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

This was now my 2nd visit in Dolphin Inn Guesthouse. This time it felt like "coming home". Paul and Tania are looking after you and really taking care about you. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. You can enjoy breakfast (warm breakfast prepared based on your wishes) and enjoy the seaview! You can discuss about recommendations and...

The inn is located beautifully at the boulevard next to the Atlantic. Eating breakfast you see the joggers run at the seaside. Breakfast is very good. Prepareerde each morning by the owners themselves. A pleasant change when you tend to get used to the fact that virtually everything is done by black staff. Owners have created a relaxed atmosphere and... More

This was a lovely hotel. The Locum managers Mullen and Sandra were wonderful. Myself and my husband really felt looked after and Sandra's homemade muffins were amazing! They both advised us on places to go and because of this we went on the 2 day sightseeing bustour which was excellent. My tips are the Sea Facing Room is worth every... More

ww got lost on our way to the place we were staying. The owners of the dolphin inn took their time to help us rather than just send us on our way without a second thought. The guesthouse was beautiful and they had a wonderful set up for meals and drinks. Will definitely be staying here next time we're in... More

We stayed at the Dolphin Inn for 5 nights in September and it was a great way to start our honeymoon. The location was perfect for our hectivc days out and the rooms (we stayed in 2) were so comfortable. Breakfast each morning was lovely - plenty of fresh fruit, cooked food, muffins and coffee as well as chat with... More

We were 10 travellers arriving in Cape Town by train. The Dolphin Inn owners, Paul and Tanya, welcomed us warmly with lovely ensuite rooms and a fabulous view of Mouille Point. After staying in Joburg we were reluctant to park our van and trailer on the street but Paul, the owner, affixed a lock to the wheel and all was... More
