The room was dusty and had an unpleasant plumbing odour. Suffice to say I did not sleep much that night and I normally have no problems sleeping in different environments. We had the standard room with dated decor and overall I'd say it's a motel standard accommodation being passed off as a hotel. A good location however, unfortunately after having... More

Stayed here in March - easy check in - staff helpful - room clean - comfortable bed - B B Q just outside with clean cutlery and sauces supplied. 5 minute walk to beach. It was one of the more pleasing motels we stayed in during our Oz trip. All Good

Stayed for 2 nights in May 2016. Clean, well equipped motel room. Friendly staff on check in. Great public pool at Vicentia Leisure centre nearby. Near shops and well placed for visiting beaches of Jervis Bay and Wreck Bay. Used restaurants in Huskisson. Would stay again.

Excellent value, nice and clean, comfortable. The staff are really friendly, helpful and welcoming. I'll be back to stay at Dolphin Shores, loved it. You can hear the ocean at night when your sitting outside, the linen is clean and the beds were comfortable. The only minor criticism would be there was no bathroom upstairs, having said that ours was... More

Our trip to the area was brief because we were attending a Saturday afternoon wedding in the area. I requested an earlier check-in time because of the wedding. The staff were very helpful with this. We had an apartment with lounge/dining area, well-equipped kitchen and bathroom downstairs and an area upstairs with comfortable sleeping for 4. The apartment was extremely... More

Stayed 3 nights recently in the 'standard spa room' and it was exactly as described. Very clean, tidy and reasonably new. The only downside was that the room had an odd odour to it. It wasn't a deal breaker but just want too pleasant. The hotel is very close to alot of attractions as well was Vincentia and Huskisson where... More

This hotel is quite small, and the rooms are all attached to each other, but the room itself was very nice. The spa bath was probably the highlight. The owner was very nice to us when we arrived, showing us the restaurants and beaches in the area and how to get there. Lovely place, will be returning!

This was a lovely little place but the pool doesn't warrant the size of the rooms. The accommodation was really big, bit dated but very clean. First notice was a sign telling us if we left dirty dishes it could cost us $75 which I thought was a bit negative. Still given 4 stars as location was good, local beaches... More

Great place to stay for a couple of days. Staff very knowledgeable on area & places to visit. Car needed to visit the beautiful bay area's, such as Hole in the Wall, Bristol Point & Murrays Point, where we saw amazing sunsets.

The Inn is located 1 block from the beach road and a large supermarket and shops. We had a deluxe spa room with kitchenette. The room was dark but this as due to the interior walls being open brickwork. The furniture was dated and dark lending to the overall feeling of darkness. The kitchenette had a fridge, microwave, kettle and... More
