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 the morning. Thanks to Sandra and Mullin!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back if possible.

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 rate includes breakfast which I thought was a fantastic deal. Overall, this Inn was as charming as were the lovely hosts. If I visit again (which I hope to), I would happily stay here.

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. My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in the oceanfront room pictured and the experience was far superior to most 5-star hotels we've stayed at. Paul and Tania are wonderful, well-traveled hosts that are a joy to be with.

There are 2 good restaurants along with a deli/convenience store and gelato place less than a block away. Easy walking distance to the V&A Waterfront.

We'll definitely be staying here when we're back in Cape Town, can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Splurge on the oceanfront room (with shaded patio), you won't be sorry!

Whichever type of accommodation you're used to, 5 star to youth hostels, you can not fail to benefit from a stay at the Dolphin. With the most relaxed and friendly owner/operators on the planet I enjoyed an uplifting stay and cannot wait to return. My particular room (not the highest grade on offer I understand), was like walking back into my own bedroom at home; I could not have been happier. The ocean at the front, the Cape Town stadium standing behind. Lekker!

Location wise, the Dolphin is on the shore front at Beach Road, Mouille Point, you have the ocean right outside your front door, with promenade complete with cyclists and joggers. There's a bus service right outside taking you to the nearby Waterfront Shopping complex but it's a great wee walk along the shore, you needn't bother with the bus - soak it up.

All in all, the owners have created the finest and most relaxed inn I've had the pleasure to stay in. I will definitely return and drag everyone I know to come with me at the first opportunity.

Room Tip: You room will be comfortable, I'm sure. This Inn excels in genuine hospitality.

As a San Franciscan, but former South African, who has been returning with my wife and some times family to South Africa every year for the past 20 years, I can unequivocally say the Dolphin Inn has one of the finest locations in Cape Town. It is on beach frontage road with opportunities to see dolphins and whales. It is a 15-minute walk in one direction from the famed waterfront area and a 10-minute walk in the other direction from the excellent, great-value restaurants of Sea Point. Super friendly hosts Paul and Tania make you feel that you are at home-way-from-home.

Room Tip: Be sure to book the front room downstairs or the luxury suite upstairs since both are large and have...

I booked inot the Dolphin Inn as my regular hotel in that area was full for the extended duration I was in Cape Town but I cannot fault that choice....OK so I have the room that is shown in the pictures, but eveything is great compared to the 4 & 5 star hotels I have stayed in locally.

OK so you dont get a bar and restuarant but 2 minutes walk away are a couple of places that all the locals use and across the road is the sea front.

All the facilities are as good as the hotels and if not better and the hosts Paul & Tania are great as per other reviewers....

I was here on business and so found the facilities more than adequate, wpuld I use it again...without a doubt...sort of spoilt now as the other places I stay in South ASfrica dont have this all round combination...

Room Tip: I paid for the suite overlooking the front, but I guess from the number of repeat custoemrs that th...
