Elaine is a jewel that helped me without reservation on a very late notice. The view was to die for, and the room very comfortable and neat. i will recommend you to every one that travels that side, and will keep my promise one day to bring my wife with to stay over in the very same room. Thank you...

Dolphin View Guest House is Picture Perfect, What you see is what you get!....AND THEN SO MUCH MORE! I was trying to think of the right words to describe Dolphin View, yet I am afraid that this is one of those magical little secret hidden away places you find out can only be described when experienced by one self! Having...

What a great experience. We arrived with no reservations and Elaine could not be more welcoming. She really made us feel comfortable, the room was clean and comfortable with a fantastic view. Thanks for the lively conversation and helpful tips. We survived the rest of the trip and you were definitely one of our favorite places in our journey through...

My mom and I recently travelled to Port Elizabeth and stayed at the Dolphin View Guesthouse. The owner and hostess Elaine was extremely helpfull regarding directions, spontanous and really made us feel at home. Ronel, her assistant, was also very friendly. We had a magnificent view of the ocean from our room. I can honestly recommend this guesthouse to everybody...

The place is better than anywhere I have ever stayed in P.E, the view from the balcony is just breathtaking I've never seen anything like it from all the places I've stayed at in P.E from the big hotels to the tiny B&B's. Its quite the place to be if you want to get away from all the noise and...

Having been here before it's nice to return. This stay we saw more dolphins and whales than at any other time we have visited ZA. We had been at Hermanus but was disappointed... The whales offshore were giving a marvellous display. The service and ambience of Dolphins View are as always - excellent. Keep up the good work Elaine....

2 nights stay in the family room, which meant a early night's sleep since there was nowhere to go outside the room. average/good, but nothing special. Facilities are basic. Don't go out of your way to stay here but should you be in the neighborhood it's really fine. Only partial ocean view not from the family room Great cleaning though!

Not only did we see dolphins in the water at this superb spot, we also saw and enjoyed the company of Elaine, a brilliant and most hospitable host who offered us a huge glass of wine on arrival. Our room was very spacious, comfortable and clean, with a large balcony area overlooking the water. We would thoroughly recommend a stay...

The best feature of this guesthouse is definitely its location - with the ocean view rooms you can literally watch the dolphins out of your window! But even without dolphins it's truly the view one can dream of waking up with. Elaine was very nice not just to describe the surroundings and the best places to go to, but also...
