Dongola was perfect. I was attending some Wedding functions in the area and The Dongola was my oasis. The staff were all extremely helpful and respected the privacy I needed but were there when I needed assistance. I could not recommend highly enough.

We had a fabulous stay at Dongola House. Welcoming friendly hosts, a lovely clean room leading out onto a magnificent garden. And a superb breakfast before departure.

Wonderful people (Sally, Mike, Natalie and co!), attention to detail, beautiful views! The owners, Sally and Mike, have travel and hospitality in their blood. Plenty of tips for local sightseeing, travel and more, from both Mike and Sally... Free upgrades on both our check-ins (yes, we came back for more!). And, trust Mike to serve you the best breakfast in town, topped off with some caviar!! Wonderful to see everyone chipping in to make you feel at home.

Excellent choice for Cape Town leisure
Very obliging and solicitous hosts who let us in very early. Comfortable room and lovely views. Fairly easy to find and good things to do nearby, as well as being well-placed for trips around the Cape and Cape Town area. Would definitely stay again.

One of my best stays ever
The room, the hospitality, staff, breakfast - everything about Dongola House was just fantastic. I have never been so glad that I decided to stay over the night before rather than fly in early for a meeting in Cape Town. What a wonderful place!

Excellent guest house
Excellent guest house run by super-friendly ex-pat British couple. Lovely rooms, breakfast and strong w-fi signal. High point, aside the service, was the proper swimming pool that you could swim in (as opposed to the plunge pool 'swimming pools' so commonly found.

A gem in Constantia
I loved my short stay. The room was very well appointed, neat and comfortable. Breakfast was a real treat: a good selection that was well prepared to my liking.
