    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.

    Lovely hotel, friendly staff, although if you opt for the sea room option you do get the noise of the bar under your window until closing time. The rooms were kept very clean but no air con so I imagine it could get quite warm. Really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return

    Right in the centre of the port area, great view of harbour, boats and castle. Strange start, as it looks like a basic seaside hotel, then the restaurant is all silver service with a smartly run bar. The staff are wonderfully smart and friendly, the food is a little dated, I had coquilles st. Jacques, which came as thick white sauce over scallops on mashed potato - for me it was a little heavy. Then we had bream and pasta, it was swimming in oil, tasted good though. The breakfast tea and coffee were awful, but I am fussy...I went to the cafe for a cup! If you stay expect the front bedrooms to be lively at night, it was not a problem for us and all was calm by 11pm, but I would suggest families with young children don't have a sea view! The rooms we had - 10 and 11 on second floor were a generous size with smart bathrooms and really good showers, with plenty of hot water. We loved watching the big tide coming in and receding, from the large window. We completed our 'round Jersey' walk here; walking to St Catherine's pier one day then joining up with st aubins Bay the next day. Two bus routes stop at Gorey Pier, the no.1 & no.2, and the service is very regular. We were very happy with our stay and would return.

    Our stay was perfect. The room we had provided a lovely view over Gorey harbour so we were awakened by the sound of the sea, the room was bright and clean. The restaurant and food was excellent, breakfast and evening dinner was served by the waters who were very friendly and helpful. The bar (downstairs) was very handy for a drink before evening dinner, also the entertainment in the bar on Friday and Saturday evening was good. I would recommend "The Dolphin" to anyone as the prices were reasonable and I could not fault a thing. We hope to return again in the near future. Thanks to all the staff for making our stay an experience not to be missed.

    I have been going to Jersey since I was a child and have stayed at many hotels. After finding this little gem of a hotel a few years ago, we haven't wanted to stay anywhere else, The rooms were always nice, but a little basic, the new makeover has made a big difference and the rooms are very tastefully done. The hotel is very nice throughout, but the biggest plus is the wonderful staff who take care of you like no hotel I've stayed at before. From the manager to the bar staff, receptionists and waiters, the genuine warmth and attention make your stay memorable. A special thank you to my good friend Diogo in the bar, who treats us like family. Graham Clark

The location is ideal, very pretty, and the bus service is brilliant. Perhaps they should offer a loyalty discount for returning guests!!!
