We stayed only for one night and so glad we did. We got a spa room. It was clean. The bed was very comfortable (which I usually have difficulty finding at a motel), it is in a quiet location and the owner was very helpful. We would definitely stay there again when in the area.

I've always felt that people make trips most memorable, not just the attractions. In this case, Andrew was great to talk to, and very passionate and knowledgeable about the area and Booderee National Park. You won't find another person who can tell you exactly what to do in the area. If you're going to Dolphin Shores, you won't regret asking... More

Room & bed was very comfortable, though I would expect a bit more space, views or other inclusions (breakfast) for the price. Renovated bathroom with spa bath & nice fittings. No place to put soap on vanity. Plenty of white fluffy towels. Good suggestions for dining & access to clubs, eg Courtesy bus. Overall, friendly, nice one night stay, though... More

Good location, decent welcome, oldish room, simply way overpriced for what it is (costs us the same to stay one night at the beautiful East hotel in Camberra one week later). The good location is not an excuse for such difference in price !

AWFUL Experience I would not recommend this place. The owner is unreasonable and inflexible - and does not understand customer focus at all. We tried to cancel and/or change our booking just inside 48 hours due to a family accident. Not only was he rude, he accused us of lying and also accused many of his past customers of lying... More

I don’t often feel the need to respond to this nature of comment, however in this circumstance I am sorry there appears to have been a misunderstanding. It is our policy that at least 48 hours notice of check-in time (at least 2.00pm, two days before check-in) is required for any cancellations. At the same time, we do understand that... More

Stayed there twice, sept. 2013 and apr. 2014. First time it was my wife, me and my friend. Last time we came with my wife and her parents. Both visits we stayed in their Loft apartment. This type of accommodation suited us perfectly! It has full kitchen, bathroom, big dining table (big enough for family gathering) sofa, and TV/DVD on... More

Great property in a central location at Vincentia, only a short walk to the beach and general stores. The accommodation was very comfortable, we opted for a two storey loft apartment which offered a lot of space. Free wifi was only available if booked direct with the property rather than on booking websites like bookings.com / hotels.com but we just... More

My girlfriend and I spent one night here Thursday last. From the moment we arrived to the minute we left, we were made very welcome. Andrew, the manager, is an excellent advertisement for the whole of jervis bay region. Highly recommend to everyone. Thanks Andrew and friend. See you soon.

Booked for a night but stayed for four. Still didn't have time to explore all the area. Andrew was extremely helpful with all activities and shared his local knowledge of he region. Only a stones throw to the shops and beaches, yet very quiet and relaxing. A great place to stay.
