“Decent B&B”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

The hosts Wayne and Beatrice are lovely people and could not be more helpful. There was a very good breakfast and the place is very convenient to the centre of Huskisson.
The bed could have been better.
It was expensive but then it was the weekend of the Husky Long Course Triathlon when everything books out twelve months in advance. I sure that rate would be much better away from such a peak demand.

Thank you for your positive re-assuring comments, we do try hard to make our guests comfortable and love the feedback.
This was a busy premium weekend and perhaps at a not so busy time you may be able to avail yourself of one of our special packages.

We stayed here for two nights in early January and we had the most lovely stay. Wayne went above and beyond - he was so helpful letting us know the best beaches to visit where were only a handful of people on the beach and dolphins were leisurely swimming past. Wayne recommended great places to eat (he even organised dinner for us one evening as my international phone was not able to make a reservation at the local restaurant – Gunyah – a must for any foodie wanting high quality Australian cuisine). The room was spacious with its own external access with hard wood floors and a comfy furnishings. The B&B is very centrally located so you can easily walk to the local pub and local shops. I would highly recommend Dolphin Sands – we will be back.

From the moment we arrived at Dolphin Sands B&B we felt that we were enveloped by comfort and care.It was 42 degrees that day, the air conditioning was on in our room,chilled water and ice awaited us in the fridge. Wayne welcomed us and spent just the right amount of time chatting and giving us information about where to dine. Breakfast ,as everyone agrees,was second to none. Simply delicious!
The grounds are delightful ,tranquil and outside the private entrance to our room we had a pretty decked area with seating overlooking lovely water features.
This was a great find and if ever we make it back to NSW we would undoubtedly stay again.

We spent 4 nights at Dolphin Sands and loved it. The breakfast is wonderful, homemade and of excellent quality. The hosts are very kind and knowledgeable. The property is tastefully decorated, our room was clean. Since it was facing the road it was a bit noisy from the traffic. Overall we enjoyed our stay very much.

We drove from Sydney to Melbourne and our first stop was at the Dolphin Sands B&B. It could not have been a better pick. The house is dedicated to B&B guests and set in a lovely garden with a great set up for breakfast rain or shine. Wayne could not have been more helpful, he had the heater on in the room before our arrival on a cool spring afternoon. His advice on where to go to eat was spot on. The breakfast was just fantastic. His suggestions on what to do and where to go were just great. Don't hesitate to make a booking here!

This B&B is well located. The house is well presented and large, with a separate dining/living area. The breakfasts were very good. The hosts are generous with plenty of local knowledge. I would stay there again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dolphin Sands. The B&B is clean, and the hosts friendly, informative and welcoming. The food was delicious, homemade and made for each order. The B&B is in a great location, only a few mins from the centre of Huskisson and all that it offers. For our get-away from the city, this was just perfect. Thank you!
