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?

Perfect for a week or weekend, stayed for one night in a spa room, very comfortable and clean. Very close to local amenities and the superb beaches! The owner was a great help and showed us a great deal to do, would recommend and will stay here again in the future for sure!

This is a small sized motel but the room we had (Room 16) was a corner unit and was quite a bit larger than I was expecting. We had a kind sized bed in a room that was separated by folding doors, a very modern bathroom, sofa, table with chairs, small fridge, and a few other items. There is parking... More

We stayed at Dolphin shores for 4 nights with our 2 young sons. We stayed in one of the self contained villas. This was perfect for our needs. Due to diet restrictions of a family member dining out options were limited but the kitchen allowed us to prepare breakfast and lunch picnic every day as well as cooking 2 dinners.... More

We rented a self contained luxury apart for 2 nights not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the house and amenities. The house itself is only a few years old and was clean and we'll kept. The owner Andrew had excellent local knowledge and was very generous with his time. Definitely worth the stay.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2014

Clean, comfortable and spacious motel room. It's name advertises as a hotel, but it is a typical motel, with room units around a car park, without a view. The location is okay, with a short walk access to the beach. Wi-Fi was not working at the time of our visit. A bit pricey for a motel.
