Good 6.0
Not impressed
I was expecting something different. The window's and curtains was dirty. We didn't had a hot food option because of covid.. We couldn't have a kettle in a room because of covid, but we could take the drinks from the reception to the bedroom because of covid(that makes no sense) the rooms had not enough natural light. the room was dark in color and bare (nothing on the wall just a mirror) staff very polite and professional. Breakfast very minium no English breakfast just continental option... Or bacon bap.... Apart of that it was ok

Dolphin Hotel Swansea
Staff were friendly and helpful. Longer bed would have been better and an extractor fan in bathroom would have helped. Hotel perfectly positioned for bars, restaurants and shopping and I would certainly stay there next time I visit Swansea.

Good location, it is at the center of the city and close to the city bus station. However, there is no air ventilation facilities in the room.
