This guesthouse is very comfortable and we felt very much at home during our recent stay. The caretaker hosts were fabulous and made us feel very welcome and they cooked a great breakfast. The location is fantastic, just across the road from the beach esplanade where you can walk or bike ride. Whales were spotted just offshore while we were... More

Lovely location and clean calm room with view of the sea. Close to great restaurants, V&A Waterfront, CTICC. Friendly caring service and great breakfast. Near the soccer stadium, great beaches nearby, visit the Mouille Point light house built in 1823.

I have stayed here twice now and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else when I go back to Cape Town. The Inn is right on the water with amazing views across the ocean. In a great neighborhood with tons of restaurants and bars not far away, but not right in the middle of the action. Since it is right on... More

This guesthouse has a cheery, friendly feel about it, and a good location if you want to be based in the waterfront area (good for accessing the V&A shops and the Red Open Top Bus tours). The owners Paul (nice and friendly) and Tanya went on holidays during my stay. The locum couple Sandra and Mullen who then arrived made... More

Hello Atheoretical! Thank you for taking the time and effort to post your comments. We regret that you feel we "poked" you into an unsuitable room. At the time of your booking, room 3 was indeed the only room available and we were unable to move you to another room. Yes, room no.3 is in fact our smallest room, however... More

Our second visit and it has not lost its appeal. Both times we have reserved the upstairs room with balcony overlooking the sea . I still find the modern approach of open plan toilet disconcerting though. Thank goodness there is a blind which can be lowered ... Disappointed that in winter there was no electric under blanket to ward off... More

I thought I had sent my review of Dolphin Guest House some time back but found it under 'draft', sorry. For any visitor to Cape Town who wished to stay in an inexpensive small hotel within easy distance of everything, overlooking the sea and very near the Waterfront Complex then Dolphin Inn is ideal. Parking in front is free and... More

Very homely and welcoming. Hosts Paul & Tania are doing a good job in caring for just about every need. There's a stocked fridge in the room with snacks and drinks and an honesty bar in the lounge.

The place is very nice and peaceful but not too far away from the activities of any nice and pleasant beaches around. You have fast food joints pubs and long stretch of long and not so busy road on which to try your skateboard along. The place give you a feeling very place and it is perfect B&B .. .

Perfect location right on the water. Friendly proprietors. Nicely appointed room (although not large). I was lucky to get a last-minute booking; generally requires booking ahead. Saw whales right from the front window. Overall delightful.
