We stayed two nights at this hotel. We were made very welcome by reception and shown to our room. The room was very clean and the bed, not only was it very comfortable, it was the biggest hotel bed I have found in the UK. Breakfast had a good range and we opted for an excellent full English. The hotel...

I booked this hotel on line after reading many positive reviews I stayed for one night, had a reserved car parking space, which was very helpful. The staff were very friendly, room was spotlessly clean and spacious. The breakfast was first class, many different options I would definitely recommend this hotel.

In all a good unpretentious...

I recently stayed here for the second time. The location couldn't be better - close to the lovely sea front; to the centre of the town; to the train station, & yet in a nice quiet road. The staff are just lovely - really helpful & yet relaxed about it. I understand it's been recently refurbished, & they've done a...

Our two day stay in Exmouth was made more enjoyable by the staff in The Dolphin Hotel who went out of their way to ensure all of our needs and requirements were met.

The hotel is ideally located to walk into the town centre. The breakfast was adequate and served in a clean, well-lit dining room. The room on the ground floor was well decorated with a very small shower room. Both adequate for a short stay but lacked storage space and an easy way to overcome this would be to install a...
