Stayed for two nights during peak period. Clean and spacious room that is serviced daily. Staff at check in were lovely. It is a little bit further from the main strip which makes it a little more quiet to stay at but a bit further to walk into town (10 minutes). A good option to stay at if you spend...

Our room was great for what we needed - 3 girls on a weekend. It was spacey, clean and had everything we needed for a good price. A little bit out of town but walkable (15-20 mins) and friendly staff. Would stay again if on a budget.

Stayed there 2 nights. Had a unit right in front of the reception; you need to close the curtains all the time or you'll feel a little "exposed" but besides that, perfect place to stay. Clean, good bed, everything you need (cutlery, microwave, fridge), parking, and free wifi. It is a motel so don't go expecting a huge luxury suite,...

Dolphins is an older style motel from back in the day when you parked your car out the front of a single room, where a tv, electric jug and small fridge were about all you got with a bed. What sets Dolphins apart is how some smart thinking management has both successfully modernised the rooms and introduced top level customer...

My friend and I stayed in two very comfortable rooms. This is the sort of accommodation that is becoming harder and harder to find: no frills, just a clean bright airy comfortable room with a clean bathroom, soft proper sized towels that don't resemble sandpaper hand-towels, fresh water in the fridge, windows that actually open... and friendly hosts who really...

We found a family room here via the tourist office in Byron Bay and it was fine for a 1 night stay. If we were staying longer I would have wanted a separate bedroom for the children (aged 12 & 16) but the four of us in 1 room was fine for 1 night. Our room was clean and warm...

I traveled in a group of 4 and booked 2 rooms (both with a queen bed). We made a very last minute booking at Dolphins as our previous accommodation was canceled due to unforeseen circumstances. This turned out to be quite a comfortable stay. The place was nice and quiet, with free-wifi. Receptionists were extremely friendly and made sure we...

Visited this motel during a stop over and was pleasantly surprised with the room and service. It's just a five minute walk to all the shops/bars/beach and was very reasonably price. Great little coffee shop next door also.

Great place to stay for a family. Clean, large & very comfortable; nice, quiet position; friendly and helpful staff; free DVD's available from Reception; large grassed area to kick a ball; great to have a kitchen when travelling with teenagers; close enough to walk to main street of Byron Bay (10min easy walk). Great base for exploring the area. Will...
