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

Stayed here for 2 nights with 2 mates. Exactly what we were after and very much enjoyed the stay! Free wifi and clean rooms. Short walk from the main streets with shops and bars. Every room has a car parking space which helps.

Stayed here one night on our way through to the Gold Coast. Friendly welcome at reception. Free wifi offered. Older style motel but room lovely and clean. No hesitation recommending this place at all.

We stayed at Dolphins for one night to attend a family event in Byron Bay. We will happily stay there any time we need accommodation in Byron. Cheryl, one of the managers was the person I dealt with from booking, confirmation and through the stay. When we were a little late turning up, Cheryl called my mobile to ensure that... More

We spent four nights here while attending Byron Bay Bluesfest. Overall it was pretty much standard motel accommodation, although the room was very spacious with some kitchen facilities. Everything was very clean and comfortable, and the staff were friendly and helpful. It was a 10 min walk to the bus stop to get the shuttle to the festival. At close... More

This is not the best located or most modern choice in Byron. But the room was spacious, clean and well equipped. I was in a room set back from the road so the only thing I could hear generally was the geckos! At times the other guests were a bit noisy but guess you can get that everywhere. It is... More

A warm welcome by the manager. The triple room we booked was bright and well equipped. The chance to borrow barbecue equipment at no extra charge was a bonus. There was outdoor space to sit. It took around 15 minutes to walk into town where there was a choice of cafes, restaurants, bars and shops. The beach was just through... More

We've been in Oz for three weeks and this is the best place we have stayed at for the price. Walking distance to the town centre was about 15 mins, VERY comfortable bed, soft towels and big bathroom.Lady on reception was very informative about local amenities, and walks.
