The town-house was modern and clean. A bit disappointed that WIFI doesn't reach our town-house and also the reception is not 24 hours. Great to go with families and friends. Very close to Huskisson and also Hyams beach.

We had accurately advised the hotel that our arrival time was 7pm and we got a phone call at 6:30pm that they would leave the door unlocked with the keys inside, despite the fact the advertising on the website that reception was open until 8pm. The room was a daggy remnant from the 1980's/1990's with brick walls and stained wooden... More

Dolphin Shores is a decent place to stop at for a night or two, and has some nice modern features and fixtures, but I would argue it's much more of a motel than a hotel. The rooms face the car park, and it's a very basic layout. Pros - good location, quiet Cons - very basic, no view. Overall it's... More

We stayed here for just one night. Room was lovely and clean. Good shower and room facilities also. We found the lady at reception very helpful, her food and things to do recommendations were excellent and we were glad we took her advice.
