Friendly Guest House
1. Paul & Tania are great hosts. 2. Good safe location close to V&A Waterfront. 3. Good area for walking beside the ocean.
This was our second stay at the Dolphin Inn. Paul gave us a list of great restaurants in Cape Town. Great breakfast. We are planning to go back to the Dolphin Inn again next year.

Super location, small room
Location, breakfast, the soft cat
We had a great stay. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. The location is great. The only drawback, is the small room and bathroom. Perfect for a short stay.

Stays in Cape Town
Great breakfast prepared by our wonderful hosts; our hosts; location on the promenade and within walking distance of them wharf.
No problems, no worries. Hosts arranged for our late night pick-up from the A/P. The driver had the keys to let us in and he put the luggage in our room! Just a great way to unwind from the travel (from USA). We walked to the waterfront and took the hop-on, hop-off bus to get a feel for the area. This plus talks with the hosts provided a great start to our South Africa adventure.

Clean, comfortable, cozy!
It's run by a lovely couple, Tania and Paul, it has got a warm interior, and fabulous view!
Simple, pleasant and memorable. Its hosts, Tania and Paul, are avid travellers themselves and made the place a lively and comfortable through my short stay. Recommended for travellers who are looking for a warm B&B, with great value for money! Cheers.

Excellent stay overall, 15 mins walk to V&A
homely room, good location to V&A, friendly service
My stay at Dolphin Inn was excellent. It was beyond my expectation when I first saw my sea facing room. The staff are so friendly; the breakfast is amazing and it is a short 15 minutes walk to V&A Waterfront. I will not hesitate to stay here again when I return to Cape Town.
