We had a wonderful time with at the Dolphin Inn. Paul is a great host, they are so friendly and so easy going. They have the best beds in the business, never slept in a bed so comfortable. This is a great place for activities but the walls are too thin to have a good lay in, otherwise really awesome... More

Awesome hosts, they added the X-Factor that distinguishes this guesthouse from any other in the area. Super location, walking distance from most popular venues, and if you can convince bus drivers to stop they will drop you off in front of the door. Breakfasts were the highlight of the day. Brilliant view, chilling music and great company from Paul, Tania... More

Our 4 days on the Cape Town waterfront as guests of Paul and Tania were everything we'd hoped - gracious hosts, loads of good local advice, exceptional breakfast, and really comfortable accommodations. We enjoyed every bit of the "Dolphin experience".

We stayed at the Dolphinn In last January when we were in Cape Town. It is a lovely Guest house run by Paul and Tania who serve you a great breakfast every morning and make you feel at home. Location at the beach and near the V&A Waterfront is perfect.

We enjoyed the breakfast in front of the sea hearing nice music in a very friendly atmosphere. The room and bathroom are clean, the food is good even the... More

The B&B is outstanding and the owners couldn't be nicer and more helpfull. Certainly a place I would recommend to friends and family. Also love to stay there again if or rather when I'll be back in Cape Town.

Stunning location with ready access to lovely walks on promenade, Green Point Park and nearby restaurants. Service was not great and very rushed and impersonal. No one was around most of the time - even when I wanted to check out! DSTV didn't work properly and bathroom blinds were dirty. Very dissappointing and didn't live up to the reviews. Location...

Dear Guest We are alarmed to hear of your complaint. We are currently out of SA as we have taken some much needed time off, leaving a Manager in charge of the Guesthouse in our absence. We pride ourselves on running a clean, friendly and helpful establishment. It disappoints us to hear of your unsatisfactory stay at the Dolphin Inn.... More
