I definitely prefer here than the other accommodation I've stayed in the past in byron. Little further to walk to town but its a nice walk and away from commotion in town. Staff are great and welcoming. Next to macs milk bar which do great burgers.

We found a family room here via the tourist office in Byron Bay and it was fine for a 1 night stay. If we were staying longer I would have wanted a separate bedroom for the children (aged 12 & 16) but the four of us in 1 room was fine for 1 night. Our room was clean and warm... More

I traveled in a group of 4 and booked 2 rooms (both with a queen bed). We made a very last minute booking at Dolphins as our previous accommodation was canceled due to unforeseen circumstances. This turned out to be quite a comfortable stay. The place was nice and quiet, with free-wifi. Receptionists were extremely friendly and made sure we... More

Visited this motel during a stop over and was pleasantly surprised with the room and service. It's just a five minute walk to all the shops/bars/beach and was very reasonably price. Great little coffee shop next door also.

Great place to stay for a family. Clean, large & very comfortable; nice, quiet position; friendly and helpful staff; free DVD's available from Reception; large grassed area to kick a ball; great to have a kitchen when travelling with teenagers; close enough to walk to main street of Byron Bay (10min easy walk). Great base for exploring the area. Will... More

This was our first night in Australia and the wonderful people at the information centre found us a bed for the night here just five minutes from town. The welcome was wonderful from the front desk receptionist and we got put in a unit well down the drive which was lovely and quiet. Large and clean unit with everything we... More

We come to Byron every 3-6 months and have stayed in numerous places over the years. This time it was a quick stopover for 1 night on the way to somewhere else. Mid-week winter school holidays - $125 for a double was a good price for Byron. Reception was lovely and courteous, room was tiny, hard to fit 2 suitcases... More

Clean, tidy and great value! Ladies at the desk were friendly and helpful with places to visit and eat. Close to town, we walked a couple of times. Was our first time staying in Byron Bay and it was amazing. Would definitely stay at the Dolphin Motor Inn again 😊

Good value for a double room compared to some other places we looked at. Clean and comfortable. It's about a 20 minute walk to the beach front, but at least you get to take in some of the surrounding area as you walk up. The owner/manager was spot on. He gave us lots of useful information about the area and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. Obviously a lot of money has been spent refurbishing the rooms. Good facilities - microwave, cutlery & crockery. Comfortable beds. Free Wi-Fi. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. A pleasure to stay here. It is not in the main heart of Byron Bay, but only a 5 minute walk away. Quiet rooms even though... More
