Negative Reviews

There is a lot of Noise in the Evenings

The guest rooms at The Dolphin must not be very soundproof because guests reported being able to hear people talking in nearby rooms, people walking in the corridors and cars driving up and down the street.

The Parking is Inconvenient

The only parking that is available to guests is in a multi-story carpark that is very far away from the hotel which means guests have to walk quite a distance with their luggage to get to their room.

Poorly-prepared, Poor quality Breakfast

Guests reported that the breakfast served each morning is limited and of poor quality with overcooked, undercooked and stale items.
