Shame could be a lovely hotel
No atmosphere at all, run down, heating didn't work so had free standing oil radiators in the room paid for king-size bed got standard double had to break your neck to see the river view that was paid for

Best Western Dolphin Hotel
Relaxing stay
The hotel was lovely, lots of parking which was great!. The local area is quaint and there's lots to see and do just a short walk away, I'd recommend this hotel highly if you're looking for an enjoyable quiet break. Our room had a view of the river and boats right outside, which was an added bonus. The staff were attentive and helpful, and the breakfast was top notch!.

Best Western Dolphin Hotel
Not perfect.
No heating in room, so given a small electric heater. Breakfast at 9am was sadly lacking in some items.
