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 spent 10 days at the Dolphin Inn at the end of November into December 2014. 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.

This is a place where your hosts Tanja & Paul make you feel a little bit like home. Rooms are not big, but this will be more then compensated by the wonderfull view from the living room! The place is ideally located directly at the Beach Rd. We really enjoyed our stay in this guesthouse!

If you are looking for 5 star Hotel accommodation... this is not the place... However.... what it lacks in marble, plush curtains and pillows and concierge services, it more than makes up for in comfort, cleanliness, warmth and most importantly friendliness. We had a terrific time here. Some of the rooms are a little small, but others are incredibly spacious... More

I stayed here for two nights in mid December. The hosts are friendly and very welcoming- I saw them at breakfast and was then up and out. Breakfast has a huge variety- there's a cooked breakfast available on order- with friendly and personal service. Note that breakfast runs from 7-9. My room had everything I needed- a kettle is provided... More

A neat and tidy little guesthouse overlooking the ocean. Rooms are serviced daily. Price includes a good breakfast. Only snag is that bathroom does not have a door. Ideal location. Close to waterfront, signal hoill, cableway, robben island. Ask for room overlooking the ocean otherwise there is no view. Owners warm and friendly.

Mouille Point is such a good area in which to stay , more "genteel " than Sea Point next door and so nice and close to the V & A Waterfront. And another plus is the Guest House is located right on Beach Road with direct access to the walkway which winds for kilometers along the sea front. We opted... More

Well, well, well! What a great find in the Mother City! I have often ogled Dolphin Inn, driven past, glanced at it, but did not quite get to the deed itself: making a reservation. With the usual haunts all full, I took the plunge and I am so pleased I did. Paul and Tania are the best hosts ever! One... More
