We felt very welcome at Dolphin Inn, such clean and neat rooms with a delicious home made breakfast. Its walking distance to the waterfront, and we had a drive trough the beautiful Chapmans Peak which was amazing.Would reccomend this overnight stay to everyone.

The Dolphin Inn is a nice place to stay. The only thing you might want to consider is if you have any allergies to cats. They have a cat that wanders around the lobby area while you are having breakfast, which isn't great if you are allergic. The room was ok, a little small. The location is nice and you... More

I had always seen the Dolphin Inn on the beach front and when I found the price was right I booked for a fortnight. I was a bit hesitant because I have had experiences of these "quaint' places. Anyway to my surprise it turned out to be very suitable for a single guest and I felt quite at home. Thanks... More

A great three night weekend before the Easter crowds arrived (and after the Argus cyclists had left). Paul and Tania were great hosts and prepared great breakfasts and tasty espresso-based coffee. The room was well equipped and beds comfy. bathroom and shower worked perfectly with a sliding door, saving space. No airconditioner in the room, but opening windows allowed fresh... More

The room was very clean, the service friendly and very helpful. Location was perfect right across from the ocean. Beautiful and safe place to stay and walk. I would highly recommend staying here. Would have given 5 stars but the room we had (across from the dining room) was noisy from 6:30 on. Otherwise it was a perfect setting.

Lovely guesthouse with a personal touch. Magnificient view of the ocean from the communal room, where breakfast was served. Great breakfast as well. Owners are friendly and helpful. Our room was neat, clean, and comfortable. The guesthouse is easily accessible, with restaurants and cafes nearby, and the Waterfront within walking (or jogging) distance. The jogging / walking / biking path... More

I stay here whenever I can. Close to great restaurants, the view is spectacular! Rooms are comfy and well kept. Breakfast served by the hosts is great and results in some welcome, informative conversation. Really superb place! Amazingly easy access to most attractions in Cape Town and within walking distance to the V&A Waterfront.

Spent a very relaxed four nights at the Dolphin Inn. We had the room at the front on the ground floor and thought it would be noisy at night with the traffic but it was nice and quiet. The lack of aircon was also not a problem as the fan was perfectly adequate. The communal area was great for meeting... More
