“Good location for family with young ones”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

This motel was slightly away from the hustle and bustle of the main strip and town-centre - which for a young family is perfect. We also had a car with us, so it was no problem getting to the supermarket (a 5-minute drive) or to the Lighthouse (15-minutes drive).

The room we had was comfortable and had everything you need for a short stay en route (microwave, satellite TV, air-conditioning, hot water, kettle, mini fridge).

It was very busy when we stayed so felt a little crowded, but otherwise no complaints of our stay.

We recently stayed at Dolphins Motel and found it to be a very nice place to stay with lovely clean well presented rooms at a realistic price. the staff & management were very friendly,helpful and went out of their way to make sure our stay was as enjoyable as possible.
dolphins is in a great location, close to all amenities,with just a short stroll to town.
we had a great time and would not hesitate to stay their again.

This motel is neat, clean and well located. It is just a 5-10 minute walk to town (depending on how fast one walks) and there is also a convenience store right next door for food and drinks. We found the room had everything we needed, a clean bathroom, kitchenette (with fridge, microwave, kettle and dishes to make simple meals) and comfortable beds. We could park our car right outside the room which made hauling luggage and bits and bobs easier. The managers were also helpful and pointed us in the direction of places we needed to find. We really enjoyed our stay in Byron because we chose to stay somewhere down to earth but perfectly clean, comfortable and convenient which allowed us to spend more on dinners out and a bit of shopping.

Nice place to stay in Byron Bay. Lovely clean rooms and bathrooms, and especially comfortable beds. Great price for such a popular beach resort. Easy walk to the shops and beach and delicious food right next door serving scrumptious burgers!
Would stay here again.

Recently stay for a special occasion, staff very helpful and accommodating. Great location close walk to town, club and cafe right next door. Clean and tidy rooms with good facilities. Grounds very tidy and parking right at front door. Would recommend for anyone looking for a reasonably priced room for a night or a week or more. Great place to base yourself in byron bay and explore the beauty of byron and the surrounding towns.

This was the third time we had stayed and we had just as good a time as on our previous stay.

The location is perfect! Its a short 10 min stroll into town to some of the best cafes and beaches in Australia but at the same time just out of the hustle and bustle and crowds!

We looked around for alternatives prior to our latest stay and came back here because after extensive research its the best value in town! Clean, Friendly and great value!

The people running this motel are straight out of Faulty Towers. Terrible service from people that seem to hate their motel guest. Rude. Not welcoming. Probably stressed due to it being Splendour In The Grass weekend but come on. Rooms were fine and what you expect from a motel. Mini fridge buzzing. But the people that run this place are grumpy and seem to hate their guests. I would advise to give this place a miss.
