We enjoyed the stay at Dunkley house. Comfortable rooms and nice pool area to refresh! The location is perfect, close to Long Street / Kloof Street with lots of restaurants and bars. Breakfast was great! The rooms located downstairs are noisy in the morning because they are just next to the breakfast area. Try to get a room upstairs or... More

We had a wonderful stay at Dunkley House in the beginning of the year. The room was very clean and the personnel extremely helpful. Location was good - very quiet area, but not too far away from downtown or good restaurants.

We had two great nights at Dunkley House. The staff and service was great. Our room a little tired and needing a bit of love. Maybe a curtain over the skylight might help.But all in all very enjoyable.

Fantastic retreat to retire to after exploring in town. The location is convenient to all downtown locations which we loved - very close to Company Gardens, easy to get to Bree and Long Streets and to Bo Kapp. Taxis to the botanical gardens, waterfront and Table Mountain, but taxis are inexpensive. The pool setting in the forecourt is fantastic -... More

We enjoyed our bright, nicely furnished room and the excellent breakfast. The location is ideal as safe and in walking distance to some nice restaurants, a beautiful park and the town center. We will be back!

Great little boutique hotel with very friendly, helpful staff. Special thanks to Grace!!. The location is great. Read in a previous negative review that the neighborhood was a little sketchy. (their car had been broken into) UNTRUE!! The neighborhood is actually quite nice. Since the city has a high crime rate we just took prudent precautions like one would in... More

Even though I only get to stay at Dunkley House once a year (or even less often) all the staff remember me and welcome me back with genuine friendliness. Eunice's breakfasts are as delicious as always as are the home-based biscotti. Nothing compares to the fabulous coffee with the biscotti while seated on my own private patio.
