“very clean and well managed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

we spent a night at Dolphin and found it to be exceptionally clean and well managed. The owner was clearly involved and most helpful. Our stay was short but very comfortable and we recommend Dolphin for business or pleasure.

We had a wonderful stay in the Dolphin Inn with the whole family. Madeleine and the staff are so welcoming and helpful. They always do the extra bit to make you feel at home. The Breakfast is very good

Great, would like if the guest-house was on the beach. Parking was in the street, coming from Pretoria and would have liked it if there were more secure parking. Staff was friendly and the rooms was great.

Dolphin Inn was great stay. Location close to Atlantic, view of Table Mountain and a long inviting beach. But more: a highlight was the chance to spend personal time with the owners and to meet two beautiful granddaughters. The pastry chef's cake was another unexpected highlight.

I stayed for one night only and found this guest house to be clean and functional. They have all the usual services and the room I used was clean with everything in place. The location is very good, being far enough from the noise of the restaurants in Bloubergstrand but still close enough to walk if you wanted to. It is one block away from the beach and the beach itself is great for walking or running on.

Out of 9 accommodations in South Africa this was the one we felt "at home". Lying close to the beach the view to the Table Mountain never is far. The owners are very nice, very helpful, warm and friendly. Compared with other houses this one really offers showers with warm water without surprises. We enjoyed this save place very much and can only recommend it.
