Dolphin Inn was an absolutely lovely guest house right on the Beach Road promenade in Cape Town. The rooms are charming and impeccably clean. The owners are fantastic! SO welcoming, full of great tips, and very accommodating. Perfect location--5 minute drive to V&A Waterfront, 10 minutes (tops!) to Clifton, Camp's Bay. Wish I could've stayed longer, but will certainly be... More

Perfect vacation in Cape Town in a super nice guesthouse! Hosts were very helpful with us and always available. Location in Mouille Point is perfect. Walking distance from V&A Waterfront. Great ocean view and boardwalk right in front of the house. Room #8 is a little too close to entrance door and breakfast area. More noises at night and in... More

This lovely guesthouse has a great view of the ocean that can be enjoyed while having breakfast. The rooms are simple, clean and very nice. While the owners were away, Sandra and Mullen managed the Inn. They were warm, helpful and cheerful. They helped us see our must-see sights given our tight schedule and they couldn't have been nicer.

The Dolphin Inn Guesthouse is a gem. Gorgeous ocean view with spectacular sunsets, convenient & plentiful unmetered street parking. Nicely equipped kitchenette for self-caterers. Watch dolphins and whales while the hosts whip up a delicious full breakfast. Decor is tasteful and very well maintained. My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in the oceanfront room pictured and the experience... More

Whichever type of accommodation you're used to, 5 star to youth hostels, you can not fail to benefit from a stay at the Dolphin. With the most relaxed and friendly owner/operators on the planet I enjoyed an uplifting stay and cannot wait to return. My particular room (not the highest grade on offer I understand), was like walking back into... More

As a San Franciscan, but former South African, who has been returning with my wife and some times family to South Africa every year for the past 20 years, I can unequivocally say the Dolphin Inn has one of the finest locations in Cape Town. It is on beach frontage road with opportunities to see dolphins and whales. It is... More

Paul & Tania really know how to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. They are the perfect hosts and make you feel more of a friend than a customer.
