Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I travel a lot for business to various parts of the country, and I have never stayed so nicely before. Dolphin View Guest House has ALL of the comforts you would like and more. The view from the room was amazing, the indoor pool gave it such a nice vibe, the owner was friendly and assisted us with breakfast at the last minute, we had lights during load-shedding, and the rooms were huge!! I am very impressed and wish I could have this guest house wherever I travel. Absolutely recommended.

My family and l thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in the Seastar and Dolphin view rooms. Both rooms were spacious, comfortable, clean, had sea views and had all the expected amenities. For the Seastar room you will need to be comfortable with walking up a flight of stairs. The indoor pool is such a lovely day and l enjoyed my swim. The guest house is in a quiet, tranquil and peaceful area of Jeffery's Bay, and is perfect if you want to rest and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is also a close drive (3-5min) from the beach, shops and popular tourist attractions. The staff are professional, friendly and very accommodating. The breakfast is great too. Thank you to Anita and her team for such a pleasant stay.

A beautiful and clean room. The accommodation is equipped with a indoor (for rainy days) and outdoor pool (for sunny days). Anita is an amazingly friendly host and her delicious omelette with bacon, Mushrooms and cheese are a definite must-have for breakfast.

The owner and staff were quite friendly and warm. Although limited in choice, the breakfast was reasonable. Cleaning of room can improve, the shower head and tap fixed. For short stay, it is a great establishment.

Lovely quick get away with the family. Great little braai area with a pool as well an indoor pool for rainy days. Kids loved the nature trail. This is a little hidden gem. Shops and gas station also really close by.
