“L&M Weis - Americans in South Africa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2013

After spending a week traveling in the southern part of South Africa we found our way to Dolphins View Guesthouse and were welcomed by a wonderful hostess - Elaine - she was so warm and friendly. Our room was spacious , clean, and had a wonderful ocean view. That evening Elaine prepared a diner for us which was quite tastey. We spent the entire evening visiting and sharing stories with much laughter. We would recomend this guesthouse to anyone. Thanks Elaine!

This is our 3rd year staying at Dolphin View which is testament to Elaine's high standards. Accommodation is spotless and Elaine goes the extra mile to ensure a great memorable experience. Fantastic dolphin sighting. The view is breathtaking and rejuvenating. We highly recommend Dolphin's View.

I travel all over the country for work and staying at Dolphins View is always an enjoyable experience. Beautiful, clean rooms with fantastic ocean views and the soft sound of the sea filling the room makes falling asleep a dream. I always enjoy lighting a fire and having a drink while gazing out over the ocean with the sun setting behind it. I will always return again

I visited this guesthouse again on my trip to South Africa and I wasn't disappointed. Elaine has kept up the same standards as I found on my previous visit. Dolphinsview is situated on the beachfront and is certainly aptly named as we saw dophins frolicking in the sea everyday, we also saw whales. The rooms are very clean and comfortable furnished with all the amenities that you need for a pleasant stay. Elaine is very friendly and makes sure that you have everything that you need. I will certainly stay here again on my next holiday in SA,

I have traveled every 3 days to different locations in and around the country, for the last 36 months and I feel it imperative, to write a review, for Dolphins View Guest House, as I have yet to stay at a venue,where the hostess is more friendly, and accommodating,

The view is spectacular, the crisp clean sea breeze making you feel like you have just soared above the heavens for a while.

Throughout my many travels, for work, it is almost with a feeling of angst that we get to the places that was booked for us, but what a pleasant surprise was it, being met by a lovely hostess, welcoming us with such open arms.

You cannot help but feel like part of the family, 5 minutes after you've stepped into your unit.

All units are immaculately clean, and a lot of care is taken that everything one should need, is in the unit,
There is not a guest house that I have stayed in for the last 36 months, that has surprised me more.

It is with an open heart that I can recommend this Guest House to anyone needing to travel to Port Elizabeth.

Room Tip: Choose a place where you are welcome and feel at home.

Its very difficult to balance, value, hospitality and with a geat sea view, Elaine has managed this.
well done. my stay of about a month was superb throughout. You will see dolphins on most days, and parking is very safe in a quite location, 20 odd km's out of town is not far and is definitely worth the ride. The rooms are neat and functional and well maintained by friendly staff. there are a couple of good resturants within a 7 km radius. I can def. recommend the Guest House.
thank you
Douglas

Room Tip: most of the rooms have great sea views I enjoyed the bigger room no. 5
