The dolphin guest house is in a perfect location with stunning views. The facilities rooms ,pool and living area are just right. The location is great for people who like it quiet. It is not far at all from the town where their is a great selection of shops and restaurants. The golf in knysna is as good as anywhere in the world and is good value for money. When we return to SA we will definitely stay at Dolphins Hills again, oh and one other thing the host are lovely in every way. Thanks for a great time.

This is our second visit and we couldn't wait to get back Mike and Penny are superb hosts and amazing cooks! Breakfasts and evening meals are outstanding. Our room opens out onto the veranda that over looks the ocean....well worth the trip from the UK...

We stayed here with our children for three nights and can only emphasize the great hospitality. Penny and Mike, our hosts, have this sense for creating an atmosphere which makes you feel welcome and at home from the very first moment on. On two of the three evenings they prepared an outstanding meal for us. The rooms are tastefully equipped with paintings from the owner himself. A place to come back and stay for a longer time.

Stayed here for 3 nights in February and had a lovely time.the room was extremely clean with plenty of space.Penny and Mike were excellent hosts.The seating area outside by the pool has lovely views of the sea.We had 1 evening meal there which was really good and the breakfast excellent.The beach is only a 5 minute drive away and is amazing,just to stroll along the golden sand listening to the waves is so relaxing and there is a lovely hotel where you park which has an excellent cafe for coffee and delicious cakes and a restaurant where we had a good meal very reasonably priced.
