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....

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...

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...

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.
