On arrival we were given a warm and friendly greeting. The room was very clean and presented well. Our room contained a king size bed, plus a single. A toaster, kettle, fridge, crockery, utensils plus the supply of fresh milk, biscuits, tea coffee and sugar was appreciated. A microwave, wasn't available in our room category, but other rooms do include... More

We stayed in a loft apartment, very quiet and comfortable. Just a short walk to the beach and short drive to Huskisson and the Booderee National Park. Really enjoyed our stay here. Andrew gave us lots of information about the area.

Needing accommodation near Vincentia at fairly short notice, with separate beds for two female friends, I settled on Dolphin Shores. Reception was friendly and helpful. The "loft apartment" was very clean but somewhat disappointing compared to the website photos.The outdoor setting on the "patio" which looks nice in the photo turned out to be a table and 2 chairs for...

This 2 bedroom villa catered for a family well. Kitchen is well equipped and decent (probably best villa kitchen I have seen). Situated across the road from beach... More

Location Location Location ... There are no views from this Motel, but it is a few hundred meters from a little shopping centre with nice restaurants and 5 mins from the beach via a foot track. The location is very peaceful as unlike other motels within a few km, it is NOT in the shopping strip (main drag). The units... More

We stayed for two nights in February 2015 in room 11. The room presented as clean, and there was an attention to detail - for example the origami display with the towels. The bed is comfortable. At night, the motel is quiet as it is back from the main road, and the units have been built with full brick. Staff... More

Owner is so rude, I couldn't believe how he spoke to me. I only asked if I could book all his rooms for two nights in a years time and he belittled me as if I was an idiot. Well ok I will take my money elsewhere.

I am sorry but I have no idea who you are. There have been no calls or front desk inquires to myself or any member of staff regarding booking out the whole motel for one or two days next year. I am not doubting that you may have had a horrible experience somewhere, but I can assure you that it... More

Had one of the newly renovated rooms. Exceptionally clean. Very modern. Fresh milk in the room for the morning coffee. Barbecue outside. Jacuzzi in the barhroom. Comfortable bed. Quiet location. We loved it here. And Hyams Beach has the whitest sand in the world according to the Guinness Book. Need more arguments to stay here?
