The Dolphin Hotel is a privately owned, family run Hotel and Bed and Breakfast situated in the heart of the picturesque fishing village of Beer yet only 150 yards from the stunning cove with its sheltered beach. The building itself is a grade II listed building with an interesting history dating back over 200 years.
All of our twenty-three bedrooms are en-suite (with either shower or bath) and all have colour digital TV and tea and coffee making facilities. We welcome singles, couples and families alike. We are open for 10 months of the year, closing in January and February, with the advantage of our own private car park for hotel residents.

The Dolphin Hotel prides itself in offering its guests and casual customers excellent, traditional fayre from full breakfast, lunchtime snacks, innovative “special” dishes to a comprehensive A La Carte menu and delicious sweet dishes. The quality of the food reflects the selection of fresh produce used, including a variety of fish caught daily by Beer Fishermen, locally produced meat, dairy products, and fruit & vegetables in season.

Our popular Lounge Bar serves snacks, light bites at Lunchtime and an A La Carte menu. The Restaurant is the perfect place for an intimate meal for 2 or for a celebration with family and friends (reservations are strongly recommended to avoid disappointment). Or why not try our Carvery which is served every Sunday from March – November in the Function Room. We have an extended patio at the back of the hotel with plenty of tables and chairs.

Cream teas are also available during the summer months from 2:30 – 6pm every day; in winter Saturday & Sunday only from 2:30-6pm.

Our bright spacious function room offers a flexible space for Wedding Receptions, Meetings, Celebrations, Christmas Parties, Fundraisers and other special events. With a variety of catering options available.


Your four-legged friends are welcome to join you during your stay. We cater for well-behaved dogs in some allocated bedrooms and dogs are permitted in all public rooms except the Restaurant and Function Room.
A warm welcome awaits you from all the family and staff at The Dolphin and we hope you enjoy your stay.
