Just a one night stay this time but I will be back again.
When I arrived they had no single roomsleft so upgraded me to a 2 bed apartment.
I felt a bit lost with 2 big beds, lounge, ful kitchen with washing machine and full bathroom
Whole place was just the right temperature - especially as outside was icy.
Breakfast was really good ,
Just a shame I didn't stay any longer as I would have used the pool and gym.
No faults... expect me back soon

Just returned from a weekend in the big Smoke staying in the dolphin square hotel. Lovely location - near the river, near the Tube, lots of buses - competitive rates, and lovely facilities - large, comfortable beds, smart rooms, nice communal areas, excellent gym/pool/sauna/steam room, good breakfast, small shops in the complex, good weekend carparking deal, helpful and friendly staff. Will certainly be coming back.

I've stayed at Dolphin House regularly over the last 9 months or so and definitely recommend it. Having read some of the other comments, just a few points to highlight:

1. Dolphin House is in a convenient quiet area. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The swimming pool/gym/'clinic', restaurant/bar, little shopping arcade and garden square are useful and unusual in a property of this sort. There are other local shops and restaurants nearby. The large supermarket is then about 10 mins walk and the Tube/Underground about 5 mins.

2. The rooms are comfortable and mostly spacious, with excellent beds and linen/towels, some kitchen facilities and a bathroom. Walls are thick and there's little internal noise. Toiletries in the bathroom are refreshed daily. Remember though that these are serviced rooms/apartments, not standard hotel rooms - there's no room service, you do all your own washing up and buy your own provisions (there are usually some teabags, coffee sachets and washing up liquid to get you started).

3. Rooms with full kitchens are hard to come by - you can request one but they can't be guaranteed even to regular guests. Some rooms have just a microwave and/or a hob. All have kitchen sinks, some utensils and fridges (not always with icebox). If your room doesn't have a washing machine, there are washers/dryers in the basement. There's no air conditioning and the heating can be erratic. But the windows do open and there's a fan provided.

Overall Dolphin House is not a standard hotel (if you're looking for one, there are others nearby) but it is a great, more unusual, place to stay!

Pros: Fantastic spacious rooms, good location only a few mins walk from Pimlico tube station, massive comfortable bed, clean room, good room facilities, internal shopping arcade very useful.

Cons: No room service, breakfast room VERY busy each morning, rooms very hot even in Oct/Nov.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to others, and will almost certainly use it again when I stay in London. You get much more for your money here compared to most other hotels in London. They definitely need more tables for breakfast though as we had to wait every day, but if this was sorted out it'd be near perfect.

This is a wonderful hotel and deserving of all the accolades. Our one bedroom apartment was very spacious, modern, clean and comfortable. The king size bed and bedding were of the highest quality. Our rooms were cleaned every day
The hotel staff were excellent, friendly, polite and always accommodating. Any request for help or service was handled promptly and efficiently.
The hotels location is great for those who prefer a quieter night time but who want to be close to the center of London. The Pimlico tube station is just 3 minutes walk away which can put you into the major tourist areas within 20 minutes. There are shops within the hotel complex which are adequate for any minor needs, and reasonably priced restaurants and pubs within easy walking distance. The health spa facility including the pool are excellent
For those who prefer more than just a hotel room along with excellent amenities and service I would highly recommend staying at the Dolphin House

We were looking for an apartment hotel, where we could get a seperate bedroom from the living area as we have a 1 year old, and find it difficult to get him to sleep when we are all in one hotel room. The Dolphin House was a great place to stay with a family, it has a kitchen so you can prepare meals, which is great with kids. It is in a quiet part of London, but only a 5 min bus ride into London central and also close to the tube as well.
Highly reccommended, will definatly stay here when we come to London again.

We stayed at Dolphin House for two different nights. Both nights we were upgraded to a higher standard room, without extra cost. That was a really nice gesture!

The rooms are big, clean with big bathrooms and comfy beds.

The staff are really serviceminded and helpful.

The location are close to Pimlico underground or a 15 minutes walk from Victoria. The area feels safe and silent.
