10/10 Exceptional

Unbelievably helpful, thanks. Definitely use again
It has an upmarket Travelodge feel, but everything is there you would need, plus more tea and coffee! But I was there for a gig, down from the north. Both I by train and the band by van hadn't eaten pretty much anything all day; by the end we needed something and most places were shut but we could get pizza delivered - but to where? So we all went back to the Dolphin (only me staying there) and they were happy to let us wait, sit and eat it in reception. Not everywhere would do that. You guys were brilliant, thank you!
