“Nice, basic location in great location”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

We were limited by choice, trying to find 2 nights at last minute at the beginning of January. The rooms are basic motel rooms, but comfortable. Location is great, short walk to beach, club, takeaway etc.

We had been travelling the Coast Road fro m Sydney and intended staying at Batemans Bay, but we were running a bit late, so decided to stay in Mollymook. We really chose the Dolphins by chance, but were very impressed. The room was spacious, well looked after, very clean and we thought it was good value.
We had dinner that evening at the Golf Club and were very impressed. The restaurant has a great view over the beach, the staff were very friendly, the service was good and so was the food.

Dolphins is in great location - you can walk to beach and the golf club. The staff are friendly and personable; nothing is too much trouble for them, The room we stayed in was very clean with everything we needed for our stay. Thanks Dolphins :)

Dolphins motel in Mollymook beach is one block back from the beach and about 150 meters from the Mollymook Golf Club. We have just come back from a stunning sunset beach walk which is only moments from the motel. The motel is clean, comfortable at a reasonable price compared to many other places on the beach. The room only had an overhead fan, no air-con which could be an issue in the hot summer months. The motel is very quite and strictly run. Would not suit the party guests , but if you want to relax at a fair price I would recommend. We saved our motel costs to go to Rick Steins restaurant on Mollymook headland tonight.

Room Tip: We had room number 1 a good choice with a double and single bed. I rate the swimming pool with one d...

We recently stayed for two nights on our way to Melbourne to collect a new caravan.
Dolphins is in an excellent location, very handy to the beach, clubs & restaurants.
Our room was just the right size,comfortable bed, microwave, & thankfully was very clean.The staff were also friendly , courteous , overall a pleasant relaxing break at a great price.

Had to stay in Mollymook for two nights for business. Had pre-booked. Arrived reasonably late on the Friday night. Parked in front of room. Key was in door as pre-arranged. Spent reasonably comfortable night. Off to work on the Saturday. Arrived back at motel late on Saturday afternoon, and went to office to fix up account. Told that I was parked in the wrong place (even though it was right in front of my room). There were only a few other guests, and no one was near my room. Very poor attitude on staff's behalf. Have not stayed there since, despite having to regularly go to Mollymook for work.

Our two nights stay in an adequate hotel were ruined by poor customer service from the motel owner. While the room was tidy and met our needs, we were shocked to be informed of extra unexpected 'terms and conditions' of our stay as we unpacked our bags an hour after our arrival. We were not made aware of these extra conditions during booking, via the motel website or upon checkin. Further still, these unexpected interruptions occurred on numerous occasions and made us feel uncomfortable and disrespected. Worse still when discussing with other patrons we were disgusted to find they had not been informed of these 'terms and conditions'. Overall the unprofessional nature of the handling of the customer service ruined the entire experience of our stay and we would not reurn.
