    Dolphin Hotel & Restaurant
    "EXCELLENT"
    By , Gateshead, UK
    My 88 year old dad and myself booked into the Dolpin for five days. I cannot praise the hotel high enough. The staff were very professional and couldn't do enough to help. Food was excellent and again couldn't fault the meals and lovely breakfasts. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. Next time we visit Jersey we will defiantly be staying at the Dolphin.

    This hotel is in a great location for walking, sight seeing, the beach and very good restaurants. The staff are professional and friendly, I was staying here on my own visiting friends. I only ate breakfast in the restaurant but this was good quality produce and excellent service. My seafront room was clean with comfortable bed although if you are there for peace and quiet I would suggest an inland room as there is a lot of noise at the front, outside seating is directly below the windows. I would happily stay here again

    Stayed at the Dolphin for one night on business. Its a lovely hotel, rooms are spotlessly clean, staff very friendly and helpful and you couldn't ask for a nicer location, right on the harbour front with many restaurants and bars around. Very easy to get into St Helier also.

    We had a front facing room over looking Gorey Bay - lovely views. The staff especially the bar man in the hotel part was lovely. Always a welcoming face. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was tasty with good choice. Wi Fi in the room was bad but in the bar and downstairs was great for what we needed. The noise outside in the morning from quite early on could disturb a light sleeper - take ear plugs just in case.

    The hotel is very clean, friendly and conveniently placed for us. The food is excellant. This is the second year we have stayed with them and would recommend to anyone. The only down side is that the rooms are upstairs and when you book an inside facing room, you usually do not get a lovely view as described on their site, but a wall!!

    Gorey harbour is a beautiful location and the hotel is in a great position. The restaurant was excellent with a great choice of courses included in the half board price. I chose mussels, sea bass on Thai noodles with stir fry vegetables and creme brulee. There are lovely walks from the hotel around the harbour, up to the castle or up the steep hill past all the potatoe fields. Breakfast was also excellent and included choices of porridge and haddock.

    The bed was comfortable and my room and bathroom were fine - overlooking the harbour - and even on the evening of the Gorey fete the noise level was acceptable. The staff were friendly and efficient and the breakfast tasty with a reasonable amount of choice in the menu. My only complaint is that on the one night I ate with a friend in the restaurant she had a slight upset stomach afterwards.

    We love Jersey and have gone there on holiday umpteen times over the years. We have stayed at many hotels, a lot of them very good, but our favourite is the Dolphin. It could not be better situated on the beautiful Gorey harbour. The hotel is kept in immaculate order, the rooms are both comfortable and tastefully decorated. The restaurant is excellent, we are very much "foodies" and the standard and presentation of dishes is first class. It is a good sign when locals regularly use it, when there are many good restaurants to chose from. The cherry on the cake is the exceptional staff. You could not be in better hands, there is genuine warmth here, not just your "have a nice day" types. Nothing is too much bother and the hotel is run immaculately. From the manager Avalino, who is very much "front of house" and takes the time to ensure all is well with you, to the restaurant which Louis has running like clockwork, and the bar which is run by our very good friend Diogo, a real character, who takes care of us like family. If you want to have a totally relaxing holiday, with excellent food and staff that actually care about you, then The Dolphin ticks every box. I would recommend paying that little bit extra and booking a harbour facing room, which has a wonderful view, if one is available.
