As May is Local History Month, it’s the perfect time to share some of the wonderful history of our hotel….

• The hotel is the oldest in Southampton, one of the earliest references to the Dolphin is found in a document of 1454, but it certainly existed before then.

• It has been visited by many notable guests, including Queen Victoria and Admiral Lord Nelson. Jane Austen celebrated her 18th birthday there in 1793.
