hotel and we loved everything about it. The rooms were large and very comfortable. The apartment we stayed in had everything we could have needed.
Best thing about Dolphin House is the proximity to all of the tourist locations - they are within walking distance which is brilliant.
We ate at the restaurant most days for breakfast and a couple of nights as well. The food and service was good and the staff were very friendly.
If I had any issue (and this is really minor) paying for wi-fi is not what I would expect of a hotel of this standard but it was not expensive.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would certainly go back.

Staying for London marathon. Booked specifically as apartment so we could make our own breakfast. Toaster promised on website which was needed for early breakfast. No toaster available or forthcoming. Reason - we are on the 6th floor. now cold nasty crumpets. sounds petty but this was the main reason we booked this hotel. Otherwise great location and would recommend but don't believe what you read on facilities.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us and for recommending Dolphin House. Whilst I am happy to know that you have enjoyed our location, I am disappointed to hear that we did not meet your expectations on this occasion. The London Marathon is usually a very busy period for us and I believe the majority of guests that participate in the Marathon chose to stay with us precisely due to the fact that they can self cater their breakfast very early in the morning, for this same reason all our studio apartments with cooking facilities have been taken very quickly, leaving us with no other option but to allocate studios on the 6th floor. As you correctly mentioned we do not provide toasters on this floor due to Health & Safety reasons. We always try our best to accommodate our guest requests, unfortunately in periods that we are running 100% occupancy it becomes very difficult to fulfil this requests.. Please accept my sincere apologies for the inconvenience that we have caused you and I truly hope that you will give us the opportunity to restore your faith in the near future by staying with us again; in the meantime please do contact us if we can help you further. Kind Regards, Rita Ferreira

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at The Dolphin and I have to say I would not stay anywhere else now when visiting London. The 1 bed apartment that we had was fantastic, spacious and had everything that we needed and more. The staff that we met were very friendly and extremely helpful. The location is perfect, only a short walk around the corner to Pimlico underground which will take you to all the main tourist attractions. The Bar-grill (on site restaurant) was very good also caters for children, breakfasts were very good with a good selection as were the evening meals.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants a relaxing and hassle free stay in London.

Just returned from 1 night at Dolhin House, walked from Victoria station took 15 mins, nice area to walk, friendly and helpful check in, nice apartment, clean, nice bedding, quiet. 1 and only negative comment bathroom was so hot, towel rail was untouchable and there was no way of turning it down.
Position for getting around London excellent, 5 min walk to Pimlico Underground, 1 stop to Victoria ( although as said previous only 15 min walk to Victoria but might not want to walk at night).
Breakfast very good, I'm very fussy about porridge! Couldn't fault it, it was spot on!
Great stay will definately be returning.

Upon check in, we were told that we'd been upgraded from an economy suite to a one bedroom apartment and from that moment, we were gutted we were only staying the one night!
Our apartment was enormous, clean and very comfortable. Location was perfect for us- a 20ish minute walk from Victoria station, plenty of bars and restaurants between the station and the hotel. We went to see a show and it was ideally situated from the Apollo Victoria.
Honestly couldn't fault it and would definitely stay here again.

We were staying one night only in transit but will make this our port of choice in London from now on. The rooms are spacious, spotless and well-equipped. The front desk were efficient and friendly and upgraded us to a three bedroom apartment as there was one available.

We did not get any opportunity to try the gym, restaurant etc.

All in all a very pleasurable and all too short stay.
