Our visit included a comfortable and well equipped room at a reasonable price, lovely hosts (Paul, Tania and Mahe) delicious breakfasts, long walks along the promenade, great restaurants within a block or two and the Waterfront nearby. We would not hesitate to stay there again!

From the outset I felt so welcome here. The owners, Paul and Tania ,are friendly and chatty. They really made me feel at home. Room was spotlessly clean and reasonably priced given the prime location. Would come back and stay anytime. An added bonus is the beautiful cat, Mahe, who prowls the breakfast area looking for a lap to jump...

We stayed at the Dolphin Inn for five nights and couldn't have been happier. It was so comfortable, like a home away from home. And it was great to be able to stroll along the waterfront or gaze out the windows at the sea.

Dolphin Inn has a really cool retro charm about it that you don't easily find. The arty decor and layout of the guest house is so warm and welcoming that it feels as if you're staying with really good friends for a couple of days. It is so well located too! Close to everything from the V & A Waterfront...

Good breakfast, nice and clean rooms, nice people etc. But the nicest of all are those whale's breaching in front of the guesthouse. Tania and Paul are really nice people, and ideal guides for when you're visiting SA for the first time.

We had a wonderful stay at the Dolphin Inn, great friendly service at an excellent location. We were warmly welcomed on our late arrival and quickly directed to lovely place for dinner. The coffee was first class and the breakfast warm and delicious. Will definitely use this Guesthouse again when attending a Stadium event.

Both Paul and Tania are fantastics 'hosts'!! The rooms are well equipped, quality linen on the beds and decent pillows....a serious plus for me! Decent coffee and flat screen with DSTV. Stunning views with the ocean just across the road. Also within walking distance of some decent restaurants, the stadium and Waterfront. This venue is a definite for the future!!
