I was accommodated quite unexpectedly at The Dolphin View Guesthouse and I was pleasantly surprised by the unusual yet very comfortable rooms. The owner stays on the premises (separately) which always makes for a better stay. I felt welcomed, felt at home and have recommended my stay to many friends.

Stunning guest house. Fantastic service. So tidy and staff were so efficient. Nothing was too much. Anita, the owner, was so accommodating. I couldn't believe she was even up ready for new guests arriving at 3am! I have never come across that sort of attention to detail. Will always stay here when I visit Jeffrey's Bay again. Highly recommend :-)

A lovely place with plenty of water around. Friendly and helpful staff. Fence around maybe because of an unsafe surrounding. Our room had a nice balcony and we could also sit there and admire the the area.

I would like to say the room was clean and comfortable, but it wasn't, the furniture was badly stianed, and the carpet a bit crunchy under foot! The "open plan " bathroom left things to be desired, the bath looked as though it hadn't been cleaned in a while The furniture in the bedroom was old and badly stained, and... More

We are sorry you didn't have a good experience at Dolphin View. We have looked seriously into your remarks and have decided to change a few things in the Ocean Room. In fact we have started revamping the room already and I am happy to put foto's of the end results on Tripadvisor when finished. Regarding the WiFi just note... More

We stayed 2 nights @ the Dolphin View Guesthouse in Jeffrey's Bay. Our room had a beautiful view overlooking the ocean. The room and en-suite bathroom is spacious and neat, but the décor is old-fashioned. The breakfast display was great and the hostess was friendly and helpful to ensure our stay in Jeffrey's Bay was pleasant
