What a fantastic surprise....the atmosphere, the friendly and welcoming owners, the room, the bathroom, so cosy, warm and homely....it felt wonderful to arrive here after a busy day.

So often one reads about areas in Cape Town that are unsafe, this is not one of them. Located on the ocean, the Dolphin is a warm and welcoming haven for a traveler.I stayed there three nights. The bed was comfortable and the room spacious. Breakfast is abundant: fruit, juices, cereals, breads tea and coffee, and cooked breakfast to order...

Great Hosts, Great Rooms and Great location. There are only two ocean view rooms, Room 8 is the best of the regularly priced rooms with great ocean views, though it is at street level, with passing traffic. Easy to get around using MyCiti Bus service and Uber, and within walking distance (if you're fit) to both the V&A Waterfront and...

Fantastic little B&B with great hosts in particular. Had a wealth of ideas and stories about Cape Town. Really good location near a few really good restaurants and walking distance from the V&A. Would recommend.

What a refreshing change from faceless corporate hospitality. The rooms are impeccable and perfect for holiday or business travelers. Paul and Tanya give a welcoming friendly vibe and actually cook and serve a bespoke breakfast. A trust setup for snacks and drinks all hours is rare and pretty cool. There seem to be plenty regulars which is a good sign....

The perfect position in Cape Town. Paul and Tania are great hosts. Very relaxed and relaxing... They make you feel like it is your home too. Rooms are quite small but well equipped and the lounge area offers plenty space and lovely views of the bay. Also, very close to a stop on the city sightseeing bus routes. We will...

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...
