I would like to say the room was clean and comfortable, but it wasn't, the furniture was badly stianed, and the carpet a bit crunchy under foot!

The "open plan " bathroom left things to be desired, the bath looked as though it hadn't been cleaned in a while

The furniture in the bedroom was old and badly stained, and the dressing table was OK if you were a dwarf with no knees
The TV was extremely old and was fitted into a hole cut into fitted wardrobes, a very badly done piece of work

Wifi only worked if you went into the room next door

All in all our room was very tired and damp

The breakfast and hosting went someway to redeeming itself

We looked at the other rooms there before we left, and we definitely got the short straw.

My advice is not to choose the Ocean room, but one of the others

We are sorry you didn't have a good experience at Dolphin View. We have looked seriously into your remarks and have decided to change a few things in the Ocean Room. In fact we have started revamping the room already and I am happy to put foto's of the end results on Tripadvisor when finished. Regarding the WiFi just note that all our rooms have WiFi but there is a surcharge to use it.

We stayed 2 nights @ the Dolphin View Guesthouse in Jeffrey's Bay. Our room had a beautiful view overlooking the ocean. The room and en-suite bathroom is spacious and neat, but the décor is old-fashioned. The breakfast display was great and the hostess was friendly and helpful to ensure our stay in Jeffrey's Bay was pleasant

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.
