I have stayed at Dolphin Shores twice now and each time I had an amazing stay. At check in I was always greeted with a friendly face (Andrew, Hotel Owner). He has impeccable knowledge of the area and could answer any question that I had, not to mention he is quite funny and a laugh is always just what I need after driving for several hours. The first stay I stayed in a Deluxe Spa Room, which was just beautiful and had everything I needed. My most recent stay was in a Standard Spa room, which I have to say isn't 'standard' at all compared to some other standard rooms I have stayed in elsewhere. The room itself was so clean I could probably eat off the floor (but I didn't) haha. Everything was presented so well and you could tell that they really take their time when cleaning and displaying the room products (towels, face washers, amenities, etc.). Overall it's a great place to stay if you want friendly staff, a clean room and a convenient location. I Will definitely be staying again in the future (:

Room Tip: All the Spa rooms have just been renovated so their bathrooms are so new and nice!

We spent 2 nights at dolphin shores. The location is close to all the attractions by car. The person at check in was really helpful and friendly. He gave us a lot of info and where to go around the area. The room was spacious, clean and well maintained with a comfortable king sized bed and in room spa. They have a BBQ area and will provide BBQ necessities if required.

Overall, a very enjoyable stay and would definitely stay here again.

When we approached the motel I was not expecting much but was completely amazed when we were led to a separate villa next to it. Everything was immaculately clean and looked brand new. The two bedroom villa was extremely well equipped, spacious kitchen with great appliances. Very tasteful decoration and most comfortable beds with beautiful linen. All necessary shops in close distance. We had 2 nights only and all of us wished we could stay much longer.

We spent a lovely 3 nights at dolphin shores, staying in a 'self-contained' room. There are lots of room types at Dolphin shores - I'd recommend a close look at what each room provides prior to booking.
We loved it. We met a pleasant young woman at check in, who gave us lots of friendly info as to local attractions.
The room was very clean and well appointed to our needs, with a nifty little kitchenette (no cooker). We booked via tripadvisor so had free wifi (it's $10 / day otherwise), which was very patchy. The owner kindly reset the router for us once when we pointed out to reception that the wifi had gone off. However it continued to cut out quite regularly, and connection slowed right down in the evenings - possibly choked by others using it.
There is a nice plunge pool and a BBQ area, and Dolphin shores is a 5 minute walk to the main shopping area and the beach.
I would definitely stay here again! Thank you.

Thankyou very much for your recent review of Dolphin Shores on TripAdvisor, we truly appreciate every bit of feedback from our guests.
We are pleased to read that you were impressed with the service and quality of your room as we pride ourselves on providing the highest quality to our guests.
We apologise that you were not able to achieve a satisfactory speed on our wifi connection. We are currently on the maximum ADSL speed available to this area, however we are limited by the technology available to the Vincentia area. The Australian government is currently undergoing major upgrades to internet services and should impact on our area sometime in the future.
We look forward to welcoming you back soon and hopefully the weather will be much nicer on your next stay.

Sincerely,
Andrew Ryder
Managing Director

My family stayed in 2 self-contained rooms that had all the amenities we needed. The area was compact but we had ample parking space. We all had a very good night’s sleep at this hotel. The rooms were very clean and spacious, the beds were comfortable and large. The owner, Andrew who also manned the reception desk was very hospitable. As it was our first trip to Jervis Bay, he told us about the places of interest, where the food was highly recommended and a little spot on the nearest beach for dolphin-watching. Because of the rains, we didn’t go around much but we promised to come back again this year. Will definitely stay in this place.
