We had a wonderful 3 night stay. Jo and her staff are very friendly and professional and gave us a warm welcome. The mattresses and pillows are high quality which ensured a good sleep. The hotel is exceptionally clean throughout and well located for the beach and town. The breakfast is well cooked and presented. Ample precautions were made to combat any potential spread of coronavirus and we felt safe. The overall experience is good value for money and we have already booked a return visit.

We had a great stay at the hotel. Everyone was so friendly. Our room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast served by Victoria was of good choice and we appreciated her attention to detail ensuring we had a great breakfast. It was our first time at the hotel but we definitely would stay there again and would highly recommend the hotel to others. Great location to the beach and the town. Thank you Jo for a great stay at your hotel.

Great hotel and staff. Jo, Ben and Tim all great to chat to and my lad thoroughly enjoyed his break here too so good for all families. Close to everything in Exmouth. Really clean and attractive hotel with friendly atmosphere. Enjoyed our few days stay. My only tip would be the parking needs booking as can get busy at back of hotel. Breakfast options really good. Will probably return when down south again. Great family run establishment

We had a lovely 4 night stay at the dolphin hotel in Exmouth. The rooms were clean and the breakfast had a good range of choices. The owner made us feel very welcome, would take the time to chat how our day was etc and her generosity to my two daughters was very much appreciated. This was our first visit to Exmouth which we enjoyed very much and I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay.
