I have absolutely no complaints, we stayed here for 1 night and it was in a great location, clean and spacious room, great spa bath, nicely furnished, easy parking...And Andrew was very helpful and gave us an excellent run down to local amenities, attractions and recommendations. I would say good value for money and would stay again.

Recently tripped around the South Coast and spent a night here. On arrival we were welcomed so warmly and given lots of information about the area.
It's easy to find and centrally located. A quick drive to many great beaches and a short walk to shops in Vincentia and the beach.
Our room was massive however a little dark. The furnishings were modern and the bed was gigantic as was the tv.
The bed was very comfy.
The shower room and toiletries supplied were welcome.
The pool/spa was heaven although small but seriously so relaxing.
It is hard to see the turn off for the accommodation at night time. There was a light right outside our door which meant on arriving back there were hundreds of flies on our door and some managed to sneak in when we were going into the accommodation which was annoying. If only the lights were on sensor this could be avoided but I couldn't fault the accommodation otherwise. I would recommend it.

My wife and I spent a weekend in a spa room at the Dolphin Shores in early December 2012. The owner was very knowledgeable and gave us loads of information on the local area. First impression was how clean the room was. The brick walls made it a little dark, not a major issue overall. Liked the way the owner published his plans for improving the motel. My wife loved he bed while I felt it was a little hard. Location was ideal with Coles and a small shopping centre about a five minute walk. There was a also a walkway that lead along the foreshore from Vincentia to Huskisson. Beautiful walk with lots of birds that took about 40 minutes each way. It was a lovely way to start the day, a walk down to Huskisson have breakfast then walk back.

Room Tip: Not an issue.

We stayed 2 nights at Dolphin shores in Vincentia and was so impressed. The rooms were clean and perfect. Even the bed was so comfortable & huge TV.
Surrounded by the bush and birdlife it was amazing sitting on the porch having coffee, listening to all the birds. What a tranquil place. The owners were great and really communicated with us.

We really loved our stay at Dolphin Shores and we are already planning our next one. Jervis Bay is an amazing place and Dolphin Shores' owner just makes it perfect. He was really welcoming and friendly, spending a lot of time giving us advices on where to go, what to see, the best walks, the best beaches to visit. The room was huge, really clean and comfortable. We definitely recommend it.

We stayed one night and had the standard spa room. The room was very clean and a reasonable size but had a dated feel with the exposed brick walls. We were expecting something a bit more modern for a 4 star hotel. Foxtel or Austar would have been good for the evening too considering there isn't anything do at night in the area once you've finished dinner. Well located, only a 5 minute drive to Huskisson where there are lots of dinner options, Coles is walking distance and Hyams Beach and the National Park are only a short drive away.

Not recommended for a romantic weekend away, better suited to families.

Hi we stayed at their cheapest room....but it was not cheap for the provisions....it had a large king size bed plus a single bed for our kid...LCD TV , tea coffee maker, fridge and the stuff..but no microwave.....that's for one level up.but the microwave didn't make a difference as we stayed for a night....but the best thing was the proprietors gave you a decent brief of what you could do in and around the area..the eating spots, the sigh seeing etc.....and that was very helpful and useful......the room was large nd comfortable ....with sufficient toiletries and linen provided.....milk was provide for tea and coffee at the time of check in...and we were asked whether we were going to leave early or late the next day....the motel is located at VIncentia....but that doesn't make any difference as in jervis bay everything is close by...huskisson was 5 mins drive and the famous e HYams beach a 10-12 min drive......on the whole this place was absolutely value for money....there is a Coles nearby just walking distance and also there are a few eating joints next to it...some of which close a bit early...but plenty of places n huskisson to o and eat a late dinner....but we did what was suggested by the proprietor.....packed our dinner and went t eat by the ocean....just wonderful.....as far as jervis bay is concerned...it is a hidden secret...just too beautiful..lots of places to see.....lovely beaches...just go to anyone and sit down for ages..lithe water is clear and welcoming....people very friendly.........on the whole a must for any one insisting australia....on the whole I m glad I didn't book a more expensive beach facing cottage...as this one was perfect for and things were as per specifications as mentioned n their websites...like our room said only a toaster and no microwave and that's what was there...so no cribs n that....a wonderful stay and experience..

Room Tip: The owner has discount punchers for the few boat rides which move out of huskisson...so ask for one...
