I stayed for 7 or 8 nights total over New Years 2013 and can't recommend the Dolphin enough. Breakfast was fresh and delicious, rooms were great (bathroom's a little small but clean), beds were comfy, "honor" bar had water, wine and snacks at the ready, and Paul and Tania were extremely helpful on all fronts. I think the value for...

Good full breakfast .Bedrooms are OK down stairs- but also stayed twice & the upstairs room facing the mountain is the best value. Some rooms could use some updating & more space to store clothing. Owners Paul & Tania very friendly & attentive to all our needs. Best location near the lighthouse , stadium, walk & 15 minutes to the...

We stayed at Dolphin Inn for 7 nights in the beginning of Jan 2013. We could not have chosen a better place for our stay in Cape Town. Our hosts Paul and Tania made our stay feel like we were staying in our own house. The big breakfast room is like a living room, and the hosts made a wonderful...

The Pros: Paul was very friendly and welcoming. He was very helpful both in responding to my inquiries prior to check in and in orienting me to the city and surrounding areas during my stay. The main areas of the guesthouse are beautiful, nicely decorated with a great view of the beach. Rooms were clean. The Cons: The room we...

We spent a few days at the Dolphin Inn, a week before Christmas. The location right on Beach Road is absolutely superb - especially if you like to go for a jog early n the morning (or any time of the day, for that matter). Paul and Tania are superb hosts - and make a great cooked breakfast - which...

From the warm personal welcome from the innkeeper upon arrival to the equally warm hugs upon departure, our stay at the Dolphin Inn was superb in every respect. Small, informal space with comfortable rooms and interesting guests from multiple nations, it quickly became home away from home for my wife and me. Home cooked breakfasts to order, innkeepers anxious to...

I had high hopes for the Dolphin Inn after reading other reviews, and was definitely not disappointed. We stayed for 3 nights in Room 8 (sea view room on ground floor) and then a further 2 nights in Room 9 after leaving Cape Town for a few days. We had booked a mountain view room but by chance got upgraded...

I had the large sea view room on the first floor and it was simply magnificent. Lovely space. Great facilities. So homely. Large. Friendly staff... Seriously I loved this place! What are the other rooms like? The ones without this incredible view? No idea...and my room is only one with it as it's a small property. Hence no full marks....
