“Best holiday spot on the NSW South Coast”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

Booked for a night but stayed for four. Still didn't have time to explore all the area. Andrew was extremely helpful with all activities and shared his local knowledge of he region. Only a stones throw to the shops and beaches, yet very quiet and relaxing. A great place to stay.

Dolphin shores is a perfect place to unwind for a few days from the fast paced life in Sydney.we have been several times and have never had a bad experience. It has the advantage of being on the edge of one of the most stunning and unspoiled national park areas. Aside from the obvious beauty of Jervis bay, dolphin shores offers good facilities, a laid back atmosphere and a very helpful owner who has extensive knowledge of the areas. The two bedroom luxury villas are particularly impressive and well designed. We look forward to returning again soon.

I recently stayed at Dolphin shores with my partner and we both had a wonderful time. Andrew was full of great advice on where to visit and eat, the room was clean and very comfortable. We will definitely be returning! !

We stayed there for our 4th wedding anniversary. Very helpful owner, very clean and quiet place to stay. Pretty close to everthing 5-10 mins drive away from Hyams beach, Green patch and Booderee national park. 2-3mins walk from shops. We found a home away from home. Won't be staying anywhere else except DOLPHIN SHORES whenever we're in jervis bay! 20th-22nd May 2014 (Beethoven and KC)

Stayed there for one night . Room pretty small though clean. If you like waking up too bricks in your face you will love it. Rooms are not very sound proof you can hear the manager talking from your room. When we got there even though the manager knew we were staying only for 1 night he just kept going on and on at what you can do in the area for about 20 minutes. The old grandpa seemed abit flirty with my partner. Beware guys. Haha! Beautiful area but would choose to stay somewhere else just because of the chatterbox flirty manager.

Thank you for your recent TripAdvisor review with specific examples of where we failed to meet your expectations on your visit. I apologise if my manner was overbearing and 'flirty' and it will certainly be taken onboard with future guests. Sometimes it takes feedback like yours to keep our service level in check so that we may continue to grow into the future.

Sorry that our rooms did not meet your expected standard. We are currently in the process of upgrading our rooms and photos of the new rooms can be seen under the Standard Spa Room tab.

If you have any further concerns or comments, please don't hesitate to contact me on (02)4441 6895 or info@dolphinshores.com.au

Kindest regards,
Andrew

This was a great place to stay in Jervis bay - the owner was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us great suggestions on things to see and restaurants to eat at, etc. Our room was newly renovated and was very nice - we would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for 1 night on our car journey from Melbourne to Sydney. On arrival at reception we received a warm welcome from the owner, although we did not know then that we would would be in for a half hour lecture on what was to see in the local area. It would have been far better to be shown to our room and been given the offer to come back to reception if we wanted for more information on what to do and see. Fortunately we had only done a 3 hour drive from Eden so were not that tired - would have been very fed up otherwise!! Room was pretty average and had what you would expect. The aspect of room 10 was not good due to the front door of the 2 rooms next door being right outside so you heard all the comings and goings ( woken up at 7 in the morning). Also no free wifi in this day and age was a big let down!! AU$10 per day was the charge if required.
