Thankyou so much to Jo, the owner, made us feel so relaxed and welcome in her lovely hotel. Very accommodating and we felt so comfortable especially in view of the difficult times. Superb superior sized bed and excellent room with lovely finishing touches.Great breakfast. Overall, a much needed small break after a bereavement.

What a wonderful, amazing, perfect find this was. From walking in and being greeting by the lovely Henry who checked us in and showed us to our room, until we left the next morning ... everything was just great. We stayed in Room 11 which was small but just what we needed and spotlessly clean. The most relaxing night sleep we ever had, in face we found it hard to get up and get out for breakfast. We had a choice of breakfast times and the dining room was all very Covid safe. There was nothing we could have wanted for breakfast that we didn’t have. Honestly, we can’t rate the Dolphin Hotel high enough. Jo treated us like a member of her family and we could have spent ages chatting to her. We can’t wait to rebook and come back again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Dolphin Hotel. We were warmly greeted by the hosts, whom were very nice, welcoming and dealt with COVID greatly. Rooms were nice and breakfast was fantastically done, with everything being ready at your table when you arrive. Fab & we would love to stay again.

Very friendly welcome. Host really trying to make business work in difficult times. Central location- short walk to beach, town centre and marina. Good covid compliance. Masks, Gel, wipes and gloves provided in room. Good breakfast pre-ordered night before. All you could want! Including fruit, yoghurt pastries etc Slight smell of damp in bathroom? Not sure why. All new soft furnishings and decor gives good impression, parked in street outside. Highly recommended ! Exmouth is nice town, well kept.
