As usual I stayed at DV when I visited SA recently, perfect seamless stay and best value for money. On this occasion the dolphins were very active and gave the regular show for all the guests. Highly recommend a stay when you are in PE.

Nice spacious room, lovely sea view and comfortable bed. Could use a bit of TLC .Stairs to get to unit were a bit of a problem with my luggage. Beautiful big bath in bathroom, nice comfortable chairs for watching tv.

This gem of a place has all the views that one can ask for over the bay of Algoa. Dolphins to watch and the lovely Chocca boats in season. The owner is just so precious. Always friendly an a warm welcome. Home from home.

Dolphin view is small intimate guest house with one of the finest settings of any guest house in SA. Owner Elaine is the darling aunt you could only wish for. rooms are spacious, comfortable. self catering minor meals a plus. slightly out of town, but then when on business that is what I look for. Beachview is my fav place.......

We stayed for 2 nights whilst travelling along the Garden Route. Just a short distance to Port Elizabeth, we used this guest house as an easy vantage point to the local attractions (PE & Addo Park etc). This guest house is an affordable self-catering premise and provides all necessary kitchen equipment and comforts needed for a quiet night in. We...
