Dolphin Hotel Cambridge

Built on the site of the original Dolphin Hotel, which was once an old coaching inn, the Dolphin Hotel first opened on 1st March 1986.

Boats used to use the site’s mooring posts when visiting the town, typically while the bustling town market was taking place.


The term ‘dolphin’ does not actually relate to the marine mammal, despite it appearing in the hotel’s logo for many years. In fact, a dolphin is a man-made marine structure that extends above the water level and is not connected to shore.

30 years on, the hotel is one of the premier venues for weddings in Cambridgeshire, and is renowned for its spectacular views of beautiful meadows, and the stunning 15th Century bridge that arcs over the Great Ouse.

Whether you arrive by car or by boat, the Dolphin offers a stunning venue, first class service and luxury accommodation in a peaceful and beautiful location.
