A very comfortable and convenient place to stay. Our room was spacious with a lovely balcony and view to the ocean across a residential area. Only downside was the somewhat open aspect to the on suite bathroom. The breakfast and the ambience of having an indoor pool was excellent. The owner was extremely pleasant too. All in all a good...

We stayed in the Whale room, a en-suite single room. Bathroom is open plan with glass bricks for privacy where needed. Small fridge, kettle coffee and tea available as expected. Buffet style breakfast served next to the indoor pool in the morning. The hostess is very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

We had the most amazing stay at Dolphin View Guesthouse. We've already booked for our next holiday. Our room was stunning, we loved the indoor pool. The breakfasts were perfect. We used the facilities for a braai for our family, and everything was there.

My husband and I stopped over at Dolphin View for a night - we stayed in the Dolphin Suite. It is a stunning room with gorgeous bathroom, private balcony with a view of the sea and nice lounge area as well. It was clean and very comfortable. Great value for money and great for a relaxing, romantic getaway.

My stay at Dolphin View, be it brief, was fantastic. The room was amazing with a spectacular view. The rooms were clean with not a thing out of place. My quick dip in the indoor pool was a highlight. Thanks to Anita who packed me a breakfast box as I left early. Little touches like that make you feel like...

We stayed three nights last week and loved the accommodation. Anita is a wonderful host, she upgraded us and we had a lovely room with wonderful views of the bay. Breakfast is amazing with Anita's homemade muffins and lovely fresh fruit salads adding the finishing touches. It was so nice to stay in a safe place without having bars at...

We had one of the suites. Very relaxing and comfortable...Anita is a great unobtrusive host. Staff all very pleasant. Breakfast up to a high standard taken by the pool. Thoroughly enjoyed...

A good stay in Jeffreys Bay with some lovely service. Very tough to give full marks due to pool maintenance which was out of our control and the manager's as well, but this was outweighed by the manager's great service. A quirky little room but I enjoyed something a little bit different.
