Our recent stay at Dolphin Inn was first rate. Our hosts, Sandra and Mullen, were delightful and helpful. The guesthouse has a terrific location for walks/runs along the ocean, easy walking distance to the waterfront and beyond and visits to local restaurants. The atmosphere is warm and wonderfully friendly. It's very clean and comfortable. We look forward to more stays...

So glad I found this little jem where we stayed during a hectic trip of business and pleasure. The Inn is brilliantly run by friendly and accommodating Mike and Debbie, who also cooks the yummiest breakfast and serves the best coffee in Cape Town. The luxury suite and the dining area has stunning views across the sea. We will definitely...

You couldn't wish for a better location, right on the promenade, with a beautiful sea view. The CT red tourist bus stops right outside. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable, breakfast personal and cooked as you like it with a very friendly atmosphere. However, it is a little noisy as its on the main road and especially bad when the...

The following morning we awoke to a beautiful breakfast spread with both cold and hot options, made to order,...

The Dolphin Inn is a nice place to stay. The only thing you might want to consider is if you have any allergies to cats. They have a cat that wanders around the lobby area while you are having breakfast, which isn't great if you are allergic. The room was ok, a little small. The location is nice and you...

I had always seen the Dolphin Inn on the beach front and when I found the price was right I booked for a fortnight. I was a bit hesitant because I have had experiences of these "quaint' places. Anyway to my surprise it turned out to be very suitable for a single guest and I felt quite at home. Thanks...

The room was well equipped and beds comfy. bathroom and shower worked perfectly with a sliding door, saving space. No airconditioner in the room, but opening windows allowed fresh...
