          As a solo traveller, the Dolphin Inn was an excellent choice . The location was ideal, situated on the promenade at Mouille Point with both a red bus and Citibus stop outside and local restaurants within a safe 5 minute walk. The Victoria and Alfred Waterfront is a 25minute walk for someone as unfit as I am with a return taxi around R55. Best of all, the Dolphin Inn was being looked after by fellow Scots, Sandra and Mullen. They were always available for advice and booked trips and arranged car hire for me. A chat over breakfast set me up for the day ahead. They made my stay all the more enjoyable and hope to see them in the future.

          peaceful and welcoming ”
          I stayed at the Dolphin Inn Guesthouse in Capetown for my last couple nights in South Africa and thoroughly enjoyed it. Right across the street from the beautiful promenade that runs along the shoreline, it was a quiet oasis right in the middle of a busy metropolis. Great food, coffee and internet connection. But most of all the hosts, Tania and Paul, were so genuine and gracious--they make my stay there easy, relaxed and worry-free. Also, they have a beautiful cat who was so very friendly and precious--a big added plus in my view!

          Lovely loc 10 min walk from v&a but far enough away to feel relaxed. Not far from hop on hop off bus too. Nice breakfast lots of cold and hot food freshly cooked and mullen and sandra alwayz cheery and joking with u..but finishes at 9 so not for those who like lie in...sound travels from breakfast so we were woken every morningat 7 when it started. Room waz comfortable and bed good. Shower ok but took while to warm...the bathroom door is sliding and doesnt properly seal tight..didnt bother us but might other. Lovely guesthouse in good location overlooking mouille point...will be lovely when boardwalk complete. Noone around i n eve to socialize with so went out each nighf. Is a bar in room and lounge that is a n honesty one which is nice. Would stay here again if in area
