Good sized room with a big, comfortable bed and large bathroom. Breakfast hand delivered to the door every day included in the price. Great location with an easy walk in to town. Lovely upmarket vibe to the who place.
Had trouble finding staff when I needed someone, but always very helpful when they did arrive. Parking can be limited depending on arrival time.
Good location, convenient parking, nice staff, OK breakfast.
A bit noisy street outside, bathroom could use some refurbishing although well maintained.
The staff was very courteous and tried to be helpful.
The bed was very uncomfortable, a bathroom fan was running constantly from an adjoining room for 2 nights, very annoying. Also, long walk to favorite haunts.
limited parking I believe her name is Jenny(?), she was lovely!
Parking was OK, but could be better
The breakfast delivered to your room was an excellent touch. The pool and facilities were very good And the room very clean.
A little bit out of town, but not a problem.
Loved Carmel loved the Hotel it was very clean would definately come back
Was very dissapointed with the Admin procedure when checking out the Lady although very nice didn't seem competent and we are still not sure until it appears on Bank statements how or who's credit card is going to be debited and most importantly how much
Great location,clean and comfortable rooms,small but adequate breakfast delivered to your rooms,reception staff very helpful and courteous.
Tight car park,especially for SUV vehicles
Staff more than helpful. lovely setting,
Large clean rooms Great wifi Good location in town Very friendly staff
I loved the coziness and the atmosphere of The Dolphin Inn.
Location Front Desk staff were polite and helpfull
bed was not comfortable peeling wallpaper window cranks were all stripped.They told me maintenance staff would replace and left a pliers in the room.No cranks and pliers were still there.Not a $200 a night room by a longshot
Big, clean room, from the first floor we could see the sea. Good beds.
Décor refresh since our last visit 2 years ago staff very helpful and friendly well appointed, large rooms very clean pool Great location and free parking
No aircon - although they gave us a loan of a fan
Great location within walking distance to downtown Carmel, good value.
We were in a first floor room and the noise level was high on both nights of our stay. The first night because we could hear the people above walking around all night and the second night because a family was letting their children run and scream up and down the exterior walkway at 11 pm. Not necessarily a fault of the hotel, but others should be aware about possible noise from above if they get a first floor room.
Friendly staff, good wifi, spacious room, huge comfy bed. Would definitely stay here again.
Parking a bit tricky, but not as bad as it first looks.
We liked that it is in walking distance to town. The room was very clean and staff nice.
The breakfast option that is included is not very good. Very few choices.
Breakfast delivered to your door in an insulated cooler, coffee machine in the room and a welcoming coffee, tea and cookies setup in the lobby. Gas fireplace in the room to take off the evening chill.
We arrived late in the night, but the staff was firendly. The hotel is in a very nice building, and the room was clean, large, comfortable, with a fireplace and a good level of decor. Breakfast is free and it is served in the room. Carmel is not a large town, so the central position of the hotel is very good for every kind of activity.
The choice for breakfast is a bit limited.
Staff and facilities.
Noisy streets at night but then again it is a busy city.
Location probably best point. Parking available, Wifi good.
Breakfast was average, delivered to the room in an Esky.
There could be a bit more to the breakfast.
The hotel is well located, clean, quiet. The room was large for us (2 adults and 2 young children) and the breakfast is served to the room. The swimming pool was in repair but we were allowed to use the one of the hotel just in front, which was nice,especially for our kids. We forgot to book a baby crib but one was available for us.
Our double queen bed room was a bit dark but it didn't disturb us much as we were mostly outside.
The staff was very friendly We lived having breakfast delivered to out room. The fireplace in the room was delightful!
The room, the view, the comfortable bedand the size of the room
The narrow footspace on the stairs going up to the room and the noise from the room above us.. The top drawer of the dresser was broken and would drop each time the second drawer was opened.
