“Lovely Stay, Great Value, Clean and Perfect for the Family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

My family and I visited in late June and stayed in two of the rooms - Dolphin Suite (myself, wife and 2 kids) and the Whale Room (grandparents). We found the accommodation to be fantastic, the breakfast was amazing and the location was ideal for us. We didn't want to be located right at the beach and the central location at the top of the hip was perfect. Anita Meijberg was very fast at e-mailing back booking confirmation and details.

Room Tip: Dolphin Suite and Whale Room have great views!

This is a very unique setting with an indoor pool and 'floating' breakfast table.
We enjoyed building a nice big fire on a chilly June evening. The staff were friendly and happy to advise on eateries, attractions and activities.

Planned a special weekend away and stayed in the dolphin suite. The owner was very friendly, unfortunately the cold water was completely dirty and muddy, apparently it has been like that for 3 weeks. I made my booking the week before arriving so that would have been nice to know. Because of this we had no cold water, meaning we could not shower at all, and the bath we had to leave standing to cool for over 1 hour.

The bed was a bit too stiff for our liking and the dstv channels on the tv were all set to childrens shows, which I understand because there are young children living with the owner downstairs, but would have been nice to be able to have something interesting to watch on the tv. This also leaves me to comment on the young children, if I was on honeymoon I would have been a bit put off by hearing children playing and running around right outside our window and the dogs barking, which echoes very well down the cliff.

The indoor swimming pool was a big reason we took the accommodation, unfortunately the water was freezing. Not being heated is terrible with indoor pools that get no sun, this was made worse by the fact that we could not shower or bath immediately after trying to get into the pool, so we were quite cold afterwards. Gorgeous to have breakfast there tho.

Another thing is the rates listed on the website is different from the rates I was told over the phone. In total, face value great accommodation but it would have been nice to be told about the cold water in advance.

Dolphin View is in a residential area on a hill a few minutes drive from the centre of Jeffrey’s Bay. It is run by a young Dutch girl who lives on the premises and who couldn’t be more friendly and helpful. Its striking feature is that the guest rooms open on to the indoor pool, which creates a luxurious and characterful feel. Our room had its own balcony and a comfortable double bed, with the en-suite unusually not fully walled off from the bedroom. Breakfast was served at the poolside and was very pleasant, with a cooked option provided.

Stayed in Jefferey's Bay for 2 nights on our FIFA World Cup trip between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. Football supporters aside the town is quiet in winter, but the dolphin view is a guest house to enjoy. The rooms are set around an indoor pool, making it a little different and worthwhile.
