We'd booked a motel room but we're given the choice of staying in one of the newly refurbished apartment rooms. We took them up on the offer and we're glad we did! The room was lovely, nice big balcony with a swing chair, big shower and comfy bed. Downstairs in the building was a big fully equipped kitchen and social... More

Stayed in Byron at Dolphins for two nights on return from road trip from Sydney. Nice clean spacious room with wifi and parking outside. Good location between Bangalow and Byron. Good 10-15mins walk in to Byron central/beach but if weather good not an issue. Far enough away from town so nice and quite. Overall good motel, good size room, comfy... More

Stayed for two nights during peak period. Clean and spacious room that is serviced daily. Staff at check in were lovely. It is a little bit further from the main strip which makes it a little more quiet to stay at but a bit further to walk into town (10 minutes). A good option to stay at if you spend... More

Our room was great for what we needed - 3 girls on a weekend. It was spacey, clean and had everything we needed for a good price. A little bit out of town but walkable (15-20 mins) and friendly staff. Would stay again if on a budget.

Stayed there 2 nights. Had a unit right in front of the reception; you need to close the curtains all the time or you'll feel a little "exposed" but besides that, perfect place to stay. Clean, good bed, everything you need (cutlery, microwave, fridge), parking, and free wifi. It is a motel so don't go expecting a huge luxury suite,... More

Dolphins is an older style motel from back in the day when you parked your car out the front of a single room, where a tv, electric jug and small fridge were about all you got with a bed. What sets Dolphins apart is how some smart thinking management has both successfully modernised the rooms and introduced top level customer... More

My friend and I stayed in two very comfortable rooms. This is the sort of accommodation that is becoming harder and harder to find: no frills, just a clean bright airy comfortable room with a clean bathroom, soft proper sized towels that don't resemble sandpaper hand-towels, fresh water in the fridge, windows that actually open... and friendly hosts who really...

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
