A colleague recommended me this Guest house. I thank him for that! We spend a lovely week in Cape also because of Dolphin Inn! It's a very nice place to be. 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...

Not sure which rooms the other reviewers were in but the room we stayed in was so small (one side of the bed was against a wall) there wasnt room to swing a cat. The shower, toilet basin was also minute. The breakfast was tiny (2 small eggs and one rasher of bacon with a quarter tomato) so not overly... More

Warm welcome and wonderful, friendly atmosphere. The view from the balcony of the seafront apartment was amazing - watching the dolphins frolic as we ate breakfast - and Paul and Tanya could not have been more helpful, with tips ranging from where to eat to where to swim (try the huge lido, a brisk walk up the promenade, for a...

I liked the place very much, your wonderful paintings and the cosy atmosphere, like a livingroom. Breakfast every morning was very, very good. Your coffee...., mmmm. The view with the Atlantic ocean outside, was so relaxing. Close to everything.
