Our second visit and it has not lost its appeal. Both times we have reserved the upstairs room with balcony overlooking the sea . I still find the modern approach of open plan toilet disconcerting though. Thank goodness there is a blind which can be lowered ... Disappointed that in winter there was no electric under blanket to ward off... More

I thought I had sent my review of Dolphin Guest House some time back but found it under 'draft', sorry. For any visitor to Cape Town who wished to stay in an inexpensive small hotel within easy distance of everything, overlooking the sea and very near the Waterfront Complex then Dolphin Inn is ideal. Parking in front is free and... More

Very homely and welcoming. Hosts Paul & Tania are doing a good job in caring for just about every need. There's a stocked fridge in the room with snacks and drinks and an honesty bar in the lounge. Uninterrupted view of the Green Point promenade and close proximity to all attractions and the V&A Waterfront makes this the ideal holiday... More

The place is very nice and peaceful but not too far away from the activities of any nice and pleasant beaches around. You have fast food joints pubs and long stretch of long and not so busy road on which to try your skateboard along. The place give you a feeling very place and it is perfect B&B .. .

Stayed here before, and nothing has changed. Still the same stunning location, awesome hosts and a view to die for. Once again the owners Paul and Tania went out of their way to make us feel at home. The guest house is a easy walk to the V+A Waterfront, Cape Town stadium and some good restaurants. The promenade is on... More

Perfect location right on the water. Friendly proprietors. Nicely appointed room (although not large). I was lucky to get a last-minute booking; generally requires booking ahead. Saw whales right from the front window. Overall delightful.

We stayed in the front suite and the view from the room, lovely balcony and also the breakfast room is superb. The suite was large and the bathroom really luxurious - great shower and bath. Everything you needed was provided and kept really clean. The owners and the other staff are really nice, friendly and helpful, and breakfast was good.... More

We found the owners, Paul and Tania to be extremely helpful with tips and local knowledge and their rates are extrememly competitive. The guest house hits all the important highlights: Good beds, good showers, good coffee and GREAT location! Watching dolphins leaping in the... More

Dolphin Inn is has ideal location (10 min by foot to Waterfront), no problem with parking just in the front. There is an ocean view from dining room which is simply amazing while eating breakfasts. Owners prepare fresh breakfast. It is lovely to chat with them or ask for advises. Just in the front is a long and safe promenade... More

This guest house is in a great location on the beach road. We loved being so close to the coast, and also able to walk to the V&A. The breakfasts were great and we enjoyed the honesty bar. Thanks Paul and Tania for a great stay in Cape Town.
