Weekend stay to visit family.
Friendly and helpful staff. Very clean and had everything needed in room. Room next to road but no traffic so mainly quiet. Had to keep curtains shut due to people walking past. Brief noise in evening from people having been out and coming back and /or getting cars. Most rooms are away from the road though.

2/10 Poor

Aggressive staff
Absolutely disgusting service, the staff swore at us and we left the hotel at 10:30pm. There is no restaurant facility and there is construction work whis is not advertised anywhere. The staff are rude and aggressive. Lisa should not be allowed to work in customer service. Ruined my anniversary and i wouldn't recommend anyone atay here.

Beautiful Location
This is the 3rd time we've stayed at the Dolphin, twice at Wedding Receptions which were amazing and this time for an overnight meetup with friends. It is in the process of having extensive alterations but this hasn't in any way affected the smooth running, or cleanliness of this Hotel. Lovely location. Friendly staff. Would recommend it to anyone.

4/10 Fair

1 member of staff (Lisa) was rude and unprofessional and ruined the stay. The other staff were good. Very little food options for evening meal was disappointing so we had to go into town to eat. Breakfast was good though.
