We hunted for accommodation in the Blouberg strand area and used the 4-star rating and Trip Advisor ratings as our guidelines for booking at the hotel. The setting is superb, but the hotel itself is in bad need of a makeover. Rooms are dated and furnishings have seen better days. Service at the restaurant was not up to standard but... More

We loved the concept that although this is a hotel with all standard hotel facilities, including a very good restaurant and bar, the room was self-catering, with well equipped kitchenette (no oven but 4 hot plates and microwave). The rooms were also massive with seperate bedroom, living areas and great balconies. Sea facing rooms have wonderful views of Table Mountain.... More

3 night stay at this fantastic hotel. Opted for sea view room after much deliberation, other alternative was the Cabana and were very happy with our choice. Bonus is that rooms are more like mini apartments, living area and balcony had fantastic views, bedroom was towards back of apartment and backed onto corridor. Beach is easily accessible from the hotel... More

We stayed at this hotel one night when our party of 4 could not get into our airbnb. We arrived after midnight and were desperate for a place to stay.

Had some issues whilst checking in where they tried to charge us for kids breakfasts after they said kids were included in the price when we booked. They did honour their booking and we did not have to pay for their breakfast. Breakfast was sufficient but needs some more variety. Rooms were clean and well serviced but are a little... More

Everything I want from a typical seaside hotel - friendly staff, delicious food, and the beach cabana was stunning. Direct access to the sparkling white beaches - a quick walk from your room. Magnificent views - bottled water and chocolates! Could definitely have stayed a few more nights and will be visiting again in the future.

Had a lovely weekend at the Dolphin Beach Hotel. Staff were friendly, room was lovely with a huge bathroom and our sea facing room with view of Table Mountain across the Bay was simply stunning. Right on the beach and breakfast was good too.
