About this property

Sitting at the heart of the vibrant city of Southampton, this historic dog-friendly hotel has an unbeatable central location, making it the perfect base to begin a Hampshire adventure with your hound. The oldest hotel in the city, the Grade II listed Dolphin Hotel has over 500 years of history behind it. Despite its age, the Dolphin features modern furnishings and facilities, as well as plenty of 21st-Century creature comforts, guaranteeing a comfortable stay for you and your dog. Several of Southampton’s best dog-friendly destinations are right around the corner. The peaceful Palmerston Park offers a great place for your pooch to enjoy their evening run, or you can ramble into the award-winning Rockstone pub for a refreshing pint with your canine companion. Hop aboard the Hythe Ferry, or head further afield to Exbury Gardens, where you’ll marvel at the colourful fauna. After a lengthy day spent exploring the quaint villages and ancient woodlands of the New Forest, sink into your comfy bedroom for a restful night’s sleep. 

Dine with Your Dog

Your dogs can join you in Nelson’s Bar and Lounge for a leisurely drink. Nelson’s offers a tasty bar menu featuring hearty pub grub favourites for you to sink your teeth into. Your furry friend can also recline in your spacious room while you trial the Signature Restaurant, with a Vegan menu available for more variety. Enjoy a delicious sirloin or a colourful vegetable stir fry, and wash it down with a nightcap.

Bow wow factor

Your hound will be spoiled by the helpful staff, receiving plenty of treats and a special doggie beer to enjoy!

Dog-Friendly Nearby

The Dolphin’s central location places Southampton’s superb sights right on your doorstep. The sizable Palmerston Park is a short stroll away, providing a perfect spot to enjoy pleasant walks with your dog, and the impressive city walls offer another excellent walking route to enjoy. Accessible via a short car journey, the vibrant Exbury Gardens are not to be missed, providing a peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. For something completely different, head to Butser Ancient Farm. The archaeological site hosts recreations of ancient buildings from Britain’s lengthy history and welcomes four-legged visitors.
