Unfortunately we only had 1 night here, but could have stayed longer. Ideally situated, lovely ocean views, within walking distance of V&A waterfront. Room very comfortable. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was superb. A wonderful way to start the day, sitting at the table watching the ships enter the bay. The decor is beautiful too. Has a lovely... More

We loved our 7 night stay at The Dolphin Inn. We walked every morning enjoying the scenery. Our hosts while Paul and Tania were away were great. Easy walking to the waterfront. Perfect location, highly recommend The Dolphin Inn.

We loved our 3 night stay at Dolphin Inn. Not only was it ideally situated near the hub of the city and the waterfront, but was also a real home away from home stay. The ecclectic and colourful communal spaces and the spacious bedroom were all so inviting. We enjoyed hearty breakfasts while watching dolphins frollicking in the ocean close... More

The our stay in Dolphin Inn was fabulous: the location directly in front of the see and in walking distance from the Waterfront,the homely atmosphere, the hosts, and not the least the feeling of security seeing people jogging and strolling near the beach even in the nights,a feeling that's absent in other places . If i'll came again in South... More

We haven't even left the place and we are planning that this would definitely be the place we would stay in, if we come back to Cape town. The location is brilliant, a ten minute walk brings you to the Waterfront, or catch the City bus three doors down. There are two excellent restaurants within a two minute walk and... More

This was our fourth stay at the Dolphin Inn and we'd never stay anywhere else in Cape Town. The hosts, Paul and Tania, are awesome and make you feel like part of their extended family. We love the relaxed, comfortable atmosphere and having your own keys to come and go as you please, makes it truly feel like a home... More

We had a very pleasant stay at the Dolphin Inn Guesthouse. The Guesthouse is located on a short distance from V&A Waterfront and Public Transport. It is very comfortable and has a great view on Table Bay.

The hosts were very trusting, friendly, and treated people very respectfully! The premises were very clean and nice. Other guests were friendly and fun to talk to. My room was a bit small, but roomy enough and comfortable. I was served a wonderful custom breakfast every morning. I think the location is one of the best in Cape Town! And... More

We stayed here as most of the budget hotels on the V&A were full, and was just so glad we landed here...as it was our best decision. A simple B&B, clean, well-kept rooms coupled with fantastic hosts - Paul and Tania, even Mahi (the cat) made us feel athome plus we also shared a passion for cricket and Indian criciket... More
