“Unforgettable holiday - a wonderful hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We were made to feel totally welcome and at home from the moment we arrived. Beautiful setting - a minute's walk from the beach - and close to nice restaurants and shops. Lovely friendly people and a clean, comfortable room. Great breakfasts and love the idea of the honesty bar. Wifi was free - and there's use of a computer too - really helpful for planning the day's activities.
We loved our week's stay - we'll have to come back for a braai!

Friendly and close to the beach, had a lovely time. Great breakfast, pool, braai area, wifi. Big Bay just around the corner and Kitebeach within walking distance.
Book early as they seem very busy.

I was pleasantly surprice with the friendlyness of the all of the staff and the fact that the bar was open and trusted in this day and age. The trust they put in you makes one feel very important and selfrespected. Will recomend to everyone !!!!!

I can only say good things about my stay at Dolphin Inn. The room was lovely, the environment welcoming, the location just 2 streets away from Table View Beach, and the price for the accomodation was very reasonable. Madeleine and Bokkie are wonderful hosts and very accomodating.
I will definitely stay at Dolphin Inn again and recommend it to my friends, family and associates!

I now live in the UK and come back 'home' for my holidays and have now stayed 2x at the Dolphin Inn, in Dec 2011/Jan 2012 and Oct 2012, and I cannot say enough about Madeleine, Bokkie and their staff. It's very homely, they make you feel so welcome, the breakfasts are great, everybody bends over backwards to help you and the location is great. Various places to eat, and it's in walking distance of the Guesthouse. Am going back at the end of the year and my family from East London are all joining us. Would definately recommend it!!! Very affordable and comfortable.
