Friendly, Reasonably Priced Hotel

The Dolphin is a friendly reasonably priced hotel.

Rooms are comfortable, though some are a little noisy. I like freeview TV as opposed to the pre selected channels that big chains provide. Food is reasonably priced and standard hotel choices. It is very convenient for the excellent choice of restaurants and Pubs in St Ives. Overall it is convenient and reasonably priced for my business stays in St Ives.

Very Convenient at a Reasonable Price

For a business visit this hotel is very convenient for St Ives Restaurants etc.

The rooms are fine but unremarkable. Comfortable and provide all you need when on business. Buffet breakfast was fine and convenient for a quick turnaround in the mornings.

Dolphin Hotel, St. Ives

Free parking on site; clean and tidy room, although the bathroom was like a sauna (heating on full); great full English breakfast; very friendly staff.

I'm not a spring chicken but was probably the youngest guest :-) Good value.

Decided to break our journey home from holiday at The Dolpin Hotel and we were not disappointed.

Our executive room was comfortable and spacious and although had not yet been upgraded, it was still well appointed with a lovely view of the river. Emma on reception was extremely helpful and is a definite asset to the hotel. We ate in the restaurant and the food was hot and well cooked, with a good selection of meals to choose from. All the staff were pleasant and attentive. A lovely end to our holiday.

One of our favourite places

The staff are all friendly and very helpful.

The food is excellent quality and prepared and cooked fresh, everyday. It is obviously cooked on the premises and is not just bought in pre-prepared. The setting is second to none. We have stayed here several times, it is thoroughly relaxing and un-pressured and we will continue to stay here.

Lovely riverside room

We were delighted with our choice of hotel and location of our room.

Right by the riverside we could watch the boats come in and out. We walked to our party venue at the other side of town within 20 minutes - breakfast was good, fresh with plenty of choice - would definitely return
