          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.

          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.
