5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2012

we stayed there for only one night on the 31st of December 2011, and it was beyond awesome, I have stayed in a few guest houses before but must say this is one I enjoyed the most, they really go out of their way to make you feel welcome! Working in the tourism industry I would recommend it to any-one.

Room Tip: the room right at the top has the best view and nice big deck, but if you are travelling with chirld...

Review by: Heidi Peters, Pretoria (stayed: December 2011)

I stayed over in October for a conference happening in PE and was pleasantly surprised by Elaine's hospitality. It was a breath of fresh air and seeing dolphins and a whale while there was an added bonus. Even though it was just a short stay I felt at peace and at 'home'.
Vowed to come back in December with my son and friends. What a lovely stay!!!! The service is excellent and the kids were pleasantly surprised by a treat every day after cleaning left! The area has so much to offer but just sitting on the patio is enough as the view is awesome! Thanks for such a wonderful stay! Will be returning again and again!!!!

It was nice to spend our last few days overlooking the ocean before returning to the manicness in London. Rooms were very clean and very light, beautiful views, and Elaine could not have been more helpful and friendly. Would recommend this place without hesitation.

Having been at Dolphin's View Guest House for business and for pleasure repeatedly, I can only recommend this establishment.Elaine is the most perfect hostess.I just love the welcome by both her and the resident dogs.The rooms are spotless, spacious and the view of the ocean is beautiful.Sunsets are not to be missed and the sightings of Dolphins are almost guaranteed.Elaine is most helpful and accommodating. I always leave, feeling well rested (the best matresses) and look forward to my next visit.

Room Tip: Room number one has the best view

You could not wish for better GH accommodation, beautifully presented, clean and very spacous.Uninterupted view across the ocean, the only sound heard was the waves breaking on the rocks. Elaine the owner could not do enough for us and made our stay a wonderful experience. Would definitly return

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet and well appointed, choose ocean views to see the dolphins

I am just back from my stay in dolphins view guest house, absolutely wonderful,
apart from the fantastic view and the clean and spacous rooms, the owner Elaine could not have been more helpful and friendly. She welcomed us very warmly and nothing was too much trouble, this lady truly enjoys seeing to her guests needs and goes that bit further to ensure guests enjoy their stay, the ambience and setting should not be missed. I thoroughly recommend this guest house as it will be a stay they will not forget. Thanks Elaine.

Watching dolphins swim by, lying in bed in the morning, hearing the sound of the waves and smelling the fresh sea air is nothing short of being in paradise! Sunset is not to be missed, best sunset over the sea I have whitnissed for a very long time. The rooms are light, roomy and very comfortable beds. Nothing short of a exceptional guesthouse with very friendly people around. To get to the ocean, you merely have to "roll out" of bed and take a few steps across the road. Will I go back? my next stay is already booked with the family from England in January 2012!

Room Tip: Number 3 is great overlooking the ocean (but so does all the other rooms, overlook the ocean) number...
