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...

After reading all the reviews of this guesthouse on Trip Advisor I could not wait to stay at Dolphins View Guesthouse. I booked our accommodation in mid November 2012 for February 2013 as it seemed to be the top choice of establishment in the area. Four days before our arrival, I confirmed with the Guesthouse our 2 night stay and...

I have just returned to Scotland following a fabulous week staying at Dolphins View Guest House. My room (apartment 1) was spotless, spacious and beautifully decorated with the added personal touch of a teddy bear on my bed. The room, complete with it's own large balcony, bathroom, kitchen and living area, had a stunning view of the Indian ocean and,...

The guesthouse is placed in a wondeful village outside of Port Elisabeth - quiet and direct at the oceanside. A sand beach 25km long is close to the b+b. The name is well done - we have seen more than 50 dolphins from our room! The rooms are very clean and Elaine gives you from the very first minute the...
