Staff very friendly, room and furniture tired looking... Shower had signs of mould in grouting. It was clean but could do with overhaul. For the money it was not brilliant but as only staying one night and in peak season.. It was not worth making too much fuss. But if we had been staying longer would have lodged comment. Breakfast very good and could not fault helpful staff.

Average accomodation in a great location
The best about the hotel is its location, only being about 5 mins walk to the beach front. The hotel is on a very quiet street with other B&Bs and the staff were friendly and very welcoming to our party. Parking has to be reserved and they did this for us when we confirmed. Laterooms don't tell you that you pay the first night on booking then the rest when you get there but that's what happens.
The hotel itself was ok, just rather tired and dated. Rooms were of an adequate size - we had a family room which consisted of one double bed and two singles, a couple of chest of drawers and a wardrobe. The ensuite bathroom really let the room down in our opinion, the shower didn't work properly and the hot water was scalding hot. Mid shower, the water temperature would switch from icy cold to piping hot and no amount of adjustment would fix it! The bathroom itself was clean and towels changed daily but the bathroom was very dated and had a slightly stale urine smell about it. Beds were fairly comfortable but all if us itched like mad every morning so not sure what was going on there!
The breakfast was good, with a good selection of cooked and continental items. We had the full English which was done to our satisfaction, just could have been a little more generous with portion size maybe. All in all a good enough base to rest our heads. Didn't really feel it was value for money given the price paid but hey its the UK so we're used to it!

one night in Exmouth
A thoroughly enjoyable stay in a very pleasant venue, and very convenient location. I particularly enjoyed the sliced, fried mushrooms which I had for breakfast, along with all the usual. They were very tasty, and in generous portion. Slight drawback was hearing the extractor fan from the next room's shower or toilet, at rather too early an hour.

Very friendly staff, great location
Stayed for 2 nights for a wedding and found he hotel perfectly adequate for our needs. Parking was reserved for us as requested and the staff all very friendly and helpful. Bedroom and bathroom on the small side but we were only sleeping there and it was comfortable enough with tea, coffee, water and biscuits in the room. My only slight complaint would be breakfast finished too early at 9am, would have thought 10am more customer friendly.

Good value, let down by details
We had a good sized, bright, clean bedroom. Unfortunately the bathroom (loo, shower, sink) which was created by partitioning off part of the main room, was absolutely tiny, it was very hard to have a shower without bashing knees and elbows on the walls/fittings/door etc, so they have been marked down on that. Breakfast not bad, but could improve the quality of some of the ingredients and why do they only ever give you half a fried tomato? Convenient location for seafront and town and overall good value.

Friendly and relaxed
The Dolphin Hotel is large enough to have a comfortable bar in the evenings but small enough to feel like a B & B. We had a spacious family room with lots of red decor giving it a cosy feel. We had a lovely stay with nice breakfasts but our only complaint would be the bathroom. The bath was half sized so not big enough to relax in and the shower was attached to the mixer taps so hard to get the temperature right and then it would suddenly change mid shower. However it wouldn't put me off a return visit. The location is very handy for the beach and restaurant area and the welcome friendly.
