    "Dolphin Hotel Gorey"
    By , New Malden, UK
    This was my third stay at the Dolphin - it's near where my sister and brother in law live and they joined me for evening meals in the hotel's excellent restaurant. I had a room on the second floor with superb views of the quay and across Grouville Bay.

    We booked a twin room, but upon arrival were given an apartment as no twin rooms were available. This was very convenient as I was with my mother, so we were able to have a room each. Although the decor is a little dated, the rooms were clean and we had a beautiful view of the bay. Being able to access the apartment from the ramp to the rear of the property was also a bonus as my mother could manage this access much better than the stairs through the hotel, thank you! In the evening we ate at in the restaurant and had the set menu. There was plenty of choice and the waiters were all very attentive, polite and personable. We all enjoyed our meals which were set at a very reasonable price. In the morning we had a delicious breakfast, served in a professional manner. All in all it was a very pleasant experience, we only wished we could have stayed longer!

    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.

    Welcoming and Friendly Hotel in a great location. Clean and tidy room overlooking the harbour. Very good breakfast and evening meals. Excellent staff, I would recommend this hotel, but with one reservation, the bar attached to the Hotel has loud music playing at weekends which can go on to the late hours, so if you are OK with that Great. Would I go here again, Yes, but I would request a room away from the bar area...

    The hotel is small and friendly. The staff are excellent and offer old-fashioned hospitality service which is sadly lacking in many places. I had a single room at the front. Although very small, it was comfortable and kept spotlessly clean. It was very hot at night on the days the sun shone, although the window opened fully to allow some night breeze. The view over Gorey Harbour was lovely but, as other guests have commented, the front of the hotel is very noisy from around 06:00 (when the bins are emptied and the buses start up) until after midnight (when the bar crowd finish and on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays live music/karaoke stops). I imagine it would be much quieter off-season. Breakfast is excellent; no fighting for a buffet, just a delightful four course waiter served breakfast which included full English or any style eggs or poached smoked haddock. The evening meal in the public bar was very disappointing (actually it was poor) but the silver service in the restaurant offered a rather 70s style approach to dinner which was actually a refreshing change. The fresh oysters and fish of the day were greatly appreciated and it was certainly worth paying the extra to eat there rather than in the bar. To finish my review, the staff members were outstanding and friendly...thank you for all your attention!

    I have stayed at Gorey before but this was my first time at the Dolphin. Overall I was quite happy with the hotel - the room was clean, the view was good, the staff were friendly and the breakfast was good. The only negative was the bar downstairs was very noisy with loud music playing until around midnight and a lot of noise from people. It was not helped by the fact that it was very hot so our windows were open. I do not remember any warnings at the time of booking but feel that this should be pointed out as it would be a problem to some clients

    Der Hotel Manager war sehr cooperativ. Haben ein Zimmer mit Meerblick gebucht. Da mussten wir zweimal für umziehen. Aber mit einem Abendessen wurde das mehr als ausgeglichen. Der Senior Barkeeper "Curly" wurde zu einem guten Freund. Vor allem seine Empfehlung einen "Eskimo Cocktail" statt teures Tafelwasser zu bestellen, war ein guter Tip. In der dazugehörigen Bar verkehren fast nur Einheimische, mit denen man schnell ins Gespräch kommt, was die Englischkenntnisse verbessert Super ist die Live Musik am Freitag und Samstag. Sonntags ist Karaoke. Klasse, wie meine Frau aufgefordert wurde, da mitzumachen. Insgesamt eine Erfahrung fürs Leben.

    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

    We had a generally comfortable night and very much enjoyed the breakfast and the efficient service. However, we had a slight issue with a very cold room and an unexplained early morning noise. I booked a room on the spur of the moment because we were going to meet friends for a meal elsewhere in Gorey and, although we are fairly local, we decided it would be nice not to worry about drinking and driving. We checked in and collected the key but didn't have time to go up and see the room. We returned at about midnight and were pleased to see that our room was nice and clean (recently refurbished maybe?) and the beds were comfortable. However, the room was very cold (the night storage heater didn't look like it was operational). We didn't contact anybody about this because it was so late, although we did mention it in the morning as we checked out. Hopefully you will be able to get it mended or put an alternative in the room. (Of course, if we had had time to see the room before we went out to our meal we could have mentioned that it was cold and I'm sure something would have been done about it; its obviously not the hotel's fault that we didn't! ) I had a very comfortable night until 6.30 a.m. when I was woken by a continuous and fairly loud noise that sounded a bit like a washing machine on a spin cycle and a bit like a motorbike idling . It was difficult to work out where the noise was coming from - perhaps it had something to do with water heating (as it seemed to start when other guests in the hotel started to leave their rooms, presumably having had their showers) or maybe kitchen extractor fans? The noise continued until around 8.00 a.m. with only a very brief period of quiet. I didn't bother to complain at the time because, in fairness, the room met our needs for the night. However, I strongly suggest that you check this out; anybody staying the night for leisure purposes would be very put off (It seemed that most of the other guests were workmen with early starts, although there was a German couple at breakfast). I don't know how full the hotel was but I would be surprised if nobody else commented. This wasn't intended to be a complaining review, but I think it is fair of me to make these comments.

    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.
