Lovely location. Lovely room. Loved the spa bath. So close to all the beautiful attractions. Definitely will be going back again. Andrew was so friendly and so helpful, letting us know exactly where to go and what to see. Couldn't have been happier with our experience.

Loved our stay in the 2 bedroom villa. It was a home away from home. We loved everything about it, the artworks, the spa, the bed and the location. Couldn't fault it at all. Thanks very much Dolphin Shores.

This hotel is lovely, it has spacious rooms and so many personal touches like a jug of fresh milk on check in and a bottle of cold water in the fridge. The manager is really helpful and is so passionate about the area, he will answer any questions and provide multiple choices if you aren't sure what to do or... More

If you need to learn about the Jervis Bay area come to Dolphin Shores as the owner, Andrew a commander in the navy, will provide a passionate description of what to see and do. As for the two bedroom deluxe villa, it was very spacious and clean. All amenities worked. Don't come here for the view as there isn't one.... More

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 !
