I stay here whenever I can. Close to great restaurants, the view is spectacular! Rooms are comfy and well kept. Breakfast served by the hosts is great and results in some welcome, informative conversation. Really superb place! Amazingly easy access to most attractions in Cape Town and within walking distance to the V&A Waterfront.

Spent a very relaxed four nights at the Dolphin Inn. We had the room at the front on the ground floor and thought it would be noisy at night with the traffic but it was nice and quiet. The lack of aircon was also not a problem as the fan was perfectly adequate. The communal area was great for meeting... More

I would give this hotel my "one of my all time favorites" rating! Where to start? Beautiful decor, sweeping views of the sea, relaxed atmosphere, delicious breakfasts and last but hardly least, the charming hosts combine to make this inn one of my best vacation spots ever.

Great location. Very comfortable and homely accommodation. Quickly became friends to Tania and Paul (the Owners) who made us wonderful breakfast daily. We will definitely be returning to Dolphin Inn Guesthouse on our next visit to Cape Town.

It was not the first time that we stayed in this guest house, so that tells enough. It is directly by the sea and although we had no time for walks, we did enjoy the view of the beach. The waterfront is a mere 10 mins away. The hosts are very friendly and helpful and make every one feel at... More

This guesthouse is very comfortable and we felt very much at home during our recent stay. The caretaker hosts were fabulous and made us feel very welcome and they cooked a great breakfast. The location is fantastic, just across the road from the beach esplanade where you can walk or bike ride. Whales were spotted just offshore while we were... More

Lovely location and clean calm room with view of the sea. Close to great restaurants, V&A Waterfront, CTICC. Friendly caring service and great breakfast. Near the soccer stadium, great beaches nearby, visit the Mouille Point light house built in 1823.
