The Dolphin Point B&B is ok, although the rooms are smaller then expected.
What I regret the most about this accomodation is the information that they put on their website: "Situated a mere 5km South of Durban International Airport". This international airport is closed since the World Cup, and moved 50 km more to the north. If you book a hotel especially near the airport to catch a flight in the early morning, this is not funny. And moreover, it gets expensive when you have to take a cab after you returned your hired car to this same airport...we paid 1.100 ZAR to take a taxi to the hotel in the evening, and one back the next morning! More than the cost of the room...
When I complained, the owner gave me 200 ZAR reduction, and said that this info about the 5 km was not on his own website, it must have been on another website that I found the description. I just checked, now that we are back at home, and it is still on his own website www.dolphinpoint.co.za... he lied in my face...I still can't believe it.
Fortunately, this was the only bad experience we had in lovely south africa!
