Went here for a short break. Lovely location in a beautiful village. Our first room the bathroom was so tiny you seriously could sit on the lol and touch the shower.

Yes, I have reviewed this place before. Unfortunately we only visit South Devon annually for holidays with friends and family. However, we always manage to get a least one visit in to the Dolphin. it is a little bit of a maze internally with a number of places to eat, but the quality seems equally spread. This time we popped...

We celebrated our first wedding anniversary here. We found the hotel on the dog friendly accommodation site and stayed for four days. Beautiful little village with the Dolphin hotel set very close to the beach. No problems parking at the back of their hotel. The staff were very friendly and always had a smile especially for our little dog Molly....

We found this place by searching the web. We contacted the hotel directly and received a prompt response, always a good sign. On arrival we were allocated room 3 which is on the side over the long bar. There was some noise from the bar and a little from the road but not enough to disturb us. The room appeared...

We held a wake there today and it was everything we could have hoped for. The staff (Sandra and Matthew in particular) were extremely helpful and friendly, teas and coffees were constantly being circulated and the food was wonderful, especially the scones, which were a favourite for many!

Room was comfortable and clean, tea/coffee making available in room. Staff were very friendly making you feel welcome. Our evening meals were plentiful and well cooked and reasonable priced. The price of the rooms were good and included a hearty breakfast and free parking. My only complaint was the bathroom door didn't fit well, just a slight adjustment needed.
