Black Dolphin is just outside Merimbula's CBD but it's only a 15 minute walk away. The facilities are showing their age but my room was clean, well presented and economical. I found the staff really friendly and helpful. Overall an enjoyable stay.

I stayed for two nights with my husband in april. Rooms were clean and comfortable for a short stay. Good location, close to boat ramp, beach and shops. Rate for room is reasonable and I would stay again.

Asked to microwave a simple baby bottle sanitiser for 2 minutes to be told NO! Every motel before and after were more than happy to do it. Very very rude assistant! Will never recommend a place that lacks such simple hospitality! Very hot in the rooms on a mild day outside. Not as close to the town centre as they...

I recently stayed here with my husband and 2 year old daughter. We played $20 extra for a room with air conditioning and foxtel. Staff were a bit rude. Room was old but clean. The bed was comfy. Quite basic but fine for our needs.

Perfect walking distance from beach and town. Parked the car when we arrived and it didnt move until it was time to go home. Basic, comfortable and private. Rooms were clean. Shower had very good pressure and hot water. Right across the road from an exceptionally good boat ramp.

This must hVe been a great place some time ago before the elements affected it. It needs a real makeover. Our reception was very efficient and the girl,handling it was full of smiles. The room was badly lit and shabby. The mosquito door onto the tiny balcony had a large hole in it and when it rained it's roof leaked...

At peak holiday time it we found this hotel to be reasonably priced for 2 people. The kitchenette was not as equipped as I expected, however we were able to use the bbq outside our room so all was good. This motel is perfectly located with easy and quick access to the beach and well within walking distance to the...

We had a room on the end for NYE and it wasnt overpriced at all. Its a great little set up with all you need and close to town. Service was excellent and the cleaners were brilliant and got us some new batteries for the remote and did a fantastic job. Possibly the best shower I have had in any...
